Before you decide to get relining done, you need to know a bit about the different options. Generally, relining is done using one of several different materials. The types of pipe lining used are CIPP, GFRP UV, Patch, and Ambient cured.
CIPP pipe relining
CIPP pipe relining is a safe and cost-effective alternative to open-cut pipe repair. This innovative technology can be used in virtually any pipe type, and is widely used in the UK. The process is simple and involves little surface disruption. Since it was developed in England, CIPP has restored millions of feet of pipe. It is an effective solution for many different types of plumbing issues, including leaking pipes.
The process has many benefits, including flexibility in the pipe shapes and the ability to cure the relining material quickly. CIPP is suitable for a variety of pipe types, including culverts, sewer pipes, and ovoid pipes. It also can be applied to a variety of shapes, including circular, egg-shaped, pipe-arch, and rectangular sewers.
GFRP UV pipe relining
GFRP UV pipe relining for drainage works in a similar way to epoxy pipe lining, but instead of using glue or other types of chemicals, this method uses a thin, resin-based liner. The resin-lined pipe is fed into the broken pipe or drain, inverted to fit the shape of the pipes, and then cured. The finished product is a brand-new drain, which is suitable for pipes from 40mm to 225mm in diameter. It is also excellent for large, straight pipes.
Another advantage of using this process is that it is environmentally friendly. It uses a special resin, which is impregnated into a glass-reinforced plastic pipe liner. The resin is then cured under ultraviolet light, hot water, or steam. This process results in a tight fit and very little loss in cross-section, which is important for maintaining the flow capacity of the drain or pipe.
Patch lining is an excellent way to repair damaged underground piping. It helps prevent blockages and foul odours. It also helps protect the surrounding ground and brickwork from being damaged. The process also eliminates the need for costly excavation work. It’s quick and easy, and our highly skilled team can complete this work without causing major disruption.
One of the benefits of this method of drain repair is that it is able to repair leaky joints, rather than having to replace the entire pipe. This method can be performed in virtually any area, including under roads, railways, and deep pipes.
Ambient cured lining
Ambient cured lining for drains is a method of pipe repair that uses a polyester resin and a catalyst hardener. The resin is applied to a patch, which is inserted into the damaged pipe. The patch is then inverted to make sure that the resin migrates through cracks and fractures. The resin can be cured by air pressure or by a light train system using ultraviolet lighting. A CCTV camera is used to monitor the entire process.
Unlike the other two methods of drain repair, ambient cured lining is more suitable for small domestic and commercial premises. The resin is installed in the pipe using an inversion method. The water then warms up inside the pipe to initiate the curing process. This process is highly effective in preventing further damage.
CCTV relined drains
If you’re having trouble with your drains and sewers, you may want to consider CCTV relining. This innovative technique fits a protective layer into the pipes, forming a reinforced coating. The process starts with CCTV inspections to determine the extent of damage. After that, the pipes are cleaned to eliminate debris and intrusions. Next, high-pressure water jets are used to flush out the pipes and remove silt and scale deposits.
Using CCTV to survey drains makes the process easier. You don’t have to hire a professional engineer to inspect your drains. This technology is a fast and reliable way to ensure that your sewer pipes are safe. In addition, CCTV surveys can be used to identify land drainage issues.
