Drain Relining

Drain Relining Bristol

Cracks to an underground drainage pipe can certainly be a pain. The more traditional remedy would be to dig up the section of broken pipe and change it with a brand new piece. If you have a weakened sewer line pipe or drainage pipe and don’t wish to have the disturbance of digging up the whole road to change a length of drainpipe, why not choose drain relining in Bristol instead?

Trees are certainly trouble when it concerns drains and pipes because the leaves block the drainpipes and the roots can damage the below ground pipes. If ever this takes place, then the very first thing you most likely notice is the smell and possibly a permanently marshy area in the garden where the dirty water has come to the surface.

This is absolutely not a good thing to have in the back garden. 24 Hour Emergency Services understand that the idea of digging up a length of pipe is really not a positive one. There is an easier, less messy and less intrusive solution. Bristol drain relining offers us the solution to insert an all new pipe within the old one without a lot of mess and fuss. This means the water runs inside the new watertight inner pipe that has bonded to the old damaged one and the leak is no more.

Our staff has been dealing with drainage issues of all types all over the Bristol area. Have you detected a repulsive odour in your house or yard? Do you assume you may have an obstructed drain pipe or one that is in need of repair? Get in touch on 01179 057 717.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Bristol

Protecting against the outdoor drains clogging is about getting rid of everything that may create a blockage ahead of time. That requires a bit of prior preparing. The main things that go down the outside drains and create obstructions are leaves, little branches and sprigs from shrubs.

They get washed down the drain and eventually cause a clog. The most reliable way to prevent a build-up of fallen leaves is to frequently clear them away from the back garden. Brushing all of them up and clearing out your gutter system will protect against unseen build-ups, alongside the other clutter such as small branches and leaves that may accumulate.

If you are at all interested in gardening or growing things in your garden, you will already be aware of the real benefits of a compost stack as these are a fantastic means of trying to keep the quantities of loose debris and vegetation to a minimum.

It is also practical to grab and bin rubbish in the back garden like plastic bags that have blown in. This will always keep the back garden looking good and should reduce the chance of the drainpipes getting blocked in the first place. Contact the experts at 24 Hour Emergency Services today.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Bristol

Pitched fibre drains were not made using durable clay.  Plastic-based materials were simply not as advanced as they are these days, so these were generally never used. The pitched fibre drains were manufactured from wood pulp and bitumen instead. Unfortunately, Bristol pitched fibre drains were definitely the inexpensive option in drain pipes which were extremely in demand over the course of the 1970s until they were phased out in the late 1980s.

Many older residential properties, as well as company premises, make use of the sort of drain pipe known as pitch fibre drains. Having a lifespan of 40 years, pitched fibre drains were generally a preferred choice for those home developers and homeowners that were trying to find an economical way of installing or mending drains.

Simply because that is a very efficient shape to allow water and the various other waste we flush down our toilets, drains are circular. Whenever the drains that are not as rigid as the standard clay drainpipes succumb to the pressure of the earth above them, they are forced out of shape and could easily become clogged or cracked due to the new oval shape.

The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak more and block.  In addition to this, if the coal tar inner comes away from the pipe it will leave areas that are no longer watertight and the water can begin to leak into the surrounding earth.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Bristol

A blocked drainpipe is certainly not a pleasing thing to have as the initial indication is often a very bad smell that will not go away.

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we know a clog in your sewer pipe or the drains leaving your property might be a serious problem. To start with, there is the smell which is far from pleasing. Then there is the issue that your sinks will not drain, and will leave dirty water in the kitchen sink and contributes to the smell. The toilet will likely also not flush away and may start to get backed-up and spill over which can result in the need to replace your carpets in the bathroom.

Whenever a fractured pipe is blocked, there is a chance it may fracture more and dirty foul smelling water could rush out. In the event that this is in the road, it is not very pleasant for you and your next door neighbours. In the event that it is in your home, it might mess up mats and become a health hazard as well.

There is some good news. When you detect the toilet not flushing away correctly or a funny odour that you cannot get rid of, we are available 24 hours a day to prevent it from getting worse and to sort the situation quickly. Ring up our friendly staff on 01179 057 717.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Causes A Blocked Drain?

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

The drainpipes our team is required to unblock comes under a couple of distinctive groups:

  • External Drains
  • Inside Drainpipes (for example, the bathroom, toilet or kitchen drains)

Trees could be an issue for outside drains as the leaves and small branches clog them up.

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 and this is not a pleasurable problem for the property owner because the kitchen sink will not empty correctly and they smell unpleasant. Clearing the obstructed drains is something we could help you with, so give 24 Hour Emergency Services a phone call on 01179 057 717.
