CCTV Surveys Winchester

Due to the very latest advances in fibre optic CCTV camera technology, 24 Hour Emergency Services can bring you the very best finest equipment for surveying blocked drains in Winchester. By using these specialist cameras, we can get to the source of the problem quickly. Thanks to this innovative process, we will save you time and money as there will be no need to dig up the surrounding area of where the pipe is located.

Our CCTV surveys in Winchester are the ideal solution for anyone looking for a reliable inspection service that won’t result in any ground being dug up and causing disruption. A thin fibre-optic camera will be fed into the pipework. Thanks to the great flexibility of these cameras, they will be able to reach even the most awkward spots inside the pipe system. Once the cause of the blockage is located, pictures will be relayed back and interpreted by one of our contractors.

The information we receive is then analysed and used to suggest the right course of action to tackle the problem. Our CCTV surveys Winchester for blocked drains enable us to get to the bottom of the issues ASAP, whereas in the past, we would’ve had to rely on guesswork to locate a blockage.

What this means for our clients is that we will spend barely any time digging up the road or garden where the pipe is located in order to find the problem. If you are currently dealing with drainage issues and are looking for an affordably priced solution, then reach out today on 01962 706239.

Drain Relining

Drain Relining in Winchester

If you find a crack in your pipe, it can be very expensive and intrusive to correct. Physical damage to an underground drainage pipe can be a real pain to deal with. The typical solution to this issue would previously have been to dig up the section of damaged pipe and replace it with a brand new piece. When you have a broken sewer pipe or drainage pipe in Winchester and don’t want to have the disruption of digging up the whole road, then reach out to the professionals for a drain relining solution instead.

Tree roots can occasionally grow into the pipes and drains, which will end up causing those pipes to fracture and start leaking. An example of how drain relining in Winchester can benefit you is in the way it minimises any disruption caused by digging up the surrounding area.

24 Hour Emergency Services have been dealing with Winchester drainage problems of all kinds for many years. Have you recently detected a terrible odour in your house or garden? Do you think that you might have an obstructed drain pipe or one that is in need of repair? Reach out today on 01962 706239 and see how our team members can help you.

Outside Drains

Outside Drains Winchester

Active prevention is definitely the best cure when it comes to keeping your outside drains in Winchester free from blockages. The issues with outdoor drains are normally associated with tree roots, leaves, branches and twigs entering and accumulating in the system.

Because of this, we recommend that you sweep up any garden debris that has accumulated in the yard. You can either dispose of it or put it into a compost pile. Care should always be taken in order to sweep out gutters as well. This will help keep the general area clear and greatly minimise the likelihood of blockages occurring.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Winchester Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch fibre drains in Winchester were used extensively throughout the 1960s and 1970s before being banned in the late 1980s. Unfortunately, there are several problems with these drains. As they only offer a useful lifespan of 40 years and as such, they are now beginning to fracture and fail.

Because Winchester pitch fibre drains weren’t made using long-lasting clay-based materials and plastics (which weren’t as advanced as they are today), they were typically made from wood pulp and bitumen instead. This made them far more affordable than their clay counterparts but their durability and overall strength was obviously greatly compromised.

When the weight of the ground on top of the drainpipes becomes too much, they begin to bend and warp. This will result in an effect known as ovaling. It is called that because the pipes become ova shaped thereby preventing the water from flowing through correctly. This can cause a blockage or, in some bad cases, a burst pipe.

The seeping water will also attract roots that penetrate the walls of the drains causing them to leak more and become clogged up even more. When the coal tar inner layer comes away from the pipe, it leaves areas that are no longer watertight. This in turn will lead to water leaking into the surrounding soil.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage Winchester

A Winchester waste drain blockage is definitely not a pleasing thing for a homeowner to have to deal with. The first indication is usually a horrible smell that will likely not go away no matter what. Normally accompanied by standing water, which will drain too slowly. Toilets may also become backed up and eventually overflow.

When water seeps through from a damaged sewer pipe and goes into your backyard or house, it is never a good experience. In case a weakened or cracked pipe has beem placed under a lot of pressure by a waste drain blockage, you may experience many additional problems including burst pipes. Whenever you notice a bad stench or see that a bathroom sink is not draining away correctly, please don’t wait until the water is overflowing. Instead, get in touch with the Winchester experts on 01962 706239 for a professional opinion.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Can Cause A Blocked Drain in Winchester?

There are many ways in which drainpipes become blocked up and begin to cause issues at properties. Clogged drains in Winchester may have been brought on by lots of different things.

More often than not, it was caused by people flushing items that should never be flushed. This includes many general household items and kids’ toys to food waste and hair. Oftentimes, blockages occur due to people using far too much toilet paper or flushing sanitary towels despite warnings against doing this.

If the blocked drain in Winchester is outside instead, then roots, leaves, branches and twigs are normally the main culprits along with various forms of litter that have blown in from the street. When these undesirable items accumulate inside the drain and pipework, they will create an impassable obstruction that leads to the drain overflowing. This is why it’s vital to always remove these items as soon as they appear.

In private residences, kitchen sinks may also become clogged. The root cause of this is most commonly food waste, oil and other grease that isn’t disposed of correctly. Regardless of the cause, we will know how to proceed, so give 24 Hour Emergency Services a call on if you have any issues with blocked drains in Winchester. We are always on call on 01962 706239.
