All CCTV drain surveys are professionally coded with our WINCAN software to Water Authority Standards – WTI 0S20x. Any necessary corrective works are highlighted within the report and our engineers are on hand to advise upon the most appropriate course of action. Whether sewer cleaning, pipe lining, root cutting or open cut excavation is required, we are sure to find the best possible solution. All quotations are supplied free of charge with no obligations.

SEWER CLEANING

High pressure water jetting is an immediate and cost effective way of cleaning and maintaining pipelines and drainage systems. It can reduce the need for disruptive excavation work in order to clear blocked drains.

The high-pressure water jetting unit can remove sewer and drainage blockages where excavations would not be possible.

Jetting is suitable for pipe work sizes ranging from 100mm up to 2000mm in diameter, and if carried out regularly can greatly improve the life span of pipelines and sewer drainage systems.

Wilkinson Environmental Ltd can provide a variety of units from high volume machines up to 80gpm performance, to high-pressure machines capable of up to 36,000psi.

Our sewer cleaning units boast a rear mounted hydraulic jetting reel with over 200metres of hose as standard. All units are supplied with jetting nozzles ranging from blockage nozzles, bomb jets to silt jets and spinning jets. With our wide range of sewer cleaning equipment, Wilkinson Environmental Ltd guarantees that all blockages and sewer cleaning works are carried out as efficiently as possible.

SPECIALIST OBSTRUCTION REMOVAL

Wilkinson Environmental Ltd has built up a wealth of experience in removing obstructions that most other contractors walk away from and say cannot be removed.

If you have an obstruction in a sewer line that is too difficult or too deep to carry out an open excavation on, and everyone is telling you that it cannot be removed, then give Wilkinson Environmental a call. We can remove a variety of obstructions including the following:

• Full house bricks from 6″ sewers upwards
• Drain rods lost down connections that are intruding into main sewers
• Intruding connections which impair flows
• Drain stoppers that have been left in the sewer by a contractor after repairs
• Displaced jointing rings
• Big obstructions in large culverts

PIPELINE PRESSURE TESTING

Wilkinson Environmental Ltd can provide air and water testing to a variety of pipework and pressurised systems, including rising main and gravity sewers.

After the installation or repair of any drain or pipeline system it should be tested for leaks. Newly laid and existing drainage systems can be tested by a variety of means from air testing to water testing on both positive and negative pressure tests on any size pipe. Pull through stoppers can also be used to isolate sections of pipe work to determine which joint is leaking.

Wilkinson environmental have also developed a unique Joint Testing System, incorporating a camera which allows pipe joints to be quickly located and tested. The flexible construction and guide wheels allow the Joint Pipe Tester to be pushed around bends and over displaced joints. The mounted camera allows the operator to see the exact location of the joint before testing commences.

The NEW Joint Testing System allows long sections of the pipe to be tested quickly and accurately saving time and money. The system allows you to both test and view pipe diameters from 100mm – 525mm (225+mm joint testers have wheel attached for easy positioning).

 

BUILD OVER SURVEYS

Extending your house or building a home extension or garage?

Any building or groundworks can affect underground sewer pipes and sewer connections within your property’s boundaries. Since water utility companies took ownership of all shared sewers in 2010, all homeowners and property developers planning to build over or close to a public sewer (within 3 metres) need to gain permission from their local sewerage company and provide a Build Over Survey. This is required under Building Regulations 2010 part 4

Wilkinson Environmental offers a complete service for Build Over Surveys including a scaled plan showing the position of the sewer line, a CCTV survey of the sewer line in question (detailing any faults) plus a follow up drainage survey and engineers report detailing any observations and recommendations. Most importantly the Build Over Survey provides proof that you have not caused any damage to the sewers and there are no issues with the drain before you start.

 

SEWER  ADOPTION

Are you a developer with a building or housing site with existing drainage on it? Have the drains been adopted by the local water company?

If your local water company has not adopted your private drains you could be liable for extensive maintenance and repair bills, should problems arise, as they are your responsibility.

As a private drain owner, you also need to consider the environmental impact of sewer failure. For example, are you polluting the environmental unknowingly? When a private sewer system fails, foul effluent can pollute the local environment for which there are substantial fines for.

As waste water consultants at Wilkinson Environmental we assist private property owners and commercial building developers get their sewers adopted by the local water authorities. We are also specialists in new sewer connections, sewer repairs and can provide CCTV drain surveys and sewer cleaning services throughout Warwickshire the Midlands and the UK.
