What factors cause your pipes to break?
Old pipes break. They can are made from clay, terracotta or plastic. Time, tree roots and pressure break them, and no amount of electric-eeling or cleaning will unbreak them.
Common causes of pipe damage include:
- Tree roots
- Shifting soil
- Build-up of debris
- Poor installation
- Corrosion and pressure
Eventually, you’ll need to dig up your lawn, driveway or house to replace the damaged pipes – or reline.
Relining typically costs 50% less than a conventional dig and replace operation, takes less time and causes much, much less disruption.
How does it work?
Think of relining as feeding an inner-tube into the current pipe, then hardening and sealing that tube until it’s stronger than any clay, terracotta or plastic pipe.
Rather than excavating and replacing the damaged pipe, causing mess and disruption to your property (and your bank balance) – we reline from the surface.
Using the best available Watermark accredited tech and using ultra-strong, impenetrable EPOXY resin, we cause minimal fuss, often maintaining services and completing most projects within a single day.
- Investigate – Using CC.TV technology, we investigate the problems and provide you with an itemised quote for the work that needs to be done, taking the time to explain where the budget is being spent and why arming you with the information you need.
- Prepare – We take time to prepare above and below ground to ensure we cause minimal disturbance by establishing safe work zones and diverting any plumbing systems where possible, avoiding service disruptions.
- Reline – Only then do we cure and install our impenetrable EPOXY resin using state of the art relining techniques that allow us to accurately pinpoint the damaged section of the pipe, drain or sewer and navigate any bends or junctions.
We create and install a guaranteed 50-year solution with our superior relining products & materials coming with a life expectancy of 50 years and up.
Relining Cheat Sheet
How does Pipe Relining work?
Pipe relining has become a popular technique for repairing broken or clogged drains because it is more cost-effective and reliable than other conventional methods of pipe and drain repairs since it does not involve digging a trench to gain access to the pipes for replacement (this method is also known as trenchless pipe repair technology). Instead, the pipes are left just where they are, with little to no soil upturned.
How much does Pipe Relining cost?
When weighing your repair choices, there are multiple cost factors to consider including the hire of machinery and labour expenses for earthmoving, as well as repair and maintenance as a result of heavy groundwork.
Pipe relining is a long-lasting and reliable drain repair method that costs between $400 and $800 per metre. A standard residential pipe repair will cost anywhere from $2500 upwards. If you’re looking for a low-cost but reliable way to fix your damaged pipes, pipe relining is the best solution.
Not only is it less costly than to replace the whole pipe or sewage line, but a good pipe relining solution will last for decades, reducing the cost of potential repairs. Pipe relining jobs are usually quoted in terms of cost per metre.
Expect to pay $2500 for the first metre of 100mm dia pipe relining, with an additional $400 to $500 per metre after that.
Is Pipe Relining safe?
Pipe relining is a quick and simple repair solution, but it must be implemented correctly to be successful. As a result, it’s important to choose skilled and professional plumbers or recliners for your project. Only working with a company that can guarantee the quality and durability of their work.
Before repairing your old pipes, the pipe relining expert will thoroughly inspect and prepare them, as well as ensure that the relining is completed neatly. If done poorly, this may result in more harm to your plumbing system, resulting in extra costs and issues.
How long does Pipe Relining last?
Pipes that have been relined usually have a life expectancy of 50 years. It’s best to ask your pipe relining expert about the manufacturer’s warranty on their product.
Is pipe relining worth it?
Have you recently found a clogged or broken pipe in your home? Pipes are notoriously difficult to keep up with and fix. When an emergency like this occurs, you need to know exactly what your options are for repairing the damage as soon as possible before it worsens.
Pipe relining can repair a variety of problems caused by structural damage, including cracks, sag, and misaligned pipes, as well as damage caused by wayward tree roots. It not only fixes the majority of these problems, but it can also actively avoid them in the future.
Traditional pipe repair can be time-consuming and require the restoration of surface finishes. As a result, the financial burden increases. Since there is no need to dig up something, pipe relining is a far more cost-effective option, and the finished relined pipe produces the same result as a collection of brand new pipes. As opposed to a conventional pipe replacement from a non-specialist plumber, hiring a pipe relining specialist to analyse and repair your pipes could save you thousands of dollars.
Pipe relining is more efficient than pipe replacement in many respects when it comes to repairing broken and damaged pipes. Don’t pay for the plumber to dig trenches and dismantle walls, concrete slabs, and your yard in order to repair your broken or damaged pipes entirely. Pipe relining, requires the simple removal of a fixture, use of an inspection opening or at worst a single one-square-metre access hole. The tubing is much cheaper than buying new pipes, and it’s also a lot more convenient because you don’t have to dispose of your old pipes.
