When sewers, drains or pipes have collapsed completely, it is not possible to use no-dig repair technology. Instead, we draft in our NRSWA (New Roads and Street Works Act) qualified civils team. They will excavate and replace the damaged sewer, and reinstate the affected area to as near its pre-work condition as possible – all with minimum disruption.
In some cases where a sewer requires repair but either excavation or a full reline would be excessive, we are able to ‘patch’ or ‘point repair’ instead. This involves installing a short liner in a precise section of the pipe by inflatable packer. The patch is then cured using thermal or ambient methods. Afterwards the repair is inspected using CCTV and lateral connections are re-opened before recommissioning the pipe for normal day-to-day use.
Safety adherence throughout.
