Common Causes Of Damaged Pipes​

Our pipes tend to tell stories of wear and tear. A whole range of factors contribute to their damage, making pipe care an essential part of home maintenance. Here are the usual suspects of pipe damage:

  • Environmental Conditions: Weather patterns and soil composition can stress pipes, leading to cracks and breaks over time.
  • Aging Pipelines: Like all parts of a house, pipes age over time. However, older pipes, especially those in historic homes, are more prone to deterioration.
  • Material Quality: The type and quality of materials used in your pipes play a significant role. Over time, subpar materials can lead to leaks and blockages.

Signs Of A Damaged Pipe

It’s important to keep an eye out for the not-so-obvious signs that your pipes might be crying for help. Here’s what to watch for:

  • Unexplained Leaks: Spot a puddle where it shouldn’t be? That’s a classic sign of a pipe in distress.
  • Mysterious Water Stains: These unsightly marks on walls or ceilings are often the silent alarms of pipe issues.
  • Dwindling Water Pressure: If your once-powerful shower feels more like a trickle, it could point to a pipe problem.

Benefits Of Pipe Relining

Pipe relining gives your plumbing system a boost for years to come. Here’s why it’s a smarter choice compared to traditional plumbing repair methods:

  • Cost-Effective: Say goodbye to the hefty costs of traditional pipe replacement. Relining saves your wallet by fixing pipes without the need for extensive excavation.
  • Minimal Disruption: Forget about turning your garden into a digging site. Pipe relining fixes pipes without leaving a mess or disturbing your daily routine.
  • Long-Lasting Durability: Relined pipes aren’t just repaired; they’re reinforced. This means they’re tougher and more resilient against future plumbing problems, giving you peace of mind for years.
  • Eco-Friendly Approach: By avoiding major digging, relining is kinder to your garden and the environment. It’s a green choice in more ways than one!

Our Process Of Pipe Relining

So, how do we transform your troubled pipes into smooth-running systems? Here’s the pipe relining process at Done Right Plumbing:

  1. Inspection

First things first, we get to know your pipes up close and personal. Using state-of-the-art CCTV camera technology, we explore your plumbing system to identify the exact issue. It’s like giving your pipes an X-ray to see what’s really going inside.

  1. Cleaning

Next, we clean the pipes using high-pressure water jets. This step isn’t just about tidying up; it’s crucial for prepping the pipes for their new lining. We’re essentially clearing the area for the main job to begin.

  1. Lining

Now comes the main event – the lining. We insert a flexible, durable liner coated with a special epoxy resin into your pipes. It’s a bit like threading a needle. The needle is the affected pipes in your plumbing system, and the thread is a high-tech liner.

  1. Resin

Once the liner is in place, the resin works its magic. It moulds to the interior of the existing pipe, creating a strong, seamless new pipe within the old one. This isn’t just a patch-up job; it’s a complete pipe makeover.

  1. Curing and Finishing

Finally, we let the resin cure. It hardens to form a robust, new pipe surface that’s ready to take on water, pressure, and time. After a final inspection to ensure that everything is just right, your plumbing is back in action, better than ever.

Types of Pipes Suitable for Relining

Think of pipe relining as a versatile solution that gets along with nearly all kinds of pipes. Here’s a quick peek at what types work well with our relining method:

  • Metal Pipes: Whether it’s iron, steel, or copper, relining breathes new life into these classic pipes.
  • PVC Pipes: Already a modern choice, PVC pipes are easy to line for long-term durability.
  • Clay Pipes: Relining adds a layer of strength and resilience to these traditional pipes.
  • Concrete Pipes: Tough on the outside, but relining makes them even tougher within.

Cost & Time Considerations

When it comes to pipe relining, here’s the lowdown on cost and time:

  • Cost Range: Prices vary based on the pipe’s condition and length. Generally, it’s a more wallet-friendly option than traditional pipe replacement.
  • Time Efficiency: Most relining jobs are quick, often completed in a day. The exact duration depends on the pipe’s length and condition.
  • Factors Influencing Both: The complexity of the job, accessibility, and pipe diameter all play a role in determining both cost and time.
