Ground / Drainage Work needed - New soil pipe run


Recommended Posts

Looking for recommendations for local groundwork / drainage experts for a job as soon as possible (see below for details)

= = = = = = =

We are re-locating our bathroom to an internal room in our ground floor (/basement) victorian flat.

As such, we need to run a new soil pipe and channel in waste for the bath, shower and basin in the floor also.

We suspect it is a 4? concrete slab with earth underneath (typical for this type of house - built circa 1890). We do not know of anything underneath, but we would ask that you bring suitable test equipment just to be sure.

The new soil pipe will need to run the full length of the room (2.5m) and the full length of the hallway (also 2.5m) to meet the existing shared soil pipe outside which we suspect runs under our front door step outside - it?ll need to be joined in (above ground it?s a metal pipe, not sure what happens below ground).

We require:

1) Soil pipe channel cutting including enough depth to allow a suitable fall - we will eventually be replacing the floor in the hallway but we will need to cover it up until we do that. So as clean a cut as possible would be ideal so we can put temporary boards on after the new pipe is installed and re-concreted.

2) Channels cutting in the new bathroom as per approx. in the picture attached for bath, shower and basin waste pipes. These will all join the new soil on a boss each.

3) Digging outside the front step and connecting the new soil pipe to the existing one. Please note that as it is a shared pipe from two flats above, the actual connection stage will need to be done as quick as possible so as to not cause too much disturbance. Preparatory work can be extensive if necessary, but the actual cut and join will need to be as efficiently as possible.

- - We will need proper dust extraction as the cutting will be inside the flat - -

    • Probably not, Alice. Never mind
    • I seem to remember it is quite straight forward - you just send them an email explicitly stating you are making a FOI request and who you are and say you want to see all the responses from the consultation. 
    • Vinegar seems to work. A few years ago we had a real fox problem, and I was told human urine is good. Thing is, it smells and seems you need a lot of it. Some vinegar along your perimeter should help. They've hundreds of other gardens to prowl.  
    • I was with TNV up until about a year ago and I had an out of hours emergency. I don’t know what they advise on their voicemail now but back then it was to go to the SLEVC on The High Parade in Streatham. In my panic I heard the message and went to Streatham instead of Camberwell (which is closer to ED) & the experience in Streatham was appalling. Perhaps my pet and I were just very unlucky with the vet on duty that particular night, I don’t know, as I hadn’t been before. But I do know I’ll always regret going to the High Parade clinic in Streatham and will never go near the place with a barge pole ever again. A couple of the nurses were wonderful but the rest was truly dreadful.
