Drain Relining

Blocked Drains Bournemouth

Drain Relining Bournemouth

Breaks and damage to an underground drainage pipe can often present as a major inconvenience. The traditional solution would be to dig up the section of road until the broken drainpipe is located and replace it with a different length. Fortunately, such methods are a thing of the past thanks to the latest innovation – drain relining in Bournemouth.

Advances in technology mean we are now able to use a drain liner to basically make a brand-new drainpipe within the existing one. The liner is impregnated with a special resin, inserted into the existing pipe, inflated and heated. It expands and adheres to the inside forming a brand-new pipe.

Trees can be a major contributor to blocked drains in Bournemouth. The leaves block the drain pipes and the roots may weaken the pipes causing cracks to appear. Tree roots can in some cases grow into the pipes and drains. This might then induce those pipes to break and leak and create blockages necessitating drain relining in Bournemouth.

Drain relining helps us to repair a leaking pipe with hardly any or, in some cases, no need to dig up the road the pipe is under.

If you have blocked drains, Bournemouth should call 24 Hour Emergency Services immediately on 01202 348207. Our team are here 24 hours a day to ensure you get the help you need as quickly as possible.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Bournemouth

Avoidance is the most reliable approach when it comes to preventing outdoor drains becoming blocked.

The primary issue is that it is not always you putting things into these drainpipes. Whenever it rains, leaves, bags and other items that are on the floor get washed into outside drainpipes. This can accumulate with time causing blockages in outdoor drains in Bournemouth.

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, our main recommendation on ways to reduce the chances of an outdoors drain clog is to clear away any loose backyard debris. This includes sweeping up leaves, twigs and litter long before it gets washed into the drainpipes.

Whenever you sweep up the leaves, add them to a compost heap as this is a great way to recycle these materials, setting them aside for future use.

To prevent plastic bags going down the drains and creating a clog, the easiest thing to do is pick these up when they blow into the back garden.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Bournemouth

Back in the 1960s, clay pipes were considered to be quite expensive and plastic technologies were still largely in their infancy. As a cost-effective alternative, pitch fibre drains were manufactured using wood pulp and bitumen. This translated into great savings for the customer but came at a cost which was a sacrifice in the overall integrity of the pipe.

Pitch fibre drains in Bournemouth were the most popular economical option for drainpipes, and were the go-to choice for many throughout the 70s and well into the 80s. They were eventually banned in the late 1980s. Many older residential properties along with company buildings make use of this sort of drainpipe.

Having a lifetime of 40 years, pitch fibre drains were a truly sought-after alternative by those shopping for an economical solution of mending or installing drains. Sadly, the compromised integrity of these pipes led to many issues developing. Today, many of these pipes are in urgent need of repair work.

Often, these pipes can warp and collapse under the weight of any soil placed on top of them resulting in blocked drains in Bournemouth. This means that the space inside the pipe is narrowed and this makes them much easier to block.

Property damage from warped and broken 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. All in all, those with pitch fibre drains in Bournemouth will no doubt be in need of the professional help of 24 Hour Emergency Services.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

Drainpipes can easily end up being obstructed for a lot of reasons. Nappies, children’s toys and sanitary towels get flushed into the toilet, even if they really should not. This can easily result in the drains being clogged up.

The drainpipes our team are required to unblock come under a couple of distinctive groups:

  • External Drains
  • Inside Drainpipes

Trees can be an issue for outside drains. Leaves and small branches clog the drains up putting them out of commission.

Nappies which are put into the toilet gather together and obstruct the drains and hinder just about anything from successfully passing beyond them.

Kitchen sinks and their drainpipes can get blocked, this is not a pleasurable problem for the property owner because the kitchen sink will not empty correctly and smell unpleasant.

Clearing the obstructed drains is something we could help you with, give 24 Hour Emergency Services a phone call on 01202 348207 for all your blocked drain Bournemouth problems.
