Needing to repair a drain is going to happen to you at some point as natural wear and tear goes on, so how does drain lining help?

Metro Rod North London are your local drainage experts who like things to be done right and to the highest standards so you don’t have to worry. We know that when it comes to drain repairs it can cause some panic. Drain repairs lead many to believe that as most of the pipes are underground it will require excavating to reach the problem. But with our advanced drain lining methods we no longer need to do this. 

Drain lining and patching is a minimally invasive way of repairing defects in our drains below the ground. We have 2 different versions of drain lining, ambient cured lining and heat cured lining. After the situation has been assessed our engineers will decide which method to use. 

  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.

When Would Drain Lining Not Be Possible?

There are some instances when main lining is just possible and to carry out the repair, an engineer will need to excavate the area. If it is the case that a section of the drain needs to be replaced we will need to dig down. This would happen if we are dealing with a collapsed drain. 

What Are the Benefits of Drain Lining

The benefits of using these methods are fairly simple, it is less invasive than old fashioned method of excavating to reach the repair site and therefore much less expensive and time consuming. It means our engineers do not need to spend time digging out the drain which means you are spending less on man hours and equipment costs. This will also be much nicer for you as you don’t have to deal with the disruption caused by excavating.
