Drain Repairs Process

How we repair broken, cracked or blocked drains

Pipe Relining Tree Root Damage Repairs

Our process begins with a customer consultation and CCTV inspection of the drainage system to determine and locate any problems within the drains. The footage is recorded in full colour onto USB format and a complete report is created detailing findings.

We then hydrojet the drains using a high pressure water cleaner, to descale the internal bore of the drain removing any roots or obstructions, preparing the drain for relining. This ensures the internals of each pipeline are thoroughly and uniformly cleaned.

Pipe Relining Tree Root Damage

A custom made liner and bladder is manufactured and then inserted into the drain and carefully pulled into position spanning over the damaged section of drain.

The bladder is inflated using compressed air which expands and forces the epoxy filled liner to conform and bond to the internal bore of the existing drain. The liner is then left to cure.

Pipe Relining Tree Root Damage

Once cured the bladder is deflated and removed leaving the newly created structural liner set in place, creating a ‘pipe within a pipe’.

Pipe Relining Tree Root Damage

A final CCTV inspection is conducted and the pipe is ready for full use. A lining report detailing the completed job is then prepared for the client.


The result; a creation of a smooth, seamless pipeline or sectional repair resulting in a ‘pipe within a pipe’ capable of withstanding pressure, root penetration and smoothing out all misalignments, cracks and missing sections or drain.

The seamless and jointless structure creates a smooth internal bore where calcification can no longer occur as deposits will not stick to the inner walls of the new epoxy barrier lined pipe.

Millions of linear meters of pipelines have been restored worldwide using this simple but effective technology. SA Pipe Relining has both the experience and advanced technical knowledge to meet your specific needs. The applications for relining are endless and regardless of the depth or height of the pipeline or corrosive nature of the environment, SA Pipe Relining has a solution at hand.

Hydrojet Drain Cleaning

A hydrojet is a high-pressure water hose connected to a powerful nozzle, that pushes out large amounts of water to penetrate drain blockages, cut through tree roots and descale drains.

SA Pipe Relining has the capability of hydrojetting bathroom drains through to Mainline drains. With various techniques and equipment, SA Pipe Relining is fully prepared to combat a wide variety of situations. Hydro jetting cuts and removes tree roots from drains and descales the internal surface of the drain, helping to identify any damaged sections and promote better drain flow
