Keep your pipework running as efficiently as your business
Small bore pipework makes up the drainage system that takes unwanted water waste away from sinks, dishwashers, toilets, urinals and showers.
Some of this pipework is as small as 25mm in diameter. It is therefore easy for these pipes to become narrower and eventually blocked with limescale. Over time, this can build up to such an extent that the space becomes too narrow for anything to pass through. This is especially noticeable if you live in a hard water area like the South East.
You might start to see evidence of blockages, problems with water not draining away or potentially leaks due to cracked or broken pipework.
Small bore pipework can also be compromised by the build-up of urine and other waste products. These can be very corrosive, especially to pipework in buildings where there is a lot of human traffic.
These problems are not only costly but can be very disruptive to your business in terms of downtime.
Cleaning and descaling internal pipework is a very specialist job. However, it is quick, economical, and can be carried out with minimal disruption to your business. A regular small bore service will help to keep pipes clean and prevent blockages in order to ensure that your building continues to operate as efficiently.
Please call us today on 01628 302 306 to discuss the benefits of implementing a descaling program for your business.
Clear Drains offers No-Dig technology for pipe relining, this is the most convenient and cost effective way of repairing damaged pipes/drains without the hassle of a complete dig up. We can line pipes from 100mm up to 900mm in size. All work is carried out from the manhole above ground.
Pipe relining is a way of repairing a pipe by inserting and inflating an epoxy or polyester based resin lining. Once the liner is in place it prevents leaking joints, ingressing tree roots and even new connections can be attached. Connecting lateral joints are opened up with the use of specialised cutters.
This technology is cost effective as it saves businesses from valuable downtime and extensive excavation. The newly relined pipe has over 50 years expectancy, it’s as good as replacing with a new pipe. Our teams can identify problems and put in place the correct course of action required.
If there’s no other way, excavation is a must
Sometimes, the need for excavation is the only way forward to repair drainage problems. We will provide a full service from quote through to completion taking into account all environmental factors and incorporating SuD’S – Sustainable Drainage Systems.
We ensure our teams are fully briefed before proceeding and project management and H&S are paramount.
If you are looking at incorporating SuDs, Clear Drains will visit your site free of charge to discuss. We have all the specialist knowledge required to investigate and provide the best solution for you and your building.
Clear Drains offers a complete maintenance service including refurbishment and new installation for pump stations and pump systems.
Pumping stations/systems are facilities which pump fluid from one place to another. Most of the drainage in the UK works on a gravity principle so quite literally everything flows downhill. Where this is not possible (e.g. where the drains are in low level areas below the main drain line) it has to be pumped. In some cases pumping stations/systems are used as a boosting point when the drain run is over a long distance.
There is a vast array of pumped stations/systems from the most basic to the extremely complex with computer controlled switching and backup systems.
Clear Drains undertakes a range of pump services for our clients. A typical service will include the following elements:
This is all undertaken under current Health & Safety requirements including Risk and Method statements and environmental legislation.
We can also arrange for one of our tankers to be on site to empty sewage chambers and drains and to enable full access to the pumps for service and repair.
Pre-Planned maintenance is the way forward for pumps
Pumps can be very expensive to replace and depending on their use,need to be serviced at regular intervals throughout the year to keep them running. Repairing or replacing pumps can take some considerable time as few manufacturers can afford the luxury of stocking all components that might fail. Regular maintenance should reduce running costs and minimize costly and disruptive failures. We can offer a total solution to suit your needs.
