We can appreciate that for many people, knowing what to expect can be a little daunting, so we’ve outlined our step-by-step, minimal disruption process, to help you understand what to expect during drain repairs.
When most people think of plumbing trouble or a blocked drain, the’s been a leak detection either from a clogged toilet or a leaking faucet – not the need for a relining solution.
Repairs to these kinds of problems can be costly (compared to pipe reline cost), but often the solution is pretty straightforward like a plumbing pipe fix.
To help with these kinds of small fixes, if you are in need of Sydneys plumbing specialist or a strata plumbing expert, we can get you in touch with a trusted supplier for all your property management needs to be conducted by a professional plumber. They can help with emergency plumbing or your plumbing pipe relining needs.
Now let’s get back to the bigger problem if you have a blocked drain or your sydney pipes are burst and you need permanent pipe relining solutions.
This is required when the pipes under the house or lawn get damaged. That becomes an absolute nightmare. Unfortunately, there are only two ways to fix damaged pipes underground.
So is pipe relining worth it for property owners?
The first option to repair pipes can cost thousands of dollars in both the process and subsequent restoration. However, the second, the relining installation option, can be done in an afternoon with minimal to no exposure, at far less cost and minimal disruption to your day
Damages to underground pipes come from many different sources. In Sydney, root intrusions are a common culprit, compromising lines or stormwater pipes by slowly working their way through joints, seeking the water the tubing carries inside – leading to a burst pipe.
Because homes & pipework across Sydney (depending on the type of pipe) are old, some pipes develop cracks due to this age or environmental factors such as heat or moisture. In addition, heavy machinery or vehicles can easily crack sewage lines hidden beneath the surface of a lawn or landscape. Pipe relining in Sydney is a straightforward option for any of these problems. Here is how it works.
First, a Pipe Relining technician inspects the damaged pipes using a remote cctv camera – called CCTV inspections or drain inspections. You can also do this as an annual inspection to stay proactive towards any drain pipes or storm water pipes you think may have future problems. This is done using a robotic interface that allows the interior of each branch in the system to be examined closely for cracks or collapsed walls; this is the first step in the relining system. Once the damage is located, a high-pressure jet clears away the debris and any blockage that may have occurred due to roots or incursion. Only rarely do technicians need to actually dig a hole during a pipe relining job. However, quality repair specialists will always make it a priority to fill these back in after repairs.
Once the damage is located and the site is prepared, service personnel insert a specialised textile liner (the relining product consisting of epoxy resin) coated with an adhesive resin into the faulty channel using pressurised air or water. This process (called drain relining) inverts the textile liner, pushing the adhesive resin against the inside of the pipe as it expands to perfectly cover the damaged areas, creating a uniform protective seal across the length of the broken pipe. The pressure used to impress the liner against the walls of the cylinder is held steady until the resin has been set and cured.
Finally, once the repair is made and the liner has become solid, the technician will re-inspect the area using the remote camera. This confirms that repairs to the damaged section have been held and that all obstructions have been removed from the system. Once cured, the sewer pipe relining is a permanent repair. The textile liner and resin have a guaranteed lifespan of twenty-five years, and most will last over fifty under normal conditions – making relining your pipes a no brainer rather than even thinking about pipe replacement.
Underground pipe repair in Sydney traditionally consists of digging a trench along the length of pipe assumed to be the area needing restoration. This can be incredibly damaging to the surrounding landscape and structural foundation and is often done with a “best guess” of where the break or collapse actually occurred. If the rupture is located quickly, the old pipe is removed, and a new pipe is used to replace it. This removal exposes the entire area to whatever sewage the system contains for as long as the repairs take.
Even after the repairs are finished, cleanup and landscaping can take days, if not weeks, to complete.
But with trenchless pipe relining Sydney, repairs are made on the spot with minimal excavation. No pipes are removed and the only exposure to sewage comes from the initial damage. The textile liner is flexible and robust. It is injected into the compromised system in one smooth motion, sealing and repairing the passage without disrupting the surrounding grounds or building.
This is faster and less expensive than traditional repairs.
While trenches can ruin landscaping, traditional pipe repair inside a building with a leak beneath the concrete slab can mean tearing out entire floor sections with a jackhammer. Replacement and repair costs for returning a concrete foundation to its original state can quickly dwarf the pipe repair costs (find out more about pipe reline cost here) .
Relining minimises the repairs’ effect on the surrounding grounds and structure, saving property owners both trouble and money on their Sydney pipes.
Pipe relining, while a quick installation of the relined section, is not pipe patching. It is not a temporary repair that flakes away or washes off after a season. It is not something to be done in an emergency, to last until a proper repair can be made. This is the entire repair, done quickly and without complication or mess. It is inexpensive, permanent, durable and proven. While we don’t offer a lifetime guaranteed solution, we offer a 35 year guarantee on all work. Once the resin-coated textile liner is set in place, it will last dozens of years without the need for repair or maintenance on your Sydney home.
Whether the system has roots creeping in through the joints, a crack letting in the sand, or an entire section missing due to wall collapse requiring junction repairs, pipe relining is the only solution that makes sense. It is the easiest, most inexpensive way to quickly repair a compromised sewage or stormwater system. The Sydney Relining Company covers and services all areas across Sydney.
