Vertical and horizontal house pipe repairs without breaking walls
Leaking downpipes and sewers in buildings still typically mean bad smells for the residents and can,in the worst case, result in structural damage and moist walls or even mouldiness.
Conventional repair methods – breaking up of walls and/or grounds – then make people suffer noise, dirt and service disruption. Trelleborg Pipe Seals have a remedy for this problem: The new epros®DrainLCR-B repair method repairs laterals without breaking out walls or excavations, and thus means much less annoyance of residents.
The epros®DrainLCR-B is a pipe repair device or method for the rehabilitation of in-house downpipes and underground sewers.
In this innovative method, the repair unit - the so called packer - is inserted in the existing access holes, chambers or eyes of the rainwater or wastewater downpipe and sewer and pushed to the point of repair by means of compressed-air push rods.
As the LCR-B packer is highly flexible, it will smoothly negotiate 45° elbows in a DN 100 main pipe and even 90° elbows in lines of DN 125 or more.
An inspection camera is placed into the branch line and pushed up to the main/branch interface.
Once the LCR-B packer has reached the junction, the mouth piece of the LCR-B hat profile or LCR-B liner can be turned by means of the locked air push rods for proper alignment with the branch.
The LCR-B hat profile in the main pipe seals the interface between the two pipe systems with its rim only, whereas the LCR-B liner is designed as a short liner in the down pipe or house sewer.
Low cost: Just buy the packers actually required - investment is small
Time saving: 50% less operating time due to steam curing

Before and after curing
About a third of the most sewer systems is older than 75 years.
The average life span of pipes and sewers counts 80 years.
More then 40% of private property drainage pipes are estimated to be defect.
Drugs, sweeteners and hormones can only be partially biodegraded.
