If you have a fracture in your drain pipe it can be a really costly and invasive procedure. This is because you would need to dig up the part of the path or garden that the pipe lays beneath and then replace it with a new length of pipe.
If you have experienced blocked drains in Aldershot and do not wish to have the hassle of digging up the whole neighbourhood, call us instead.
We provide competitively priced drain relining, Aldershot can count on to save them time and money. This makes it possible for us to fix a leaking pipe with very little, or in some cases, no need to dig up the path the pipe is under. Instead, we just feed a liner into the existing pipe which is then inflated and heated causing the resin to set. This is then bonded to the old pipe and the water is able to flow along this new inner section without leaking out.
Reducing the chances of a blockage occurring with your outdoor drainpipes is a matter of clearing away every little thing that might create a blockage ahead of time. This involves a little prior preparation.
Wind can cause parts of plants to detach, leaves obviously but also smaller branches and twigs too. Then the rain washes everything into the outside drain. When it all mixes together it can come to be a blockage.
Anytime the little branches and the leaves that have been blown off the trees are swept up this helps prevent the build-up of back garden debris that may be the cause of blockages.
As the name suggests, pitch fibre drains were built from wooden cellulose and coal tar residue rather than the more durable clay materials available at the time. They were first introduced in the 1960s and were commonplace until they were banned in the late 1980s.
This helped to make these a low cost substitute, but cut down their effective service life. No new pitch fibre pipes have been installed for 30 years, but pitch fibre drains in Bournemouth that were installed are right now beginning to fail.
Pitch fibre drains were the economical alternative to clay drainpipes and were sought-after by many home and business owners. They mostly have a lifetime of about 40 years, and so countless of these particular low price pipes are now failing. When they fail, they create all sorts of problems for the domestic properties and commercial properties that count upon them.
One of the problems is that whenever the pressure of the ground piled on top of the drain drainpipes is too much for the pipes to handle they start to warp. This results in them being more oval shaped as opposed to round which makes it easier for them to become blocked.
When drain pipes become misshapen, as often happens with pitch fibre drains over time, the water cannot flow efficiently and the pipes become obstructed.
When a pipe loses the waterproof coal tar lining it is a weak spot that water can leak out from. The water as it leaks out could attract the roots of trees and they can grow into the pipes causing damage to the pipes and blocked drains in Aldershot.
