What Are the Main Causes of Drainage Damage?

Understandably as with most constructions drains will suffer from natural wear and tear over time, especially if they are not regularly maintained. Because they are usually located underground it is quite easy to forget about your drains until something goes wrong. So, aside from natural wear and tear what other things are likely to cause your drains to become damaged.

The most common cause of drainage damage is undoubtedly blockages in the system that are not cleared quickly. With drain blockages, this puts pressure on the pipework causing it to crack, which ultimately leads to leaks that cause your drains to malfunction. This is why even minor blockages must be cleared as soon as possible, to prevent any build-up of waste in the system. The cost of clearing a blocked drain is significantly lower than repairing or replacing fractured or cracked pipework. A broken drain pipe is also a common cause of drainage damage. Unfortunately, once a drain pipe has been damaged it is often not possible to repair it and will need to be replaced. This type of damage can be caused by tree roots growing into the pipework, or simply through age and wear and tear.

The pipework in many older drainage systems is made from cast iron and as a result, is susceptible to rust and corrosion. Over time rust will weaken your pipework which will lead to splits and cracks in the pipes which again results in leaks springing up, and your drains in Essex can be adversely affected. 

As alluded to earlier, mother nature can also play a part in damage to any drainage system. This usually occurs when tree roots grow down into the system causing blockages and fractures in your pipework, which again causes leaks and flooding. One thing is certain, any type of drainage damage needs to be resolved as soon as possible, as delaying is likely to cause the damage to escalate. When this happens it can often lead to more serious issues such as structural damage which can affect the stability of your home or business. 

One of the first signs of broken drains is blockages, often we will conduct a CCTV drain survey and discover collapsed drains. This can be caused by the weight of the soil bearing down on your pipework which over time will cause it to crack and collapse. This type of damage can often be hard to spot as it is hidden underground, however, if you notice that water is not draining away as quickly as normal this could be a sign that your drains are blocked or damaged.

  • Drain Relining – Drain lining is probably one of the most used and effective forms of drain repair. It involves the insertion of a resin layer into your pipework, which is then inflated to effectively provide a second skin and seal all leaks, cracks and loose connections. Drain lining is popular as it removes the need for disruptive and costly excavation.
  • Drainpipe Replacement – In some cases, pipes are that badly damaged that it is impossible to repair them. In such cases, we will replace the damaged pipes with new modern alternatives. When we undertake drainpipe replacement we will do it in a way that causes the least amount of disruption possible. Irrespective of whether you need to replace a single pipe or a complete system our team will carry out the work quickly and effectively.
  • Pressurised Smoke Testing – During pressure smoke testing in Essex, non-toxic smoke is pumped into your drainage system. In addition to highlighting any weaknesses like cracks, leaks, or loose connections, this process also tests the effectiveness of vent pipes. Smoke testing is the ideal treatment to detect any problems with your drainage system.
  • Tree Root Removal – Tree Roots growing into your system will not only cause blockages but can also result in pipes becoming cracked and fractured. Our team can remove tree roots from your system using our tree root cutting and clearing tools.
