Pipe and drain line breaks and issues are a common form of damage to any building infrastructure. It happens due to improper line installation, tree root infiltration, pipe deterioration, and more. Regardless of the reasons, the damages in the drain and pipeline can make the functions of your home and business slowed or stopped.
Since most of the drain and pipelines are placed under the ground after digging it, drain relining and repairing the damages is not an easy task. Digging, sewer pipe relining and repairing is an expensive process and needs several days of work. This is where the pipe and drain relining process provides a simplified solution to the pipeline repairing needs.
Once a CCTV inspection has been conducted and the issues located, we then choose the best method of rectifying. This may be a Patch, junction liner or even one long continuous run.
Patching, in most cases requires two points of access to the drain. One point upstream of the break/defect and also one point downstream. We then build a bladder to suit the length needed and cut enough felt liner to cover the area by 500mm each side of the defect.
The liner is impregnated/filled with a two part epoxy resin and pulled over the bladder, we then use masking tape to roll up the liner and connect an air fitting to the bladder.
We pull the liner and bladder through the drain and use our cameras to line up the bladder with the defect in the drain, once the liner is in the correct spot we fill the bladder up with air and leave to set. After the liner has set, we deflate and remove the bladder, leaving a structural patch two times the strength of PVC in the drain.
MDR has the ability to reline junctions, Boundary traps, radius bends and even bridge gaps between pipes where the drain has been completely broken away.
