Pipe Connection Repair Systems
In instances where a defective pipe connection is identified as the cause of leakage, infiltration or
tree root ingress, Abergeldie offers Flexiliner, Tiger T and Top Hat systems for pipe connection repair.
Flexiliner (between 100 – 150mm) is an ideal product to repair house service lines connecting into
sewer reticulation systems, and maintenance of private and commercial businesses connected to
sewer reticulation. Flexiliner is a trenchless lining system that installs a structural liner through the
entire length of the existing pipe.
Both the Tiger T and Top Hat systems work to repair and seal branch connections (100mm +) up to
and including the first joint. The Tiger T or Top Hat patch is filled with resin before being placed over
an installation packer. The junction seal is then positioned into the host pipe at the location of the
connection, whereby the installation packer is inflated to position the seal until the resin hardens.
