Efficient Solutions for Sewer Repair

Sewer failures are one of the worst nightmare scenarios for residents, businesses, workers and councils. When a sewer fails it cause all drains in a local area to be affected and will lead to flooding. When we are informed of a sewer breakdown, we drop any non-essential personnel from other on-going projects and send them to the area of a suspected breakdown. In some places, a broken sewer can cause millions of pounds of damage to property and economy so must be repaired as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, SR6

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 Repair In The North East

The first thing we would do when we get on site is perform a drainage camera survey. For this we will send specialist imaging equipment into the sewer, at times this could be CCTV remote controlled from a van, or surveying equipment above ground to look for any outside damage to the pipework. In many cases, this would require causing road traffic to divert so that we can access manholes and access points in the road. Once we have found the source of the problem, we will diagnose it completely and investigate any further issues that could be caused by it.

We will then start to undertake repairs. This could be a range of different activities. If the cause of the breakage is only something such as a crack, then we can repair this by performing a sewer relining. In order to do this we first, clean the sewer with high powered water jets to clear any debris. Then we use the CCTV to make sure we have a record of all the junctions and connections to drains. Next we use a tool that places a liner resin onto the walls of the pipe in order to create new “walls”.  After this has dried and secured, we cut into this resin where connections and junctions are in order to re-open the pipe to these. Finally, we again send CCTV into the pipe to ensure everything is installed correctly and all junctions are re-opened.

If the problem is more serious, then things get more complicated. As sewerage systems are a civil matter, we have a specific team at Kwikflow that deals with these that are registered with the civil authorities in order to carry out repairs. When there is a more catastrophic failure or collapse, an excavation and sewer line replacement may well be necessary, and in these circumstances we will of course disrupt the local area. In every case of this we will do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum, in terms of noise levels, pollution from our work, disruption to roads and traffic in the area, and speed of works to not cause businesses around the area to shut down for too long. We also have the option of patching if the collapse is only in a small part of the pipeline and is easily accessible through a manhole or access point.
