St George 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.

Three decades ago, the best way to address sewage pipe problems was through traditional methods. The problem with these methods was the inconvenience of excavation which disrupts properties, with the plumbing job taking days to finish. The good news however, is that newer technologies like pipe relining have been introduced.

Pipe relining is a relatively new method of repairing pipes performed by fitting a liner to the existing and broken pipes. Through this process, homeowners can avoid the hassles of excavating the old pipes. Due to the convenience it brings, many Australian homeowners are starting to favour pipe relining over other sewage repair options.

The old broken pipes can be repaired with little to no excavation at all. Since there is not much work involved, the total cost of the project will be considerably cheaper than traditional methods. Pipe relining is ideal for pipes with diameters as narrow as 40 mm to as long as 600 mm and can also run for 40-50 metres of pipe.

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 pipe is partly cleaned with a water jetter.

Measuring The Pipeline: 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.

Thorough Pipe Cleaning: A thermosetting resin is prepared based on the acquired measurements. Then, the resin is impregnated into the liner by rolling it out for several times.

Installing The Liner: 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 Process: The resin will be allowed to cure. Steam is also used to facilitate the curing process.

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

The Advantages of Pipe Relining Over Traditional Methods

Pipe relining is still new and some people may be skeptical of this option. Australian property owners who have tried it would surely attest to the benefits that they enjoyed, which include the following:

Highly cost-effective – Pipe relining cuts on cost because it does not involve the long and gruelling process of digging, excavating and replacing the pipes. It is also worth noting that there is less damage to the landscape and therefore another saving.

It’s done quickly and with minimal fuss – 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.
