Drains are never an easy prospect when it comes to replacing or repairing them. Getting at a buried pipe is no small task, and repairing it can be a logistical nightmare. Digging up your drains is not the only way to repair them, however. Drain lining technology allows No1PHD to repair your pipes in-situ, without ever placing so much as a shovel on your garden lawn. You can give us a call on Southampton; 08006906777 to talk about lining your drains and potential other drainage issues you might have, and solutions we can provide.
Drain lining is the process of inserting a sleeve of a specially engineered material into your drain. Once in place, we apply pressure, using water or air, to expand this sleeve until is pressed against the inner walls of your drain. It is then left to cure for some time (typically around 24 hours but times may vary), and that is it! Once it has cured, it is often stronger than the pipe in which it is lining. A similar process can be applied to smaller drains, such as the ones found in a home. This is commonly referred to as patch lining.
To begin with, as mentioned above, drain lining is quite often more structurally sound than the pipes it is lining. Especially in the case of very old drains. It would not be surprising to find many lined drains have perished before their lining did. Another benefit to drain lining is it prevents root ingress. Small cracks, holes, and deterioration at the joints can all allow plant roots to force their way into the drain where continued growth can cause a blockage. With our Southampton drain lining services, there are no seams or cracks with which a root can slip through. It doesn’t just keep water in, it keeps everything else out!
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

If you have some kind of drain issue—a blockage or leaking, for example—it will be necessary for your No1PHD professional to ascertain the cause of the problem (likely using a CCTV Survey) and decide if drain lining is the best course of action. Drain lining is ideal for taking care of small cracks and holes in drain pipes, however it can also just be used as a preventative measure. No drain is built to last forever, and if your drains have been down there for a while, it may be time to start thinking ahead. Having your drains lined will greatly extend their operational life. This is but one of the many drainage services we offer Southampton residents, both domestic homeowners and commercial premises.
The exact time a drain lining procedure takes will vary from job to job, of course, but many drain lining procedures can be complete within a few hours, with some of them requiring the lifting of a manhole cover and some expert drainage techniques with tools designed especially for this job. Of course, there is still a curing period, so while the work might possibly only take a few hours, the drain will be out of commission for roughly a day. You will be able to discuss the specifics of lining your drain with us when you call.
Whether you’re looking to have a drain fault repaired and think that drain lining is the way to do it, or you just want the peace of mind in knowing that your drains structurally sound and leak-free for many years to come, contact our Southampton drainage experts No1PHD today on; 08006906777 and one of our experts can discuss your needs.

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.
