COMMON QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY YOUR LOCAL DRAINAGE CONTRACTOR
WHAT’S A PRE-PURCHASE CCTV DRAINAGE SURVEY AND WHY DO I NEED ONE?
Many mortgage providers are now requiring homeowners in Bromley and the wider UK to have a property’s drains inspected before a loan is issued. This makes a lot of sense, as significant infrastructural damage can cost thousands in drain repairs, which could impact your ability to repay.
A pre-purchase CCTV drainage survey involves feeding a specialised camera through your system, to identify any issues. This allows us to provide advice as recommendations for minor or major drain repairs, before you move in and have to deal with a faulty/inefficient system. It might be you need patch repairs or drain lining, which we can also provide get everything working good as gold.
HOW CAN I MINIMISE THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUFFERING A BLOCKAGE?
Typically, we recommend Bromley clients adhere to the following advice:
Don’t dispose of cooking fat and grease down your sink
Install a cheap hair trap within your bath/shower plughole
Only flush small amounts of toilet paper
Never flush toiletries like sanitary towels, ear buds etc
Ensure young children know not to flush toys down the toilet (surprisingly common)
Avoid planting trees and hedges over or close-by drain openings
You might just think of blockages as minor annoyances, and they certainly can be just that. But significant blockages, especially located those located deep within a system, can lead to more significant structural issues. Then you might require patch repairs or drain lining, after a CCTV drainage survey locates where the blockage is. So it pays to call in a professional drainage contractor to knock the problem on the head while it’s still an inexpensive fix.
WHY HAS MY WATER BILL SUDDENLY SPIKED?
This can be a sign that there’s a leak somewhere in your system. It could be something obvious like a tap, shower or toilet, or something more insidious located deep within your system. These latter sorts of leaks are often signalled by puddles of damp ground in your garden. Either way, call in a Lining Sector drainage contractor and we’ll be able to find the source of the leak via a CCTV drainage survey, then fix it via patch repairs or drain lining.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I SUSPECT TREE ROOTS HAVE GOT INTO MY SYSTEM?
Don’t panic. This is a relatively common problem experienced by Bromley property owners, and we have the expertise to banish the invasive roots before they cause significant structural damage to your system. The relevant drain repairs usually involve cutting the roots away then extracting them, which we go into further detail on our general services page.
