Pipe Relining Solutions – Get the Right Lining for Your Pipes

Pipe relining - after patch liner has repaired pipe

When it comes to describing pipe relining, inserting a resin infused-liner into a pipe to repair it, is the simplest way to put it, but there’s a lot more that goes into it! When we arrive at a job that needs pipe relining, there are many factors that are taken into account before the job can be carried out.

Types of Pipes We Can Reline

It’s assumed by many that pipe relining only works on plastic pipes, but that’s not true at all! We’re able to repair your plumbing using pipe relining on the following (but not limited to) materials:

    • PVC, DWV, SWV, HDPE (plastics)
    • Earthenware
    • Concrete
    • Cast Iron
    • Fibro
    • Steel

    We are continually expanding our technology meaning we can reline pipes in an ever increasing range of diameters, so there’s no need to worry if your issues are in small or big pipes. We reline pipes from 40mm to 450mm in diameter and if you’ve got even larger pipes, we can find a solution for you.

    Types of Pipe Relining

    At Emu Pipe Relining, we use three key forms of pipe relining to ensure that each job is completed in the most effective way to prevent future plumbing issues.

    Patch Liner

    Patching is the most common type of pipe relining that we use. Patch liner repairs are ideal to repair small sections of drainage (sectional). This is used when there are a low number of issues to be repaired. These silicate resin infused-patches are installed directly onto the damaged areas, sealing them.

    Inversion Liner

    With a seamless liner that can be inserted into a long section of damaged pipeline, the inversion method uses air and water pressure to invert the epoxy resin infused-liner into the host pipe that has many areas of fault along it. This inversion liner is one single piece that we use for maximum strength. 

    Junction Liner

    Junction liners are to be installed only by experienced hands, as they require specialised equipment that needs patience and precision to be installed correctly. As the name suggests, junction liners repair broken junctions (branches and tee pieces) in pipes. So, if you’ve got damage in a branch line, you can still have it relined to repair it!

    We’ll repair the broken branch, tee or junction with a single resin infused-junction liner (in either glass, woven or felt-depending on application), ensuring the break has been completely sealed for good.

    • “Exceptional Service”

      We had a particularly tricky job on a site with extremely difficult access. Tony and Niles quickly investigated and set forward to fix the issue. When plan A didn’t go exactly to plan Tony took full control and delivered a brilliant outcome. He arranged machine access through our fully landscaped property, went over and above to ensure the problem was fixed, and left our property almost as he found it. I am, and will continue to recommend Emu Plumbing for any re-line and general plumbing work. Their customer service second to none.

    • “Emu Plumbing used latest technology combined with their considerable experience to creatively problem solve”

      We cannot fault Tony and the team at Emu Plumbing. We had a very complex reline of a long combine sewer that had plagued us for decades. Emu Plumbing used latest technology combined with their considerable experience to creatively problem solve over four days of hard yakka. It was over 36 degrees! The team were professional, courteous and went the extra mile to do the job. After three days on site they left the place clean and tidy as if they were never there. We would recommend Emu Plumbing without reservation.

    • “Thank you so much for a hassle free pipe repair.”

      Emu plumbing were the most prompt and competitive in pricing for an under slab pipe repair; which a few other companies actually declined as it was quite a complicated job. Tony from Emu Plumbing attended site with a “can do” attitude and completed the job after a long and tough day. I returned home to find the work area spotless. Thoroughly recommend Emu plumbing. Thank you so much for a hassle free pipe repair.

    • “Tony from Emu plumbing restored my faith in people.”

      Tony from Emu plumbing restored my faith in people. I contacted him after being quoted $13K to fix our sewer line by another company. Tony spent time with me on the phone going through all possible options to address this issue more economically. He then offered to come and inspect the sewer line at no cost. It turned out we did not have to do anything. Tony has found in us a client for life instead of a quick buck. We would be recommending him to all our friends and family.

    • “Do yourself a favour and call them!”

      Tony and the team at Emu Plumbing are amazing! Emergency sewer issue – no problem. His team leader, Niles, turned up the next day. Friendly, approachable, great communication, knowledgeable and hard working. Caved in sewer line was jetted to clean & clear, patch inserted and cured, in the end a hard clean clear pipe – like new. Problem fixed same day, and at a very fair price. I can’t recommend this company enough. Do yourself a favour and call them!
