Drain Relining

Drain Relining in Newbury

Damage to a ground water pipe can be a huge inconvenience to both domestic and commercial property owners. The typical fix would be to dig up the area and replace or clear the damaged pipe. While some scenarios may still call for this, in most cases, such steps are not necessary. Breakthroughs drain relining in Newbury mean our team are now able to insert liners to create a new drain inside the existing one.

Working with fibre optic CCTV cameras, our experts can identify problems quickly and efficiently. Without this technology it would be both time-consuming and challenging for us to complete this task. Once our experts have found the reason for the trouble, our people determine the best course of action moving forward.

The first thing to do is eliminate the cause of any blocked drains in Newbury. Our team make use of remote controlled cutting equipment to get rid of any roots that are likely causing the trouble. We then use drain jetting and rodding to remove any other obstructions, leaving the pipe nice and clean. The next step of drain relining in Newbury is to insert a drain liner which is impregnated with a special resin.

This liner is inflated and heated causing it to set and adhere to the inside of the existing drainpipe. Once set, the new pipe is tough enough to seal any cracks and prevent any further leakage from occurring.

Outside Drains

Newbury Outside Drains

Prevention is the most efficient approach when it comes to minimising the risk of blocked outdoor drains in Newbury. The primary issue is that it is not you putting things down these drains. Blockages are often caused by leaves, small branches and twigs from plants as well as litter that blows in off the street.

Any time smaller branches and leaves are cleared away, the odds of developing blocked outdoor drains in Newbury dramatically diminishes. Clearing gutters also helps to eliminate any potential issues leaving your garden clear and your drains flowing properly. Having a garden compost heap is a little something many gardeners recommend. Any time you sweep up leaves you can add them to the fertiliser heap for future use.

To minimise the risk of plastic bags going into the drainpipes and creating a blockage, the simplest thing to do is pick them up and place them straight into a bin.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains in Newbury

For many property owners, clay drainpipes were quite costly and at the time, plastic drainpipes were relatively unheard of. Enter pitch fibre drains in Newbury – a cost-effective alternative with a lifespan of 40 years. These were introduced in the 1960s and soared in popularity well into the 1980s when they were eventually banned. While these pipes were far more affordable to install and mend, they weren’t without their drawbacks.

As pitch fibre drains in Newbury weren’t made using clay or plastic, they lack the strength and durability necessary to protect them from the weight of the soil and buildings above. As many of these drains were installed around 40 years ago, they are coming to the end of their lifespan and are now experiencing issues.

Firstly, an effect known as ovaling is brought about by the pipes being placed under pressure from the weight above. The pipes become misshapen and it’s this oval-shape that prevents water from flowing correctly leading to blockages forming. Delamination is another issue that occurs and this is where the bitumen layer flakes off leaving the pipes no longer water tight.

In serious cases, property damage can result from subsidence brought about by a catastrophic failure in pitch fibre drains in Newbury. Water logged foundations can become weakened, or the earth beneath a building can become marshy causing serious concerns for any property owner. If you have pitch fibre drains installed under your property, it’s worth getting them checked out. Call 24 Hour Emergency Services today on 01635 788070 to find out more.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage in Newbury

Should you detect a persistent and horrible smell on your property perhaps this is a clear indication that one or more of your drains are blocked.

A waste drain blockage in Newbury is a terrible thing to have to deal with. The stench is just one of the many things that make this an unpleasant experience. Other factors include standing water and toilets that overflow spilling filthy, foul-smelling water onto carpets and mats. Another concern that many customers have is the pressure build-up inside the pipework. With nowhere for the water to go, this pressure can result in the pipe bursting, dumping waste water onto the floor.

To prevent this unpleasant situation from occurring, call our experienced waste drain blockage Newbury team today on 01635 788070.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Triggers a Blocked Drain?

Whether the pipe is outside or indoors, there are many ways for it to become blocked. Some causes are usually fairly specific, for instance, you wouldn’t expect an indoor drain to become blocked by leaves or small branches. Regardless of the nature of the blockage, however, blocked drains in Newbury can be an unpleasant experience to contend with.

When things get flushed into the toilet that shouldn’t be, an obstruction nearly always ensues. Items such as nappies, sanitary towels and even kid’s toys can cause havoc when placed down a toilet.

Leaves and twigs are a significant factor to consider when dealing with outdoor drains as is litter such as crisp wrappers and discarded fast food packaging. These get blown about by the wind before being washed into the drains where they clump together creating an impassable barrier.

Kitchen sinks and their drainpipes also become obstructed. This is not an enjoyable problem for the resident. The sink will not drain correctly, will likely begin to smell and will prevent any further use of the sink until the problem is rectified.
