WHY DRAIN RELINING?
Drain Relining is a cost-effective and efficient way of repairing broken, missing and collapsed sections of drains, either below or above ground, without the need of costly excavation, pipe replacements or repairs.
With drain relining we are able to eliminate any costly excavations and replacement of existing drainage pipes. Avoiding excavations saves you the costs of installing a new driveway, the hassle of excavation and the amount of time required.
NO DESTRUCTIVE EXCAVATION
Drain relining will avoid excavation, cost less, have quicker turnaround time, without any structural disruption to normal operations of a business or residence. The relining process is non-intrusive with minimal disruption and maximum cleanliness.
By digging up the ground to get to a broken pipe, we would need to disturb the surrounding environment. With drain relining, we don’t need to use heavy machinery such as excavators to dig up any ground – we save the surrounding environment.
Traditional drain replacement can take up to 2 weeks depending on the difficulty. With relining, we can achieve a better result and it can be done in as little as a day, getting your home or property back up and running faster.
DURABLE AND RELIABLE
Drain relining is extremely durable. Due to the reline that gets inserted into the pre-existing pipe, it helps to strengthen the existing pipe whilst having a 50+ year minimum life expectancy on its own.
INCREASED FLOW CAPACITY
The smooth surface provided by the resin increases the flow capacity by eliminating obstructions that can build up in the pipes. Our epoxy liners have a smooth surface that keeps your pipes clean, allowing smoother flowing drains.

HOW DOES PIPE RELINING WORK?
Our 5 Step Sydney Drain Relining Process
The first step of the process is to find out precisely what is causing the issue within the pipe and where the damage is. We send our specialised CCTV drain camera down the drain to see what is happening inside the pipe. We use the drain camera to look for any blockages that may need clearing, any damage that is apparent and any areas that we will need to repair.
Once this step is complete, we are able to decide on the best way to get the pipe ready for relining.
Unblocking & Cleaning Pipe
If we find blockages in the pipe, we use our high pressure water jet to clean the pipe of any debris, and to ensure the surface of the pipe is clear. This enables the relining resin to be able to adhere to the old pipe properly.
We rarely have to dig a small hole to access the inspection opening, however all our clients are kept informed through the whole process and we ensure the site is restored to its original state.
Camera Pipe Inspection
After clearing the pipes in step 2, we look at the pipe again with our CCTV drain camera. We do this to make sure that the pipe is clear of debris and ready for relining. If we are satisfied that the pipe is clean and debris-free, we locate any damage and make a note of its exact location.
Relining of the Drain Pipe
Our process starts with mixing the resin and then inserting the liner (which has been filled with the resin) and bladder into position. We then use compressed air to inflate and set the liner into place, creating a new pipe within a pipe.
Final Quality Check
Once the original pipe has been completely lined, we now cut out any junctions with a robotic cutter. And then you have a brand new pipe within a pipe.
