What is Pipe Relining?

Pipe relining is a non-invasive method of repairing sewer or stormwater pipes. It uses state of the art technology to bring damaged – and previously blocked pipes – back to being essentially brand new and structurally sound.

The greatest benefit is there is no need to dig and replace damaged pipes. Gardens remain intact and the costs are minimised when compared to drainage excavation.

Metropolitan Plumbing has been in the blocked drains business for over 25 years and pipe relining is the gold standard solution we love to use. Your damaged drains will last a lifetime and you can stop worrying about nasty blockages.

Have you been dealing with repeated clogs, flooding in the garden, or worse? Give us a call today and we can have a local plumber at your door within the hour* with a long term solution for all your plumbing problems.

How Does Pipe Relining Work?

To begin, our highly trained plumbers perform a CCTV drain camera inspection to locate the blockage. For thorough cleaning, the likely choice of tool will be high powered jet drain cleaning.

After the pipes are cleared, and we’re confident pipe relining is a viable solution, we’ll prepare a custom sleeve. Only a simple entry point is required for the sleeve to be fed through the drain.

Once in place, the sleeve is inflated using compressed air. The outer layer bonds to your existing piping and sets in place.

Following the bonding process, we deflate the sleeve and it’s removed. We’ll give the pipe one final CCTV inspection to confirm the process was successful.

In a short amount of time, your pipes will be reinforced like new and are expected to last for another 35-50 years.

FAQ - All You Want to Know About Pipe Relining

Have some questions about pipe relining? We've got the answers you need.

In most cases, we’ll recommend pipe relining as an alternative to any full pipe replacement. Due to the non-invasive nature, it’s a far more efficient way to repair pipes. There’s no need to dig up your garden, and it can be more affordable. The benefit of pipe relining is it works on cracked pipes, pipes with missing sections or pipes which suffer from repeated blockages. By contrast, a full replacement is often our last resort. Drainage excavation is a more intense process, but necessary when a blockage is too serious or the pipes are beyond repair. It’s not a true alternative to pipe relining, rather it’s the option we recommend when nothing else will work.
Yes. The brilliant thing is its versatility. Sewer pipes, cement, stormwater, PVC, cast iron, fiberglass, pipe relining resin can bond to all materials. In each case the solution is always long term and there is a proven track record of success.

Trent was brilliant, arrived on time and did a great job replacing our kitchen mixer tap on a Saturday evening after our existing tap fell apart. Hoping we don’t need emergency services again, but would definitely use them again!
