Drain Repair & Relining

One of the most common reasons for blocked drains is the presence of unaligned or damaged, broken or cracked pipes in your drain system. In resolving this issue, your Hertfordshire drain specialists will have to first investigate the problem through CCTV drain surveys. Depending on the severity of the problem, we may adapt either a no-dig drain repair or a repair that will need digging. In any case, residents of Stevenage, Amersham, Royston, and nearby cities are ensured of quality drain repair services.

 

Why Drains Break and Crack

Prevention is always better than cure but J Snow Drainage understands how difficult it is to maintain your drains. So if there is a way to spare your drains from breaking or cracking, the human instinct is, of course, to take note of them. 

 

According to drain specialists, the most common reasons why drains break and crack is the material used for the piping itself. In 1960s, the most common type used was vitrified clay. These are generally brittle pipes because they were made of clay. If your home’s drainage system was established in the 60s, chances are your piping is weak. Today, vitrified clay is among the cheapest pipes (that is, if they are still used up until today). 

 

Damages Caused by Broken or Cracked Drains

Broken drains can be headache. It can have your home or workplace smelling from bad to worst. Dampness will occur on your floor. And you will not be able to use your sink, shower and toilet. In other words, your daily function will be put to a stop. Fortunately, Hertfordshire home and business owners can count on J Snow Drainage to be there as quickly as possible, so you wouldn’t have to prolong your agony. Once we have our CCTV drain survey completed, we will immediately know the type of drain repair to do.

 

Drain Repairs We Offer

There are two types of drain repairs being utilised by J Snow Drainage, depending on the severity of the damage. 

 

The advanced no-dig repair technology, more commonly called drain relining, is most applicable for situations where the drain is not too broken or cracked. During drain relining, there is no need for deep excavation which may take days to complete. J Snow Drainage has been using the advanced no-dig repair technology for years so you can count on us to do this job smoothly, whether it’s 4” or 6” drainage pipes, whether it is made of concrete, plastic or any other material.

 

The other type of drain repair is one where digging is inevitable. These are situations where the broken drain is too bad that we have to open dig to have an actual contact with your piping system. We have handled deep excavation drain repairs in the last decade, and we assure you that we can definitely provide the solution to this problem.

 

What is Drain Relining?

Drain relining is the best solution for simple broken drain or cracked drain problems. Basically, during drain relining, your drainage specialist will use a felt tube with plastic coating. An accelerator will be used to pour in a catalyst and a mixture of resin to wet out the liner. The liner is then entered into the broken drain before it is inflated. In the end, what is formed is a pipe within a bigger host pipe.

 

Our Guarantee

Drain repairs and drain relining come with a 10-year guarantee to make sure that you do not have to deal with drain problems at anytime in the next decade. J Snow Drainage not only offers inexpensive drainage services but also a decade’s worth of guarantee for your peace of mind.
