Sometimes a drainage problem is so severe that it really isn’t possible to fix it without digging down to it. The drain might be old and in poor condition, with multiple leaks, or it might have collapsed altogether. If age isn't the issue, it could have been damaged by external forces such as tree roots or subsidence
Drain excavation is a complex task and a last resort, it involves digging a hole or trench to the drainage in need of attention, with the risk of damaging anything above the problem area.
ABS tries to minimise disruption to our clients’ sites, so we’ll do everything we can to avoid a full excavation. However, in some cases, we will not be able to address the drainage problem using no-dig methods. In these instances we will need to physically excavate the area to identify the problem and carry out the work needed to fix the issue. This may or may not include replacing pipework.
Drain excavations are always considered a last resort by our team, but if this type of procedure is necessary, you can rest assured that our engineers are highly trained and experienced in all of the relevant healthy and safety and operational legislation.
