Basingstoke Drain Excavation Experts

In every home, there is a drainage system that helps remove all waste fed into your pipes. Whether it be the sink, toilet, or bathtub, each of these utilities relies on the full functionality of your drains. In order to ensure that drainpipes continue to work correctly, it is vital to have them regularly inspected and maintained. If this work is not carried out, severe damage can occur to your drainage pipes. If your drains have suffered catastrophic damage, it will be necessary to have a full excavation completed.

Here at No1 PHD, we’re confident in being able to handle all types of drainage work, including clearing blocked toilets and repairing leaky pipes. Our drainage engineers are all fully qualified and have the knowledge required to carry out thorough servicing. Contact us today if you need drain excavation work in Basingstoke.

The Importance of Maintaining Your Drains

Drainage systems play an integral part in our everyday lives as they are essential to the functionality of many vital facilities. The pipes that make up this system carry unwanted waste away from our home and ensure that we aren’t left with unpleasant odours or resting water in utilities. However, due to their constant use, drainpipes are prone to breakdown. These problems occur in the form of blockages, leaking, and even collapsed pipes.

The best way to prevent the above issues from happening in your drainage system is to have frequent maintenance work carried out. This work requires the attention of a professional drainage team such as No1 PHD as only they have the equipment and knowledge needed to deliver thorough drain cleaning. Whether it be blasting through blockages or relining your pipes, our No1 PHD drainage experts work in Basingstoke and will keep your system running smoothly. Through such attention, you’ll be able to ensure that your drains continue to function optimally.

Unfortunately, some damage to drains cannot be prevented by maintenance and instead requires that the piping be replaced. This process involves drain excavation, a service that can only be delivered by drainage experts. You will need this service if your system has any of the following issues:

  • Multiple leaks
  • Collapsed pipe
  • Old and in poor condition
  • Simple repairs won’t fix the damage

Drain Camera Inspection

Before starting any excavation work, our team will first assess the state of your pipes to see whether the issue can be fixed with standard repairs. We will carry out an inspection using a fibre-optic drain camera that will show us the inside of your pipes. Once we’ve identified the source of the problem, we will then be able to plan an appropriate course of action to have your system back up and running.

Excavation Process

Once the decision for excavation has been made, our team will consult with your regarding work schedule and cost. We will expose the pipe that is damaged by digging a hole around it before replacing the pipe or carrying out repairs. Our staff are experienced with excavations and will operate carefully, so that nearby pipes aren’t damaged. After completing the work, we will cover up your pipe, clear our worksite, and test your drain to make sure it’s functioning again.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
