Introduction to Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is a non-invasive method to fix underground pipes, eliminating the need for excavation and property relocation. Abbotsbury Plumbing employs advanced CIPP technology to enhance your pipe system internally.

The relining process involves inserting an epoxy resin-coated tube into compromised pipes and setting it with steam or hot water to form a durable new lining within the existing pipe.

Some notable advantages of opting for a pipe reline, where there’s no requirement for invasive excavation, include:

  • Minimal Disruption - Our non-invasive methods avoid digging up floors or landscapes, preserving your property’s aesthetics.
  • Reduced costs - Reap the benefits of up to 60% savings, as there’s no need to dig up your garden, preserving your landscaping beautifully.
  • Efficiency - With our same-day service, we quickly restore your drains, minimising disruptions.
  • Improved Flow Rates - The smooth interior lining enhances drainage flow.

The Pipe Relining Process Step-by-Step

The pipe relining process involves several key steps:

  1. Initial CCTV Drain Inspection - We conduct leak detection and assess pipe damage using specialised CCTV drain cameras to ensure no detail is missed for a prompt service. This diligent evaluation process can be used to repair effectively, enabling us to assess the overall condition and pinpoint any underlying issues.
  2. Cleaning the Pipeline - Our team expertly clears obstructions such as tree roots, grease buildup, and corrosion in the drain pipe to ensure a flawless bond of the new lining.
  3. Bypass Pumping Setup - Residents would no longer need to worry about the water flow, as we install temporary above-ground pumps and pipes to reroute the plumbing system, allowing continuous use of the water system and plumbing amenities during the relining work.
  4. Installation of Felt Sleeve - A felt sleeve saturated with epoxy resin is inserted into the pipe, using our hot treatment method, through an access point like a manhole.
  5. Curing the Resin Lining - utilising our hot water system or steam, we cure the epoxy resin, crafting a seamless, smooth pipe lining from within.
  6. Final CCTV Inspection - Our experts meticulously examine the newly relined pipes, ensuring the reliability of the lining and its pristine condition with CCTV, ensuring the reliability of the lining and its pristine condition.

Typically completed within 1-2 days, the drain pipe relining minimises disruption, prevents extensive property damage, and improves flow and structural integrity for lasting results.

Can You Stay in Your Home During Pipe Relining?

The good news: our trenchless pipe relining process typically lets residents remain comfortably in their homes with minimal disruption.

Because there’s no excavation or jackhammering involved, our process refurbishes the damaged underground pipes through minimal access points, a procedure I highly respect for its non-invasive nature. This approach prevents major demolition and safeguards your property from damage seen in traditional pipe replacement methods.

Our teams prevent odours during relining by setting up temporary containment areas, securely sealing after cleanup, and ensuring safe expulsion of epoxy fumes outside.

You may notice a faint resin smell at some point but rest assured our systems eliminate sewer gas/fume exposure risks and we ventilate the pipelines after cada relining stage.

On rare occasions, such as with a significant gas leak or when facilitating the creation of a new pipe within the old one, extensive damage spanning very long sections may require temporary vacation. For most jobs, including section pipe repair, we complete the work efficiently while you comfortably stay put.

When it comes to potential relocation, our project coordinators closely advise, 'Do I need to relocate partially or temporarily?' if such a situation arises. But there’s no cause for disruption worries as you can generally continue living comfortably during your pipe relining work.

The Benefits and Advantages of Pipe Relining

Pipe relining offers numerous advantages over traditional pipe replacement methods:

  • Cost Savings - Pipe relining costs a fraction of replacement, saving you thousands.
  • Minimal Property Disruption - Avoiding huge holes or jackhammering significantly reduces mess and damage.
  • Swift Completion - Service resumes in under 24 hours instead of the extended downtime with traditional repairs.
  • Improved Flow - Smooth interior lining increases water drainage flow rates.
  • Longer Lasting - Structurally reinforced and resistant to corrosion/leaks.
  • Eco-friendly - Significantly reduces waste compared to traditional pipe replacement.

The consistent use of epoxy lining allows for pipe restoration from the interior through small entry points, providing long-term protection and enhanced home integrity. By inserting a resin-coated felt tube then curing with hot water to form a jointless lining, we can perform drain relining with minimal invasiveness.

This method is ideal for local residents, offering thorough pipe repairs without the significant hassle, cost, and disruption of traditional methods. Pipe relining also avoids repeat repairs as the epoxy lining is designed to last 50+ years.

