As time passes, faults begin appear to in drainage systems underground. These faults must be repaired to avoid further, more significant, more disastrous faults. For many years now there has only been one way to repair these faults; to dig up and repair or replace the faulty section. This was a messy and often costly, time consuming process, with many property’s without essential drainage systems for a few days. The new method of repair is pipe relining. Pipe relining repairs can occur with very little, if any disruption to the property. No excavation is required with pipe relining and as a result the repair takes a lot less time to complete, saving you money. In the pipe relining process repairing a pipe is done without a need for excavation, or very minimal in comparison to the traditional methods…this means your garden, foot path, drive way, road and even the house are safe!
What are the benefits of relining broken pipes?
How does pipe relining work?
There are a couple of different methods, however the first step is to clear your pipes of any blockage. For the most effective results in pipe relining the fiberglass mat should bond with a smooth unblocked surface. The liquid-type substance is then injected down the drains, filling the cracks and holes in the existing pipework. This resin substance sticks to the walls of the drainage pipes. The fiberglass relining material is then inserted and given time to set. The repair is then complete, with very little disruption to the occupants of the property.
How do you know if pipe relining is a suitable resolution to your drainage issue?
The best way to determine if pipe relining is suitable for your drainage issue is for one of our pipe relining specialists to come and assess your drainage situation with the CCTV camera. The CCTV camera will go down the drains (provided they are clear) to give our pipe relining specialist a clear indication of the best method of repair.
Can the materials used in pipe relining stand up to the pressures drains undergo?
The materials used in pipe relining are fiberglass and resin. Once set the fiberglass and resin are a very hard & durable combination that can last for many, many years.
How much disruption and disorder will happen to your property?
There is very little disruption and disorder to your property when pipe relining is underway…in fact by looking at the property, you would not think that there is major drainage work going on underneath the ground. This is one of the major benefits of pipe relining…unlike the traditional repair of digging up the property to replace the existing pipework, most relining can be achieved with very little excavation to no excavation at all!
Can the tree roots get back into the pipes after pipe relining?
Pipe relining is a joint-free product…this means that there is nowhere for the tree roots to get in (within the area that is relined). This means that pipe relining is 100% effective against tree roots!
