Alton Pumps Ltd has a longstanding history and a proud reputation. You might already know us, or may have already used us, in our capacity as pump suppliers and engineers. What many of our newer customers might not know is that we also cover the South of England as drainage contractors. We offer a quality service built on 50+ years of shared experience. Use us for callouts, or on a genuine 24/7 emergency basis.
Located in Hampshire, our time-served drainage contractors offer a responsive service across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hertfordshire, London, Oxfordshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex, Wiltshire and the Home Counties.
We understand that a blocked toilet or a blocked drain can soon become a health hazard. What you might not realise is that in addition to unsanitary conditions, blockages impact the structural integrity of properties if left unattended. Night or day, we can be with you to offer an unblocking and clearance service that can also include CCTV surveys.
Call our drainage contractors for rapid unblocking in all problem areas, including sewer drains, kitchens, bathrooms, toilets, grease traps and more. We use rod systems, snakes and high-pressure jet washers to clear blocked drains. In the vast majority of cases, we quickly source and remove the foreign objects which cause blockages. This can include baby wipes, hair, and even small toys flushed down the toilet by children.
In the event of stubborn blockages, or if we suspect a more serious issue, customers can use Alton Pumps to perform a CCTV drain survey and establish the cause.
We provide drainage services for homeowners, local businesses, developers, local authorities, educational facilities, care homes, hospitals and all sensitive environments.
Today, drainage contractors use high-pressure jet washers to unblock and clean pipework more often than with any other system. Jetting is safe, thorough and effective. Rods and snakes, used incorrectly, can damage pipework walls. High-pressure jetting moves obstructions and silt, and cleans walls of dirt and limescale, without compromising the physical integrity of the drainage system itself.
Drain jetting is a service offered in all parts of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Wiltshire.
We also use jet washers to clean cesspits and septic tanks after emptying either of wet waste.
Your drainage system can suffer damage for several reasons. Our contractors use the industry’s most innovative CCTV technology to investigate the possible causes of a blockage, or as part of a pre-purchase survey. Using a camera fixed to wheels, operated by remote control from above the ground, our technicians observe relayed footage on a monitor. If required, we can record this footage to DVD for insurance purposes.
The results of a CCTV survey can reveal the cause of major blockages, instances of damage or collapse, and even the intrusion of tree roots through the drainage pipework walls.
This is a cleaner, more cost-effective alternative to drainage contractors excavating and performing a visual investigation.
On the subject of excavation, we can also perform repairs without having to dig out large sections of your drainage system. We understand how much mess and upheaval excavation can cause. Our drainage contractors have experience in no-dig investigations and trenchless repair work. While we can still excavate for major pipework replacement, smaller repairs tend to be much more efficient when we use a drain lining.
Low water levels, gurgling noises, odours, slow draining and greener grass near pipes and tanks are all indicators of a problem with your drainage system. Root intrusion, rapid freezing and thawing, unstable ground and changes in water pressure can all cause damage to the pipework.
A drain lining is a simple, joint-free system that repairs sectional areas of pipework. A polymer lining bonds inside the existing pipework to seal off damage with no digging needed. We have drainage contractors operating across all parts of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Wiltshire, all of whom have experience in no-dig drain repairs.
Wherever you are, we’ll keep you flowing!
