Drain Relining

Drain Relining Swindon

If you have discovered that your pipes are leaking, you definitely need to do something to prevent the horrible smelly water leaking out and causing damage to your property. Digging up the street where the pipe is located was the only option you had available until not long ago. Thankfully, there are now new developments in technology that mean our people are able to reline your drains without the need to dig up the road.

By making the most of fibre optic CCTV, we have identified that the majority of below ground pipes have been damaged by tree roots. Without having this system at your disposal, it would have been very challenging for our team to find the cause.

Once we discover the cause and location of the issue, we can work with more our high-end tools to deal with it. The first thing to do is eliminate the problem through the use of a remote controlled trimming device which eliminates the root systems that are causing the problem.

24 Hour Emergency Services can then fix the pipeline using a high-quality drain reliner, which is a tough tube that sits within your existing pipe and fixes onto it. This is normally tough enough to stop the leaks and extend your system’s service life.

Our staff members have been dealing with drainage problems of all types all over the Swindon area for many years, so we will know exactly what to consider and look out for at your property during our inspection. Have you detected an unpleasant smell in your house or back garden? Do you presume that you could have a clogged drain pipe or one that is in need of repair? Get in touch today on 01793 467551.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Swindon

Because you are not always there to track what exactly goes into your outside drains in Swindon, you ought to prevent them getting obstructed by some prep work. Strong winds can create parts of the trees to detach. Leaves come apart rather effortlessly and little branches and twigs are often blown down, too.

Then the rain washes everything down the outside drain and anytime it all mixes together, it can be a bad obstruction. Any time that the little branches and the leaves that have been blown off the trees are cleared up, it helps greatly minimise the risk of the build-up of garden debris that can possibly become the source of blockages that no one wants to deal with.

If you are a keen gardener, you will already appreciate the numerous advantages of a compost heap. These are also a great way of keeping the levels of loose leaves and vegetation to an absolute minimum. To effectively protect against plastic bags going into the drainpipes and causing a clog, the best thing to do is pick all of them up when they blow into the garden.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Swindon

Pitched fibre drains were in Swindon were the commonly used cheap alternative that were incredibly popular over the course of the 1970s. Several older residential properties as well as company buildings use pitch fibre drains. With a lifespan of 40 years, these pitched fibre drains were a preferred choice for those contractors and property owners that were seeking a low cost method of mending or installing drains.

The pitch fibre drains in Swindon were produced from wood cellulose and coal tar residue rather than the much longer lasting clay based option. At the time of installation, this made them an affordable substitute but significantly reduced their practical service life. No new pitch fibre pipes have been laid for around 20 years now, however those that were installed are now beginning to stop working.

Once these kinds of drainpipes do fail, they do so in a couple of ways. The first is the high pressure of the earth above them pressing them out of shape. They become oval rather than round and it might lead to severe clogging.

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 bits come away from the pipe, it will leave areas exposed that will no longer be waterproof. The water can then begin to leak into the surrounding earth. The water as it leaks out easily attracts the roots of trees and they can grow into the pipes causing damage to the blockages and pipes.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Swindon

Swindon waste drain blockages are definitely not an enjoyable thing to have to deal with. The very first indicator of this is typically a very bad odour that will not go away.

A block in your sewer line or the drains leaving your house can certainly be a significant problem. Initially there is the odour, which is obviously not enjoyable. Then there is the complication that your sinks may not drain. This leaves filthy water in the bathroom sink and contributes to the smell. In some cases, the toilet will also not flush away and may begin to back up and eventually overflow.

Whenever you have flushed a toilet while there is a blocked pipe underneath, you know that sense of fear as the water levels rise in the bowl and it looks like it is going to flood over onto the bathroom floor, ruining the mat or carpet.

To prevent the horrible situation of a toilet turning into a flooded bathroom, get in touch with the expert technicians that are available 24 hours a day on 01793 467551.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Results In A Clogged Drainpipe?

There are many things which can produce an obstructed drainpipe in Swindon. More often than not, it’s a combination of things rather than a single source.

Blocked drainpipes can easily be a result of lots of things getting flushed down toilets that really shouldn’t be. For example, despite warnings to the contrary, people often flush sanitary towels, nappies while also using excessive amount of toilet paper.

Whenever we are booked to unclog drains, our team generally deals with two types of drains:

  • Outdoor Drainpipes
  • Inside Drains (bathroom, toilet or kitchen)

Trees may also be a problem for outside drainpipes because the fallen leaves and small branches block the drains up.

When it comes to domestic kitchen blockages, food and oil will also accumulate as time goes on to result in an obstruction in the drainpipe. That is really irritating for the house owner as the sink frequently backs up with greasy and foul-smelling water that will not flow away.

If you are in the Swindon area and have trouble with your drains, our experts can help. We have a specialist team standing by to deal with your drainage matters, so call us any time on 01793 467551.
