What Are Drain Linings and Why Are They Important?
When most people hear the words drain lining, they often have images of bulky, expensive drainage solutions with the kind of problems they cause. While it’s true that many commercial and industrial drains need expensive materials to install, lining the inside of your drains with a flexible plastic liner is actually a very affordable alternative to fixing the problem yourself. In fact, it’s much less expensive than some of the alternatives. Even so, if you have a large drain opening, you’re probably going to want to invest in a professional line installation from a company like Wilkinson Environmental rather than trying to DIY your drainage problems. If only there was another solution which iced over drain problems without requiring major earthworks.
Fortunately, in the case of drain lining, there exists in the shape of prefabricated, low-cost drain lining just like the kind you see on many swimming pool pipes. In essence, drain lining is an easy way to quickly repair blocked drains without having to dig around inside the pipes. If the drain opening has been obstructed by rust, age, or even vegetation, the new seamless liner will cut down on the time it takes to excavate around the pipe, allowing repair crews to get to work before the water in the drains gets any colder.
By installing a premade liner for all of your drains, you’ll avoid the frustrations and headaches of trying to install the right material, and you’ll save yourself the money it costs to buy a pipe and accessories for your drains.
