CCTV Drain Surveys
A CCTV drainage survey was carried out with a camera system, which is placed down the drains using rods, to determine if there are any faults or underlying issues within the system.
This type of technology has now become an essential tool in the industry and is a very cost-effective way to inspect and carry out surveys in underground drains, sewers, and culverts.
CCTV drainage surveys allow data to be collated safely and efficiently, without the need for operatives to go into confined spaces to discover any underlying issues that can be hazardous for them and more importantly the customer
CCTV drainage surveys are a cost-effective way to ensure there are no underlying issues with the drainage system without the need for excavation
When a blockage has been discovered, they are used to determine the root cause of that particular blockage.
Drain installations play a crucial role in managing water flow and preventing water damage in residential and commercial spaces. Proper installation and maintenance of drains are essential to ensure effective drainage and avoid issues like flooding, water pooling, and structural damage.
Types of Drains:
There are various types of drains available for different purposes, including:
- French drains: Used to redirect excess water and prevent water buildup in areas such as basements, yards, and crawlspaces.
- Floor drains: Installed in basements, laundry rooms, and garages to remove water and prevent flooding.
- Shower drains: Designed to collect and drain water from showers and prevent water damage in bathrooms.
- Gutter drains: Installed to channel rainwater away from the roof and foundation of a building.
Drain jetting is a high-efficiency method for cleaning and unclogging drainage systems. Like a breath of fresh air sweeping through a smoky room, drain jetting utilizes the power of pressurized water to blast away obstacles, restore flow, and maintain the health of your drainage system.
But how does it work? Picture a specialized hose, connected to a high-pressure water unit. The hose is designed to withstand significant pressure and is equipped with a nozzle that directs water jets in multiple directions. When this hose is introduced into a blocked pipe, it unleashes a gale of pressurized water that can dislodge and dismantle stubborn blockages. It's an elegant dance of raw power and precision, turning water into a tool for efficient pipe restoration.
This process excels at eradicating a variety of clogs, from stubborn fat and grease accumulations to intrusive tree roots and hardened silt. And it's not just about unblocking. Regular drain jetting can be an excellent preventative measure, eliminating the buildup of the debris before it transforms into a problematic obstruction. It's like a regular health check-up for your drain pipes, ensuring they remain in top condition.Read More
Drain re-lining is an excellent way to repair drains without the hassle of excavation. It is also a very cost effective way to repair broken drains while keeping disruption to a minimum.
Drain re-lining involves a method called inversion, which is a process of installing a new pipe or lining which bonds to the inside of the damaged pipe. Water and air pressure is used to fit the lining tightly and securely against the wall of the damaged pipe, restoring the free flow function of the drain or sewer.
Broken drain work is usually covered by your home insurance, however it would cost you more to raise a claim on your policy as it will increase your premiums and you will usually have to pay a hefty excess before the work is carried out.Read More
Pitch fibre pipes were used between the 1950's and 1970's and are a poor type of drainage material. Normal waste water can drain smoothly through pitch fibre piping, however it can react adversely when hot water, fats or oils run through it.
Pitch fibre is made from wood cellulose and coal tar which over time warps when it is exposed to water and high temperatures.
We can carry out a CCTV survey to determine if you have pitch fibre piping and what condition it is in. Based on this information we can then give you a solution if it is required.Read More
A soak away is a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) and is effectively a hole filled with rubble, stone or crates that allows the water to be evenly soaked into the ground without causing flooding. Soak away's should not be installed within clay soils as this will cause major problems with waterlogging and flooding.
Soak away's are an effective way to drain storm water at the source instead of putting pressure on sewer systems that are more prone to water damage.
The great thing about soak away's is that they are very easy to maintain and much more cost effective than other drainage solutions. It is advisable however that you make sure they are checked every couple of months for any silting or contamination.Read More
Toilet unblocking is a common issue that many homeowners encounter. A blocked toilet can be quite inconvenient and unpleasant, leading to an inability to flush properly and potential overflow. The most effective way to address a blocked toilet is by using a plunger. Ensure that there is enough water in the toilet bowl to cover the rubber part of the plunger.
While it's a common problem that many people face, it's not something that should be taken lightly. Ignoring a blocked toilet can lead to more significant problems down the line, such as overflowing and flooding.
Position the plunger over the drain opening and vigorously plunge up and down to create suction and dislodge the clog. It may take a few attempts before the blockage is cleared. If the plunger method doesn't work, it's advisable to seek professional assistance to avoid causing further damage to the plumbing system.Read More
