Gladesville 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.

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.

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.

The Steps Involved In 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 Cleaning of Damaged Pipe: Firstly, the affected pipe to be relined will be cleaned partially by one of our high-powered water jetters to prepare it for an internal video inspection.

Measuring The Pipeline: Sewer pipes will be inspected using a CCTV drain camera to determine if pipe relining is a suitable option. Video footage is also essential in identifying the cause of drainage issues.

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.

The Relining: The pipe liner of fiberglass or cloth tube is inserted into the pipe. It will be pulled and expanded with the use of an inflating device. Through this, the resin will attach to the damaged pipe.

Curing: 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.

Video Re-assessment: This step is done using the same video camera from the earlier step.

The Advantages of Pipe Relining Over Traditional Methods

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

It is a cost-effective service – 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 – This ‘no dig’ method means minimal disruption to your property and life. Generally, pipe relining is done in less than a day. Less complex jobs may be completed in just a few hours. This is a huge advantage over traditional methods that can take several days to carry out.

A boost to your sewer system – Another big bonus is that relined pipes perform better than ever. The flow of wastewater through relined pipes is super steady and smooth.

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.

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

I recently took up you offer of a free plumbing inspection, the service was great and we were very satisfied.

I particularly wish to commend the young lad Nick, who carried out the inspection and rectification work. He was very helpful with his advice and we were impressed with his friendly and courteous manner.

Great work Dr Drip, and congratulations on your terrific staff.
