School Drain Maintenance

Why Get It?

School buildings need regular maintenance.

While they share many similarities to commercial and industrial buildings, one of the key areas they differ is the volume of people on site. Comparable only to office space, educational buildings have high volumes of people using their facilities day in, day out.

The result is a heavy toll on drainage systems.

And when problems arise, disruption is rarely, if at all, an option. Closing even part of a school can cause serious issues as, unlike commercial properties, sending young children home is not an option whilst maintenance is carried out.

Is Your Drainage Setup


New schools are rarely built in favour existing ones being expanded time and again. This leads to a mismatch drainage systems. Original pipes built from hazardous materials confirming to different regulations integrating with modern systems can create unexpected challenges.

This varied setup can lead to many points of failure and reduced capacity. On the other hand, understanding where these variations exist can save time and money if maintenance is needed in the future.

Tools For All Eventualities

Complex systems which are a mismatch of old and new suggests any maintenance could require extensive and invasive digging and disruption.

DHC is capable of minimising disruption through cutting edge diagnostic services. CCTV Surveys, Dye Testing and sonar tracing can be carried out with no disruption or digging required, and these diagnostics allow us to pinpoint exactly where maintenance is required and to what extent.

Many maintenance tasks can be carried out with jetwashing requiring no digging at all.

Patch repair allows us to rectify problems early and with minimal disruption, preventing them becoming more serious issues.
