Drain repairs – our range of services

CCTV drain surveys are extremely useful and cost-effective for businesses and public sector organisations as well as domestic customers.

Drain repairs for localised damage

Localised damage, including small cracks or unstable joints, is often caused by a simple blockage. In many cases of localise damage, effective drain repairs can be provided with patching. The patch consists of a length of glass fibre matting, which is coated in resin. To install the patch, the matting is rolled around a “packer”, which is then pulled through the pipe and inflated, making the patch adhere to the pipe wall. Once the patch has cured, the packer is deflated and removed.

Drain repairs for multiple issues

When multiple problems are identified, too numerous to install localised patches, the most effective drain repair is a sewer lining. These type of drain repairs involved a resign-impregnated liner which is installed and cured using either an ambient, hot or ultra violet curing method. Alternatively, we can also apply our Ultracoat system, a structural epoxy spray coating application which be used to provide rehabilitation and structural reinforcement. It’s extremely durable and reliable with zero failures in the last 35 years.

Drain repairs for tree root damage

When a tree root penetrates a drain, this can cause extensive leakage and blockages within the pipe. Jet Aire can provide a variety of drain repairs, using the latest hydraulic root cutting equipment to remove any roots without damaging the pipe and eliminating expensive excavation.

Drain repairs for chambers and tanks

Chambers and tanks often have a build-up of product on the side walls and floor. Our drain repair method for this issue is simple and effective: we use ultra high pressure water jetting or shot blasting to remove the build-up.

Drain repairs for hard-to-remove items

On rare occasions, an item within a drain is causing a problem but cannot be removed using traditional high-pressure water jetting methods. In these cases, we can carry out the drain repairs with robotic cutting.

Common causes of problems requiring drain repairs

A variety of causes can create problems within drainage networks that may require drain repairs:

  • Blocked drains
  • Fractured pipework
  • Faulty fall gradients
  • Misaligned joints
  • Concrete or grout build-up
  • Poorly connected pipes
  • Tree root intrusion
  • Cooking fat build-up
