Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining is an emerging technology that has changed the way drains are maintained and repaired.

A lot of people don’t bother contemplating the pipes that run beneath their houses. But, leaks, the development of roots, corrosion and the deterioration of pipes are all possible outcomes of this crucial plumbing system’s operations.

Because of the age of their houses, homes that are located in well-established suburbs are much more likely to be afflicted with corrosion and root intrusion. Older houses had stormwater lines and sewer lines made from galvanised pipe or Terracotta. These old materials have been replaced with PVC over time. However, many houses still use older pipe materials under the ground. Galvanised pipe tends to rust with time, and terracotta pipes allow the tree roots to easily access to enter your sewer and stormwater lines, which can cause obstructions.

Tradition dictated that if a pipe was damaged or had been blocked, only a replacement could be done. You can save tons of cash by choosing our no-dig pipe relining solutions.

Sewer Surgeon is Sydney’s leading company for pipe relining. We offer solutions that are permanent and cost-effective.

A high-speed drainage cleaning using our industrial strength jet blaster technology, is the first step in the Pipe Relining process. The first step of the Pipe Relining procedure is to clean and prepare pipes to be relined. It is not necessary to take out the pipes that are in use. Instead, we are able to create a strong, seamless pipe that is within the pipe’s borders that saves time and cost. There’s no digging, there’s no mess and the pipes will be fully operational again.

The epoxy liner is created as a liquid and is put on the inside of your pipes to protect the pipes. After hardening and setting the epoxy lining transforms into an incredibly solid new piece of pipe, which does away from the requirement for support from the older pipe. Corrosion, root intrusion or any other common concerns that could cause problems in your galvanised or terracotta pipe will be impossible to get through when the new relined pipe is installed.

Our trenchless plumbing system is a proven and reliable solution for your plumbing requirements. It is an efficient way to save money on landscape restorations or broken concrete. Renew, re-line and restore your pipe’s condition. There’s no need for you to dig. Call us now to talk with our Pipe Relining professionals!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe typically refers to a leak, split crack, break or fracture within your home water or gas distribution system. Sometimes, the burst pipe is obvious , such as a damaged flexible pipe. Sometimes the leak can be hidden behind the wall by copper pipes that can lead to mould and even damage. In any case, a Sewer Surgeon is the plumber you want in the event of an emergency pipe that has burst.

Pipes that are busted must be fixed immediately. Leaks can lead to serious property damage. The same is true for gas leaks, that if left unattended, could cause gas poisoning, fire, or gas explosion.

It is not easy to identify a leaky pipe However, there are certain signs that might indicate the presence of a leak.

  • 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 plumbers with licences are highly adept at identifying water and gas leaks throughout Sydney. We utilise the latest technology including thermal imaging and electronic listening equipment, nitrogen gas testing equipment, and gas smell technology. You can be assured that your home is secure thanks to our leak detection strategies.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Have you ever wondered why your taps always leak? Water entering your home is always under pressure. This pressure could cause damage to the seals on the taps. The water can leak through when the seals aren’t sealed enough, and it will cause dripping.

We can assist you with any type of leakage in your toilet tap, shower, or toilet. Through the years, we’ve seen and fixed every leak imaginable and have yet to encounter an issue that we were unable to repair. Our expert plumbers are able to analyse your situation and recommend the best option for you.

    Gas Fitting

    Gas fitting is the name employed by plumbers to describe services such as gas installation repairs for leaks and gas, as well as gas detection services.

    These are just a few of the services that a Sydney-certified gas fitter can provide:

    • 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 complete leak investigations and repairs for all your gas services

    In the course of years of use, gas fittings may get loose, corroded and ultimately fail. This may happen in old factories and homes with obsolete gas appliances or gas systems, which can put strain on fittings. Gas leaks can be averted through regular maintenance and inspections. During these inspections, possible risks, damage or repairs are discovered and repaired. This proactive measure could save lives and prevent serious property damage.

    Water Filtration Systems

    The choice to buy the best water treatment system for your property could be challenging.

    There are many filters that you can select from, each with distinct strengths and weaknesses. Certain systems are easy to maintain and use, while others provide more effective features. It’s crucial to know the features you should consider when selecting the right system for your home. Sewer Surgeon can help.

    The carbon block filter, which is often used in water pitchers and as faucet filters, could be the simplest and simplest water filtering system. This is the best method to offer the basic purification of water.

    A 2-stage filtration system, which consists of a sediment and carbon block filter can be upgraded to improve the system’s effectiveness and lifespan. The most ideal multi-stage water filtration system must comprise three stages of filtration to ensure you are drinking only the cleanest water.

    Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

    Gutters and downpipes make up the most important part of your roofing. They not only offer style and functionality, but they also play an essential role in protecting your property from Sydney’s severe weather.

    Despite the vital role that they play, downpipes and gutters are frequently the least-appreciated areas that require regular maintenance and cleaning. Gutters that are blocked, damaged or ignored can cause leaks. You can ensure your home’s well-maintained by having your gutters inspected or having a gutter cleaning service scheduled every 2-3 years. The service will look for any insects, leaves as well as any foreign objects. Be sure to inspect your gutters frequently for any obvious leaks. If you are planning to replace the entire roof or make repairs and make sure to check the downpipes.

    Although DIY solutions are usually efficient for cleaning gutters it can be difficult to fix damaged downspouts and gutters. It can be a challenge to fix damaged gutters or leaky gutter joints, loose guttering or guttering, or tiny holes. Only a professional roofing contractor has the expertise to safely and efficiently do the job. We can help you save money by offering the most efficient solutions.
