Drainage Repairs

Internal & External Drainage

A modern approach to Drain Repairs

Drainage repairs for partially collapsed pipes or misplaced joints needn’t be as difficult as you might think.
With patch repair liners and other modern techniques drain repairs can often be achieved without the need to dig large trenches or numerous holes.

This removes a lot of the disruption, fuss and costs that are often associated with drainage repairs.

Amongst the most common type of drain repairs are the installation of Pipe Liners, of the full replacing of drainage pipes. Both of which are offered by the team at Water Loss Solution. Find out more below.

Pipe Liners

Pipe liners are designed to seal leaks and cracks from inside the pipe. They can be inserted into existing pipes using cctv cameras to guide them into position. The pipe liners are then ‘blown’ into position using compressed air to seal a patch onto the inside of the existing defective pipe. Resin bonding agents are then allowed to cure and after a couple of hours the pipe repair is complete.

Pipe Replacement

Experience is needed to identify when small defects could indicate the start of a series of problems. In these circumstances the patch lining repair technique may not be cost effective in the long run. We will always advise our clients of the options within the available budget and any time limitations that might be ongoing. Domestic or commercial we have the ability to survey, assess and repair.
