Trenchless or no-dig pipe repair (also known as pipe relining / rehabilitation) has plenty of advantages over the older, traditional method of plumbing, making it the clear choice when it comes to a number of plumbing issues such as clearing blocked drains, patching up damaged pipes, and repairing the junctions from pipe to pipe.
Though traditional plumbing and pipe relining have similar goals – basically, to get one’s pipes and plumbing infrastructure working again, there is baggage that the older method has that the new pipe relining one doesn’t.
During the renovation process, a flexible textile liner is soaked in resin and then inserted into the inversion drum then released into the damaged pipe using pressurised air or water.
The process completely lines the inside of the old pipe and eliminates any existing or potential damage. The resin cures at ambient temperature, however, the process can be significantly reduced by passing warm water or steam through the liner. Curing creates a completely new watertight pipe within the old one and creates a strong permanent solution to your old damaged or blocked pipes.
After the new pipe lining process is complete the robotic camera will survey the pipe and slowly cut out the junctions that have been covered over by the CIPP process and any other branch lines. This process usually only takes a day or two max and is done out of Prime Pipe Relining’s trucks that are equipped with the latest most advanced technology.
Home owners are able to leave the premises and go about their daily routine as we have power, air and water equipped in our state of the art trucks.
