CCTV Surveys Epsom

24 Hour Emergency Serivces use the most up-to-date tools so we can provide quick and accurate assessments of drainage issues for both domestic and commercial customers. We don’t rely on guesswork and won’t dig up your outdoor space to get to the problem. Instead, we employ the latest techniques such as CCTV surveys in Epsom to provide you with quick and affordable solutions that work.

These fibre optic camera systems are flexible enough to enter any pipe and even reach around those tight bends. This makes diagnosing problems in even hard-to-reach places a doddle.

If the obstruction can be discovered using CCTV the operator will use the information onscreen to determine the appropriate response and advise the customer accordingly. This is really a great time saver and will also save the customer a small fortune.

If you have blocked drains and require CCTV surveys Epsom, call our team today on 01372 626104.

Outside Drains

Outdoor Drains in Epsom

Prevention is the most reliable strategy when it comes to avoiding outside drains becoming obstructed. The basic issue is that it is not always you putting stuff into these drainpipes. Wind and rain can cause leaves, branches and twigs to enter the drainpipe. Everything mixes together, becomes lodged and forms a blockage. The most reliable approach to protect against a build-up of debris is to frequently sweep your backyard.

Clearing your gutters is also an effective means of lowering the possibility of blocked drains in Epsom occurring. What’s more, anything you sweep up can be added to a garden compost stack. A compost stack is a great means of recycling any materials for later use. The other thing that causes obstructions to outside drains is litter. Supermarket bags frequently get washed into a drain and snag on things creating blockages. Keeping the yard well-maintained and uncluttered will help minimise the risk of this happening.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Epsom

Pitch fibre drains in Epsom were a cheap alternative to conventional drain pipes introduced in the 1960s and banned in the 1980s. Numerous older properties use these types of drains. With a life expectancy of 40 years, pitch fibre drains were undoubtedly the preferred choice for those searching for an economical approach to installing or mending drains.

Because the pitch fibre drains were made from wood pulp and coal tar they were more affordable to make compared but also lacked the strength and durability of clay or plastic drainpipes – the latter of which still being in its infancy back then.

Once these water pipes do break down they do this in several ways. First, the weight of the ground above forces them out of shape – a process known as ovaling. This change in shape makes it more difficult for water to pass through them. This has resulted in many pitch fibre drains in Epsom becoming blocked.

The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak more and block. If the coal tar inner comes away from the pipe it will leave areas that are no longer water tight and the water. The water leaks out compromising the integrity of the pipe further, if this happens contact 24 Hour Emergency Services today.

Waste Drain Blockage

Epsom Waste Drain Blockage

One of the first indications that you have blocked drains in Epsom is water that fails to drain at a normal rate or at all. This is usually accompanied by a foul smelling odour that is impossible to eradicate. Typically, if a waste drain blockage in Epsom is left unchecked, it can result in the water overflowing causing untold amounts of damage to your carpets and furniture.

One concern people have is the additional high pressure on the pipes caused by the blockage. If the pipe is damaged or weakened before the blockage, the additional pressure can cause it to crack.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Causes an Obstructed Drain?

A blocked drain can be a result of many things. It is not really surprising for our team to spot nappies and all kinds of other items obstructing pipes and drains. Our experts are trained to unclog outdoor drains and indoor drains including bathroom sinks, toilets and kitchen drainpipes.

Most of the time it is trees that cause blocked drains in Epsom in outdoor areas. Leaves and debris become compacted together preventing anything from passing.

With inside drainpipes the issues are more frequently brought on by items that are put down them. These include children’s toys but pretty much extend to any other foreign object that can be flushed.

When the water in your kitchen sink refuses to drain away and starts to smell, this normally indicates an obstruction. The reason for blocked drains in Epsom that occur in the kitchen is usually because of smaller pieces of food that get washed down the plug hole and produce a blockage.

If you’re dealing with blocked drain Epsom problems and need a solution fast, it’s time to give the experts at 24 Hour Emergency Services a call today on 01372 626104.
