Pipe relining is a long-term solution due to the product having a 50-year life expectancy. We guarantee a 25-year warranty which comes with every relining job, no matter how small or large.
How does pipe relining work?
Our process begins with a customer consultation and CCTV inspection of the drainage system to determine and locate any problems within the drains.
We then hydro jet the drain using a high-pressure water jet and cleaning tools to clean and prepare the pipe. A custom made liner and bladder are manufactured and inserted into the drain and carefully pulled/pushed into position, spanning over the damaged area.
The bladder is then inflated using compressed air which expands and forces the epoxy filled liner to conform and bond to the internal bore of the existing drain.
The liner is left to cure, creating a pipe within a pipe.
Once cured, the bladder is deflated and removed, leaving the newly created structural liner set in place. A final CCTV inspection is conducted and the pipe is ready for full use.
How much does pipe relining cost?
Every job is different, depending on factors such as accessibility, risk, pipe size, length and the number of junctions. This is why our process begins with a customer consultation and CCTV inspection of the drainage system to determine and locate the specific problem with the drains. This allows us to provide a free, no-obligation quote with the most accurate pricing.
Be aware of companies willing to quote on pipe relining without visiting the site and inspecting the pipe thoroughly. You could be in for a nasty surprise after you have already committed your hard-earned money.
Why do most plumbers not recommend pipe relining?
Most plumbers lack the equipment, training, and certification needed to carry out pipe relining.
However, there are some cases when pipe relining is not an option and an excavation is necessary, such as when a pipe has collapsed.
How can I tell if pipe relining will fix my problem?

What are the symptoms of blocked drains?
Slow Draining – One of the most apparent signs of a blocked drain is slow emptying of the sink or tub. The problem typically becomes worse over time. Slow drainage can also occur in the shower and cause water to accumulate on the floor.
Foul Odours – When a blockage is present in your plumbing, water, hair and debris continuously accumulate. Stagnant water and decomposing solids have a pungent odour that can spread through the air and be detected in the area around your sinks, showers, tubs and toilets.
Gurgling Sounds – A drain that is blocked locally will often cause the effected fixture to gurgle as the water drains. If you have a main sewer drain blockage, you may hear gurgling in your tub or shower when you drain your sink as well.
Changes In Flush – A blocked drain can make the water levels in your toilet rise higher when you flush, or it could affect filling and lead to lower water levels in the bowl. A main sewer drain blockage can also cause water to flow into the tub or shower when you flush the toilet.

Pipe diameters that range from 40mm – 225mm can be repaired. Sections of pipe as short as 30cm can be relined.

The process for pipe relining begins first with the plumber completing a consultation with the client and an inspection with a CCTV drain camera to determine what condition the pipes are in and if there are any blockages that need to be cleared such as tree roots and sediment build-up. A high-pressure water jetter is used to clean the pipe and remove any obstructions, after this another inspection with the CCTV drain camera is conducted to confirm that all obstructions are cleared. Following this, a custom-made liner and bladder are inserted into the pipe and carefully manoeuvred into position. The bladder is inflated with compressed air which forces the epoxy filed liner to expand to the interior lining of the pipe and mould to it. The liner is left to cure and after it is set, the bladder is deflated and removed, leaving a newly formed pipe within a pipe. Another inspection is undertaken to confirm that the pipe is ready for use. Your pipe is now stronger than it ever was!

What is pipe or drain relining?
No one wants to go through the process of having their garden ripped to pieces so broken pipes can be replaced – but there is no longer a need to go down this traditional path!
Pipe relining is a plumbing technique that has been available for quite a number of years but is still a largely unknown alternative to pipe replacement. As the name might suggest, it is a process where plumbers can reline the inside of a pipe instead of having to replace the whole thing.
The way this process is completed at Network Plumbing begins with a CCTV drain camera inspection of your pipes, so the plumber can see any problems in the drain. The pipe is then jetted with a high-pressure water jetter and cleaned with special tools.
A special Network Plumbing liner and bladder is then inserted into your pipes, the bladder is then inflated by the plumber so that the epoxy filled liner can mould itself to the internal structure of the existing pipe. Once it has cured, the newly relined pipe will be seamlessly sealed and extremely durable.
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive about pipe relining is that, “if it’s as good as you say, why aren’t more plumbers using it?” The answer to this comes down to cost and tradition. Many other plumbers are stuck in their ways and are comfortable with the old process of replacing pipes as they know exactly what needs to be done and how it will need to be done.
It is also quite a costly process invest in new methods as plumbers need to be trained and equipment needs to be purchased to make it all possible.
Here at Network Plumbing, we hold our customers as our number one priority and understand that it is a far better approach for customers for a number of reasons…
