Drain lining

Drain lining is a repair option that’s cost-effective, causes minimal disruption, and offers many additional benefits – like an increased water-flow rate and the prevention of tree-root infestation.

It’s a great way of getting your drain fixed if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Leaks, wet patches or dampness
  • Bad odours
  • Noticeable blockages
  • Cracks in your property’s brickwork, or on the ground
  • Subsidence

Our expert team can line or reline your drain with ease. That’s because we use only the best and most advanced technologies to identify your problem and remedy it as quickly, affordably and reliably as possible.

Despite its low price, our drain lining service is thorough and comprehensive. Firstly, we clear debris or blockages in your drains, and conduct thorough CCTV surveys to diagnose any further issues.

Then, we formulate a treatment plan, which may involve an entire line or reline, or a small patch if cracks are small or joints are simply misplaced. Finally, we carry out any required work swiftly and professionally.

While lining or relining may not be suitable in all situations, for example where drains have collapsed, we can provide other services – like traditional excavation and repair – to keep your house safe, dry and running smoothly.

Many thanks to Drain Surgeons for promptly clearing my sewer drain which was rising into my back garden. And many thanks to Jodi for going the extra mile and coming out so late at 7:30pm. It was a tough job but Jodi kept at it and eventually it cleared. I'm so grateful for the service provided.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Called the office to explain the issue, they were super friendly and helpful and advised someone would be out in a few hours. Victor arrived within 2 hours and quickly identified the issue. He was very professional and extremely respectful of our property. He kept me informed and talked me through the issue, including showing me everything on the cameras. He was vey clean and tidy and made sure I was completely happy before he left. Excellent service from everyone I dealt with at Drain Surgeons but particularly Victor. Great company, great service, highly recommend!.

Great company from start to finish. From the first phone call, to the job on site they were so professional.Had a small cesspit that needed to be cleared and I was really worried as we live on a farm. There was no need too, super professional and manoeuvred themselves round the farm like a pro.Even the farmer was impressed he didn't have to tow him out and it takes a lot to impress him.

Very much recommend this company (Ryan & Victor). Firstly in July 2023 Ryan came out as an emergency as our drains were blocked and toilet filling up. We had a young baby and didn’t want to be ripped off but their pricing seemed very reasonable. The company were prompt and helpful and Ryan worked fast to unblock our outside drains and clearly identified the problem. Then in February 2024 my mother had a blocked outside drainage identified on a survey and we suggested she used Drain Surgeons - Victor worked quickly to unblock and fix it. We would use this company again if need be!

You think when you buy a new house that the drains should be clear? Well that's not the case in Dubai. I'm very happy that I took the advice of a friend of mine to call up Dean and book an appointment to come check our drains. Extremely educational by sharing knowledge about the system we have and impartial in advising of the correct course of action to be taken regardless of money. Really friendly and professional and I would recommend to anyone who has any issues with their drains to spend their money here! An absolute must!!!

Highly recommend Drain Surgeons, they did a fantastic job re-lining our cracked clay pipe using blue light technology. They were polite, efficient, cleaned up after themselves and the staff in the office always helpful and quick to get back to you. We had 3 or 4 quotes to do this job and Drain Surgeons were the best for price and skill and offered blue light technology which no other company quoted us for.They saved us having to dig down and replace a pipe. Thank you, could'nt recommend enough!

Victor did a terrific job with our blocked downpipe which was a lot less straight-forward than it appeared. He identified the problem immediately, explained how he would resolve it & did so with great professionalism. Cleaned everything up afterwards. Would recommend Drain Surgeons. Very impressed.

After locating a blocked drainage system at the retirement development I manage, Drain Surgeons where contacted, attended within an hour, and within 2 hours, job done. Ryan was fantastic, talking me through every step. He took every care not to leave uncovered drains unattended, was polite and courteous with my residents, even offering to carry one residents bags for her. Top job! Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

We had a issue with an old drainage system from the moment we moved in and Oliver has been extremely helpful in resolving the problem for us. Drain Surgeons have put in a new treatment plant and soak away. Justin, who lead the team onsite, was very helpful and ensured the work ran smoothly. I would highly recommend this business to anyone and we will only be using Drain Surgeons for all future work.

Had a major issue with our cesspit, Dean was extremely helpful. He and the boys were knowledgeable and offered differing solutions to obtaining parts to help keep cost down. They were quick to attend and responded quickly to any queries. The whole group are top lads and will get your issue resolved. Really pleased we used them. Thanks again 👍👍👍👍Edit: 2023 - Once again Dean and the boys came up trumps. Top lads and always willing to go the extra mile.

Installing a new sewage treatment tank to replace existing non-compliant septic tank -Justin and Aaron, have done a fantastic job. I cannot praise them enough, and your backup team as well, the electricians and the tanker driver etc.Professional: Everything done correctly, documented daily, made safe continuously.Careful: This was tricky access, but the guys were so careful to avoid damage and keep things clean.Personable: Such nice guys, a pleasure to chat with them and understand what they were doing.Job well done: It works fine, and by the time they have finished they will have repaired the lawn, brought in new topsoil and grass seed, all of which are beyond my expectations.Value for money: I got 5 quotations and you were the lowest by far. But the standard of work is impeccable.

I called Drain Surgeons Ltd at 9.30am Monday because my loos weren’t flushing and sinks not draining. I thought my sewage tank needed emptying. Seb turned up in his tanker before 11.30, saw the tank was far from full, and the treatment system and pump were working well. So he set about looking for a blockage, which he found and then dealt with very quickly.He was brilliant - really helpful, explained everything well and was clearly determined to sort out any problems before he left.The office staff were all very good too. Whole service quite exceptional.

Excellent and professional service, from the lovely lady I spoke to on the phone, and from the engineer who attended.I was searching for quotes and availability online and there was absolutely no sales pressure. The receptionist was really helpful and organised for me to pay the invoice within 15 minutes... I was updated by email and the engineer arrived and was courteous, professional and tidied away everything well. Then left once the job was done..before I could give them a tip.I will definitely use this service again..!Friendly, Professional and fab knowledge about what a septic tank and housekeeping of that entails... Very impressed!Thank you 😊

Brilliant job! My drain had blocked (of course) at a weekend. Exceptionally friendly service from the person who answered the phone. The lovely man who did the drain was quick, helpful and equally friendly. I will definitely have Drain Surgeons as my 'go to' for any future drain work. Expensive but if this is the quality of service Drain Surgeons usually give then they are well worth the money.
