Success for A Hand Services with new S1E Lining Service

Posted: Wednesday 28th March 2018

Contractor A Hand Services became the first customer to use Source One Environmental (S1E)'s new pre-wet lining service at the end of February - with great success.

"We've been involved in all aspects of drain repair for years, including relining work, so we knew exactly what we needed for a professional repair on this job," explained Stuart Ball, Contract Manager for A Hand. "We've also known the guys in S1E's Lining Team for some time and knew that, although they're new to S1E, they have real expertise in supplying professional lining products."

The job involved an 87m long reline of a failed 225mm main sewer line within a housing estate, on behalf of the local Water Authority. It took place in Telford, at the heart of the area A Hand cover, which extends across the Midlands, West of Birmingham, and includes all of North Wales.

The 225mm diameter liner was pre-impregnated with polyester resin, then delivered to site by an experienced member of the S1E Lining Team. A Hand's crew used a sluice machine to install the liner by inversion and a heat cure method.

"The service we received was exactly what we needed. The liner installation went totally smoothly and the result was excellent. We're really pleased," Stuart concluded.
