Pipe Relining is a relatively new technology, but it has completely transformed the way drains are repaired and maintained.
Most people don’t want to think about what’s going on with the pipelines under their houses. However, leaks, root development, corrosion, and deterioration are all possible outcomes of this vital plumbing system’s operation.
Because of their age, houses in well-established suburbs are more likely to have root ingress and corrosion. The sewer and stormwater of older houses were usually made of galvanised pipe or terracotta. Over time these materials have been superseded by PVC, which is a much superior product, however, many houses today still have these old pipe products under the ground. Galvanised pipe tends to rust over time and terracotta pipe allows easy access for tree roots to invade your sewer and stormwater lines, causing blockages.
Historically, If a breach occurred, the only way to entirely remove clogs and sewage backups was to replace the pipes that caused the problem. Nowadays,our no-dig pipe relining options allows you to avoid the costs of typical excavation and landscaping repair, saving you a ton of money.
Sewer Surgeon is a leading pipe relining specialist in Sydney, providing our customers solutions that are not only permanent, but also cost-effective.
A high-speed drain cleaning, utilising our industrial-strength jet blaster technology is the first step in the Pipe Relining procedure. Pipes are cleaned in preparation for relining during this step of the process. We don’t have to remove any existing pipes; instead, we can manufacture a seamless, robust pipe inside the boundaries of the broken pipe, saving time and money. There is no digging, no mess, just fully functional pipes once more.
Our epoxy lining starts off as a liquid that is applied to the inside of your pipes to protect them. After setting and hardening, the lining acts as a structurally sound new pipe that does not rely on the structural integrity of the old pipe for support. Root intrusion, corrosion, or any other common concerns that could cause problems in your old terracotta or galvanised plumbing system will be nearly impossible to penetrate with the new relined pipe installed.
Our trenchless plumbing approach is a tried and true answer to your plumbing problems. Avoid the trouble of landscape restorations, broken concrete, and high excavation fees by using this method. Renew, re-line, and restore the condition of your pipes. There is no need to dig. Call our Pipe Relining professionals right away!
A burst pipe generally refers to a leak, split, break, crack or fracture in your home water or gas distribution system. Sometimes this burst pipe is obvious, like a worn-out flexi hose. Other times the leak is on a copper line behind the wall, less obvious, causing damage and mould. In either case, Sewer Surgeon is the plumber you want when dealing with an emergency burst pipe.
Bust pipes should be found and repaired immediately as a leak left unattended will cause major damage to your property over time. This goes double for a gas leak, which left unattended, can lead to gas poisoning, fire or gas explosion.
Some burst pipes can be very hard to detect, but there are some tell tale signs that point towards a potential 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 many years of experience detecting gas or water leaks in Sydney. We use the latest tools, such as thermal imaging, electronic listening equipment, nitrogen gas testing equipment and gas smelling technology. Our leak detection processes are all very safe, so don’t worry, your house is in good hands.
Have you ever asked yourself why your taps constantly leak? The water that enters your home is under pressure, and this constant pressure may compromise the seals on your taps. If these seals are not air-tight, water will get through, causing dripping.
We can assist you in resolving any toilet, tap or shower leakage problem. Over the years, we have seen and fixed every leak imaginable and have yet to encounter a leak that we were unable to repair. If your toilet, tap or shower is leaking, our skilled plumbers will complete an valuation and provide the best solution to suit your needs.
In the most serious circumstances, where the shower, tap or toilet needs to be replaced, we will work with you to select a replacement that meets your budget and demands. As with all of our repairs, we only use professional-grade materials of the highest quality with a longstanding warranty. This ensures your replacement part is long lasting and as lovely as the day you received 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 is the terminology used by plumbers for services such as the installation of gas, gas leak repairs and gas detection services.
See below services 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.
- 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 become loose, corroded, or fail after several years of use. This is common in older homes and factories that have outdated gas systems and appliances that put a strain on the fittings. It is best to complete regular inspections and maintenance to avoid gas leaks. During these inspections, potential risks, damage, or repairs will be identified and fixed. This proactive measure could save lives and prevent major property damage.
Who knew that choosing the right water filter system for your property can be such a daunting process!
Did you know that there are multiple filtration systems to consider, with some being better at filtering out specific contaminants than others.Some systems are easier to use and maintain whilst others offer features that make them more effective.It’s important to know what to look for to select the right option for your home, but don’t worry, Sewer Surgeon has you covered.
The simplest and most basic water filtration system would use a carbon block filter, commonly used in water pitchers and faucet filters. This is the ideal setup for a single-stage water system to provide basic water filtration.
An upgrade to this would be a 2-stage filtration system that consists of a sediment filter and a carbon block filter to improve the system lifespan and effectiveness. The most ideal multi-stage water filtration system should consist of 3 filter stages to ensure you are drinking only the cleanest water.
Gutters and downpipes are one of the most essential parts of your home’s roofing system. They not only offer style and function, but also play an important role in protecting your property from rain and Sydney’s harsh weather.
Despite the very important role that they play, downpipes and gutters are often the most overlooked areas that require regular cleaning and maintenance. Leaks are largely caused by neglected, blocked,or damaged gutters. To ensure the proper upkeep of your home,It is ideal to check your gutters or have a gutter cleaning service scheduled 2-3 times a year to check for leaves, debris, pests and other foreign objects. If you start to experience any leaks from the roof, always check your gutters and downpipes before considering any roof restoration or a full roof replacement.
Most DIY solutions may work when it comes to cleaning your gutters but repairing a damaged gutter and downspout system is a totally different story. It is not easy to fix broken and cracked gutters, loose gutters or downpipes, rusted gutters with small holes or leaking gutter joints. Only a roofing professional knows how to do the job safely and efficiently. Plus, we can recommend you with the most cost-effective solutions that will help you save money.
