Pipe Relining

Pipe Relining is an ingenuous technology that has revolutionised the way drains can be repaired and maintained.

Many people aren’t interested in thinking about the pipes under their houses. However, leaksand the development of roots, corrosion and degradation are all possible results of this essential plumbing system’s functioning.

In established suburbs, homes are more likely to have corrosion or root intrusion because of their older age. Terracotta and galvanised pipes were used for stormwater and sewerage in older houses. In the course of time, these materials have been superseded by PVC which is a much better product, but many houses today still contain these older pipe materials in the surface. Galvanised pipes can rust quickly and terracotta pipes make it easy for tree roots as well as other waste to make it into stormwater pipes and create blockages.

The norm tells us that if a pipeline was damaged or clogged, it could only be fixed when replaced. Relining your pipes with no digging is now possible, which will save you tons of cash.

Sewer Surgeon in Sydney is a top pipe relining expert. We offer solutions that are permanent and cost-effective for our clients.

The initial step in the Pipe Relining process is a high-speed drain cleaning using the Jet Blaster, a high-performance jet cleaner. The first step in the Pipe Relining procedure is to clean and prepare pipes for relining. We don’t have to remove the pipes that are in use. Instead, we’ll make a seamless, strong pipe that is inside the damaged pipe saving time and cash. There is no digging and there is no mess. You get fully functional pipes.

Our epoxy lining starts off as a liquid applied to the interior of pipes in order to protect them. The lining is then applied to the pipe and then hardened. It functions as an entirely new solid, structurally sound pipe that does not rely on the structural strength for support. Corrosion, root intrusion or other issues which could lead to problems with your galvanised or terracotta plumbing system will be impossible to penetrate by the new pipe installed.

Our trenchless method of plumbing is a proven solution to your plumbing issues. This method saves you the headache of landscaping restorations, broken concrete and expensive excavation fees. Re-line, renew, and restore the condition you pipes. There’s no reason to dig. Get in touch with our Pipe Relining experts today!

Burst Pipe Repair

A burst pipe typically refers to a leak, split crack, break or a fracture in your home water or gas distribution system. Sometimes this burst pipe is apparent, such as an old flexi hose that is worn out. Sometimes the leak isn’t so obvious and may be concealed behind the wall. This copper line can cause damage and mould. Sewersurgeon is the right plumber to call when you have to fix the burst pipe.

Pipes that are leaking should be identified and repaired immediately as a leak left unattended will cause major destruction to your property in the future. A gas leak can cause gas poisoning, gas fires or even an explosion of gas If it’s not addressed promptly.

A burst pipe can be very hard to detect, but there are certain indicators of 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 plumbers are licensed and have many years of experience in identifying leaks in gas or water in Sydney. Our latest tools include thermal imaging electronic listening, nitrogen gas testing equipment and gas smelling technology. Our leak detection procedures are all very safe and secure, so you don’t have to worry about it, your house is in safe hands.

Leaking Taps and Toilets

Have you ever thought about the reason why your taps always leak? The taps could be leaking due to the continuous pressure in your water supply. These seals should be sealed to prevent water from flowing through, causing drips.

We can assist with any kind of faucet, shower leakage issue, toilet or shower. We’ve faced every type of leak, and have never needed to fix it. Our plumbers are experienced and can evaluate the situation and offer the best solution.

In the most dire instances, where the shower, tap or toilet has replacement, we’ll work with you to select a replacement that meets your budget and needs. Like all repairs, we will only use premium materials that are long-lasting and of the highest quality. This ensures that your replacement component lasts for as long as it can and is as gorgeous as the day you received it.

These are the most frequently reported leaks we’ve seen:

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

    Gas Fitting

    Plumbers refer to gas fittings as services like repair of gas leaks, installations of gas, and gas detection.

    See below services that a certified Sydney gas fitter could 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 a period of time, gas fittings may be corrosive, loose and even stop working. This is common in older homes and factories with outdated gas appliances and systems that put stress on fittings. Regular inspections are recommended to prevent gas leaks. Potential hazards, damage or repairs can be detected through these inspections and can be fixed. This proactive action could save lives and protect properties from serious damage.

    Water Filtration Systems

    You’ll be shocked at how difficult it can be to choose the best water filter system that suits your needs and your house.

    Did you know there were many filtration options available? Some are better at filtering specific substances than others. While some systems are simpler to maintain and use while others are more robust in their features. It is important to understand the key features to look out for to select the best system for your home. However, Sewer Surgery has you covered.

    Carbon block filters, often used in water pitchers as well as faucet filters, could be the simplest and most straightforward water filtering system. This setup offers basic water filtration and is perfect for one-stage water systems.

    A 2-stage filtration system consisting of a sediment filter and carbon block filter could be upgraded to increase the system’s effectiveness and lifespan. The most ideal multi-stage water filtration system should comprise 3 stages of filtering to ensure you’re drinking only pure water.

    Roof Leaks and Gutter Cleans

    Gutters, and downpipes, are among the most important components of the roofing system. They offer style and function and also protect your property from the storms and the harsh Sydney climate.

    Despite their important role they are the least well-known and neglected places. They need to be regularly cleaned and maintained. Most leaks can be traced to damaged or blocked gutters. Cleaning your gutters should be scheduled at least twice a year to inspect for debris and leaves. Be sure to inspect your gutters frequently in the event of obvious leaks. If you are planning to replace your roof or restore it, check the downpipes.

    Although DIY techniques may be effective to clean gutters, fixing damaged gutters and downspouts is not an easy task. It’s not easy to fix damaged gutters, downpipes that are not in good condition or have been damaged. Only a roofing professional is able to do the job safely and efficiently. We also can recommend the most cost-effective solutions to help you save money.
