Cracked drains are a serious problem that may result in property damage, malodour, pollution of soil and groundwater as well as the spread of diseases.
Causes of cracked pipes include the incursion of roots, underground movement and corrosion in the case of metal pipes. Common signs of cracked drains include foul smells, localised wet patches and sinkholes as well as cracked walls and floors. The signs of cracked drains are not always apparent to property owners and sometimes the condition may only be confirmed through professional inspection by a qualified plumber.
How the professionals can help
If it is suspected that a drain is cracked, the best course of action is to call on the services of a professional drainage company, such as READY STEADY JET LTD, to conduct a thorough CCTV INSPECTION of the pipes. Should it be found that the drain is cracked, it is then necessary to decide on what measures should be taken to resolve the problem depending on the seriousness and extent of damage.
On some occasions, the best option is to repair the drain using trenchless technologies such as patch repairs, which are cheaper, less time consuming and cause less destruction, while other instances will necessitate full excavation and even drain replacement.

Full excavation and drain replacement
On some occasions, the severity and extent of drainpipe cracking is so great that no-trench rehabilitation technologies are incapable of remedying the problem. In those circumstances where pipes can not be repaired the only remaining option is to excavate the site in full and to replace the damaged pipe.
Full excavation and pipe replacement, which is more expensive and time-consuming than modern trenchless methods, as well as being more destructive to the site, is worth the temporary inconvenience and cost in the face of the disastrous consequences of leaking drains.
