Drains may crack and joints open up resulting from ground movement, water infiltration, tree root ingress or vehicular traffic. The only solution in the past has been to locate the defective area and repair the pipe after excavating to expose the drain. This is no longer the case.
Whilst excavation is still necessary in some cases Drain & Able in Reading Berkshire, your local drain company, offer a range of no dig repair techniques to repair structural and non structural defects in drains which can be undertaken with the minimum of cost and disruption.
When relining of a drainage system is not practical or suitable to resolve the issue with your problem drain in Reading in Berkshire there is no alternative but to carry out traditional excavation methods. Reading Berkshire’s well known drainage company, Drain & Able, can undertake drain repairs from minor excavations to a full drain repair service. The first important step is to identify the cause of the problem normally by use of CCTV drainage equipment. Once the extent of the remedial works has been determined Drain & Able can undertake the necessary drain repairs for you with the minimum of mess and disruption.
Where defects are localised to a small area, a patch liner can be used to produce a permanent high quality repair. Patches are applied by coating a fibre glass mat with a resin. The mat is then wrapped around an inflatable packer and pushed into position. The packer is inflated and the resin left to cure.
Where the drain is damaged along it’s length, the whole section can be lined. It involves the insertion of a lining “sleeve” impregnated with a polyester resin fibre along the length of the damaged drain. It is then moulded into place using air or water pressure and left to cure. The result is a new fibre reinforced pipe within the old damaged pipe.
Installing a soakaway in Reading in Berkshire and all surrounding areas provides a solution for rainwater from a roof gutter or from surface water drainage from a building or domestic dwelling to be collected and dispersed into the soil in a suitable location. The location of the soakaway should be positioned at least 5 metres away from the building or domestic dwelling to avoid the possibility of excess water damaging the foundations. This method of drainage however is not always suitable in clay soils as these do not allow water to pass.
Existing soakaways can sometimes become blocked with root, leaves and debris resulting in a partly functional soakaway. Reading Berkshire based Drain & Able can replace your soakaway with the minimum of disruption. Please call us on Telephone 0118 957 6244 to discuss your requirements.
