7 Questions Commonly Asked About Pipe Reline

1. How Long Will The Repair Last?

The pipe relining method is a lifetime fix to your drainage issue. In comparison the water jetter used to maintain the pipes is only a fix on average for 6-12 months. The traditional excavation repair method is not as affective long term, as the PVC pipework that is installed has joints, allowing tree roots over time to re-enter the system.

2. Can The Tree Roots Re-enter 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!

3. How Much Disruption & Disorder Is There 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!

4. What Ongoing Costs Are Associated With Pipe Relining?

None! Once this drainage issue is repaired and the pipe is relined, there are no ongoing costs. In comparison,
regular clearing of the drains with the water jetter has costs every 6-12 months.

5. 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.

6. How Long With The Repair Take Compared To The Traditional Excavation Method?

The pipe relining process is much quicker than the traditional repair of excavating the old faulty pipes and replacing with new. Where a repair using the traditional method would take 5 days, a repair of the same magnitude would take around 2 days to complete…meaning you will be able to use your drainage system much faster!

7. Is Pipe Relining 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. If the pipe relining specialist has provided you with a quote for repair your drains using pipe relining, then this means that your issue can be resolved with pipe relining.
