Cracked Drainage Pipes in Harpenden, Hertfordshire

Cracked drains really are a very serious problem that could result in extensive property damage, foul smells, polluted soil and groundwater as well as the spread of nasty diseases.

Possible causes of cracked pipes could include roots system incursions, the movement of earth and corrosion in the case of metal pipework.

Some of the most common signs of cracked drainage pipes include strong and unpleasant smells, localised wet patches and sinkholes and also cracks appearing in walls and floors. The signs of cracked drainage pipes may not always be obvious to home owners, they simply know something is wrong as water may not be draining as fast as it used to. Frequently the condition has to be confirmed by a professional inspection carried out by a qualified plumber. There are many plumbers advertised in parish magazines and on the web, but you need to ensure they are are professional and capable of doing a proper diagnostic check and repair if needed. Premier Drainage services Limited are just such a company and can visit your property in Harpenden, Hertfordshire at short notice.

How can Premier Drainage Services Limited help?

If you suspect that a drainage pipe or drain is cracked or damaged in any other way, the best course of action is to call on the services of Premier Drainage Services Limited. We will conduct a thorough CCTV inspection of the pipes to see exactly what the problem is.

Should it be discovered that the drain or pipes are cracked, it will then be necessary to determine what should be done to resolve the problem depending on the seriousness and extent of the damage.

Sometimes, the best option is to repair the drain using a trenchless technology such as a patch repair, which is quite cost effective, is much quicker and causes less destruction, while other cases will require a full excavation of the site and possibly even drain and or pipe replacement.

Slip lining

The slip lining method, is probably the oldest type of trenchless pipe fixing technology, and involves the insertion of rigid tubes into the cracked or otherwise damaged drainage pipes to improve their structural integrity and prevent further leakage.

The two methods of slip line installation are continuous and segmented installation. Either method involve the tubing being inserted as one separate piece or the installation of tubing in separate pieces. The most common materials from which slip line tubes are manufactured include fibreglass and high density polyethylene, also referred to as HDPE.

Cured in place pipe

Cured in place pipe is a drain relining method that uses trenchless technology and is an effective way of fixing cracked drainpipes. This method involves an inverted, tubular material that is saturated with resin being inserted into the cracked drain pipe with the use of either a winch or by air pressure.

An inflatable device is then used to expand the material to fit the shape of the pipe interior after which the resin is activated with water or even ultra violet light and held in place by the inflatable device. The resin is allowed to cure fully before the inflatable device is removed.

Full excavation and drain replacement

This is a last resort for when the severity and extent of drainpipe cracking is so bad that no trench fixing technologies are capable of rectifying the problem. In circumstances such as these, where pipes can not be repaired, the only option is to excavate the site in full and to replace the damaged drain or drain pipe.

Full excavation and pipe replacement will be more expensive and take longer than modern trenchless methods, and will be more destructive to the site. However, it is worth the cost and time when one considers the consequences of leaving leaking drains to continue unchecked.

We will do our very best not to leave you without any essential services while we complete our work and we leave youre property as tidy as we possibly can.
