Using state of the art high pressure water jetting equipment delivering 4000psi at 55 litres per minute we are confident that we have the right tools for the job. Furthermore, we carry a range of specialist attachments and using the power of water we can remove roots, scale, and detritus from the drainage system.
In the event that there is structural damage we will act quickly and efficiently to repair or replace part or all of the drainage system.
Coastline also offer a regular maintenance schedule as a preventative measure.
From a slow draining bath to collapsed soakaway we have the solution, the experience, and the knowledge to deliver satisfaction.
Damaged drainage systems do not always necessitate the need for expensive excavation and replacement. We have many years of experience using the "Renoline" lining system which is able to place a new pipe into the existing damaged pipe without the need for excavation. The "Renoline" pipe is manufactured from a dense impermeable felt that is mixed with resin and designed and tailored to fit exactly the internal dimension of the damaged pipe.
The benefits of this proven and established method are as follows:
- Eliminates costly excavations and general disruption to the property.
- Capable of repairing and curing leaking and open joints, cracks and other associated pipe failures.
- Suitable for domestic, industrial, commercial and municipal applications.
- Achieves permanent structural repair. Guarantees improved flow.
- Will withstand ground movement far in excess of traditional drainage materials such as saltglaze, clayware, concrete etc.
- Any cross-sectional loss is adequately compensated by increased flow.
- Continual lengths of up to 100 meters can be installed in one length.
- The materials used are extremely strong, abrasive resistant and do not rely on the existing pipe for its structural integrity.
- Very cost effective, up to 75% savings have been achieved by Renoline over conventional methods.
Discovering a problem with your drainage system - whether above or below ground; blocked or broken - can be frustrating and worrying, and will generally always occur at the worst moment. The hardest part is knowing what's caused the problem in the first place! But that's where our expert team come in.
CCTV drain surveys are the ideal way to establish the cause and extent of a drainage problem quickly and visually, or will simply give you the confidence that your drainage system is in good condition.
Our high-tech cameras will identify structural issues, part or complete collapses, root ingress, pipe scale, incorrect installation, blockages, displaced pipe joints, shared usage and much more, including the cause of leaks and emanating foul vapours.
Pre & Post Purchase Drain Surveys
CCTV drain surveys are especially important to have undertaken before buying a property. Unfortunately, many homebuyers that find out their drains are structurally defective once they've moved into the new property and have to pay thousands of pounds to have the drain repaired with no insurance cover. Don't let this happen to you, a pre-purchase drain survey can locate these problems giving you the opportunity to negotiate on the property or pull out - either way at least you are aware!
Notable defects recorded by CCTV surveys:
- Fractured or collapsed drains
- Root ingress
- Structural defects
- Bore lose / scale
- Pipe bellying
- Poor original installation
- Pipe Mapping
Mains water leaks can be very inconvenient and costly. We provide a rapid service to locate and repair or replace leaking pipework from within the boundaries of your property. Using the latest techniques and technology we can provide a cost effective solution.
Old lead pipes in particular have a limited lifespan and can cause health issues and poor flow.
Impact Moling (or Trenchless Technology) is a way of installing new pipes, cables and ducts without the need for continuous trenches to be dug.
Instead pits are excavated at intervals for the mole to be placed. The mole is then entered into the earth on the horizontal face at the bottom of the pit. Destination pits of similar proportions are also dug, and this is where the mole emerges. The mole itself is a steel cylinder, it works as a pneumatic cylinder with pulsed compressed air causing the head of the mole to repeatedly hammer against the soil in front of the mole. The mole displaces the soil creating a bore for the new services to then be pulled through. This reduces the installation time, disturbance and cost.
Benefits of Moling
- Fast & Economical
- Suitable for most soil conditions
- Environmentally & Socially beneficial
- Cleaner than traditional methods
- No need for trenching
- Multiple utility applications
Whether it's just to empty the tank or clean the pipe work Coastline can solve the problem. New tanks and treatment plants supplied and installed.
Cesspits can suffer from blocked or collapsed pipes which results in overflowing sewage. When these have reached the end of their working life they can be replaced with newer and much more efficient systems.
Sewage Treatment Plants are now replacing cesspits and septic tanks as a better long term solution and more environmentally responsible. The sewage treatment plant works through natural processes to break down and neutralise sewage.
Today's treatment plants are compact and very efficient.
There are various types of sewage treatment plants in the UK; all work on the same principle of developing Aerobic Micro-organisms which reduce the polluting load in the effluent, followed by settlement to remove any fine solids from the treated effluent. This treatment principle for waste water is also used at main sewage treatment works for big cities, but on a reduced scale. In most instances the level of treatment enables the effluent to be discharged to a ditch, stream or river, after approval from the Environment Agency (England and Wales), or SEPA (Scotland).
Over the last ten years there have been substantial advances in the design and manufacture of small sewage treatment plants. This together with more stringent regulations has resulted in sewage treatment plants being the preferred option over septic tanks and cesspools for the disposal of waste water for rural locations.
Sewage treatment plants are typically in the form of 'single tank' systems, with most of the tank structure being installed below-ground, with only access covers visible on the surface. The majority of sewage treatment plants operate using an air compressor (air blower). These air compressors are typically within a small housing located remote from the sewage treatment tank.
As leading independent installers of sewage treatment plants for over 15 years Coastline is ideally placed to provide consumers with independent advice regarding the best sewage treatment plant for each particular application.
