CIPP Repair – Drain Lining London
Whenever a drainage system suffers damage, it is important that it is repaired as quickly as possible to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your system.
At Drain 365, we can provide industry-leading Cured-In-Place Pipe Repair, also known as drain lining, in London. We can deliver this highly-effective treatment to all kinds of domestic and commercial drains as a cost-effective and efficient alternative to drain replacement.
Drains that have suffered minor cracks and damage can benefit from CIPP repair with either the resin drain lining inserted throughout the length of a pipe or a shorter patch repair without the need for excavation. This long-lasting repair is a favourable and popular method of drain repair in instances where the damage isn’t severe enough to warrant a drain replacement, saving you both time and money without the disruption which excavation can cause.
Complete Drain Lining Services for Drainage Repairs
In the past, drainage engineers have been forced to excavate large sections of the ground to access drain pipes. Not only did this take a great deal of time, but it cost a lot and required a high level of disruption on the property. In many cases, these projects were made even more difficult as the large-scale machinery required couldn’t access many properties.
As technology has increased, this major project has been reduced to a relatively simple one. Thanks to drain lining, our professional team of drainage engineers can resolve all manner of cracked drains with a minimum of disruption and costs to the property owner.

What is Drain Lining?
Our experienced team of engineers will be able to conduct drain lining repairs in London on damaged pipelines using high-quality, hard-wearing resins. This solution will be moulded within the pipeline to replace the damaged pipe and ensure complete reliability of the entire system.
Using a specialist system which control air pressure within the drain, the resin mould fills in any cracks, gaps or other holes in your system. This creates a seamless, joint-free and watertight pipe which is invulnerable to many kinds of damage pipes commonly suffer from. These solutions can last for many, many years before they will require any additional treatment.
What’s The Drain Lining Process?
Here at Drain 365, the first thing our engineers will do is to conduct a thorough assessment of your drains. This will let us know exactly what kind of problems need resolving within your drainage system. Our engineers will use CCTV drain survey equipment to identify blockages, cracks and other kinds of damage that requires repair or attention.
Using a high pressure water system, known as drain jetting, we will clear all types of debris and blockages from your drains. This can include:
- Solid Blockages
- Fats, Oils and Greases
- Tree Roots
Once your pipes have been cleared of fats, mineral deposits and debris, we will have a smooth and clean surface to work with. Ensuring the pipework is clean before inserting the lining can improve the finished product and ensure that the plastic forms in the correct space and shape.
Our engineers will then coat the damaged areas of your pipe with our high-quality resin. This resin has been specially formulated to bond to your existing pipeline and create a long-lasting, reliable surface. As soon as the resin has been applied, we will insert a specially-designed rubber tube into your drains. This is then inflated, which forced the resin into the shape of your pipe.
For all practical purposes, drain lining creates a hard-wearing plastic pipe within your existing drainage system. This treatment is specially formulated to help prevent further damage and deliver many years of hard-wearing service to your property.
Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation in London
Type of Liners Used
- Drag liner: This is a standard drag in liner used to line between manholes and up to gullies and soil vent pipes.
- Invert Liner: Invert liners are used to blow into pipelines normally used for long length runs and blind shots.
- Super-flex Liner: A very flexible liner which is used to invert round tight angled bends. Also used to invert down to blind shots.
- Brawo Liner: This is the most expensive line on the market and is used in schools, restaurants and factories. The special characteristics of this liner is that it can traverse multiple bends and pipe size changes. It can also withstand some harsh chemicals.
Type of Resins Used
- Polyester: resin is the cheapest resin on the market. Polyester resin his emits a strong smell for sometime after the liner has been installed. This resin is communally used on domestic repairs.
- Epoxy: A mid range cost resin with low to no-odour that is normally used on patch repairs. This resin is stronger than polyester.
- Silicate: This more expensive low odour resin which can be used in schools or food premises. This is the strongest of the three resins, but can be installed over longer lengths.
- Brawoliner Resin: Comes in six different designs. Brawoliner resin is the most expensive liner but it is environmentally friendly and can restore the system back to a water tight condition. It is also odourless.
- Brawo AC this is used for short sections and can be cured in hot or cold weather.
- Brawo TC is suitable for long length liners.
- Brawo RR is extra quick set 2-part epoxy resin
- Brawo HT is specially formulated to use within buildings
- Brawo 1 is a fast curing resin
- Brawo 111 is also effective on long length liners
Is Drain Lining Suitable for Any Property in the UK?
As this is such as simple and effective solution, CIPP repairs and patch lining can be used in domestic, commercial and industrial pipework. The finished product will be extremely resilient to all kinds of damage and deliver many years of service. The plastic pipes that our engineers will mould can deal with all the pressures that your previous pipes had to undergo and deliver a reliable service for many years.
Post Work Analysis
To ensure the work has been carried out properly, leaving you safe in the knowledge that your damaged pipe will no longer be a problem, our trained technicians will then re-insert the CCTV rod, allowing them to clearly assess the work that was carried out, guaranteeing structural integrity and the quality of the set.
Throughout the plumbing and drainage industry, it has been proven time and time again that relined pipes are far stronger than original pipelines and can last years without any significant or problematic damage.
Is This Technique Also Used For Drain Repairs?
It is indeed! If your pipeline has suffered damage caused by external elements, such as the ones listed above, you may not need a full pipe relining service, just patch repairs to maintain the integrity of your existing pipeline.
Patch repairs are much more cost effective solution to relining an entire pipe as we can only target the damaged areas, leaving you with a corrected pipeline in minimal time, cost or work.
We follow the exact same process as the relining method, but instead of relining the entire pipe with resin, our technicians only target the damaged areas, leaving you with a pipeline that can last years without any problems.
All the work is carried out by trained and highly qualified drainage technicians that have years of experience behind them.
