Drain Excavations in Ramsgate

Drain Lining & Much More | When Do We Excavate?

When you realise you have a drainage issue at your Ramsgate property, it’s understandable to fear the worst. While many problems we handle involve no-dig solutions – such as drain lining, drain descaling and tree root removal – some of the more extreme require drain excavations. Because excavating involves digging, it comes with a longer duration, a higher cost and more disruption. What’s more, you even face the prospect of new drain installations when it’s all over with.

Sometimes, however, excavating is the only way to undertake work on your system effectively. But you can rest assured, BP Drains Ltd only ever performs excavation work as a last resort for the most serious drainage issues.

When are Drain Excavations Needed?

The path to potential excavations starts when we arrive at your property in Ramsgate to survey your drainage system. Of course, situations vary. But we will likely use CCTV equipment to explore your pipework in order to uncover the problem.

In many cases, if the issue is relatively minor, we perform no-dig operations. Common solutions include drain descaling and tree root removal to clear blockage hazards as well as drain lining to repair leaks in pipes.

Unlike installing new drain installations, be it part of a system or an entirely new one, no-dig services benefit everyone. They’re clean, tidy, and fast. They don’t disturb surfaces and we keep overall disruption to an absolute minimum.

In a few circumstances, though, we encounter problems that require drain excavations. When this happens, you can be sure that there simply isn’t another solution.

For example, if large sections of your drain have collapsed, we can’t carry out drain lining or similar repairs. Our Ramsgate-based team needs to get down to system level and work manually.

Likewise, if you don’t perform tree root removal soon enough, you may also face drain excavations. If the roots that penetrate your pipes grow, they can crack or dislodge them. We simply can’t fix this from the surface.

This is also why regular maintenance checks – including drain descaling to avoid blocks – are so vital.

Earth subsidence is another unfortunate scenario that could play out at your Ramsgate premises. While tree roots are sometimes involved in this process, they are by no means the only cause. There are numerous reasons behind subsidence, but whichever one you have the misfortune of experiencing, your drainage system will likely disconnect in places.

Needless to say, such damage requires excavations too. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may need new drain installations too.
