Benefits of Drain Linings


Drain lining can also be called no dig technology or trenchless repair. This is the quickest and most efficient method of repairing a drain or sewer. Basically, all it is, is a flexible lining that is installed to the inside of the drain or sewer line which adheres to the pipe itself. This reinforces the pipe and the integrity of the drain.

Drain lining can be used on small sewer line replacements that are only about 100mm in diameter all the way up to a huge 1.5 meter pipe.

Patch liners can also be used on the pipes which means that the entire pipe does not need repairing, just a small area and if the workers know where that area is, they can install a small piece of lining to that specific area.

This whole idea of drain lining came about in the 80s and the 90s but is rapidly growing in popularity due to its inexpensive nature, quick job and overall easy method of repair.
The benefits to doing this are not only the cost and ease. It also protects the landscape by eliminating the need to tear up all of the surfaces. This also means less work so it takes less time and offers less disruption to residents and businesses.

A liner can also easily go around bends, corners and joints due to being very flexible but without having any weak spots in the lining itself and it can be used on any kind of pipe material at all.

Putting in these drain liners will increase flow rates and allow for more water to pass through the pipes more quickly.

Because of fewer leaks and cracks, tree roots are not as attracted to the lining as they are the pipes themselves. The liners are sealed so it prevents tree roots from coming in.

There are many things the lining can be used for. If your toilet is not flushing properly or allowing enough water to refill the tank, maybe the pipes need some work. Same with the sink or shower, if draining seems to be taking a longer time than usual have a professional come and take a look at the pipes and see if lining them is something that would benefit you. He can check them by inserting a pipeline video camera into the pipe to find out what the problem is; if there is blockage or cracks, etc. These problems can be so frustrating especially when you can not seem to figure out what the issue is. Once you find out, it is such a breath of fresh air to be able to get it fixed.

So, in conclusion, now that you know all the benefits of drain lining, if you are having problems in your own home, do not hesitate to call on a professional who can bring his camera and look into the waste lines. You never know, it may be a very easy fix!
