Before pipe relining technology, the only option to repair a damaged pipe was to excavate and replace the line. At best, excavation involved digging down through soft ground causing a little mess and a temporary disruption of your domestic harmony. At worst, you’re looking out the window, protecting your eyes and ears from the jackhammer that is demolishing your driveway, distraught at the thought of the bill you’re yet to receive and wondering when the nightmare might end.
Pipe Relining technology was developed to avoid excavation, providing a less disruptive and cheaper alternative, which is exactly what it does. And whilst there are varying degrees of excavation, rarely (if ever) is it a cheaper option than relining, not to mention relining is much more pleasant.
We have outlined three separate scenarios, taken from real-world projects, that compare an excavation and pipe relining solution side by side so that you can see that the numbers don’t lie when you’re deciding whether to dig and replace or simply, reline.
