Do you have broken or cracked pipes, large open joints or displaced pipe sections?
If so you don’t necessarily need to dig your lawn or patio up to make the repairs .
Instead a fibreglass and silicate resin patch can be inserted into the pipe, pushed into position and then compressed to the pipe walls, the equipment for doing this is then pulled out two hours later and a repair has been completed.

It also removes the need for costly, disruptive time consuming excavation work, allowing for vehicles and pedestrians to move unhindered and without any knowledge of whats happening below ground.
Patch Repair Benefits
There are many benefits to this method some of which are outlined below;
- the repair system has been tested to WRc standards
- it reduces site wastage
- it offers a permanent watertight pipe repair
- its a quick No-dig application that reduces disruption significantly
- its environmentally and ecologically friendly
- can be used to repair pipes that have an internal diameter of between 70 and 560mm
- can be used to patch defects in straight sections
- can be used to patch defects in 90 degree bends
- its projected life span is 50 plus years
- we carry in stock patch repair materials and equipment to repair up to a 300mm straight section the same day should it be needed
- the resin bonds to most standard pipe materials including UPVC, clay, ductile iron, stainless steel
- the resin bonds to most old pipe materials including cast iron, asbestos cement and pitch fibre
- can be used to repair pipes that have been damaged as a result of tree root ingress or corrosion
- can be used to repair pipes that have holes, displaced or open joints and where there has been some ground movement.
These patch repairs can be installed in 90 bends, so if a hole has been roded into the rest bend at some point resulting in either a hole or some displacement of the pipework due to the ground erosion a patch repair can often be installed more easily and without the same level of disruption as having to excavate and replace the bend.
