Sherborne Utilities offer a comprehensive range of surface water installation & repair services, to assist with everything from new builds, property extensions, system upgrades, repeat blocked drains to collapsed pipe work. We take great pride in providing a solution for any surface water drainage request quickly and efficiently then undertaking the necessary repair again quickly and efficiently to minimise any disruption to the drainage service.
Soakaway Crates offer an efficient way to manage surface water at your property. Using new PVC pipework the surface water is directed away from the property underground and into a soakaway crate. The crate is placed centrally in a 1-2 meter deep hole lined with a barrier material, surrounded by 20mm clean stone and buried. The stone allows the water to disperse into the ground more efficiently, eliminating Damp caused by standing water around the property. Before installation a percolation test is carried out, where we dig a trial hole and carry out a filtration test over a 24 hour period. This determines the size your soakaway needs to be for the coverage area. Once the filtration results are confirmed we will then offer a fixed quotation to install the new soakaway.
French Drains offer an alternative solution for those customers not wanting or unable to install a soakaway at their property. Using new PVC pipework the surface water is directed away from the property and into perforated pipework buried underground. The trench in which the perforated pipe sits, is lined with a barrier material and the pipework set central, surrounded by 20mm clean stone and buried. The stone allows the water to disperse into the ground more efficiently, eliminating Damp caused by standing water around the property.
Acco Drains offer an effective drainage solution for driveways, patio areas and pathways around your property. Using pre formed Acco Drains the surface water is directed down channels and away from the area into a Soakaway or French Drain.
We provide a fast and effective service that will fix any issues with your drains. Sometimes some pipes need replacing or or need a drain liner to seal and stabilise pipework.
