    What Is Cured-In-Place Pipe?

    If a pipe system has become deteriorated, then a renovation/re-lining service is required to ensure the pipelines can continue to operate without disruption. In cases where pipe re-lining is required, we at Countywide Drains use a cured in place pipe lining solution as this is one of the most efficient and cost effective methods of re-lining a pipeline.


    Overview

    During this process, a resin saturated lining tube is installed in a pipeline using a polyurethane coated felt tube. Air or water is to install the liner inside the old pipe, after which it is allowed to cure. As a lining solution, CIPP is appropriate for systems such as underground, larger diameter drain and sewer lines. CIPP eliminates the need for excavations.
    If you are experiencing issues with deteriorated pipelines, you may benefit from a Cured-In-Place Pipe re-lining service. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.

    Signs Your Septic Tank Needs To Be Cleaned

    Countywide Drain Services Ltd

    A well maintained septic tank is vital to properly managing the waste of your household or business, which is why it is vital you empty it on time and don’t allow it to overflow. Here we have compiled some of the common warning signs that indicate your septic tank may be full.

    Areas of Pooling Water
    One of the most common symptoms of an overflowing septic tank is areas of water pooling in or around the drain field of your septic tank system. Once the tank has reached its capacity, waste can begin to clog the system, which forces liquid to the surface.

    Slow Moving Drains
    Although slow moving drains can simply mean you have a clog, it is also a symptom of your septic tank system being full. If traditional unclogging measures don’t seem to be working, your best bet is to request a septic tank cleaning service.

    Foul Odours
    Your septic tank system accumulates not only waste but also the grey water which comes from showering, washing dishes, etc. This combination creates a foul smelling odour, which usually will be contained. However, if your septic tank system is overflowing, then this foul odour can permeate into your property.

    Overly Green Grass
    The grass around your septic tank should look the same as the rest of the grass in your garden. Overly green or lush grass surrounding a septic tank can indicate leakage, meaning you need either a septic tank cleaning or repair service.

    Sewage Backup

    Sewage backup is one of the surest signs your septic tank has reached capacity and needs to be cleaned as soon as possible.

    If you notice any of these issues, be sure to give us a call on 021 733 4550 to schedule a septic tank cleaning service.
