Most property owners will experience a problem with their watermains at some point, and in many cases a professional is needed to carry out repairs. We specialise in watermain installation and repair and are proud to provide watermain repairs to our customers throughout the UK. Here are some of the things you need to know about our watermain repair services and what you need to do if there’s a problem with your watermains.
Why Watermains Need Repairing
Your water main is the main pipe bringing water into your home, so if it is damaged in some way, getting it repaired is very important. A break or crack in your water main will cause water to flow out of the pipe and eventually reach surface level, whether that be on the street, in the basement of your home, or flooding your front lawn. A break in your water main can lead to contaminated water in the home, so it is crucial to have a broken water main professionally repaired.
The Water Main Repair Service We Provide
We can carry out a comprehensive water mains repair service for our customers throughout the UK and are proud to provide fast response times to all calls. Our team of water main specialists can usually locate leaks in your water mains by observing some common tell-tale signs, such as:
- Boggy ground or depressions
- Water running above the surface of your property
- Dropping water pressure throughout your home
- A loud rumbling sound in your plumbing system
- Water present in your basement
Once our water main specialists have located the problem, they will then evacuate the area to expose the water main so repair work can commence.
How to Detect Leaks in Your Watermains
Many leaks in the water main can go completely unnoticed and, as a result, can cause extensive and often expensive structural damage to your home. Extensive water damage can include problems such as mould, mildew, damage to flooring and walls, and a significant increase in your water bills.
However, unfortunately, watermain leaks are often in hard to reach places, such as under your lawn. Therefore, detecting a leak can be difficult. Leak detection is a specialised skill and our team has the experience and technology needed to accurately search out any leaks in your plumbing, saving you money and avoiding expensive damage to your property.
We Use Moling for Watermain Repairs
Our moling equipment allows us to divert an existing water without the need for extensive excavation. This is hugely beneficial for many of our customers as it ensures their watermains can be easily repaired without their gardens having to be dug up completely.
A mole is a very clever piece of machinery that works by moling into the ground via a launch pit and digging through the ground for up to 25 metres. Excavation by moling is one of the most effective excavation methods and is especially useful when installing a main beneath your home or newly laid driveway.
Specialised Corallater Technology for Repairs
In cases where the normal signs of watermain problems are not clearly visible, we use a specialised corallater to repair your watermain. The corallater works to repair your watermain by using sonar signals. The sonar signals are passed through the watermain and work by calculating where the damage is. The distance and where the damage is within the watermain is made clear when the signal is interrupted. The location of the interruption lets our watermain specialists know whereabouts the leak is so that a repair can be easily carried out without the need for extensive evacuation.
Not only does the corallater help our team save time on watermain repair, but it also avoids any unnecessary disruption or extra costs. The corallater avoids the need for any exploratory digs along the mains in an attempt to establish the location of any cracks or leaks.
If You Require a Watermain Installation
We can repair any type of watermain and we can also carry out new watermain installation, should you require a new supply. If you’re unsure whether you need a new watermain, we can arrange for one of our specialists to visit your site and provide you with a quotation to carry out work for a new watermain installation. Whether we install your new watermain by means of excavation or moling, our team of specialists are available to help find the most cost-effective solution for you.
