Top Hat Sewer Lateral Repair

Always embracing and investing in new technologies the team here at Maintain Drains has recently undertaken what is known as a lateral or ‘top hat’ repair to a drainage run.

In order to have a complete no-dig solution for the repair of drains and sewers techniques have been developed for the relining of the junctions where two pipes meet underground.

‘Top hat’ or ‘Junction liners’ are used more commonly on larger sewer systems however these techniques can also be used on pipes sizes down to 100mm diameter and are therefore suitable for domestic pipe work.

For the most we would tend to excavate domestic junctions or reline up to them from three directions but if you have a scenario where you absolutely do not want an excavation and you need the junction relining due to fractures, ground water or tree root ingress there are a few companies out there with the equipment and know how to assist.

Please take a look at our Facebook page, Maintain Drains, to see a recent example of this type of installation.

We’ve received this lovely letter from Archie, aged 10, he had to write a letter to a key worker as part of his Lockyers Middle School homework. Thanks Archie, great work! ✅

‘Dear John

My name is Achie. I’m 10 years old and I’m in year 5 at Lockyers Middle School. I’ve chosen to write to you because I would like to thank you for all the work at this difficult time.

Your work is important because people still need their drains unblocking. The local community benefits because their house could flood. Your job is interesting because no day is the same. Your job must be fun because you get to mess around with poo!

I think you have a cool number plate because it is POOBOSS.

With best wishes. Archie Best’
