Our team offers specialised drain repair services for domestic clients, addressing everything from minor blockages to major system overhauls, ensuring your drains function efficiently and effectively.
How do you find the cause?
Find the cause of your drainage issue.
Utilising state-of-the-art technology like CCTV drain cameras, we conduct an inspection of the drainage system. This real-time visual assessment allows us to delve deep into the drains, offering a clear view of any obstructions, damages, or abnormalities. This diagnostic process ensures that we understand the issue, be it blockages from accumulated debris, cracks due to ground movement, tree root intrusions, or any other disruption.
Once the root cause is identified, our team collaborates to propose the most effective and sustainable solution for the specific issue. Depending on the diagnosis, this could range from simple unblocking procedures using high-pressure jetting to more complex tasks like relining damaged sections or, in more extreme cases, excavating and replacing compromised segments. For every recommendation we provide, our focus remains on minimising disruption to the household, ensuring the longevity of the repair, and offering the most cost-effective solution. By customising our approach based on the challenges each domestic client's drainage system presents, we ensure optimal functionality and peace of mind for homeowners.
How will you repair the drain?
Learn about the different methods our team can take to repair.
Our team is adept at handling a broad spectrum of drainage issues faced by domestic clients, thanks to a wealth of experience and continuous training in the latest repair techniques. From the tasks like unclogging blockages with high-pressure water jetting to managing more complex challenges such as root intrusions, we can handle them. Our team can implement drain-cleaning solutions to restore pipes to their original condition.
Understanding the importance of minimal disruption to our domestic clients, we use non-intrusive repair methods wherever possible. Pipe relining, for instance, allows us to fix damaged sections of a pipe without the need for extensive excavation. In this procedure, a new pipe lining is inserted and set in place using either ambient or heat curing, rejuvenating the old pipeline and extending its lifespan. Similarly, we deploy patch repairs, targeting only the affected section. However, in scenarios where the damage is extensive, our team is prepared for full-scale excavations and replacements.
How do I know I need my drains repaired?
There are a few signs for you to spot before things get worse.
For domestic clients, the early signs of drainage problems can often be subtle, manifesting as minor inconveniences before escalating into more prominent issues. One of the primary indicators is slow drainage. If sinks, bathtubs, or showers are taking longer than usual to drain, it's a clear sign that there might be a blockage forming or an existing one worsening. Foul odours emanating from the drains can also be a red flag, suggesting trapped debris, sewage backup, or even decay within the pipes. Regularly hearing gurgling sounds post-flushing or during drainage can indicate trapped air due to blockages or potential damage to the drain system.
Sometimes, the signs are more visible. Wet patches or unexplained dampness in the garden or around the property can point towards a leak or break in the underground pipes. This could lead to more severe problems, including foundation damage. Similarly, cracks in the walls or floors can be the first signs of extensive water damage or shifting due to drainage complications.
How can I prevent issues?
Avoid flushing non-biodegradable items like wet wipes, sanitary products, or heavy paper towels down toilets; be wary of washing grease or food remnants down sinks, as they can solidify and cause blockages; and consider using strainers to catch hair and soap scum in showers and bathtubs.
Regularly flushing drains with hot water can help in breaking down minor obstructions and keeping drains clear. Additionally, investing in routine professional drain checks can catch and address minor issues before they escalate.
