Cracked Pipe Repair

Where possible we will repair cracked and damaged underground pipes using a Structural Lining process, as this avoids the need for excavation.

This process involves pinpointing the area of damage using our CCTV inspection cameras, then inserting a liner into the pipe at the point of damage, effectively giving you a new pipe inside the old one.

 

This process is particularly effective if the pipe is damaged with cracks or fractures, or affected by dropped joints and root ingress - most common with clay pipework. 

Excavating the ground to access a damaged pipe is usually the last resort when trying to solve this problem. However, sometimes this is the only way. If a drain has collapsed,for example, then excavating is the healthiest option.
