Hills District 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.

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.

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 Cleaning: The first step to the pipe relining process is partially cleaning the pipes using a high pressure water jetter.

Video Inspection: Sewer pipes will be inspected using a CCTV drain camera to determine if pipe relining is a suitable option. Video footage is also essential in identifying the cause of drainage issues.

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: This will serve as the new interior of the damaged sewer pipe. To set it up, the calibration tube is inflated, and steam then introduced to cure it in place.

Drying Stage: Once the liner is precisely in place, it will be left to cure for usually around 2 hours. If the host pipe is large, your plumber may decide to utilise steam to help the liner dry quickly.

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

The Benefits You Can Expect

Pipe Relining in Hills District

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

It is a cost-effective method – As there is no excavation involved in the process, it means you do not have to spend much for it.

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 better performing 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.

A long-lasting sewer system – Once your sewer line has been relined, we guarantee it to work effectively for you for up to 50 years.

Just for the record I wanted to say that I have been extremely happy with Dr.Drip Plumbers and the way they have carried out what has been at times a difficult and messy job, fixing a pipe under my unit and restoring everything back to normal. They have been very professional and personable throughout the whole process (and always cleaned up after being here). I would certainly recommend them for other body corporate plumbing jobs.
