We are specialists in unblocking and fixing drains
permanently, quickly and affordably. We understand that when you have a blocked drain
, you are at your wits end, having tried a variety of methods over time – some worked for a while, others didn’t.
As you may already know, blockages in pipes, such as your sewer and stormwater drains or downpipes, are an unpleasant fact of life, and usually strike us at the worst possible times!
These blockages are generally caused by excess or the wrong types of paper, grease and fats poured down a sink, leaves and detritus improperly filtered, and that old favourite – tree roots working their way through broken or old clay pipes!

How does our system work?
Before any relining takes place, the drains must first be inspected and surveyed. We use a pipe camera to identify and locate the cause of the problem. The drain is then cleared using high pressure water jets; once the blockage is cleared the pipe is then ready for the liner installation.
Our liner is custom made from fabric that is impregnated with specially formulated two part epoxy resin that sets hard, becoming a structural repair, in a matter of hours allowing minimal disruption and inconvenience.
Once the liner is tailor made and prepared, it is inserted in to your drain via any opening in the drain. It is positioned in place with a camera and inflated, forcing the liner to take the shape of the pipe filling voids or cracks and lining over any damaged section. After a curing period, the internal bladder of the liner is removed, completing the process and making the drain ready for use immediately.
On completion of all work carried out, you will have an installation guarantee and a limited manufacturer’s product warranty of 50 years.
