Why Pipe Relining in North Shore is often the Best Solution
If you have a problem with your pipes or drainage, pipe relining in North Shore is often the best, most efficient, and cheapest way to fix it. It’s a non-destructive method because it involves the relining of existing pipes rather than their removal and replacement. As such, it’s much less disruptive while being equally effective.
No matter how bad the situation may appear, with water backing up, flooding and unpleasant smells, it isn’t always necessary to replace your pipes. Pipe relining services in North Shore can, in effect, give old pipework a new lease of life that will last for very many years.
Benefits of Pipe Relining in North Shore
At Raks Quality Plumbing (best plumbers in Sydney), we’ll never replace pipes unless this is necessary. That’s because pipe relining in North Shore is superior for a number of reasons:
- There’s no excavation necessary because we don’t need to dig out your existing pipes. Consequently, since we can access the pipes internally from each end using specialist equipment, there’s no damage or disruption to the surrounding area and much less disruption for you.
- The process is much quicker because we can set up and use our equipment easily and no reinstatement is required at the end of the job.
- Since the equipment we use is relatively compact, we can use it in areas where access is restricted. This contrasts with conventional methods where it’s necessary to get excavation equipment on site.
- Pipe relining materials are extremely durable and will last for a very long time — commonly for up to fifty years or even more — so the process is not a short-term fix.
For these reasons, pipe relining has largely replaced the old method of replacing damaged pipes, which we only do if they’re totally beyond repair.
Leading Pipe Relining Services in North Shore: The Right Solution for Every Job
The common feature of pipe relining is that it’s always an option that involves no digging. In every case, once the pipe has been inspected internally and cleaned out, a liner is inserted, either along the full length of the pipe or for damaged areas only. This liner is inflated so it forms a complete seal against the pipe, no matter how many bends or contours it has, and then is hardened by a specific method:
- CIPP (cured in place pipe) is a liner soaked in special epoxy resin that sets hard inside the pipe by a chemical reaction
- UV (ultraviolet) uses UV light to cure the liner
- GRP ( Reinforced plastic) is commonly used for sewer and drain liners
- Heat curing using hot water or steam to minimise downtime.
We’ll always choose the method that’s best suited to a particular job. That can depend on whether the pipes carry potable water that needs to be kept safe for drinking, if they’re load-bearing pipes that run under roads or similar, or if they’re pressurised and may corrode due to contaminants.
Whatever solution we propose, will always be the most cost-effective, reliable, and least disruptive one possible under specific circumstances. Our relined pipes are stronger than the originals, won’t leak and can be certified, So don’t go to the expense and bother of replacing damaged pipes; re-line them instead.
