M R Drains Ltd use drain lining (no dig technology) , which is an innovative method of repairing your broken drain without the need to dig up your driveway, patio or garden. You can read more about this method on our Drain Lining page.
Collars are the weak point in the drain run, after years of natural ground movement, collars open and effluent flow seeps in to the surrounding sub soil, and eventually there is a void, no support beneath areas of pipe-work.
Mother nature then starts, tree root ingress grow to moisture, so with warm water from baths showers house hold waste, also there is no frost at the depths of running sewers. Drains are then blocked and damaged due to heavy tree root ingress.
All drains should be checked by CCTV Drain Surveys to ascertain the condition, with our drain lining method, to prevent further deterioration to existing pipe-work.
Where possible we will mix both methods together, for example we will just dig out and replace the part of the pipework that is beyond repair and then line the rest. This saves our customers money on new pipework and the inconvenience of having more of their property excavated than necessary.
