Obstacle Removal

As a company we often get asked to assist on projects where an object or obstacle has got into a new or existing drain /sewer system which requires removing.

Common faults that can occur:

  • Concrete ran into a newly installed drain
  • Rebar or earth stake penetrated through pipe wall
  • Faulty pipework or connection at time of laying
  • Tree roots growing through a joint or broken pipe

Due to the nature and location of some drains and sewers, excavation is not always possible or cost effective and more specialist methods are required.

Drain Technology have the ability to remove many different types of obstacles using a variety of different methods depending on the individual circumstance.

  • Concrete – ultra high pressure jetting or concrete cutting using a mechanical robotic cutter
  • Rebar – mechanical robotic cutter
  • Faulty pipework or connection – mechanical robotic cutter
  • Roots – high pressure jetting or root cutter

As a pipe rehabilitation specialist not only can we assist you with removal of the obstacle, we can then advise on the best and most cost effective repair solution.
