Soakaway Replacement and Repairs in Ferndown

Soakaways are robust drainage systems specifically designed to drive excess water away from your property. They can help to prevent a variety of drainage problems, such as waterlogging, standard water and flooding.

Unfortunately, soakaways themselves are not immune from developing faults. A faulty soakaway can lead to drainage concerns that will escalate if left unchecked. If you are based in the Ferndown area and need assistance with your soakaway system, we are here for you.

We have been providing reliable soakaway repair and replacement services to residents and business owners in Ferndown for more than 25 years. As such, our soakaway repair engineers are well placed to resolve virtually any soakaway problem.

In case you were wondering how soakaways work and how they can develop problems, here’s a quick explainer:

In the very simplest terms, a soakaway is a series of holes dug into the ground and covered with turf. Each of the holes is filled with rubble and coarse stone. The tiny pockets within each hole that are free from soil or earth allow water to flow away from your property.

However, soakaways may require repair or replacement when they develop issues such as blockages, damages from overgrowing stems and branches and wear and tear from long-term use. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, your next step should be to call one of the leading soakaway specialists in Ferndown. 

Soakaway blockages are often caused by leaves, silt and other garden debris flowing into them. Our soakaway engineers are often able to clear such blockages and remove any buildup using a pressure washer. 

However, in some cases, if the damage or blockage is too severe, this is not possible and it may be necessary to have your soakaway replaced outright. Our engineers can excavate a brand new soakaway (or re-excavate the current one, after tracing it). This will ensure that water is flowing away from your property, helping to protect it from the risk of flooding.

If you are based in the Ferndown area and having trouble with your soakaway system, one call to Canford Drains is all it takes. Get in touch for a free quote.

Blocked drains can be more than a nuisance. If left, sewage could back up and waste water could flood your property causing major damage to your household and possessions.

When unblocking clogged up drains and blocked toilets in Ferndown, we use industry-specific tools and equipment to effectively breakdown, remove and clear the obstruction so that your drains can flow freely once again.

Drains can become blocked from tree root ingress, unsuitable materials being emptied into the pipework (oils, grease, concrete) and non-degradable items, such as baby wipes, being flushed down the toilet. However, sometimes structural damage to a pipe can cause misalignment. This type of obstruction requires specialist attention in order for the drains to function properly. A drain survey will be conducted to highlight the damage before drain repairs can be undertaken to fix the faults.

    CCTV Drain Surveys in Ferndown

    When a blockage occurs, it can be down to a number of things. When jetting and rodding doesn’t effectively clear a blockage, it could mean that there is damage or a fault somewhere in the pipework; a drain liner could have collapsed, pipework could be broken or roots could have invaded the system. In these instances, our drainage engineer will need to investigate further by inserting a camera probe into the pipe. This is known as a drain survey.

    At Canford Drains, we can deliver CCTV drain surveys in Ferndown for domestic, commercial and industrial customers who require their drainage to be investigated. With our drain survey technology, we can pinpoint the source of the problem and provide the remedial work to fix it, so that your drainage can work efficiently once more.

    CCTV drain surveys are non-invasive and allow us to accurately locate any blockages, without risking damage to your drainage system, or any other part of your property. This can save our customers in Ferndown considerable time and money.

    Here at Canford Drains, it’s our aim to make the drain repair process as hassle-free as we can. Carrying out drain surveys with our state-of-the-art equipment, allows us to pinpoint the source of blockages with a minimum of fuss. We have reliably delivered drain surveys for many residents and business owners in Ferndown and further afield.

    Darren, the operative was so helpful. He inspired confidence and fixed the problem which he diagnosed as being a build up of grease and 20% scaling. He invited us to watch the screen so we could see exactly the true image of the drains. He was informative and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for better service.
