Introduction to Pipe Relining
Pipe relining is an innovative, trenchless method for repairing damaged pipes by creating a new pipe within the existing one.
Our use of materials such as epoxy resin ensures a secure and lasting repair by forming a new pipe within your home’s damaged sewer system.
This technology bypasses the need for excavating landscapes, establishing a new pipe lining in a minimally invasive way compared to traditional methods. Our innovative approach allows us to adeptly tackle and resolve leaks, cracks, and obstructions in blocked pipes, ensuring a lasting solution. Employing our CCTV drain surveillance gear, we meticulously inspect your sewer line before meticulously installing the new lining. This method enables sewer pipe relining with minimal disturbance to your home, as it can be conducted provided the pipe is accessible without excavation.
Pipe relining upgrades old pipes without excavation, providing a robust solution often completed in just a few hours.
Extending the life of existing piping, this technique offers protection that helps prevent leaks and safeguards against possible damage. Contact Mascot Plumbing to find out the benefits of the pipe relining process and how it can transform your pipes from the inside out.
Benefits of Pipe Relining
The relining process promotes a less intrusive repair approach, enabling damaged pipes to be easily rehabilitated by inserting a liner into pipe frameworks already in place. Our method involves inserting a liner into existing pipes, establishing a new structure within the old one, with minimal disruption involved.
Our careful sewer pipe relining service offers a durable solution, potentially extending pipe lifespan by 50 years. This technique also serves as a safeguard against future leaks, fissures, and disruptive tree root intrusions, alongside other typical plumbing challenges.

Preventative Measures for Maintaining Relined Pipes
To ensure the longevity of your relined pipes, we recommend utilising CCTV surveillance for regular maintenance. We recommend scheduling regular professional inspections every 2-3 years with Mascot Plumbing. Our specialists conduct thorough inspections using CCTV cameras to assess the condition and integrity of the lining within various pipe types.
Additionally, refrain from disposing harsh chemicals, acidic substances, solvents, or hot grease down your drains. These can degrade or damage the special resin liner within the pipe over time. Only allow regular household waste and rinse water to enter into your pipes.
Regular examinations and ensuring epoxy is applied correctly, while preventing harmful substances from entering your drains, will extend the life of your relined plumbing. Vigilant upkeep ensures a clean pipe system, conferring peace of mind about your pipework’s continued efficacy.

Cleaning Methods for Relined Pipes
To clean relined pipes while preserving their integrity, we use non-invasive techniques:
- Maintain your pipes in peak condition by regularly cleaning them with hot water steam, which cleans the liner in place. The high temperature can be used to dissolve any debris blockages and buildups in the pipe, effectively clearing the way for smooth flow.
- Employ a plumber’s snake to loosen and remove debris within the pipe. Exercise caution to avoid scratching the epoxy liner.
- Utilise specialised devices, such as a robotic cutter, for precise obstruction removal. Ensure pressure levels are suitable for relined pipes.
- As a last resort, use an eco-friendly, relining-safe drain cleaner to break down residue.
Avoid abrasive tools or harsh chemical cleaners that could erode the relined pipe. With the right preventative care, relined plumbing systems can endure for more than 50 years.

Chemicals and Tools for Cleaning
Use cleaning products that won’t degrade the epoxy resin liner when cleaning relined pipes. It’s prudent to ascertain that the liner is then cured appropriately:
- Hot water flushing
- Low-pressure drain snakes
- Plastic-safe compressed air devices
- Non-corrosive commercial drain cleaners (consult Mascot Plumbing for recommendations)
Avoid chemical drain cleaners containing sulphuric or hydrochloric acid, as these can damage the liner over time. Gentler enzyme-based or microbial cleaners specially formulated for relined pipes are ideal.
For professional assistance in choosing suitable chemicals and tools that are used repair and match the dimensions of pipes in your relined system, consult with the specialists at Mascot Plumbing.
Physical Cleaning Techniques
Employing physical cleaning methods like plumber’s snakes or hydro-jetting ensures a clear, clean passage, safely eliminating clogs in relined pipes. A plumber’s snake, acting as a long, flexible metal wire, can manually displace accumulated debris. To clear and clean, hydro-jetting employs high pressure to force out pipe obstructions with a powerful water stream, meticulously cleansing the pipe walls.
The key when doing a job that does pipe relining cleaning is to apply controlled force. An adept expert will gauge the ideal pressure level to apply, once again ensuring no removed pipe debris diminishes the robustness of the epoxy liner. Attempting these methods yourself risks accidentally scratching or detaching sections of the liner.
This is why we emphatically suggest engaging Mascot Plumbing’s professional services to tackle any cleaning of relined pipes, be it for sewage or storm water conduits. Our technicians are very professional, skilfully wielding requisite tools like customised snakes, hydro jets, and compressed air devices tailored for delicate relined materials.
Boasting over five decades of expertise, Mascot Plumbing’s team did great job working diligently to ensure the process was both safe and efficient.

Tips for Avoiding Future Blockages
Here are some helpful tips to avoid future blockages in your relined pipes:
- Dispose of food waste correctly, not by washing it down the drain, to avoid damaging your relined system - composting is a preferable option.
- Install strainers in sinks and tubs to catch hair, food scraps, etc before going down the drain.
- Avoid pouring fats, oils and grease down the drains as they solidify and clog pipes.
- Don’t flush non-flushable items like baby wipes or feminine products as they can get caught and cause clogs.
- Regularly use enzyme drain cleaners to dissolve organic buildup and prevent blockages.
- Schedule preventative maintenance checks every 6-12 months with Mascot Plumbing to spot potential problems early.
