If you've got trees in your yard, chances are you've got some level of damage caused by roots. Many people put off calling a plumber when they think they may have a problem with their pipes because they're worried about having their yards ripped up and it costing a fortune. While it's true sometimes this is inevitable, most of the time this kind of thing can be avoided by a great technique called pipe relining.
What exactly is pipe relining? Essentially it is repairing of pipes from the inside so there is no need to dig the pipe up and replace it. This is not only great for those wanting to avoid mess and expense, but also when the pipes are located beneath the house, pool or concrete driveway.
How does it work? An epoxy lining is placed inside of the existing pipe, and then forcing it to the sides where it conforms to the shape of the pipe, filling in gaps and creating a new, solid pipe within a pipe.
You get all the advantages of a new pipe without the mess and inconvenience of replacement. The best bit is that it's designed to last 50+ years so even though it's not a drama to do, you still won't have to think about it for a long time.
What if you only have a small section of problem pipe? No worries, we can reline just the parts of the pipe that need it - it's called patching.
