Drain Relining Services in Auckland

Drainage issues in residential and commercial properties can vary from normal leaks to hidden blocks to rodent infestation to elusive problems with water ingress in the basement. If you have been dragged around over similar issues and have been taking the brunt of recurring expensive bills, we can help you. There was a time when fixing a drain pipe meant a lot of digging up the earth, manual labor, and expensive materials. With the growth of technology and CCTV cameras, it is now easy to fix damaged pipes that are buried meters under the ground. Drain relining is a smart method where the damaged pipes are lined with a newer and stronger material to fortify their endurance and life span.

What is Drain Relining?

In this method, the cracked drain pipes are fixed using a new pipe called the “lining.” These lining pipes are gradually inserted into the damaged pipe without excavating the whole site. Drain lining falls under the No-Dig Repair Technology approach which utilizes an arrangement of aligning drain sleeves equivalent to glass-reinforced plastic.

Drain relining is very effective to mend broken or leaking joints and cracks along the circumference of the pipe caused due to blockages. It can also successfully fix the damages caused due to tree root invasion in the drain lines.

Our expert drainage technicians can help fix even the most damaged pipes with drain lining and transform them into smooth-flowing pipes. It takes a certain level of experience, which we have in abundance, to detect the notoriously tricky defect locations. We use the most modern technology and equipment to rectify these damages, protect the environment from wastewater leaching into the soil and ensure better longevity for your drain network.

Where can drain relining be used?

Sewer and drain lines are as essential to your property as electricity and drinking water supply. Make sure to routinely check your pipes for leaks and blocks to ensure your drain is working the way it should.

Drain relining is one of the most popular ways of fixing drains without excavating the whole structure. Essentially, in drain relining, we are inserting a newer and more resilient pipe into the existing broken ones.  It is cost-effective and more importantly, suitable for both commercial and residential buildings.  It can be implemented in drain pipes, sewer networks, storm water drains,  down pipes, and main pipelines, etc.

With epoxy relining technology, any type of pipes or fixtures placed at multiple angles bends and junctions that have been damaged due to adverse conditions can be relined.  With this technology, it is now possible to fix only the damaged part of the pipe and not replace the entire setup. This saves time, money, and labor and also improves the efficiency of the pipes.

How is drain relining done?

1. Drain Inspection

The first step of the drain lining process is that we will perform an exhaustive evaluation of the current state of the pipes, and the extent and severity of the damage. CCTV cameras are used to survey the insides of the pipes to make informed decisions on how to fix the defects.

2. Clearing Of Debris

The next step is to clear out any blockages inside the pipes. These may include tree roots, piled-up debris or any other waste matter clinging to the insides of the pipelines. Usually, we use  hydro jetting machines to remove these blockages, which is followed by a thorough cleaning session. This step is important and non-negotiable because a clean surface ensures a stronger bonding of the relining material to the pipes.

3. Preparing the lining

Different types of drain damage require different types of pipe lining. On the third step we will prepare and finalize the type and dimensions of the required pipe lining based on the requirement.

4. Installation

There are two ways we install pipe lining in the drains. The first method is called inversion, where a resin mixture is poured into the drain liner and rolled repeatedly. The mixture needs to be distributed consistently to get the desired thickness. The final structure is then inserted into the damaged pipe with the help of inflated airbags and fitted to the shape of the pipe walls using water pressure. The second method is called GFRP UV pipe lining. In this method, the lining is inserted into the defective pipe using standard cables and tools.

Both methods are equally effective. We can ensure you that the installation is done only by trained technicians because accurate fitting is crucial for efficient drainage and durability.

5. Treatment

Once the installation is done, the lining is allowed to harden and bond with the insides of the pipes. If we are using the inversion method of lining, it will harden by itself. If necessary, we will use hot water to accelerate the hardening process. If it is the GFRP UV process, the pipelines need UV lighting exposure to achieve the desired hardness.

6. Follow-up Inspection

Our technicians will conduct one final round of evaluation and inspection on the effectiveness of the curing process and that the pipeline is now ready and good to go. This inspection is also done using CCTV cameras.

Benefits of drain relining
