Drain Repairs

Problems and their causes

Drain repairs can appear from nowhere and a minor problem can quickly become a major one. Here’s how to identify that a problem is occurring.

  • Chambers, toilets and gullies blocking or being slow to clear.
  • Pooling water around drainage assets, including gullies and chambers.
  • A pungent and unpleasant smell, especially on warm days.
  • Sinking or damp ground directly above suspected drain-pipe routes.
  • Large trees growing on-top or adjacent to suspected drain-pipe routes.

The five points above may indicate that a drain has structural issues, with a worst-case scenario being a collapsed. Variety of reasons from ground movement, heavy vehicle, poorly fitting seals and joints, root ingress, or simply deterioration gradually over time.

Whatever the cause, it is vital you get the problem attended to before it gets worse. Structural defects tend to become more severe and more expensive to solve if left unresolved. It always pays to investigate potential issues as soon as they occur.
