When people think of groundworks companies or, to a lesser degree, about foundation installers, they rarely make an instant link with foul drainage or surface water. Instead they think more of excavation and earthworks, or of concrete laying for foundations, raft slabs and concrete bases. In fact, many of our newer customers in Tunbridge Wells won’t think of foul drainage or surface wastewater at all.
Most homes in Tunbridge Wells have a dual drainage system with pipework that separates foul drainage wastewater from surface wastewater runoff. Foul drainage wastewater comes from toilets, baths and sinks, or from domestic appliances, and it disperses into sewage treatment plants. Surface water is typically rain or stormwater that runs from rooftops, surfaces and roads before dispersing into soakaways or streams.
Ravensrock Groundworks has a good understanding of foul drainage and surface wastewater because we are groundworkers, foundation installers and concrete laying specialists. In fact, we often build concrete bases for foul drainage wastewater systems, such as treatment tanks and pumping stations.
This means we speak from a position of authority, understand drainage well, and have clear ideas on how we can help customers from the Tunbridge Wells area with drainage issues.
If you notice signs of a blockage because a toilet, a bath or a sink won’t empty, or if you notice unpleasant smells or foul drainage water emitting from manholes, you need to speak to a groundworks and drainage contractor immediately. Choosing a combined service provider is a smart move because, in addition to resolving the issue, a company that has experience in multiple roles can investigate the cause behind the problem.
Because Ravensrock trades as foundation installers too, we’ll be able to tell you everything about your drainage system.
And, if you live in a more rural area of Tunbridge Wells without a mains sewer connection, we can help you to manage foul wastewater dispersal with a combined groundworks and drainage service that includes concrete laying. Should you need us to install cesspits, septic tanks or sewage treatment plants, we can excavate, prepare, build concrete bases to support the installation, and backfill to leave your Tunbridge Wells property looking clean and undisturbed.
The groundworks and drainage specialists at Ravensrock, and our foundation installers, can advise on the following:
• Water flowing towards your home, business or garden
• Instances of flooding or standing water
• Blocked or damaged drainage systems
• Foul drainage odours and leaks from manholes
• Foundations, pilings, raft slabs and concrete bases
