Collapsed Drain Repair Cost

If you are experiencing drainage issues, you may have a collapsed drain somewhere in your drainage system. Here, we will be looking at collapsed drain repair cost, if the issues are fixable or if you may need a drain replacement.

How does a collapsed drain happen?

Collapsed drains arise when a drainpipe is so damaged that it collapses in on itself. More often than not, this can be caused by nature or weather changes such as extreme cold causing freezing in the drain, heavy rain and tree rot ingress. Other causes include general wear and tear where over time, the drains begin to weaken. Regardless of the cause, it is important to contact a professional to repair or replace the system before it causes damage to the property. 

What are the main signs of a collapsed drain?

As with many drainage issues, it can be hard to find what is causing a problem as they are in difficult areas which occupants may not be able to access. If left untreated, you will be able to notice signs of a collapsed drain. The main warning signs to keep an eye out for are sinking areas of land in the garden, an unpleasant smell, slow draining of drains in the kitchen and bathroom and early signs of dampness in the property.

Collapsed drain repair cost 

There is no set cost for a collapsed drain, unfortunately. The total cost to fix a collapsed drain depends on the extremity of damage and if it can be repaired instead of replaced. It is also important to consider the cost of a CCTV drain survey which will most likely be needed to locate where the collapse is in the system. 

On average, you could be looking at a minimum cost of £375 for collapsed drain repairs, and around £810 to have a drain replaced. It is to be expected for specialists to charge around £100 per metre for drain repairs and replacement drains are around £535 per metre. This is why ensuring you have your drains inspected earlier on can save you money in the long run.
