MPG Reline Process

Three stage process

Drains Cleared – Drains are cleared using a drain machine or hydrojetter (high pressure water jetter)

 Balloon Inserted;

  • Custom made balloon/bladder is inserted into drain through an inspection opening or access point and positioned in damaged sections of pipe
  • Once the liner is in place the bladder is inflated using compressed air
  • Pressure from air moulds resin into pipe, filling cracks and damaged pipe

Epoxy Sets – Once cured and set the balloon / bladder is removed from drain leaving the reline structurally sound

MPG Relined Pipe – MPG provides a 50 year product integrity guarantee on all MPG pipe relines.

Blocked Drains Caused by Tree Roots

Traditional drain clearing does not always treat the root of the problem, in particular properties that experience ongoing issues with tree roots blocking drains will benefit from pipe reline solutions.

The most common cause of blocked drains are pesky tree roots, root enter the drains through hairline cracks or damaged areas in pipes and drains in search of water. Drains offer the perfect camping ground for roots offering a constant source of water and nutrients. Over time they work their way through the pipes trapping debris flowing through the drains slowly causing blockages. Ignoring warning signs of blockages including gurgling sounds from drains, slow draining showers, toilets and sinks and overflow from grates can result in more extensive drain repairs and work.

Mackie Plumbing recommends regular drain maintenance to prevent blockages and maintain the integrity of your drains and pipework.
