DRAIN REPAIRS2019-01-29T12:28:52+00:00

We offer a full drain repair service.  Following a CCTV survey, we are able to determine the cause of your broken drain, whether it be wear and tear or a root ingress.

M R Drains Ltd use drain lining (no dig technology) , which  is an innovative method of repairing your broken drain without the need to dig up your driveway, patio or garden.  You can read more about this method on our Drain Lining page.

Drain lining after root ingress removal

Drainage underground clay pipe-work pipe work laid from 1900 to 1980s can move due to natural ground movement. All drainage pipe work are connected together by collars, no drainage were laid with just one single pipe, there were always collars which connected one pipe to another.

Collars are the weak point in the drain run, after years of natural ground movement, collars open and effluent flow seeps in to the surrounding sub soil, and eventually there is a void, no support beneath areas of pipe-work.

Mother nature then starts, tree root ingress grow to moisture, so with warm water from baths showers house hold waste, also there is no frost at the depths of running sewers. Drains are then blocked and damaged due to heavy tree root ingress.

All drains should be checked by CCTV Drain Surveys to ascertain the condition, with our drain lining method, to prevent further deterioration to existing pipe-work.


Drain lining is not possible if your drain has collapsed.  M R Drains engineers are prepared and trained to safely excavate, remove your broken pipework and replace with new pipework.

Where possible we will mix both methods together, for example we will just dig out and replace the part of the pipework that is beyond repair and then line the rest.  This saves our customers money on new pipework and the inconvenience of having more of their property excavated than necessary.

Like many others I just cannot recommend Matt and M.R.Drains more highly. Recently we had a very elusive problem with water ingress in the basement flat of our building on the New Kings Road, Fulham. Over a period of a month several so called drainage experts came to take a look. In short none of them had a clue despite charging vast amounts of money for camera surveys etc and giving eye watering estimates. It was our good fortune to stumble across Matt. First of all he arrived when he said he would and secondly had identified the problem in under half an hour. The cost of the video survey was peanuts in comparison to others and his equipment state of the art. By that evening he had emailed us the video, a report and a quote to send to our insurers. It was more than reasonable. Matt came several days later, again exactly when he said he would, and within a couple of days had repaired and lined the damaged pipes etc I felt completely comfortable leaving him with the keys of our property. We now have no water ingress and fully operational drains with a ten year warranty. Matt was very user friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I will definitely be recommending him to more

Unbeatable on price, speed and efficiency. A total breeze organising and completing the job with Matt. Very reasonably priced and we were even charged £5 less than quoted, which rarely happens. more

I cannot recommend this company highly enough. We contacted MR Drains Ltd and spoke with a their reception team who advised the person we needed to speak to was on the other line, but he'd call back within 5 minutes, which he did. We got a call back within minutes from Matt, who arranged to visit the property on the same day within 3 hours of receiving our call. He worked with our plumbers on site to investigate the drainage and track it with a camera. He went above and beyond in staying around to help the plumbers locate and lift other manholes. An absolutely lovely guy, who clearly knows his stuff. Fast, polite, super efficient. If only all companies were like this! Thanks again Matt. From a very happy customer!read more

Excellent service received from Matt and Harry. I had an urgent, serious drain and rodent issue at a residential property. I received an immediate response to my initial enquiry, and the work started within the week. They identified the issues, and were solution orientated, rectifying all of the problems. They were reliable, on time and tidy. They were not the cheapest quote, but the work and materials were of high quality, and you generally get what you pay for. A 10 year guarantee was also provided. I would definitely recommend more
