The Twelve Days of Christmas With Hydro Cleansing | 4. Trenchless Tech

“On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me,
four broken pipes,
three Septic Tanks,
two feet of tree roots,
and Hydro Cleansing’s Mega-Heat…”

no dig trenchless CIPP technology

Day four of the Christmas countdown is upon us, and so is the latest blog instalment! Today’s blog is all about our talented CCTV team and their top of the range trenchless technology. Drain repair equipment has come a long way in the past few years. Discovering you have a cracked or damaged  pipe no longer means digging up your garden and weeks of work. Advances in technology mean that repairs can begin almost immediately with no digging or disruption. Read on for a journey of drain lining discovery!

How does it work?

When you request a drain relining service the first step is to identify the cause of damage. We will send a CCTV unit into the pipe to assess the damage and check if a drain pipe relining is feasible. When we have completed this stage and agreed a drain relining is the best option, our team will start work!

What does it involve?

We will use one of our state of the art jet vac tankers to clean and remove any blockages within the drain or sewer pipe. This is to ensure the pipe has a good clean surface for the resin to bond to. We then insert a deflated packer (also known as a bladder) within the drain, pushing it through to the damaged area.  Once we have confirmed we are covering the damaged part of the drain with the drain relining patch, the packer (bladder) will then be inflated.

This will force the drain relining to bond with and secure itself to the inside of the drain or sewer pipe. Once dried, this makes a completely secure, leak-proof seal. Once we have removed the packer our team will then re-insert the CCTV unit into the newly repaired pipe to make sure that the resin has cured and there are no leaks. Drain relining can patch drain pipes from as little as 100mm diameter up to 1.5 metres and is a permanent solution.

Job Done!

Landmark CCTV Survey

Over two nights were commissioned (working to exceptionally tight timescale) to work on Tower Bridge by a major blue chip construction company, to carry out CCTV inspections using Solo Pro and a mini cam to identify the:

  • Drainage layout relating to invert levels
  • Branch lengths
  • Pipe diameters.

To assist our CCTV unit, one of HCL’s Fleet of Combination units was deployed and when required cleared the gullies of debris and obstructions to allow for clear run of all the lines. Man and machine working in harmony.

Hydro Cleansing have now successfully produced the associated CAD Drawings relating to the drainage system of one of London’s most iconic landmarks.

The pictures taken by our in house team show yet again the capabilities of HCL’s team, both relating to manpower and equipment.

Yet again HCL deliver on time and within budget.
