Through meticulous design and selection of appropriate materials, our proficient engineers can rehabilitate your drainage with a focus on efficiency and cost reduction.

No-Dig Drain Lining: Efficient Restoration

Drain lining, a revolutionary method also known as cured-in-place pipe lining, addresses drainage issues by creating a new seal within the pipes. This innovative technique involves inserting a liner saturated with epoxy into the affected drain, which is then allowed to cure, establishing a strong and waterproof barrier without excavating.

This non-invasive technology can be applied to drains with diameters of 75mm or larger. It offers an expedient and effective fix for various drainage problems by reinforcing the pipe’s structure from within.

Localised Patch Repair: Targeted Fixes

Repairing a drain using localized methods offers an efficient way to repair particular segments of a drainage system that are damaged, avoiding the need for full pipe replacement. This process involves employing trenchless technology to place patch liners which rectify issues such as cracks, holes, and fractures in the drain. This ensures repairs are both economical and less intrusive.

Focusing exclusively on compromised areas within the drainage system during patch repairs not only reduces expenses but also cuts down on repair time. It limits disturbance to nearby environments by concentrating efforts only where necessary.

Resolving Recurrent Blockages

Persistent blockages in a drainage system can be highly troublesome, yet with comprehensive examinations and planned measures, such obstacles can be overcome successfully.

Preventative Tips to Keep Drains Running Smoothly

To avert drainage issues, including blocked drains, it is vital to engage in routine preventative maintenance. By conducting periodic inspections and cleansings of your drain systems, you can dodge serious harm to your premises. It’s important not to dispose of fats, oils, and leftover food into the drains as they tend to eventually solidify leading to clogs.

Root encroachment and blockages are particularly common problems for older pipes made from materials like concrete or clay. Hence upgrading pipe materials could play an essential role in preventing such complications. Regular removal of scaling within the pipes—particularly those situated within high-use areas like kitchens and bathrooms—is imperative in staving off scale accumulation that leads to blocked drainage pathways.

What to Do in a Drainage Emergency

Recognising early indicators of a blockage is crucial during a drainage emergency. Signs that require immediate response include toilets struggling to flush and foul smells coming from drains, which often suggest blocked toilets. To prevent exacerbating the problem before help arrives, refrain from using the impacted fixtures.

It’s vital to swiftly enlist professional services to avoid additional harm and ensure your system resumes normal function. Our team offers emergency call-out services every day of the year, ensuring you receive timely and efficient resolutions for issues like blocked drains and toilets.
