December 29, 2022by Alex

When it comes to fixing broken pipes in your property, you want to ensure that the job is done correctly to avoid future issues. Pipe relining is a popular and effective method of repairing broken pipes without excavation. However, choosing the right pipe relining expert in Sydney can be a daunting task. In this article, we’ll discuss some factors to consider when choosing a pipe relining expert.

1. Experience

When choosing a pipe relining expert, it’s essential to consider their level of experience. Look for a Sydney company with years of experience in the industry and a track record of successful pipe relining jobs. Experienced experts can identify issues that inexperienced experts may miss, leading to future problems.

2. Licenses and Certifications

Ensure that the pipe relining expert you choose is licensed and certified to perform the job. Licenses and certifications provide assurance that the expert has undergone the necessary training and has met the required standards.

3. Quality of Materials

Choose a pipe relining expert who uses high-quality materials for the job. High-quality materials can withstand wear and tear, resulting in a longer lifespan for your pipes. Be wary of experts who use cheaper, inferior materials to save on costs.

4. Warranty

A reputable pipe relining expert will offer a warranty for their work. A warranty provides assurance that the expert is confident in their work and is willing to fix any issues that may arise during the warranty period.

5. Reviews and Testimonials

Read reviews and testimonials from previous customers to gauge the quality of the expert’s work. Positive reviews and testimonials are an indication of good service and quality work.

6. Cost

While cost shouldn’t be the sole factor in choosing a pipe relining expert, it’s important to consider. Look for an expert who offers a fair and transparent pipe relining cost estimate, with no hidden fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Pipe Relining?

Pipe relining is a trenchless pipe repair method that uses a resin lining to fix pipes. The existing pipe is cleaned and inspected, then lined with a resin material that’s cured to form a new pipe within the old pipe. With Streamline Pipes, you can expect 60 years of service life out of your relined pipes!

If The Pipe Has Collapsed Can It Be Relined?

If your pipe has collapsed partially, we can reline it. If the sewer or stormwater pipe is fully collapsed then this will require, digging and a pipe replacement, to fix it correctly and costs more in labour. The pipe is impregnated with an epoxy Liner. Once cured, this creates a ‘new pipe, within the old pipe’. Very similar to a medical ‘stent’.

The benefits of using pipe relining for a cracked or partially collapsed pipe include:

  • No digging required
  • Permanent solution
  • Cost-effective
  • Less disruption – you can use your pipes within hours not days.
  • Landscaping, flooring, and driveways are not damaged.

How Long Does Pipe Relining Take?

It depends on many factors, including the size of the pipe and the access to this pipe. In most cases, your pipe can be relined in a few hours.

If you need the work done as a matter of urgency then StreamlinePipes can be there the next day after the quote is provided.

How Long Does Pipe Relining Last?

Pipe relining is a long-term solution. The pipe lining can last just the same if not longer than replacing in with a new PVC Pipe. Once it is in place you don’t have to worry about repairing or replacing it for years.

Relined pipes are more cost-effective than replacement of the entire pipe, which can be very expensive. Relining leaves your property intact, so there’s no need to dig up your yard or pathways or remove any landscaping features. You won’t even notice when our qualified plumbers are onsite!

StreamlinePipe relining saves money in the long run because:

  • It doesn’t require digging up yards and pathways in order to replace pipes that may be causing water damage under concrete slabs or driveways
  • We guarantee our work for 60 years – an industry first

How Does CIPP Relining Work?

Cured-In-Place-Piping (CIPP) relining is a method of repairing pipes that involves injecting a high-density polyurethane material into the pipe. The material hardens and forms a new pipe within the old pipe. This method of pipe repair was pioneered by Streamline Pipes and Drains over 31 years ago.

How Do I Know If My Pipes Are Blocked Or Broken?

If you are unsure whether your pipes need to be relined or repaired, contact us for a free, no-obligation inspection. We can help you to evaluate the condition of the pipes and advise you on all available options, contact us for help.

Does Pipe Relining Need To Be Done By A Specialist?

Absolutely.  Pipe relining requires specific equipment and training. The no-dig pipe repair solution is not taught at Tafe. Relining training is learnt ‘on the job’ and can take decades to perfect. It is worth thinking ‘will the plumbing company be around for 2o years to fix any possible problems”?

There are many companies out there claiming to be able to do this work effectively, but no one can match the quality and expertise of Streamline Pipes and Drains as they are only just beginning and Streamline has be Relining for over 31 years.

Is pipe relining approved by Australian standards?

Yes, pipe relining is approved by Australian standards. In fact, AS3600 (2016) and its subsequent revisions include requirements for the use of pipe relining as a method of remediation in both stormwater and sewer systems.

AS3600 is a set of standards for stormwater and wastewater systems that have been developed under the auspices of Standards Australia New Zealand (Standards NZ). The following standards apply:

  • AS3600 – general requirements for design, construction, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of water supply schemes including wastewater treatment works
  • AS3600.1 -2018 – quality management system standard for health sector facilities; quality management system standard for medical devices; other technical regulations made under Food Act 2014; classifications under Industrial Chemicals (Notification & Assessment) Act 1989; classification under Ozone Protection & Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989; environmental performance standards under several statutes including Hazardous Substances (Emergency Response Management) Regulations 2007; risk assessment framework under Hazardous Substances (Emergency Response Management) Regulations 2007

Can Root Intrusion Be Fixed With Pipe Relining?

Root intrusion is the result of tree roots growing into the pipes. Pipe relining is a perfect preventative solution when roots have invaded your sewer pipes, as the use of a High-Pressure Water Jet and inspection camera, is the precursor work required in order to clean and clear the blockage. Once this is done, then the StreamlinePipes relining system is able to install the pipe liner and get your pipes working again, with tree roots permanently removed from that part of the drain system.
