Repair instead of having to replace your old pipes
Being a home owner can all of a sudden become much more stressful when you notice there is a burst pipe causing a water logged garden or a flooded drive. However here at Maintain A Drain we advise you not to panic and just give us a call as we are available 24/7 365 days a year, leave us to do the thinking and we will come up with the best solution for you.
You will either be able to repair or replace your old pipe work, this tends to depend on the age and wear of the pipe which we will determine at the time of inspection. If you have to replace the old pipe there are 2 ways to go about the problem, Trenching and Trenchless.
Trenching - This is the most costly and time consuming method of replacing the old pipes as you have to dig up the whole pipe effecting and disturbing all the landscape surrounding the pipe which is a lot of work. Thankfully this isn't the most popular method.
Trenchless - Our Trenchless method means we can resolve your issue with minimal digging.
- Two pits are excavated. One for the machine and a graduated launch pit for the introduction of the new fused together pipe.
- The burst head is connected to the new pipe.
- The steel cable runs from the burst head, through the existing failed pipe to the machine pit and then connected to the hydraulic puller.
- The hydraulic puller pulls the burst head which in turn is now connected to the new pipe replacing the failed drain in its entirety.
Save yourself some money and get your old pipe repaired rather than spending out to get a whole new pipe.
This will save us time meaning that you end up paying a lot less to get your drainage back on track and working.
