Pipe Relining Solutions was certified by Brawoliner to install its product in 2009.
Pipe Relining Solutions 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 product enables us to complete the most challenging of jobs.
Pipe relining cost per metre can be anywhere from $300 to $1000. The price of the job will depend on factors such as accessibility, risk, the size of the pipe work, the length of the problem area and number of junctions. To provide an accurate quote, a site inspection is required. Try out our calculator to estimate the cost of your job here.
Relining systems are not born equal. After a year of research we chose the Brawoliner® system from Germany because we wanted to offer our clients the best product that is designed to last: Brawoliner® has a life expectancy of 50 years. 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 it the perfect product for Australia’s plumbing systems containing multiple bends and changes in diameter.
Inversion occurs when the liner is turned inside out as the liner progresses through the host pipe due to the application of 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 inversion process ensures that any gaps or cracks in the host pipe are filled with resin. 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 optimized 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).
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.
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.
No, there no reduction in flow as a result of pipe relining. 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.
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.
No, we don’t only reline sewer lines, we also reline storm water, downpipes, electrical lines, culverts, trade waste and lines that carry chemicals.
Yes, Brawoliner® is the most flexible liner in the world and is therefore perfectly designed for Australian pipe work with its multiple bends.
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 as 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.
The common problems that we fix are 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 for the relining to adhere to. We can repair damage to horizontal, vertical and concealed pipes and cast iron stacks in apartment buildings.
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.
