When a blockage causes problems on your premises you will want it resolved quickly and efficiently. Inten offer 2 solutions for blocked drain clearing:
A Reactive Call Out Service
This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and our aim is to be on site within 4 hours of an emergency call out.
In 90% of cases our engineers will remove the blockage in less than an hour. If this is not possible we can carry out a CCTV survey to establish the cause of the problem and advise on the next course of action.
Planned Preventative Maintenance
A pre-planned preventative maintenance programme helps to avoid blockages that can result in damage to property and stock, the potential health risk from flooding, the obvious inconvenience and, of course, out-of-budget expenditure.
We work with you to put together a tailor made schedule to be carried out once or twice a year, or as often as you required. Our engineers will inspect and clean your drainage system at a time to suit you, ensuring minimum inconvenience, and ultimately avoiding the problems associated with reduced flow and blockages.
Methods of Unblocking
Our engineers use this method mainly to unblock smaller bore pipes such as toilets and sinks rather than drains. A flexible rod is pushed into the pipework and removes blockages by careful, manual force.
Where necessary, a variety of attachments are fitted onto the end of the rod to either cut or scrape away debris. It is ideal for removing hard debris such as uric acid and limescale, roots, twigs, compacted leaves and other foreign objects.
If rodding does not work, or for larger scale blockages, our engineers use our specialist jetting machines, with powerful 4000 psi units where the force of water breaks up and wash away any drain obstruction.
These powerful jetting machines are used to carry out planned maintenance of drains, thoroughly cleaning and dislodging any accumulated material and washing it away. Carried out regularly, this greatly reduces the chance of a blockage, and allows us to identify potential problems in time to put them right.
In the unlikely event that the drain remains blocked, we carry out a CCTV survey to establish the cause of the problem and carry out the appropriate remedial action. Click here to see more about our CCTV surveys.
