Blocked drains are usually a consequence of fat and grease that runs through the drains and as the temperature of the waste cools down the oil and the grease will hold to the surface causing clogging. When the pipes from the sewer are damaged, people often start to dig into the ground to replace the old pipes with new ones. The new advanced technique is to produce pipes with unsticking materials that may cause cracks and usually lead to obstructions. The drain material itself is very complex, filled with polymer resin that activates when waste water goes through it, leaving the pipe clean.
Because the drainage systems are underground the problem may get worse when it comes to leaking problems, which can cause huge damage like cracking and flooding. Over time we must routinely check the sewer systems just to see if the condition down there is satisfying or the inspection chambers are closed off. Visual inspections are easy to do; all you need is to control the water by raising the manhole cover and check if there is any liquid running throughout the plumbing system. When it comes to the old draining systems made years ago which doesn’t include inspection chambers in it, the inspection will be made by the usages of small cameras. Using cameras you can act properly and you would not make a mistake of digging at the wrong location.
The most common problems you will notice during inspections are:
- The leaking pipes,
- Storm water that is trapped in the canal instead of flowing through the system;
- Cracked pipes as a consequence of heavy vehicles over the road;
- Drain blockage from waste.
