Drain Relining

The drain relining process involves the installation of a drain lining which bonds to the
inside of the pipe, essentially creating a pipe within a pipe.

Why should you get your drains relined?

When the inside of your drains has been compromised – usually identified through a CCTV survey – you will need professional drainage services. Two common ways of fixing more challenging damage inside your pipes underground is to have either drain relining or have replacement drains put in place.

One major benefit of relining your pipes is that it can work out cheaper than excavation. Additionally, this is the quickest way to get them fixed. You only need to wait for the new lining to be sealed to the pipes and the holes and damage will be gone. There is also no destructive work to be carried out with relining; once the new material is in place you’ll never know the work was carried out.

The relining process involves the installation of a drain lining which bonds to the inside of the pipe, essentially creating a pipe within a pipe. The lining, usually made from flexible resin, through the pipework either using an inflated air bag to shape the lining to the internal walls, winched in, or forced into place using water pressure.

  • Drains checked for possible rodents

    Tim was fantastic. We were trying to find out whether rats were using the drains to gain access to our property. We had only moved into the property recently and Jon found a second manhole cover that we didn’t know existed. He was very thorough, even checking under the sink for signs of entry. He also gave us good advice regarding the Water Company’s responsibilities regarding the drains. There is only one company we would use again and that is MAINTAIN DRAINS.

  • Very professional job

    Main drain was blocked about 12 meters down the pipe. Tim quickly identified the problem working from both ends of the drain and the blockage was cleared in 30 minutes. Rather than jumping straight to the power jet, he carefully examined the pipe and realized that the pipe was slightly degraded and that drain rods would be the best solution to avoid further damage to the pipe. He explained everything he did and his reasons for doing so. Fixed price so no surprises. A very professional job performed by a genuinely nice man. I recommend this company without reservation.
