CCTV Surveys East Grinstead

Using the most up-to-date tools for the job, our CCTV surveys in East Grinstead will ensure that any issues are spotted and rectified quickly. This is great news for our customers as previously, issues could only be accurately diagnosed by digging up general area.

Fibre optic CCTV cameras are long and flexible and are able to travel along the pipes and through the drains. They send back photos of what is inside the pipes so that the operator can view the extent of the problem and relay this back to the customer.

Instead of trying lots of other things and finding out what works our experts can use CCTV surveys in East Grinstead to diagnose issues quickly and efficiently. 24 Hour Emergency Services are then in a position to suggest the most appropriate solution to clear away the blockage.

Our team realise that a blocked drainpipe is not really a pleasant experience. We are available for call outs 24 hours a day, so be sure to call us on 01342 347068 to request our assistance.

Drain Relining

Drain Relining in East Grinstead

If you have a crack in your drainpipe it can be an expensive and unpleasant process digging up the area to track down the problem. A competitively priced alternative to this is to enlist our team to carry out drain relining in East Grinstead. Tree roots can in certain cases grow into the pipes and drains causing blockages and structural damage to occur.

By utilising 24 Hour Emergency Services, we can correct the entire issue and extend the life expectancy of your drains without any need to dig up the area. Trees often present an issue to drains and pipes. Fallen leaves block the drains and the roots can weaken the underground pipes.

Our CCTV surveys enable us diagnose blocked drains in East Grinstead and diagnose issues that may have not previous existed. Without this technology it would be extremely tricky for our team to identify these issues without using more invasive techniques. Once we have identified the source of the trouble our experts are able to make a determination on the best way to handle it.

The first thing to do is to eliminate the problem. Our people make the most of remote controlled cutting equipment which is designed to get rid of the root systems that are causing the problem. Our team can then mend the pipeline using a drain re-liner – this is a tough tube which sits inside your old pipe and fixes to it. This is normally solid enough to prevent further leakages from occurring.

If you have noticed a smell around the house and feel you might blocked drains in East Grinstead, call us on 01342 347068 24 hours a day.

Outside Drains

East Grinstead Outdoor Drains

Minimising the risk of the outside drainpipes blocking involves getting rid of everything that can cause a clog in advance. The main things that go into outdoor drains and create blockages are leaves, smaller branches and twigs from shrubs. They are washed down the drain where they create an obstruction. When smaller branches and the leaves are cleared this helps minimise the risk of blocked drains in East Grinstead from occurring.

When you sweep the leaves, add them to a garden compost pile as this is a great way to reuse them to help with your garden in the future. As for litter that has blown in off the street, ensure that this is collected swiftly to prevent a problem from occurring.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains in East Grinstead

Up until the late 1980s, pitch fibre drains were a common feature found under many domestic and commercial properties. They were made using wood pulp and bitumen as opposed to clay or plastic, and were a more affordable alternative for property owners looking to save money. Unfortunately, pitch fibre drains in East Grinstead only have a life expectancy of 40 years – and that time is more or less spent!

As these drains weren’t made using clay or plastic, they typically lacked the strength or durability of their counterparts. This has led to issues developing such as ovaling, which is where the pipe warps and becomes misshapen under the weight of the ground and buildings above. Another issue occurs where the bitumen flakes off meaning that the pipes are no longer watertight.

The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak more and block.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage East Grinstead

Should you have an obstruction in your waste drainpipe, it will quickly become apparent that there is a problem because the smell will be fairly intense.

A waste drain blockage in East Grinstead may be located near the sink end or further along the pipe. In some cases, you may be able to fix the problem yourself. If your blocked drains persist, however, it’s time to call in 24 Hour Emergency Services for a professional solution.

Water from a damaged sewer pipe flooding into your back garden or property is most people’s idea of a nightmare. If ever a weakened or broken pipe is put under added pressure by an obstruction the water needs to go somewhere and in certain cases it streams out.

If you detect a strange odour that won’t go away, overflowing sinks or standing water, call us 24 hours a day and enlist our team to put things right again. To arrange a callout, call us on 01342 347068.
