What we can do
Damaged plumbing can be a serious headache, not only making everyday activities like showering and cooking difficult but also endangering the integrity of the house by threatening water damage to the home and garden. The Relining Company has built a reputation on providing efficient plumbing services, getting on site fast and repairing the damage before it can grow into a serious issue.
The Inner West is one of Sydney’s great gems. Close to the city but out of the hustle and bustle it has historically been one of the most sought after areas of Sydney to live in. However, this prime location also comes with a hodgepodge of different architectural styles and plumbing systems, which makes the experience and reliability of The Relining Company highly sought after in the area.
Understand the problem
Blocked and leaking pipes are a common
problem. In the not too distant past, underground plumbing used to drain water from residential and commercial buildings was installed using traditional clay pipes.
These clay pipes were installed in sections of
approximately 1 metre in length and joined
together using a rubber ring seal. Like most things made of rubber, these joint seals perish over time and when they do, they begin to leak water into the surrounding soil.
These leaking drain pipes not only wash away the supporting soil, they provide a rich source of nutrients for the surround plant life. Nearby trees, shrubs or any plant life for that matter, are attracted to the nutrient rich water leaking from the pipes.
The trees or shrubs start by spreading fine roots that reach out for the moisture, penetrate the drain pipe joints. They grow longer and larger over time, eventually forming a blockage, preventing the flow of water in the drain.
We often find that people compare the cost of repairing the drain with jet blasting maintenance.
However, this can result in more issues.
Roots will come back, often thicker and stronger and harder to remove.
Drains becomes blocked and wash away soil, causing collapse.
If you leave it, these problems become harder to resolve.
