JSL were called to examine a drain exposed by the owner in Milngavie. The customer had signs of rising damp and was concerned it was related to the drains.


The kitchen waste trap was found to be overflowing, the downstairs bathroom trap was overflowing and there were leaks from the soil (toilet waste) connections. The first actions was to clear the blocked traps which was achieved by sucking out the gravel using a hydrovac pump and clearing the blockage with a high pressure water jetter.


As the clay collars were broken and leaking it was decided to replace the section of drain, fit a new trap for the bathroom and join the new to old using 'Flexseal' collars. A quote was raised that day, accepted and the work was carried out a few days later at a time convenient to the customer.
