DOMESTIC DRAINAGE SERVICES
CCTV DRAIN INSPECTION
Drain excavation can be carried out by hand or by digger. The method used will depend on the size of the area, potential of other pipework in the surrounding ground and sensitivity of the surrounding area. Excavating by hand is often the safest and least disruptive option when working on a well established site. Our drainage team are experienced engineers and will only advise on excavation when absolutely necessary and will carry out a site inspection prior to commencing work to ensure the location of the issue is correctly identified.
- Pipes size. Ensuring the correct size for the flow of water. This will minimise the risk of blockage which would cause issues in the future.
- Provision for access hatches and rodding eyes to allow inspection and rodding/repair access.
- Ventilation – air from pipework must be vented outside to prevent foul air contaminating buildings
- Rainwater pipes discharge location – effect on foundations & surrounding properties.
- Depth and gradient of drain to ensure the water can flow
- Local authority regulations
CAUSES OF A BROKEN OR CRACKED DRAIN
- Unstable ground (earth movement, construction)
- Tree roots infiltrating sewer pipe holes / joints
- Inner (water) & Outer (ground) pressure changes
- Extreme temperature changes (ground freezing/thawing)
- Scale Build Up
- Wear & Tear
