Drain Relining

Drain Relining Bushey

Should you get a split in your drain pipe, it can be a very expensive and unpleasant process to dig up the street or garden that the pipe lays underneath and then change it with a different unit altogether.

Cracks to a below ground drainage pipe can be a pain. The traditional fix would be to dig up the section of damaged pipe and replace it with a different length. If you have a broken sewer line pipe or drainage pipe and don’t wish to have the disruption of digging up the road to replace a length of drainpipe, why not opt for drain relining in Bushey instead?

Roots from trees that grow below ground can at times grow into the pipes and drains, which can then cause those pipes to split and drip. Our experts are equipped to make use of our fibre optic CCTV to identify this problem and locate where exactly the damage has been done.

Our staff is ready to use our specialist remotely controlled cutting tools to get rid of the roots. The next phase is really to make certain there is definitely no debris left inside the drain that might result in an obstruction or could cause further damage.

Our experts at 24 Hour Emergency Services can reline the pipes to protect against any further water leaking out. All of this can be done with hardly any disruption to the surrounding area.

Our team has been dealing with drainage problems of all types all around the Bushey area. Have you noticed a repulsive smell in your house or back garden? Do you believe you could have an obstructed drain pipe or one that is in need of repair? If so, call our team on 02082 137 265.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Bushey

The primary thing to avoid clogged drains is not to put anything obtrusive down your drainpipes. The problems are commonly created by fallen leaves, yard clutter or carrier bags that get washed into the drain and sewer when it has been wet. This is another problem as most of us really don’t wish to be outdoors in the rain cleaning the drainpipes.

To protect against these things blocking up your drains, you need to consistently tidy anything that may get washed into the drainpipes. Scooping the loose leaves up and clearing away other things that might get caught up by the rain will stop them from going into the drainpipes.

If you are a keen gardener, you are going to already know the real benefits of a garden compost pile, but these are also a fantastic means of trying to keep the quantities of loose fallen leaves and vegetation to a minimum. Backyard litter, including plastic bags, can cause obstructions in the outside drainpipes. The easiest means to prevent this is to keep the backyard clear of such litter at all times.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Bushey

The pitch fibre drains as the name suggests were generally manufactured from timber cellulose and coal tar residue as opposed to longer lasting clay. This helped make these a low cost substitute but also lowered their lifespan.

Absolutely no new pitch fibre pipes have actually been installed for around twenty years. Nevertheless, those that were put down are actually right now beginning to stop working.

Pitched fibre drains were generally the inexpensive other option of drains which were preferred all throughout the 1970s. Countless older properties along with business buildings use a variety of drain pipe described as pitch fibre drains. Our Experts at 24 Hour Emergency Services are more than capable with dealing with problems that occur in pitch fibre drains,

With a lifetime of 40 years, pitched fibre drains were really a preferred alternative for those home developers and property owners who were searching for an economical approach of mending or installing drains, however, there are several problems associated with them.

Once the pressure of the soil piled on top of the drain water pipes is too much for them to handle, they begin to warp and become more oval shaped rather than round. Any time the drains are not as rigid as the typical clay, water pipes succumb to the high pressure of the ground above them. They are then forced out of shape and could quite easily come to be obstructed.

Whenever drains become distorted as happens with pitch fibre drains over time, the water cannot flow correctly and the drainpipes become blocked up.

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.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Bushey

In the event that you have a blockage in your waste sewer, it may be very apparent that there is a problem because the smell can be fairly overwhelming. A blocked drain can leave your property may be a significant issue. To start with, there is the stench that is far from enjoyable.

Then there is the problem that your sinks can not drain – this leaves dirty water in the kitchen sink and contributes to the smell. The toilet may also not flush away and can begin to get backed up and spill over.

When a waste drainpipe blocks, there is generally the danger that the pressure increased in the drain and sewer might just cause it to crack and break. If ever the waste sewer and drain crack, then the filthy sewer water may leak out and might flood your home or backyard.

To prevent the bad scenario of a blocked waste drain or toilet developing into the headache of a flooded bathroom, get in touch with the expert technicians who are available 24 hours a day on 02082 137 265.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Triggers A Clogged Drain?

There really are so many things our experts have seen that have resulted in an blocked drain. It is certainly not surprising for us to find nappies and all types of other things blocking the pipes and drainpipes.

There are two main sorts of drainpipes:

  • External Drainpipes
  • Inside Drains (in the bathroom, toilet or kitchen)

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we know one of the biggest sources of clogged outside drainpipes are trees because the leaves and debris can get washed into the drains and they get caught upon twigs that have also washed down into the drainpipe which produces a clog.

Many things may cause an interior drainpipe to get blocked. Some things like sanitary towels or perhaps toilet paper are items you might anticipate. There are also things which you possibly would not anticipate, like toys which kids have put into the toilet.

Kitchen sinks and their drainpipes also get obstructed. This is not an enjoyable problem for the property owner because the sink will not empty efficiently and they smell terrible.

Give the specialists in drain unclogging a telephone call if you have any problems with your inside or external drainpipes. We are on call in the Bushey area 24 hours a day on 02082 137 265.
