Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining may be a relatively new invention, but it has fundamentally altered the way drains are repaired and maintained.

Many people don’t want to think about the problems with their pipes. The functioning of important plumbing systems can cause many problems, including the development of roots, corrosion and degradation.

Due to the age of their houses, homes that are located in well-established suburbs are much more likely to have corrosion and root ingress. The sewer and stormwater pipes in older houses were usually made of galvanised or terracotta pipes. These materials were eventually substituted by PVC, which is a better product. However, many older houses still are constructed with these materials below the surface. Galvanised pipes are prone to rusting over time, and terracotta pipe allows tree roots to easily get into stormwater lines and sewer lines, leading to blockages.

The only method to repair leaks or eliminate the backups of sewage from pipes was to repair the pipes. You can save tons of money by using our no-dig pipe relining options.

Sewer Surgeon is Sydney’s most reliable pipe relining company. We provide our clients solutions that are not only robust but also economical.

The first step of the Pipe Relining process is a high-speed drain cleaning process using our Jet Blaster technology, which is of industrial strength. Pipes are cleaned to prepare for relining at this stage of the process. We don’t need to take out any pipes that are in use. Instead, we can construct the seamless, solid pipe within the boundary of the damaged pipe. This saves time and money. There’s no digging or there is no mess. You get fully functional pipes.

Our epoxy lining starts off as a liquid and is placed on the interior of pipes to protect them from damage. After it sets and hardens, the epoxy lining becomes an incredibly solid new piece of pipe which is free of the need for support from the older pipe. Root intrusion, corrosion, or any other issue that could cause problems in your old terracotta or galvanised plumbing system will be impossible to penetrate when the new relined pipe is installed.

Our trenchless approach to plumbing is a tried-and-true solution to your plumbing issues. It can be a cost-effective method to save money on landscape restorations or broken concrete. Re-line, repair and renew the condition of your pipes. You don’t have to dig. Reach out to our Pipe Relining experts immediately!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe is generally a rupture, split or crack in your home’s gas or water distribution system. Sometimes this burst pipe is apparent, for instance a worn-out or damaged flexi hose. Sometimes, the leak is concealed behind the wall by a copper line which could cause mould and even damage. Sewer Surgeon team is the most effective plumber to aid with emergency pipe bursts.

Pipes that are leaking should be identified and repaired as soon as they are discovered. A leak that is left unattended can cause significant damage to your property in the future. It’s the same for gas leaks, that if left unattended, could lead to gas poisoning, fire, or an explosion.

A burst pipe can be very hard to detect, but there are certain indicators 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 licensed plumbers are adept at identifying leaks in gas and water throughout Sydney. Our latest tools include thermal imaging, electronic listening, gas testing equipment, and gas smell technology. You can be assured that your home is safe with our leak detection methods.

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.

  • 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.

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 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 continuous use, gas fittings may get loose, corroded and ultimately fail. This is more common in older buildings, factories, homes, and other buildings that have gas appliances from the past. To avoid gas leaks it is essential to regularly check for leaks. In these inspections, possible dangers, damage or repairs are discovered and repaired. This proactive measure could save lives and prevent significant property damage.

Water Filtration Systems

How daunting is it to pick the correct water filter for your property?

Did you know there are various options in terms of filtration? Some water filters are more effective in removing specific contaminants than others. Certain systems are simpler to use and maintain whilst other systems have features that make them more effective. You must be able to identify the best option for your home. However, Sewer Surgeon is here to assist.

A carbon block filter is the simplest and most basic sort of water filtering. It is typically used in water pitchers or faucet filters. This is the perfect configuration for a single-stage water system that provides basic water filtration.

A better option is a two-stage filtration system that consists of an aeration filter and a carbon block filter to improve the lifespan of the system as well as its efficiency. A multi-stage multi-stage water filtering system is the best. It should include three filter stages to ensure that you only drink pure water.

Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

Your home’s roof system is not complete without gutters and downpipes. They provide style and function in addition to protection from Sydney’s harsh weather.

Despite the important importance they perform, gutters and downpipes often go unnoticed and are in dire need of regular maintenance and cleaning. The majority of leaks result from blocked or damaged gutters. It is possible to ensure that your home is well-maintained by having your gutters checked or getting a gutter cleaning service scheduled every 2-3 years. The service will look for any insects, leaves as well as any foreign objects. Check your downpipes and gutters if you see any leaks in the roof. This should be done before you decide to go through a total roofing replacement or restoration.

Cleansing your gutters is easy using the majority of DIY tools, but fixing a damaged gutter or downspout system can be a difficult job. It’s not easy to fix damaged gutters and loose guttering or downpipes. Only a professional roofing contractor will be able to efficiently and safely finish the job. We can also recommend the most cost-effective methods to help you save money.
