Candidates undertake a knowledge test at the end of the course, along with a practical assessment. After completing the training the candidates will have acquired and be able to demonstrate the health and safety risks of using drain lining equipment and the precautions that need to be taken.

They will also be required to demonstrate that they can use the equipment and set it up correctly according to the Installation instructions held within the Training Manual and Course Hand-out pack.

The  CIPP Foundation Course includes exercises giving the candidates the chance to use the equipment

Inversion Drain Lining Using No Dig Technology

Posted on: December 30th, 2013

Repairing drain lining using No Dig Technology is a proven and established method of inserting a new replacement pipe within an existing damaged pipe without needing to excavate.

The new drain lining is inserted into the damaged pipe by a method called inversion which uses either water or air pressure to fit it tightly within the wall of the existing damaged pipe. When the inversion process is complete the new pipe structure is completely rigid, producing a stronger, reinforced pipe fitted within the existing pipe resulting in a minimal loss of diameter of approximately 6%.

The drain liner is manufactured from a special dense impermeable felt and is designed and tailored to fit exactly the internal dimension of the pipe to be refubished. The thickness of the lining material can be varied according to design specifications required. We recommend the following products:


Drain Lining - Renoline Flexiliner

Renoline Flexiliner

FLEXILINER (For inversion and Drag-in drain lining)

New Flexi-Cutter – Lateral Cutter For Pipes And Drains

Posted on: December 13th, 2013

The new Flexi-Cutter from Renoline is a Lateral Cutter that is ideal for cutting out lateral connections after a new drain lining has been installed. Being flexible it can negotiate bends of up to 90 degrees and is designed for pipes between 80mm and 150mm in diameter. This flexible lateral cutter includes an expanding pneumatic ram to hold the unit in place inside the pipe or drain for precision cutting, changeable rails for different pipe diameters and the 90 degree variable angle cutting head is ideal for awkward cuts.

What To Look For In A Quality Drain Lining Resin

Posted on: December 10th, 2013

When looking for a quality drain lining resin it is important to look for a resin that is 100% pure polyester. Pure polyester resin is formulated for maximum ease of use and performance, rather than for low cost. In the case of Renoline drain lining resin Norsodyne E8786, the formula also contains a number of additives including a yellow dye which makes it easier for the user to see and eliminates any air bubbles which may become trapped in the fleece during the wet out phase. Other additives help prevent slumping in the pipe and stabilise the cure during long periods of storage.


Lower quality filled drain lining resins have totally different characteristics to 100% pure polyester resin and they are cheaper to produce as part of the resin has been replaced with chalk filler giving it a distinctive chalky colour. These lower grade drain lining resins are heavier meaning less resin in every can and they can be stiffer and more brittle meaning that the resin has a tendency to slump down to the bottom of the pipe leaving a thin crown and thicker bottom to the liner which make them unsuitable for the lining of drains. The filler also has a tendency to leave millions of minute air bubbles in the resin possibly creating a porous liner once cured – the filler also makes for a harder impregnation when wetting out into felt drain liner. (If you weigh a litre of pure resin against a litre of filled resin the filled resin would be approximately 30% heavier)


Renoline in partnership with Cray Valley provides 100% pure polyester drain lining resins based on tried and tested technologies where maximum performance in the field has always been the overriding priority rather than opt for lower cost, inferior quality products.
