For years Metro Rod have been using non-invasive drain lining and patching techniques for drain repairs.

When people hear they need a drain repair they often panic that it will be a huge disruption as the majority of the drainage system is located underground making it hard to reach. With our drains being essential in our lives it is unavoidable that when they break down it needs to be repaired as soon as possible. That’s where Metro Rod Mid Wales can help with our reliable no-dig drain repairs. 

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.

The benefits are two fold; it is non-invasive as the engineers no longer need to dig down and excavate the drain to reach the problem. It is far less messy to simple insert the patch and then have to cover the defects. Secondly, as there is no need to excavate it is far less time consuming and also less expensive. We don’t need to use expensive heavy machinery and are engineers can quickly perform the fix without wasting time on the excavation. 

There can be a few occasions when a lining cannot be used to repair a drain for example in the event of a collapsed drain. In this case an excavation would be necessary to complete the repair.
