What services do we offer?

As drain cleaning professionals, we offer many services besides regular drain unblocking, some of these include:

CCTV surveys

CCTV drainage surveys are a critical part of drainage professional’s arsenal. In the past, a drainage contractor would have to use experience alone to work out what the problem was with a blocked drainage pipe. After the introduction of CCTV survey equipment, images of the inside of the drainage pipe can now be relayed to a computer where a visual analysis of the problem can take place. This means that the number of unnecessary drain excavation jobs has decreased exponentially, as the drainage firm will be able to formulate a plan to remove the problem instead of excavating to see what is happening.

Drain jetting

Drain jetting is the process where a high pressure jet of water is directed down the drain to remove any debris which may have accumulated within the pipe. This could be non-flushable items such as sanitary wear, nappies, contraceptives or even a build-up of congealed fat. High pressure water jetting proves extremely useful to drain jetting firms because instead of using physical methods such as rods to remove a clog, which can damage the inside of the pipe, the jet of water washes through the blockage harmlessly whilst also cleaning the inside of the pipe in the process.

Drain liner repair

After a drainage company has performed a survey on a problematic drain they may find that the drain is cracked, broken or even deviated. If this is the case they will then have one of two options – either excavation, to replace the damaged section of drain or if possible the installation of a drain liner repair. If a drain liner repair is possible, it will mean that excavation will be reduced to a minimum level and the drain will be able to be repaired with the minimum of disruption. In this process a resin impregnated liner is blown into the damaged section of pipe. The liner is then inflated to the internal pipe diameter and left to set. The resin bonds to the original pipe and after the liner has set the pipe will once again be able to carry waste with no problems.

We implement all manner of drainage solutions, from simple sink unblocking to the installation and maintenance of sewer pump stations.

Sewers And Drains – A simple guide to who is responsible for what.

Hello, and welcome to our blog,


Sewers And Drains – a simple guide to who is responsible for what.

There are an awful lot of pipes, drains and sewers hidden away from view inside homes and under the ground – so it’s worth bearing in mind that responsibility for their upkeep is in the hands of different organisations and people – including you!

What are you, the home owner responsible for?
The pipes, gutters and drains in and around your home, including the drain from your property up to your boundary. If you have a problem with these, you’ll need to call a drainage company – but check your insurance first as you may be covered.

What United Utilities is responsible for?
The big public sewers that take sewage and rainwater run-off to waste water treatment works; the pipes from your property’s boundary that lead into the public sewer; and many of the shared drains where several property’s drains meet together before they join the public sewer. If you suspect that one of these is blocked, please contact United Utilities.

What your local authority is responsible for?
Road gullies; these are small grate-covered openings at the edge of the roads, and are used to drain surface water from the highway. If you’re worried about blockages or smells from these, please call your Council.
