It’s a nightmare to find one of your utility pipes cracked from age, tree roots or blocked drains. With the pipeline buried underground, it might be a while before you know what has happened.
Changing the pipes is the most common solution for cracked, broken or leaking pipe replacement. But that requires significant digging in your backyard, which takes quite a bit of time to get back to its old state. Not to mention the expense you have to shell out for the repairs.
An option that many people are still unaware of to repair damaged pipes is pipe relining. And, it works just as well as installing new units.
At Gold Coast Plumbing Company, our relined pipes are stronger than brand new pipes. We can fix the problem with only a pinhole opening. It’s a less intrusive method. And our team can complete the task in half the time compared to standard pipe relining. It will also only cost you a fraction of the regular expense.
This “trenchless pipe repair” is the most high-tech solution to your plumbing problems. Our pipe relining solutions will save your well-manicured lawns. With no excavation required — no need to mess your landscaped garden like you would if you’re replacing your pipes in the conventional ways. We are your trusted Gold Coast plumbing specialist for pipe relining with friendly service.
Pipe relining is repairing cracked or broken pipes from the inside without digging. Through the process known as Cured-In-Place Pipelining (CIPP), a new, tough pipe is added within the old damaged one. We use an epoxy-based resin that is structurally stronger than the original pipe to seal the cracks and have a better flow. This stops the leaks and prevents further damages. And the best part of this procedure is that there’s no need to dig up the yard or knock down walls.
This method increases the lifespan of the old pipe. It will protect against problems like root intrusion, cracking, or separation. Pipe relining works well for broken and cracked pipes with minimum disturbance, but you do need to consult an expert to confirm its viability for your situation.
Now that you are aware of the process of pipe relining, let’s have an in-depth look at various steps of making a pipe as good as new. Knowing these would help you understand how our experienced drain plumber will go about repairing your pipeline.
The work of pipe relining can’t begin without a thorough inspection. Our pipe relining specialist will visit your home to determine the severity of the damage present in the pipe or sewer drains. This is usually done with the help of a CCTV drain inspection or forced electron leak location (FELL) device.
Inspecting the existing pipe will also let our plumbers know the exact location of drain blockage or pipe problems in the system that will have to be unclogged. When a pipeline is beyond repair or is too old, the relining process may not work suitably.
2. Clearing Of Blockages
Before the resin is applied to a pipe, we must clear any blockages or obstructions. We will first remove any solid or large blockages and then use a water jet with strong pressure to clear the path. After the cleaning is over, the camera is reintroduced into the pipe to make sure the path is clear to begin relining.
Once there are no obstructions, our plumbers will take measurements of the pipe to use the correct sized liner and bladder.
3. Installing The New Lining
Once the whole course of the pipe has been determined, our plumbers would prepare a felt liner along with an uninflated bladder. The liner is prepared to include the nooks and bends present in the pipe. It’s then soaked with resin and introduced into the pipe from an upstream point, so there’s no need for any digging.
A drain camera is used in this stem to keep an eye on the progress and find the correct spot. When the liner reaches the correct spot, the bladder is inflated to stick to the pipe’s walls to form a stronger layer.
There’s a curing time associated with pipe relining as with any resin component. Our plumbers may let the resin cure on its own or take the help of hot water or UV radiation to quicken the process.
They will finish the process by cutting holes for the junctions and inspecting pits inside the pipe. But, this step won’t be necessary when our plumbers prepare the liner beforehand. During the inspection, they will assess the condition of your pipe to determine the best technique for relining them.
4. Final Check
Now that the pipe relining process is over, it’s time for a final inspection of the new pipe. Our plumber will introduce a camera into the pipe to check if the installation was successful. They would make sure all the pathways and bends are clear, and your water flows freely without any leaks.
There’s little to no digging involved in the procedure. A liner is introduced from an upstream point for the relining, so we wouldn’t need to wreak havoc on your property. This is quite helpful as intrusive procedures often leave a mess, and you’ll need to wait months for everything to go back to its original state.
Along with being highly intrusive, changing pipes also requires days to get over. But, pipe relining is much faster. And in some cases, our plumbers would be done in only a few hours, depending on the extent of your pipe and the level of damages.
Pipe relining makes your pipes more durable and long-lasting. The new layer of resin acts as the very pipe and even prevents cracks in the original one. Epoxy resin is also known for combating root intrusions, a common reason for cracked underground pipes.
Additionally, relined pipes help to mend any weak spots in the original pipe. And, as the pipes are cleared before the procedure, the flow rate increases drastically. Some resin liners also come with the capability of breaking down any future obstructions.
