What is Storm Drain Relining?

Storm drain relining revitalises your drainage system through trenchless techniques, which repair damage without a full system overhaul. This technique uses advanced relining technology, inserting a resin-soaked liner into the existing pipe to create a durable new inner layer.

The process utilises advanced trenchless methods, guaranteeing a clean operation with minimal disruption to your property. The resin cures inside the pipe, solidifying the liner to seal cracks and leaks, effectively rejuvenating your storm sewers.

Technicians create small access pits at entry points to insert a flexible, epoxy resin-saturated liner along the entire pipe length.

Storm drain relining combines time and cost-saving measures with efficiency to significantly extend the lifespan of sewer stormwater pipes.

Benefits of Trenchless Storm Drain Relining

Trenchless storm drain relining offers numerous benefits over traditional pipe replacement methods:

  1. Minimal disruption - Utilising the optimal no-dig approach, eliminating the need for demolition or excavation of homes, gardens, driveways, or infrastructure. Access is gained through small entry pits.
  2. Landscaping protection - Our cutting-edge methods preserve trees, plants, and lawns, even with pipe damage below.
  3. Enhanced longevity - Epoxy resin liners offer surpassing durability with a design life exceeding 50 years, outperforming traditional materials such as cast iron, concrete, or clay.
  4. Improved capacity - The seamless liners installed maximise water flow, addressing all your plumbing requirements.
  5. Cost-efficiency - Achieving substantial time-savings and up to 60% more cost-effectiveness than traditional digging methods.
  6. Adaptability - Our relining solutions expertly navigate pipes of any length, depth, or complexity, including multiple bends.
  7. Superior strength - The liners form a seamless, fully structural pipe that can endure freeze/thaw cycles and resist root intrusion.
  8. No contamination risk - Unlike pipe replacement, there is no risk of contaminating or damaging surrounding soil, land or waterways.

In essence, storm drain relining allows for the internal restoration of your stormwater sewer with minimal inconvenience. It’s an engineered, long-term solution that conserves sewer lines in your outdoor space while saving you money.

Longer Pipe Lifespan

Sewer relining guarantees enhanced durability of your stormwater drains as a long-term solution, offering over 50 years of reliable service.

  • Concrete stormwater pipes - 20 to 30 years lifespan
  • PVC pipes - Around 50 years lifespan
  • Relined pipes - Over 50 years lifespan

They form a robust new pipe able to withstand decades more wear and tear than the original. Exposing the old pipes can be avoided as the structural strength and waterproof integrity is now provided by the tough resin lining.

Being resistant to corrosion and freeze/thaw damage ensures that relined storm drains enjoy an extended life, translating into worry-free longevity built into your outdoor space. They won’t succumb to cracking, fractures and blockages over time like concrete or clay pipes often do.

In summary, a properly installed epoxy liner gives your stormwater pipes a new, 50+ year lease on life. Opting to reline instead of replace demystifies why we view it as an investment in your drain’s long-term viability.

Minimal Disruption

One of the biggest benefits of storm drain relining is the minimal disruption caused compared to traditional pipe replacement. As a trenchless solution that doesn’t require any digging, the relining process typically takes just a single day to rejuvenate your drains.

With such minimal downtime and up time for daily activities, you would be encouraged to use them again for your daily routines. Small access pits are cut at pipe entry points then our technicians insert flexible liners saturated with epoxy resin into the full length of your stormwater pipes. The resin cures and your system is rejuvenated from the inside, proudly leaving the site clean and tidy, with no external demolition required.

A storm drain relining project preserves your gardens, driveways and outdoor structures by servicing your sewer pipes with the latest trenchless techniques instead of destroying them. And with no trenches needed, his team ensures there’s no risk of soil or groundwater contamination. The process is conducted in a clean tidy manner, and also generates very little noise, leaving restored pipes immediately usable.

In summary, storm drain relining delivers all the benefits of a fully structural pipe renewal solution with virtually none of the disruption. Engage our team for a comprehensive relining service for your sewer stormwater system, completed swiftly in just a single day.

