Brighton Tree Root Ingress Removal Experts

Drains are incredibly important to ensure that waste water is removed from your property. In most cases, your network will function properly, but there are occasions when issues out of your control occur. While clearing blocked drains are relatively common due to fats and grease, tree roots can also prevent your drains from functioning correctly.

If roots move into your pipes during their search for water, then you should get in touch with a member of our team here at No1 PHD. Our experienced and certified drain engineers in Brighton can remove the problem and get your pipes and drains back up and running. For more information about what we can do for you, give us a call on 01425 208031 .

Removing Tree Roots

It is natural for roots to seek a water source, so there are occasions when they head towards drains. However, when they enter your drainage network, it can cause significant damage. In fact, tree root ingress is the second most common cause of blockages within drains. While you may not be able to prevent it from happening, our team at No1 PHD can eradicate the issue.

Our certified technician will arrange a suitable time to visit your property to inspect the issue and remove the roots. The most common problem caused by tree root ingress is clogs, but it can also lead to displaced pipes, broken or collapsed pipes.

When this happens, our Brighton tree root ingress removal experts will use top-of-the-range equipment to remove the roots from your network. Also, if the pipes remain in good working order, we will be able to use high-pressure water jetting to blast all of the residue left behind from the roots. This means we won’t have to initiate any drain excavation and so we can keep the disruption down to a minimum with our no dig drain jetting service.

What If Your Pipes Are Broken?

As well as removing tree root ingress, our professionals in Brighton can repair your pipes if they have been severely affected. Here at No1 PHD, our engineers perform a wide array of drainage services, including methods that will recover your systems once the roots have been eradicated from the pipework.

There are a few options that you can consider, including drain lining, which involves inserting a protective lining into the interior of the pipes. By doing this, the pipes will be protected and will be like brand new! Once the lining is secure, waste water will be able to flow through the pipes and limescale and sludge will be eradicated.

Drain patching is a similar solution but it only targets specific areas where damage has occurred, using resin patches in the interior of pipes to cover cracks and tears. In the cases where the damage is too strong, we may need to replace the pipes entirely. To do this, we will have to dig a hole or a trench to locate the pipes and remove them.

In most instances, a drain excavation is the last resort as it is rather disruptive and can be costly. So rest assured that our drainage engineers in Brighton will consider all the options and decide on the best course of action for you.

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.
