Pipes can always be relined more than once for pipes that have been damaged, leaking or cracked caused by improper cleaning or other causes. However, since the process is always complicated and the best, you will always be less likely to experience the need to reline your pipes more than once.
Usually, a plumber will finish the entire task within three to four hours. However, you also need to know that the curing process may last up to 24 hours. This is opposed to a re-pipe that is always estimated to take even up to weeks to complete.
Pipe relining began all the way back in 1971 in London, England when a man called Eric Wood had a leaking pipe under his garage. Wood having zero interest to dig up his entire garage floor to fix the damaged pipe invented a cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) that fixed the problem.
