A lot of the time blocked drains and pipes are simply the result of tree roots clogging drains and damaging your plumbing. The old way was to dig up and replace existing pipes and drains.
A new technique is to line them with a new core pipe. The core is manufactured in continuous lengths, eliminating joints and cracks which can lead to root infiltration. The pipe is manufactured from a felt core which is impregnated with a complex polymer resin. The core is then winched or pulled into position and, once set, the resin activates, leaving the new pipe actually stronger than the old!
This enables pipes with diameters from 100mm (4 inch), to 300mm (12 inch), – lengths from 1 metre (3 feet) to 100 metres (100 yards) may be repaired with less disruption and greatly decreased costs.
The rehabilitated, lined drains even have better flow, resulting in increased efficiency & strength. Unblocking of drains is now a breeze!
