Broken sewer pipes or stormwater pipes can be fixed using the innovative pipe relining Technology.

Do you have a broken sewer pipe or stormwater pipe that runs under your concrete driveway, bathroom, house, pergola, established garden or a place that is difficult to access?

Have you been advised that it will all have to be dug up, your property damaged and then have the pipes replaced and then you are left restoring the trail of destruction?

This type of repair is a thing of the past! Pipe relining is an up and coming method of pipe repair that is being regularly used all over the world to repair damaged pipes.

Using this method means that the pipe can be repaired by using existing inspection openings within the property to repair the broken or old sections of pipe without the need for messy and costly excavation and is also environmentally friendly.

Aqua King uses the Nuflow product and technology, it is the best product on the market and even the manufacturer provides a 50year warranty against tree root intrusion, there is no other company that offers this length of warranty.

The reason such a long warranty is provided by the manufacturer is that epoxy resin has a life expectancy of over 100 years. Epoxy resin itself is used in the construction of fuel tanks for aeroplanes so this gives you an idea on just how strong and durable the product is.

Pipe relining technology has been used for well over 40 years, the Nuflow product and lining system has been used in Europe for over 20 years and here in Australia for over 12 years.

The Process:

The relining process begins with an initial CCTV survey of the internals of the sewer pipe and a subsequent site survey to determine the access into the pipe. From this the technician is able to identify the repairs that need to be undertaken and the process needing to be used to fix the pipes.

The next step is to clear and remove all of the debris from the host pipe in order to ensure that the resin sticks and seals to the host pipe and has a smooth finish.

The next step is the preparation of the lining material.

In this step the felt liners are cut to size and are impregnated with a 2 part epoxy resin, a rubber bladder is then inserted into the liner wound up tightly and then positioned into place via the inspection openings, when the position is correct the bladder is inflated and holds pressure until the resin goes off. Once the resin has cured the bladder is removed and you are left with a new structural pipe within the old pipe. This pipe now has a 50 year manufacturer warranty.
