How to: Diagnosing broken and damaged pipes within the drainage network
Issues within a drainage network can be detrimental and cause ongoing problems for those within the surrounding areas. However, broken and damaged pipes can be highly complex to diagnose and following the diagnosis can be difficult to repair whilst trying to minimise any further disruption.
Damaged and broken drainpipes can be caused by general wear and tear and other environmental factors such as root-growth. Damage to drainpipes is extremely common and requires the knowledge of an experienced team.
Using CCTV Drain Cameras to diagnose drainage issues
For any ongoing drainage issue, our team recommend having a CCTV drain survey carried out. This process involves using a high-quality drain camera to crawl through the drainage network, taking high quality still images and video of the system.
Having this vital imagery will help a qualified drainage professional to properly diagnose the problem. Following on from this, a drainage team will be able to implement bespoke solutions, depending on the severity of the damage and if any other issues are happening such as fatbergs and other large blockages.
Repairing damaged pipes with drain relining
Damaged drainage pipes can often be repaired with relining, where a new pipe is fixed within the existing pipe. This method is often the preferred method of repair as it requires minimal downtime and means excavation isn’t required.
However, for extremely damaged pipework, dig methods may be required. Our specialist team will be able to advise on the best solution for your drainage issue.
