Thousands of properties in Victoria were built with cast iron drains and sewer pipes. None of these systems will last forever as cast iron will eventually succumb to rust or cracking in a constantly wet environment.
Replacement of a cast iron drainage system involves major disruption of both the fabric of a building, along with the lives of the occupants and can be both time-consuming and expensive.
Innovative Technology for Pipelining
Fortunately, innovative technology has the answer: our pipe lining system effectively puts a "pipe inside a pipe" by using a 2-part epoxy product inside an inflatable lining.
Where the situation potentially involves disruption to multiple tenants, pipelining can save tens of thousands of dollars by avoiding the traditional removal and construction costs.
The cured-in-place pipe restoration process is an economical and efficient alternative to replacement. Our technology allows us to restore and renew aged, corroded piping systems to a “better than new” condition without removing them.
The epoxy liner we install within the pipes’ interior is inflated until it cures, sealing and protecting your pipes from further deterioration and dramatically extending its life.
The process is applicable to a variety of piping materials; clay, concrete, metal, iron, steel, PVC, and fiberglass.
Epoxy pipe lining is accomplished by fabricating materials on-site and running resin-soaked liners through damaged pipelines.
The two-part epoxy cures in place creating a structural bond to the original pipe material, with a start-to-finish project time of one to two days.
Epoxy pipe lining comes with a 10-year guarantee and reduces traditional job costs by an average of 50 percent.
The structural liner process is a patented, non-destructive technology that allows anyone occupying the building to continue with their daily activities — preventing displacement, business closure, and minimizing pipe system downtime.
