What is pipe relining?

Pipe relining offers a drain repair option, without digging, for hard to access drains and pipes. It involves lining the inside of damaged pipes with industry leading resin options instead of removing the pipe altogether.

What is pipe replacement?

Pipe replacement is exactly as its name suggests - the replacement of a pipe in your home or office plumbing system. This generally involves digging up the broken or blocked section of drain and replacing it with a new drain.

What are the benefits of pipe relining?

Pipe relining has a range of benefits including:

  • Cost: Pipe relining does not require large scale excavations, which results in less costs when it comes to equipment and labour. There is also little replacement works needed, such as replacement of yards or roads following the completion of pipe relining.
  • Time: No large scale excavations usually means a quicker job. Pipe relining is also a great emergency option, as it is quicker than replacing and can help get repairs carried out before things get worse. For reference, most pipe relining jobs take hours (when replacement would take days) and days (when replacement takes weeks).
  • Protection: Pipe relining offers corrosion resistant pipe protection, with the lining providing a strong new pipe within the old broken one. The old pipe can actually collapse, and the new pipe created from the pipe relining will not be damaged.
  • Business Disruption Pipe relining offers only a minor disruption to your business as it can be completed around various opening times, for less downtime.
  • Destruction: Minimal destruction to buildings, pathways and landscaping.
  • Long-Term Solution: Pipe relining is a long-term solution for broken pipes and will stay in place for many years to come.

What are the benefits of pipe replacement?

Now that you've heard about the pipe relining benefits, what about pipe replacement?

  • Sagging: Pipe replacement is best when the pipe in question has a significant sag problem.
  • Shallow Location: If the broken pipe is located in an easy-to-reach place, or somewhere very shallow in the ground, traditional pipe replacement processes may be a more cost effective option.
  • Alignment: If the issue with the pipe is one of alignment, it is best to dig it up and realign it.
