5 Benefits of Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is an option that many homeowners are not aware of when it comes to finding a solution for pipe problems.

So, before you consider digging up your perfectly manicured garden to install new pipes, let’s have a look at five benefits of relining.

What is Pipe Relining?

Relining, as the name suggests, is the process of relining old or broken pipes from the inside with a special resin solution which restores pipework to its former strength and, in some cases, makes old pipes even stronger than when they were originally installed.

Pipe Relining is Less Intrusive

Perhaps the biggest advantage of relining over traditional pipe replacement is that there’s virtually no intrusion on your property. This is especially true when it comes to problem pipes that are under driveways, paths or heavily landscaped areas. In the old days, a damaged pipe would certainly mean a lot of trench digging to find the problem pipe, repair or replace it. Relining technology gives your plumber the ability to solve the problem without the need to excavate and replace.

Relining is Long Lasting

Most resins used in relining come with decades-long warranties. These resins are often so strong and durable that they can render pipework even more robust than what it was when first installed. Properly completed relining will ensure that you won’t have to worry about pipe problems on your property for years, perhaps for the rest of the time you live there.

Stops Roots in Their Tracks

Roots making their way into your pipes is a surprisingly common problem here in Australia. Holes and fractures in pipes are an open invitation for these roots to get in and become a massive problem for you and your household. Relining seals any potential entry points and ensures that tree roots won’t become a future problem.

Relining Can Increase Flow

Properly completed relining will leave a smooth finish to the inside of your pipes. Compare this to damaged clay or corroded cast iron pipes and you’ll understand how much better the flow will be with resin relining.

Quick and Easy

Traditional techniques tend to be slow and messy. It usually involves digging trenches and having to deal with messy pipe waste. And that’s not even considering just how long it might take your plumber to locate the damage. Modern relining techniques can reduce the time spent on a conventional pipework job from weeks to days and, often, from days to hours.
