Did you know you are responsible for some of the drains that are on your property? Just because you can’t see a problem or perhaps see a puddle of water, doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem. Down below your property are drains that carry grey water from your property and more often than not can form blockages. In more serious cases, a collapsed drain or broken defective drain can occur if you have trees in your property. The good news is Drainsmart can help fix your drains.
DRAIN REPAIR FOR LEATHERHEAD HOMEOWNERS AND BUSINESSES
Generally diagnosis of the problem is determined by CCTV camera drain inspection to help form a decision and the best course of remedial work. The camera inspection will provide details of the:
Actual drain damage
The depth of the drain
The access to the problem area
The connecting pipework
These factors all have a bearing on the best form of drain repair.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF DRAIN REPAIR AVAILABLE?
If possible an insitu drain repair such as structural soft felt lining or structural patch lining is chosen as they are the most economical solutions, although in some cases there is no other option other than to excavate and replace the damaged pipework. If access problems or connecting pipework do prevent the insitu methods, sometimes a combination of localised excavations for access to drain sections, in particular, commercial drain repair is needed to deliver structural soft felt lining.
STRUCTURAL FELT LINING REPLACEMENT
Sometimes where an insitu drain repair would have been possible but the level of damage his deteriorated, then excavation and renewal can be the most likely outcome. It may also be decided that the level of water loss and the possible erosion of soil below the pipework where the foundations have been badly effected then, this is another case of a drain repair that requires structural soft felt lining replacement to correct drain repair work.
In these cases, we prefer to replace the defective section and during this process, we excavate and remove the softened ground below the leaking drainage. This area is then replaced with mechanically compacted dry mix concrete to consolidate the affected subsoil and remove any voids below the pipework.
Numerous other defects such as severely deformed and delaminated pitch fibre pipework or large tree root damage and of course economy will factor in our recommendations for drain repair.
All of our lead drain engineers work with the installation of new pipework/drainwork, including PVC-u and ‘super sleeve’. Drainsmart are fully conversant with the current Building Regulations which pertain to our industry.
All structural soft felt lining work is covered against faulty workmanship and materials and 15-year guarantee. Life expectancy is expected to last a minimum of 50 years.
A drain that on face value may need repairing, is not always the case. In the case of a blocked drain, sometimes a case of clearing out the blockage and jet hosing the drain to clean it from build-up, can in many occasions be the simple solution as we have experienced in drain repair Leatherhead jobs carried out.

Comments from Drainsmart customers
Below are some of the reviews we have had from Drainsmart customers.
“Tony was polite and efficient and kept in touch with the progress of the work by email. Would suggest emailing to book in work rather than leave messages with the girls on reception as they can only pass messages on not book the work in. They did come down to my area on the first day I called however, to take a look at the job as they were in the area which was very nice of them considering at that point they did not know if we were going to go ahead with the work.”
