Let us help you understand the importance of choosing a professional for your home’s pipe relining services.
Known as a “no-dig” solution, Pipe Relining is considerably less impactful than any other pipe repair option. It’s quiet, quick and clean, which is why it’s becoming the go-to service for our eastern suburbs clients who are looking for a long term solution that won’t disrupt the home or garden.
Pipe relining aims at repairing your pipes by curing them directly from the inside with the help of a special resin.
The new pipe is achieved by a two-part epoxy resin being pulled through and “set” within the existing pipe. The resin can cure with time to develop another strong or even stronger pipe than the original.
In the method of pipe relining, the resin serves to be the key to cure a pipe. A felt tube that is saturated with the resin is used in the process. The pipe is usually made out of a specialised material, including fibreglass or polyester. The pipe, along with the resin, is then used to impregnate for pipe curing. Finally, the pipe gets inserted into the damaged pipe.
The resin hardens, is set and forms another new pipe within the broken or damaged pipe.
The insertion occurs at the access point, which serves to be upstream. Insertion from the downstream access point might be possible. However, as the process is risky, it is mostly avoided.
The process of pipe relining is regarded as the trench-less mechanism. This is because minimal to no digging is involved in the given trench-less process. This would make the relining process a highly cost-effective method. It also makes the process a highly less intensive one in comparison to conventional ‘digging and replacing’ methods of pipe repairs.
It is important that you regularly maintain, clean and care for the plumbing system of your home. Plumbing failures can turn out disastrous and overwhelming for any homeowner PLUS can be incredibly pricey.
With anything in plumbing the aim of the game is to act fast. If you feel the pipe’s are in need of repair of you’re seeing the warning signs that your pipe system is broken and in need of a thorough look, do not delay.
#1 Old Age
Think about the age of your home - was it built 20+ years ago? In that time do you know whether the sewer line has been replaced? Sewer lines and pipes tend to become more fragile over time and fail more frequently. Even if you’ve owned your home for 5 years or so, how often have the pipes been inspected? Book in an inspection now.
#2 Consistent blockages
If your home is facing consistent blocked drains and toilets, it could be a sign of a failing sewer line. Remember this: everything that goes down any drain in your property will end up in your mainline (otherwise known as your sewer line).
#3 Strange sounds and smells
Bubbling, gurgling and burping sounds coming from the toilet and pipes is a sign of a clog in your sewer line. Similarly, if you start to smell something foul or composting - it could indicate a clog and needs to be investigated.
#4 Landscape changes
Have you noticed a change in your garden soil, or lawn? Can you see a specific spot that is damp, sodden and muddy? Or unusually fertile and green? This could be a crack in your sewer line feeding excess water to that area and needs an expert eye to check it out.
#5 Water fixture clogs
If you’ve noticed water backing up in the sinks, drains, showers and toilets (or maybe it’s happening in one specific area) and taking a long time to drain? This could be a sign of a mainline clog.
#6 Unusually high water bills
An unusually high water bill could indicate a crack in the sewer line and your system working overtime to pump more water through it.
#7 Low Water Pressure
This means water is being pushed harder through pipes that are probably blocked. It’s time to investigate.
#8 Insect Infestation
An insect infestation may also be a symptom of a broken sewer line. Small insects such as cockroaches and drain flies have an easy time getting through cracks in your sewer line.
#9 Cracks in foundation
If the main line running under your foundation slab develops a crack or leak that goes untreated for a prolonged period of time, a void may develop under the foundation or in the yard. This may lead to foundation problems such as cracks in your foundation!
#10 Closely situated trees
If you have a big, leafy tree right up against your home or very close in your backyard, chances are that big tree is trying with all its might to get into your pipes and feed off the nutrient-rich water and waste flowing from your home. Even a hairline crack can see a powerful tree root infiltration that could wreak havoc on your sewer line in no time at all. The tree roots create massive blockages and you’ll soon know about it.
In case of a damaged or broken pipe or main sewer line in your property, you can consider reaching out to professional plumbers to ensure pipe relining services.
One of the primary reasons is that pipe relining services usually involves complex processes in comparison to conventional ones. The plumber is expected to assess the existing condition of the piping or plumbing system in your household. On the basis of the same, he or she would commence the pipe relining procedures.
Another reason to hire professional pipe relining services is that your piping system will require the assistance of professionals for improved results. It is a lucrative process to assign the plumbing task to an expert who is aware of the in-depth techniques. At the same time, the professional is also adept at using the right tools and equipment for carrying out pipe relining effectively.
You cannot execute such a complicated task of pipe relining on your own. This is because it requires ample skills, knowledge, and expertise. You also need to be aware of using the right plumbing tools for the right purpose as well as the machinery, resins and curing process.
Professionals in the field of pipe relining services have access to state-of-the-art technology to ensure the best-ever diagnosis of the problem at hand. Most of the pipe relining experts are known to make use of the technology of CCTV surveillance to ensure inspection of the problem. The high-definition cameras for drain inspection are capable of identifying problems inside the drains without the having the need of digging up the entire landscape. Accurate diagnosis results in accurate problem resolution.
