The old adage of failing to prepare is preparing to fail was pretty much written for reliners. In fact, the majority of the work that we do is in scoping and preparing the job, before we start relining pipes. When we are scoping out a pipe relining project, we like to consider not only the technical, but human factors to ensure we deploy a solution that is effective in solving the problem, whilst minimising disruption.
Technically, the most important and determining factor with the pipe relining process is the access to the damaged section of the pipe. How and where we can access the plumbing system, along with the length of the damaged pipe along with the number of junctions, influences the method of pipe relining we can use, as well as the time it will take to complete the project – as well as the cost. By fully surveying the project from top to bottom, we are able to devise effective technical solutions.
The human element is equally if not more important and infinitely more complicated to judge – after all, pipes don’t have ears, thoughts, or feelings. When visiting a property, we’re always keen to get to know the residents of the building as depending on their habits, we can adjust our hours, water downtime, and work areas to minimise disruption.
