Blockages are one of the most common drainage issues. This could stem from the usual build-up of scum and soap to foreign objects blocking the drainage pipes.
Gaps in pipes
Gaps in pipes are usually caused by ground movement or movement within a property. Gaps in pipes could cause both fresh water and wastewater leaking into surrounding areas. This could have long term server impacts on a property if not resolved early.
Cracks in pipes
Cracks and broken pipes are similar to gaps in piping. Cracks and breakages in pipes usually occur from ages and wear and tear. These could be tricky to locate and most likely found underground or ceilings and walls. CCTV drain cameras are the best way to locate leaks which aren’t easily located.
You should never underestimate the strength of roots. They are always growing and seeking nutrients. Pipes are full of what roots are looking for. They can pierce through pipes easily over time. Roots can continue growing in the pipes leading to blocked piping. Jets can remove younger roots.
