How do I know if my drain is in need of repair?

If you suspect that you potentially have a blocked or damaged drain that needs professional drain repair, you should look out for the following telltale signs:

  • Your sink, shower, bath and toilet may be draining slower than usual, or not at all

  • There is an unusual foul odour lingering in your home

  • You can hear gurgling sounds from your drains, plug holes, toilet flushes and pipes

All of these signs may indicate drainage problems, ranging from a blocked drain to cracked pipes, or even a fully collapsed drain. To learn more about how to tell when you have a problem, take a look at our guide to detecting signs of a blocked drain.

Expert Drain Relining

Traditional repair involves digging up large sections of pipework, which may cause considerable disruption for a business. Here at Lanes, we use no-dig drain relining techniques as our default method for the repair and renovation of commercial drains, as an effective and proven means of avoiding this inconvenience.

What is No-Dig Drain Relining?

Our commercial drain relining services utilise no-dig methods that allow us to fix cracked or damaged pipes without having to break ground. It addresses the immediate problem while reducing future maintenance in a way that is both cost-effective and convenient.
The relining process involves bonding a drain lining to the inner surface of the damaged pipe, creating a new pipe inside the old one. This works in vertical or horizontal pipes and can be applied to pipes with diameters as small as 100mm, or as large as a 1,500mm culvert.
You can learn more about the specifics of the process by downloading our best practice guide to drain relining.

How much does drain relining cost?

Our commercial drain pipe lining services are priced competitively, with each job scoped according to factors such as the condition and type of pipe, the accessibility of the site, and so on. In each case, we ensure the cost is tailored to your organisation’s budget and practical needs.

How long will the replacement last?

We test our lining materials for a minimum of 1,000 hours to ensure that they meet the WRc (Water Research Centre) 50-year design life criteria. However, since we also incorporate a x2 safety factor, the life expectancy of our liners is doubled to around 100 years. For further assurance, our installations are independently verified by Exova to ensure the very highest standard of quality and performance.
