Tracing & Excavation for Drain Repairs

Drain Repairs:

Repairs to below ground drainage is a specialist job. Our trained technicians can repair or replace all damaged drains. In circumstances where the damage to your drainage system is too severe to be able to repair it by means of relining, we can use the necessary equipment to access to the drain underground.

With minimal disruption, our highly trained and experienced drain technicians will excavate the area around the drain, repair or replace the drain and refill the area to a high standard.

We provide professional drain repair services throughout the Dublin M50 area, from Ballbriggan to Bray and everywhere inbetween. Dublin central west to Edenderry. From Lucan to Dunboyne. We have engineers available for any drainage issue you may have.

Damaged/Cracked Pipes

Most of the time, it is possible to unblock drains, clear out the mess, and then get everything running smoothly again. However, in some cases, the blockage may be caused by a damaged drain, or have caused damage to a drain itself. When a drain is or becomes damaged, it will need to be professionally repaired. Cracked pipes are a serious issue that can wreak havoc on plumbing systems.

At the very least, damaged or broken pipes can attract pests and rodents and cause a foul smell. While in worst cases, a cracked drain or pipe lets water seep into the surrounding soil, which can pollute the rest of your water supply, and even cause structural damage or subsidence.

If you’re not sure if you have a broken drain, there are a few warning signs you can look out for, such as bad smells, cracks in your walls, or wet patches. Although on the whole, a broken drain is quite difficult to spot, so if you’re at all unsure whether a pipe may be damaged or broken, it is always best to call in the experts.

There are several causes of fractured pipe work and broken drains, all of which require prompt repair. These include:

  • Root incursion in the drain. The roots of a plant will always grow towards the nearest and most accessible water source, and can cause huge damage to pipework.
  • Bad connections. If there are bad connections between your pipes, this will make blockages more likely, and eventually lead to leaks and breakages.

    How to fix a drain depends on the type and extent of the damage caused.

    Occasionally, when all other options have been discounted, a full excavation and drain replacement will be necessary.

    However, there are plenty of newer, ‘no-dig’ options available that we can use in most cases to fix your drain quickly and easily. If there are bad connections in the pipeline which are causing blockages or letting waste water drain into the ground, we can carry out a patch repair. A patch repair is a great, non-intrusive way to fix a broken drain or pipe. For this method, we use a resin saturated, fibreglass mat of 300mm-500mm in length, which is pressed onto the problem area in the pipe. The mat is then inflated to fit the shape of the pipe, filling in any holes or cracks. This method is particularly good because it requires minimal excavation and causes very little damage or inconvenience to you.
