Pipe Relining In Brisbane
Pipe relining is quickly becoming a popular method for fixing broken or blocked drains. This is because this method is cost effective and much more efficient than other plumbing methods for clearing blocked drains. Although it sounds like quite an easy process, our North Brisbane plumbers are needed to ensure the procedure runs smoothly with the right tools and expertise. At Buz Plumbing, we specialise in Pipe Relining, so give us a call today to save yourself a yard full of trenches and a need for a complete reinstallation.
So, what is Pipe Relining? Pipe Relining is the new and preferred method for repairing cracked or broken drainage pipes internally. This means no more digging trenches and digging up your backyard. The goal with Pipe Relining is simply creating a new stronger pipe inside the damaged area, ensuring a smoother flow and sealed off cracks. The reason this happens is the tube contains a coating of resin that, when applied, sticks to the internal wall of the existing pipe, giving your pipes protection against tree roots.
How is Pipe Relining Performed?
Firstly, Buz Plumbing will inspect the pipes and take measurements by sending a drain camera down within the pipe. We do this to assess the pipes for any cracks or drain blockages. This helps us identify the problematic areas and decide on the best course of action. Once we have those measurements, we proceed to create a custom liner with an inflatable bladder. These will match the specifications of the internal piping.
After we have made the decision to reline the pipe, the pipe is cleaned using a hydro-jetter. This pushed water through with extreme pressure to remove any grease within the piping. This has to be performed as the resin will not merge with copious amounts of residue attached.
Once the pipes have been thoroughly cleaned, the felt liner is soaked in an epoxy resin and the deflated bladder is inserted into the pipe liner. We use an attached rope on each end to pull the pipe liner into place, doing this by using the existing access points. The felt liner and deflated bladder are pulled into position within the pipe, done so with no digging whatsoever. To ensure the equipment is lined up perfectly, we insert the drain camera and make movements accordingly. The bladder is inflated, this action blows out the felt liner sealing it against the original pipes, creating our new pipe that covers up any breaks or cracks. The bladder is then deflated and pulled back out, leaving our client with a brand new, strong and watertight pipe.
To finalise this procedure, we re-insert our drain camera to inspect the sealed area to ensure everything has been done correctly and we have a new tough pipe.
