Do your drains need relining? 4 ways to tell immediately with Drain Defence


Having dealt with thousands of blocked drains, one thing that comes up fairly often at Drain Defence is that our client’s drainage systems are in urgent need of relining.

If your drainage systems are worn out through constant use over many years, or stretched and cracked through the changing of the seasons, this could cause a myriad of issues that will increase the likelihood of blockages and leakages, making your drain less efficient and causing other nasty side effects too.

If any of these 5 tell-tale signs sound like your drainage systems, then don’t hesitate to call Drain Defence, your local, experienced drain management service. Get in touch on 0800 464 0430 today.

What is drain relining?

Drain relining is the process of repairing worn out, broken or damage drain piping, through cleaning, descaling and efficiency improvements using a number of specialised tools and techniques.

Beginning with CCTV-Investigation, our team opens up the drains and diagnoses the issue with speed and efficiency, so they can get on with the job at hand.

What are the tell-tale signs that you might require our CCTV Investigation service?

Gurgling noises

The first noticeable sign that your drain needs relining is gurgling noises. Drainage pipes run beneath the house before connecting with the main pipeline, meaning that if the sound of running water is present in your home when you feel it shouldn’t be, it could very well mean it’s time to investigate.

We recommend turning off your main water system, so that if the noise persists, you can tell that there’s a problem.

Unpleasant smells

Sticking with the senses, if you’ve ever had a drain blockage or malfunction before, then you are likely familiar with the unpleasant smell.

It can smell like the sewer or extreme mould, nasty to say the least – give Drain Defence a call and we can have this sorted for you in next to no time.

Wet Floors

When you can feel moisture, damp or water encroaching into your home, there’s a very strong likelihood that something is wrong with the drainage.

When it gets blocked or impeded, water can escape the piping and wreak havoc on internal infrastructure. If you feel this is what’s happening, be sure to nip it in the bud and have it relined.

Your water bills have gone up

Any and all inefficiencies with your piping will cause you to waste water – look for unexpected jumps in how much you’re paying on your water bills, as this would indicate something has gone wrong since your last check up.
