Sewer Desilting

Is silt build-up causing a blockage in your sewer?

Silt build-up in sewers can lead to a blockage. Put simply, silt is the large matter that is not able to be carried by water and instead sinks to the bottom of the sewer and lays there. As it builds up, silt solidifies and causes a rock like texture that eventually leads to a partial sewer blockage or a completely blocked sewer.

Our drainage and groundwork services team can inspect your sewer using specialist CCTV equipment. We will identify where the problem lies and determine who is responsible for the desilting. It may be the case that the silt-build up is beyond your boundary wall and therefore the local water supplier is responsible. We will never charge you to desilt a sewer that is not your responsibility (be careful as other companies will happily let you pay them to fix a sewer problem that you are not responsible for).

Drainage, Plumbing and Groundwork’s services recommend desilting periodically to keep your sewers in check. Call us for a quote on annual desilting services. DPG Services are happy to service customers from across the North East of England.
