Professional Drain and Pipe Lining in Bristol and the South West


Drain lining is a trenchless pipe repair technique that addresses the challenges of damaged or deteriorating underground pipes without the need for disruptive excavation. This process involves inserting a flexible liner coated with a resilient resin into the existing pipe, which is then inflated and cured to create a seamless, durable inner lining. 

Typically employed when pipes exhibit issues such as cracks, leaks, root intrusion, or general deterioration, drain lining is a versatile solution suitable for both residential and commercial applications. One of its notable benefits lies in its non-invasive nature, eliminating the need for extensive digging and minimising disruption to the surrounding environment. Additionally, drain lining is a cost-effective and time-efficient method, providing a long-lasting, structurally sound pipe lining that extends the life of the system while maintaining optimal flow capacity. This technology has become increasingly popular for its environmental friendliness, reducing the ecological impact associated with traditional excavation methods.

    Drain Relining FAQs

    How long does the drain lining process take?

    The duration of drain lining can vary depending on factors such as the length and complexity of the pipe, as well as the specific lining method used. On average, it may take a day or two to complete the process.

    How much does drain relining cost?

    The cost of drain relining depends on various factors like the extent of damage, the size of the pipe, and the chosen lining material. Costs can vary, but in general, drain relining tends to be a cost-effective solution compared to traditional excavation and pipe replacement.

    What material is used in CIPP?

    The material used is a flexible resin-saturated lining tube. The most commonly used resin is an epoxy resin or polyester resin

    Can drain lining be used for both residential and commercial pipes?

    Yes, drain lining is a versatile solution suitable for both residential and commercial pipes. It can be applied to different pipe materials, including those found in homes, businesses, and industrial settings.

    Is excavation required for drain lining?

    In most cases, drain lining eliminates the need for extensive excavation. The process involves accessing the pipe through existing access points, reducing disruption to landscaping and structures.

    Does drain lining affect the pipe diameter?

    Drain lining typically has a minimal impact on the internal diameter of the pipe. Modern lining materials are thin but durable, ensuring that the restored pipe maintains adequate flow capacity.

    Can drain lining be done in bends and turns in the pipe?

    Yes, drain lining is designed to accommodate bends and turns in pipes. The flexibility of the lining materials allows for seamless application even in areas with multiple curves.

    Are there any limitations to drain lining?

    While drain lining is a highly effective solution, it may not be suitable for severely damaged or collapsed pipes. Additionally, the presence of certain obstructions or extensive root intrusion may require alternative repair methods.

    Is drain lining cost-effective compared to traditional pipe replacement?

    Yes, drain lining is often more cost-effective than traditional pipe replacement. It minimises the need for excavation, reduces labour costs, and allows for a quicker restoration of the drainage system, resulting in overall cost savings.
