How do I know if my drain is blocked?
If your drain is blocked you will usually notice that your waste will stop going away and the pan will fill up when you flush the toilet or it will slowly go away when you flush the toilet. Other appliances like the sink or shower/bath on the same branch in the bathroom might bubble or gurgle as you flush the toilet. Your gullies outside will overflow. There will also probably be a smell. Drains or Sewers are not always the responsibility of the owner-occupier of the property but sometimes they are the responsibility of the local water undertaker.
Drains may block because they are in poor physical condition and normal waste is not being cleared. They may be in satisfactory condition but have been abused by flushing away Wet Wipes, Nappies, Kitchen Towel, or other items such as plastic bags that should never be placed into the sewerage system. Excessive disposal of cooking fats and oils, along with other domestic products like soaps and DIY materials such as cement, sand and plaster can cause blockage of the pipework. Tree roots entering a broken drain can also be a problem.
What do I do if I have a blocked drain?
Call 07853 262 494 now! We will book an appointment to visit your property to assess the best course of action and then unblock your drain. We can also put our camera down to see what the problem was and give advice as to why you had the blockage and how to avoid further problems.
Blocked drains and other drain emergencies can occur at the most inappropriate times. Dealing with blocked drains can be extremely stressful for the property holder. Do not leave blocked drains to the amateurs, for the best service call Elite Pipeline Services Ltd.
Our homes and businesses have built in drainage systems to ensure that we have clean, healthy places to both live and work in. However, since these pipes and drains are tucked away out of sight, most of us tend to forget all about them. The only time we take any notice of them is when blocked drains cause a backup of water or sewage that have the potential to cause damage to our property or disrupt our daily lives. Every property owner should understand what causes a blocked drain and what they can do to prevent this problem from occurring.
Why have a Homebuyers Drain Survey?
Remember, after you have settled contracts, you are responsible for all Private Lateral Drains on the property. Is everything as it seems below ground??? There are many reasons why someone would require a drainage survey. It may be because you are buying a new house and the surveyor believes there might be an issue with the drains.
You may be thinking of building an extension on your home and need to find the correct existing drainage system nearest to your property to connect to. You maybe building over or near any existing Sewer and Welsh Water DCWW will insist on this type of Drain Survey. You may have recurring blockages and need to find out why this is happening. The house you are buying has had an extension and you want to check all the sewer lines below ground are in a safe and good working order. These are all very good reasons to check the pipes below your house and all for a very low cost. Imagine the cost of finding out things were wrong after you have bought the house for the agreed price! It surely would be a wise decision to have a Survey done before you spend all that money on your new house. Remember, after the sale, you are responsible for all Private Lateral Drains on your property.
Homebuyers Drain Survey and Full Report
Since the 1st of June 2007, homes in England and Wales needed to arrange a home information pack (HIP) for their homes before it is put up for sale. A drainage survey can be included in this report. Elite Pipeline Services can provide a full comprehensive written hard copy report, including recommendations and quotations for remedial work if required. A drain camera survey can give you the power to negotiate the sale price of the property, especially if remedial work is required. Along with the hard copy report the client receives video footage on DVD of the drainage system on the property you intend to purchase.
For a small fee Elite Pipeline Services Ltd can visit your site and carry out a drain camera survey with no mess or fuss. We use the latest in drain surveying technology with our state of the art cameras and WincanVX software. As preferred by local water authorities. We can complete video footage on site and you can receive the survey with recommendations and quotations for remedial work if required within 24 hours.
As time goes on, drains and sewers can deteriorate leading to possible structural problems. The cause for this deterioration can be for a variety of different reasons from ground movement to simply poor construction. Once problems arise, it is vital to know exactly where they are and what you are dealing with.
What can CCTV reveal ?
Fractured pipes – Imagine from above, a heavy vehicle driving over the ground, this can cause cracks and fractures in your drainage pipes. Untreated, these fractures will leak sewage into the ground which could cause subsidence to the property or the fractures could prevent good flow of waste causing blockages.
Collapsed drains – Can be caused by the drains being poorly constructed in the first place or a variety of other reasons from ground movement large tree roots pushing on to and into the pipes. If left, not only are blockages likely, but subsidence and environmental damage is possible.
Tree roots – Roots seek out moisture so they can find their way through existing defects in the drainage system. Once the tree roots have entered the drain, other material will get caught in them, making blockages far more likely and frequent. A drain camera survey can spot these issues early and prevent these issues becoming costly to the property owner.
Once the CCTV camera survey has been completed for the drainage or pipework system, Elite Pipeline Services can complete a full report using WincanVX software as recognised by local water authorities, making recommendations and quotations on the most cost effective remedial works, or where necessary the replacement of the pipe, this can include trenchless no dig technology. Whether sewer cleansing, pipe lining/patching, root cutting or open trench excavation is required we can recommend the best solution and complete the remedial works professionally and cost effective.
The survey can be emailed to the clients desk upon completion to save time before being printed and bound to be sent in the post.
