CCTV Surveys

Blocked Drains Gloucester

CCTV Surveys in Gloucester

Blocked drains in Gloucester are certainly not a pleasant thing to deal with. It used to be a case that reaching the root cause of a blocked drain was done through guessing but with the introduction of CCTV surveys, such methods are now a thing of the past.

Fibre optic CCTV camera systems that can go down into the drain are the latest advancement to occur in recent years. These long and very flexible digital cameras can identify obstructions or damage to the drains from inside, removing any need to excavate the immediate area.

Instead of attempting several different methods our team will instead carry out CCTV surveys in Gloucester which helps us to determine the right course of action as quickly as possible. Our experts can then advise the customer on the nature of the blockage and how we intend to rectify it.

If ever you have a blocked drain and would like our advice, call our experts on 01452 898708 to request one of our professional CCTV surveys in Gloucester.

Drain Relining

Drain Relining Gloucester

In the past, a cracked or blocked drainpipe would be both costly and time-consuming to put right. If you have a weakened drainpipe and wish to avoid the hassle of digging up the whole area, request drain relining in Gloucester today. Roots that grow below ground can at times grow into the pipes and drains, and when this happens, blockages and structural damage usually ensues.

One example of where drain relining in Gloucester is beneficial to the customer is in the time and money saved. Any repair work can be carried out quickly and efficiently while causing minimal disruption to you or your neighbours. The process is simple and involves inserting a liner into the pipework. This liner is impregnated with a special resin and is inflated and heated causing it to set and adhere to the inside of the pipe.

Once set, the liner forms a new pipe inside the existing one sealing off any cracks in the process. Of course, before his can happen the drain must be cleared of any blockages. Roots are removed using specialist cutting equipment and anything else can be dislodged through drain jetting and rodding.

If you have detected a smell emanating from your drains and suspect that this may be due to a blockage, call 24 Hour Emergency Services now on 01452 898708 to request drain relining Gloucester.

Outside Drains

Outdoor Drains Gloucester

Prevention is always the best cure, and this holds true even for your outdoor drains. You are not always in the back garden monitoring all the things that get washed into your drains. Wind and rain can cause parts of shrubs and trees to fall with leaves, branches and twigs being washed into exposed drainpipes.

Keeping the back garden clean and consistently scooping up leaves will reduce the chances of a build-up in the drainpipes. As these are some things that normally cause a blockage, it’s advisable that you remove the obstruction right away. Garden litter, including plastic bags, can cause blockages too. The easiest means to protect against this is to try to keep the back garden clear of such litter. Talk to 24 Hour Emergency Services today find out more.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains in Gloucester

Pitch fibre drains were simply a low cost alternative to drainpipes and were the preferred choice throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Many older properties utilise these drains. With a life expectancy of 40 years, pitch fibre drains in Gloucester were the preferred choice for those seeking a cheap method of mending or installing drains.

As the name implies, pitch fibre drains in Gloucester were generally manufactured from wood cellulose and coal tar instead of clay. This difference in manufacturing method meant that these drains were not as durable as their clay built counterparts. As these were produced of wood pulp and coal tar they were generally more affordable to manufacture compared to the traditional and longer lasting clay-based drains.

However, when the pressure of the ground piled on top of the drainpipes becomes too much, they begin to warp becoming more oval shaped as opposed to round. This means that the room inside the pipe is limited and this makes them a lot easier to block.

This can lead to water leaking from the pipes, the water can cause issues for buildings and in extreme cases cause subsidence. The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the pitch fibre drains in Gloucester and cause them to leak more and block. to find out more about our pitch fibre drain services contact 24 Hour Emergency Services today.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Gloucester

If ever you detect an awful odour in your property it’s worth checking your drains for a blockage. A blockage in your sewer line, or the drains leaving your house can be a serious issue. First off there is the odour to contend with. Your sinks won’t drain, leaving behind filthy water which can potentially overflow. The toilet will also not flush and may well start to back-up.

When a waste drain blockage in Gloucester occurs, there is the risk that the pressure in the drain can lead to it to break and crack. Should the waste pipe break the dirty sewage water will leak out and could possibly flood your property or backyard.

To prevent the unhealthy situation of a toilet developing in to the headache of a flooded bathroom, call 24 Hour Emergency Services today on 01452 898708.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

Blocked Drains Gloucester

What Triggers a Drainpipe Blockage?

There are several factors that can easily trigger a clogged drainpipe. It is not uncommon for us to discover nappies and all kinds of other things clogging pipes and drainpipes.

Debris is also a big problem primarily in autumn or if it has been blustery. Leaves, branches and twigs get blown off trees and accumulate in the guttering before being washed into the drainpipes in large clumps which might cause a blockage.

With indoor drains the problems are more often brought on by what is put down them. Children’s toys are even more frequent than you might think, as little ones find it exciting to see their playthings disappear in a whirlpool. When the water in a kitchen sink refuses to drain, this is also a hint that a blockage is present. The reason it typically blocks is because small-sized bits of food get washed into the plug hole resulting in a blockage.
