All too often clients want their drains permanently fixed without destroying their gardens, driveways or concrete slab. At Proximity Plumbing, we aim to provide clients options such as pipe relining which avoid the high costs and inconvenience of more typical pipe repair which involved excavation.
With our latest technology, we can use a two-part epoxy, which is pulled through the pipe and expanded to leave a hard fibreglass shell, which can’t be penetrated by roots. Although only relatively new to Australia, pipe relining has been tried and tested overseas for over 25 years and has a life expectancy of over 50 years.
At Proximity Plumbing, our typical pipe relining ranges from as small as 50mm up to 250mm in diameter with some of the liners being over 100m in a continuous run. This prevents any joints in the line and ensures a strong bond when repairing sewer, stormwater, earthenware, copper and cast-iron pipes. Having no joints ensures in most cases better protection from root penetration than newly laid pipes.
We use only the leading products from Germany called Brawoliner® for our inversion pipe relining as it’s been tried and tested overseas for so many years. Having great products isn’t enough, we also have invested in training overseas and state of the art trucks specifically designed for relining works.
Lastly, our pipe liner is designed to be tough. So tough that it’s up to four times stronger than a brand-new pipe.
