New advances in technology are making it easier than ever before for homeowners, landlords and businesses to keep their drainage systems in good repair. At one time, a cracked or burst drain would have meant days or weeks of disruption as workers armed with heavy excavation equipment tore through the site to access the scene of the problem. But now, thanks to high tech Drain Lining Solutions, most damaged drain pipes can be repaired in situ rather than having to be completely replaced, an outcome which is more convenient and cost effective for everyone.
Drains can be damaged by a number of different factors, frost action, land movement, and incursions by tree roots being just a few of them. Modern drain pipe materials are better than old ones, but no matter how good the builders were damage can still occur over time. If you are responsible for the maintenance of a property dating back to the 1960s or before, it may be that the drains were laid before building regulations were even introduced.
Just like an old pair of boots, a building`s service infrastructure can start to wear out from underneath even while everything above seems to be in good working order. And when your drainage system at home or at work starts to wear out, it can manifest itself in a number of ways. The question is, what can you do about it?
The first step is to get in touch with a professional drainage contractor like Flowrite Drainage. We can investigate and quickly diagnose the problem, providing a free, no obligation quotation for full repairs. Now, here`s the interesting bit. As well as drainage consultancy, we also install drain lining systems to repair most failed drains without removing so much as a spadeful of earth.
How Does Drain Lining Work?
How does drain lining work? Drain lining systems are a little like keyhole surgery for your drains. The first step is to locate the site of the damage. Using high pressure jetting equipment and an underground CCTV system, the drain lining company will inspect your pipework from the nearest drain access point. Upon confirming that the drain has failed and is suitable for drain lining, a flexible liner will be prepared and inserted into the pipe from the existing manhole. The liner is then inflated so that it sticks to the existing walls of the pipe.
Drain lining systems cannot be used in every single situation, but in the majority of cases they make the job much quicker and less disruptive than repairing a drain by conventional methods. Plus, when you choose a professional drain lining company like Flowrite, you have the benefit of all their other methods and expertise to help you get the job done.
How Much Does Drain Lining Cost?
How much does drain lining cost? Of course, the cost of the repairs depends on the circumstances. But thanks to the low-impact nature of drain lining solutions, they always work out cheaper than a traditional repair.
