If you live in the Wiltshire town of Trowbridge, or own commercial property there, the hidden underground reticulation of water and waste pipes is probably not something you are overly concerned with.
Every property in Trowbridge – indeed in any of our housing and industrial estates – has two important pipes out of sight underground which occasionally need some attention. The first is the water supply pipe which brings in water to the property from the water main out in the street, and the second is the sewer pipe which carries waste water out.
It’s easy to forget about these vital lifelines which enable us to simply turn on the tap, empty the bath, or flush the toilet without a second thought.
When the happy flow of your life becomes dammed up by a blockage or break somewhere in the system, you need to call in the professionals. Likewise if you are extending your property and need to move drains or add new ones.
Roman Rod Ltd. are the local drainage experts in Trowbridge, ready, willing and able to respond rapidly to deal with any drainage issue.
As the owner of a property in Trowbridge you are responsible for any leaks or damage to the part of the water supply pipe that runs through your property, so it will be down to you to have repairs made. The same is true of your private sewerage drain, although this ceases to become your responsibility as soon as it joins up with the drains from other properties. If the damage occurs beyond the interconnecting joint then the local water authority undertake the repairs.
With the right technical equipment and know-how, such as that employed by Roman Rod, any drain repairs that are needed on your property are usually quickly and highly efficiently carried out. It is only when new drains have to be laid or old ones moved that excavation to expose pipes is necessary.
Blockages are deftly dealt with using high pressure water jetting, and even cracks and breaks in underground pipes can be repaired in situ using the structural lining technique.
Roman Rod have dealt with a wide variety of drainage disasters in Trowbridge, from overflowing toilets blocked with baby wipes (a common problem!) to burst water pipes after freezing. Some of the problems are preventable if householders take precautions, but others – like the insidious incursion of tree roots into pipes or drains cracking because of subsidence – are just accidental.
Whatever the drain problem that arises, Roman Rod suggest that the occupiers turn the water stop cock in the building off and call their professional crew to identify and repair the issue. So make sure you know where the stop cock is, and keep Roman Rod’s number 01225 332181 to hand.
