Drain Lining

Drain Lining is an affordable alternative to excavation if your drains are cracked or disjointed.

At times, there is no other option but to dig down to the underground drains to cure damaged drains, but in many scenarios DS Serve can use the latest trenchless drain lining technologies meaning the drain repair is carried out much quicker and cheaper with minimal disruption to the surrounding areas such as your lawn or paved/tarmaced driveway.  Often you will be able to use your drain the same day following lining.

The drain lining methods which we use are a way of permanently stopping water seepage, repairing your drains and sewers, which ultimately strenghtens your pipes and increase waterflow (by reducing friction) through your drains.

DS Serve will normally access the affected underground drain pipes from through the manhole.   We then inserted a wetted-out lining into the drain, which our specialist drain lining engineers then inflate to make it bond with the inside of the underground drain pipe.  It is left to cure (dry out and take shape) and in a matter of hours the lining has formed a full strength new ‘pipe’ lined within the old pipe.

We can usually apply a drain lining to all pipe sizes between 75mm to 1200mm.  Depending on your property's drain scenario, the best installation option for the drain relining could be via cold cure, hot cure or via winch drag-in, in the case of blind shot inversions.


Patch Lining

End-to-end lining is not always the best option for your drains, so in cases where a patch liner is cheaper or generally more suitable, this option would be used.   Simply speaking, with the help of a CCTV camera we would put the patch on the inside of the drain, just as you would put a patch on your bike as a kid.  The patch is cured once in place and the damaged section of your drain is now relined and as good as new.  Perfect solution when it appears that the drain is only damaged or cracked in a small area.


Approved Quality

We use the best quality materials - drain liners that can go around bends without wrinkling & drain liners that can change diameter halfway along a drain and then revert to the previous diameter further along as necessary.

All our materials are WRc approved and are installed under the Water Industry Specification (WIS) for Cure In Place Pipes (CIPP).  All of our Engineers from our Lining Division are trained to comply with the latest health and safety methods for drain lining & relining and are CSCS and Confined Space trained.
