Drain Relining

Drain Relining Waltham Abbey

Drain relining in Waltham Abbey is an excellent method of giving your drainage system a second life. In case you have a crack in your sewer line, it can be very costly and disruptive to dig up the entire area of road or backyard that the pipeline lays under. Then you have the additional hassle of changing it with a new unit. A much less intrusive option in several cases is the use of our drain relining process.

Tree roots that grow underground can get into the pipes and drains. This then causes the pipes to fracture and leak. Drain relining Waltham Abbey units enables us to fix a leaking pipe with no need to dig up the path that the pipe is beneath. Reach out to our team to take advantage of this non-intrusive solution today.

Nearby trees and bushes are definitely a pain when it comes to pipes and drainage systems. This is because the leaves and twigs clog them and the roots can severely damage the underground pipes.

Do you expect that you could have an obstructed pipe or one that is in need of repair? Reach out to the experts on 01992 829549 – we are here to help 24 hours a day.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Waltham Abbey

Waltham Abbey outside drains are a bit trickier to manage. That’s because what actually goes down the drainpipes is out of your control. It is normally not your household that is putting anything into an outside drain, so don’t feel bad!

The main things that go down people’s outside drains in Waltham Abbey and end up causing blockages are tree leaves, small branches and twigs. They get washed down the drain and create a bad blockage after some time. The single best approach to reduce the chances of an accumulation of this type of debris is to routinely clear it all away from the garden. This can be done by simply brushing it all up and also cleaning out your rain gutter. This will help to prevent unseen build-ups and save you money on future services.

When you sweep up the leaves, adding them to a compost stack is one of the best ways to reclaim them. This helps with your back garden maintenance in the future. We also advise remembering to prevent any plastic bags from going into the drains and causing an obstruction. The best thing to do is to pick all of them up as soon as they blow into the garden from outside. Contact our knowledgeable team to find out more

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Waltham Abbey

Pitched fibre drains in Waltham Abbey were a very common and relatively inexpensive option. They were commonly installed from the 1960s and throughout the 1970s until they were finally phased out in the late 1980s. No pitch fibre drains have been installed for well over 20 years now, however they are in place in numerous properties all over the United Kingdom.

With a service life of about 40 years, these Waltham Abbey pitched fibre drains were a preferred alternative for residential developers and homeowners who were looking for an economical way of installing or mending broken drains. Due to pitch fibre drains were created from wood pulp and coal tar, they were much more affordable to supply, when compared to the longer lasting clay based drains.

It has now become apparent that these drainpipes break in two separate distinct ways. The first way is that they get deformed. Due to excess weight and the heaviness of the ground above them forces them into an oval shape. This deformed oval shape is much less efficient at letting through. This often obstructs and creates bad blockages.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Can Cause Obstructed Drains in Waltham Abbey?

Drains in Waltham Abbey can easily become blocked up and this is usually due to a variety of different factors coming together over time.

When some items get flushed down the toilet that really should not to be – for example, nappies, sanitary towels, too much toilet paper – they frequently build up in the pipes and end up blocking them.

Our Waltham Abbey team is highly experienced with all drainage solutions. There are two main types of drains that we are hired to look at:

  • External Drains
  • Interior Drainpipes (including the bathroom, toilet as well as the kitchen area)

One of the main sources of blocked outdoor drains are nearby trees because the fallen leaves and twigs end up in the drains. These can get caught on twigs that have also been washed inside.

Using excessive amounts of toilet paper and flushing it down can also result in clogs occurring. This is especially true for items that are flushed down that should never be including sanitary towels and babies’ nappies which are disposed of in this manner very often despite warning advising otherwise.

Kitchen sinks also get obstructed often due to grease and food bits not dissolving properly, causing standing water issues and an unpleasant smell.
