Drain Repairs in London
DO YOU HAVE A DRAIN THAT NEEDS REPAIRING IN LONDON, KENT, SURREY OR SUSSEX?
Generally, diagnosis of the problem is determined by a CCTV drain survey where
a small camera is inserted into the drainage system and from the footage, we can
decide the best course of remedial action. The drain survey will provide details of
the actual damage, the access to the problem area and connecting pipework, etc.,
all of which have a bearing on the best form of drain repair.
Our most preferred method is an in situ drain repair such as structural soft felt
lining or structural patch lining for their many benefits including time saving,
lower costs and removing the need to excavate making it much less disruptive,
especially if the drain is under the building. Unfortunately in some cases there is
no option other than to excavate and replace the damaged pipework however we
try to avoid this as much as possible. If access problems or the extent of the
damage does prevent lining from being carried out, we will use a combination of
localised excavations to provide the necessary access together with structural
soft felt lining or structural patch lining to minimise the disruption.
On occasion, an in situ repair may be possible however the level of water loss
could have had a detrimental effect to the surrounding ground and therefore
renewal will allow the replacement of the softened ground below the leaking
drainage with mechanically compacted dry mix concrete to consolidate the
affected subsoil, removing any voids, and this would be considered as the
correct remedial drain repair work.
Our recommendations are made after analysis of the drain survey by our office
team and site engineers, taking into consideration possible implications
including current Building Regulations and Local Water Authority legislations
and we are well equipped in both plant and machinery together with experienced
personnel to implement the chosen technique.
Once complete, the works carried out are covered by our 15-year guarantee
against faulty workmanship and materials although the manufacturers say that
the life expectancy of structural soft felt lining and structural patch lining is at
least 50 years.
