Flooded Basement? You Need Our Basement Pump Out Service!
If you have blocked drains that have flooded your basement then we offer basement pumpouts as a service to solve your problem. Based in Hertfordshire, GHPS have been providing clients throughout the local area with a reliable and professional drain unblocking and pump out service for many years. Our drainage team are all qualified drainage engineers and are trained to clear blocked drains quickly and efficiently.
Outstanding Customer Care
Our approach is simple, we aim to provide customers with an outstanding customer experience. We do this by quickly attending the job as we know how frustrating it is when you have a blocked drain. Secondly, we provide you with details of what we will be doing in order to either clear a blockage or clean the drains. Once the job is complete, we provide you with details of what we have done and ensure that you are fully satisfied with the outcome.
Removing the flood water
While the blockage is being attended to we will start pumping out the excess flood water from your basement. The key is to do this as quickly as possible should more water enter the basement area.
What we do when you have a flooded basement
We also offer a service to identify where the blockage originates from. We do this by firstly removing drain covers to check for blockages. Then if there are no obvious signs in the drain chamber we can use our cctv inspection camera which can move along the drain pipes until it finds the blockage.
Identifying & removing the blockage
Once the blockage has been pinpointed, there are several different options depending on the extent of the blockage from using rods to using our high pressure jet water spray (jetters) that quickly and effectively remove the blockage.
Drain CCTV Cameras
We use HD CCTV cameras when assessing your blocked drains and when we do so we can provide you with the footage so that you know what condition your drains are in. If we notice that your drains are in poor condition then you may also want us to do a full drain survey to identify weak areas of the drain.
If on inspection we identify that you have drainage issues such as cracked, scaled or dislodged pipes then we solve the problem. Our drain surveys provide HD footage of all areas of the pipe and allow us to accurately identify problem areas. This means that if there is a serious problem with the pipe such as a break, we do not need to dig up the whole pipe. We can instead dig up the small section that is damaged and replace that section. This saves time and cost and is made possible due to our state of the art drainage equipment. We can then provide you with a report on our software which is approved by Water Research Council – an an established scheme recognised internationally and local authorities and insurers.
What if there is a problem with my drains?
Should a pipe be slightly worn or cracks emerging then we can re-line the inside of the pipe for you. This process puts a new highly protective coating over the existing drain pipe which allows water and waste to flow easily and safely through the drain.
