Located in Leeds, Haig's Drains is a local, regional and nationwide drainage company with more than a decade of trade and industry experience. Wakefield is a key service area for our company and home to a sizeable number of our domestic and commercial customers. We offer drainage services on a responsive basis – by appointment or as emergency callouts. Contact us on 07847 853865 for assistance with blocked drains or to arrange a prompt CCTV survey.


Our service range includes drain repairs. If we can’t restore the integrity of your system with a repair, our ENGINEERING SMART SOLUTIONS include replacement drains.


Is your drainage company accredited?

Yes. We are proud members of the Water Jetting Association (WJA). High-pressure jet washing is our preferred method of dealing with blocked drains in Wakefield. The WJA raises the safety standards of commercial jet washer use through its membership and the drainage services that members provide to their own customers. This is an important form of accreditation for our business and our registration includes key data on operative training.


Our drainage company uses certificated DRB personnel to provide its jet washing services.


Do you excavate to perform drain repairs and replacements?

Haig's Drains uses a combination of digging (excavation) and non-digging (non-excavation) techniques. Smaller drain repairs often involve patching and use continuous or segmented slip lining techniques. For a more modern repair, our drainage company uses a resin-soaked drain lining that cures with water or ultraviolet light. Both drain repairs require no excavation and, as such, minimise inconvenience and disruption at your Wakefield site or property.


If pipework damage is extreme, replacement drains usually require at least a small amount of excavation. While we understand that this presents a few problems for a handful of our customers and clients, it is still less disruptive – and more cost-effective – than having to repair or replace pipework left to deteriorate over a longer period of time.


What is a CCTV drain survey?

A CCTV drain survey is an investigate method used to determine the causes behind blocked drains, and one that gives our technicians a clearer insight into the drain repairs needed. Our drainage company uses remote-controlled cameras to crawl the pipework and relay HD images back to an above-ground monitor. We record these images to DVD and show our Wakefield customers through the final footage to explain our findings and our diagnosis.


The results of a survey could point towards an issue we can resolve with one of our non-excavation drain repairs, or towards the need for replacement drains in the event of a significant collapse. Because we also perform surveys for home buyers, mortgage lenders and insurers, CCTV now plays a more important role in our drainage services than ever before.


Does your drainage company provide contract maintenance services?

Yes. Preventative maintenance is a great way to reduce the potential for blocked drains, especially for restaurants and takeaways in Wakefield that introduce more fatty deposits into the system than most other business types. A maintenance contract also keeps pipework in a good physical condition and saves the client money on drain repairs further down the line. Our company offers contract drainage services on a scheduled basis – built around the needs of you and your business.


The ongoing cost of repair work and replacement drains is a financial loss very few businesses can accommodate. Using a drainage company on a contract basis minimises outgoings and significantly reduces the potential for major damage.


We also offer contract maintenance services to domestic customers in or around the Wakefield area.
