Polyteck’s Leading Drainage Services
Here at Polyteck we use the state of the art stack coring machines such as Spartan 300 and 100 machines. This allows us to clear and clean any problem stacks.
CCTV Drainage Surveys
However complex your drainage system our surveyors provide the most comprehensive CCTV Drainage Integrity Survey Service available. Historically this service has been carried out by specialist drainage companies and it has been necessary for architects/engineers/developers to treat this work as a separate contract.
It is now possible for us to not only provide a fixed price quotation for CCTV drainage survey contracts, but also an all-in price for CCTV integrity survey/underground services trace/ground penetrating radar and topographical survey.
We use remotely-controlled, specialist camera systems and software to carry out a CCTV drains survey. These drain inspection cameras relay images back to our system, so that a technician can assess the structural condition and integrity of the drain or sewer.
A flexible liner soaked with resin is pushed through the drain, whilst an air bag is also pushed through to mould the resin to the pipe. The liner is heated and once cooled will mould exactly to the sides of the original pipe.
Once the air bag is removed, it leaves behind a smooth new pipe inside the original.
When it comes to blocked or troublesome drains, Polyteck drainage service is all you need to know — wherever you are in London and the surrounding areas.
Whether it’s cleaning, clearing and unblocking drains; jetting or using a vacuum; drain repairs, relining or general drainage advice, you will find the same high standards across the board.
For emergencies, our 24-hour call out service means a fast solution to blocked drains for domestic and commercial clients. And for those of you who need a planned maintenance programme, with regular drainage checks, you’ll find Polyteck the perfect drainage partner.
One of the most common techniques is to use a mechanical auger. The mechanical method of root removal is simple, a powered sewer auger is sent down a sewer line with a rotating spiral head. The head has teeth on it much like a reciprocating saw blade. The rotating action cuts the roots, but many remain within the sewer line.
This clears the roots from the sewer line, but doesn’t solve the problem — the roots will grow back. “You’ve simply removed the symptom” – and that root that’s now cut off or snapped off or chewed off will immediately start to send out some fine tendrils, which will start the whole process again.
However, use of a resin liner is the solution, using this methodology its possible to completely stop the root system repenetrating and thus providing protection for the long term.
Before deciding on the best renovation solution for a given drain or sewer, our CCTV engineers use sophisticated, remotely-controlled camera units to survey the pipe. This is an integral part of the sewer renovation service, and allows us to prepare a report detailing the nature of the problem, and the remedial action we recommend to effect full sewer rehabilitation.
In larger diameter pipes, we may carry out man-entry surveys with personnel trained in confined space working.
Renovation By Relining
Wherever possible, our sewer renovation specialists use relining also known as ‘no-dig’ or ‘trenchless’ technology — to rehabilitate sewers and drains ranging from 100mm to 300mm in diameter.
For localised repairs to specific sections of drain, we may use a technique known as patching which is suitable for pipes with diameters from 100mm up to 1250mm
Pump Station Rehabilitation
Pumping stations are critical components in sewage and surface water systems, and their failure can cause catastrophic and costly damage to homes and businesses alike. That’s why it’s absolutely essential to keep pumping stations in full working condition by scheduling regular, expert maintenance and inspection.
Here at Polyteck drainage services we understand how important pumping station maintenance is, and we possess the experience and expertise required to deal with the particular challenges posed by working in such dangerous and undesirable environments.
