Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining is an ingenious technology that has revolutionised the method of repairing drains and maintained.

Most people don’t want to think about issues in their home’s plumbing system. However, this vital plumbing system’s operation can result in leaks and the development of roots, corrosion or deterioration.

Homes that are well-established are more susceptible to being impacted by root intrusion. The sewer and stormwater of older homes were typically constructed of galvanised pipes or terracotta. Although PVC is replacing these older materials over time, lots of houses have them under the ground. Galvanised pipes are susceptible to rusting with time, and the terracotta pipeline allows trees to easily enter sewer lines and stormwater lines, leading to blockages.

Traditional wisdom dictated that if a pipeline was damaged or was blocked and needed to be replaced, it could only be done. Today, no-dig pipe restoration options are readily available that can save you money.

Sewer Surgeon is Sydney’s most respected pipe relining service. We provide our customers solutions that are not only long-lasting, but also cost efficient.

The first step of the Pipe Relining process is an extremely fast drainage cleaning process using our industrial strength blaster technology. This step involves cleaning the pipes to prepare for the relining. There is no need to pull out the existing pipes. Instead, we can build a seamless, sturdy pipe inside the confines of the damaged pipe. This will save time and cost. There is no digging and there is no mess. You will receive fully functional pipes.

Our epoxy lining starts as liquid. It is then sprayed onto your pipes to shield. When it is set and solidifies the lining functions as an extremely solid, newly constructed pipe. The lining does not depend on the strength of the older pipe for support. The corrosion, root intrusion or any other issue that could cause problems in the galvanised or terracotta pipe will be impossible to get through by the new pipe installed.

Our trenchless plumbing approach is a proven solution for your plumbing problems. This is a cost-effective way to reduce the cost of landscaping repairs or cracked concrete. Re-line, repair, and maintain the health of your pipes. There is no need for digging. Call us now to talk with our Pipe Relining professionals!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe is a hose that has been damaged, broken, leaking, cracked, or ruptured in your home or gas water distribution system. Sometimes the burst pipe is evident, like a worn-out flexible hose. Sometimes the leak can be hidden behind the wall by copper pipes which could cause mould and damage. Sewer Surgeon is your plumber if you have an emergency ruptured pipe.

Pipes that are leaking should be identified and fixed immediately, as a leak that is left unattended can result in major destruction to your property over time. Gas leaks that are not dealt with promptly can cause major damage to your property, including gas poisoning and fire.

The pipes that burst are difficult to identify, but there are some signs 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 have a lot of knowledge in the detection of water or gas leaks in Sydney. We employ the latest equipment such as thermal imaging, electronic hearing equipment as well as nitrogen gas testing devices and gas smelling technology. All of our leak detection procedures are very secure so you can be sure that your home is in safe hands.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Have you ever wondered why your taps are constantly leaking? Your taps could be damaged due to pressure constant. Water may seep in if these seals aren’t tight enough and result in drips.

We are able to assist you with any type of leakage in your toilet, tap, or shower. We’ve seen every possible leak and have been able to fix any. Our plumbers are experienced and will assess the situation and offer the best solution.

If your toilet, tap, or shower needs to be replaced as an emergency, we’ll work closely with you to find the most suitable replacement. We only use top high-quality materials that come with a lifetime warranty. This will ensure that the replacement piece will last for a long time and be exactly as good as the day you got it.

The most frequent leaks we encounter are below:\

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

Gas Fitting

Plumbers employ the term gas fitting to refer to services such as gas installation, leak repair, and gas detection.

Here are a few services a 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.
  • 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

Gas fittings can get loose, corroded, or even fail in the course of decades of constant usage. This is more common in older houses, factories, as well as those equipped with older gas appliances and systems. Regular maintenance and inspections are essential to prevent gas leaks. The inspections will reveal the potential for hazards, damage and repairs that can be remedied. This proactive step could save lives and also help to prevent major property damage.

Water Filtration Systems

The decision to purchase the ideal water filter system for your home could be a challenge.

There are numerous options for filters. Each one is superior in removing particular contaminants than others. Although some are simpler to maintain and operate while others are more robust in their features. It is essential to understand the features to be looking for when selecting the right solution for your home. Sewer Surgeon can help.

The most basic and simple water filtration system would use a carbon block filter, typically employed in water pitchers as well as faucet filters. This setup is great for basic water filtration.

A 2-stage filtration system, which consists of a sediment filter and carbon block filter can be upgraded to improve efficiency and longevity of the system. A multi-stage water filtration system must consist of 3 filter stages to ensure that you drink only the cleanest water.

Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

Gutters and downpipes are some of the most important components of your roofing system. They not only offer style and function but also play essential roles in protecting your property from rain and Sydney’s harsh weather.

Despite the vital importance they perform, gutters and downpipes often are not noticed and are in dire need of regular maintenance and cleaning. Damage to gutters, blockages and neglect are the primary causes of leaks. Make sure to check your gutters at least every year, and plan an appointment for a service to clean them. Before you consider a roof restoration or complete replacement of your roof, be sure to check your gutters.

While DIY methods may work for cleaning gutters, repairing damaged gutters and downspouts isn’t an easy job. It’s difficult to repair damaged gutters, loose guttering or downpipes. Only a professional in roofing is equipped to effectively and safely do the task. In addition, we can suggest cost-effective solutions that can save you money.
