Hiring Drainage Contractors
“We work commercially in Braintree.”
The River Brain runs closely to land and housing in Braintree with many connecting brooks. During high rain season, rivers over flow their banks and cause damage. To repair the problem, Smithy’s jet wash the pipe and drain and were necessary, artificial drainage will replace broken drains as a course of action to protect the rivers from displacing too much water on land and neighbouring homes, which becomes a health and safety risk if left. We work with local authorities ( Braintree & Essex Council.) to resolve land drainage.
“We Work on Highway drainage.”
Smithy’s Drains can help to service the M25 to fix and replace any sewer drains that can be damaged or blocked.

“who is responsible for drain repairs?”
You will know fairly quickly when your drain is in need of repair. 9 times of 10 a toilet stops flushing and drain grates overflow and you start to notice odours appearing. Since October 2011, as a home owner or business owner you are only responsible for the drains inside your property grounds including the ones you share with your neighbours.
How is a drain repair carried out?
When hiring Smithys drain repairs Braintree, we will carry out a CCTV survey which can travel deep into the drain pipeline up-to 100 metres to establish where the drain system is damaged or broken. In the advancements of CCTV inspection, the cameras are able to accurately data capture and relay mobile colour videos with numerical data of where the drain needs repairing.
Based on our drain repair survey, we can establish a quote for the work required in which will be based on the most long term solution to resolve the damage drain system.
