Pipe Replacement Solutions Pty Ltd (PRS) has been specialising in Trenchless replacement of sewer, water and stormwater-mains by means of pipe bursting, upsizing and slip-lining relining and horizontal directional drilling since 1997. In 23 years PRS have successfully replaced more than 150 km’s of mains. From the beginning of 2008 we have also entered the relining market and established an affiliate company Relining Solutions Pty Ltd (RS) for relining work in order to be able to offer our customers in addition to our traditional products, a proven AM-liner relining system alternative. PRS also established a sister company “Hydrovac Solutions Pty Ltd” in mid 2012 to undertake Hydro-vacuum digging work.

An office in Canberra ACT was established in 2008 and has grown to be a major part of our business, with clients and contracts in both the local Government and the private sector.

As a family owned business, the directors are closely involved with day to day operations of the company ensuring only the highest quality of work at all times. Thanks to a progressive, hands-on approach over many years, improvements and advancements are continuously being made to provide clients with the best possible outcomes. PRS uses polyethylene piping for all applications which is renowned for its flexibility, versatility and cost effectiveness.

We pride ourselves on creating great relationships with our clients and providing them peace of mind when undertaking any new project.
