Pipe Rehabilitation

From R1100-00 per meter

Are you having trouble with broken pipes or a blocked drain? In the past your only option would be to have them excavated, today the simple process of pipe relining is often the preferred option.

With traditional trenching, you are usually required to pay a plumbing company to dig up the street, or your walls to remove the pipelines and replace them.

However with pipe relining, you can simply have them relined using a flexible tube coated with resin, which is pulled into the damaged pipe and inflated. The resin then hardens, creating a pipe within a pipe. This process typically involves digging just one access hole.

  1. Which types of pipes can pipe relining be used in?

Answer...
Our pipe relining technology can be used to repair sewer, stormwater, fire services pipelines, HVAC system and water mains, concrete pipes, pool pipes, copper pipes as well as property connection seal offs.
  1. Is this a proven technology? How reliable is it?

Answer...

While this particular technology is considered new in South Africa, it has been successfully used in Europe and the US for the last 45 years. It is a reliable technology that provides a very resilient pipe that will last for decades without any problems.

  1. What is the pipe relining made of?

Answer...

Pipe relining is made of an epoxy fibre glass reinforced liner that can withstand significant amounts of earth movements and pressure.

  1. Will a large portion of my landscape be dug up during this process?

Answer...

No, this advanced technology isn’t invasive and disruptive like traditional pipe repair methods. There will be little to no digging required. This ensures your landscaping and plantings aren’t damaged in the process.

  1. I’ve heard the pipe relining technique is very expensive, is that true?

Answer...

We source our products, equipment and processes from Germany which are far more efficient than the American franchise models. The pipe relining method is way cheaper than traditional pipe replacement. This is because no large trenches have to be dug and there is very minimal damage to the landscape and substrate . This means you end up saving significant amounts of money on fixing the resultant damage after the work is complete.

  1. How long will this relining last?

Answer...

Pipe relining is a tried and tested technology that had been used in the US and Europe for the last 45 years. The relining material we use has a life expectancy of 50 years.

  1. Does your company guarantee its work?

Answer...

We are a well-established company that takes our brand very seriously. We provide a 50 year guarantee for our work. Any issues will be rectified free of charge and you will be given a copy of the CCTV inspection. We are adequately insured for all projects that we take on

  1. How many days will it take for you to complete the work?

Answer...

This is a very quick and effective method of fixing damaged pipes and in most cases, it doesn’t take more than a day to complete the pipe relining. This significantly reduces the disruption on your property.

  1. Will the landscaping and plants on my property get damaged?

Answer...

In this method, we don’t have to dig trenches along the entire pipeline. Instead, one small trench might be dug at the end of the damaged line. When you opt for pipe relining rather than traditional pipe replacement, you can rest assured that there will be no damage to the various features on your property.

  1. Will there be much of a mess in my landscape once the work has been completed?

Answer...

Since there is minimal disruption and digging required, the cleanup required isn’t extensive.

  1. How will I know whether pipe relining is really required for my pipes?

Answer...

When conventional methods of replacement are more cost effective than relining , we prefer to refer you to a regular plumber. Our experts will use an advanced CCTV drain camera to identify whether there is any damage to the pipe. They will provide an objective opinion on whether pipe relining is a good solution for you. We will also show you visuals of the damage on the monitor so you get a clear understanding of what the situation is like. You will be given a copy of the before and after videos.

Advantages to relining your pipes

  • Save time – The work is done from the surface and the original pipe remains where it is. The job becomes less time consuming with fewer people on site. Downtime is drastically minimized . Most jobs are completed in less than a day.
  • Less invasive– There is no need to dig up the entire pipeline and that means your landscape, plants, masonry walls, concrete slabs, paving etc don’t have to be dug up and then fixed once the work is complete.
  • Cost-effective– The job involves less work , fewer staff and is completed within a shorter time frame. This reduces the cost of the repair process. The biggest saving is in the fact that you end up saving a significant amount of money on getting all the damage repaired (built in cupboards, tiles , fittings , landscape, plants, masonry, concrete slabs, paving etc). This drastically brings down the overall cost of the project to be a cheaper solution than replacement.
  • Clean-Up Is Easier– Since almost no digging is required, the clean up becomes considerably easier and your landscape and home can return to normal very quickly compared to traditional dig-up pipe replacement where a large portion of the landscape has to be cleaned up post completion of the work.
  • Strength and durability– Pipes repaired using this specialised pipe relining method are far stronger than PVC pipes. They offer better protection from root penetration compared to standard new pipe installation. While this technology is considerably new in South Africa, it has been used to great success in similar projects in Europe and the US for the last 45 years. Our relined pipes come with a 50 year guarantee.
  • Wide range of applications – Our versatile technology can be used to repair sewers, stormwater, fire services pipelines, HVAC system and water mains, concrete pipes, pool pipes, copper pipes. Most pipes can easily be repaired in one day and we provide iron-clad guarantees for our work.
