We understand how damaging a leak can be for an agricultural property, particularly if the damaged pipework runs under the land where a flood could have detrimental effects. That’s why our drainage engineers cover a wide range of services when it comes to blockages using advanced high-pressure jetting equipment.
Why choose Kent Drainage?
With more than 20 years of experience and a low hourly rate, you can guarantee you are in safe hands with Kent Drainage.
We appreciate the importance of reducing the risk of flooding for an agricultural property, and so offer preventative planned drainage maintenance contracts. Our contracts reassure you that your drainage infrastructure is fully functioning all year round. These scheduled drainage checks help to take preventative measures, reducing the chances of the imminent destruction caused by a damaged drainage system.
Planned Preventative Maintenance Contracts
We offer 3-month, 6-month and 12-month planned preventative maintenance contracts. Our programmes offer you long-term protection from a damaged drainage system, ensuring drainage issues are tackled in the most efficient and economical way. On average, your drains and plumbing infrastructure should be checked 4 times a year.
All drain maintenance, cleaning and repair work is carried out by our experienced drainage engineers. Our highly qualified, specialist engineers will carry out an extensive drain survey of your entire site, assessing problem areas and bringing these to your attention before they can lead to blockages. We then use our specialist high-pressure water jetting system and mechanical equipment to clean all ground drainage pipework, internal pipework and traps, road gullies, ACO channels and guttering, leaving all drains free of scale, fat, debris and silt build-up and ensuring a free-flowing drainage system.
Our contracts are designed to cater for all your drainage and plumbing needs and can be arranged at a time that suits you best. Kent Drainage offers this service to agricultural properties throughout London, Kent and surrounding areas.
A CCTV drain survey is a detailed inspection of your drainage system. At Kent Drainage, we use state-of-the-art CCTV surveying equipment to inspect your drains. The CCTV camera is inserted into the drain and gives our experienced engineers live feedback, allowing them to identify any damage or issues. After your CCTV survey is carried out, you will receive a detailed report using hi-tech reporting software. Our engineers can then offer you a fixed quote for any necessary work.
It is vital to resolve any drainage issues as quickly as possible. A CCTV survey carried out by one of our specialist engineers can identify blockages, damage such as breaks or cracks in pipework, collapsed or fractured pipes, corrosion, tree root encroachment, animal infestations or signs of poorly installed pipework.

Drain Lining and Localised Structure Repair
The process of drain relining attaches a new lining to the inside of an existing drainage pipe, creating a protective layer. This forms a coating that shields the pipe against any future damage such as cracks and other potential harm. Localised structure repair (LSR) uses the same process as drain relining but only a small portion of the pipework is repaired.
If you wish to find out more detailed information about the difference between drain relining/LSR and traditional drain replacement, the method of drain relining and more, visit our drain relining and LSR in our blog posts.
What are the benefits of drain relining and LSR?
The main benefits for our clients with agricultural properties is that both drain relining and LSR are cheaper and mess-free alternatives to traditional drain excavation methods. Unlike typical drain replacement, ground excavation is unnecessary due to the trenchless method used by our engineers at Kent Drainage. This means it is unnecessary to dig up any land, which may have a damaging impact as a consequence. Alongside this, drain relining and LSR offer you long-term protection, both lasting up to 50 years.
Drain Relining or LSR?
- Drain relining is typically used for diameter ranges of 100mm to 1200mm.
- LSR can be used on pipework with a diameter of 100mm to 450mm and a length of 1 metre.
It is vital to have one of Kent Drainage’s specialist engineers assess the damage of your pipe to ascertain whether drain relining or LSR is possible or whether the pipework needs to be replaced.
If you are unsure whether you require LSR or drain relining contact us today! We offer drain relining and LSR throughout London and Kent to both domestic and commercial clients.

Sewer connections are vital in ensuring that all sewage and drainage waste is directed away from your building securely and efficiently, reducing the chances of a build-up of waste.
A mains sewer connection is when the pipework from your property is connected to the main drainage system, transporting sewage from various locations to a sewage treatment plant.
If you have a private drainage system (generally located in roads and footpaths), Kent Drainage can connect this to the main drains. Your private drainage system must be connected to the main sewer or a treatment plant.
In the instance that you do not have an on-site builder to install a private drain, Kent Drainage are also able to provide this service.
What are the benefits of sewer connections?
A connection to the main sewer system has reduced maintenance costs compared to a treatment plant. A connection to a main treatment plant needs to be maintained and cleaned out, typically at yearly intervals. With a main sewer connection, there is no need for this.
At Kent Drainage, our drainage experts have more than 20 years’ experience and knowledge in the installation of main sewer connections.
What is the process of a sewer connection?
The first step of the installation of a new sewer connection would be a free-of-charge site visit by one of our specialist engineers to ascertain the site requirements and location of your drains.
On your behalf, we would then request a drainage plan from the local water authorities- a CCTV survey of your drainage infrastructure may be required. Once a proposed plan has been drawn up, we can then apply for the sewer connection to be made. After this is approved, we then organise the job from start to finish, this is inclusive of all required road/footpath closures, diversion routes and all road applications to the local authorities.
At Kent Drainage, our engineers hold the required NRSWA certification, allowing us to fully deliver these projects to the highest standard possible.
If you are an agricultural property located in London, Kent or surrounding areas and would like to talk about your options in more detail, waste no time in contacting Kent Drainage today.
