Are you tired of constantly dealing with leaky pipes, blocked drains, and other plumbing issues? As a homeowner or business owner, these problems can quickly become a major headache. Fortunately, Local Melbourne Plumbing at localmelbourneplumbing.com.au has introduced a revolutionary solution to these age-old issues: pipe relining in Melbourne.
What is Pipe Relining?Pipe relining in Melbourne is a modern plumbing technique that involves repairing damaged pipes without the need for costly and disruptive excavation work. Traditional methods involved digging up entire sections of land or walls to access pipes for repairs or replacements, whereas relining only requires minimal digging and trenching. This approach not only saves time but also preserves the structural integrity of buildings and landscapes.
Why Choose Relining in Melbourne?Local provides comprehensive pipe relining services in Melbourne that are tailored to suit the specific needs of each client. Whether it be blockages caused by tree roots, corrosion or damaged pipes due to ground movement; their professional technicians offer practical solutions that deliver long-lasting results.
Advantages of Relining
- Saves money compared to traditional repair methods.
- Less disruptive than older methods.
- It’s much more efficient as repairs can be carried out promptly.
- The repaired section will have better flow capacity than old pipelines.
- It is environmentally friendly as piping systems stay in place rather than being replaced.
How Does Relining Work?The process involves fitting an epoxy resin liner inside the affected pipeline using state-of-the-art cameras and robotic equipment to clean, measure and bend lining material into place at known locations within existing pipes. Once in place, the liner is cured using hot air until it hardens forming a protective shell around the inner surface of the old pipe; creating a smooth seamless surface that effectively acts like a new pipe even if parts of the old pipe had failed.
6 Steps Involved in Relining
- Initial inspection with a camera to identify where the problem is located and what's causing it.
- Marking out the relining location, cleaning out the damaged pipe, and removing any blockages using high-pressure jet cleaning equipment.
- Taking measurements of the pipework to ensure that the liner used will fit correctly.
- Polymers are impregnated into the lining material to protect against leaks and corrosion.
- The liner is installed via inversion or pulling depending on the installation method required in each instance.
- Once properly installed and cured, another camera inspection confirms everything is as it should be, and water flow capabilities are restored.
