We deal with all aspects of drain repairs including:
Drain Repair Techniques
Essentially there are two types of drain repairs; excavation and replacement or no-dig lining techniques. Most drains can be repaired using one of these two methods, including vitrified clay, cast iron, concrete, pitch fibre and UPVC.
Both of these drainage repair options require the drain to be cleaned using high pressure water jetting methods before the drain repairs are made. This serves to ensure that the surface of the pipes are clean.
Drain Repairs By Excavation & Replacement
To work properly, drains and sewers must be in a good condition and any damage to your drains will need to be repaired. Direct Drain Services engineers are experts in replacing cracked, broken or collapsed pipes.
After an initial investigation to determine the nature of the fault and the drain repairs required our drain engineers will advise you as to what the necessary repairs involve. This will include the extent of the work and an estimate of how long it will take to complete the repairs and return your drains to a watertight free flowing condition. The engineer will endeavour to resolve your drainage problems as swiftly as possible with the minimum amount of disruption to your premises.
Drain Repairs By No-dig Lining Techniques
Wherever possible our drain engineers will complete your drain repairs using no-dig lining methods. This type of repairs causes minimal disruption and is more cost effective, while still ensuring that drains are watertight and free flowing.
A CCTV drain survey will normally be performed to confirm the structural condition of the drain and our drain experts will be able to advise which type of lining works are required to complete the repair. If single or isolated structural faults exist then patch lining methods may be recommended. If the entire drain between two points is damaged then a full Cured In Place Liner (CIPP) will be necessary.
