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.
Drain lining process is commonly referred to as ‘No dig’ technology. Since it allows us to repair damaged drains, pipes and sewers without having to dig and cause unnecessary disruption. It’s the most cost effective and convenient method available for repairing drains by far.
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.
This can be applied to pipes with diameters as small as 100mm in diameter, all the way up to 1500mm diameter.
