Septic Tank & Drainage Services in Keynsham BS31

Septic Tank Inspections and Sewage Treatment Installations

Situated at the confluence of two rivers (the Chew and the Avon) the town of Keynsham – south of Bristol and north of Bath in the Bath & North East Somerset unitary authority – is dedicated to keeping its waterways and surrounding green belt clean and healthy.

That’s why it is important than properties in Keynsham and the surrounding BS31 postcode area which have septic tank systems or other “off main” sewerage treatment facilities keep these properly maintained and compliant with environmental law.

The Drain Specialists carry out septic tank compliance surveys in Keynsham for property buyers and sellers, or anyone who wants to make sure their system is fit for purpose, and not polluting the local surface water in the Chew Valley water catchment area.  We are also experts at installing new septic tanks in Keynsham, soakaways, cesspits or sewage treatment plants on private properties.

We’ll make sure that your private drainage system doesn’t fall short of the Binding Rules, set by the Environment Agency, so that you don’t lay yourself open to being fined for flouting the regulations. If we detect a problem we can recommend a modification or other solution to bring it up to par.

This service is extremely useful if you’re a prospective buyer of a property in Keynsham and want to make sure that the drains are not hiding any nasty surprises.

We also carry out drain surveys in Keynsham and across the BS31 postcode area for property owners who need to know where their drain and sewer pipes are located, or whether there are any defects or faults in the drainage network.

We operate in Keynsham itself and in the surrounding areas such as Compton Dando, Corston, Marksbury, Saltford and Whitchurch.

Keynsham BS31 Drain Clearance Experts

When the inevitable day comes that you face the unpleasant experience of having a blocked drain in Keynsham, don’t despair. If you’ve tried all the DIY routes for unblocking your plughole – from a plunger to a chemical unblocker – without success, The Drain Specialists will be able to get the water flowing freely again.

Usually drain pipes are blocked in Keynsham by unsuitable, non-biodegradable items or substances that have been flushed down the toilet or washed down the sink. These we can deal with quickly, and always advise on taking measures like using plughole guards or traps to prevent things like fats or coffee grounds from building up and blocking the u-bend, or hair and soap scum clogging the shower outlet.

If the blockage is more serious and deeper down in the drain network however, we’ll use our CCTV Camera equipment to find it. We can clear drain blockages in Keynsham using our high-pressure water jetting equipment, or in some cases drain rodding.  We’ll get the waste water and sewage running away safely without having to dig up any drains.
