Excavation to Repair Collapsed or Broken Drains

At London Drainage Facilities we can use CCTV surveys to inspect your drainage system and identify if a collapsed or broken drain is the cause of blocked drains or any other plumbing issues you may be experiencing. This allows us to directly identify where the issue is and excavate in the appropriate place to provide minimal disruption.

This means we can excavate down directly onto the pipework and cut away the damaged sections, connecting the new replacement installation onto the existing drainage system. This is a specialist job and should be done by drainage specialists such as ourselves.

Once we are made aware of what and where the issue is, we can assess the drainage situation, identify the problem and ensure we carry out the most appropriate action in the shortest time, minimising disruption.

What is drain excavation?

Drain excavation is usually used as a last resort where pipework is damaged beyond repair and needs an entire section replacing. This will usually have been identified via a CCTV survey, allowing us to directly pinpoint the problem. We then dig directly above the identified issue either manually or with machinery creating a hole or trench so that the old pipe can be removed and replaced with the new pipework and attached to the existing system. Because of the care and attention this process needs to avoid further damage, it is important a drainage specialist completes this work.

Drain excavation is usually required when all other avenues have been exhausted and is ideally avoided unless necessary. Drain excavation is usually an option when there is damage to the pipe junction or drainpipe connections, the drainpipes have collapsed, cracked or have come misaligned, relining isn’t working, the earth surrounding the pipework has subsided or tree root intrusion into the pipework.

These issues will usually have been identified by a CCTV survey which will show what the issue is and give technicians the best idea of how to fix the problem. It also allows them to excavate directly over the problem area to minimise disruption.

Excavation works in Kent and throughout the south east can vary greatly, the cost will depend on factors such as the duration of the work, the equipment required, how much disturbance there will be to the surrounding area and the materials needed.
