Pipe Relining FAQs
I’ve got blocked, broken or damaged pipes, what can I do?
There are 2 main solutions available to you:
With both options, the quality of the installation is critical. If dig and replace is executed poorly, you will have weak areas in your pipework where tree roots can enter. Similarly with pipe relining: if the installation is badly executed or the product is inferior, you may have further problems down the track.
What is Pipe Relining?
Pipe relining is a method of rehabilitating or repairing sewer and stormwater pipes with little to no digging. A seamless liner is cut to length, soaked in environmentally safe resin and applied to the pipe work via an access point. The result is a completely new pipe within the structures of the old pipe. The relined pipe is 100% watertight, stronger than PVC to protect against things like tree root penetration and has an optimal flow rate compared to standard pipes.
Does pipe relining work?
Absolutely. We have been delivering high-quality relining solutions for over a decade. We’re so confident in our team, technology and tools that we guarantee our relining installation for 35 years. For your peace of mind, we also offer a free annual inspection for the life of the pipe reline.
How does the 35 year guarantee work?
If you experience drainage issues within 35 years of your relining work being installed, we will assess the problem and if we find it is caused by defective pipe relining installation we will coordinate the repair free of charge. Our relined pipes have a life expectancy of 50 years.
Why is pipe relining expensive?
Unlike temporary solutions such as cleaning drains using a high pressured water jet, pipe relining provides a permanent solution. When you consider that once relined, you won’t have to worry about your pipes or drains for at least 35 years, it is relatively affordable.
Additionally, pipe relining can be completed with little to no excavation. Beyond being a convenient solution to drain repair, the pipe relining process is extremely fast and reasonably priced when you take into account the cost savings associated with not needing to reinstate paving, retaining walls and so on. It generally takes no more than a day to reline broken, blocked or clogged drains.
Can you reline specific sections of pipe?
For smaller leaks or cracks in pipes that don’t need complete relining, we offer pipe patching solutions. We reline sections of pipe and stop and start at a fixed point.
How long does the pipe relining process take?
Most jobs can be completed in just one day. The relining itself takes on average 8 hours and the resin itself cures in 2. After this, the pipe is ready to use.
Can I use my toilet during the relining process?
To ensure we do not compromise the integrity of the reline we ask that you don’t run any water – including toilets – whilst we complete the process. It’s important that no water enters the sewer or stormwater whilst relining as this may result in the reline failing.
What’s the best solution for tree roots in my pipes?
Invasive tree roots are the main cause of blocked or damaged drains in Sydney. If you’re experiencing blocked drains due to tree roots, your local plumber can use a high pressure water jet to rectify the problem. Once they’ve cleaned them, it’s a good idea to request a camera inspection so you can understand where the roots are entering the pipe work.
Once cleaned, your plumber may recommend pipe relining to avoid recurrence in the future. Tree roots will always search for water – if you fix your pipe work in one place, they will try to enter the pipe work at the next weakest point. That’s where we come in. Our relining solution is so robust that it protects your pipes against tree-root penetration for at least 35 years.
Why would I pay for pipe relining when I can clean them each year?
Sure, it might be cheaper in the short term to clean your pipes annually. However – over time it’s sure to become a hassle dealing with the same problem over and over again. Plus, frequently cleaning pipes or drains will, over time compromise the integrity of the pipe work- this could lead to bigger problems down the track.
Can you reline a collapsed pipe?
Unfortunately it is not possible to reline a collapsed pipe. That’s why it’s important to address the problem before the pipes are damaged beyond repair. Once pipes collapse you are left with only one disruptive, inconvenient and often expensive option – digging.
What’s better relined pipe work or PVC?
Relined pipes are watertight, have an optimal flow rate and are structurally tougher than PVC to protect against things like tree root penetration. For this reason, we only provide a 1 year guarantee on newly installed PVC versus our 35 year guarantee on our relining work.
