Drain Lining

Drain lining is quick, effective and saves the hassle of digging up driveways and gardens. It is a no-dig technology, and as the name suggests, it involves lining the inside of a drain with polymer lining (looks like a huge sock), that bonds to the inside of the pipe. In some cases, the whole length of the drain will not require lining and in those instances, we do something called “localised structural repair” or “patch lining”.

Drain patching and lining works are guaranteed to last up to 50 years.

When and how will I know if I need the drain lined?

A simple CCTV inspection can determine if there are any issues with the drainage system, and whether or not localised structural repair is required. Ground movement can be one cause of the damage to the pipework, along with vegetation root ingress. Drain lining helps to fix, prevent and protect pipes.

How does drain lining work?

Upon arrival we will carry out high pressure water jetting to the problematic drain to ensure it is clear of any blockages. Further CCTV inspection will be carried out. The next stage then is where our drainage engineer’s expertise and skills really do come into their own.

A flexible liner impregnated with resin will be inserted into the drain, whilst an airbag “packer” is pushed through and inflated to the size of the original pipework. The liner is then heated and cooled which cures the liner to the sides of the pipework. Once removed, further CCTV inspection is carried out and a smooth new pipe is inside the original…”Magic”.

Before instructing anybody to carry out these works to your premises be sure to check their qualifications and credentials. It is always good to ask around as somebody maybe able to recommend a local independent drainage specialist.
