In the past, this would’ve typically involved digging up the entire pipe causing additional disruption and pushing the cost up further. CCTV surveys are a modern solution which saves both time and money.
Here at Dorset County Drain Care, we use mini CCTV cameras to provide a non-destructive drain assessment. These cameras can pick up many hard-to-spot defects and will help us to accurately diagnose the problem and quote for the work required to correct the issue. To find out more about our CCTV surveys in Dorset, call us today.
When this happens, blockages are more likely to occur leaving you with foul odours and overflowing drains to contend with. Drain relining in Dorset is a service where a liner is impregnated with a silicate resin and inserted into the damaged pipe.
The liner is then inflated and heated causing the resin to set, after which, the liner is removed leaving behind a brand new pipe.
Pitch fibre drains were first installed back in the 1960’s up until the mid-1980’s and were eventually banned around 30 years ago. They are made using wood pulp and bitumen as opposed to clay and usually only last for around 40 years. In some cases, the bitumen can blister and break off, or the pipe itself can absorb water eventually collapsing under the weight of the ground above it.
Delamination is another issue that is commonly associated with pitch fibre drains, and this refers to the way in which the drain’s effectiveness diminishes with time. If you have pitch fibre drains in Dorset our team can help. We can either reline or replace the drain outright – this is dependent on the extent of the damage.
Nobody wants to deal with the hassle of a blocked drain as the effects can be quite unpleasant. Blockages are usually caused by foreign objects, fat, grease, hair and food debris. Other issues can also include rodent infestation and tree roots, both of which can cause damage to the pipework.
Dorset County Drain Care offers two solutions for blocked drains in Dorset. For minor blockages, we can use rodding which is a manual technique for clearing blockages. In more serious cases, we use a process known as drain jetting which blasts away the source of the blockage and leaves the pipework spotless.
