Drain renovation and pipe repair
For partially collapsed, worn out or damaged drains and sewer pipes, UKDN Waterflow’s no-dig or trenchless technology is the most efficient and least intrusive solution.
It requires little or no excavation and works equally well for drainage under roads, railways, canals and rivers; residential, commercial or industrial buildings and open spaces.
What does that mean for you?
It is like replacing the pipe, but without all the fuss of excavation. Pipes are repaired by putting a new lining into the existing pipe. Without excavation or fuel-heavy apparatus, this no-dig technology method is a quicker, greener and cleaner solution than traditional dig and replace methods. It is cost-effective too.
Why choose UKDN?
Whatever shape and size the pipe repair project, you can rely on UKDN Waterflow for the best renovation solution. We do full length linings and patch repairs, and we repair sewers and drains from 100mm-diameter up to 4000mm diameter.

What is no-dig technology?
No-dig or trenchless technology is a way of repairing a pipe by installing a liner inside the damaged structure. The liner is then cured in place so that it creates a new pipe inside the old one. There are three main methods — UV cured GRP relining, ambient cure polyester resin and heat cured thermosetting resin — so we select the most appropriate one for your sewer fix. For very large diameter pipes we may also use other techniques including panel systems, segment panel systems and joint repairs.
How do we do it?
- We use pan and tilt cameras and sonde tracing to establish the structural condition of the pipes and locate any damage
- We clean the drains and sewers by high pressure jetting to avoid damaged areas being hidden by scale, debris or sludge
- Finally, we repair and restore the defective drains or sections of the pipe using our advanced no-dig methods.
In addition to our sewer and drain repair service, we also upsize and install new pipelines using a range of specialist techniques such as auger boring, pipe jacking, pipe bursting, timber headings, microtunnelling, impact moling, shaft sinking and GRP segmental lining.
UKDN Waterflow is one of the UK’s leading contractors for the trenchless repair of drains and sewers. We have pioneered new, innovative techniques when others have failed to deliver. That is why so many organisations rely on us for their water and wastewater infrastructure solutions.
