It is our promise that we will rectify all problems with ease, no fuss, and in the most cost effective manner possible.

Excavation Repairs

When all other options have been exhausted, sometimes the only option left to resolve a drainage issue to conduct a drain excavation. This means gaining open access to the connecting sewer or drain, so the full extent of the issue can be addressed and resolved. Wherever possible LDS look for alternative solutions to excavating floor areas, but there are some instances where it is unavoidable.

Using state of the art equipment our team will first conduct CCTV drain surveys to identify the root cause of the problem. We ensure minimal disruption is caused to your home or business, using our experience to complete the task as efficiently as possible.

Drain excavation repairs are a much more complex task compared to standard drainage issues, and have to be carried out by qualified and skilful professionals to ensure no additional damage occurs to the system or any connecting infrastructures below ground level.

If excavation repairs are needed due to flooding pipes, root intrusion or subsidence, our engineers carry out a thorough site assessment and ensure all health and safety measures are maintained. All materials generated are safely stored before the site is reinstated, the repairs allow the drainage system to perform its task effectively.

Relining and Patch Repairs

If excavation works are not required, in most cases the most a drainage system will require is relining or patch lining repairs. No digging is required for this repair solution, allowing our engineers to focus on certain sections of the pipework that can be repaired to resolve the wider issue.

Drains that have experienced fractures, partial collapse, leaking joints or rooted pipe joints are usually suitable for relining or patch lining repairs. If you need the piping repaired in an emergency, LDS can quickly respond to fix or replace the affected and will look to use no-dig technology (relining) to ensure a speedy resolution.

The process involves installing a lining that bonds to the inside of the pipe. This essentially creates a pipe within a pipe, maintaining the structure’s integrity so it can continue to support the flow of water through the system.

We are able to offer relining on pipes with 100mm diameter up to 1.5-metre culverts. Depending on access and logistics we may also be able to apply relining solutions to single lengths or as a series of shorter, overlapping liners. This is something we can assess on a case-by-case basis. Alternatively, patch liners can be installed in pipes with 60mm diameters up to 1.2-metres in length.

Ben Read, BTR Building Services

I have used London Drainage Services for over ten years and have always found them reliable, responsive and competitively priced. They are flexible and quickly adjust to any site requirement with well trained, expert workforce.

Nicholas Asamoah, Property Management Officer, Notting Hill Genesis

Efficiency - 10/10, Quality of Work - 10/10 and Customer Service. I cannot speak highly enough of a contractor who I have given emergency repairs and standard to day with different SLA times but the same efficient output. They were even just as efficient during the first lockdown in March 2020 and I have no qualms with this contractor following Government Guidelines when being faced with repairs inside a customer flat. I recommend them totally

Lian Blencowe, Managing Director, Ceomplas

We have used London Drainage Services on a wide range of projects over the last 5 years. Their work has always been completed to an exceptionally high standard. Their approach is professional, pragmatic and honest. They are always willing to go the extra mile and have always provided us with a fantastic service.

Alex Walters, Group Head of Facilities, The Office Group

Having worked with several drainage companies in the past I can certainly attest that LDS are the most reliable and customer focussed contractor I have experienced.

Their teams are well presented and you can always rely on them to attend site with the attitude of getting the job completed. They have a wide array of tools and equipment at their disposal and building services knowledge that is far superior to many in the industry.

They are often asked after by other contractors who know their reliability won’t let them down.

Tania, Facilities Manager at Ovaltine Building Watford Herts

“London Drainage Services have been looking after all of our drainage requirements or a number of years now and during all of this time they have responded when required and always solved our drainage problems. We now engage them in a maintenance contract that suits us both, as they know the system well and are more pro-active than reactive, and this
helps us keep our emergency costs to a minimum, which also means keeping our services contract costs low and our tenants happy”

Michael Pritchard, Integrated Design Associates

“Whenever we need assistance with our drainage designs we always enlist the services of LDS, as the owner in particular has been designing Public Health Services for over 30 years, and as well as the technical excellence they also have a well grounded hands on attitude when managing installation works either by their teams or others”
