Drain Relining

Drain Relining in Petersfield

If you have a fracture or a crack in your sewer line pipe, then it can get really expensive and invasive to dig up the section of neighbourhood or garden that the pipe lays underneath and then change it with a brand new unit.

If you have a broken sewer line pipe or drain and do not wish to have the disruption of digging up the whole neighbourhood to replace a single piece, then why not go for drain relining in Petersfield instead for a more convenient option?

Tree roots that grow underground can occasionally grow into the pipes and drains, which can then cause the pipes to split and leak. As an example of the use of new strategies, modern drain relining permits us to fix a seeping pipe with very little necessity to dig up the street that the pipe is located under. Trees are a pain when it comes to drains and pipes because the leaves and twigs clog the drains and the roots can damage the underground pipes.

Roots from trees that grow below ground can in some cases grow into the structure of the pipes, which can then cause those pipes to break and leak. We are able to use our fibre optic CCTV to identify this problem and locate the root cause.

24 Hour Emergency Services will then be ready to use our specialist remotely controlled cutting tools to remove the tree roots with no problems. The next step is to ensure there are no bits left inside the drain that could lead to an obstruction or create more damage. Finally, our people can reline the pipes to minimise the risk of any more water seeping out. All of this will be done with minimal disruption to the surrounding area.

Our experts have been dealing with drainage issues of all types all around the Petersfield area. Have you noticed a horrible smell in your house or garden recently? Do you imagine you could have a clogged drain pipe or one that is certainly in need of repair? Then don’t hesitate to reach out to the top local experts on 01730 406287.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Petersfield

At 24 Hour Emergency Service, we believe protecting against your Petersfield outside drains clogging is highly recommended as a proactive solution. The place to start is to begin removing every single thing that might create an obstruction in advance. That involves a bit of prior preparing. Whenever there is a lot of rainfall, a great deal of back garden debris can get washed down the outside drains.

Leaves and many other items can become caught and hold against the water from passing through effectively, leaving it inconveniently standing. Our most important suggestion on effective ways to reduce the chances of an outside drain clog is to clear away the loose yard clutter, leaves, twigs and litter well before it gets a chance to get washed inside the drainpipes.

Having a fertiliser stack is one thing many gardeners advise – when you scoop your leaves up, you can simply add them to the garden compost pile. Backyard litter including plastic bags can create obstructions to the outside drains. The easiest means to protect against blocked drains is to keep the backyard clear of such litter at all times.

Pitched Fibre Drains

Pitched Fibre Drains Petersfield

With a lifetime of 40 years, Petersfield pitched fibre drains were a popular choice for property builders or home owners that were trying to find an inexpensive method of mending or installing drains. They were very commonly installed from the 1960s through to the late 1980s when they were finally phased out.

It has been more than 20 years since the final batch of those pitched fibre drains Petersfield was used and countless units have already begun to fail and buckle under the load of the ground above them.

The pitch fibre drains in Petersfield, as the name implies, were produced out of wood cellulose and coal tar instead of the more durable clay alternative. Pitched fibre drains were not made using very long lasting terra cotta based plastics and the materials were not as advanced as they are now. Since the Petersfield pitch fibre drains were really built of wood pulp and coal tar, they were generally much more affordable to make compared to the regular and longer lasting clay-based pipes.

Whenever the heaviness of the earth piles on top of the drains and the pressure is too much for them to handle, they begin to deform and become more oval shaped rather than round. When the drains that are not as rigid as the conventional clay pipes succumb to the force of the ground above, they are pressed out of shape and may easily end up being clogged up. Whenever drain pipes become distorted as happens with Petersfield pitch fibre drains over time, then the water cannot flow efficiently and the drainpipes become blocked.

When a pipe loses the waterproof coal tar lining, it is a weak spot that water can leak out from. The water as it leaks out could easily attract the roots of trees and they can grow into the pipes causing damage to the pipes and blockages.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Petersfield

If ever you have a clog in your pipe or are experiencing a different kind of waste drain blockage in Petersfield, it will be very apparent due to the fact that the smell can become quite overwhelming.

Clogs to the drain system can be located near the plug hole in which case you might have the opportunity to solve the problem yourself with a plunger or even a drainpipe un-blocker from the supermarket. Should the situation continue with the water still standing and/or the horrible odour persisting, then your issue might be a clog further inside the pipes.

In the event that you have ever flushed a toilet whilst there is a clogged pipe, you may recognise that feeling of fright as the water levels rise in the bowl and it looks like it is going to flood over on to the toilet rug.

24 Hour Emergency Services understand what a nightmare this can be for anyone, so we are available to unblock your drains 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call our experienced engineers on 01730 406287.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

There are numerous reasons that cause a blocked drain Petersfield homeowners need to be aware of in order to avoid future problems. Whenever items get flushed down the toilet that shouldn’t be (diapers, sanitary pads, etc) they commonly accumulate in the drains and create a blockage.

At 24 Hour Emergency Services, we are asked to unclog two main types of drainpipes – outdoor drains and interior drains (which includes kitchen, toilet and bathroom pipes).

Outdoor drains have their own issues – trees can often cause problems with them. Leaves are an evident source of obstructed drainpipes together with small branches which can easily get washed down the drainpipe and group together and obstruct the drainpipes.

Babies’ nappies that are put down the toilet collect together and block the drains and hinder anything from successfully passing beyond them which is far more common that one might think.

When a kitchen sink gets obstructed, it is more often than not thanks to the small amounts of food and grease which gets washed down the sink. This is annoying due to the fact that the water can easily then not go down the sink that quickly begins to stink.

If you need help with eliminating these clogs from your drains either indoors or external, give the local specialists a phone call on 01730 406287. Our team has specialist drainpipe engineers who are waiting to help you out. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we cover all areas in Petersfield
