When we think about anything to do with the underground piping, we immediately conjure up images of large holes and piles of dirt to enable access to the affected area.
But that is not necessary anymore due to and innovative and proven solution.
It’s called pipe relining and it’s a long lasting and durable fix when you need a permanent resolution to the problem.
Aside from the mess that the old way causes, it totally eliminates any need to hire digging equipment, which can be a problem in itself if access is tight and garden beds, driveways or pools are on top of the problem.
As implied, this technique basically involves the creation of a pipe inside the existing pipe. Specialised machinery feeds the resin liner down the tube and moulds it to the required diameter and shape.
It is then pressurised to the existing wall and hardens up to create the new pipe that is similar, but tougher, than the old one.
All the work is done above ground in much the same way as keyhole surgery.
It is an efficient and solution because as soon as a diagnosis of the problem is made, the machine can be brought in to get stuck into the job. No time is wasting hiring diggers and the like. It also helps keep the costs down.
