Repair pipes in place with no digging
What is Pipe Lining?
Pipe Lining uses trenchless technology and requires little or no earthworks to deliver a fast and permanent solution for repairing blocked and damaged pipes. Traditionally pipes have been dug up and replaced; now KBC Plumbing offers a cleaner, cost effective alternative without the disruption of excavation.
Our pipe lining technology is so flexible that it can be used to reline continuous lengths of pipe or provide short patches, reline multiple bends, boundary traps or create one-piece junction repairs. Suitable for storm water or sewerage pipes, KBC Plumbing system can be applied to pipe diameters ranging from 40mm up to 450mm
How does Pipe Lining work?
- CCTV is used to inspect and survey damaged pipes from existing access points
- Pipes are then cleaned using high pressure water jets and prepared for relining
- A liner is impregnated with epoxy resin and a deflated packer tube is inserted into the liner
- The liner is then inserted into the damaged pipe
- Once in position, the packer inflates and expands the liner to form the shape of the existing pipe
- This creates a new pipe within the damaged pipe
- The resin cures to form a permanent replacement pipe
- The packer is then removed to allow for immediate use of the pipe
- The epoxy resin used in KBC Plumbing’s system is chemically engineered specifically for pipe lining. It has the structural properties of a PVC pipe, offering the same hardness and flexibility as PVC, and is now certified to meet Australian Standards.
What are the advantages?
It’s the fast alternative
The use of trenchless technology means little or no excavation work is required. This results in minimal disruption to the surrounding area and faster job completion.
KBC Plumbing uses superior quality resins, engineered, manufactured and tested in Germany to ensure fast curing times and pipes that are ready for immediate use.
It’s the flexible option
Our pipe lining materials are structurally sound so they can span a range of pipe diameters, seamlessly line multiple bends and patch missing sections of pipe, all with the structural integrity of a permanent new pipe.
It’s a safer choice
By eliminating the need for destructive excavation, we are also eliminating the serious OH&S risks involved with operating heavy machinery and the risk of injury or death associated with deep excavation.
High quality materials and workmanship
KBC Plumbing only uses high quality, chemical resistant liners and styrene-free, non-toxic resins in our pipe lining process. Our high performance materials are engineered, manufactured and tested in Germany using world’s best practice and are Watermarked for Australian Standards.
It’s the cost effective solution
Excavating the area and replacing pipes is time consuming and expensive; using trenchless technology removes the need to dig and lowers labour costs. KBC Plumbing system means the job is completed quickly, cleanly and cost effectively.
Pipe Lining is the permanent solution
The combination of trenchless technology, years of experience and superior quality materials allow KBC Plumbing to provide long-term pipe lining solutions with minimal disruption to tiled, landscaping and paved areas.
Our high performance materials create a perfectly stable laminate layer within damaged pipes. This layer has the structural integrity of a new pipe; it can stand alone, even spanning voids in damaged pipes to create a new pipe within the old one. The result is a permanent repair to the damaged pipe, completed without excavating the surrounding area.
Big thankyou to KBC Plumbing for my new continuous flow heater. So very impressed, awesome job from start to finish. Same day service and they even cleaned up after themselves!!! Thankyou for your prompt service.
Our school was fortunate to have the KBC team carry out works for us recently. Exceptional, high standard of work is only the start of what you can expect. Add to that effective communication throughout works, flexibility and a desire to achieve the best possible outcome. This all resulted in a project delivered on time, competitively priced and completely stress free for us. We will definitely use this company again when the need arises.
I enlisted KBC Pluming to perform work in a number of our sites around Albury Wodonga. The biggest job done was the relining of old sewage pipes that were continually being blocked, KBC plumbing quoted promptly for the relining of the pipes, with the quote coming in considerably lower than any other plumber. The guys were quick to do the job it was by far less invasive and they worked their times in with us and our clients, so as we did not have reschedule any of our programs. I would have no hesitations recommending KBC Plumbing.
Kade, Mark and the team at KBC Plumbing are a pleasure to work with, in sometimes trying conditions. They always deliver projects on-time, on-budget and to a high standard.
