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.

Years ago, if sewer pipes break, plumbers were called to dig lawns to access them. This traditional method of sewer pipe repair can cost much and ruin landscaping. Thankfully, a sewer repair method known as pipe relining is slowly, but steadily emerging.

Pipe relining is a relatively new method of repairing pipes performed by fitting a liner to the existing and broken pipes. Through this process, homeowners can avoid the hassles of excavating the old pipes. Due to the convenience it brings, many Australian homeowners are starting to favour pipe relining over other sewage repair options.

The old broken pipes can be repaired with little to no excavation at all. Since there is not much work involved, the total cost of the project will be considerably cheaper than traditional methods. Pipe relining is ideal for pipes with diameters as narrow as 40 mm to as long as 600 mm and can also run for 40-50 metres of pipe.

How Pipe Relining is Carried Out

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 Pipe Cleaning: The drainage problem will be identified and located using a CCTV drain camera.

CCTV Pipe Inspection: A camera is inserted down the pipe to determine the cause and severity of the problem.

Complete Pipe Cleaning: A thermosetting resin is prepared based on the acquired measurements. Then, the resin is impregnated into the liner by rolling it out for several times.

Setting Up The Lining: Once thoroughly cleaned, your plumber will insert the resin-soaked liner into the host pipe, then using an air compressor, will inflate the liner to fit to the diameter of the host pipe neatly.

Inflating The Pipe Liner: The resin will be given some time to cure so it can bond well with the old pipe. Steam or hot air will be used to accelerate the curing process.

Final CCTV Inspection: When the resin has set, another video inspection is done for quality control.

The Great Benefits of Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining in Double Bay

There are several benefits to look forward to if you opt for pipe relining such as the following:

Highly cost-effective – 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 – This process is quicker so it is expected that the sewage system will function efficiently again in a matter of just a few hours.

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.

The material is also known for being sturdy. It is expected that it can last for more than fifty years. That is our guarantee. It also helps protect the pipes from further damage due to root intrusion.

A long-lasting sewer system – We are so confident that your relined pipes will perform effectively for you for many years to come that we offer a 50 year guarantee.
