What's behind the method of drain relining?

A professional drainage service will carry out drain relining. This is a process where a resin flexible liner is pushed through a drain, and an air bag is pushed through to help mould the resin to the drain pipe. The flexible liner is heated, and once it's cooled it will mould to the shape of the pipe. The air bag is removed and the pipe will now have smooth new lining.

Before drain relining starts all of the pipework is washed out with a high pressure water jet to clean out any debris before anything is started. A camera will mark out the location of adjoining pipes to the main after which the correct length is marked out, depending on the pipe. Of course different types of lining can be used which means it's an extremely versatile method.
