Drain Repair Typical Damage Types

Drain Repair Typical Damage Types

REPAIR FOR DRAIN DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS

 

FRACTURED PIPEWORK

The majority of drain systems are commonly over 20 years old, and are assembled from earthenware pipework, which is vulnerable to cracking and other types of damage being caused to the drain. Cracked and damaged drains allowing the loss of water can cause
erosion of the surrounding soil can which over time may damage your property.

COLLAPSED PIPEWORK DRAIN REPAIR

Drain pipes can collapse from too much pressure being applied to the top of the drains. The drains can also collapse from too much corrosion. This is a hazard to the entire draining system because collapsed drains causes blockages and flooding.

ROOT RELATED DRAIN DAMAGE

Roots can cause major damage to a drainage system, the roots can both damage pipework and damage it or they can also grow into already broken drainage. Roots usually cause blockages and break pipework.

Drainsmart can perform drain repair on all damage to drainage systems.

DEFORMED PIPEWORK DRAIN DAMAGE

During the 1960s, the most commonly used pipe material was pitch fibre, which has recently been discovered as defective as the pipework can break easily and be delaminated. This type of material can cause frequent blockages and deteriorate easily.

Comments from Drainsmart customers

Below are some of the drain repairs reviews we have had from Drainsmart customers.

"Drainsmart have been thoroughly professional and extremely helpful from my initial contact with them to the completion of a job well done. All the teams over the three visits have been extremely polite, tidy and hard working - especially during the recent heatwave! I would definitely use them again if the need arises and recommend them to others."
