Portsmouth Drain Lining Experts

When your drainpipes begin to deteriorate, either from age or from external factors, it would be understandable to think that the only option available to you would be to replace those drains. However, drain replacement can be a costly and disruptive process, and should be considered only when no other option is sufficient. Fortunately, for just such a situation, there is drain lining. No1PHD have the latest drain lining technology and a team of Portsmouth-based experts ready to use it at your request. Call us on 01425 208031 today!

What is Drain Lining?

Drain lining is a revolutionary development in drain repair technology. It allows our No1PHD technicians to seal and reinforce a drainpipe from the inside, putting an end to any cracks and small holes that may have developed in the wall of the pipe. It also structurally reinforces the drain itself, and in many cases, the drain lining will be stronger than the pipe it is lining. This means that the drain lining process can greatly extend the life of an ageing drainpipe, perhaps even outliving the drain itself. That combined with the convenience factor of being able to carry out drain lining without having to excavate drainage pipes make it an ideal solution to drainpipe deterioration. To find out if drain lining is right for your situation, why not speak to one of our Portsmouth drainage experts?

How does Drain Lining Work?

The broad strokes of the drain lining process involve the insertion of a drain lining sleeve into your drain. Once in place, that lining is then expanded through the use of either high-pressure water or air, forcing the lining against the inner walls of the pipe. It is then left for some time (the exact amount of time will vary from job to job but as a rough guide, 24 hours) during which time it bonds to the pipe and cures. Once it has set, it will often be as strong—sometimes stronger—than the pipe it sits inside. The process will usually be carried out from one or two spots where access to the drain can be gained and requires very little disruption to your property. Especially when compared to other drain repair methods. Your No1PHD professional will be able to give you a better idea of exactly what will need to be done and how long it will take based on your specific circumstances.

What are the Advantages of Drain Lining?

Other than the aforementioned convenience factor of being able to carry out the procedure without significant disruption, and the resultant lining often being stronger than the drainpipe itself, drain lining can also remedy some issues that a perfectly healthy drain might face. Namely; tree root ingress. Even a healthy drain has seams where the sections of pipe are connected. Over time, tree roots can work their way through these seams (as well as any small cracks or holes that have formed) and cause blockages. Lined drains have no seams through which a root could find its way in, making it even more secure against external factors than the drain itself was when new!

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
