CCTV HOME BUYERS REPORTS AND GENERAL INVESTIGATIONS
High resolution colour cameras produce a comprehensive CCTV survey of the drainage system. We will supply a full report with still photographs together with a DVD showing all defects and problematic areas noted. Also included are recommendations and a quotation for any required repairs.
Build-Over surveys are now required by local water authorities when a property is being extended in any way over a public sewer or within 3 metres of the new build, lateral drain or any pipe belonging to the water authority. We carry out the survey to the water authority’s requirements, which includes a full report, still photographs and a scaled block plan. All surveys are carried out to WRc manual of sewer condition classification fourth edition specifications.
If you are unsure whether you need to enter into a Build-Over agreement with the water authority, please telephone us for free advice.
No Dig CIPP lining is the perfect solution for pipe repairs underneath buildings, driveways and areas where excavation would be difficult. We have over 25 years experience in lining all types of pipework.
We can carry out sonar electro-tracing for accurate location of problem areas, enabling root cutting, lining or replacement of pipes with minimal disruption.
We will supply a full detailed report including a plan (scaled where appropriate), recommendations with still photographs and a quotation.
All of our reports are designed to comply with the requirements of water authorities, and are prepared in a format which is extremely detailed, and at the same time, fully comprehensible.
Blockages are cleared using high pressure jetting equipment.
BENEFITS INCLUDE :
- De-scaling, creating improved flow
- Obstructions being removed
- Roots being cut out, preventing collapsed pipes
- The ability to clear pipes with limited access
- A clean efficient method of clearing all types of blockages
High pressure jetting is recognised as a fast efficient method of cleaning and clearing blockages to underground pipework without affecting the natural structure of the pipes. This method is also ideal where there is limited access.
The advantages of using high pressure jetting against conventional drain rods include less time on site, full de-scaling of pipework, increased distance of pipework cleared and the ability to work in areas with limited access. There is also less chance of the pipework being damaged.
Blockages are often found to be some distance away from the point where sewage is overflowing, again pressure jetting gives the flexibility by reaching anything up to 100 metres from the access point.
FAT AND GREASE TRAPS
Fat and grease traps can become problematic if not cleaned and emptied on a regular basis. We offer a maintenance service at a regularity to suit your needs, ensuring your business can operate without the need for emergency call-outs.
In some cases, drainage systems were installed many years ago. Golf Clubs, Hotels and Restaurants for example may elect to have regular maintenance carried out to keep drains running clear and increase the longevity of the system.
This works out to be more cost effective than replacing the drainage system, and causes less disruption than emergency call-outs. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
REPAIRS AND REPLACEMENT
Where pipes are collapsed or severely broken, replacement may be the only answer.
We will ensure that all excavations are minimised to the problem area by using CCTV and sonar tracing equipment. During the works, the area affected will be made inaccessible to anyone but the workforce, and all affected areas will be reinstated to their original state.
WORK IN PROGRESS
Hardstandings and lawns will be fully protected whilst excavation is in progress.
All drainage replaced conforms to British and European standards and Part H of the building regulations.
Areas affected will be made good by qualified tradesmen to your satisfaction, including the reinstatement of tarmacadam car parks and highways. Excess spoil will be removed and the area affected will be left in a tidy condition.
DRAIN PIPE TECHNOLOGY
Disruption will be kept to a minimum with state of the art drainage equipment.
