Common Questions About Drain Repairs in London and the Surrounding Areas:
- What Causes Damage to My Drains?
- Can Tree Roots Cause Long-Term Damage to My Drains?
- What Kinds of Drain Repair Can SDS Provide?
- How are Damaged Drains Diagnosed?
There are many different issues which can lead to damaged drains. Some of the most common causes of drainage issues include:
- Nearby Groundworks – Nearby groundworks can cause the earth around your drains to move and increase pressure on vulnerable areas. It is also possible for digging equipment to directly impact your home or business’ drains.
- Wear and Tear – Despite their hard-wearing nature, it is possible for simple wear and tear to cause damage to your drains. Many years of having to transport water and waste can take its toll on a system, leading to serious damage.
- Improper Use – If you force your drainage system to deal with waste it isn’t designed to, you can cause serious damage. Regularly disposing of FOG Waste and wet wipes, for example, can lead to issues within your drainage system.
Nearby tree roots will naturally grow in the direction of your drains. They will detect the water and nutrients within the pipe. Over time, tree roots can grow into your pipes through even the smallest of gaps. Whether you have a loose connection, or even a small crack in the pipe’s surface, tree roots can intrude.
Once inside, these tree roots will grow extremely quickly. They can not only cause serious blockages within your pipe, but also long-term damage to your drainage system. In many cases, the pipes affected by tree roots will need to be replaced.
Here at SDS Drains, we can provide industry-leading drain repairs to suit your needs. We specialise in delivering in-situ repairs, which do not require any large excavation projects. Drain lining and pitch fibre reforming can be used to restore almost any drain pipe to full working order. Drain lining can be used to create a new interior lining of your drainage pipe. This will prevent waste and water from escaping your drains, and other materials from entering.
If the pipe itself has become deformed, we can utilise pitch fibre reforming to restore the system to full working order. This will force the pipe back into shape, allowing drain lining services to plug any holes within the pipework.
The Specialised Drainage Services team utilise industry-leading CCTV drain surveys to identify issues within your drains. Using a small, easily-controllable camera, our engineers can thoroughly inspect your drain pipes. We will be able to diagnose any drainage issues you might be suffering from. Just some of the drain pipe conditions that we are able to identify using CCTV drain surveys include:
- Cracked and Fractured Pipes.
- Full and Partially Blocked Drains.
- Collapsed Drains.
- Loose Pipe Connections.
