Repairing problem drains
Our first task is to understand the cause of the blockage, leak or smell. Advanced technology gives an accurate picture showing what’s happening in your underground drains.
There is usually no need to dig up your drive, patio, road or car park. Using CCTV with sonar tracing and dye testing, we can plot the route of your drainage system and detect the precise location of any blockage, leak or defect.
We transfer this information from the camera to our smartphones in an instant. You receive our report, images and a quotation there and then. All we need is your authorisation to carry out the repair and we can set to work straightaway.
A planned preventive maintenance plan with Drainflow will prevent expensive and complicated problems in the future and is the best course of action for companies susceptible to blocked drains.
If you’re in the business of producing and preparing food, fat and grease may build up inside the drains, repeatedly causing problems. A regular clean with our high-pressure water jet equipment will allow drains to flow freely.
Builders, home buyers and property investors
Two more ways in which a drain survey can help:
We recommend home buyers arrange a drain survey before completing a house purchase
Builders are advised to ask us to create a ‘map’ of the drainage system before starting work on an extension.
