Pipework Equipment Drain Cleaner

A popular drain repair service Metro Rod offers is a “no dig” repair. As the name suggests, this repair does not require excavations and instead encompasses various lining techniques. The result is a speedy and reliable fix it cost affective.

Metro Rod has developed and perfected these techniques over the last 25 years and have a number of options for materials to give the most cost effective and efficient solution.

No-Dig Repair options vary depending on the application, but they all involve inserting a liner into a drain which is impregnated with resin. The liner is moved into position, whether it is local or full length, and then inflated to give a water tight repair by effectively making a thin strong layer inside the existing drain. When the required cure time has elapsed, the means of inflating the repair is removed to restore the full drain function and integrity.

Localised Structural Repairs (LSRs)

  • Patch Liners – This localised repair offers a cost-effective solution to fix individual defects within a drain or sewer.
  • Ambient Cured Lining – Ambient cured lining consists of the full or partial lining of sewers or drains to cover multiple defects.
  • Heat Cured Lining – This is like Ambient cured lining; however, Heat Cured Lining is predominantly used for larger diameter pipes or where an increased resistance to chemical attack is required.
  • Excavation – Excavation is the traditional method of drain repair and replacement and a technique used for new drains, drain replacement, to rectify collapsed drains or to gain access to lining repair

All of this means that we are able to conclude each of our inspection reports far more quickly than before, allowing us to closely evaluate the problem and report back to you on the most effective solutions to your problem.
