What is a CCTV drain survey?

When you find yourself with a drainage issue and you have no idea what it could be, call West Wales Waste. With the help of our CCTV drain survey technology, we can solve your problems in no time at all.

A CCTV drain survey consists of using the latest high-tech and waterproof CCTV equipment to identify any blockages or damage your drainage may have. This gives our team a good indication of what and where the issue may be so we can put together a plan and process to fix the issue.

We do this in various circumstances depending on the project in hand. Here are some examples of times where you would expect to see use this equipment:

  • Signs of a leak
  • Suspicion of damage
  • Potential blockage
  • To review repairs

The advantages of having a CCTV drainage survey are endless as you will not only save time, but you will inevitably save money in the long run.

We have a webpage dedicated to the CCTV drainage survey, visit our page here.

bad smell blocked drain

How to know when your drain is blocked

 

How to know when your drain is blocked

A blocked drain can be incredibly frustrating when it happens. Whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen, toilet…you name it, it’s a headache at the best of times.

We advise that it can be less of a problem if you can identify a blockage before it’s at its worst. This can save you valuable time and money.

The key to avoiding a blocked drain is looking for the signs.

Here are some signs to look out for:

Smells:

A foul odour is one of the most obvious signs of your underlying problem. These smells account for many different issues, but it’s most commonly found in the kitchen. Food which flows down the waste pipe can get stuck and begin to rot.

Bad smells are likely to be the first sign of a potential blockage, so it’s essential you act on it quickly.

Sounds:

If you know your home well, it’s likely you’ll know how your pipes usually sound. If you hear a variation within your drainage, its most likely not a good thing.

A blockage can build up air pockets within your pipework, which creates gurgling noise within your drainage.

Sight:

This couldn’t be a more obvious sign your drain is blocked. Slow or non-draining sinks or a backed-up toilet can be obvious signs that you have a blockage. If it is an isolated drain, then the issue Is most likely in the drain pipe connected to the appliance. But If the blockage is consistent in all drains within the system, the issue is likely to be in the sewer drain.

The best way to understand the extent of your issue is seeing if an increase in water volume affects another drain’s water level. For example; you can see that flushing the toilet is making the water in the shower rise. If that’s the case, you have a fully blocked drain and you will require a waste management engineer.

As much as sight is the most obvious of sign, it also means that the pipe is at its final stages of blockage. This being said, all blockages can be fixed.

What’s the next step?

If you have discovered one, two or even all three of the signs above, then it’s recommended that you call a professional as soon as possible.

If you are the homeowner, then you may assume you are responsible for the investigation and possible repair of the blocked drain, but if the system crosses over with a neighbouring property then it’s likely the local water and sewage company is responsible. Once you have identified who is responsible, the process should be crystal clear.

We advise that you speak with a professional before attempting to try and unblock the system yourself. Our friendly engineers are on hand 24 hours a day to make sure you have a open running system in no time at all.

What size is my Sewage Treatment Plant?

What size is my Sewage Treatment Plant?

One of the first questions we tend to ask when we receive an enquiry for a Sewage Treatment Plant empty is “What size is your Sewage Treatment Plant?”.

Although you may assume you should know, we completely understand that it is not the most basic question to answer. You may have recently purchased or rented the property and there may be little knowledge on the waste system.

We normally ask the question though in order to assess the amount of waste we need to collect. This helps us organise the correct equipment and vehicle for the job in hand.

As this information is quite difficult to know off-hand, we have put this blog together to help you find out the size of your Sewage Treatment Plant.

Tip 1 – Documents.

In some circumstances, the property owner will have documentation of the Sewage Treatment Plant installation. This documentation will normally hold the information we need to identify the exact size of the tank itself, or at the least give us a good indication.

Tip 2 – Inspection.

We will normally recommend an inspection of the tank on arrival for the empty. If no information can be found then an inspection is the best way for us to gather the information we need.

In this scenario, we will normally bring what we assume to be correct equipment on the day of inspection so we can get right to work if we feel we are fully prepared to empty the tank there and then. This is the case a good majority of the time.

If you wish to book an empty or inspection, please Click Here and fill out one of our enquiry forms and we will be in touch as soon as we can.

Alternatively, you can call us direct on: (01646)629089
