How We Overcome Challenges In Commercial Pipe Relining Projects

Dealing with the complexities of commercial pipe relining projects requires a blend of innovative solutions, expertise, and a deep understanding of Sydney’s specific challenges. In this insightful guide, we’ll unpack the layers of two transformative case studies from our portfolio:

  • The University of New South Wales (UNSW), and
  • Scot’s College in Bellevue Hill

These real-world scenarios paint a vivid picture of the various issues, damages, and disruptions encountered in the industry of pipe repair and lining. They also illuminate the impactful solutions employed, highlighting the integral role of experience, technology, and a dedicated team in delivering quality, cost-effective pipe relining services.

Join us as we journey through the intricate pathways of these projects, exploring the unique challenges faced and the innovative solutions forged to ensure the integrity, durability, and longevity of essential plumbing systems within these significant Sydney institutions.

Leaking downpipe issues at the University of New South Wales (UNSW)

University of New South Wales' building

About the Project

The University of New South Wales (UNSW) reached out to us, seeking a proficient solution for leaking downpipes that were causing substantial interior water damage, especially prevalent during periods of rainy weather in Sydney.

The Challenge

Our team was met with 150 mm metal downpipes that were considerably aged and affected by rust and corrosion, resulting in holes that allowed substantial water leaks. The project presented unique challenges, such as securing essential tools and equipment at elevated heights, necessitating specialised permits and an enhanced focus on safety protocols and regulations.

How We Fixed It

In addressing this issue, innovation was key. Our team utilised a slow-cure resin, strategically opting for this method in the relining process to effectively combat the leaks.

Given the impressive 20-metre height of the pipes, the conventional use of water as a curing agent was impractical due to gravity’s influence, which would cause the liner to elongate and descend. Instead, air became the chosen medium, minimising the weight and enabling the liners to effectively cure overnight, thus reducing the risks and enhancing the project’s efficiency.

This approach led to a triumphant resolution, significantly mitigating the problems of water leaks and demonstrating the adaptability of our pipe relining solutions.

Leaky downpipe issues at Scot’s College in Bellevue Hill

Scot's College

About the Project

Scot’s College in Bellevue Hill is enriched with historical significance, featuring a building adorned with original copper roof sheets and intricate decorative elements that add to its architectural allure.

The Challenge

Our team encountered a unique challenge in a copper downpipe, the function of which was to collect roof water. A problematic leaking point, where it was interconnected with a new PVC pipe, was identified.

Complicating the repair process, this joint was encased within a wall, rendering it inaccessible. Despite its subtle nature, the leak had been persistently troublesome since the original installation, remaining undetected and unresolved for a considerable duration.

How We Fixed It

Given the historical and decorative aspects of the building, conventional pipe replacement wasn’t a viable solution. With strategic precision, our team secured rooftop access, facilitating the insertion of a sectional reline to adeptly seal the defective joint, ensuring the pipe’s integrity was restored and safeguarding the property from water damage.

This repair process was executed efficiently, completed within a concise timeframe of half a day, and orchestrated with minimal disruption, allowing the school’s routine and the students’ activities to proceed with little to no interference.
