Local Drainage company Dorset and Hampshire

Posted on May 16, 2013 by Leave a comment

Local drainage company New Forset clears another troublesome blockage , We took a call from Mrs L at 1pm and sent one of our drainage engineers straight away we were on site within 45 mins !. This particular drain had a drain blockage that was happening every two to three weeks so we knew there was a underlying problem .

We set about clearing the drain blockage and and once the drain had been cleared we put the drain camera down to check the drain run that went straight under the house , we found straight away that the drain was full of tree roots and advised Mrs L of the problems with the drains .

We advised Mrs L that the best cause of action was to root cut the line by means of mechanical cutting then reline the drain under the house , we provided a free of charge quote and Mrs L asked us to get the works booked in .

If you would like to discuss any drainage issues you may have please contact us and we will be happy to help.

CCTV Survey in Dorset

Posted on April 30, 2013 by Leave a comment

CCTV survey in Dorset
We carry out a number of CCTV surveys in the Dorset and Hampshire ans surrounding areas on a weekly basis .

Mr H asked asked us to carry out a CCTV survey on a house he is in the process of purchasing (pre purchase cctv survey), we liaised with the estate agents on his behalf to arrange a time to visit the property in Bournemouth , when  we arrived at the address we set up our CCTV survey equipment next to the drainage manhole .

we found a number of issues on the drainage system from disused drains that had not been capped off to large cracks in the clay drainage pipes . We compiled a full CCTV survey report and quote for the drain excavation and repair including drain relining in Bournemouth and forwarded to Mr H .

He was able to negotiate with the seller and get the costs removed from the price of the house thus saving him money on the essential drainage repairs .
We then returned to the property a week after he moved in and completed the drain repairs and drain relining .

We as always got the customer to complete one of our checkatrade customer feed back forms , more feedback can be found at www.checkatrade.co.uk/totaldrains

Drain relining in Bournemouth

Posted on April 30, 2013 by Leave a comment

Drain relining in Bournemouth


Mrs B called us with a concern that her drains were leaking causing damage to her property , we attended and Carried out a full CCTV survey of the property , we found that indeed the clay drains were leaking due to cracks along the entire length of the drain 22 meters !!

The drain ran underneath the house so drain excavation was not a viable option we provided mrs bowman with a full written quotation and she asked us to undertake the nesseacary  drainage repairs so we proceeded to removed all the scale stuck to the drain on the inside with the aid of high pressure water jetting (hpwj) and continued to use the drainage CCTV survey camera until we were happy that the inside of the drain was clear of waste .

Once the drain was clear we inserted the drain liner this is a ( no dig method) that basically inserted a new drain inside the old one , the drain lining material is only 3mm thick so you do not loose flow , the drain liner covers all the cracks in the drains and effectively changes the pipe from a clay pipe to a PVC pipe , all this was completed with the minimum disruption to the customer and saving a huge amount of money on the job compared to the costs involved in carrying out a drainage excavation .

If you would like to discuss any drainage issues you may have please contact us and we will be happy to help.
