Drains and pipes that are in need of repair can be a nightmare for homeowners. Traditionally, drain repair was a costly and time consuming process that caused great disruption. Thankfully, modern processes, like drain relining, mean that drains can be repaired without the need for a disruptive excavation.
What is Drain Relining?
Drain relining is a method of placing a new lining within a pipe without having to excavate or replace existing pipework. Drain relining companies use this process to ‘mould’ a new pipe onto a damaged one. This effectively repairs any damage within the drain quickly and with minimal disruption.
What are the Benefits of Drain Relining?
• Affordability: Because drainage pipe lining is a quick process that doesn’t require an excavation, it is much more affordable for the homeowner than other drain repair methods.
• Minimal Disruption: The process of drain relining requires very little surface and environmental disruption. It can be completely quickly without a homeowner’s garden and roads having to be dug up.
• Resistant to Leaks and Root Intrusion: The drain relining process has the effect of ‘strengthening’ the existing pipe. The relining is moulded to the contours to the pipe, making it more resistant to leaks and intrusion from surrounding roots.
• One Day Installation: Because pipe relining is such a quick process, drains can be restored to full working order in as little as one day. Again, this keeps disruption for the homeowner to a minimum.
