A Comprehensive Guide on Pipe Relining

  • If your home or business is suffering from a damaged drain or sewer pipe, you might be wondering as to the best method to whip them back to shape. A malfunctioning drain or sewer can wreak havoc to your property, not to mention disrupt routines of daily life. In the event that you are suffering from a clogged drain or more serious issues such as damaged sewer pipes, an increasingly popular repair approach is pipe relining. Pipe relining in Sydney has become the go-to repair method for many professional plumbing companies. In this guide, we will give you a comprehensive look on the most common pipe relining technique- cured-in-place relining. 

What is pipe relining?

  • Pipe relining is a repair technique characterised by its minimally invasive and trenchless key features.  This pipe rehabilitation system effectively replaces the more traditional pipe replacement technique. One of the main selling points of pipe relining is that the process does not involve any excavation or digging. 
  •  
  • Drain and sewer relining carries a host of benefits:
  •  

        The trenchless process translates to minimal excavation, resulting in time and money savings. 

        It does not disturb the surrounding landscape, concrete floors, driveways, bathrooms, and gardens. 

        Quicker turnaround as opposed to traditional pipe replacement that can take weeks to finish. 

        Innovative drain relining solution works well in repairing pipe bends and hard-to-reach pipe work. 

        Cost-effective pipe repair due to fewer manpower and tools needed during pipe relining procedure. 

        Pipe relining repairs all types of lines, including stormwater drains, septic pipes, sewer lines, and chemical pipes. 

        The repaired pipelines are highly durable and resilient.

        Less mess means additional money savings and does not negatively impact the environment and public health.

        Less wasteful as old pipes stay in place. 

        Pipe relining materials works on all types of pipes, including PVC, copper, cast iron, and many more. 

  • Lastly, pipe relining delivers the same results as pipe replacement. Put simply, pipe replacement is a fat superior repair solution for broken drain and sewer lines in homes and businesses. Plumbing specialists more commonly recommend pipe relining due to the speed at which they can complete projects. A professional company with extensive pipe relining experience can accomplish one project in as little as a few hours or a few days. This means that they can allocate their workforce to take on more projects resulting in more profits for their business. 

Cured-in-Place Pipe Relining in Sydney

  •  
  • Cured-in-place (CIPP) involves the creation of a new drain pipe within your old, damaged pipe. In this process, a felt tube saturated with epoxy resin is placed inside the existing pipe. Once proper placement is achieved, the tube is then inflated to conform to the shape of the existing pipe. The epoxy is cured for a few hours, allowing it to harden and create a watertight seal. 
  •  
  • Depending on your drain or sewer design, CIPP lining can be successfully implemented without any excavation or digging. For sewer lines that are four inches in diameter or if you have a sewer vent without sharp turns or bends, the process will be performed without excavation. On the other hand, if the vent or sewer line has insufficient access for proper liner insertion, minimal digging will be performed to create an access hole for efficient liner entry. Pipe relining contractors will commonly create an access hole outside of the property to minimise disruption at your home or place of business. 
  •  
  • Before any relining is implemented, drain and sewer lines will be cleaned out via hydro jetting. CIPP is ideal for small to medium damages, cracks, root intrusions, and leaks. It is not recommended for drains that have lost their shape or suffer from misalignments.

Frequently Asked Questions about Drain and Sewer Relining

  •  

        Does pipe lining replace old, damaged pipes?

  • Technically, pipe relining does not replace your existing pipe. In essence, relining rehabilitates sewer and drain lines. Despite this, trenchless pipe repair is highly effective and durable. This will eliminate your need to replace your pipes despite increased water flow or utilisation.
  •  

        How long does epoxy lining last?

  • The epoxy resin is designed to last over 50 years. Pipe relining is a cheap and easy fix to small to medium-sized damages on drains and sewer lines.
  •  

        What happens if the pipe is cracked or missing large parts at the bottom?

  • Depending on the extent of material loss, the pipe relining technique can still remedy the problem. A skilled plumber will design a strategy on how pipelines with material loss can be lined successfully.
  •  

        Does pipe relining reduce total pipe diameter?

  • Due to the addition of epoxy resin, a drain or sewer pipe loses ¼ of an inch. This minimal reduction does not restrict or limit the efficiency of your pipelines in carrying sewage away from your house or commercial property.
