How Pipe Relining Works?
We start by locating the blocked or damaged pipe on site. This way, we are able to get a full scope of the project ahead so we know the best way to fix it. Specialised equipment is then used to clean out the pipes to remove any blockages. Once the piping is clean, the epoxy resin-infused liner is inserted into the pipes using air and water to set it in place. The liner creates a completely new and water tight pipe within the old one.
