    "Depending on a few factors ie size of the line, overall condition and access to insert the liner. These variables will dictate whether a line can be repaired without excavation."

    "Yes, absolutely.
    It depends on the extent of the damage but I repair the pipes with a method called patch lining and repair with 500mm or 1m fibreglass and resin patches with the aid of a camera.
    Hope this helps.

    "You would need someone to come and inspect the drain in-order to determine if it can be fixed without the need for excavation."

    "Certain types of drain faults can be repaired, however, the fault must be correctly diagnosed and repairs can only be carried out on a case by case basis. High-quality contractors will always try and do the best for the client but this may not be a repair."
