Plumbing, heating and sewerage systems in a commercial or residential property can bring a lot of problems to owners due to the appearance of water leaks. Their occurrence can be due to a number of reasons. Timely elimination of the drain leak will help to avoid serious problems.

The craftsmen have sufficient experience and will be able to eliminate any drain leaks in the shortest time possible.
A qualified expert will promptly arrive at the address specified by you, and carry out work on relining sewer pipe up to the best standards in the industry. We can help you with a range of problems, such as a sink, mixer, bathtub, pipe or battery leaks in your house or apartment premises, at the most competitive prices in London. Contact us before a minor plumbing breakdown becomes a serious accident leading to an emergency. The specialist will carry out pipe repair in one of the following ways:
Leakage of a mixer, faucet, siphon, toilet bowl, sink in the bathroom or the kitchen is quite simple breakdowns, excluding the situations when the damaged section of the pipe is located inside the wall or ceiling. It is much more difficult to cope with leaks formed in hard-to-reach places; that’s when drain lining using high-quality, hard-wearing resins comes to the rescue. The qualified personnel of sewer pipe lining companies are ready to solve problems of any level of complexity, eliminating faults with a guarantee of quality. In emergency situations, the team will arrive within one hour after the application and fix the water leak using the drain lining method.
If we are talking about breakdowns of the main water distribution pipes or complex plumbing equipment, temporary measures will be taken initially. After the initial assessment, by agreement with the customer, the plumbers will return with all the materials that may be required and finally eliminate the leak. The employees of the company respond to a call promptly, performing the whole range of services in the field of drain lining. Even a small leak in the mixer or tap in the bathroom, as well as in the kitchen, can unexpectedly cause a fountain that will flood your apartment. Also, a leak can appear in heating pipes, radiators or a heated towel rail, and then you’ll have to deal with the consequences of boiling water, which is dangerous to health.
Currently, there are many options for drain pipes made of metal, plastic and metal-plastic. Despite the relatively short service life, steel pipes are widely used. Steel is susceptible to corrosion, and after 10-20 years of operation, steel pipes can leak. Such a problem occurs most often in the area of welds and bends. Corrosion of the pipe walls forms subtle damages such as pores cracks. Violation of the integrity of the drain pipe can often only be seen when water begins to seep through the crack. It is not always possible to immediately replace a faulty pipe, so drain lining with epoxy resin and fibreglass can be used to restore the working capacity of plumbing equipment. It should be remembered that the drain lining procedure will require at least two days because the resin must be allowed to harden. During the indicated period, it is preferable not to use the drain pipe. If possible, it is also better to drain the pipe before starting work.
The work on sealing the leak in the pipe with epoxy resin begins with cleaning the damaged area. At the same time, dirt, paint and rust must be removed from the pipe surface. A metal brush is used to clean the pipe. After cleaning the pipe surface, the specialist proceeds to seal the damaged area. The fibreglass is cut in such a way that the resulting tapes are twice the width of the pipe diameter, and the length of the tapes is enough for 5-7 turns. If there is an opportunity to purchase glass tape, it is preferable to use it for repairs. In cases where neither fibreglass nor glass tape is at hand, welding is an option. We advise against using natural linen or cotton fabrics for sealing a leak. Synthetic fabrics and synthetic fibre blended fabrics are also not suitable for epoxy applications.
To form a fibreglass bandage that will close the leak, it is necessary to apply epoxy to the prepared fibreglass tape and then wrap it tightly around the pipe. Epoxy resin is applied to the fibreglass with a spatula and the material is applied with it. Alternatively, the resin can be applied to the surface and the glass fabric wrapped over the glue layer, but you need to make sure that it is well embedded; for this, it is rolled with a roller or tapped with a brush. On each subsequent layer, except for the last, the resin is applied from above. When wrapping, the fabric is stretched and carefully pressed to the surface; such a practice is necessary to prevent the formation of bubbles, which will negate drain lining efforts. A metal clamp is applied to the formed bandage, tightening it with bolts. Instead of a clamp, a wire can be applied to a braid bandage. In such a state, the drain lining is left until the epoxy hardens.
The drain lining is a relatively time-consuming process. It is recommended not to use the repaired drain pipe for at least 36 hours. During the indicated period, the resin will be able to harden if the air temperature does not drop below 20 °C, but if the temperature is lower, it is better to extend the hardening period to 2-3 days. After the drain lining has hardened, you can start using the drain pipe, but it is recommended to run water into the pipe with caution, smoothly turning the taps, checking if the drain lining withstands the water hammer. In the future, you’ll be able to use the repaired drain without any restrictions.
