Drain Relining Or Pipe Leak Repairs
If you have you been told that you need excavation work to remedy your drain problems, make sure that the advice is coming from a reputable and drainage company. Here at Reading Drain Services, we will only recommend excavation when there is absolutely no alternative. The cost of excavation together with
inevitable disturbances can be most concerning. Whenever possible we prefer to rectify any damaged or collapsing drains by way of drain relining and repair.
Drain relining, also known as trenchless drain repair is the most efficient and cost-effective solution for pipe leak repairs or after using the drain jetter for roots in drains removal or drain clearance. It eliminates the use of diggers or jackhammers which minimises the cost and the disruption to you. Once the existing pipes have been successfully cleared we can fix your broken or leaking drain pipe by inserting new linings into the pipe, no matter what type, size or length the sewer pipe is. Your pipes are repaired by feeding a liner that is impregnated with epoxy resin into your drain on an inflatable device, once it is in place then, the device is inflated to hold the lining in place until the patch cures. Once the machine is removed you are left with a smooth, watertight and permanent drain repair.
