CCTV Drain Survey

Most problems with drainage systems occur below ground, making them difficult to diagnose and solve efficiently. CCTV drain surveys are a brilliant alternative to digging up the groundwork, which can be costly and inconvenient. Using winches and cables, we are able to lower our CCTV equipment into your pipework, and from there we will be able to pinpoint the exact issue and offer you our recommended solution. And the best part? Our CCTV surveys are free.

Juggling multiple suppliers is stressful, but with us, keep it all in one place. From purchase to installation, we have you covered.

Drain Lining

Using specially formulated resins, we are able to coat pipework from the inside, providing long-lasting protection to the whole drainage system. Installing drain lining can also prevent costly repairs in the future – small cracks and damage to pipework ordinarily call for repair or replacement, but with drain lining, depending on the severity of the problem, pipes can be left alone or fixed with spit patches. Overall, a less invasive and less costly solution in the long run.

Irrigation Systems

Though we specialise in drainage, we can also advise on efficient irrigation systems. Large-scale set-ups are often reserved for agricultural purposes, but we have plenty of customers with large outdoor areas they want to maintain. With our help, certain wastewater channels can be redirected and repurposed for irrigation purposes. Perfect for reducing water wastage and making your home eco-friendly, whilst keeping your water bill low.

Septic Tank Repair, Replacement & Advice

Does your septic tank comply with Environmental Agency law? If not, you could be facing fines of up to Β£150,000. There are several factors that contribute to a fully regulated septic tank, including no damage or foul water leaks, proper registration, adequate distance from hard-standing areas, etc. We are able to help you make sense of all the jargon and make sure your septic tank is up to industry standards. Book an inspection with us and we can get to work finding solutions.

Saniflo Toilet Repairs and Servicing

Saniflo toilets are often called β€˜up flush’ toilets, as they work by pumping waste upwards as opposed to conventional toilets that do the opposite. Saniflo toilets are ideal for extensions or if you would like an extra toilet slotted into an unconventional area, like under the stairs. At BlockBusters, our engineers are fully trained to provide repairs, replacements, and servicing on all Saniflo toilets – at the best possible price.

Sewer Cleaning 

Sewer systems are designed to work and go unnoticed, but they still require regular attention. Keeping sewage lines clean is vital to maintaining steady flow and preventing future blockages. From small systems to larger more complex set-ups, our engineers are experienced and knowledgeable at assessing problems and tackling them. We offer cleaning services every 6 months, utilising jet washes and vacuum pumping to keep pipes clear and clean and prevent long-term build-up and damage.

Sewer Repair

Sewage systems are under constant pressure, so even with careful maintenance, damage can occur after long-term use. Unlike some other plumbing issues, sewage poses a threat to your health when not dealt with correctly. So, when something does, unfortunately, go wrong with a sewage system, we are on standby to analyse the situation and provide a tailored solution before things get any worse.

Water Leak Detection and Leaking Pipe Repair

Large leaks can cause lasting water damage very quickly and small leaks can go unnoticed until the damage and damp rot they cause becomes difficult to remedy. Our experts are trained to detect the source of a leak and repair it in a timely manner – oftentimes without any need to dig up groundwork or replace whole sections of pipework.

Water Main Repairs

A faulty water main will bring any property, residential or commercial, to a total standstill. Whether there is a small leak or a burst pipe, we treat all water main issues as emergencies. Not only can our expert engineers fix the problem and provide long-term care to your mains system, but our team can also help you to claim back any damages caused by the issue.

Soakaways Cleaning 

Soakaways are holes filled with rubble that work like gabions, their purpose is to slow the flow of run-off water and gradually feed it back into the ground. Naturally, these holes can, over time, become clogged with excess debris and leaves, which plug the hole and cause flooding. Using high-pressure water jets, we are able to clear most blockages in no time at all. However, some soakaways can become so clogged that they may never work the same way again. But no need to worry – in this case, we can excavate a new soakaway for you or find a way to re-excavate the existing one.

Blocked Drains

When drains become blocked, problems can escalate quite quickly. It may be tempting to turn to DIY fixes, but these can only act as temporary solutions, especially for more serious blockages. Without professional help, blockages are only ever partly cleared, leaving excess debris around hard-to-reach corners in the pipework – meaning, over time, more debris will catch the excess and another blockage will build up. At BlockBusters, we have decades of experience unclogging drains. It’s in our name for a reason. By harnessing CCTV equipment to locate the source of a clog and then high-pressure water jets to remove it, we can keep drains healthy and prevent future build-ups.
