Damaged Pipe Issues
Roots in pipes and numerous dislodged joints are some of the main issues we find when addressing stormwater problems.
Having your stormwater lines relined will save thousands of dollars in having to excavate down to the lines and replacing them manually

The Old Method
The traditional eel and excavation
In previous years if a drain or a junction or a section of pipework was affected by roots or became dislodged and began causing serious drain issues, the section which was affected had to be dug up, causing significant damage to driveways, yards and underneath pathways which meant the site would be turned upside down in order to have the pipe repaired.
This left the homeowners feeling stressed and anxious that a beautiful garden, or a concrete pathway or a section of stairs needed to be ripped up and destroyed
The New Method
Advanced trenchless pipe relining
Fast forward and today we now have the trenchless pipe repair technology and tools to tackle any pipe relining job one may have throughout Sydney and is a fantastic way of repairing your drains without causing extensive damage to one’s property.
It is a fast, seamless, and great way of basically lining your existing pipes with a 2-part resin which is mixed and inserted into the damaged pipe which comes with a 25-year warranty
What is the process?
Clear the blockage
Once we have cleared the drain using our high pressure drain cleaners, a CCTV camera inspection is conducted on the line. All faults and issues will be recorded onto a USB with photos taken before any relining is completed.
Our camera has a sond in built into the cameras end meaning we can pinpoint exactly where issues are found above ground using a locater which transfers a signal to surface level with the exact depth and location
Preparing & inspecting the line
Once a reline has been given the green light, we need to thoroughly clean out the lines ensuring all roots, debris and any foreign matter is removed ensuring once the 2 part resin and liner are inserted into the pipe, it creates a strong bond between the pipe and material we are inserting into the line itself.
We run the risk of issues occurring during the reline process if this step is not exercised correctly
Beginning the relining process
Once we have marked out and cut the liner to exact length, the 2 part resin is poured into the liner and rolled out with the use of a roller to ensure even distribution occurs throughout the entire liner material.
Once this part has been completed, an inversion drum is used to inflate the liner onto the edges of the pipe. This is a critical part of the process. A loss of pressure or any sudden changes in excessive pressure need to be closely monitored closely as this could damage the liner.
The liner is now left to cure. The liner sets at a faster pace during summer. We can also add a summer agent to resin or use hot water to cure the liner at a faster pace
Completion & Inspection
Once the liner has formed and cured, a CCTV camera is sent into the drain and the entire resin is thoroughly inspected to ensure proper formation around the circumference of the pipe has been achieved.
All necessary junctions’ cuts using a robotic cutter is now sent through and cut where needed. A recording of the reline will be given to the homeowner for future reference

No damage to landscape property
No damage to landscaping is now required. We have had multiple jobs where homeowners have spent years perfecting their gardens and the thought of having all of that destroyed due to a sewer or stormwater pipe disheartening. Having the pipe relined now means the gardens and landscaped areas can remain intact
No excavation needed
No excavation of concrete, floorboards, tiled areas needed. Especially in older homes where if we needed to excavate down and replace a section of pipework out underneath a driveway for example, matching the existing concrete which has been there for years, matching the colour would be virtually impossible leaving the aesthetics of the concrete looking out of touch
Save thousands of dollars in costs
Put simply, you save thousands of dollars if the above needed to be completed and damage to concrete pathways or landscaped areas needed to be destroyed then reinstated. On average you will be saving about 40% on distances exceeding 6m of pipe relining which could have previously needed to be dug up and replaced
25 years product warranty

Again, safety is at the upmost importance when excavation is being carried out. Relining eliminates all excavation needed
Pipes or services where lines have been laid at a very deep depth
Once excavation passes 2.2m, timber shoring is required legally to protect trenches from collapsing. Relining saves time, risk, and money when lines have been installed at a depth past 2.2m and need replacing.
Lines running through properties or floors
When lines run through properties or floors which previously would have had to be excavated down too, to rectify the issues
