Willoughby Pipe Relining

Despite the benefits of having trees around, they can cause concerns, especially for the home’s sewer system. The roots can grow deep and break or cause cracks to sewage pipes beneath. When pipes are broken or damaged, seeking immediate action is important. If left untreated, the sewage problem will undoubtedly worsen.

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.

Fortunately, there is a relatively new and far more practical pipe repair option available today – ‘pipe relining’. Using this method, there is no need for messy excavations. Pipe relining can be done within a day and performed on any type of sewer pipe ranging in length from 40mm to 600mm.

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 Pipe Cleaning: The blocked earthenware pipe is partly cleaned with a jet of water to get it ready for video inspection.

Video Investigation: 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 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.

Installing The Liner: The pipe liner will be inserted and expanded with the use of an inflating device so that the fibreglass or cloth attaches securely to the old damaged pipe.

Inflating The Pipe Liner: The pipe liner is expanded using an inflatable device. Steam will also be used to aid the curing process.

Quality Inspection: When the resin has set, another video inspection is done for quality control.

The Other Advantages of This Service

Pipe Relining in Willoughby

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:

Cost-effectiveness – 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 – 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.

Furthermore, relined pipes are highly resistant to potential environmental threats such as the invasion of thirsty tree roots.

Long-lasting – 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 we are experts at. Give us a call on 1800 552 758 and we will be glad to answer your questions.

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”
