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.
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 and compressed air. The result is a completely new pipe within the structure 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.
Pipe relining does work. We have been delivering high-quality relining solutions for over a decade. We’re so confident in our team, technology and equipment 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.
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.
Pipe relining costs primarily get based on the length and diameter of pipes, the number of bends and junctions, and access to affected areas. Expect to pay between $500-$700 per linear metre for domestic sewer and drain repairs.

Pipe relining cost compares favourably to prices for traditional methods of pipe repair – which rely on excavation and reinstatement. Pipe reline materials are high-quality and durable, so pipe relining warranties exceed those of brand-new sewer and drain pipes by several decades.
Digging can be a good option if the damaged line is located in a shallow, grassed area. If the line is inaccessible, e.g. under a garden or bathroom that you don’t want to disturb then relining is the best option. It minimises the impact to surrounding areas resulting in less mess and disruption and provides more effective protection from root penetration than newly installed PVC or earthenware pipes.
Pipe relining reduces the cost, time and hassle required to restore your property and landscaping. It’s fast! Most jobs can be completed within a day. You will receive a 35-year guarantee. We can only provide you with a 1 year guarantee on newly installed pipes.
Pipe relining can repair broken or damaged earthenware sewer and storm water lines, junctions and boundary traps. Even pipes that are only partially intact can still be relined as long as there is a structure to contain the reline. Damage to horizontal, vertical and concealed pipes and cast iron stacks in apartment buildings can also be repaired.
Pipe relining is excellent value for money, removing most or all of the need for damage to property interiors, landscaping, and roads and footpaths. Pipe relining contractors should be highly trained, offering long warranties on installs carried out with sophisticated machinery and durable products.
Pipe Relining Solutions provides a 35 year guarantee on relined pipes. Therefore we expect the fix to last for at least 35 years. Pipes relined using the Brawoliner® inversion relining system also have a life expectancy of 50 years.
We don’t only reline sewer pipes, we also reline storm water, downpipes, electrical lines, culverts, trade waste and lines that carry chemicals.
We can also repair horizontal, vertical and concealed pipes and junctions. We can rehabilitate boundary traps and cast iron stacks in apartment buildings.
An access area of 500mm by 350mm is required to insert the drum for Brawoliner® inversion pipe relining. Only one access point is required as opposed to two access points for the drag-in method.
We get this question a lot. We would love to say yes! but unfortunately, due to the small diameter (usually 40mm) and number of bends, we cannot reline pool pipes.
Brawoliner® is the most flexible liner in the world and is therefore perfectly designed for Australian pipe work with its multiple bends.
Pipe relining does not reduce flow. In fact flow will actually increase because inversion pipe relining achieves a relatively equal wall thickness of the complete length and radius creating a smooth lining on the inside of the pipe in effect creating a ‘slippery dip’ for waste.
Brawoliner® has been the number one performer in strict quality control tests in Germany, Europe and the UK and is Watermark approved in Australia. Their patented liner is the most flexible in the world. This makes Brawoliner® the perfect product for Australia’s plumbing systems containing multiple bends and changes in diameter.
Pipe Relining Solutions is trained to install Brawoliner. We trained at the Brawoliner® factory in Germany in 2009 and 2012. Since then Pipe Relining Solutions has been installing Brawoliner® on a daily basis. Our understanding of this system enables us to complete the most challenging of jobs.
Pipe Relining Solutions is a Brawoliner certified installer. We were was certified by Brawoliner to install its product in 2009.
Inversion relining occurs when the liner is turned inside out as the liner is pushed through the host pipe with compressed air. This ensures that the epoxy soaked side of the liner makes contact with, and adheres to, the host pipe. Find out more about how pipe relining works.
The pipe relining inversion process ensures that any gaps or cracks in the host pipe are filled with resin thereby preventing the entry of roots and liner shrinkage. The inversion process produces an equal wall thickness of the complete length and radius to produce a high quality final product. The smooth inner surface of the reline facilitates the flow of effluent/sewerage virtually eliminating the likelihood of blockages.
The inversion method is versatile; it only requires one access point. The alternative method is ‘drag-in’ where the liner is pulled into place. The omission of compressed air used in this method cannot guarantee an end product of equal wall thickness throughout the length and radius of the relined pipe work. As the resin is applied on the inside of the liner it does not have contact with the host pipe. The lack of adherence to the host pipe can result in shrinkage. Drag-in methods also require 2 access points to position the liner into place.
Brawo® resin is epoxy resin that has been optimised for use with Brawoliner®. It has high abrasion and chemical resistance and is free of solvents. It has 50-year durability and is environmentally friendly when hardened. Its excellent mechanical properties ensure that it doesn’t shrink in the host pipe like some other resins such as polyester (shrinkage can allow roots to grow back between the liner and the host pipe).
The Brawoliner® relining system uses a combination of a strong, seamless liner woven with environmentally friendly fibres and epoxy resin which is non carcinogenic.
The way that the Brawoliner® system is applied to the pipe means that resin won’t leak into storm water systems to contaminate waterways whilst relining is in process.
As relining completely seals the pipe work, any waste that was leaching into the subsoil around the pipework is halted, reducing the impact on the environment significantly. Left alone this can become a major health hazard, not only for humans but any wildlife in the local vicinity.
Tree roots usually access pipe work through damaged or weak sections of PVC or earthenware pipe. The best method of protecting your sewer or stormwater pipes from frequent root damage is through pipe relining.
Pipe relining is installed in one seamless length of liner, combined with epoxy resin. The resin applied to the outside of the liner directly to the host pipe via inversion relining will seep into the weak cracks and joins to provide a barrier against further tree root intrusion.
For smaller leaks or cracks in pipes that don’t need complete restoration, we offer pipe patching solutions. We reline sections of pipe and stop and start at a fixed point.
Most sewer and stormwater repair jobs can be completed in just one day. The pipe lining process itself takes on average 8 hours and the resin itself cures in 2. After this, the pipe is ready to use.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
