Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is a way of repairing cracked or broken pipes from the inside, without digging. Essentially, it means creating a new, tough pipe inside the existing damaged one, promoting a better flow and sealing off cracks.

Many people aren’t interested in thinking about the pipes under their houses. The vital plumbing system can result in problems with leaks, root growth, corrosion, and many other issues.

Homes that are well-established are more likely to be impacted by root ingress. The sewer and stormwater pipes of older houses were often made from galvanised or terracotta pipe. These materials have been superseded in the course of time by PVC. However many houses today still have these old pipes beneath the surface. Galvanised pipe is susceptible to rusting with time, and terracotta pipeline permits tree roots to easily get into sewer lines and stormwater lines, which can cause blockages.

In the past, when there was a breach,  the way to remove all clogs or backups in sewage was by replacing the damaged pipes. Our trenchless method does not require digging and will save you lots of money in the long run.

Sewer Surgeon is a leading expert in the field of pipe relining Sydney. We provide our clients with solutions that aren’t only permanent but also cost-effective.

A high-speed drain cleaning using our industrial strength jet blaster technology is the initial stage of the Pipe Relining process. This is the first step to prepare pipes for relining. There is no need to pull out the existing pipes. Instead we can create an unidirectional, strong pipe within the boundary of the damaged pipe. This can save time and cost. There is no digging or mess. All you need is functioning pipes once more.

The epoxy lining is created with liquid. It is then applied to your pipes to protect. After it sets and hardens the epoxy lining is a structurally sound new piece of pipe, which does away from the requirement for support from the older pipe. With the new lining, root intrusion, corrosion , or other issues that could affect your old terracotta and galvanised plumbing system will be virtually impossible to penetrate.

Our trenchless method of plumbing is an effective solution to your plumbing problems. This technique eliminates the need for landscape restorations or broken concrete, as well as costly excavation fees. Re-line, restore, and upgrade your pipes. You don’t have to dig. We are here to assist you!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe usually refers to a leak, split, break, crack or fracture in your home’s gas or water distribution system. Sometimes the burst pipe is evident, like a worn-out flexible hose. In some cases, the leak is not so obvious and may be concealed behind the wall. This copper line can cause damage and even mould. In any case, Sewer Surgeon is the plumber to contact for an emergency ruptured pipe.

Bust pipes should be found and fixed immediately, as a leak that is left unattended can cause major destruction to your property in the future. Gas leaks that are not addressed can cause gas poisoning, fire, and explosions.

Although pipes that have bursts are hard to spot, there are indications you can check if your property has a possible 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 skilled in detecting gas and water leaks in Sydney. We utilise the most current tools like thermal imaging and electronic hearing devices as well as nitrogen gas testing equipment, and gas smelling technologies. Our leak detection methods are secure, so you can be sure that your home is safe in our hands.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Are you wondering why your faucets are always leaky? The taps could be leaking because of the constant pressure in the water supply. These should be sealed to stop water from passing through and creating drips.

We can assist with any shower, toilet or tap leakage issue. Over the years, we have repaired every leak you could imagine and we have yet to come across an issue that we are not able to fix. Our plumbers are skilled and can evaluate the situation and recommend the most appropriate solution.

We will work with clients to determine a solution for their shower, toilet or tap in the most extreme situations. As with all of our repairs, we only use professional-grade materials that are of the highest standard and come with the longest-running warranty. This will ensure that the replacement item will last as long and is exactly as good as the day you got it.

Below are some of the leaks that we encounter:.

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

    Gas Fitting

    Plumbers refer to gas fitting as a service that includes gas leak repair installations of gas, and gas detectors.

    Take a look at the following services that a certified Sydney 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.

    Gas fittings can become loose, corroded or even fail after years of use. This is especially prevalent in older houses, factories, and those with old gas appliances and systems. Regular inspections are suggested to avoid gas leaks. Inspections are conducted to identify any possible damage or risks and then are repaired. This proactive approach could save lives and decrease the damage to property.

    Water Filtration Systems

    The choice of the best water filter system for your home can be a challenge.

    Did you know there are a variety of filters to think about and some are better at filtering out specific contaminants than others? Certain systems are simpler to use , while others offer more features. It’s important to know what you are looking for when selecting the most appropriate system for your house, however don’t worry, Sewer Surgeon has you covered.

    A carbon block would be the most basic, simple water filtering system. It is commonly used in faucets and water pitcher filters. This setup offers basic water filtration and is suitable for a single-stage water system.

    An upgrade to this system is two-stage systems that include a filtration system for sediment and a block filter. This would increase the system’s lifespan and effectiveness. To ensure that you have the purest water, a multi-stage water filter system that has three stages is the best option.

    Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

    Your roof’s most important components are the downpipes and gutters. They’re not just fashionable and efficient, they also safeguard your home from the storms and rain that Sydney experiences.

    Despite the vital function they play, gutters and downpipes are usually the least thought of areas that need regular maintenance and cleaning. Leaks are usually the result of blocked, neglected or damaged gutters. It is crucial to inspect your gutters at least twice per year. Make sure to check your gutters on a regular basis if there are any visible leaks. Before you decide to replace your roof or restore it, check the downpipes.

    Although DIY solutions can be efficient for cleaning gutters it can be difficult to fix damaged gutters or downspouts. It can be a challenge to fix damaged gutters, leaky gutter joints, leaky guttering or guttering or tiny holes. Only a roofing professional is able to safely and effectively finish the job. We can assist you in saving money by offering the most efficient solutions.
