When it comes to drain repairs you may have heard of drain lining but what actually is and what are the benefits?

MetroRod drain lining

Repairing drains and be worrying and expensive as we all rely on fully functioning drains every day. You may be thinking that with the majority of your drains lying under the ground a drain repair will require digging down and causing a lot of disruption to your property. Fortunately for you, Metro Rod Northampton use non-invasive techniques via drain lining. 

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.
