The Relining Process
For ease of understanding, the relining process can be explained in six steps. Our planning process is the single longest part of each job ensuring we get it right the first time with, no dig, no mess and no fuss.
Our process begins with an onsite consultation and CCTV inspection of the drainage system to determine and locate any problems within the drains. The footage is recorded in full colour onto USB format and a complete report is created detailing findings. General findings may include, drain misalignment or collapse, missing sections, water ingress, tree root infestation and ageing infrastructure.
A custom made liner and bladder is then inserted into the drain and carefully pulled or pushed into position spanning over the damaged section of drain.
We then hydrojet the drains using a high pressure water cleaner, to descale the internal bore of the drain removing any roots or obstructions, preparing the drain for relining.
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 exiting drain. The liner is then left to cure creating a pipe with in a pipe.
Once cured the bladder is deflated and removed leaving the newly created structural liner set
A final CCTV inspection is conducted and the pipe is ready for full use and a lining report is prepared for the client.
