Frequently Asked Questions
Each job is unique and may require completion in stages which will vary from job to job however consider the following as a guide;
- Our resins come in various curing times; Slow, Medium and Fast and can also be hot cured for faster setting.
Slow - approximately 8-10 hours to cure
Medium – approximately 6-8 hours to cure
Fast – approximately 3-5 hours to cure
Hot cure - approximately 45mins-2 hours to cure
All curing times are dependent on the ambient temperature.
- Each liner is custom manufactured (generally off site).
- Every drain (or host pipe) requires preparation to ensure the internal bore of the drain is descaled, all obstructions and tree roots removed and properly prepared to accept the liner.
- Some jobs have very limited drain access therefore inspection openings may need to be inserted or raised to provide sufficient access.
All of the above contribute to time required on site to effectively complete the job however in most applications typical downtime of any single sectional lining of pipe would be no greater than 10 hours.
The liner is extremely strong, almost 4 times stronger than PVC!
It’s so strong that it can act as its own pipe (not just inside another). For example if your drain actually had a missing section, on the proviso that we can pull the liner through the missing section of drain, we’d be able to reline it, creating a structural pipe that is strong enough to take the weight of the ground above it and act as its own pipe.
