CCTV Surveys in Liphook

Unclogging drains might not sound like the sort of industry that demands the very latest in technology, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Thanks to the latest CCTV surveys in Liphook, your problem can be taken care of quickly and efficiently by our professional team of specialists.

This camera works like a dream, snaking its way through even the most awkwardly shaped pipes to reach the source of a blockage. Once the blockage has been located, images are fed back to a monitor where the 24 Hour Emergency Services team can analyse what’s on screen and suggest the appropriate response.

To request one of our CCTV surveys in Liphook, call us today on 01428 768142.

Drain Relining

Drain Relining Liphook

Should you find a split in your drain pipe it can be a really costly and invasive procedure to dig up the street or garden to locate the damaged pipe. Cracks in drainage pipes can become serious if left unchecked so it’s important to act quickly. The more traditional solution would be to dig up the section of weakened pipe and swap it out for a new piece. This is no longer the case thanks to the introduction of drain relining Liphook can depend on.

Trees are a major source of disruption for property owners as their roots penetrate deep causing blockages and structural damage to nearby pipes. Leaves and twigs block drainpipes causing a build-up of pressure as well as slow draining water. Obvious signs of an issue include a foul odour and a permanent muddy area that doesn’t subside, even during dry weather.

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we know this is definitely not a pleasant thing to have in your back garden, but the prospect of digging up a piece of pipe is also not a pleasant thought. The easy solution is to enlist our professionals to provide drain relining in Liphook that promises results. Drain relining involves inserting a liner that reinforces the existing pipe from within.

Have you detected a foul smell in your house or garden? Do you suspect you might have a clogged drain pipe or one that is in need of repair? If so, call us on 01428 768142.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Liphook

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we know avoidance is the most effective course of action to take to prevent your outdoor drains becoming blocked. The main issue is that it is not actually you putting stuff into these drainpipes. The basic things that go down the outside drains and cause obstructions are leaves, smaller branches and twigs from plants. They get washed into the drain where they accumulate causing a blockage to form.

When small branches and leaves that have been blown from the trees are scooped up, this helps minimise the risk of the build-up of backyard clutter. Any time you sweep up the leaves, adding them to a compost stack is a great way to recycle them and this can help with your garden in the future.

The other thing that causes clogs to appear are carrier bags. These typically get washed into a drain and snag on things causing obstructions. Trying to keep the backyard clean and tidy will help protect against this happening.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Liphook

Pitch fibre drains in Liphook were, without a doubt, the most affordable alternative to conventional drainpipes and were widely used throughout the 60s and up until the late 1980s. Unfortunately, they only had a life span of around 40 years. This has led to countless issues developing causing pitch fibre drains in Liphook to fail.

All pitch fibre drains in Liphook were comprised of materials such as wood pulp and bitumen. This helped to make these an affordable substitute but lowered their useful life expectancy. No brand new pitch fibre pipes have been laid for roughly 30 years, however those that were put down are now starting to fail.

Any time the pressure of the soil piled on top of the drainpipes is too much for them to handle they start to deform becoming more oval shaped rather than round. These drains are not as rigid as standard clay drainpipes, so they succumb to excess weight and in extreme cases may even burst. Whenever pitch fibre drains in Liphook become misshapen the water won’t be able to flow effectively causing the drainpipes to become obstructed.

This can lead to water leaking from the pipes. The water can cause issues for buildings in extreme cases by triggering subsidence to occur. 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 Liphook

A waste drain blockage in Liphook is typically indicated by the presence of a rather distinctive and unpleasant odour.

In many cases, this can easily originate from the drainpipes leaving the house. In addition to this foul odour, you’ll also notice the presence of standing water or drains that empty at rate that is slower than usual. In any case, this is a likely indication of drainpipe related problems.

Whenever a damaged pipe ends up being clogged up, there is a chance that it can burst dumping filthy, foul smelling water onto your carpets. If this occurs outdoors, it won’t be very pleasant for you and your next door neighbours. If it is inside your property it can spoil carpets and rugs and seriously impact the overall living conditions.

At the very first sign of a waste drain blockage in Liphook, it is advisable that you phone an emergency drainage expert. We cover all of the Liphook area and are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make sure your obstruction problems are dealt with as soon as possible. Telephone us on 01428 768142 today.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Leads to an Obstructed Drain?

There is more than one way in which drainpipes become blocked up. Nappies, children’s dolls and sanitary towels all get flushed down the toilet, even though they shouldn’t be. This can easily result in the drainpipes becoming clogged up. There are two main kinds of drainpipes that we deal with, and these are located outdoors and indoors.

Leaves and twigs are also a significant issue primarily in autumn or if it has been windy. They get blown from the trees and accumulate in the guttering before being washed inside the drains in large clumps that may cause an obstruction.

Several things may lead to an internal drain becoming obstructed such as sanitary towels and even toilet paper if too much is placed down the toilet in one go. There are also things that you perhaps would not anticipate too, like kid’s toys.

When a kitchen sink becomes obstructed it is commonly a result of bits of food and vegetable oil which are washed down the sink. This is irritating due to the fact the water cannot drain effectively and remains sitting in the bowl.

If you have blocked drains in Liphook, either inside or outside the house, you should give our experienced drainage specialists a call on 01428 768142.
