Glebe 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.

A big bonus is that there is minimal need for pipe excavation. Since there is not much work involved, the total cost of the project will be much cheaper compared to traditional methods. Pipe relining is suitable for pipes with diameters as narrow as 40mm and up to 600mm in diameter.

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: The pipe is partly cleaned with a water jetter.

CCTV Pipe Inspection: Next, a sewer camera is inserted into the pipe so that it can be inspected. What the plumbers mostly want to know is where the damage is exactly, and how severe it is. Clients are also able to view the footage once it’s taken. You may find this helps in making a more informed decision about whether pipe relining is right for you.

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

Pipe Lining Insertion: The durable lining is then set up in the pipe interior using a calibration tube, and cured in place with steam.

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.

Final Video Inspection: To ensure the quality of the pipe relining job, a video inspection will be conducted again. Testing might be performed as well to ensure that the relined pipe is free from leaks.

The Other Advantages of This Service

Pipe Relining in Glebe

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:

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 – With pipe relining there’s no need to deal with your home looking like a bomb hit it for days on end. In fact, pipe relining is a clean process and one that typically takes a mere day or less to complete.

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 service protects the sewer line against root penetration. The lining is durable enough for this purpose.

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 is really worth considering. If you have questions, do not hesitate to call us on 1800 552 758 and we will be glad to help you.

Just for the record I wanted to say that I have been extremely happy with Dr.Drip Plumbers and the way they have carried out what has been at times a difficult and messy job, fixing a pipe under my unit and restoring everything back to normal. They have been very professional and personable throughout the whole process (and always cleaned up after being here). I would certainly recommend them for other body corporate plumbing jobs.

Regards, Jill
