Fix the Problem, Not just the Symptom
What is pipe relining?
Pipe relining is a process where a pipe lining is placed on the inside of an existing pipe to fix any leaks or cracks, and smooth uneven surfaces. It means that we can fix broken pipes without the need to dig up and replace the pipe. This can not only save you time and money usually needed to dig up pipes under various structures etc, but also the hassle of having your home or business disrupted for extensive work.
In many cases, blocked drains are caused by root intrusion, whereby tree roots etc grow into small cracks in pipes to access the moisture. In many cases, a plumber will remove these roots using an eel or water jet . However, as long as the crack remains the roots will continue to grow back. With pipe relining services, we can repair the cracks with the minimum impact to your property and therefore reduce the chance of future blocked drains.
The pipe relining solutions that we use all come with an independently tested 50-year design life. The actual pipe lining in many cases will be structurally stronger than the original pipe it is reinforcing.
When should you consider using it?
Traditionally if you had an issue with a sewer or stormwater drain pipe, you asked a plumber dig it up and either repair or replace it. This, however, can create all sorts of headaches when the sewer or drain travels under permanent or semi-permanent structures such as driveways, pathways, tennis courts, and even buildings. In these cases, you would need to jackhammer through the structure to get to the pipe and then rebuild the structure when you are finished. As you can imagine, this can be very disruptive and take a lot of time and money.
Trenchless pipe lining allows us to repair the drain or sewer where they are, without the need to dig up the pipe. So as long as the pipe is still essentially structurally sound, we can fix it with pipe relining.
Are all solutions the same?
In a word NO. There are many pipe relining products that have no design life engineered into them (this is essentially how long they are designed and engineered to last). The pipe relining products we use have at least a 50-year useful life.
