Why Do Drains Get Blocked?
Drains block and clog for all sorts of reasons. Gradual build-up of leaves, silt and mud can lead to a flood when the outdoor drain gets blocked. Indoors blockages can be caused by grease, food or large objects that accidentally fall down the drains. To name a few objects we have found blocking the drain: false teeth, cell phones, spectacles and all kinds of children’s toys.
How To Unblock A Drain
There are few methods to use to unblock your drain. For example, rodding is best used when the blockage is relatively accessible like in the u-bend of a toilet or in a kitchen sink. We might use high pressure water jetting to unblock an inaccessible sewer or drain. And if we need to see where an inaccessible blockage lies in a pipe, we’ll send in a remote controlled CCTV camera. All this equipment is carried by fully trained engineers.
Clearing Blocked Drains
More often than not the most economical way to clear a blocked drain is to use a high pressure drain jetting machine. The process is to force high pressure through the drain, cleaning debris, stripping hard scaling, breaking down concrete and cleaning the interior of the drain as it passes through.
How Your Drains Get Blocked
Silt and sludge stick to the inside of the drain, and with the help of fat and grease, over time the drain becomes blocked. This will happen to most drains, but a good clean is best left to a qualified engineer.
When And How Often Should A Drain Be Jetted?
The length of the drain, its diameter, the type and amount of deposit build are the main factors of time. In general, drain jetting can take 2 to 4 hours, but once our qualified engineer has had a look you will be given a better time estimate. You don’t have to wait for a drain to block you can call us any time, even if you haven’t had your drains cleared for a long period of time.
Pipes, Drains And Sewer Inspection Cameras
Using the latest equipment we can quickly identify faults within the pipe work of any drainage system using a camera. A camera can inspect the interior of drains and sewers that would otherwise be inaccessible. We can provide you with a detailed report of the pipe with video footage. CCTV drain inspection surveys save a lot of time and money, but the only other way to get this sort of detailed information is to excavate the drain!
What Can CCTV Footage Reveal In you Drain?
CCTV drain inspection surveys commonly reveal drain blockages, mis-aligned blockages, silt build-up, off set drain joints, fractured pipes, collapsed drains and tree roots. Once our drainage engineers have viewed the CCTV survey footage of your drain they will advise you on the best course of action to deal with your drainage. A CCTV survey can spot issues long before they develop into something costly, so they could save you a lot of money.
Our 3 Step CCTV Drain Survey?
Once we’ve found an access point the CCTV camera can be pushed down the pipe. If you have a nice wide pipe the camera will be mounted on the remote control robot.
The engineer looks at the images from the camera and logs what they see, for example, location of any blockage or structural defect in the pipe. This video footage can be made available to you so you can watch it.
The report informs you of what we’ve found listing any problems and their location within the pipe. The report comes complete with photos and video footage if required. The engineer can then get on and clear the drain, or for bigger problems arrange for a quote to be done.
