Drain Repair
There are numerous ways that a drain can become cracked or damaged. In many cases, a drain may have only incurred minor damage like small cracks, unstable joints or tree root damage. Our drain repair experts can quickly fix this.

More and more technology is becoming available on the market, which allows drains to be repaired without having to dig up and disturb the ground. Drain relining is the most common type of no dig technology.

Drain relining consists of impregnating a polyester sleeve with resin and inserting it into the drain covering any cracks, holes, mis-aligned joints entry points for roots even rats. Then using air inversion or water inversion we inflate the sleeve.  The sleeve will harden over a few hours and allow us to remove the inflation hose leaving you with a sealed length of pipework with no joints.  You lose approximately 6mm diameter which will not affect the drain flow but you will gain effectively a new drain run.

Digging up the ground or excavating is usually the last resort when trying to clear a blocked drain, however sometimes this is the only way to repair the drain or solve the problem. If a drain has collapsed then excavating is usually the only option, unless diverting the drain would be easier and more cost effective.

When carrying out this type of work we use CCTV equipment to pinpoint the exact location of the blocked drain to ensure that the excavation is being carried out in the correct place with the depth being known before we commence work.  All excavations regardless of the surface ie tarmac, paving slabs, block paving or turf will be put back to the same levels and finishes the job began with.

Are my drain repairs covered by my home insurance?

Some home insurers might tell you that you have to use their approved contractor for any drain repairs, however, this is not necessarily true.

Your insurance policy provides financial compensation for costs incurred by you as a result of an insured peril. If you are the property owner, then legally you can insist on using an approved contractor of your choice, not necessarily the insurer’s choice.

What does a Drain CCTV Inspection Look Like?

Our colour CCTV can easily identify where a drain is broken, and more importantly how best to fix the problem.

If there is a structural problem within the drain, then there are two main options of repairing it. The first is by excavating and the second is by using no-dig technology.
