Brighton Drain Excavation Experts

The drainage network is a crucial element that contributes to the day-to-day running of a household or commercial property. In most cases, your systems should run smoothly, but there are times when issues occur within the framework. In the most extreme of cases, you may need to have your current pipes removed and replaced.

Thankfully, here at No1 PHD, we have a group of experienced and certified local drainage engineers that perform drain excavation services in Brighton. This full-scale project tends to be the last resort if all other repair methods have failed. Rest assured, though, that our professionals are the best in the business! So, if you require this service, give us a call today on 01425 208031 .

Why Opt for a Drain Excavation?

Common problems tend to be blocked drains, which is generally caused by a build up of fats, oils and grease that makes their way down our sinks and into the drainage network. Here at No1 PHD, we boast an array of different methods designed to clear clogs, unblock stubborn debris and get your systems back up and running. However, in severe cases you may need the assistance of our Brighton drain excavation experts who can be called out whatever the day and no matter what the weather is doing.

To complete this task, our team will need to dig a trench or a hole to access the pipes that run beneath your premises. Unfortunately, this will cause some disruption, but we aim to keep it to a minimum so that you can go about your day as normal. Our professionals will always try other methods first, but an excavation will be needed if the following happens:

  • More than a routine repair is needed
  • Pipe or drain has collapsed
  • Multiple leaks
  • Pipe or drain has cracks or is too old

Our Thorough Process

Before we begin digging the trench or hole, we will inspect the inner workings of the drain via a CCTV drain camera. Our engineers will assess the extent of the damage by sending a waterproof camera into the pipes and taking real-time images of the drains. At this point, we will find the best points of entry and begin digging.

More often than not, the pipes will need to be removed and replaced due to the extensive damage. To do this we will either manually dig a trench or use an excavator, which exposes the affected pipes. We’ll then start on the drain installation, making sure all the pipes fit together perfectly. Once the new pipes have been fitted, we will refill the trench inch perfect so that there is no risk of subsidence.

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.
