What is pipe relining?
Pipe relining is a system that has been around for over 25 years (but it is relatively new in Australia!), allowing plumbers to repair pipes without having to complete major earthworks. Essentially, a tube-like lining is placed on the inside of the affected piping instead of the excavation of the surrounding area and physical removal of the pipe. This new lining is often stronger than the original pipe itself, meaning the longer term outlook for the piping is of a stronger nature.
Additionally, many pipe blockages are caused by tree roots growing through cracked or damaged pipes and are blasted out with water jets (known as ‘ jet rodding ’) as a removal technique. This however merely fixes the blockage – it doesn’t deal with the area of the affected pipe in which the root managed to get through in the first place. Pipe relining fixes this problem, meaning you shouldn’t have a blockage from a tree root in that spot of the pipe again
Should piping get relined or replaced?
If there is some damaged piping that needs attention, there is basically two available options – relining or replacement. But what is the best option? When it comes down to it, pipe relining does really have more benefits than the full replacement of the affected pipes. This includes :
- Cost : relining is generally cheaper than replacement, due to the high labour costs of replacement and a bigger project to complete
- Convenience : the relining of pipes is a shorter process, involving less excavation works and less work to return the property to its original state, as it is on a smaller scale
- Longevity : it may seem a little strange, but pipe relining is often more durable and long lasting than replacing the piping due to it being a better quality material than a lot of older piping around
- Landscaping : if your property has expensive landscaping, relining does not require a full excavation of your property – it only focuses on the section of pipe affected – so no extensive upheaval of your property
In saying this, in some instances a pipe may be damaged beyond repair, meaning replacement may be the only option, or if you are completing some major renovations. We can help you figure what is needed for your situation.

BLOCKED DRAINS FAQ
Plumbers eel vs water jetters
Blocked drains can be a totally nightmare! The stinking smell, backing up water, slowly draining sinks, and gurgling toilets are just some of the signs of blocked drains. Luckily the drains can be cleared easily with the help of important tools in the arsenal of a plumber like a plumbers eel or water jetter. But which is better to clear a blocked drain?
The ideal method used to clear the drain depends on the cause of the blockage and its location.
Who is responsible for blocked drains?
To find out whose responsibility is it to repair blocked drains - property owner, council or tenant, a plumber should be called to identify the root cause and location of the blockage. If the blocked drains are in your property, it is your responsibility or your tenants.
However, there are a lot of grey areas and there should be ample evidence to pinpoint which party caused the damage. If the blockage is outside your property, your local council is responsible. Contact your local plumber, they can tell you who is responsible for the blocked drains and claim the expenses from the council if needed.
Pipe Relining vs Pipe Patching
There is no one best way to fix a pipe and before your plumber would even consider which method to choose, we need to determine the cause of the problem itself. In some case, blockages can be alleviated by the simple use of a high-pressure jet rodding. In order to repair a pipe with current advanced plumbing techniques, it really depends on the type and extent of the damage to the piping in question.
