Drain Relining

Here at 24hr Emergency Services, we have the experience and expertise to provide an impressive drain relining service. We are the only company you will need to call for this solution.

While bad smells and standing water are clear indicators of a drainage issue, their absence doesn’t necessarily mean that everything is fine. In fact, some issues can be very hard to detect, but if left unchecked can develop into more serious problems that are costly to put right.

When there is a problem with your pipes, it can often be difficult to know what kind of service you will benefit from the most. However, whether as a preventative measure or a means of drain repair, drain relining is a highly cost-effective way to keep your drains in full working order.

What is Drain Relining?

Drain relining is a cost-effective and non-destructive method that reinforces a pipe, seals any fractures or breaches and extends the life expectancy of the pipe by 50 years or more. We are essentially creating a pipe within a pipe, so there is no digging or excavating required. Instead, the process can be carried out quickly and with minimal disruption to you or anyone else. This makes it a popular choice for business owners as it minimises any enforced downtime.

Drain relining is a process where a liner that has been impregnated with a special resin is inserted into the affected pipe. The liner is inflated and heated allowing the resin to adhere and set to the inside of the original pipe. Once set, the liner acts like a protective barrier that shields against cracks, pests and other damage while restoring the pipe to full working order.

Depending on where the drains are located, relining will be carried out using one long lining piece or several smaller sheets overlapping one another. If you have a straight run of pipe work and there are no junctions or sharp bends, then a full repair can be achieved without digging.


A CCTV drain survey always precedes the process of drain relining. Such a survey allows us to get inside the pipes and inspect the problem from the inside without having to dig up the pipework. The survey will reveal any issues, both current and potential, no matter how hard-to-spot they may be. This method is great for highlighting hairline fractures, large cracks and breaches, pest infestation and much more.

The inspection stage is important, as it is crucial for the internal wall of the drains to have a clean and even surface for the lining to attach to. It is also a good idea to use the CCTV technology through the actual drain relining to ensure it runs smoothly.

Drain Jetting

Once the survey is completed, you will be supplied with the relevant images, a full damage report and a quotation for the repair work. Before we can insert the new liner, the drain must be cleared, a process that we achieve through drain jetting. Drain jetting involves spraying water through the pipes at a pressure high enough to dislodge any blockages leaving the pipes nice and clean.

While drain rods can be great at clearing a blockage close to the toilet, a drain jetting hose can extend much farther down your pipes, negotiate bends, and exerts more force. Drain jetting is compatible with most kinds of drains and can remove most blockages. From tree roots and waste to fat, scale or grease, this technique can clear it.

Drain relining is a highly versatile technique that can be used in pipes of all sizes, even ones as small as 50mm in diameter. The process is quick and easy and what’s more, will last for many years to come.

Inserting the Liner

A lining that consists of a special resin is carefully inserted into the pipework. Once inserted, it is inflated using either an airbag or water pressure to force it into place. Either method will cause the lining to shape to the interior walls of the pipe. After the lining has been inflated, hot water or UV lighting will be used to cure the resin causing it to harden forming a new inner pipe. The airbag will then be carefully removed.

The lining isn’t designed to just protect and repair, it also aids water flow with its low friction surface. If you’re experiencing drainage issues and suspect the problem could be due to your pipework, do not hesitate to get in touch with 24 Hour Emergency Services today for immediate results.

The Benefits To Drain Relining

There are many benefits to drain relining. The most significant benefit is the ability to repair underground systems with minimal to no excavation required. Another benefit is that it salvages drain systems. The liner will recreate a new pipe to salvage your drain system, repairing cracked, damaged or broken sections. This technique fits all size pipes, doesn’t require special handling for different size pipes and can go around 45 and 90 degree bends.

Pipe lining is an environmentally friendly solution. By permanently fixing your drainage system, you are stopping sewerage from entering the landscape and causing water pollution. This solution saves you time and inconvenience. Whereas before you would have to excavate and replace your pipes, causing disruption and days of work, this method is quick and simple.

Additionally, pipe relining is a permanent solution that increases the lifespan of your pipes. It is also less expensive than a full excavation and replacement of your drainage system.
