People in the Wiltshire town of Corsham are perhaps a little more mindful than most of modern drainage systems – after all, this historic location has been the setting for many the filming of many a period drama featuring heroes such as Poldark and Tess of the d’Urbervilles, who in real life, back in the days of yore, were sadly lacking in the “mod cons”.
Probably though, like most of us, Corsham residents don’t give much thought to pipes and drains until something goes wrong with them – then they call in the local experts, Roman Rod Ltd.
There’s nothing old-fashioned about Roman Rod’s equipment and experience in dealing with all aspects of plumbing and drainage work in Corsham, from a blocked sink or toilet to a collapsed sewer pipe. The company’s crew utilises top of the range high tech systems and modern machinery to blast through blocked drains and repair cracked or broken pipes. Excavation is necessary only as a last resort.
Pipes and drains do not have to be old to become blocked or broken. Deposits on the walls of the pipe from hard scale, grease, oil and soap scum can build up causing a blockage in bathroom and kitchen sinks. Outside drains are bedevilled by an accumulation of leaves, silt, dirt and other detritus, while sewers might “back up” when the water table rises. Pipes can crack or collapse because of natural or man-induced subsidence, corrosion or the infiltration of tree roots.
The result is at best your bath will take ages to empty or your plughole will emanate foul smells, while at worst your garden will become a soggy mud-hole.
When any of these calamities occur at Corsham properties – domestic or commercial – Roman Rod is able to react speedily to identify and rectify the problem, large or small.
Roman Rod operatives are experts at using a colour mini camcoiler drain and pipe TV inspection system on a push rod, which gives a high resolution image of the interior of any pipe from 50mm to 150mm in diameter. The company also utilises sonar electronic drain tracking equipment to locate the run and depth of piping, which can save a great deal of time and money.
Extremely powerful drain jetting equipment is used to clear and clean pipes, which fires out laser-like water jets at pressure levels up to 5000 psi.
Roman Rod are experts at repairing broken or damaged pipes using structural lining techniques, which involve mending the pipe with resin inserted under pressure.
Despite the use of state of the art equipment, modern methods of drain management such as those employed by Roman Rod for their clients in Corsham are not any more expensive in real terms than the older practices of using cable “snakes”, ramrods and pungent chemicals to do the job. The whole process is quick, clean and economical for the client.
