If there is a crack in your pipe, it can end up being very expensive and intrusive to correct the issue. Any kind of impact 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 just dig up the section of damaged pipe and replace it with a brand new unit, however this is no longer necessary. If you have a broken sewer pipe or drainage pipe in Worthing and don’t want to have the disruption of digging up the whole road, then get in touch with the professionals for a drain relining solution instead on 01903 380 056.

Tree roots can often get into the pipes and drains, which will end up causing those pipes to fracture and start leaking out. One example of how drain relining in Worthing can benefit you is in the way it minimises any disruption caused by having to dig up the surrounding area.

Worthing Outside Drains

Prevention is certainly the recommended approach when it comes to keeping your outside drains in Worthing completely free from blockages at all times. The issues with outdoor drains are normally associated with roots, leaves and twigs entering and accumulating in the system to cause an issue.

24 Hour Emergency Services would always recommend that you sweep up any garden debris that has accumulated in the yard regularly. You can either dispose of it or put it into a compost pile. Care should always be taken in order to clean out your gutters as well.

Pitch Fibre Drains

Pitch Fibre Drains Worthing

Worthing pitch fibre drains were used extensively throughout the 1960s and 1970s. They were a very common choice all over the UK before being banned in the late 1980s. There are several problems with these drains that are now apparent. As they only offered a useful lifespan of 40 years, these problems are now affecting many homeowners.

Pitch fibre drains in Worthing weren’t made using long lasting clay and plastics but wood pulp and bitumen instead. This manufacturing choice made them far more affordable than their clay counterparts. Unfortunately, their durability and overall strength was greatly compromised.

When the weight of the earth on top of the drainpipes becomes too much for the pitch fibre drains to bear, they will begin to bend and warp. This results in an effect known as ovaling, called that because the pipes become oval-shaped thereby preventing the water from flowing through correctly. This can easily cause a blockage or, in some bad cases, a burst pipe.

The leaking water will also attract nearby roots that penetrate the walls of the drains causing them to leak more and become clogged up even more than they already are. When the coal tar inner layer comes away from the pipe, it will leave areas that are no longer watertight.

Waste Drain Blockage

Waste Drain Blockage in Worthing

Waste drain blockage in Worthing is definitely not a pleasing thing for a homeowner to have to deal with, regardless of its severity. The first indication of a bad blockage is usually a horrible smell that will likely not go away no matter what you try. Usually also accompanied by standing water, which will drain too slowly.

When the water seeps through from a damaged sewer pipe and goes into your garden or house, it is never a good experience. If a weakened or cracked pipe has been placed under a lot of pressure by a waste drain blockage in Worthing, you may experience many additional problems including burst pipes.

As soon as you notice a bad stench or see that a bathroom sink is not draining away the way it should, please don’t wait until the water is overflowing. Reach out to our team instead on 01903 380 056.

What Causes a Blocked Drain?

What Are the Causes Of A Blocked Drain in Worthing?

There are numerous ways in which drainpipes become blocked up and begin to cause issues at Worthing properties. Clogged drains may have been brought on by lots of different things, rather than one single mistake.

They are commonly caused by homeowners and their families flushing items down the toiler that should never be flushed. This can include many general household items and children’s toys to larger food waste and hair. Oftentimes, the blockages occur due to people using far too much toilet paper or flushing sanitary towels and baby nappies despite warnings against doing this.

If your blocked drain in Worthing 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 streets nearby. When they accumulate inside the drain and pipework, they will create an impassable obstruction that leads to the drain overflowing, which is why it is vital to always remove these items as soon as they appear.

In private homes, kitchen sinks often become clogged. The root cause of this is most commonly food waste, oil and other grease that isn’t disposed of correctly or that has built up over very long periods of time.

Regardless of the cause of the blockage, we will know how to proceed, so give the experts a call on 01903 380 056 with any problems. We are available all over the Worthing area, 24 hours a day!
