All about no-dig drain relining
Published: August 06, 2018 Last Updated: October 24, 2022
Why would you use pipe relining on a blocked drain? Clearing a drain will get the water flowing away, but it isn't a long-term fix. Relining the drain offers a permanent, no-dig solution that leaves the relined section which is stronger than the original pipe.

Lee: So Lachie the drain has been cleared. There seems to be a crack in it. What do we do now?
Lachie: Well mate, we need to get a reline down there. Now reline is basically a no-dig solution to fixing the drain.
Lee: So what are the steps involved?
Lachie: Well the first step is we prep the reline bladder, so we set that up on a tarp and then we put a special reline sock over it. Once we've done that we coat the sock in a special reline resin. Then we slide the reline using push rods over the affected area and inflate.
Lee: How long does it take for the resin to set?
Lachie: That takes anywhere between three to six hours but that depends on the type of drain. When that's done we deflate the bladder and remove it then you are left with a reline that is stronger than the original pipe. We then offer a ten year guarantee on the reline.
Lee: Well Lachie we've relined the drain is anything else I have to worry about?
Lachie: No Lee that's it so all the cracks in the affected area have been completely sealed up.
Lee: Great that's exactly what I want to hear.
