Expert Drainage Services Throughout Sussex & Surrounding Areas
Blocked Drains (including) baths, sinks, toilets:
Express Drainage offers a genuine 24 hour service, 365 days a year. Emergency call-out! Our engineers can deal with all kinds of blockages using state of the art equipment - we offer a huge amount of experience.
High Pressure Jetting:
High pressure jetting uses a stream of high pressure water, in pipes for cleaning and debris removal. Water at the correct high pressure can cut through roots, dissolve blockages, emulsify grease and soaps whilst washing pipe wall surfaces. The water from the jet can also wash away built up dirt and debris from the bottom of the pipe at the same time.
CCTV Survey Technology is the best and most cost effective way to inspect drains and sewers. We use specialist camera systems to carry out CCTV drain surveys. The camera relays images to the engineer so they can assess the structural condition and integrity of the sewer or drains, with no disruption to your property or the environment.
Maintenance of drainage systems:
All drains and waste pipes require periodic maintenance and cleaning to prevent the accumulation of scale, silt and grease or foreign objects. A drain maintenance service can help reduce the possibility of disrupted blockages occurring to your drainage system/s. This will ensure that your pipe work is constantly operating at its maximum efficiency and can help extend the life of your drainage system/s.
Gutter cleaning using SpaceVac technology:
SpaceVac are the worlds leading manufacture of high level vacuum cleaning and inspection systems. Their pioneering technology is revolutionising gutter cleaning. Using the SpaceVac system is cost effective - less time consuming and extremely safe. There is now, no need to hire expensive access equipment like scaffolding and cherry pickers. Gutters up to 4 storeys high can be cleaned and inspected at ground level, as there is no constant moving of ladders and equipment - cleaning can now be done in a fraction of the time. The health and safety issues normally associated with working at heights are now minimised or completely removed.
Gutters are designed to protect the foundations of your home, by taking the rain water away from the building - leaking gutters can cause serious problems to the structure of your home. Express Drainage Ltd repairs all types of guttering to residential and commercial properties all over Sussex.
Leaking drains very often go undetected for years or even decades, but if close to the building - the ground beneath the foundations can be weakened by the water, resulting in subsidence. It is for this reason that Surveyors may request a drainage report when they have seen cracking or other indications of foundation movement. In these cases, a water or hydraulic test is required - this involves plugging the drain at the lower end, filling it up with water, and then waiting to see if it holds the water or if it leaks away. When the plug/s are removed, the water should flow away rapidly to indicate that the drain is not blocked. There may be several sections of the drainage, each of which will require testing separately.
Drainage renewals and repairs:
Drain and sewers may crack due to ground movement, subsidence, corrosion or tree root infiltration. Drain repairs and renewals can now be carried out with minimum cost or disruption, using our state of the art equipment. our engineers pride themselves on their professional attitude, and ensure that all work will be carried out in an extremely professional manner.
