What does pipe relining do?

Drain or pipe relining is a specialist, no-dig technology for repairing broken or damaged pipes. The process involves the installation of a lining that bonds to the inside of your pipes and creates a new pipe within the old one.

No excavation is required, making it the most efficient and cost-effective drain repair solution available and means a lot less mess and disruption for you and your family!

This method also allows access and repair of otherwise inaccessible pipes such as pipes under a building or deep in the ground.

The Pipe Relining Process

The first step is a CCTV drain camera inspection. We use this to pinpoint the exact problem areas needing attention and give a detailed diagnosis and report.

Following this, we use a high-pressure water jet to clean the existing pipework thoroughly. This ensures a clean and even surface on the internal walls of the pipe for best results.

There are several different methods of drain relining and repairs. These include spray lining, inversion, cure in place, patch lining and UV lining, among others. Our specialist plumbers will choose the best option for your particular job.

Once the lining is in place and curing time is complete, you will have structurally sound, good-as-new pipes!

5 easy steps to getting your damaged pipes relined

NO DIG, NO MESS

Don’t want your garden, floorboards or place of business closed and dug up to fix a damaged drain? Then pipe-lining is the solution you’re looking for. Using a portable pipe inspection camera, the problem can quickly be identified and fixed using access through the pipe itself. No dig means no mess and minimal disruption. The process is fast & safer than traditional pipe replacement methods.

Step 1

Our team do a careful inspection of the pipe using a CCTV camera to identify the problem.

Step 2

Once an inspection is completed, we do a thorough cleaning of the drain to prepare for relining.

NO HIDDEN COSTS

No excavation means no nasty surprises. There is no risk of accidentally finding or damaging other services or running into unforeseen challenges. This can add unexpected costs to the repair. Pipe-lining can add to the lifespan of your pipes, making it a great solution for both the environment and your budget.

Step 3

We then complete the installation of the epoxy resin liner into the problematic pipes.

Step 4

A bladder is inserted into the pipe and inflated, pushing the liner against the old pipe wall, while the resin sets.

A PERMANENT SOLUTION

Pipe relining is a permanent repair that is stronger than the original pipe and is not affected by household oils or chemicals. LCL pipe re-lining means we can repair small or large sections of pipework. This makes repairs economical as you only pay for sections of pipe that need to be repaired, not the entire length. LCL pipe re-lining creates a structural repair and can be used in other practical applications:

  • Close off unwanted connections
  • Create a pipe where the original pipe is missing
  • Smooth the transition of offset pipes

Step 5

The bladder is removed, and a final CCTV inspection is conducted to ensure the pipe is fully repaired.
