St Ives 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.

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: The sewer line must be cleaned from any debris using a high-pressure water jetting machine. Tree roots can be removed during this stage.

Video Inspection: Next, a video inspection will be conducted to assess the pipe damage. You will be allowed to view the video footage to identify the cause of pipe damage or sewer clogs.

Complete Pipe Cleaning: A thermosetting resin is prepared based on the acquired measurements. Then, the resin is impregnated into the liner by rolling it out for several times.

The Relining: Once thoroughly cleaned, your plumber will insert the resin-soaked liner into the host pipe, then using an air compressor, will inflate the liner to fit to the diameter of the host pipe neatly.

Curing The Liner: 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.

Video Re-assessment: 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 Great Benefits of Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining in St Ives

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

Cost-effectiveness – We do not use a lot of resources for the task, and so we do not charge you much for it.

Fast and efficient – This process is quicker so it is expected that the sewage system will function efficiently again in a matter of just a few hours.

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.

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

A long-lasting sewer system – We are so confident that your relined pipes will perform effectively for you for many years to come that we offer a 50 year guarantee.

Stewart came today with the plan of trying to pull apart my hand basin to look for a lost ring. He spotted the obvious point that a ring would not have fitted down the plug. Then he rummaged through my rubbish bin and found the ring. I was absolutely delighted. I’d like to convey my appreciation. He went above and beyond the call of duty and I’m one very happy customer!
