Blocked Drains Billericay

If you suffer from a blocked drain in Billericay it can put a huge amount of stress on the everyday working of any home or business. Here at Essex Drainage, our fully trained engineers can access the latest tools and technology to help with drain unblocking.

This enables them to clear even the most stubborn drain blockage quickly and without fuss. It is vital that you deal with any blocked drain quickly, as failure to do so could have serious consequences both financially, and for the health of your property. That is why you mustn’t hesitate when you suspect you have blocked drains.

Our advice is to act promptly and seek the help of a drainage professional to both resolve the immediate problem and help safeguard you against issues that may occur in the future.

What are the Main Causes of Drainage Issues

Disposing household waste correctly makes a big contribution when it comes to preventing blocked drains. Quite often a blocked drain will occur because we have flushed or poured something unsuitable down a sink or toilet without thinking. This often happens because the occupants of a property are unaware of the negative impact this can have on your drainage system.

So, what are the types of things you should never put into your drainage system if you want to avoid blocked drains? For example, things like fats, oils and grease used in cooking should on no account be poured down your sink. This is because they will attach themselves to drainage pipes, and solidify resulting in a blocked drain. Other things that should never be introduced into your drains include baby wipes, nappies and sanitary products. This is because when wet they will not break up in the water and as such will clog up your drains. However, all drainage issues are not the result of misuse on the part of homeowners; occasionally mother nature will take a hand. Tree Roots have a habit of growing down into your drainage system resulting in blocked drains or the need for drain repairs.

What are the Signs of Blocked Drains in Billericay?

Several things will help alert you to the fact that you have a blocked drain. These include localised flooding, slow draining sinks, unpleasant odours around drainage outlets and loud gurgling noises. If you notice any of these issues there is a good chance that you have a blocked drain.


What Drain Unblocking Services in Billericay Can we Deliver?

The team here at Essex Drainage make use of several industry-leading solutions for drain unblocking in Billericay. The fact that our drainage contractors can utilise the latest state of the art tools and technology means they can clear blocked drains quickly and efficiently. The drain unblocking services we provide are suitable for both residential and commercial customers and consist of many techniques which include:

  • Drain Jetting – In drain jetting, high-pressure water jets are used to clear out drainage systems. Drain jetting is a very popular method of removing obstructions and cleaning blocked drains. These highly powerful jets of water will effectively flush out your system, not only removing existing blockages but providing a smooth surface on which wastewater will flow freely.
  • Drain Rodding – Occasionally, an especially stubborn blockage may require a different approach, in which case we use hard-wearing drainage rods to clear the blocked drains by hand. In many cases, we will attach a drain camera to the rods so we can precisely locate the blockage and clear it quickly.
  • Tree Root Cutting – Tree Root intrusion is another common cause of blocked drains in Billericay. This happens when a tree root grows down and penetrates your drain pipes. This often results not only in your drainage system becoming blocked but also damaged. To remove the offending roots we use a bladed cable that when inserted into your drainage system will sever the roots unblocking drains and restore your drains to full working order. 

Drain Lining Billericay

Drain Lining is probably the most commonly used technique when it comes to drain repairs in both domestic and commercial properties. This is because it removes the need for excavation which can be both disruptive and expensive.

What is Drain Lining?

Drain lining is a method by which damaged pipework can be repaired by inserting a resin layer into your drainage system. Likened to keyhole surgery in that it is inserted from the above-ground without the need for excavation. Once in situ, the resin layer is inflated giving your drainage system what is effectively a second skin. This will seal any leaks or loose connections preventing the escape of any wastewater. The smooth surface provided by drain lining is also an important factor when it comes to helping wastewater flow unimpeded through the entirety of your drains.


Drain Repairs Billericay

Any commercial or domestic property would not be complete without a drainage system. As a result, when it becomes damaged it is of vital importance that drain repairs are carried out as quickly as possible. Failure to resolve areas of damage quickly can lead to problems escalating, leading to repairs becoming not only more widespread but also significantly more expensive. Here at Essex Drainage, we can provide a complete range of drain repair solutions that can help restore even badly damaged drains to full working order. Alongside our industry-leading drain lining we can also deliver some other drain repair options which include but are not limited to:

Drain Replacement and Installation

While we will always look to repair damaged drains there are times when this is just not feasible as the damage is simply too bad. In these cases, we will replace your existing pipes with a modern new alternative. Whether you are looking to replace a single pipe or your entire drainage system we can help. We can also install complete new drainage systems which is useful if you are extending your property or undertaking a new build.

  • Pressurised Smoke Testing – One of our pressurised smoke tests in Billericay could be the ideal solution when you suspect there is a problem with your drains but aren’t sure what it is. Pressurised smoke testing will not only accurately locate any leaks in your pipework but will also help demonstrate the effectiveness of your vents.
  • Tree Root Removal – In addition to blocking your drains, root growth can also fracture and crack your drain pipes. Tree roots can be removed from your system using specialised root cutting and clearing tools, restoring your drains to full working order and protecting them from further damage.

CCTV Drain Surveys Billericay

When you find yourself with a blocked drain or damaged pipework it is not always easy to identify where it is located. When this happens it usually requires you to investigate further. The best way of doing this is to undertake a CCTV Drain Survey in Billericay. The detailed information we get from a CCTV Drain Survey helps our engineers precisely locate and diagnose any issues in your drainage system.

When performing a CCTV Drain Survey our experienced drainage engineer will guide a specialist drain camera through your system. This camera will relay live images to the engineer situated above the ground. These images provide him with the information required to assess the problem areas and decide on the most appropriate action to resolve the issue most cost-effectively.

After the survey, customers are provided with a detailed written report which contains information on the overall health of your drainage system. This report will also highlight any areas of concern and an accurate quotation for any work required to rectify the problem. CCTV Drain Surveys are also a useful investigative tool for anyone buying a home or business. While these are not mandatory requirements they can help give you peace of mind that the drainage system of your prospective purchase is in good condition.
