Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining has transformed the way drains are fixed and maintained.

Many people don’t want to think about the issues that are happening to their underground pipes. However, leaks, root development, corrosion, and the deterioration of pipes are all possible outcomes of this essential plumbing system’s operations.

Because of their age, homes in well-established suburbs are more likely to suffer from root ingress and corrosion. Older houses often included stormwater and sewers constructed of galvanised pipes, or Terracotta. In the course of time, these materials have been replaced by PVC which is a far superior product, however, many houses today still use these pipe products under the ground. Galvanised pipe tends to rust over time and terracotta pipes allow easy access for tree roots to invade your sewer and stormwater lines, which can cause blockages.

The past was when, when there was a breach, it was possible to completely remove the clogs or backups of sewage by replacing the damaged pipes. It is possible to save money by using our no-dig pipe relining services.

Sewer Surgeon is Sydney’s most reliable pipe relining company. We provide our customers solutions that are not just long-lasting, but also cost efficient.

The initial step of Pipe Relining is a high-speed drain cleaning. We utilise our industrial strength, jet blaster technology to do this. Pipes are cleaned prior to preparation for relining during this step of the procedure. It is not necessary to tear out any pipes that are in use. Instead, we can construct a seamless, sturdy pipe that is within the boundaries of the damaged pipe. This will save time and money. No digging or mess. All you need is fully functional pipes again.

The epoxy liner is a fluid which is placed within your pipes to safeguard them. When it is set and solidifies, the lining acts like a structurally sound, new pipe. The lining doesn’t depend on the integrity of the old pipe for support. The new pipe lining root intrusion, corrosion , or other problems that can affect your old terracotta and galvanised plumbing systems will be virtually impossible to penetrate.

Our trenchless plumbing solution is a tested and reliable solution to your plumbing needs. It can be a cost-effective method to save money on landscape restorations or broken concrete. You can renew, re-line and repair the condition of your pipes. There’s no need to be digging. Contact our Pipe Relining experts now!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe is generally an indication of a split, rupture crack, break or split in your home’s gas or water distribution system. Sometimes this burst pipe is obvious, such a worn-out or damaged flexible hose. Sometimes the leak can be hidden behind the wall with a copper line which could cause mould and even damage. Sewer Surgeon is able to assist you with any burst emergency pipe.

It is important to find and repair bust pipes as soon as you can. If left unattended, a leak can cause major damage to your home. Gas leaks that are not dealt with promptly can cause major damages to your property which could result in gas poisoning or fire.

While burst pipes aren’t always difficult to spot but there are signs that can indicate the presence of leaks.

  • Gas smell – if you have the distinct smell of gas in your house, please call Sewer Surgeon immediately. Gas leaks should be dealt with urgently and should not be handled lightly.
  •  Mould – Mould spores can go undetected until it’s too late, spreading to various locations and causing some serious damage. If you detect mould in your house, it could be due to a burst pipe behind the wall.
  • Wall Stains – water from a burst pipe will leave discoloration on your walls and ceilings. This is a tell tale sign of a water leak and should be investigated immediately
  • Increased water bill – leaking pipes can significantly increase the cost of your water bill. If something does not look right, be sure to check with a leak detection professional.
  • Lower water pressure – pinhole leaks and fractured pipes can reduce the water pressure in your home. If your water pressure drops suddenly, it could mean a pipe has burst and started to leak. It is best to call a specialist, like Sewer Surgeon, to investigate this.

Our licensed plumbers have many decades of experience in detecting leaks in gas or water in Sydney. We utilise the latest technology, such as thermal imaging as well as electronic listening equipment, nitrogen gas testing equipment, and gas smell technology. Our leak detection techniques are secure so you can be assured your house is in safe hands.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Have you ever wondered why your taps are constantly leaking? The water that enters your home is under pressure which could cause leakage. The seals need to be secure to prevent water from getting through, causing drips.

We are able to assist with any kind of shower, tap leakage issue, toilet or shower. We’ve fixed every kind of leak through the years and have never encountered a problem that could not be solved. Our experienced plumbers will assess your situation and recommend the best option for you.

We’ll work with our clients to find a replacement for the toilet, shower or faucet in the most serious instances. We only use the best products and come with a lengthy warranty. This ensures that the replacement component will last until you’ve remembered it to be.

The most frequent leaks we encounter are below:

  • Leaking shower base
  • Leaking Water Tanks
  • Leaking Pipes
  • Leaking Taps
  • Dripping Shower Heads
  • Leaking Cisterns
  • Leaking Toilets

Gas Fitting

Gas fitting is the name plumbers use to describe services like gas installation repairs for gas leaks, gas leak repair, and gas detection.

These are just a few of the services that a gas fitter who is certified in Sydney could offer:

  • A Sydney gas fitter can help you convert from another energy source to gas. An example would be if you decide to switch from electric to gas heating.
  • A Sydney gas fitter can assist you with problems with your gas cooking appliances. This includes large high-end ranges and small cooktops. We can also provide recommendations on the best appliances to suit your needs
  • A Sydney gas fitter can install or repair your gas water heater and appliances.
  • A Sydney gas fitter can help you install a new gas line or relocate a current gas line.
  • A Sydney gas fitter can complete leak investigations and repairs for all your gas services

After a few years of use gas fittings may get loose, corrosive, or stop working. This is common in older homes as well as factories with old gas appliances or gas systems. Regular inspections are required to prevent gas leaks. During these inspections, potential risks, damage, or repairs will be identified and fixed. This proactive approach will save lives and minimise the damage to property.

Water Filtration Systems

You would be surprised by how difficult it could be to choose the best water filter that is suitable for your home.

There are many options for filters. Each is more effective at eliminating specific pollutants than the other. Certain systems are simple to maintain and use, while others provide more effective features. It is important to understand what to be looking for when selecting the most appropriate system for your house, however don’t fret, Sewer Surgeon has you covered.

The most basic and simple water filtration system would use a carbon block filter, commonly used in water pitchers and faucet filters. This configuration provides basic water filtration and is perfect for an uni-stage water system.

The system is able to be upgraded by a 2-stage filter system. It consists of both a sediment filter AND carbon-block filters. This will increase system effectiveness and extend its life. The most ideal multi-stage water filtration system must consist of 3 filter stages to ensure you’re drinking only pure water.

Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

Your roof’s most important components are the downpipes and gutters. They’re stylish and practical, and can shield your home from the rain and the brutal Sydney weather.

Despite the crucial function they play, downpipes and gutters are usually the least thought of areas that require regular cleaning and maintenance. Blockage, damage to the gutters and neglect are the primary causes of leaks. The gutter cleaning service should be scheduled at minimum every two years to check for leaves and debris. Check your gutters and downpipes if you notice any leaks in the roof. This is before you think about a complete roofing replacement or restoration.

While DIY gutter cleaning methods may work, it’s simple to repair the damage to your gutter or downspout. It is not easy to fix cracked and damaged gutters and downpipes that are loose or leaking and rusted gutters that have small gaps or leaky gutter joints. Only a roofing professional knows how to tackle the task effectively and safely. We can help you save money by suggesting the most effective solutions.
