Potential buyers are given a presentation of the different methods available today together with a general briefing describing the process. An important part of this report are the interviews that took place with already established customers. Property owners, managers, pipe cleaners, and project managers whom all been in contact with relining have answered the questions given along with their own thoughts and have also given recommendations of other persons to talk to. Information has also been given the report through literature studies, fieldtrips, and meetings with some relining companies. The results presented in this report shows the relining industry to have satisfied customers, companies being very service minded, and that relining is a method worth considering if you´re in the need of taking care of old pipes. Relining your pipes is shown to be a very good environmental choice even though choosing a method containing epoxy with Bisphenol A. As a conclusion this report describes how relining can benefit to great savings, is an environmental good choice, and many times a quick and easy alternative to a traditional change of pipes.
Overall there are three cases where relining is a good choice. 1. If there is an acute leakage on the pipes that can’t be solved quickly in any other way. 2. If the apartment already has a recently renovated bathroom and the floor drain and sealing layer is in good shape. 3. In places where it would be very expensive or almost impossible to change pipes or if the building contains businesses vulnerable to disturbance.
