Woollahra Pipe Relining

A sewer blockage is a common and expensive problem affecting homeowners in Australia. Nearly all cases of sewer clogs are caused by root intrusion. Roots from plants and trees can head towards your sewer pipes in search of water sources causing significant damage.

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.

This trenchless method of pipe repair, put simply, involves the insertion of a resin-saturated fibreglass or cloth liner to effectively create a pipe within the affected pipe, making it more resilient than before. This revolutionary process can be used with a wide variety of sewer pipes, ranging in size from 40mm up to 600mm.

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.

How Pipe Relining is Carried Out

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 drainage problem will be identified and located using a CCTV drain camera.

CCTV Pipe Inspection: An HD video camera will then be inserted to check the damage and to see if pipe relining is the best solution for it.

Final Pipe Cleaning: After the video inspection, a really thorough clean of the host pipe will be performed so that it is ready to be relined.

The Relining: Once the resin is completely impregnated into the liner, it is loaded into an inverter. This machine is capable of inverting the liner inside out using air pressure. The calibration tube keeps the liner in place as it cures.

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.

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

The Great Benefits of Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is an innovative and exciting alternative to traditional pipe repair methods, offering those who utilise it many advantages. Here are some of the benefits you can expect to experience if you opt for pipe relining:

Cost-effectiveness – As there is no excavation involved in the process, it means you do not have to spend much for it.

Zero hassles – 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 – 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.

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.

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”
