Despite the cool shade, beauty, and fruits offered by trees, their roots can cause sewer line problems, especially in earthenware or clay pipes. Once tree roots have made their way into a sewer line whose rubber rings have moved so much with the passing of time, certain debris will get caught leading to blockages. You may begin to notice the early signs of a blocked drain which include rising of water in the toilet bowl, gurgling sounds from your drains, overflowing sewer gully and unpleasant smells in certain areas of the property.

Root penetration in earthenware pipes can lead to cracks, eventually broken sewer lines. Due to the disadvantages associated with the traditional methods of pipe repair, we are introducing a newer solution called pipe relining. This process does not require deep excavation making it a more suitable repair option than conventional methods. Although pipe relining is commonly referred as a no-dig solution, minor excavations may be required to create access points.

I’m interested. How will you go about this?

Good to know! Here are the steps of pipe relining:

    Partial cleaning – A hydro cleaning machine will be used to clear the pipes to get it ready for the video inspection.

    Camera inspection – A CCTV drain camera is inserted into the pipes to check the extent of the damage, what caused it, and where the damage is located.

    Complete cleaning – The hydro-jet is used again, and this time, it is used to clean the affected pipe thoroughly. Tree roots can be removed during this process.

    Complete cleaning – The hydro-jet is used again, and this time, it is used to clean the affected pipe thoroughly. Tree roots can be removed during this process.

    Lining material installation – A machine called an inverter, also known as shooter, will be used to invert the lining material so it forms a new interior within the damage pipe. Steam or hot water must be used when the pipe relining jobs involve larger pipes.

    Video re-inspection – The camera is inserted again to see if the new lining has been properly bonded with the host pipe to ensure quality work.

Why Pipe Relining?

  • Absolute protection. Once installed, the lining offers absolute protection versus the roots of trees.
  • Does not take much time to finish. Compared to the usual way to sort this problem out, which requires a lot of time, this can be accomplished in hours.
  • Long-lasting and durable. The installed lining can last decades in your property.
  • Hassle-free. As mentioned above, the entire process is a hassle-free one because there is no digging involved most of the time, and because no digging is involved, you do not have to worry much about how the excavated portion of the property can be put back together again.
  • Cost-effective. No digging means lesser costs.

What pipes can be relined?

A lot of pipes can be relined including:

    Earthenware pipes
    Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
    Cast iron
    Copper
    Concrete
