    Drain Jetting

    24-7 Emergency Plumbing offers drain jetting for residential and commercial customers in London.

    Drain jetting, known also as hydro jetting or high pressure water jetting, is a safe and effective way of clearing blocked drains. It works by pumping water through a high-pressure hose releasing a powerful jet to target and remove any large drain blockages and cleaning pipes in the process. Drain jetting is effective for removing stubborn blockages, and our machines can work around tight bends to thoroughly clear the pipe system.

    We have the latest machinery which can quickly clear drains from simple build-ups of debris and silt to harder to shift blockages ensuring that water or sewage once again flows smoothly.


    Drain Cleaning and Descaling

    Pipes from kitchens, wash basins, urinals, and WC’s are particularly susceptible to scale which is exacerbated by London’s hard water. Drainage systems can accumulate problems over time from sediment or scale deposits which narrows the pipe diameter, slows flow and builds up to potentially create a blockage.

    We can descale the affected pipe sections with high pressure water jetting machinery. This method is highly recommended compared to chemicals which can have a detrimental effect on joins and seals within the pipe work system and the environment.


    Drain Maintenance

    Running water down drainWe can come to your home or business periodically to clean and maintain drains. The 24-7 Emergency Plumbing drain service picks up potential problems in good time before a severe blockage has time to form or escalate.

    Any drain can become damaged over time. Whilst hair, soap, grease, fat, leaves and other materials are expected to build up over time we also find more unusual blockages caused by items that should not be flushed away such as wet wipes and even underwear.

    Blockages can add pressure on pipework and this in turn can cause cracks. We offer a preventative drain maintenance service for heavier users, e.g. takeaways and restaurants who seek to avoid blockages in the first place.

    The drain maintenance service removes accumulations in pipes, resulting a reduction in pipe blockages. Drain maintenance also eliminates bad smells which can occur when pipes are no longer flowing smoothly.

    Once the service has been completed, our Drainage Engineer will report back on the works carried out and any steps needed to prevent future issues.


    Drain Repairs

    Sometimes wastewater pipe seals fail below ground or pipes become leaky or lose alignment through ground movement. We also come across pipes where tree roots have broken through requiring a repair.

    Once the pipe is unblocked, we can repair with internal structural liners. We usually use resin based liners which are entered into the pipe with air pressure applied to push the liner into position and, depending on the method, heated to help the resin to cure. The process seals the pipe walls and adds additional strength, preventing water seeping onto the ground and containing any odours from previously cracked pipework. The minor reduction of diameter is more than made up by the increased flow.


    Drain CCTV

    Drainage CCTVOur CCTV drain survey uses a video camera to locate any problems and identify repair needs accurately. We provide you with a full video report, together with a full written drain condition report and any follow up recommendations to fix the problem.

    We use the latest drain survey video cameras which can access any pipe size. We insert the CCTV camera into the drain so we can see a live view as the camera progresses through the system.

    Repairs to below ground drainage can most often be made with a pipe lining technique, otherwise we identify where to excavate down to the pipework and exchange damaged sections, connecting the new pipework to the existing drainage system.


    Drain Excavation

    When other methods of drain repair are not feasible the final option is drain excavation. We carefully dig down to the damaged drainage system. This allows access to change the drain connections and/or replace collapsed, misaligned and cracked pipes when relining is not adequate.

    We ensure that all works are carried out in a responsible way to minimise damage to the environment and meet all current UK health and safety legislation. We are experienced with all London drainage systems, ranging from clay, cast iron, plastic and concrete pipes.

    If you are renovating your home or business and require drains to be installed or moved, we can work with builders as required to provide a secure and safe drainage system.
