Drain Relining

What is drain relining?

Drain relining is the process of attaching a new drain lining to the inside of an existing pipe. This forms a protective coating that shields the existing pipe against cracks and other potential damage.

Drain relining is a cost-effective and no-mess alternative to traditional drain repairs. Our non-intrusive methods will ensure your drains are back to perfect working condition in no time and will remain free-flowing for years to come.

A repair to below ground drainage is a specialist job. Our trained technicians can replace damaged pipes and drains. Using our trenchless technology during the drain relining process, we take away the pain of having to dig up your newly laid drive or landscaped garden.

Here at Kent Drainage, we offer our drain relining services to both commercial and domestic clients throughout Kent and London.

The drain relining method

First, we remove and clean any blockages from the pipe. A flexible liner impregnated with resin is pushed through the drain, whilst an airbag is also pushed through to mould the resin to the pipe. The liner is heated, and once cooled will mould exactly to the sides of the original pipe. Once the airbag is removed, it leaves behind a smooth new pipe inside the original. This method avoids the major upheaval and logistical nightmare of excavating and replacing pipes.

Why choose drain relining over drain replacement?

  • It is cheaper
  • No digging is required
  • It creates less mess and disruption

You can also look at our Localised Structure Repair (LSR) service if you are looking to reline a smaller pipe. With LSR, we tend to work with pipework with a diameter of 100mm to 450mm and a length of 1 metre. If your drain has a wider diameter and length than this, drain relining is for you. We offer both LSR and drain relining throughout London and Kent.
