Septic Tank Emptying

If your septic tank is due to be emptied, or if it’s full, it’s vital to get it emptied quickly. There are a few quick and easy ways to know whether or not your tank needs emptying. If it is indeed full, or nearing capacity, it’s important to get it emptied to prevent water logging of the soil around the seep-away, to prevent drains backing up and to avoid bad smells.

Blocked Drain Services

The symptoms associated with drain blockages are likely well known;

  • Toilets not emptying properly when flushed

CCTV Surveys

CCTV surveys serve multiple purposes. From a geographic data point of view, this information can be complied and incorporated into mapping information. This provides a clear insight into not only what is over-ground, but the networks of pipework underneath.

Additionally, CCTV surveys are often used to assess the situation before action is taken. This allows us access into pipework that may be impossible to investigate manually. From there, the optimal solution can be provided to keep unnecessary costs and disruption to a minimum.

Gully Emptying

Gullies are generally located around paved areas. They help reduce flood risk in bad weather by collecting excess water. Due to this, there is a tendency for them to collect dirt, silt and litter that is washed into them along with the water. With a yearly increase in rainfall it’s good practice to have them regularly cleared out and checked. Ensuring they work as they should reduces the potential for flooding later.

Root Cutting & Cleaning

Wastewater flowing through underground pipes is a veritable treasure trove of nutrients. Or at least from the point of view of plants. This is essentially the cause for pipe blockages from root growth. Trees and plants detect water leaking from pipes. The roots grow towards the nutrients and water. Once they reach the pipe, they grow closer to the leak or seepage, and eventually enter the pipe. Forcing themselves through and causing structural damage to the pipe, they also slowly grow to block the pipe.

Pipes on your property are your responsibility, hence we include this as one of our residential services. Ensuring everyone has a cost effective, hassle free way of getting more technical repair services.

Ambient or Hot Cure Lining

More commonly, this is a solution for older pipes. Older pipework laid in around the 70’s is prone to collapse or blistering due to the materials used to manufacture it. In tandem with other restorative tasks, ambient and hot cure lining essentially restores damaged pipe. Breathing life back into it for several years. (All pipes should be regularly checked, cleaned and maintained.)

Aside from old pipes, this technique is also useful for areas that have suffered collapses or structural damage.
