Having trees and plants around is a perfect way to add beauty to a property but as they grow, they also pose a threat to sewage pipes underneath. Tree and plant roots can grow three times their height and in the search for a water source, they are likely to intrude the sewage pipes. If this happens, there will be cracks and some parts of the pipe will be completely damaged. Tell-tale signs of broken or damaged pipes are backflow, foul smell emissions and gurgling sounds when using the bathroom and toilet.

To resolve this problem, pipe replacement has been the choice for many. Pipe replacement is a traditional method that involves excavating the broken pipes to replace with new ones. The extensive process often causes disruptions to a property and is often very costly.

Thirty years ago, the non-traditional method called pipe relining was introduced.

How is pipe relining different from traditional methods?

Pipe relining is a method that entails inserting a liner of fibreglass or a cloth tube into the damaged pipe. This pipe liner binds with the old pipes making it function properly without the hassle of excavation. It can be used to repair pipes from 40mm to 600mm in diameter. These are the steps involved in the pipe relining process:

Partial pipe cleaning. The first step to the pipe relining process is partially cleaning the pipes using a high pressure water jetter.

CCTV pipe inspection. Sewer pipes will be inspected using a CCTV drain camera to determine if pipe relining is a suitable option. Video footage is also essential in identifying the cause of drainage issues.

Thorough pipe cleaning. The next step will involve thorough cleansing of the pipes, still using the high power water jetter. It will remove the tree roots and other obstructions in the pipes.

Pipe liner insertion. The pipe liner will be inserted and dragged into the pipe. It will be blown and encouraged to expand.

Curing. The resin will be left to cure. Steam is also used to aid the curing process.

CCTV inspection for quality control. When the resin has set, another video inspection is done for quality control.

What are the benefits of choosing the pipe relining process?

In the thirty years since it has been introduced, pipe relining has amazed many of our clients. Here are some of the benefits that our clients have enjoyed:

Efficiency. Pipe relining does not demand the excavation of pipes. The thing about traditional methods is that even pipes with minimal damage needed to be replaced. Pipe relining, on the other hand, leaves the broken pipes in place and simply fits them with a smaller one within.

Cost-effectiveness. Pipe relining is a quick process therefore saving on labour costs. There is also no need to buy new pipes or get another contractor to restore damaged landscaping.

Time-efficient. Time is not a problem with pipe relining because it can be done in just a matter of hours.

Durability. The resin is made to stand further root intrusion. It is even guaranteed to last for more than fifty years.
