Drummoyne 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.

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.

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 Sewage Pipe Cleaning: 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.

Video 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.

Preparing The Liner: The pipe will be cleaned once again using the high pressure water jetter this time to remove all the obstructions and prepare it for the pipe liner installation.

Setting Up The Lining: Inserting the liner or fibreglass or cloth tube is the next step. It can be dragged for up to 50 meters.

Drying Stage: Ambient air is only needed to cure the liner in pipes with smaller diametres. For pipes with larger diametres, steam or hot water will be used to accelerate the curing process.

Quality Inspection: The video camera will then be used again to see if the lining has been correctly set up.

The Benefits You Can Expect

Pipe Relining in Drummoyne

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

Cost-effectiveness – Because there is no need to replace pipes, therefore no need for digging, heavy machinery and days of labour, pipe relining costs a lot less than traditional methods of pipe rehabilitation.

Fast and efficient – 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 write to comment on your two employees, David and Matt, who did a great job at our place. Particularly David, who had been quick and helpful and patient with the numerous questions which had been asked and painstakingly showing us what had caused those problems relating to the repair work and the condition of the bathroom. The reason why we chose Dr.Drip to do the repair work is because of its friendly and professional service which we had encountered last year when Dr.Drip sent out another employee.Once again, thank you Dr.Drip for employing such valued staff to do a job and the really make or day. I think they deserve a “pat on the back”
