Minimised DisruptionCost SavingsEnhanced SafetyEnvironmentally Friendly
Traditional methods of repairing or installing underground utilities often require large trenches to be dug, which can disrupt traffic, damage landscapes, and become a general nuisance to the public and environment. Non-Dig Drainage Technology, on the other hand, involves minimal surface disruption, ensuring that roads, pavements, and green spaces remain largely unaffected.Trenchless techniques often prove more cost-effective in the long run. Although the upfront costs might sometimes be higher than traditional methods, the savings come in the form of reduced restoration costs, decreased disruption-related costs, and fewer long-term maintenance issues.With fewer open trenches, there are reduced risks associated with on-site accidents. Open trenches can pose a hazard to both workers and the public.Trenchless methods have a lesser impact on the environment. Traditional excavation can lead to the disruption of habitats, increased air and noise pollution, and potential contamination of groundwater from sediment run-off.

Non-dig drainage repair technology is the way to go when it comes to installing a pipe without excavation. Picote cutting can remove roots and any deformed liners. It’s also great for cutting back roots, lateral cutting, de-scaling, cast iron renovation, pitch fibre renovation and lining rectification.

The only time we need to dig is where there are obstructions such as trees or buildings. It’s ideal for installing new piping as we can do more work in the same amount of time meaning we pass the cost savings on to you. As a bonus, there’s no traffic disruption!

Another big advantage of this sort of drainage repair process is that it extends the life expectancy of your pipes. It reduces stress and corrosion meaning you won’t have to spend on pipes for a long time!

This technology has some great environmental benefits too. It doesn’t disrupt the soil ecosystem where we install the new piping and root cutting saves trees from being cut down.

Many companies use conventional methods which involve digging up pavements and roads, disrupting traffic during the installation and removal processes. You can quickly see why we recommend this form of non-dig drainage repair technology over any other method when repairing or replacing piping. When undertaking more invasive forms of repairs, the costs can quickly spiral due to the high costs associated with excavation work. By using Picote cuts instead, we save time which saves you money.

Are you suffering from one of the following:

  • Defects of Pipe – Lining to ensure cracks are no longer a problem.
  • Root Ingress – Removal of roots from trees and line the pipe to seal meaning no further issues arise.
  • Leaks – Installation of a new drain liner to seal the pipe, ensuring no further leaks.
  • Pitch Fibre Renovations – Restore pitch fibre pipes and remove any blisters before sealing with a new liner.

  • Once the quote has been accepted we will book your work in within 4 weeks.
What is a CCTV Survey?
A CCTV Drain Survey is an in-depth inspection of your drainage system using specially designed CCTV camera equipment. CCTV surveys are a critical and often a huge time saving part of drainage repairs. They allow for the easy identification and surveying of potential problems that may arise from your drains.