Pipe Relining vs Traditional Pipe Replacement

If you’re considering restoring your underground pipes, your primary choices are cost-effective pipe relining or full pipe replacement. Of these, which one would I highly recommend as the preferred option for Abbotsbury homeowners?

The old ways of extensive digging up your yard for pipe replacement are highly invasive, typically requiring substantial excavation to reach and extract the old pipes.

This requires jackhammering floors/walls, destroying landscaping, and significant property damage. Huge pits need to be dug with dump trucks removing tonnes of waste. Given these conventional methods, one endures weeks of upheaval, and your broken pipes undergo undue additional strain, leading to hefty expenses – all effortlessly avoidable without any of the aforementioned commotion.

Our trenchless approach to drain repair restores your pipe’s integrity from within, providing solutions without need for digging or demolition. How do I know we restore Sydney water drain pipes effectively? It’s simple: from the inside through small access points.

A structural epoxy lining is inserted into sewer pipes then hardened to form a smooth, jointless barrier. Your pipes can be reinforced to last 50+ years without leaks, holes, or corrosion.

You also save thousands compared to replacement. We even allow you to remain on the property rather than having to vacate from all the mess and noise.

If you’re in Abbotsbury and require pipe repairs, consider pipe relining for a solution that’s quicker, more cost-effective, and durable, all while circumventing the collateral damage typical of conventional replacements.

What to Expect During and After Pipe Relining

During the pipe relining process, which takes 1-2 days, you might hear some minor noise from equipment like cleaning devices or water pumps. It’s common to encounter some resin odour, which can also be deftly managed as we ensure precautions are in place to minimise and safely direct the scent away.

It’s normal to hear the sound of rushing water as we hydrostatically test the pipes after relining to check integrity. There may also be a bit of comings and goings with our very professional crews accessing the pipe chambers.

Our project managers commit to delivering top-notch service, consistently communicating progress to ensure your satisfaction. With courteous and considerate conduct, our team strives to minimise disturbance and, if necessary, arranges temporary housing for extensive projects.

Upon completion, you’ll enjoy improved water flow and a leak-free system, reflective of our team’s high standards. The new epoxy lining yields smooth, durable pipes resistant to wear and intended to last over 50 years, much to the satisfaction of our clients.

With an extensive year guarantee on all work conducted, we provide post-relining CCTV examinations to ensure the highest quality standards are met. Expect improved drainage, enhanced water pressure and reliable, long-lasting pipes without the huge costs and disruption of conventional replacement.

How Much Does Pipe Relining Cost?

When I consider pipe relining costs, there are a few factors I examine to provide an accurate quote for your project:

  • Type of Pipe – Storm water, sewer, or other pipe types can influence price.
  • Pipe Size & Length – Longer pipe sections or large diameter pipes cost more to reline.
  • Access Difficulty – Ease of accessing pipes impacts equipment needs.
  • Location Factors – Properties in areas like the pipe relining northern beaches may have differing service costs.

As an approximation, pipe relining costs range between $80 to $150 per metre. For a standard job covering 60 metres, you can expect costs between $4,800 and $9,000. We finalise pricing after evaluating your specific situation onsite in Abbotsbury.

Although an investment, the value of pipe relining is clear as it often costs less than half of traditional pipe replacement, effectively resolving blocked drains with a solution that offers over 50 years of durability, reducing the need for constant upkeep.

How to Prevent Odors and Disruption During Pipe Relining

To mitigate undesirable odours and reduce disruptions throughout the pipe relining process:

  1. Seal off sink and tub drains - Place stoppers and plugs in all drains not being worked on to contain odours.
  2. Prime traps beforehand - Pour water down infrequently used drains to fill dry traps and block smells.
  3. Open windows - Ensure adequate ventilation throughout the home during the 1-2 days.
  4. Avoid tap usage - Prevent water backing up into open pipes being relined.
  5. Communicate with Technicians - Inform the team to ensure access points are effectively sealed.
  6. Use exhaust fans - Kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans remove any fumes.
  7. Leave during process - Vacate temporarily if sensitive to odours.

While some resin odours may be perceptible during relining, be assured our experienced crews implement stringent safety measures to prevent health hazards. Please inform us if there are individuals with existing respiratory conditions on the premises.

We seal access points thoroughly after each stage and vent emissions outside. Should any undesirable smells persist after relining, our team is at the ready to inspect and remedy the issue, confident you will engage them again for their meticulous and responsive service.
