Pipe relining refers to the use of materials such as polyester, epoxy and resin to reinforce broken pipes and repair damage. This process can make the broken pipe much stronger and prevent further damage and breakage over time. At Sydney Blocked Drains, our plumbers are experts at the latest pipe relining techniques, and use superior technology and procedures to mend broken pipes quickly, safely and cost efficiently. We treat your house like our home – and will always ensure that the job is completed to the highest possible standard.
Sydney home owners seek out and trust pipe relining services to make sure that both their indoor and outdoor pipes do not decay easily and can withstand the test of time. Several engineering studies have found that pipe relining can extend the life of average PVC pipes considerably; even up to 50 years or more. So how does the pipe relining process work? Allow our expert team of plumbers at Sydney Blocked Drains to take you through and give you a little insight into the pipe relining process:
Our team will conduct a thorough investigation of the area
Firstly, our plumbers will conduct a thorough assessment of the broken or damaged pipes, as well as the surrounding area. Prior to going ahead with the job, our team will make sure that it is safe to go ahead without causing further damage to the pipe. Using cameras small enough to fit in and around the tight pipe angles, we will locate the site of the issue exactly so we know exactly how to proceed.
Removal of the pipe obstruction/s
After locating the site of the issue using our miniature cameras, our team will then utilise a variety of tools to safely and quickly remove any blockages in the pipes and pave the way for the application of the relining resin.
Preparation for lining the pipes
After removing any blockages, the Sydney Blocked Drains team will then measure and prepare the pipes and materials used for lining.
Applying and cooling the lining coat
Our plumbers will then proceed with applying the resin mixture to all of the interior area of the pipe. This resin will cool and set on its own, however the process is usually quickened by using cool water to set the resin in a shorter amount of time.
Finally, our team will scrape off any excess lining and make sure the finish is perfect.
And voilà! The pipe is repaired and ready to withstand the test of time, stronger and more durable than ever before.
