Sometimes plumbing pipes have a mind of their own. No matter how vigilant you are in ensuring strange items don’t get flushed or tipped down the drain, some pipes are simply too aged and worn to function properly. Broken and leaking pipes can cause a lot of damage and cost you a lot of money to repair and digging up your garden or pulling pipes out of the walls is not only hugely inconvenient. It will set you back a small fortune.
The latest technology in pipe preventative care assists to rehabilitate damaged drain and sewer lines underground without the need for excavation. It’s called Pipe Relining and works by placing a lining solution inside the existing pipe, along it’s sides, to form the shape of the pipe. Benefits of Pipe Relining include:
- Prolong the Life Of Your Pipes
- Cost Effective and Saves Money
- Minimise Landscape Disruption
Prolong the Life Of Your Pipes
The use of the epoxy materials in the relining process reinforces the old pipe throughout the entire system. Much like a sealant, this resin lines and supports the old pipe and eliminates weak points and joints, giving your pipes higher efficiency and resilience to damage.
Cost Effective and Saves Money
At the first sign of damage or leaking, preventative measures will usually ensure that further damage, and cost, can be avoided. Much like sealing a roof at the first sign of a leak inside, relining your pipes is a cost effective preventative measure to deter further damage and the need for complete replacement. Pipe relining is far less labour-intensive as the pipes do not have to be extracted from the ground and you do not have the added cost of materials and surroundings damaged during excavation.
Minimise Landscape Disruption
Plants and tress that have taken years to grow and establish can be gone in a second when you need to dig up your yard to replace and repair broken or damaged plumbing. Pavers and concrete for patio flooring as well as paths, garden beds, retaining walls and outdoor structures can also be compromised when large scale excavation has to be performed to locate damage or replace pipes. All this is not only inconvenient and upsetting, but costly as well. Pipe relining significantly reduces the down time of your backyard and the disruption to your landscape by having very little impact on your garden surface.
