Soakaway Repair and Replacement in Wareham

Many residents in Wareham rely on soakaways to prevent a range of drainage issues, such as waterlogging, standing water and flooding. Soakaways are durable drainage systems that have been specifically designed to divert water away from properties.

With that said, soakaways do sometimes develop faults that require drainage experts to remedy. Faulty or blocked soakaways can lead to severe drainage problems that will only escalate further if left unchecked. If you are looking for reliable soakaway repairs or replacement services in Wareham, we are here for you.

Here at Canford Drains, we have been providing professional soakaway repairs in the Wareham community for over 25 years! Our time-served engineers have diagnosed and resolved virtually every soakaway issue you could imagine. So, no matter what kind of fault you’re struggling with, the chances are, our engineers can provide the ideal solution quickly and with a minimum of hassle.

If you would like to understand how soakaways work and how some of the most common faults develop, read on! Here’s a quick explainer for your reference:

A soakaway is a series of holes that are dug into the ground, then covered with turf. Each of the holes are filled with coarse stone and rubble. Tiny pockets within each of these holes that are free from earth and soil allow water to drain away from the soakaway.

Soakaways should be repaired (or replaced altogether) whenever they become blocked or damaged. Soakaway blockages are usually caused by various materials washing into them. Stems and branches can also overgrow and block a soakaway’s path.

Sometimes, soakaway problems can be resolved by using a high-powered pressure washer machine. Unfortunately, blockages can sometimes be too severe for this method to work – and when this is the case, the solution is usually to replace the soakaway outright. Our soakaway engineers in Wareham can excavate a new soakaway (or re-excavate your existing one, after tracing it). This will make sure that water is being safely diverted away from your property, as well as safeguarding the area against flooding.

    What Our Customers Say


    "Investigated Smell in Downstairs WC"

    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.

    "Clear blocked drains and retrieve a pigtail that had unscrewed its self on our drain rods."

    We had a problem over the weekend which we temporarily sorted, but in doing so, the pigtail scrapper unscrewed from our drain rods. We did some research and found Canford Drains. Mark turned up - a delightful, polite, chatty, professional. He retrieved the pigtail, then he set about sorting out the drains. Very pleased with outcome. Also with the advice given. Very good, fair price.

    "Highly Recommended"

    Gerry came to clear a blocked drain. He was very professional, courteous, and friendly. He did a fantastic job, and tested all junctions down to the road to ensure that everything is in perfect working order. He explained how the various junctions worked; foul water & surface water drainage. Excellent service. Highly recommended
