Drain Relining

Blocked Drain Southampton

Drain Relining Southampton

Damage to an underground pipe can certainly be a pain. When most people hear of a cracked pipe, they will be thinking of the traditional remedy. This would involve digging up the section of broken pipe and change it with a brand new unit. Southampton drain relining is a fantastic alternative to this that is far less intrusive and disruptive.

Trees can certainly be trouble when it comes to Southampton drains and pipes. The leaves block the drainpipes and the roots can tangle and damage the ground pipes. The first thing that you will most likely notice is the smell and possibly a permanently marshy area in the garden where the dirty water has surfaced.

This is a bad situation to have in your back garden. 24 hour Emergency Services understands that the idea of digging up a length of pipe is really not a fun one. Thankfully you are in luck because there is an easier, less messy and fat less intrusive solution available to you.

Southampton drain relining offers our experts the solution to insert an all new pipe within the old one without any fuss and hassle. What this will mean for your drainage system is that the water will start running inside the new watertight inner pipe which has bonded to the old damaged one and the leak will disappear altogether.

Our staff members have been dealing with Southampton drainage issues of all types all over the area. Have you recently detected a repulsive odour in your house or backyard? Do you think you may have an obstructed pipe or one that is in need of repair? Get in touch at your earliest convenience on 02380 371830 – we are here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Outside Drains

Blocked Drain Southampton

Outside Drains Southampton

Protecting against your Southampton outside drains clogging is achieved by getting rid of everything that may create a blockage ahead of time. The main bits that go down the outside drains and create obstructions are leaves, branches and sprigs.

These bits and pieces get washed down the drain and eventually cause blocked drains. The best way to prevent a build-up of fallen leaves is to frequently clear them away from the garden. When you brush all of them up and clear out your gutter system, you will be more protected against unseen build-ups.

If you’re interested in gardening, you’ll already be aware of the real benefits of a compost stack. These are a fantastic way of trying to keep the quantities of loose debris and vegetation to an absolute minimum.

It’s also very practical to grab and bin rubbish in the back garden including plastic bags that may have blown in. This’ll always keep the back garden looking good and will greatly reduce the chance of the drainpipes getting blocked in the first place.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Blocked Drain Southampton

Pitch Fibre Drains Southampton

Pitched fibre drains in Southampton were not made using durable clay at the time of manufacture. Because plastic-based materials were not as advanced as they are now, they were generally never used in constructing trains.

Southampton pitched fibre drains were manufactured from wood pulp and bitumen instead. These pitched fibre drains were definitely the most inexpensive option in drain pipes at the time. This is why they were extremely in demand over the course of the 1970s until they were phased out in the late 1980s.

Many of these residential properties as well as business premises make use of the sort of drain pipe known as pitch fibre drains Southampton. Having a relatively short lifespan of 40 years, these pitched fibre drains were a preferred choice for those home developers and homeowners that were trying to find an economical way of installing or mending drains cheaply.

Whenever drains that are not as rigid as the standard clay drainpipes succumb to the pressure of the earth above them, they are forced out of shape and could easily become clogged or cracked due to their new oval shape.

The seeping water leaks can also attract tree roots that will penetrate the damaged walls of the drains. This causes them to leak even more and block. In addition to this, if the innards come away from the pipe, it will leave areas that are no longer watertight which causes the water to leak into the surrounding earth.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Southampton

Waste drain blockage in your sewer pipe is a serious problem. First off, there is the smell which is far from pleasant. Additionally, you have the issue that your sinks will not drain and will leave dirty water in the sink. The toilet will likely also not flush away and will get backed up, potentially spilling over which can result in needing to replace your carpets.

When a fractured pipe is blocked, there is always the chance that it might break more and dirty smelling water could rush out. If not treated quickly and effectively, this could become a health hazard.

However, you have certainly come to the right place when it comes to dealing with waste drain blockage in Southampton. When you detect that the toilet is not flushing away correctly or you smell an odour that you cannot get rid of, we are here 24 hours a day. Just give us a ring on 02380 371830.

Drainpipes can block up for a lot of reasons and it’s often a combination of several factors that causes them to clog.
