Pipe lining – the benefits of relining as a blocked drain solution
Think of your drains and pipe around your house, like your heart and its arteries. If you have arteries that are clogged with fats, medication and a healthy diet may clear them temporarily. But the problem of heart failure is still ever present. When a stent is inserted surgically, the arteries are held open preventing the further build-up of fats and that cause them to clog.
In most cases, clearing blocked drains on a regular basis costs a lot of money and time, not to mention the stress knowing that your pipes may block again at any time. Once tree roots and cracks appear in a pipe, they will only worsen over time, as the roots grow exponentially and ground movement widen the cracks.
Each time your plumber clears your drains, your drains will remain root free and unblocked for just so long - until the roots grow back through the cracks and joins to become blocked again.
Trenchless or no dig pipe liner repair is the permanent, innovative, and affordable blocked drain solution. Basically, you are rehabilitating the drain pipe to like-new condition using a continuous epoxy resin and fabric liner that hardens inside the pipes. Cracks are closed and joins sealed so that roots cannot penetrate the pipe.
Have a look at this page, it shows exactly how relining works and seals cracks, and damaged pipes permanently.
In the past, the only permanent solution to blocked drains was full excavation of the entire sewer line. This is a daunting prospect, especially when permanent structures such as driveways and paving and expensive and established landscaping may have to be demolished in the process.
The most significant benefit of relining is the ability to repair underground piping systems with minimal to no excavation required. The only digging required is a pit to access the pipes, so that the new reliner can be fed through it.
- Established gardens and landscaping will be retained.
- Avoids the costly expense of removing and reinstating hard surfaces such as driveways, tennis courts, paving areas, or when pipes are located under the house.
- Allows for water pipes to be renewed in busy areas, areas of historical, cultural and environmental significance.
- Stronger than PVC
Relining creates a new continuous liner inside the host pipe, no joins are created. This removes the existing joints that are prone to root ingress even in PVC piping. Setting of the reliner takes a couple of hours and once set the pipe becomes stronger and more durable than PVC. Have a look at this video that demonstrates the pipe liners strength and durability.
