WHY PIPE RELINING?

The most cost-effective and efficient of way repairing broken, collapsed and missing sections of drains, either above or below ground, without the need of costly excavation, repairs or replacement.

SAVES YOU MONEY

The pipe relining process eliminates the costly excavations and replacement of existing pipelines in conjunction with all the other associated costs involved.

STOPS LEAKS

Cured-in-place epoxy lining moulds to the internal diameter of the host pipe creating a structural seamless ‘pipe within a pipe’.

Increases Flow Capacity

Newly relined pipelines increase flow capacity due to the new smooth inner lining of the pipelines.

No destruction

Using systemised methods SA Pipe Relining is capable of relining pipelines through inspection openings or any from of access to the pipeline.

No disruption to your routine

The lining process is non intrusive and clean allowing your routine to be maintained with minimal disruption and maximum cleanliness.

No damage to ROADS, paths or landscaping

SA Pipe Relining has the ability to create a ‘pipe within a pipe’

Utilising technology, commonly referred to as Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) and Pull-In-Place (PIP), SA Pipe Relining has the ability to create a ‘pipe within a pipe’. This is achieved using specific environmentally friendly, scientifically tested epoxy resins, creating a new seamless structural strength pipe, junction or sectional repair – within the host pipe without damage to structures, floors, landscapes or causing nuisance and inconvenience.

The seamless liner is custom made from fabric that is impregnated with specific environmentally friendly two part epoxy resins and a pre inserted bladder spanning the length of the liner. The liner is inserted into the pipeline through an inspection opening or access point and is positioned in the desired location. The bladder is then inflated using compressed air, causing the liner to mould to the host pipe, filling cracks, holes and spanning over any voids in the pipeline. The liner can be custom made to length, from 1m upwards allowing small sectional repairs to be carried out or complete mains relined.

The liner will adhere to PVC, Cast Iron, Concrete Pipe, Roll Groove, Galvanised Pipe, Copper, HDPE, Poly Pipe, Zincalume, Cardboard – absolutely anything.

This particular technology’s greatest advantage is the ability to structurally epoxy reline multiple angle bends, junctions and changes in pipe size with the option of only lining the area in need of repair. This provides significant cost savings and flexibility as the need to reline entire lengths of pipe from point of entry to point of repair is not necessarily required.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long will the job take?

Each job is unique and may require completion in stages which will vary from job to job however consider the following as a guide;

    1. Our resins come in various curing times; Slow, Medium and Fast and can also be hot cured for faster setting.
      • Slow – approximately 8-10 hours to cure
      • Medium – approximately 6-8 hours to cure
      • Fast – approximately 3-5 hours to cure
      • Hot cure – approximately 45mins-2 hours to cure
      • All curing times are dependent on the ambient temperature.
    2. Each liner is custom manufactured (generally off site).
    3. Every drain (or host pipe) requires preparation to ensure the internal bore of the drain is descaled, all obstructions and tree roots removed and properly prepared to accept the liner.
    4. Some jobs have very limited drain access therefore inspection openings may need to be inserted or raised to provide sufficient access.

 

All of the above contribute to time required on site to effectively complete the job however in most applications typical downtime of any single sectional lining of pipe would be no greater than 10 hours.

How strong is the liner?

The liner is extremely strong, almost 4 times stronger than PVC!

It’s so strong that it can act as its own pipe (not just inside another). For example if your drain actually had a missing section, on the proviso that we can pull the liner through the missing section of drain, we’d be able to reline it, creating a structural pipe that is strong enough to take the weight of the ground above it and act as its own pipe.

Can you reline around bends and junctions?

Absolutely! The advantage that our liners have over others on the market is that we can custom manufacture our liners to any length and have the ability to reline around multiple bends, changes in direction and junction lining.

What sizes can you reline to and what are the typical applications?

Our liners will adhere to any type of material.

The most common applications are in: PVC, copper, earthenware, HDPE, cast iron, concrete and asbestos drains/pipes.

We have the ability to reline pipes from 40mm in diameter up to 1 metre.

Are you licensed?

SA Pipe Relining is the exclusive South Australian accredited licensee of Nu Flow. Our accreditation requires us to ensure we meet annual national training seminars, regular training workshops and adhere to all quality and safety aspects.

We hold $50,000,000 Public Liability Insurance and are a CCF accredited company.

Can you guarantee your work?

Yes, all liners are guaranteed and warrantied for 50 years ensuring that it is free from any defects, subject to normal use, correct installation, reasonable maintenance and the exclusions set out in the terms of the warranty.

What is your experience in relining?

All our lining technicians have been extensively trained and are well versed in relining technology requirements and design. All technicians are qualified Plumbers and hold a Certificate III in Plumbing and Gas Fitting, ensuring all jobs can be handled in-house.

Do you provide free quotes?

All our quotes are provided free of charge.

We may however need to inspect the internal condition of the drain using CCTV equipment in order to accurately provide a fixed price for a job. In such circumstances will always advise our clients of the charges involved prior to proceeding with any work.

How can I pay?

We accept cash, cheque, direct debit and credit card payments.

We also offer interest-free finance through Open-Pay.

How do I know the job has been done correctly?

Post relining, all our customers are provided with footage of the newly lined drain as evidence that all work has been completed.

Generally our customers are onsite while work is being conducted and get to see the finished product first hand.
