So what does drain relining do?
This is a specialist, ‘no-dig’ technology for repairing broken or damaged pipes. It involves the installation of a lining which bonds to the inside of the pipe and creates a new pipe within the old one.
No excavation is required which makes it the most efficient and cost effective drain repair solution available and means a lot less mess and disruption for you!
This method also allows access and repair of pipes that are otherwise inaccessible such as pipes under a building or deep in the ground.
The Drain Relining Process
The first step is a CCTV drain camera inspection. We use this to pinpoint the exact problem areas in need of attention and give a detailed diagnosis and report.
Following this we use a high pressure water jet to thoroughly clean the existing pipework. This ensures a clean and even surface on the internal walls of the pipe for best results.
There are a number of different methods in drain relining and repairs. These include spray lining, inversion, cure in place, patch lining and UV lining, among others. Our specialist plumbers will choose the best option for your particular job.
Once the lining is in place and curing time is complete you will have structurally sound, good-as-new pipes!
LCL Plumbing drains services include:
- Tree root intrusion repair. The seamless pipe liner also prevents future tree root intrusion.
- Relining specific lengths of pipe, rather than fixing areas that are still in working order, reducing time and cost.
- Repairing cracked, broken, badly aligned and missing sections of pipe.
Drain relining is a ‘no dig’, trenchless method which can be used to repair pipes from 50mm up to 1,500mm in diameter.
The cost of drain relining is dependent on the size of the pipe, the length of pipe to be repaired and job difficulty. Relining junctions is more costly than relining straight lengths of pipe.
Each job is unique so at LCL Plumbing we quote each job individually. It is important that we understand the exact nature of the issue so that we can provide an accurate quote so there are no surprises down the track.
But don’t worry, we are very competitive on price and we beat pipe repair quotes! Call us today on 1300 553 173 and speak with one of our friendly, licensed plumbers about quality and cost-effective pipes and drains solutions.
Most drain relining jobs can be completed within 1 day, but of course this depends on the size and complexity of the job. Drain relining is a permanent drain repair solution and you can use your drain as normal once the curing process is complete. Curing usually takes between 1 and 24 hours.
Absolutely! The material we use comes from a supplier in Europe and has a 50 year warranty. We will also provide you with a plumbing certificate which is valid for 7 years.
Yes. Drain relining is a specialist job, so don’t risk time and money with less experienced plumbers. Experience and correct tooling are the most important components of success. If it fails or is installed incorrectly, it is likely that the pipes will need to be dug up and replaced, leading to further costs.
