A big thank you to Steel Drains, We had a 92 metre culvert running through our estate which had been blocked for possibly more than 60 years causing flooding to nearby properties. Using their specialised equipment and a camera it was soon found to be blocked with years of silt and stones. Due to the length of the run it was suggested that we install an inspection chamber half way in the road. This was duly done and when Steel Drains returned they were able to clear both ways, the chamber now gives an access point for future maintenance. It was also found that roots from a nearby willow tree had entered the pipe, this was quickly cleared with their specialised flailing attachment. The team were professional and courteous at all times. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs a committed company who not only give good advice but get the job done.

FAQs

How often should a septic tank be emptied?2023-07-10T13:45:21+01:00

The frequency of septic tank emptying depends on various factors, including the size of the tank, the number of occupants on the property, and the volume of wastewater generated. As a general guideline, septic tanks should be emptied every 1 to 3 years to ensure proper functioning and prevent issues such as blockages and overflows.

How is sewage cleaning performed?2023-07-10T13:12:33+01:00

Sewage cleaning involves the removal and treatment of wastewater and sewage from drains, pipes, and sewage systems. Professional cleaning companies utilize specialized equipment, such as high-pressure jetting machines and vacuum tankers, to clear blockages, remove debris, and sanitize the affected areas. The process may also include the application of disinfectants to eliminate harmful bacteria and odors.

What is involved in drain installation?2023-07-10T13:12:13+01:00

Drain installation refers to the process of setting up a new drainage system or extending an existing one. It typically involves several steps, including site inspection, planning, excavation, laying pipes, connecting fittings, and backfilling. The installation should be carried out by trained professionals to ensure proper alignment, gradient, and connections for efficient wastewater flow.

What should I do if I have a drain blockage?2023-07-10T13:11:53+01:00

If you have a drain blockage, it is recommended to avoid using chemical drain cleaners, as they can be harsh and cause further damage. Instead, contact a professional drainage service provider who can use appropriate techniques such as drain rodding or drain jetting to clear the blockage safely and effectively.

How can I prevent drain blockages?2023-07-10T13:11:36+01:00

To prevent drain blockages, it is important to avoid disposing of items such as grease, oil, wipes, sanitary products, and food waste down the drain. Regular maintenance, including drain cleaning and inspections, can also help identify and address potential blockage issues before they worsen.

Is drain jetting suitable for all types of drains?2023-07-10T13:11:18+01:00

Yes, drain jetting is suitable for various types of drains, including domestic and commercial systems. The pressure of the water jet can be adjusted according to the specific needs of the drain, ensuring safe and efficient cleaning without causing damage.

How effective is drain jetting in clearing blockages?2023-07-10T13:10:41+01:00

Drain jetting is highly effective in clearing blockages, even stubborn ones. The force of the water jet can break down and flush away blockages such as tree roots, scale buildup, and solid deposits, ensuring a thorough cleaning of the drain.

Why should I consider a CCTV drain survey?2023-07-10T13:06:25+01:00

There are several reasons why a CCTV drain survey is beneficial. It helps identify potential problems before they escalate, saves time and money by pinpointing the exact location of issues, and provides evidence for insurance claims or property purchases.
