Efficient Solutions for Sewer Renovation

Sewers do a lot of work for the community every day with some having literally tonnes of water passing through them every hour. Most of us don’t realise that the sewers that are in regular use are also very dated. The sewerage systems in most large cities date back to the Victorian times, when architectural and design techniques were not as thorough as they are now, when building materials were not as advanced for use as present day materials, and when the sheer volume of the wastewater contained in a sewer system was not conceived of during the design stage. As the population of the UK increases more and more, so does the amount of sewer renovation needed across the country.

Initially provided me with an estimated time scale and kept me informed fully as to eta. The operative attended to site and again kept me up-to- date with progress and final outcome. Can’t praise Kwikflow enough. Well done everyone concerned.

Sewer Rehabilitation In The North East

If you have a private sewer that you suspect is old enough to need renovation, or if you suspect that your civic sewer may need it, then get in touch with us today! The first thing we do in all respects is perform a CCTV survey of the drainage and sewer system. This gives us a great idea of how the pipe is doing, and if there are any crumbling parts inside, any debris from possible partial collapses, or anything else that would suggest a renovation is necessary.

In most cases we will investigate and decide that only a re-lining or general cleaning is needed, and that that the disruption and effort of a renovation is not needed. However, in the cases where they will not be enough, and a full sewer repair is not required, we will perform a renovation instead. This way you know we are not going overkill on the pipe, but that we are also doing the most thorough job we can for the situation!

In order to renovate a sewer there are two things we can do. The first is to reline the sewer piping so that the old crumbling brickwork of the sewer piping will no longer be a problem, and structural integrity will be much stronger than it previously was. This process of relining basically creates a second pipe within the pipe, by coating the walls with a resin that dries over it and becomes the new inside walls of the sewer.

The second option is to replace a part of pipework manually. This is usually done in more drastic scenarios than those that a relining would fix. The reason we are much more reluctant to use this fix is because patching requires us to excavate and dig into the ground, which always causes disruption to the local area. In some cases, where the collapse has been caused by tree roots or concrete, then we can use the “top-hat” method, where we only dig to just below the halfway point in the pipe and replace the top half of the pipe, leaving the bottom half completely as is. This way the job takes a little less than half the time it would if it was the whole pipe!
