Complete Drain Repairs in Hertfordshire and London
Damaged drains that aren’t dealt with quickly can cause a great deal of damage to your property that can be costly to rectify. If an insurance company thinks you’ve avoided fixing drains when you knew there was an issue early on, they may even refuse to pay out. In our experience, and especially that of our customers, it’s always best to contact a drainage company, like Drain 365, as soon as you spot anything irregular with your drainage system.
Broken drains can cause a variety of problems for your property. Some problems may only seem minor but many can potentially be dangerous and could spiral out of control if not attended to. Damaged drains are a common cause of structural damage in both domestic and commercial properties. If not fixed promptly, a minor problem could develop into a bigger fault, putting your property at risk. For instance, a collapsed pipe could cause subsidence.
Whether you’re relying on a septic tank system, or your property is connected to the sewer mains, you need to make sure that your drains are working efficiently and correctly.

How Can Drains Become Damaged?
In addition to being blocked by waste, there are many ways in which your drains can sustain extensive damage. Drain repairs will be able to resolve most of these issues, but, in some cases, it is possible that drain pipes will need to be replaced instead.
Some of the most common kinds of drain damage your property is likely to suffer includes:
If a drain’s pressure spikes too high, or if the weight of the surrounding earth is too great, there is the chance that your drain pipes can collapse. Although your drains will be made of hard-wearing and damage-resistant metal, it is possible that they can collapse in on themselves over time.
This can be a major problem for your property. For example, it can allow water and waste to seep out into the surrounding soil. If this occurs close to your foundations, your property could become less stable. This can be extremely costly to repair if left unattended for any length of time. Drain repairs are essential in these situations.
Tree Root Ingress
A surprisingly common issue is when the roots of trees or plants enter the drains. Roots only need a small space to enter any drain pipe. They will detect the moisture within the pipe and grow towards it.
Once they are inside, these roots will quickly grow thanks to the moisture and nutrients in your wastewater. In some cases, these roots can cause immovable blockages or even cause the position of the pipe to shift.
Rats and other vermin love drains. Pipes are dark, warm and wet, which makes them the perfect location to set up a nest. Rats and other pests can cause a great deal of damage to your drains, and result in extensive damage to your property.
Not only can we provide pest control services to our customers, we can also provide solutions to prevent rats from entering the property in the first place. As they usually enter the building through the drainage system, stopping them from doing so can be an effective method in preventing infestations and nests which is why we fit rat blockers in the drainage pipes.
Blockages are one of the most common problems when it comes to drainage systems. Most commonly, these issues develop as the result of poor drainage care. Flushing the wrong materials down the toilet, or pouring the wrong things down your drain, can quickly lead to a blocked pipe.
Blocked pipes can expose other faults in the system, such as cracks, so not only could your property flood from a blockage, it could also put pressure on existing cracks and worsen the damage.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you repair a pipeline without excavating?
Our expert relining process allows us to obtain outstanding professional results without the need to destroy or disrupt the surrounding environment, allowing for a high-quality service, fantastic results, without the cost of hiring or using excavation tools and machines.
Our relining and patching process implements a PVC-coated, fibreglass reinforced, polyester needled felt tube that is filled up with liquid resin. From here, we insert this liner tube into your pipeline where we have the ability to invert (turn inside out) the tube and fill the pipe using a high-pressure air inversion unit. This consequently pushes the resin against the edges of the pipeline, filling in all the gaps, cracks and holes, creating an impenetrable seal of protection. We then set about removing the inner pipeline which results in a seamless, end to end PVC pipe with no join-lines. A high-quality finish that grants you the pipeline protection you need to keep things flowing smoothly.
Without the need for excavation, our team of experts is able to repair your pipe quickly and effectively whilst minimising the risk of damage to your land, property or other surrounding infrastructure. Not only does this cut costs dramatically, it enables you to enjoy your property without having to view unsightly signs of excavation, all while enjoying the perks of a fully operational drainage system.
What are the benefits of patching or relining a drain?
Whether there’s an internal problem or you’re simply interested in upgrading your existing network for maximum efficiency, there are a number of reasons why you should opt to have your drains lined.
By using our tried and tested processes, we are able to carry out our services with little or even no excavation, allowing us to be as cost-effective as possible. As drainage replacement can be a costly service, drain lining provides the desired results at a fraction of the cost. The result is a durable repair that extends the life of the pipe and provides a sealed, smooth surface for water and waste to flow against through the pipe.
