Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining has fundamentally altered the method of drain repair and maintenance.

Many don’t like to think about what’s happening to their pipes in the underground. This essential plumbing system could lead to problems with leaks, root growth, corrosion, and other issues.

The homes in the established suburbs are more likely to suffer from root ingress or corrosion because of their older age. Older houses often included stormwater and sewers composed of galvanised pipes or Terracotta. Even though PVC has replaced these older materials over time, many homes still have them in the ground. Galvanised pipe tends to rust with time, and terracotta pipe allows the tree roots to easily access to get into your sewer and stormwater lines, causing obstructions.

In the past, when there was a leak or a leak, it was possible to remove all clogs or sewage backups by replacing the affected pipes. Today, no-dig restoration options are available that will save you money.

Sewer Surgeon is a leading pipe relining specialist in Sydney. We provide our customers with solutions that are not only durable, but also cost-effective.

The initial step of Pipe Relining is a high speed drain cleaning. This is done with our high-performance jet blaster technology. This is the first step to prepare pipes to be relined. It is not required to cut off the pipes that are in use. Instead, we are able to create a strong, seamless pipe that is within the pipe’s borders, which saves time and money. There’s no digging, no mess, just fully functional pipes once more.

The epoxy lining is created as a liquid. It is then applied to the pipes in order to protect. When it is set and solidifies, the lining acts like an aesthetically sound, brand new pipe. The lining does not depend on the integrity of the old pipe for support. The corrosion, root intrusion or any other issue which could lead to problems with the galvanised or terracotta plumbing system will be almost impossible to get through when the new relined pipe is installed.

Our trenchless method of plumbing is an effective solution to all your plumbing problems. This method is an efficient way to avoid the expense of landscape restorations or broken concrete. Re-line, restore and repair your pipes. You don’t have to dig. Our Pipe Relining experts are on hand immediately!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe is usually referring to a leak, split, break, crack or a fracture in your gas or water distribution system. Sometimes, this pipe burst is evident, for instance an old flexi hose that is worn out. Sometimes the leak can be hidden behind the wall due to a copper line that can lead to mould and even damage. In either case, Sewer Surgeon is the plumber to contact for an emergency ruptured pipe.

It is essential to identify and repair any busted pipes promptly. If a leak is left unattended can cause serious damage to your home. It’s the same for gas leaks, which left unattended, can result in gas poisoning, fire, or an explosion.

It’s difficult to see a burst pipe, but there are certain signs that could be tell you if there’s 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 licensed plumbers are highly proficient in identifying leaks in gas and water throughout Sydney. We employ the latest techniques like thermal imaging and electronic listening equipment. You can be confident that your home is safe with our leak detection methods.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Have you ever wondered why your taps leak so often? The water that flows into your home is under pressure, and this constant pressure can cause problems for the seals that seal your taps. If these seals are not air-tight, water will get through, which can cause dripping.

We are able to assist you with any type of leakage in your toilet tap, shower, or toilet. We have been fixing all kinds of leaks over the years. If your toilet, tap or shower is leaking or leaking, our expert plumbers will conduct a value and recommend the most appropriate solution to meet your requirements.

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

    Gas Fitting

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

    These are some of the services that a gas fitter who is certified in Sydney 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

    After years of continuous use, gas fittings may become loose, corroded, and ultimately fail. This can happen in old factories or homes with outdated gas systems that strain the fittings. Gas leaks can be avoided through regular maintenance and inspections. Inspections can identify potential hazards, damage, and repairs that are repaired. This proactive approach could save lives and also help to prevent major property damage.

    Water Filtration Systems

    You’ll be shocked at how difficult it can be to locate the perfect water filter that is suitable for your home.

    Did you know there are a variety of filtering systems that you can consider Some are more effective in removing specific pollutants than others. Certain systems are easier to operate and maintain while others come with more sophisticated features. Sewer surgeon is the answer.

    The simplest and most basic water filtration system is to use a carbon block filter, commonly utilised in water pitchers and faucet filters. This setup is great for water filtration that is basic.

    A possible upgrade could be a two-stage filtration system that consists of a sediment filter and a carbon block filter to increase the longevity of the system and its effectiveness. The ideal multi-stage water filtering system should comprise three stages of filtration to ensure you’re drinking only the purest water.

    Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

    Gutters, and downpipes, are the most crucial parts of the roofing system. They are not just stylish and functional but also play an important role in protecting your property from rain and Sydney’s harsh weather.

    Despite the important role they perform, gutters and downpipes often are not noticed and are in dire need of regular cleaning and maintenance. Most leaks are due to damaged, blocked, or neglected gutters. Make sure to check your gutters at least every year, and plan an annual cleaning service to clear them. It is recommended to inspect your downpipes and gutters when you spot any leaks on the roof. This is prior to when you think about a complete roofing replacement or restoration.

    While DIY techniques may be effective for cleaning gutters, repairing damaged downspouts and gutters is not an easy process. It is not easy to repair cracked and broken gutters and downpipes that are loose or leaking, rusted gutters with small holes or leaking gutter joints. Only a roofing professional can handle the job in a safe manner. We will also suggest the most cost-effective options to help you save money.
