Pipe relining is the process of repairing broken, leaking or blocked pipes and drains. Relining involves inserting a textile liner coated with epoxy resin into the broken section of drain. This then hardens into an inner pipe which is just a few mm thick. The process forms a strong and long lasting bond to the pipe and as it is structurally sound. It can also restore pipes where sections are missing or have separated. In short, we can complete the drain relining in under a day, so your drains can be back to their normal use in no time.

What are the benefits of relining broken pipes?

  • In some cases, pipe relining can be a cheaper option than digging up and replacing the existing pipes.
  • As we’re not digging dirt or breaking through concrete, it creates a lot less mess!
  • If the pipe in question is located under a tiled floor such as in a kitchen, it saves having to replace the tiled floor.
  • Doesn’t affect the structural integrity of buildings or infrastructure.
  • The process of pipe relining can usually be finished in under a day.
  • The end result is that it is actually stronger than new PVC pipe. It is in fact 10x stronger!
  • Pipe Relining can eliminate tree root problems in the relined section of the drain – for good.
  • Pipe Relining is Council approved.

​RTL Trades’ Pipe Relining Process

Step 1

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

The Relining Report, complete with before and after CCTV footage is prepared for you.

Will tree roots be able to break the drain or pipe once relined?

Because the end result of pipe relining is that it creates a joint-less end product, this ensures there is nowhere for the tree roots to break into the drain. The relined section of pipe is guaranteed against tree roots in the newly relined section of drain.

What size pipe will pipe relining work on?

Our RTL Trades technicians carry out pipe relining on drains and sewerage pipes sized between 50mm to 150mm. The pipe relining product we use is able to handle up to 90 degree bends and small changes in pipe diameter.

My sewer is badly damaged. What damage can be repaired and relined?

Pipe relining can repair any damage to the pipe, even if the pipe is missing in sections. This includes pipes that are damaged or otherwise defective due to: tree roots, cracks, old age, dislodgement and erosion. We are able to reline meters of the pipe at a time, or simply do a patch repair to a small section.

Is the process of relining the pipe disruptive?

As we are not digging to uncover the pipes like regular pipe replacements, there is little to no disruption to the surface, making the process trenchless. The drain however, cannot be used for approximately 6 to 8 hrs whilst the resin sets. If you compare this to traditional pipe repair, which can take several days to complete and includes a lot of heavy machinery, noise and mess. Pipe Relining is a much quicker process in comparison.

Of course, our Relining technician and/or our office will keep you updated during the process and completion timings.

What is the lifespan of a relined pipe?

The beauty of Pipe relining is a permanent solution. The life span of our material is over 50 years, which is actually longer than most modern PVC pipes!

How much does pipe relining cost?

After assessing and inspecting the pipe or drain with a CCTV camera, we are then able to provide you with a quote. It’s quoted on a case by case basis, we’re not able to quote on relining a pipe sight unseen.

Are there any types of pipes that can't be relined?

We can reline any type of pipe, from terracotta to PVC, cast iron or asbestos. Relining is a great solution, even if there is a large gap in the pipe as it will seal the gap. If the condition of the pipe is too far gone, we may have to replace it.

During our initial CCTV Inspection, we may need to clean the pipe. Our pipe relining technician will be up front and honest on our best steps.

Are relined pipes safe for the environment?

Absolutely – the new seamless pipe prevents infiltration and exfiltration and restores structural integrity of the pipe. Pipe relining eliminates joints – which can allow roots to enter the pipe and eventually weaken the pipe affected. The resin we use is environmentally safe and will not harm the environment.

    Carpenter

    Darcy Wilkinson

    I have been working with pipes, mostly trenchless repair, for 8-9 years now. When I was born, Doctors told my parents I would grow to be about 5’3″ tall and about 65kgs, not a 6′ tall woodchopper who was once ranked in the top 10 strongest people in Australia.

    Drainer / Reliner

    Edward Cook

    I’ve been working in the glorious trade of plumbing for over 5 years now. I have a bordering unhealthy habit of checking the BOM weather report. At RTL, I’ve enjoyed meeting people from all walks of like & all the interesting conversations that come with that.

    Plumber

    Henry Houghton

    I have been a qualified Plumber for 5 years now, most of that time with RTL (with a little break in between). I love the environment of the workplace here at RTL and enjoy the people I work with.

    Plumber

    Jordan Maxwell

    I’ve been in the Brisbane roofing industry for approximately 10 years. I love the fact that all the trades at RTL really look after each other, if someone has a question there is always someone to call and you are not left hanging.

    Roofer

    Mitch McKavanagh

    I’ve been plumbing for 3 years now. There’s nothing I enjoy more than throwing on a pair of speedos and having a beer by the water with family and friends. I enjoy working with RTL because I feel like I can approach anyone for a conversation, and I’m proud to call my colleagues my mates.

    2nd Year Plumbing Apprentice

    Robert Ryan

    I have been a Carpenter since 2009. My colleague Rhys Luke and I, are Div 4 Mixed Netball Semi-Finalists, and reigning Over 35 Div 6 Capalaba Plate Soccer Champions – achieved without winning a single game! I love RTL’s culture & how we dig in for each other and our community.

    Carpenter / Project Manager

    Peter Gatt

    This is my 6th year working in the plumbing industry. What I really enjoy about working at RTL is the collective support you have as a technician in the field. Whether my enquiry is with the office staff, management or with a fellow technician, everyone makes time to assist me.

    Plumber

    Jimmy Kenny

    I have been in the electrical trade for 7 years. I broke my collar bone attempting a bicycle kick at a football game (soccer). I enjoy that everyone gets along and it’s always a good fun environment at RTL. If I ever have questions there’s always an answer.

    Tradesman Electrical

    Dylan Robson

    I’ve been working as a Drainer and Pipe Reliner for 11.5 years. At RTL there is a positive energy in the office and out in the field. I always look forward to coming into work with a good bunch of guys and there’s never a dull moment.

    Drainer / Reliner

    Adam Muscat

    I love the variety that comes with working in Maintenance and Fitouts / Construction at RTL and also love the fact that RTL really get behind me and have been extremely supportive of my rugby career.

    Apprentice 3rd Year

    Jake Pappin

    I have been in the plumbing trade for 6 years. If I won the lottery, I would still be plumbing at least twice a week. What I love about RTL is our owners put on activities throughout the year. I have never seen a company who has looked after their employees as well and am happy to be here.

    Apprentice 4th Year

    Liam Gee

    I’ve been in the plumbing profession for 6 years. I love the range of different plumbing work that comes my way and the flexibility RTL offers.

    Plumber (Fitout / Construction)

    Morgan Gassman

    I’ve been working in roofing for over 13 years and as a roofer I’m always on top! If you think that’s dirty, get your mind out of the gutter (pun intended). I love working at RTL because of the great support everyone gives each other and people are willing to help when needed.
