Australian homes use different types of pipes for their sewage system that are efficient and readily available, but wear and tear and root intrusion can cause these pipes to break. As a result, the household could experience sewage problems. Have you noticed gurgling sounds, a foul odour and/or backflow of wastewater when you use your sewage system? These are the signs of pipe problems that you should look out for.
For a very long time, homeowners relied on traditional methods of fixing damaged or broken pipes which can be quite a messy and a hassle in many ways. To lessen the impact of repairing pipes, we offer a more practical and method of pipe repair to our clients, known as pipe relining.
What exactly is pipe relining?
The method of pipe relining basically means a pipe liner is fitted into a larger damaged pipe. This makes replacement efforts less of a headache to homeowners as there is no need to dig, excavate and replace the broken pipes. This method has been used to resolve sewage pipe problems for around thirty years now.
Pipe relining does not require excavating the old pipes as it uses a technology that requires minimal property disruption. This convenience also means a much lesser costs involves. This method is applicable to pipes of varying sizes – from as small as 40mm to as large 600mm in diameter.
What benefits can I look forward to?
Pipe relining is a method that resolves sewage concerns whilst involving less hassle for homeowners. Here are some of the benefits our clients have enjoyed after availing our services:
Cost-effectiveness. Pipe relining is less costly compared to other methods because of the minimal work needed to fix the pipes.
Convenience. This trenchless rehabilitation method offers convenience in repairing your drain pipes. There is no need to excavate, so the landscape is also left untouched.
Time efficiency. The amazing pipe relining method does not take anywhere near as long as other more traditional methods, so there is little waiting time before the pipes are working efficiently again.
Pipe protection. This method provides dual protection for pipes. It is highly resistant to plant and tree roots. The material is also so sturdy that it can last for up to 50 years.
Pipe relining and the cured-in-place piping (CIPP) – inversion method
Our pipe relining team utilises the most common type of trenchless rehabilitation method known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). Here is a rundown of the entire process:
Drain clearing. Sewer pipes are partially cleaned using a high powered water jetter to clear the pipes.
Video assessment. We will assess the extent of the damage to the sewer pipes using a CCTV drain camera. This will determine whether pipe relining is suitable for your problem.
Pipe cleaning. Thorough pipe cleaning will follow once you agree to proceed with pipe relining. Water jetters will be used again for this process. This will ensure proper bonding between the liner and the host pipe.
Installation of the lining material. A resin-saturated tube made of fibreglass cloth and polyester will be inserted into the pipe using an inverter. Air pressure will be used during the inversion process enabling the exterior coating of the liner to form the new interior of the pipe, while the felt tube is pressed against the wall of the host pipe.
Curing. The new liner will be left to cure for a couple of hours. For larger pipes, steam or hot water will be used to accelerate the curing process.
Quality control. To ensure that the lining material has bonded properly to the existing pipe, a video inspection will be conducted again.
