Environmental Services (Chesterfield) Ltd are able to meet all of your drainage requirements and, more importantly, identify the most cost effective way to do this. If a major defect, such as a fracture or leak is found in your pipework then we are able to target and repair that specific area.
Equipped with the latest in CCTV camera equipment our engineers can identify the problematic areas, remove the cause of the breach (normally roots) and then prepare for the drain patch relining.
The drain patches used are fabric segments which are impregnated with epoxy resin. These are then manoeuvred into the drain or sewer on a pipe packer. Once the damaged section is reached, the pressure is set so the packer calibrates to the inside of the pipe. The patch is held in place until the resin cures properly. The inflation packer is then deflated and withdrawn. The patch is left in place forming a smooth and strong bond with the existing pipe, thus providing a full structural repair.
With drain patch repairs there is no need to reline long lengths of drainage in order to reach one specific defect. Faults can be repaired without the need to reopen junctions using robotic cutting or excavating to access the pipework. Due to the nature of this work, we can ensure that any defect that has been identified early can be repaired straight away. This will alleviate the chances of collapse or major disruption to the drainage flow, including infiltration.
Drain patch repairs are a low cost solution ensuring that expensive groundwork’s can be avoided.
The patching process conforms to Ofwat regulations, as well as being WRC and local authority approved.
Our engineers have years of experience within the drainage industry and are able to survey, repair and replace all forms of drainage systems.
We can assist with ISO14001 accreditation and provide ISO14001 drainage surveys and CAD drawings to support data requirement and current legislation.
