Pipe Relining

At Water Tight we have highly trained and licenced technicians, our team are constantly keeping up to date with the latest in pipe relining technology. We can not only locate and identify any issues in your sewer or drain without digging, we can then rectify the problem through water jetting or robotic cutting, and then prevent future problems by inserting a strong, long lasting pipe lining.

What is pipe relining?

Pipe relining is a process where a pipe lining is placed on the inside of an existing pipe to fix any leaks or cracks, and smooth uneven surfaces. It means that we can fix broken pipes without the need to dig up and replace the pipe. This can not only save you time and money usually needed to dig up pipes under various structures etc., but also the hassle of having your home or business disrupted for extensive work.
In many cases, blocked drains are caused by root intrusion, whereby tree roots grow into small cracks in pipes to access the moisture. In many cases, a plumber will remove these roots using an eel or water jet. However, as long as the crack remains the roots will continue to grow back. With pipe relining services, we can repair the cracks with the minimum impact to your property and therefore reduce the chance of future blocked drains.

The pipe relining solutions that we use all come with an independently tested 50-year design life. The actual pipe lining in many cases will be structurally stronger than the original pipe it is reinforcing.

When should you consider using it?

Traditionally if you had an issue with a sewer or storm water drain pipe, you asked a plumber dig it up and either repair or replace it. This, however, can create all sorts of headaches when the sewer or drain travels under permanent or semi-permanent structures such as driveways, pathways, tennis courts, and even buildings. In these cases, you would need to jackhammer through the structure to get to the pipe and then rebuild the structure when you are finished. As you can imagine, this can be very disruptive and take a lot of time and money.

Pipe relining allows us to repair the drain or sewer where they are, without the need to dig up the pipe. So as long as the pipe is still essentially structurally sound, we can fix it with pipe relining.

The liner, once cured is a structural liner which will completely adhere to the host pipe and will ensure if you have had an issue with tree roots penetrating your pipes the tree root will not go through the host pipe and the newly relined pipe. If there are any spans or voids within the old pipe, the relined pipe as it is a structural liner and will therefore fill these voids and spans and you will be left with a brand new pipe within the old pipe.
