Balmain 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.

Three decades ago, the best way to address sewage pipe problems was through traditional methods. The problem with these methods was the inconvenience of excavation which disrupts properties, with the plumbing job taking days to finish. The good news however, is that newer technologies like pipe relining have been introduced.

No matter what type of pipes have been used in your sewer system, they are susceptible to erosion and/or blockages. Traditionally, when sewer systems have failed to operate efficiently, deep excavation has been required to repair the pipes. This is a costly, lengthy and destructive process, one which fills many with fear upon discovering that they need their sewer line repaired.

For sewer lines made of metal pipes, the changes are usually in the form of rust in several parts. For those made of clay or earthenware, ageing usually manifests in the form of cracks. In both cases, both facilitate the entry of roots.

How We Do Pipe Relining

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 sewer line must be cleaned from any debris using a high-pressure water jetting machine. Tree roots can be removed during this stage.

Measuring The Pipeline: The length and diameter of the pipe are acquired using a calibration tube.

Thorough Pipe Cleaning: The water jetter will be used again to completely clear the pipe of both debris and roots.

Installing The Liner: This will serve as the new interior of the damaged sewer pipe. To set it up, the calibration tube is inflated, and steam then introduced to cure it in place.

Curing Process: 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: Once the resin has set, a final video inspection is done to ensure that it has settled properly and any initial issues have been resolved.

The Benefits You Can Expect

Pipe Relining in Balmain

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.

It’s done quickly and with minimal fuss – 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 boost to your 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 – Once your sewer line has been relined, we guarantee it to work effectively for you for up to 50 years.
