Using the best tools for the job has always been and always will be important regardless of the job that needs carrying out. In the past, it was commonplace for entire areas to be dug up just to fix one blocked or damaged pipe. Today however, there is a better way – CCTV surveys in Horsham. Through the use of modern, fibre optic drain inspection cameras, we can assess every nook and cranny of a blocked or damaged drainpipe. This ingenious technique enables us to save our customers time and money.
Fibre optic CCTV cameras are long and flexible and can be threaded through pipes to reach even those hard-to-reach areas. CCTV surveys in Horsham can be used to assess the cause and extent of a blockage – all images can be viewed on high definition monitors which provide absolute clarity.
These images are then interpreted by a skilled drainage specialist who can then suggest the appropriate course of action to the customer. If we know what has caused a blockage in the drainpipes our experts can make a decision quickly and easily.

If you have a crack in your sewer line pipe it can be costly and invasive to dig up the part of the road or back garden that the pipe is located beneath. If you do not wish to have the disruption of digging up the whole road to replace a length of pipe, why not opt for drain relining in Horsham?
Tree roots that grow underground can occasionally grow into pipes and drains causing those pipes to crack and leak. Using this innovative technique, we can take care of a damaged pipe with very little or in some cases no need to dig up the surrounding area. Trees are really a pain when it comes to drains and pipes. Fallen leaves clog the drains and the roots can break any pipes they come into contact with.
While unblocking drains might not seem like a job that requires a high-tech solution, such methods are necessary for saving the customer both time and money. Thanks to the latest developments in technology, we are able to provide drain relining in Horsham to correct any issues with virtually no inconvenience caused.

The most effective way of keeping outdoor drains clear of obstruction is to keep on top of proper garden maintenance. While such tasks are hardly fun for the property owner, they will help to prevent any issues occurring further down the line with drains becoming blocked.
When it is blustery or there is a lot of rain, a lot of garden debris can get washed down the outside drains. Leaves and other items can become trapped preventing the water from flowing properly. The most efficient way to minimise the risk of an accumulation of leaves is to regularly remove them from the yard. Gutters should also be swept out regularly and any swept up vegetation can be added to a compost pile for future use.
If you are a keen gardener you will already be aware of the benefits of a compost pile. These are a fantastic way of keeping the levels of loose debris and vegetation to a minimum. The other thing that creates blockages is rubbish. Plastic bags regularly get washed down the drain and snag on things causing blockages. Keeping the yard clean and well-kept will help minimise the risk of this happening.
Pitch fibre drains in Horsham were the economical alternative to conventional drainpipes that were incredibly popular throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Quite a few older properties sport pitch fibre drains as they were widely deemed to be a more affordable option. These drains were an incredibly popular alternative for those looking out for an affordable method of installing or mending drains, but only possessed a life expectancy of around 40 years.
Rather than being made using clay, pitch fibre drains in Horsham were made bitumen and wood pulp – materials that while affordable, aren’t particularly strong or long-lasting. Since the pitch fibre drains produced using wood pulp and bitumen, they lacked the integrity of their clay and plastic counterparts. This has led to a myriad of issues developing with nearly all of these pipes now on the verge of failing.
These pipes often break in several different ways. One of the ways they fail is they become deformed – a process known as ovaling. The excess weight of the dirt above them presses them into an oval shape. This shape is a great deal less effective at permitting water to travel through often resulting in obstructions forming.
If a pipe begins to leak because it has lost the waterproof coal tar lining that encases it, this can result in serious problems. Not only does the drainpipe need to be repaired or replaced, there is also the possibility that the leaking water could cause subsidence in any nearby properties. This makes pitch fibre drains in Horsham particularly hazardous if left unchecked.
A blocked pipe is certainly not an enjoyable thing to have. The first indicator is often a very nasty smell that will likely not go away.
The blockage causing the stench can easily come from the drains leaving your property. If ever you notice that the toilet water is not draining correctly or remains at very high levels in the bowl, this likely indicates a problem. Other problems include bathroom sinks that don’t drain correctly. All these are very likely to be sewer and drain related problems.
When a drain blocks there is the danger that the pressure build-up in the waste pipe might cause it to crack and break. If ever this happens, the result could catastrophic with filthy, foul smelling water gushing out onto the carpets.

A clogged drainpipe may be a result of several factors. It is not uncommon for us to find nappies and all other kinds of items blocking drains and drainpipes. Whether the drain is outdoors or indoors, you can rely on our team to provide the most effective and competitively priced solution.
One of the biggest root causes of blocked external drainpipes are trees. The debris can easily get washed into the drains and where they get caught on twigs that have also washed down into the drainpipe resulting in a serious blockage forming.
With internal drains, the causes can range from hair going down a shower plughole to food waste being scraped into a kitchen sink. Sanitary towels and nappies are major issues when it comes to toilets.
Whenever the water in a kitchen sink will not empty and it starts to smell, this is a surefire sign that it is clogged. The reason it generally clogs is because food items get washed into the plug hole and produce a clog.
