CCTV Surveys

CCTV Surveys in Hastings

Unblocking drains may not sound like the type of job where you’d expect to discover the latest in advanced technology. However, that is precisely what we have access to with state-of-the-art CCTV drain inspection cameras. Our CCTV surveys in Hastings are second-to-none and are likely to save you time and money.

Using flexible fibre optic cameras, we can inspect the entire interior of any drainpipe spotting issues that otherwise be missed using conventional methods. These camera systems are long and thin, so they can even navigate tight bends without needing to dig up the immediate area to investigate.

Once the obstruction is located, our controllers will then use the images onscreen to determine the most suitable course of action to take to clear the obstruction. This is really is a great time saver as it removes much of the guesswork that would’ve been involved in years gone by.

24 Hour Emergency Services realise that a blocked drain can be an unpleasant experience to deal with. If you wish to book one of our CCTV surveys in Hastings, call our experts 24 hours a day on 01424 306056.

Drain Relining

Drain Relining in Hastings

Digging up your garden to replace a length of broken pipeline is never an ideal solution. If ever you get a seeping or blocked drainpipe it is advisable that you opt for a solution that causes the least amount of disruption possible. Our employees provide the most appropriate solution in the form of drain relining Hastings can rely on.

Drain relining is a quick and efficient process that involves inserting a liner into a drainpipe. This liner is then inflated, and heated and the special resin it is impregnated with sets forming a new pipe inside the existing one. Drain relining in Hastings is the quickest and most efficient way of sealing any cracks or realigning a drain that has become misaligned.

Roots that grow into the drainpipes and drains will nearly always present a nuisance as they usually cause blockages or structural damage to occur. We are equipped with fibre optic CCTV that helps us identify this problem as quickly as possible. Our staff then use specialist remotely operated cutting tools to eliminate the roots.

The next stage is to make sure there is no debris left inside the drain that might lead to an obstruction or result in further damage. This process can be achieved through drain jetting or rodding. Finally we can reline the pipes to prevent any water leaking out. All of this can be done with hardly any disturbance caused to the surrounding area.

24 Hour Emergency Services have been dealing with drainage problems of all types all over the local area for over 50 years. Have you noticed an unpleasant stench in your house or back garden? Do you suspect you could have an obstructed drainpipe or one that is in need of repair? If so, enlist our team today to provide you with drain relining in Hastings.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Hastings

Since it is not you putting stuff into your outdoor drains, the most effective way to avoid blocked outdoor drains in Hastings is through taking preventative action. Issues are frequently caused by leaves, yard clutter or carrier bags that get washed into the drainpipe when it has been raining or is windy. This is problem since most of us would prefer not to be outside in the rain cleaning the drains.

The best approach to prevent an accumulation of leaves and twigs is to regularly remove them from the yard. Brushing them up and cleaning out your gutters too to reduce the chances of hidden build-ups are effective at achieving this.

If you are a keen gardener you will already appreciate the benefits of a compost heap; these are a great means of keeping the levels of loose debris and vegetation to a minimum. It is also sensible to pick up rubbish in the backyard including plastic bags that have blown in. This will keep the yard looking good and reduce the chance of blocked outdoor drains in Hastings occurring.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains in Hastings

In the 1960s, a new type of drainpipe was introduced as a cost-effective alternative for property owners looking to save money. Pitch fibre drains were made using wood pulp and bitumen and saw frequent usage for more than 20 years before being banned in the 1980s. Many older properties feature pitch fibre drains in Hastings, and many are not experiencing issues with them.

Due to the way in which pitch fibre drains in Hastings were constructed, they lack the structural strength of clay or plastic built pipes. As a result, they are more susceptible to ovaling or collapsing as a result of the weight of the ground and buildings above. Ovaling is a process where the pipes warp and become deformed, changing to a more oval shape. This makes it harder for water to flow through them leading to blocked drains in Hastings.

If the coal tar layer comes away from the pipe, it will create areas that are no longer water tight and the water can begin to leak into the surrounding earth. This can cause property damage such as subsidence if it is not detected and treated in time. Talk to 24 Hour Emergency Services today to find out more.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Hastings

Among the very first indications that you have a blocked drain is the water in your sink, bathtub, shower or toilet as this won’t drain quickly if at all.

A block in your sewer line, or the drains leaving your property can be a serious problem. To start with, there is the stench which is not pleasant to deal with. Then there is the issue that your sinks won’t drain, and dirty water will remain creating a foul odour. If the blockage affects your toilet, it may even overflow damaging your carpets.

If ever a broken pipe becomes clogged up, there is a possibility it may burst and dirty foul smelling water may rush out. If this is in the road it is definitely not very nice for you and your neighbours. Should it happen in your home, it can mess up new carpets and end up being a hazard to your health. A waste drain blockage in Hastings can be a real nightmare to deal with necessitating immediate action.

When you notice the smell or a sink or toilet that isn’t draining correctly, it’s time to act. If all other methods have failed, call 24 Hour Emergency Services now on 01424 306056.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Results in a Blocked Drain?

Drains can become obstructed for a lot of reasons. Over the years, our team have seen every single thing from youngsters’ playthings flushed down the toilet to nappies and other hygiene products. These have all accumulated resulting in a blockage forming.

When our experts are hired to unclog drains our team typically cover two different varieties of drainpipes, which are as follows:

  • Outside Drainpipes
  • Indoors Drains

Most of the time, it is trees which trigger external drainpipes to become blocked up. Leaves and debris come together causing an obstruction which prevents water from flowing normally.

With inside drains, the causes are more frequently related to what we put down them. From kid’s toys to excessive amounts of toilet roll, bits of clothing and other household items which shouldn’t be flushed; the causes are numerous.

Kitchen sinks might also become clogged due to food waste, oil, fat and other food-related items being disposed of incorrectly. When this happens, blocked drains in Hastings will ensue.
