Drain Relining

Drain Relining in Newport

Should you have a crack in your sewer line, it can be a costly and unpleasant process to dig up the area of road or backyard that the pipeline lays underneath and then change it with a new length of pipe. A far less intrusive option as opposed to digging up the pipe in several cases is the use of our Newport drain relining process.

Roots that grow below ground can sometimes get into the pipes and drains, which can cause the pipes to fracture and leak. Drain relining in Newport enables us to fix a leaking pipe with hardly any need to dig up the path that the pipe is beneath. Get in touch with our team to take advantage of this non-intrusive solution.

Trees are definitely a pain when it comes to pipes and drains as the leaves and twigs clog the drains and the roots can severely damage the underground pipes.

Do you expect you could have an obstructed drain pipe or one that is really in need of repair? Reach out to the experts on 01633 462 021.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Newport

Outside drains are a little trickier to manage because what goes down the drainpipe is out of your control as it is not normally not your household that is putting anything into an outside drain.

The primary things that go down the outdoors drainpipes and cause blocked drains are leaves, small branches and twigs from nearby trees. They become washed down the drain and create a bad clog. The absolute best approach to reduce the chances of an accumulation of debris is to routinely clear them away from the garden by simply brushing them up and also cleaning out your rain gutter. This helps prevent unseen build-ups alongside the other clutter like smaller branches and foliage that can build up.

Whenever you sweep up the leaves, adding them to a compost stack is a fantastic way to reclaim them to help with your back garden in the future. To prevent plastic bags from going into the drains and causing an obstruction, the best thing to do is just pick all of them up as soon as they blow into the garden.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Newport

Newport pitched fibre drains were a common and inexpensive option d which were installed from the 1960s and throughout the 1970s until they were finally phased out in the late 1980s.

Countless older houses as well as business properties still utilise a type of drain pipe described as pitch fibre drains in Newport. With a service life expectancy of 40 years, these pitched fibre drains were a preferred alternative for those residential property developers and home owners that were seeking an economical way of installing or mending drains.

Since the pitch fibre drains were built from wood pulp and coal tar, they were more affordable to create compared to the more traditional and much longer lasting clay based drains.

Unfortunately, it has now been discovered that these drainpipes have the tendency to break in two separate and distinct ways. Among the ways they fail is that they get deformed. The excess weight and heaviness of the earth on them forces them in to an oval shape. This particular shape is much less efficient at enabling water to travel through and this often obstructs and creates blockages.

The leaking water can also attract tree roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak even more and eventually block up. If the coal tar inner comes away from the pipe, it will leave areas that are no longer watertight and the water can begin to leak into the surrounding earth. The water as it leaks out could attract the roots of trees and they can grow into the pipes causing further damage to the pipes.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Newport

If you detect a serious and undesirable stench on your property, then there is a good chance that you are dealing with a waste drain blockage in Newport. If that’s the case, then do not hesitate to reach out to our team members.

Clogs to the drainage system may be located near the plug hole. When this is the case, you may well manage to fix the issue yourself with a plunger or even a sewer un-blocker from the shop. In the event that the issue continues and the water in your kitchen sink won’t recede properly (or the awful smell continues) then your issue might possibly be a thicker blockage located farther in the pipes.

Having water from a damaged sewage pipe flooding into your back garden or property is most people’s idea of a domestic nightmare. If ever a weakened or fractured pipe is put under additional pressure by a block, the water will need to go elsewhere and occasionally it surges out causing an endless amount of additional issues.

It is highly suggested that at the first symptom of Newport waste drain blockage, you call an emergency drainage expert as soon as possible. We cover all of Newport and are on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whatever the weather. In order to make certain that your clog problems are dealt with as soon as possible, call 24 Hour Emergency Services on today 01633 462 021.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Causes An Obstructed Drain?

Drainpipes can easily become blocked up due to a variety of different factors. More often than not, it’s a combination of things that causes a problem.

Whenever items get flushed down the toilet that really ought not to be (nappies, sanitary towels, excessive amounts of toilet paper) they frequently build up in the drains and might end up blocking them up.

There are two main sorts of drains that we are hired to fix:

  • External Drains
  • Interior Drainpipes (like the bathroom, toilet or kitchen)

One of the biggest sources of clogged outdoor drains are trees because the fallen leaves and broken twigs get washed into the drains and they get caught on twigs that have also ended up inside. This triggers an inconvenient obstruction.

People using too much toilet paper and flushing it down the toilet might result in clogs. The same holds true for items that are often flushed down the toilet that should never be, such as sanitary towels and babies’ nappies.

Kitchen sinks and their drainpipes also get obstructed often. This is obviously not a pleasurable situation for the homeowner, because the sink will not empty out properly and will smell bad.
