Whether you need new drains laying or existing drainage systems repaired, contact Drain Doctor Birmingham for fast, efficient and professional service.
When new drain pipework made from plastic UPVC is laid for new builds or extensions very few problems occur.
However, it is suggested that existing drains need maintenance CCTV checks for service ability. This would reduce the risk of unexpected inconvenience caused by major remedial work or emergency drain clearance. Other common materials used for drainage pipework are clay ware and pitch fibre.
Repairs to clay ware are carried out by either digging up the defective area, carrying out a spot repair or replacing the complete length.
In addition, if the damage is within limits, a repair can be effected by lining the damaged area, with one of a number of materials, dependent upon the pipes purpose.
Pitch fibre, although not installed or used anymore, was used extensively in our area. It can also be dug up, spot repaired or replaced. More importantly, Pitch Fibre can also be re-rounded by a machine and returned to its original roundness within a specified tolerance, subject to condition.
The pipe run can then be lined as with clay-ware without disturbing the surrounding media (no dig technology) which may be covered in tarmac, concrete or paving slabs etc. This can be a very cost-effective rehabilitation method.
