Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining, although it is relatively new technology has transformed the method of drains being cleaned and their maintenance are conducted.

People don’t like to think about the problems with their pipes. The operation of vital plumbing systems could cause various issues, including root development, corrosion and deterioration.

Due to their age, houses that are located in well-established suburbs are much more likely to have corrosion and root intrusion. The sewer and stormwater of older houses were usually constructed of galvanised pipes or Terracotta. Over time these materials have been replaced by PVC, which is a far superior product, however, the majority of homes today use these pipe products under the surface. Galvanised pipes can rust rapidly, while terracotta pipe makes it possible for tree roots and other debris to make it into stormwater pipes and create blockages.

The only method to repair a leak or to remove the backups of sewage from pipes was to repair them. Today the no-dig pipe relining solutions allow you to cut out the costs of typical digging and landscaping repairs and can save you tons of cash.

Sewer Surgeon, a Sydney-based specialist in pipe relining, offers solutions that are both permanent and cost-effective for our customers.

The initial step of Pipe Relining is an efficient drain cleaning. This is accomplished with our high-performance jet blaster technology. This step cleanses the pipes and prepares to be relined. It is not necessary to tear out the existing pipes. Instead we can create the seamless, solid pipe within the boundary of the damaged pipe. This saves time and cost. There’s no digging or there is no mess. You will receive completely functional pipes.

Our epoxy lining starts off as a liquid and is placed on the inside of your pipes to protect the pipes. After it has set and is hardened, your lining will act as a strong new pipe. It is not dependent upon the structural integrity or age of the pipe. With the new pipe it will be nearly impossible to penetrate old galvanised and terracotta pipes due to root intrusions, corrosion, and other typical issues.

Our trenchless method of plumbing is an efficient solution to all your plumbing issues. This approach eliminates the headache of landscaping restorations damaged concrete and costly excavation costs. Re-line, renew, and restore the condition of your pipes. There is no need for digging. Reach out to our Pipe Relining experts today!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe is generally a sign of a leak, fracture or crack in the gas or water distribution system. Sometimes, the burst pipe appears obvious like a worn-out flexible hose. Sometimes the leak is not as apparent and could be hidden behind the wall. This copper line may cause damage and even mould. Sewer surgeons are the most effective plumber to aid with emergency leaks.

Bust pipes must be repaired immediately. Leaks can cause serious property damage. Gas leaks can lead to gas poisoning, gas fires, or even gas explosion if it isn’t addressed immediately.

A burst pipe can be very hard to detect, but there are certain burst pipe symptoms which indicate a possibility of 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 experienced in detecting water and gas leaks within Sydney. We employ the latest equipment like thermal imaging, electronic hearing equipment as well as nitrogen gas testing devices as well as gas-smelling technology. We utilise secure leak detection methods which means your house is safe with us.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Do you wonder why your taps are constantly leaking? The water that flows into your home is pressured and this constant pressure can cause problems for the seals that seal your taps. If the seals do not appear to be airtight, water can get through, causing dripping.

We can help you solve any leakage issue with your taps, toilets, and showers. We have handled every kind of leak, and have never needed to fix it. Our skilled plumbers can evaluate your situation and suggest the best solution for you.

We’ll work with customers to locate a suitable replacement for the toilet, shower or tap in the most serious situations. In all of our services, we employ high-end, professional-grade components of the highest quality with the longest-running warranty. This ensures that the replacement component will last the length of time you remember it to be.

The most frequent leaks we see are listed below:

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

    Gas Fitting

    Plumbers describe gas fitting as a service that includes repair of gas leaks, installation of gas and gas detectors.

    Here are the services in Sydney that a 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 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 years of usage, gas fittings may  be corroded or loose. This may happen in old homes and factories with outdated gas systems or appliances, which can put strain on fittings. Regular inspections and maintenance are crucial to stop gas leaks. These inspections will identify potential hazards, damage, and repairs that can be repaired. This proactive approach could save lives and prevent significant property damage.

    Water Filtration Systems

    How difficult is it to select the correct water filter for your house?

    Did you know there are many filtration options available? Some are better at removing certain substances over others. Some systems are easier to use and maintain whilst others have features that make them more effective. It’s important to be aware of the features you should look for when choosing the best system to fit your needs. Sewer Surgeon can help.

    Carbon block filters are the most basic and basic type of water filtration. This filter is commonly used in water pitchers or faucet filters. This is the ideal configuration to offer basic water filtration.

    A possible upgrade could be a two-stage filtration system that consists of a sediment filter and a carbon block filter that can increase the longevity of the system and its effectiveness. To ensure you receive the purest water using a multi-stage filter system with three stages is the best option.

    Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

    Gutters and downpipes make up the most important element of your roofing. They’re stylish and practical, and can protect your property from rain and the brutal Sydney weather.

    Despite their crucial role, gutters and downpipes are often neglected and require frequent maintenance and cleaning. The majority of leaks result from blocked or damaged gutters. To ensure the proper upkeep of your house, it is ideal to check your gutters regularly or get an annual gutter cleaning service scheduled 2-3 times a year to look for leaves, debris, pests and other foreign objects. If you start to experience leaks in your roof, always check your downpipes and gutters prior to contemplating any roof repair or full replacement of the roof.

    The majority of DIY solutions are effective in cleaning your gutters but fixing a damaged gutter and downspout system is a completely different story. It is not easy to fix broken and cracked gutters and downpipes that are loose or leaking, rusted gutter with small holes or leaking gutter joints. Only a roofing professional can complete the task effectively and safely. We can also recommend the most cost-effective solutions to help you save money.