Cost Savings Over Replacement

  • Labour cost savings - Avoid the financial burden associated with excavating your garden, and replacing or refilling drain pipes.
  • Reduced time costs - Our efficient process completes drain repairs in a single day, as opposed to the weeks of disruption caused by excavation.
  • Lower material costs - Our relining technique requires fewer new materials due to the use of varied liner sizes.

Assessing if Your Storm Drain Needs Relining

There are a few key signs indicating your storm drains may need relining:

  1. Visible signs of a broken pipe, such as cracks, fractures, or holes in sewer pipes, that allow water ingress/exfiltration are red flags.
  2. Misaligned or separated pipe joints can cause leaks.
  3. Root intrusion potentially leading to blocked drains or disrupting your stormwater drainage flow.
  4. Corroded sections where the pipe integrity is compromised.
  5. Dips, sags or depressions trapping water and debris.

Our company conducts detailed pipe repair assessments for your stormwater system using advanced CCTV technology. High-resolution cameras are fed through your storm water system to identify any damage, blockages, root ingress or realignment issues.

Our analysis includes cctv footage capturing detailed measurements for lining diameters, materials, depths, configurations and junctions. We check the structural condition, noting worn, cracked or corroded sections. Problem areas causing leaks, water retention or subsidence are identified.

Understanding your storm drain system’s complexity enables us to determine if relining is the optimal choice. We’ll provide repair recommendations and a detailed pipe relining quote for either spot repairs or whole drain relining jobs customised to suit your stormwater system.

Materials and Methods for Storm Drain Relining

There are two main types of materials used to reline storm drains:

  1. Epoxy resin - A two-part thermosetting plastic that is the liner inserted into the pipe, then hardened through heating.
  2. Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) - Felt or fibreglass liners saturated with resin and inserted into the drain, curing to form a tight-fitting new pipe.

Acknowledging the urgency and complexity of your plumbing needs, we understand that our services must include industry-leading solutions for your pipe relining requirements, ensuring your stormwater pipes are relined with minimal fuss:

  1. CCTV drain inspection - Our thorough inspection gauges pipe condition and notes dimensions.
  2. Access pits - Small entry points are dug at pipe endpoints if needed.
  3. Cleaning and preparation - Old pipes are flushed and prepared for relining.
  4. Resin saturation - Liners soaked thoroughly with epoxy resin.
  5. Insertion - Saturated liners fed through the entire drain length.
  6. Curing - Resin hardens under controlled heat or steam, bonding the liner.
  7. Cool down and finishing - Newly lined drain is cooled, cut and reconnected.

We consistently offer durable CIPP or epoxy lining solutions suitable for storm drains of all sizes. Our plumbers apply specialised methods to relining your stormwater sewers with great care, ensuring no harm to your gardens or property. Our team, boasting over ten years of expertise, can efficiently and cost-effectively reline your stormwater pipes, harnessing the latest in materials and techniques.

Caring for Your Relined Storm Drain

To ensure longevity of your relined storm drains, some key maintenance tips include:

  1. Regular drain clearing - Have drains inspected and cleared of debris annually before winter to maximise flow.
  2. Check for leaks - Monitor any water pooling around pipes and contact us if leaks appear post-relining.
  3. No tree planting - Avoid planting trees near stormwater systems as tree roots might still compromise the integrity of your lined pipes over time.
  4. Protect access points - Maintain any entry pit lids or seals to stop soil/debris entering lined pipes.
  5. Check flow capacity - Monitor water drainage after heavy rain to ensure lined pipes have adequate flow rates.

We recognise the value of an inspection 12 months post-relining to ensure the liners have properly cured and settled in your stormwater pipes. This proactive approach helps in identifying any concerns with your existing pipework early.

Annual cleaning and checks will keep your pipes relined, ensuring clear drains operating at optimal capacity for over 50 years. Contact our team if you notice any problems. We offer warranties plus ongoing pipe maintenance and repairs to safeguard your investment.
