Pitch Fibre Repairs

Pitch fibre pipes were a cheap and lightweight form of piping, made from wood cellulose and coal tar. However, pitch fibre piping has caused problems in the past.

The Problem with Pitch Fibre Pipes

Pitch Fibre piping has caused many problems, due to the fact that that it can become deformed, leading to the pipes being blocked or even collapsing. This form of piping is cheap and lightweight, made from wood cellulose and coal tar. Another problem caused by the pipes is the fact that they can attract tree roots, which our root removal service can amend.

How Can You Tell If You May Be Affected

The Service We Provide

The service we provide at maintain drains involves a comprehensive survey of your piping using inspection technology, with a report on the findings. Any problems that occur will be fully repaired. We can restore and re-round any damaged pipe, with no disruption to you or your property. It’s best to fix the pipes before they fall, which will lead to an expensive and disruptive excavation and renewal. 

It Will Save You Money

Pitch fibre repairs can save you a fortune, compared to using excavation methods. Excavation can be costly and damaging to your property, as the ground would have to be disturbed. Not only is pitch fibre repairing cheaper and less damaging to your property, it is also more eco-friendly, as the pipes would have to be taken to a specialist landfill site due to their asbestos content.

  • Toilet unblocked

    John came within about half an hour of us phoning to clear the blocked toilet for an elderly friend recently out of hospital. He was fantastic. He found the problem quickly. Was very polite and helpful. We can’t praise him enough. Thank you.

  • Drains checked for possible rodents

    Tim was fantastic. We were trying to find out whether rats were using the drains to gain access to our property. We had only moved into the property recently and Jon found a second manhole cover that we didn’t know existed. He was very thorough, even checking under the sink for signs of entry. He also gave us good advice regarding the Water Company’s responsibilities regarding the drains. There is only one company we would use again and that is MAINTAIN DRAINS.

  • Very professional job

    Main drain was blocked about 12 meters down the pipe. Tim quickly identified the problem working from both ends of the drain and the blockage was cleared in 30 minutes. Rather than jumping straight to the power jet, he carefully examined the pipe and realized that the pipe was slightly degraded and that drain rods would be the best solution to avoid further damage to the pipe. He explained everything he did and his reasons for doing so. Fixed price so no surprises. A very professional job performed by a genuinely nice man. I recommend this company without reservation.
