Regularly Maintain your Businesses Drainage System

Many customers ask us how often they should maintain their drainage system. Well, the answer is broad depending on the of your business and the use of your drainage system. For example, restaurants, pubs and factories dealing in production of food will have deposits of fat and high volumes of use to their drains. But in a domestic home, it will create fewer demands on the drainage system.

As a good preventive measure, your drainage systems should be maintained and cleaned at least annually for those medium-sized companies that do not have a high impact on their drainage system. For those companies that do this may be as frequent as every 6 weeks.

Maintaining your drainage system can help prevent devastating damage to your company and of course save the embarrassment of sewage water coming into your property, especially within the food industry. The last thing you would want is to be shopping in your local supermarket and be presented with sewage down the fresh fruit aisle.

How to maintain your businesses drainage system?

Preventing a fire always trumps putting one out. The same is true for drain cleaning. Keeping your drains clear of trouble prevents stoppage of business operations, which ultimately saves you time and money. Additionally, you avoid any negative complaints that customers may pass on. In our age of social media, such negative publicity could go viral and harm your brand.

Taking good care of your wastewater system with sewer and drain management and maintenance is the best way to avoid emergency drainage emergencies in the future.

You should have all that’s needed to clean the drains regularly of debris and silt, and checked for potential problems. Remember that, if left, debris and silt builds up and will reduce the flow capacity of the pipe. In time, it can become completely blocked, resulting in foul and surface water backing up, even FL High-pressure water jetting once or twice a year helps to avoid blockages in surface water drains and culverts. Areas that are identified as particularly problematic or prone to blockages — perhaps due to poor fall, surrounding geography or the build-up of fat, oil and grease (FOG) may be recommended for more regular maintenance.

Frequent monitoring and maintenance of internal and external drainage assets reduces the chance of expensive emergency repairs in the future. Flushing the system through regularly gets rid of debris build-up to lessen the chance of blockages, whilst optimizing the flow rate of the drains and sewers. Monitor and maintain your drains and sewers, just as you would a building and land. That way, you know they will be in good working order when they need to be.

Have the problem diagnosed through the use of a CCTV inspection to ensure you are getting the proper diagnosis for the problem.

If tree roots are the issue, using a high powered jetter to take care of the problem. The jetter head spirals headwater to cut through the tree roots removing the obstruction. However, this will only take care of the existing problem because the roots will grow back. There are times when the pipes are too badly damaged by the roots and will have to be repaired/replaced.

If your problem is a case of cracked, collapsed or bellied pipes, the assessment of the area would need to be made. After the assessment via CCTV surveying, the area that has been identified as the damaged site needs to be accurately planned out, enabling this area to be dug up for the pipe/s to be repaired by relining to re-enforce or to be replaced.

Drainage systems are designed to carry waste and surface water away from your building and into the main council line. It is therefore very important to keep the pipes clean, clear and free flowing. Pipelines can easily be affected by litter, silt, limescale, roots and anything else that ends up down the drain. Unfortunately, you cannot see what is on the inside of your pipes and may be blissfully unaware that there are problems on the horizon. If the main pipelines do become blocked this will affect other areas of your drainage system and you may experience this as flooding, unexplained leaks or blockages in your toilets and sinks.
