Got Drainage Issues?

When your toilet is not flushing or your drains are clogged, it could be a serious problem. If you’ve tried using a plunger and chemical drain cleaners but nothing seems to work, you know you may need professional help. In this situation, the worst-case scenario is pipe relining or a total sewer pipe replacement. Not only is this extremely expensive but oftentimes driveways and footpaths may need to be dug up to reach damaged pipework.

However, there is an alternative to destructive sewer pipe replacement – pipe relining technology.

What is Pipe Relining Technology and How Does it Work?

Sewer pipes suffer damage from a number of different things with aging pipes and tree root intrusions being the most common causes of cracks, holes or blockages. So, before Silver Water Plumbing can repair your problem using pipe relining technology, we must first find and remove any blockages. We use a drain camera to diagnose where exactly your pipe has been compromised. The next step is to clear the problem section of the pipe using powerful drain clearing tools and restore it to its original diameter. This allows us to insert the pipe relining bladder and begin the magic!

Pipe relining is an ingenious process where a liner is introduced into the damaged pipe through a small hole. These liners are composed of non-woven polyester felt with the outside layer being covered with polyurethane resin. Once an epoxy resin solution is applied to the felt, it will become a lot stronger when cured. After the is liner installed, an inflatable bladder is used to press the liner against the pipe’s interior. The inflated bladder produces heat which then sets the resin. Finally, once the resin has hardened, the liner is slowly cooled which stops the new pipe lining from shrinking. Although, the new pipe will have a slightly smaller diameter than your old pipe, the flow rate will actually increase due to the smoother and unimpeded pipe lining.

Is Pipe Relining Technology Safe?

Not only is pipe relining technology safe, but our plumbers may be able to restore your pipes to better-than-new condition. This technology has been around over 35 years and is a proven method of repairing most pipe problems at a fraction of the cost of full replacement. The best thing is that we don’t even need to dig up your old pipes to install the new pipe lining and the process is able to rehabilitate most types of pipes including those made of clay and concrete. Put simply, this means that you can go about your business with minimal interruptions to your daily life.

Why Choose Pipe Relining Technology?

Besides being up to 40% cheaper than traditional pipe replacement methods, pipe relining technology has a number of other benefits, including:

  • Significant cost savings
  • Avoiding collateral damage to driveways, footpaths and foundations
  • Minimal disruption to your daily life
  • Increased pipe flow rates
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Avoiding future pipe corrosion issues
