Cast Iron Refurbishment

ARD are specialists in restoration in cast iron pipes below and above ground.We have the capability with our specialist machinery to restore the diameter to most cast iron pipes. Due to age, rust, scale, the internal dimensions reduce in size over the years due to lack of maintenance.

Unfortunately drainage pipes are never a problem until they block and stop working.

Everybody’s drainage system needs cleaning throughout at some point in time, fat, grease, silt and lime scale, inevitably accumulate reducing capacity and flow and can even cause a total blockage.

Our engineers are capable of cutting back cast iron from 150ml pipes that have reduced to 75ml in diameter, using our 10,000 psi specialist high pressure jetting lorry to cut back scale, debris, and rust to it’s original diameter. Pipe sizes ranging from 4 to 12 inch pipes.

Once we have carried out the renovations, we then camera survey and give a full diagnostics comprehensive report on digital DVD camera for our clients to view. In some cases the cast iron could have been buried in concrete for many years and the invert level could be very deep this causing very expensive emergency excavation.

In most cases we have to reline the drain pipe, inserting a felt and resin liner, prior to renovation to guarantee that the drain does not leak and subside in the near future.

All workmanship and materials are guaranteed for ten years.
