Everyone experiences pipework problems at some point and chances are you’ll have a few questions when the problem arises. You might be faced with the choice, pipe replacement or pipe relining? The question is, which one is right for you? To help you decide,
we’ve answered some of our clients’ most common questions regarding the process.
1What’s Involved and How Long Will it Take?
Pipe replacement usually involves digging trenches in your garden or yard which can destroy your beautiful lawn or flower beds. Pipe relining, however, is much less invasive, minimal excavation is required and the work can usually be completed in just one day, even for larger projects. Compare that with a large retrenching project which can last for weeks.
2Is relining as durable as replacement pipes?
Yes, in fact, relined pipes are 4 times stronger and last longer than replacement pipes. Pipe relining is a permanent solution, designed to last for 50 years or more.
3How much will it cost?
Pipe relining can actually be a more cost effective solution in the long run, rather than digging up the yard. Pipe relining cost per metre can vary anywhere from $400 to $1100 or more.

4How Does Relining Work?
First of all, we will use a high pressure water jetter in the drain to remove any blockages and then insert the CCTV camera to locate any problems. We will then insert a polly woven resin soaked sock that is then inflated or inverted to replace the existing pipework. Once inflated or inverted the resin is cured by using hot water to create a strong seal. Once the resin is set the system is checked and the process is complete.
5My Pipes Have Tree Root Damage - Can Relining Help Me?
Yes, pipe relining can be used to fix almost any type of damaged pipework. In the case of tree root damage, we will remove the offending roots before pipelining. A thorough examination and quote will be required before we fix the damaged pipes due to tree root intrusion.
