Our team of skilled and knowledgeable plumbers are experts when it comes to pipe patching, relining and general pipe repair.


Pipe repair methods

In order to repair a pipe with current plumbing techniques, it really depends on the type and extent of the damage to the piping in question. The 3 most used methods we use today are:

Pipe Relining

Pipe relining involves the use of inserting a lining tube inside a damaged pipe which may have a crack or a leak and is perfect for longer lengths of pipe and piping in inaccessible areas. This stops the need for extensive earthworks to remove and replace the pipe and it often ends up stronger than the original piping. For more information about our Pipe Relining Services you can check our page on the topic right here: pipe relining

Pipe Replacement

Self explanatory and involves the costly removal and either a complete or part replacement of the pipe itself. This also involves considerable earthworks to the surrounding area and disruption to services utilising the pipe.

Pipe Patching

Similar to relining, the technique known as pipe patching also allows the pipe to be repaired without having to completely dig up the pipe itself or disrupt any attached fixture. Patching is generally needed for localised fractures or breaks in a pipe and the process generally takes a few hours.

Pipe Patch Repairs

Instead of relining a whole pipe, only part of the pipe needs to get patched. Not only is Pipe patching the most popular form of pipe repair, it is also the most cost effective. Patching can treat smaller cracks and leaks in your pipes which do not require full relining or replacement. It is a durable option, meaning it won’t need regular replacement or attention and will permanently fix the issue without large scale excavation works or labour costs.
