Bad Smells In House & Drains
If you have bad smells in your house or drains, we can investigate this for you and using our 60 years combined experience trace the source of the problem for you.
What Causes The Bad Smells
There are lots of different causes, most of which are due too blocked drains and faulty pipe work installations. Because we are both plumbers as well as drainage engineer’s we can spot badly installed/fitted pipe work quickly.
Other Causes Of Smelly Drains
On some property’s we have visited and inspected the drains and found nothing wrong with the pipe work or drains, and after even more time investigating found dead birds and rats that were decaying and giving of smell. We have also had the smells under floors that were not practical/ cost effective to lift up and find decaying animal upon which we have advised customer to give it time in two weeks to see if it was a dead animal and decaying smells should have worn off if it was a dead animal and this has been proven right lots of times.
With blocked sinks in Maidstone ME14 we use three main tools to unblock pipes which are No1 sink plunger which has a lot of suction to help force the blockage out. No 2 is electric eel / sani snake the electric eel is an electric drill with a big housing / drum which contains a long wire coil of 25 meters which can feed through pipes and the drill can be spun while the wire coil is in the pipe until it reaches the blockage and it will also help clean the blocked pipe in the process. No 3 is a air ram / kinetic ram this is basically a vessel with a trigger, which can be pumped up by hand with compressed air and using various attachments it can then fire compressed air very quickly into the plug hole or pipes to force the blockage out, and unblock your blocked sink.
Rats In Drains
Rats in your drains or house, we have come across customers with rats inside their drains and property / house. And we have advised them on what action to take to stop the rats from getting into their house / property.
How To Stop Rats Getting Into The house
Rats can use your drains like there own personal highway if there are faults in your drain to allow them to do so, as we have been clearing blocked drains for many years now we have come across lots of different customers with rat problems and here below are the three most common problems we come across.
A Interceptor Trap is u bend trap before your drain enters the main sewer, which is most common to be at the end of your drive in the front of your property in the manhole but it can also run towards the back of your property. The interceptor has two holes, one for the waste water to go into the u bend and the higher positioned hole is a rodding access point, which should have a plug / cap in hole which can be removed rodding, but if missing allows rats full access to your drains as they don’t like going through u bend with water in it but don’t mind using access point if not capped.
Vent / Air Intake for a MANHOLE
The vent / air intake for a manhole does what it say’s on the tin and is normally a metal box close to the manhole at ground level and is attached to a pipe underground that leads back to the manhole, it’s purpose is to stop the build up of smells /gases and allows air into the manhole chamber and if this is faulty / broken this can allow rats access. In some address’s we go to the metal box has been taken of and the pipe broken below ground for cosmetic reasons by the house owner, so if you ever come across a four inch pipe in your garden near a manhole you can bet that’s what it is.
Broken drains will also give rats access and also cause blocked drains on a regular basis.
If You Have A Rat Problem We Would Recommend A Drain C.C.TV Survey Inspection
We would recommend a drain c.c.tv survey Inspection If you have rat problems , so that we can check to see if there are any faults in your drain. Upon which if any faults are found, we can advise you on the best method to repair the fault / faults.
C.C.TV Drain Survey Or Sewer Survey
We can provide you with a c.c.tv drain / sewer survey using one of the best drain camera’s on the market, which is a self levelling drain camera with led lights which gives us a perfect picture, which is shown to us and you if you wish to watch and shows on our monitor screen while the c.c.tv drain sewer survey is being carried out.
A Clear Drain Survey Inspection Picture
With a clear drain survey picture we can inspect your drains for structural soundness and there integrity as catching small cracks and out of line joint before they get larger is key. A clear picture is very important to insure a good inspection of your drains is carried out and any fine faults are spotted , as both my self ( Chris ) and Robert have been carrying out drain surveys for many years we would like to think we have very well trained eye’s.
Recording C.C.TV Drain & Sewer Surveys
We can record your drain survey onto a memory stick which you can then view directly on your computer, or we can use the memory stick and download your survey onto our computer and either email it to you or record it onto a dvd and send it to you.
When it comes to blocked drains in Maidstone both myself ( Chris ) and Robert are very well experienced drain unblockers and have been unblocking drains for over 25 years for me and 35 years for Robert . In this time we have done everything from drain clearing to drain installing and a lot more.
Fixed price’s for unblocking a blocked toilet, we have unblocked lots of toilets over the years and we have both got our methods of clearing then down to a fine art. Using all the drain clearance tools that we have built up over the years, we have cleared / unblocked lots of toilets over the years that other company’s have said they could not do without taking the toilet completely out which involved more costs and then we have been called and unblocked the toilet without taking the toilet out. There is a lot of job satisfaction in that and pride.
We clear blocked shower waste pipes using the same methods as described in more detail higher up the page for blocked sinks using three main tools which are. 1 Plunger 2 Electric Eel /Sani Snake 3 Air Ram / Kinectic Ram
Drain Clearing Clearance
We carry out drain clearing clearance in Maidstone, we have a high pressure water jetting unit / machine mounted on the rear of our van, which can unblock your drains and carry out a very good drain clearing clearance using the power of water. Our high pressure water jetting unit is basically a heavy duty water pump which forces water through an extra strong / enforced hose which has a metal nozzle attached to the end of the hose the nozzle has fine holes, which blast fine water at pressure to clear the blocked drains and clean them also.
We carry out drain repairs using all the correct jointing methods and materials, and as mentioned previously we have many years of experience of carrying out drain repairs and installations.
Drain lining is a no dig repair method for faulty drains, which can be a very cost effective as no digging require which saves time and money, as well as no disruption to the ground. It is the method of installing a pipe within a pipe and is like a heart surgeon installing a stent into a patient to open up a vessel and keep it reinforced.
The Process In Short For Drain Lining
If you can picture a fireman’s hose the roll out type that is flat until the water goes through it, that is very similar the the liner apart from the liner has a felt wall inside. Two chemicals are mixed up by the drainage engineer which starts a chemical process and this is poured into the liner hose and the felt impregnated, once all the felt is impregnated the access liquid is drained out and the liner is pushed through the drain into position. Another hose which is called an inner liner is filled with air from a compressor which blows up inside the main liner and stays inflated until resin has cured and the the inner liner is removed, and it does not stick to resin. The inner liner works on a the same sort of process as you see when sausage is filled, as it fills with air it works its way through the liner if that makes sense.
