Drain & Sewer Desilting
One of the most effective ways of avoiding drainage problems in your commercial or domestic property is to ensure that they are cleaned on a regular basis. Thanks to drain and sewer desilting, from Drainage Care, you’ll be able to prevent all kinds of issues from developing. Desilting is one of the most effective ways of eliminating the risk of long-term damage.
Silt is a common problem in public drains and sewers which are normally placed under a great deal of stress. Keeping drains clear of silt can prevent blockages from forming. This will allow your drains and sewers to provide a reliable service. As such, you will be able to avoid flooding and other serious concerns.
What is Silt in Drains and Sewers?
Silt is the name given to the heavy matter that sinks and collects at the bottoms of sewage pipes. If this material isn’t extracted on a regular basis, it can easily solidify and harden. Silt can turn into a rock-like substance which reduces the flow capacity of your system. As such, it is extremely easy for blockages and other problems to develop due to the presence of silt.
Drain and sewer desilting is increasingly becoming an essential service for all kinds of drains and sewers. The average rainfall is increasing every year in the UK; as such, you need to ensure that your property is prepared. Reducing the level of silt in your drains can prevent flooding occurring in your home or business.
What is Drain and Sewer Desilting?
Desilting of a drain or sewer involves removing both hardened and loose silt. This will allow your drain to return to its peak working capacity, preventing all kinds of blockages. The experienced team at Drainage Care can provide a comprehensive desilting service to your sewers and drains.
Here at Drainage Care, we will normally begin our desilting service with an in-depth CCTV drain survey. As soon as we understand where the silt is located, and how serious a problem it is, we will work to eliminate it using Jet Vacuuming.
What are CCTV Drain Surveys?
Using a small, easily manoeuvrable camera, we will identify the exact location of the silt in your system. We will also be able to detect any other issues throughout your drainage system, such as cracked pipes, developing blockages and tree root intrusions. We will be able to understand how long the silt has been sitting in place, how hard it has become, and how difficult it will be to remove.
What is Jet Vacuuming?
Jet vacuuming is the procedure by which the Drainage Care team will break apart and dispose of silt. Using jet vacuuming, we will be able to break apart the build-up of silt. This material will then be forced forwards until it arrives as the next manhole or drainage access point.
From there, our experienced team will remove the silt from the system using jet vacuuming tankers. Once we have captured the silt, we will ensure that it is responsibly disposed of. This solution is essential to business and homeowners as it meets all requirements of the Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPG).
