Can PVC Pipes Be Relined?

How is pipe relining done?

To perform pipe relining, you need to first install a resin drain lining that attaches itself to the inner parts of the pipe. When the process is complete, heat or UV light is used to heat the pipes until they become solid and hard. Learn more about pipe relining here.

How long does pipe relining last?

Just like a new pipe, CIPP when perfectly maintained, can last for up to fifty to sixty years. However, the moment you fail to cure the CIPP, then you need to expect a reduced lifespan ranging from ten to fifteen years. The reasons behind this are that the liner may end up slipping or even ending up loose. This is opposed to a pipe that is cured since it may have many layers of epoxy applied after a certain period of time. We perform fix long-lasting CIPP in Adelaide.

Why would you reline a pipe?

Friendly, honest and absolutely a pleasure to deal with. We had a leak in the ceiling from a bathroom upstairs and we received great advice and service. The team knew exactly what the issue was and was able to sort us out quickly. I highly recommend Royal Flush Plumbing and will use them again. Thanks!

I had issues with my toilet drain blocking up at my place of business, Royal Flush came out and saved the day on a Sunday morning before an event I had planned Later on in the evening. I had a chat to Matt about renovating the toilet and adding on an additional toilet and a new shower/bathroom and to my amazement he made this happen and I couldn’t be happier. Royal Flush, nit only provided the plumbing removal and install of this little project….
