Looking for a pipe relining plumber trusted in Hornsby, and around Sydney? Look no further! We are licensed, friendly, and we have decades of experience in pipe relining.

Dig Free Pipe Relining Defined

In the past replacing faulty pipes often meant ripping up paving slabs, flowers or a lawn. Then either manually or with excavation tools, a trench the length of the pipe had to be cut to expose the pipe. This long trench allowed the plumbing team access to physically remove the damaged pipe. After which it would be replaced with a brand new piece of pipework. Huge mounds of excess earth and debris had to be lifted and shifted which was arduous work. But here at Andrew Vanny Plumbing we have the most up to date plumbing technologies available for this task. Depending upon suitability, our expert plumbing technicians can use drain relining equipment as a no dig solution for replacement. Put simply, a specifically designed and pre-measured ‘bladder’ is placed within a layer of super-durable epoxy resin type material. This flexible length is then overlaid with a thick plasticised substance and is inserted at the property end of the pipe. A metal pulley is then inserted at the mains end, which travels and hooks on to the new piping, pulling it through. It is then treated, tested and fixed in place securely and permanently.

The Benefits of Pipe Relining

Firstly, its important to speak to one of Andrew Vanny Plumbing skilled technicians to see if your faulty pipework is suitable for trench-less technologies.  If the drain line has been damaged, suffered too much corrosion, or a calamity making it irreparable, no dig solutions will not be an option, for example collapsed terracotta pipework. However, There are numerous benefits to pipe relining practices, if it is an option. Dig free technology eliminates the need for underground excavation entirely. This cuts out the arduous and unsanitary practice of literally digging up and relaying lawns, paved areas, concreted drives and so on. It also means less time spent relaying and refitting these same areas to cosmetically ‘make good’. There are less health and safety issues too, as no dirty and contaminated pipework, contents or surrounding soil are disturbed. By its nature it is less time consuming, no need for disturbing the land between the property and the mains. It is less demanding of labour and takes a shorter amount of time to put in place, fix and test. In fact, its been estimated to cost as little as half of what traditional pipework replacement would cost, its better for the environment and can be depended upon for decades to come.

Signs Pipe Relining is Required

There are a number of things to watch out for which may indicate you could require pipe relining. Visually, you may notice water backing up and not draining promptly. The bath may take an age to empty when unplugged. Or maybe sludge is rising through the plughole. You might notice gurgling or belching noises coming from the plumbing, or repeated clogging in the toilet. Similarly, rust and corrosion might alert you to the need for new piping. There may be a lower quality of water, with lower pressure, so a few drips from the taps, rather than a fast flow of water. Do you know if the original piping has been updated? or could it have suffered corrosion or have developed holes. If you notice an unpleasant ‘foul’ odour, this often indicates a problem with plumbing, drainage and pipes. Outside, there may have been building work, ground-works, or shrubbery roots which have impacted the pipes. Finally, depending upon the severity of the leak, some people have also noticed an area of ground which seems  waterlogged and sodden, or has adverse camber, which is reliable evidence of pipework becoming compromised. Don’t delay, call Andrew Vanny Plumbing today, to discuss your concerns with one of our experts.

Are There Alternatives to Pipe Relining?

For sizeable and commercial projects pipe ramming or bursting are options. Suitable too ‘Slip lining’ uses a narrower diameter of pipe fitted into the original piece of pipe. ‘Fold and form’ liner is placed into the original pipe with heat conforming a new shape to the old pipe. While ‘Spiral wound’ liner winds the new pipe to the contours of the faulty pipe. Used mainly in homes and small businesses however,  CIPP liner (cured in place pipe) employs a heated resin to fix the degenerate part of the piping. There are three CIPP options available. PIP ‘Pull in place’ where the epoxy sodden liner is pulled to obscure the faulty pipe, solidifying new length in the damaged pipe. Inversion, which blasts the soaked liner into the pipe. And Spray lining which coats the pipe. Consideration of funds, condition of pipe, whether sewerage or potable water is carried, pipe placement and whether structural or not, will all dictate which is best suited. In some circumstances, the only option is the traditional trench dug method. If the pipe is entirely broken, worn away or made of certain materials. Although this usually takes longer and is more labour intensive, the trusted professionals at Andrew Vanny Plumbing are experienced at completing these pipe replacements promptly and considerately.
