What we can do
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.
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.
