Plumber Gordon Pipe Relining

PipeReligning trimmedYou’ve just pulled the plug out of your kitchen sink after doing the dinner dishes, only to discover that the water isn’t draining. It’s most likely you’ve grabbed a household plunger and plunged away at the drain hole, hoping to see the water disappear down it rapidly as per normal. When the water stays put or drains very slowly, you know you have a serious plumbing issue on your hands. Sound familiar? Other signs that your sewer line may be blocked or damaged include hearing gurgling or bubbling sounds from sinks and basins, toilet water not flushing as it should, awful smells coming from pipes in the bathroom, laundry and kitchen areas of your home, and water overflowing from your sewer gully out in the garden.

If you’ve experienced any of the above, it is vital that you call a plumber immediately to assess your pipes. What is not vital though, is to fall into a state of panic. It’s understandable that upon realising that your sewer system isn’t functioning properly that you may worry about the costs and mess associated with excavations and pipe replacement. However, there is now an impressive alternative to such pipe rehabilitation methods that does not require any digging at all. ‘Pipe relining’ is an innovative method that removes the need for pipe replacement, thus the need for destroying your property.

Pipe relining – the basics

Rather than replacing pipes, pipe relining involves lining the affected pipe with a fibreglass tube that has been soaked in an epoxy resin. This effectively creates a new, stronger pipe within the host pipe without the mess and fuss associated with pipe replacement. It is suitable for pipes made from PVC, cast iron, ceramic and a wide range of other materials, and for pipes measuring 40mm to 600mm.

The process of pipe relining explained

To give you a more extensive understanding of how pipe relining is performed, here are the steps that our pipe relining experts follow during the pipe relining process:

  • Quick clean of the host pipe. The affected pipe will be given a partial clean with the aid of one of our high-powered water jetters to prepare it for an internal video examination.
  • CCTV inspection. Next, a sewer camera will be inserted into the affected pipe so the plumbers can see exactly where the damage is located, as well as the severity of it. If desired, the client can also view this footage to gain a better understanding of the plumbing issue at hand, and whether they feel pipe relining is the best repair option.
  • Thorough clean. Following the video inspection, a thorough clean of the pipe to be relined will be performed. It’s important that the pipe’s wall is clean before the lining is adhered to it.
  • Lining installation. After the thorough clean, the lining will be placed inside the pipe and inflated so that it fits the diameter of the pipe precisely, with the help of an air compressor.
  • Lining is left to dry. Once the lining is precisely in place within the host pipe, it is left to cure for a couple of hours or so. Steam may be added to larger pipes to accelerate the drying time.
  • Quality control inspection. Once the lining has dried, another video inspection will be carried out to make absolutely sure that the relining has been performed successfully.

Pipe relining and its advantages

    There are so many advantages that pipe relining has over traditional methods of pipe repair requiring pipe replacement. Here are some of them:

  • It’s a fast and clean process. Pipe relining is completed in less than a day. In some cases, it may take only a few hours. It being a ‘no dig’ method of pipe rehabilitation also means that it is a clean process that will not cause destruction to your much loved landscaping.
  • It’s affordable. Pipe relining does not require excavation at your property, nor a large team of plumbers and heavy machinery. As a result, pipe relining is a far more cost-effective method of pipe rehabilitation than traditional methods.
  • A superior sewer system. Once relined, your sewer pipes will work more efficiently than ever with a much smoother flow of wastewater. What’s more, they will become more resistant to potential threats such as the invasion of tree roots, which is very reassuring.
  • Lifetime guarantee. We guarantee your relined pipes to perform effectively for up to 50 years.

With all these benefits and more, it’s absolutely no wonder that more and more Aussies are giving pipe relining a go.
