Drain lining is an innovative non-invasive approach to repairing damaged plumbing drains. Instead of having to dig deep into the drain to find the problem, access is gained by ground level and most repairs are done from within the drain itself. Drain lining as the name suggests is a material that is used in place of the traditional rubber or plastic drain liner that has been used in the past. This new innovation has revolutionised the plumbing industry. Not only is it more durable but it is also easier to install.
There are many types of drain lining options available. The most popular type is a flexible drain liner which is made from the same material used in making plastic pipes. Another option is to have a special sewer gas line called an exhaler fitted to the pipe that contains the gas to be flushed out through the drainpipe. A third option is to have the old plumbing line or pipe removed and replaced with a new one. This is also known as pipe relining.
Drain lining, like that from Wilkinson Environmental, not only ensures that drains are clean and free of debris but it also gives you peace of mind knowing that the pipes are in good working condition. It is a common occurrence for drains to develop small cracks or leaks. These often occur due to wear and tear and require immediate attention. When these leaks occur, it can be extremely embarrassing to have people visit your home in order to find the source of the leak. Having a reliable plumber on call is the best way to ensure that you never have to deal with such an issue again.
