When do you need your pipe relined?
If you own an older property in Sydney and surrounding areas, you may need to consider the state in of your plumbing. At some stage, older properties need to have their pipes relined, because they could burst easily due to them being corroded in certain areas. Commercial properties, with a high concentration of people and a plumbing system that is under constant pressure should do pipe relining at an early stage, compared to a system that is rarely used.
Over the years, pipes that are used in sewage and water systems develop holes. These holes need to be repaired to prevent costly and disastrous leakages. Also, if there is a broken pipe, your entire plumbing system may be inactive until the time it is repaired. The big concern with old pipes that are located underground is that they need be dug up for repair or replacement– unless you do pipe relining.
This allows the plumbing repairs to be done while pipes remain under the ground, doing away with the expensive process of digging up the pipes. This not only saves money, but also saves time and prevents damage to items that are located above or around the pipes. If you want to know more about this process, feel free to call our team today.
How does pipe relining work?
The first order of business is unblocking your pipes. The passage from one end of the pipe to the other needs to be totally cleared before pipe relining can start.
With the advancement of technology, pipe relining specialists now send a camera down the pipe to explore the cause and extent of damage. They can determine the exact problem of the plumbing, and decide on the best and appropriate approach for repair. Investigating with a camera also determines if major plumbing repairs are actually required, <u>saving you money</u> with a minor repair job that is <u>cheaper and easier</u> than you thought. This way, the work can be placed exactly where it is needed. Once the plumber knows what is needed, and the pipes are all unblocked, he injects a liquid repair substance into the plumbing system. This is meant to flow along the pipelines and stick to the sides, filling up the cracks and holes that it finds. It is an ideal solution for complete pipe relining with <u>no digging</u> at all.

Pipe relining is a simple procedure that causes less interference or damage to residential or commercial properties. Blocked drains need to be treated immediately in order to avoid additional damage and costs. It is very important to make sure that all drains are clean to prevent future problems. Drain pipes that are underground are open to multiple dangers without us even realizing it. Most of the time, underground pipes are neglected because people do not see them so they forget that they even exist. As they are in constant contact with underground water and tree roots, they are exceptionally vulnerable to breaking and clogging; as well as corrosion which is another cause of pipe breaking.
Our Pipe Relining Process
Choosing the right plumbing service provider is of utmost importance if you want to make sure that your drains and pipes are always in their top shape.
Our accomplished team has the equipment and skills especially targeted for all pipe relining and repair jobs. Our pipe relining process is outlined in six easy steps:
- CCTV inspection of the drainage system to determine and locate any problems within the drains.
- Hydro jetting the drains with a high pressure water cleaner, to clean the internal side of the drain and removing any roots or obstructions, preparing the drain for pipe relining.
- Liner is inserted into the drain and carefully pulled into position spanning over the damaged section of drain.
- Bladder is inflated with compressed air that expands and forces the epoxy filled liner to bond to the internal bore of the drain. The liner is then left to cure creating a pipe within a pipe.
- After the process is finished, the bladder is deflated and removed leaving the newly created structural liner set in place.
- A final CCTV inspection is conducted to make sure everything is in order.
The end result is a smooth and seamless pipeline capable of withstanding pressure, root penetration because of seamless and jointless structure and a smooth bore internal where calcification can no longer occur. This is because deposits will not stick to the inner walls of the new epoxy barrier lined pipe.
