Double Bay Pipe Relining

Vitrified clay pipes (VCP) were commonly used in many Australian households up until the early 1980s. VCP has become the go-to material because it is known for being resistant to many environmental factors and being earth-friendly, it is a great option for sewage systems. Despite its long life and resistance to sewage, it is still vulnerable to other factors that can cause damage. Tree roots, for instance, can cause cracks or break through the ceramic pipe, as can general wear and tear over time.

Over thirty years ago, the only pipe repair option for homeowners was to replace the pipes. This involved excavating the damaged pipes meaning that even pipes under the house needed to be removed. The extent of the work also meant that the work was costly.

This trenchless method of pipe repair, put simply, involves the insertion of a resin-saturated fibreglass or cloth liner to effectively create a pipe within the affected pipe, making it more resilient than before. This revolutionary process can be used with a wide variety of sewer pipes, ranging in size from 40mm up to 600mm.

Fortunately, there is a relatively new and far more practical pipe repair option available today – ‘pipe relining’. Using this method, there is no need for messy excavations. Pipe relining can be done within a day and performed on any type of sewer pipe ranging in length from 40mm to 600mm.

The Pipe Relining Details

The cure-in-place-pipe (CIPP) inversion method of pipe repair entails different steps. Here are the steps we take to ensure that we resolve your sewage issues properly:

Partial Sewage Pipe Cleaning: The pipe is partly cleaned with a water jetter.

Video Investigation: Next, a video inspection will be conducted to assess the pipe damage. You will be allowed to view the video footage to identify the cause of pipe damage or sewer clogs.

Thorough Sewage Pipe Cleaning: If it is confirmed that pipe relining is suitable for you, thorough sewage pipe cleaning is done before a cloth tube or pipe liner is inserted.

Setting Up The Lining: Inserting the liner or fibreglass or cloth tube is the next step. It can be dragged for up to 50 meters.

Curing The Liner: Once the liner is precisely in place, it will be left to cure for usually around 2 hours. If the host pipe is large, your plumber may decide to utilise steam to help the liner dry quickly.

Final Video Inspection: Lastly, another video inspection will be carried out to make sure the pipe relining has been performed with 100% success.

The Other Advantages of This Service

Pipe Relining in Double Bay

Pipe relining is still new and some people may be skeptical of this option. Australian property owners who have tried it would surely attest to the benefits that they enjoyed, which include the following:

Cost-effectiveness – As no digging is required, nor a large team of plumbers or a great deal of equipment, pipe relining is a far cheaper method compared to traditional pipe repair methods.

Fast and efficient – Since there is no digging involved in this task a lot of the time, expect to have a stress-free experience with this service.

A better performing sewer system – A big bonus of pipe relining is that it results in pipes that pass wastewater more steadily and pipes that are far more resilient to external forces such as ground movement and tree root invasion than ever before.

Furthermore, relined pipes are highly resistant to potential environmental threats such as the invasion of thirsty tree roots.

A long-lasting sewer system – Once your sewer line has been relined, we guarantee it to work effectively for you for up to 50 years.

Pipe relining is a method that we are experts at. Give us a call on 1800 552 758 and we will be glad to answer your questions.

I write to comment on your two employees, David and Matt, who did a great job at our place. Particularly David, who had been quick and helpful and patient with the numerous questions which had been asked and painstakingly showing us what had caused those problems relating to the repair work and the condition of the bathroom. The reason why we chose Dr.Drip to do the repair work is because of its friendly and professional service which we had encountered last year when Dr.Drip sent out another employee.Once again, thank you Dr.Drip for employing such valued staff to do a job and the really make or day. I think they deserve a “pat on the back”
