Domestic Drain Unblocking

Drain unblocking is a common problem that many residential properties encounter across the UK. Sometimes, this is due to poor maintenance, and it sometimes can be the products the consumer buys that are not suitable for flushing. One of the main causes of blockages is cooking fat which congeals on contact of cold pipes.

Over a period of time, this builds up and eventually causes a blockage and stops the flow of water passing through. This causes a back-up in your drainage system which could eventually lead to blockages in your toilet and sinks, causing very unpleasant smells.

But not to worry! Help is at hand. The RWB drainage team are always happy to assist and to resolve your drainage issues, quickly and effectively by using state-of-the-art equipment, such as high-pressure jetting, CCTV survey equipment to remove and inspect and to diagnose the correct solution.

Delivering a first-class solution comes easy to RWB Group as we have been in the industry for over 20 years and have come across all types of blockages and drainage issues.

Being members of the WJA (known as the Water Jetting Association), this ensures that our engineers have been trained to the highest level of drain cleaning processes.

Our engineers know which jetting nozzles are needed and suitable for the unblocking process and ensure that the pressure is correct and prevent potential damage that could be caused by high-pressure jetting being operated by an unexperienced engineer. As a company, we believe in the correct training and equipment to be able to deliver a superior service to all our clients in the UK.

CCTV Drain Survey & Home Buyers Drain Survey

CCTV surveys are not only used to inspect pipes, but they are also used to diagnose problems which are not visible to the naked eye as the pipe works are underground. CCTV survey equipment comes in many forms and sizes which allow engineers to accurately diagnose drainage issues because this will be visible on a screen.

From this information, our engineers can inform the residential customer, landlord, local council or letting agent who has called for our engineers to attend the property.

RWB Group have invested in the latest CCTV technology on the market which allows the engineer to seek in great detail the interior of any pipework, culvert or large diameter pipes at a touch of a finger. The new technology allows the customer to receive the comprehensive report directly from site before the engineer even leaves the property.

This enables the customer to see exactly what’s wrong with their drainage system and the recommendations and costs for remedial work which have been confirmed by the engineer, in order to bring the system back to full working order.

Before CCTV technology came into play, many properties underwent serious damage, under or around their property without knowing. The number one cause was from trees and the roots that were present underground, which has grown into the drainage system undetected, and possibly leading to subsidence.

Our range of CCTV investigation services include:

  • CCTV Drainage investigation
  • Bad Smell Investigations
  • Rodent Infestations
  • Damaged Drains
  • Homebuyers Drain Survey

If something has gone wrong with your drainage system, having your drains mapped will make it easier to determine if the drainage system is located within your area of building work.

RWB Group UK’s drain mapping and sewer mapping services will provide essential information about your drainage systems in a digital format that comes fully annotated with site plans of the drainage system, as well as the associated drainage information such as the drain depths, the invert levels, the direction flow, and the drain locations.

Our engineers will also be able to give you information on how far the drainage system is away from the property foundation, which is vitally important when carrying out any excavation work to avoid any damage to the existing and local authority assets.

We use the latest drain mapping equipment, such as:

✔ 2D mapping

Domestic Drain Repair & Drain lining

RWB Group UK is an approved drain repair installer.

The RWB remedial division have the capability to carry out drain repairs on diameters ranging from 75mm to 450mm. The range of lining processes available to RWB Group UK, our engineers can complete repairs within several hours of attending your property, bringing your drainage systems back to full working order in no time at all, and at a fraction of the cost of excavation.

The common causes of damage to drains are typically caused by poor maintenance, in-growing tree roots, broken pipes, and fractures which allow groundwater to leak into the surrounding soil causing voids, which leads to subsidence.

Our engineers have gone on training courses to carry out pipe lining to repair damaged drains without this no-dig technology method, domestic customers would have to revert to repairing their drains by carrying out excavations. However, RWB Group have invested in equipment and trained personnel to avoid this, saving the client a vast amount of money, time and disruption.

Patch liners can be used to repair localised damage where full end-to-end lining would be unnecessary. This method involves placing a piece of impregnated matter on an elongated inflatable bladder and guiding it into place with the help of a CCTV camera.

When it is precisely located, the bladder is inflated, pressing the patch into place. The pressure is maintained until the patch has cured, the bladder is then deflated and withdrawn, and the job is done. Patch liners are becoming increasingly popular for dealing with isolated defects, offering a cost-effective alternative to a full liner or other repair.
