Cracked Drain Gully Repair
We were called out to a working farm in Surrey to investigate an issue with a gully drain. The property owner had tried to unblock the drain with rods, but these became stuck in the drain.
What is a gully drain?
A gully is an outside water drain pipe that’s designed to discharge water. This includes rainwater drainage from your guttering and grey wastewater from your kitchen, washing machine, sinks, bath, shower and dishwasher. If your gully drain becomes cracked or broken it can lead to blockages and leaks.

If you’ve noticed that your water gullies are draining slowly they might be blocked or broken. There are some common signs to look out for that will alert you to a potential problem with your drain gully:
