Septic Tank / Bio Cycle Unit Cleaning

Kerry Drain Services can provide a number of services for your septic tank or bio cycle unit system. Like any sewage treatment system, septic tanks require regular maintenance to ensure it functions effectively and protects the environment. While many septic tanks in Ireland functioned for many years without de-sludging, an increase in the use of detergents and other materials over time may have affected the biological process in the system and solids may not break down as quickly. Whether you need to de-sludge your tank because it is backing up in the drain to your house or you are due a service under Septic Tank Regulations, Kerry Drain Services are at hand to assist you.

  • We don’t just empty your Bio Cycle Unit but make sure it’s clean, in good working order and filled back up with clean water as per manufactures instructions.
  • When there is access we can also jet clean the pipes coming in and going out to your percolation or soak pit.

CCTV Drain Inspections

If your drains are blocking on a frequent basis there may be a more extensive problem which needs to be addressed. A CCTV drain inspection can easily and quickly assess the condition of your drains and identify any problems such as damaged joints, cracks, deformities, obstructions or issues with pipe gradient (sagging or back falls). Once the problem is established, we will advise of the best type of repair for your home.

Drain Surveys

If you are considering purchasing a property, your engineer may recommend a survey of the property's drainage system. Much of the drainage system is hidden from view under the ground and the only way to thoroughly check its condition is with a CCTV survey. Here at Kerry Drain Services we offer professional drain surveys and inspection reports to put your mind at ease that your new home's drainage system is connected and working properly to avoid any nasty and expensive surprises down the line.

By ensuring that the drains are watertight and efficient in your new property, you can rest assured that your home will remain safe and secure in regards to its existing plumbing and drainage system. We also offer inspections of septic tanks for rural properties to ensure proper drainage and set-up in your property.

Drain Tracing and Mapping

Often customers are not sure of which way their drains run or need to know where a drain fault is located so a repair can be carried out. Kerry Drain Services can accurately locate the position of the pipe or any defect and mark it for you at ground level. Before you lift a shovel, allow Kerry Drain Services to use our sonde systems (CAT & Genny) in conjunction with our high-pressure jetting and CCTV surveying equipment and we will be able to detect and tell you exactly where the problem is located. No need to lose time and money digging in the wrong place! We use a range of tracing equipment to track your drainage systems. Our equipment travels through the pipe itself so is not affected by pipe material.

Dig with confidence

In addition to safety reasons, it is important to know exactly where to dig so that there is no time and money wasted digging in the wrong place.If you are planning an extension or new build, you will need to know where the existing drains are positioned and at what depth they are laid. Kerry Drain Services can find this important information and you can then plan with confidence.

Odour Tracing

Drain smells in your home are never pleasant, often embarrassing and typically intermittent. If you experience foul odours in your property or business which you suspect may be related to the drains, Kerry Drain Services can track down the source of the problem using our specialist smoke testing equipment. Often the cause of the smell may be quite easy to fix.

As these smells tend to come and go, it can be frustrating trying to figure out where the problem is coming from, particularly if they have disappeared by the time we arrive on site! Using our specialist smoke testing machine, we will introduce smoke to the drainage system which will follow the flow of air in the pipework and then will escape from the pipe at the same point as the smell. We can then trace the smoke visually and establish the location and nature of the fault.

We have traced drain smells for over 17 years and have come across all sorts of drain defects which lead to the escape of bad smells. Because of this experience, our drain technicians will know how to best test your system to get the required result.
