Replacing a damaged pipe is a lot of work involving digging up the damaged section, finding the right parts to replace them with and then repairing any damage done to the home or garden in the excavation process. Pipe relining has transformed the way that pipe repairs work. Instead of digging out the old pipe it is left in place and a small keyhole is used to insert epoxy resin into the pipe to reline the walls. Once the walls have been relined with epoxy resin the material is allowed to set and becomes a rock hard film over any damaged or cracked sections. Pipe relining has become the go to method of fixing broken pipe, drains and sewers in the Eastern Suburbs because it is far less intrusive and takes less time to perform than traditional pipe repair.

A damaged sewer pipe or shower drain can be a nightmare for any resident. Between the time it might take to find the right repair specialist to the loss of water or waste disposal it can be a real challenge. That’s why The Relining Company prides itself on providing fast and effective plumbing services while at the same time focusing on providing quality repairs.
The Eastern Suburbs are some of Sydney’s most luxurious and sought after residential areas in the city. Between their grand beaches, harbour views and historic importance there is no better area to live in the metropolitan area. The focus on nature and long history, however, also means that there are plenty of plumbing issues that often require fast and reliable pipe relining services.
The Relining Company decided to base our company in the Metropolitan Region as there are some of Sydney’s famous Landmarks such as Bondi Beach all the way through to Rushcutters Bay, Coogee and Bronte Beach. The Original Houses and Apartment blocks within these suburbs still remain the same with there Art Decor Character and Modern Architecture. Some of these unique features are priceless and the thought of having them destroyed or removed for sewer or storm water repairs would be Appalling.
We found that majority of our customers were based in the Eastern Suburbs. With all the Large Fig trees along the busy roads such as Paddington and Woollahra, The sewer and stormwater drains have been crushed and destroyed as well as the footpaths and roads.
Some of our memorable jobs would be relining stormwater downpipes for a high rise building we achieved in Elizabeth Bay which had same amazing views of the harbour or our Most recent job for a customer with a Waterfront home located on Campbell Parade North Bondi.
In 2016, we attended to an Emergency Blocked Drain for Waverley Bus station where the Main sewer to the building was surcharging in the late evening as the Depot does not close. We Jet blasted and removed the blockages to find tree roots growing in the drains from a tree which was more than 50m away. We attended onsite the next night and relined the main sewer to stop the growth of the tree within the drain. Doing this we were able to keep the bus depot open and not disturb operations of the Bus Depot.
Due to the increase in work in the area we based our head office in North Bondi and have relocated our factory in Alexandria keeping our work close to home.
Believe it or not, tree roots cause damage to pipes and drains more than anything else. This is due to the frequency by which clay pipes were often installed with rubber ring joints. Once the rubber joints started to break down, the drain would leak, allowing tree roots to get in. The tree roots invade the pipes and create problems with drainage.
Pipes are the veins and arteries of our homes and a fundamental part of how everything works together. They are also hidden behind walls, floors and the dirt in our backyards, making them an easy thing to overlook when planning a DIY renovation. Often you think you know where the pipes and drains are, you start digging and next thing you know you’ve caved in key pipes and drainage for your house, this happens more often than you would think.
Sydney has some very old infrastructure, and we have seen piping and drainage technology come a long way in the 200+ year history of this city. Nothing lasts forever, with old clay pipes finally giving way. There is also a lot of movement due to the city being built on Sandstone and Clay, particularly during long dry and wet periods, that also puts pressure on old pipes, which tend to have less flexibility and are likely to crack.
