Drain lining is a non-invasive repair technique we use at Metro Rod Glasgow, but what are benefits of doing it this way.

News Patch Lining

After finding out you need a drain repair you may be worrying about what this means and entails. Many people will automatically assume that because the drains are located below the ground that we will need to excavate around the issue in order to fix it. This would obviously cause a lot of disruption but fortunately for you Metro Rod use non-invasive drain lining and patching techniques. 

How does it work?

If you have a leaking, cracked, damaged pipe that needs a repair you’re going to want a reliable fix to avoid the problem reoccurring. At Metro Rod we use 2 primary drain lining methods to repair a drain depending on the problem and situation at hand. 

  1. Ambient Cured Lining - this is used for partial or full relining of sewers and drains to cover the defects, perfect for small sites such as a domestic property. The actual repair is done with resin which is manoeuvred into place using pressure, which then self-cures in ambient temperatures. 
  2. Heat Cured Lining - this method is more common for industrial sites and large commercial premises to line the full length of the drains and pipes. The resin in this method is installed using the inversion method. When it is in place water is heated up inside the pipe so that the curing process can start. 

What Are The Benefits?

  1. Non-invasive - our engineers don’t need to waste time digging down to the problem, instead they can start fixing it from above ground. This means you don’t have to worry about diggers and other machines coming and digging around your property.
  2. Less time consuming - with the engineers no longer needing to excavate the problem, there is less man hours needed to install the drain lining.
  3. Less expensive - as this method requires less time and equipment it makes it far less expensive compared to if we were to excavate to reach the problem.
