With drain relining the pipes will need to be de-scaled and then cleaned prior to being relined. There will be some electro machining and then some high pressure water jets, which will help remove the deposits of silt and scale. Once the pipes have been thoroughly cleaned, they’re ready to be relined.

The new lining is usually made of UPVC and is installed by a clever method of air inflation. The inflation tube will then be removed and the new lining will be cleaned so there’s no resin left behind.
