Replacing Manhole Covers

Manholes are vital in providing access to drainage systems. A missing or damaged manhole cover is an emergency issue, since both the public and employees can suffer severe injury if they fall down into the inspection chamber. If the problem manhole is on a road way, it may also mean traffic disruption and road closures until the problem can be fixed.

At No1PHD we can provide prompt attendance and immediate action to repair or replace the manhole cover, or entire manholes that need repair. We have a 24-hour emergency drainage service, and we’ll arrive promptly, erect safety barriers and get to work immediately to reinstate the manhole.

Find Problems Early With a NO1PHD Survey

Heavy traffic, excessive rain, or ground subsidence can all cause a manhole’s supporting structure to be damaged. Manhole covers can also be subject to rust, and can then break. A professional No1PHD inspection survey, using state-of-the-art CCTV drainage survey equipment, we can spot problems with manholes while they are inexpensive and quick to fix. We frequently find damaged benching, which results in water splashing up from the incoming pipes. Then waste begins to build up in the manhole, and a blockage develops.

Our expert and specific inspection report will identify the exact problem, and the remediation work that needs to take place. We can then carry out the work and when we’ve finished, the manhole chambers will be draining efficiently and the system will be properly sealed, with the manhole cover in place. If a full drainage survey is needed, we can also provide that at the same time.

Installing A Manhole Cover

One of the reasons for requiring a new manhole at a property, is the installation of an extra bathroom, which requires a new soil stack, and therefore a manhole and cover. At No1PHD, we can handle the whole job, from advising on the best type to choose and the most appropriate location for the manhole, to specifying the depth, and ensuring that the pipes feeding into the inspection chamber are correctly sited.

We’ll handle the excavation, load calculations, manhole benching and shoulder construction, as well as the fitting of the manhole cover, and backfilling. Our professional teams are experts in these jobs, and work to the highest standards, at a very competitive cost.

Advice On Manhole Covers

We can tell you which type of manhole covers are available, and give advice if you want to change the type. Measuring manhole covers is not as straightforward as it may appear – we know how to measure correctly, to ensure the right size is fitted, and can replace the frame if the new cover is a different size or design from the old one.

When it comes to manhole covers, some are recessed, while others sit flush with the surrounding road or surface. Materials vary, and include galvanised steel, plastic and the traditional cast iron. At No1PHD, we have in-depth knowledge of what’s available and will match your requirements as closely as possible.

Loading And Looks – Both Important

Loading matters, for the safety of pedestrians and vehicles, and for the life of the manhole. We’ll assess the tonnage that the manhole cover will need to bear and give expert advice on suitable construction and covers.

Where looks are important, such as in landscaped surroundings, we can help you achieve a smart finish, with one of the double type of manhole covers. These have a second covering over the top which can be specified to be unobtrusive. The upper layer is recessed, so that it can contain brick paviours or paving stones matching those in the surrounding area. The effect is that the cover blends in with the rest of the surface.

A professionally built manhole, that uses the correct materials and construction techniques, along with the most appropriate load-bearing cover, will last for many years.

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.
