Damaged drainage pipelines can be a hassle to deal with. The traditional remedy would normally be considered the digging up the portion of weakened pipe and changing it with an all new piece. This is not always necessary because recent advances in technology mean that our team members are able to use a drain re-liner to create a brand new drain inside the existing one without having to dig anything. This means minimal disruption to yourself and the surrounding community.
Tree roots that grow below the ground can occasionally get inconveniently intertwined with the pipes and drains. This can then cause those pipes to split up and leak. Our staff members are certainly able to make use of our fibre optic CCTV to locate and identify these problems. We can then use our remotely operated cutting tools to get rid of the roots quickly and effectively.
The next step is ensuring that there is no debris left within the drain which may create an obstruction or cause additional damage. Finally, our team members can reline the pipes to prevent any more water from seeping out. If any disruption happens in the bordering area, we guarantee that it will be absolutely minimal and short.

Proactivity is by far the most efficient approach when it comes to reducing the chances of your outside drains in Salisbury getting blocked up. It is not always you putting things down these drains. Strong winds and other adverse weather conditions can cause the shrubs to detach. Leaves come down fairly easily and small branches and twigs are typically blown in along with the rest of the debris. The rain washes all these things into the outside drains in Salisbury and when it all gets together, it can cause easily cause a bad blockage situation.
The best approach to prevent a build-up of leaves and debris is to rid of them in the garden by brushing them up regularly. We would always recommend tidying up your gutters to prevent unforeseen build-ups caused by branches and vegetation.
When you sweep up the leaves and rubble, adding them to a compost pile is a great way to reclaim them to help with your garden in the future. Contact 24 hour Emergency Services today to find out more.
Salisbury pitched fibre drains were an affordable alternative that were popular all through the 1970s until they were banned in the late 1980s. Unfortunately, they only had a life expectancy of 40 years. In the 2010s, this means that countless of these affordable drainpipes are actually failing now and causing all kinds of issues for the households and companies that rely upon them.
The pitch fibre drains in Salisbury were mostly produced from wood cellulose and coal tar residue rather than the durable clay alternatives that would have lasted much longer. Pitched fibre drains were never made using long lasting clay materials. Plastics were simply not as advanced as they are now, so they were not used at the time.
Because the pitch fibre drains in Salisbury were generally produced of wood pulp and coal tar, they were significantly cheaper to make than the standard and much longer lasting terracotta pipes.
Once these pipes break down, they do this in two predictable ways. The first one is that the force of the earth above them presses them out of shape. They then end up being oval as opposed to round and this results in severe blockage issues.
The leaking water also attracts roots that penetrate the damaged walls of the drains and cause them to leak even more while blocking the pipes up. If the coal tar innards come away from the pipe, it will leave areas that are no longer waterproof. The water begins to leak into the surrounding earth afterwards. The water as it leaks out could easily attract the roots of trees and they can grow into the pipes causing significant damage.
One of the first signs that you are dealing with Salisbury waste drain blockage is that the water in your sink, bath or toilet will not drain away.
A waste drain blockage in your sewer line can leave your property can be a significant issue if it is not handled by experts like 24 Hour Emergecy Services quickly. Firstly, there is the smell, which is never pleasant. Secondly, your sinks may not drain, and dirty water will be left in the bathroom sink. This exacerbates the bad odour. The toilet will also not flush properly and will begin to back up and eventually spill over.
If a waste sewer blocks up, there is the realistic risk that the high pressure increase in the sewer and drain leads to a full break. If the waste drainpipe cracks, the filthy sewage water leaks out and might easily flood your house or yard.
To prevent the horrible situation of a blocked toilet turning into a flooded bathroom, call the drainage contractors that are on call 24 hours a day on 01722 395004 – we work all over Salisbury and are looking forward to helping you out.
There are many ways that drains in Salisbury become blocked up over time and more often than not, a clog is caused by a combination of several factors that have accumulated over time. Baby nappies, kids’ toys and sanitary towels all get flushed down the toilet on a regular basis even though they really should not. Doing this numerous times can trigger the pipes to end up being clogged up and causing further issues.
There are two main varieties of drainpipes we are called upon to fix:
It is trees that trigger the outside drains to become clogged up more than any other factors. The leaves and debris come together and obstruct anything from passing through. People using excessive amounts of toilet paper can also easily cause clogs. This holds especially true for sanitary towels if they are put into the toilet which is why we always warn people against doing this.
Kitchen sinks also often get obstructed. This is obviously not a pleasant situation for the homeowner because it will not drain properly and will smell horribly.
In case you have an obstructed drain either inside or outside your property, you should give the specialist drainpipe unblockers in Salisbury a call now on 01722 395004– we look forward to hearing from you.
