What to do if you discover concrete in a drain on your site
Once you have established that concrete has definitely entered your drains and is causing a problem, which can be done through a professional CCTV drain survey, the next stage is to remove the concrete as soon as possible.
The most popular method is drain jetting, which comes with its own issues. Using water to blast through the concrete is a time-consuming and costly process – in severe cases of concrete blockages, it can actually result in breakage of the pipes, which will then need replacement.
Luckily, there is a modern alternative, known as hydro cutting. Like drain jetting, it still uses water to cut through the concrete. However, hydro cutting is an advanced, precise system which uses computer-controlled hydro cutting robots to accurately remove the concrete in a fraction of the time compared to standard drain jetting. This saves time and labour costs, and thanks to the accuracy of this technique, the likelihood of the pipes breaking is also reduced.
