CCTV Surveys

CCTV Surveys in Bicester

Clogged drains are an unpleasant thing to deal with and the reasons they become clogged can be quite prolonged and complex. It used to be a case that reaching the source of a blocked drain was carried out through guess work and digging up the entire pipe. That has improved with the use of CCTV surveys in Bicester.

One of the most effective tools at our disposal, we use this technology to identify and determine the cause of a clog using a long and flexible fibre optic camera system. These long and thin digital cameras are fed into the drain network and the images are sent back to the operator.

Through the use of these digital cameras, our team can locate the problem and afterwards demonstrate to the customer how our experts can resolve the problem. This means our team are not trying lots of other things to address your problem. Our experts will know the best course of action to take straight away.

Should you have a blocked drainpipe and would like our advice or to book one of our CCTV surveys in Bicester, give us a call on 01869 876005.

Drain Relining Bicester

Should you find a split in your sewer pipe, this can be an incredibly time-consuming and costly issue to rectify.

Should you have a broken drain pipe and wish to avoid the disruption of digging up the whole road, enlist our drain relining in Bicester.

Roots that grow below ground can in some cases grow into the pipes and drains, this might then cause those pipes to fracture and burst. Drain relining permits us to fix a dripping pipe with little or in some cases no need to dig up the path the pipe is underneath. Trees are certainly a pain when it comes to drains and pipes, the fallen leaves obstruct the drains pipes and the roots can damage the pipes below.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Bicester

Given that it is not actually you putting stuff into your outside drain the most effective approach to prevent obstructed drainpipes is by means of avoidance. You are not necessarily in the garden checking everything that is washed down there so you have to clear away everything that may potentially cause an issue. Whenever it rains, loose leaves, bags and other objects that are on the floor get washed into outdoor drains.

This can accumulate over time and create a blockage and lead to a blocked drain. Our biggest tip on reducing any risk to an outside drain is to clear away any loose back garden clutter such as leaves, twigs and litter. Having a garden compost stack is a thing many gardeners recommend. Whenever you sweep up your leaves you can add them to the compost stack keeping your outdoor drains in Bicester clear.

It is also a good idea to grab litter in the yard such as shopping bags that have blown in. This will always keep the back garden looking good and reduces the odds of the drainpipes getting blocked.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Bicester

During the 1960s, a sought-after pipe style saw extensive use which continued up until it was banned in the late 1980s. It was more affordable in comparison to other options and it was claimed to last for 40 years. Unfortunately, those 40 years are more or less spent, and today many pitch fibre drains which were so in demand 40 years earlier are starting to break down.

Pitch fibre drains in Bicester were actually not made using clay. Plastics were less sophisticated than their modern counterparts and so weren’t widely used either. The pitch fibre drains were manufactured from wood pulp together with bitumen.

Any time the pressure of the earth piled on top of the drain pipes is too much for the pipes to handle they begin to warp and become more oval shaped instead of round. When pitch fibre drains in Bicester become misshapen as happens with pitch fibre drains over time the water will not flow effectively and the drainpipes will become obstructed.

Property damage from damaged pipes is a real problem. Water logged foundations can become weakened, or the earth beneath a building can become marshy and this can be the cause of subsidence.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Causes a Drain to Block?

Drainpipes can become blocked due to more ways than one requiring the expertise of our drainage Bicester experts. When certain things get flushed down the toilet, obstructions will occur. Such items include nappies and sanitary pads.

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we regularly unclog two both outdoor and indoor drains. If the drainpipe is an external drain, then the issue is often brought on by trees. Often, the roots of the tree will grow through the pipe causing fractures to occur. Likewise, the presence of roots can present an obstacle for items to snag on, causing further blockages.

Lots of things can trigger an indoor drain to become clogged, such as toilet paper and foreign objects. There are also things that you perhaps would not anticipate too, like toys which kids have put down the toilet.

Whenever a kitchen sink gets clogged it is commonly due to the presence of food waste, fats and greases. This creates a blockage which leads to the presence of standing water that stagnates and begins to smell.
