Underground Earthenware Pipes Repair Maroubra – Pipe Reline

Case Study – Pipe Relining Maroubra

If you’re experiencing a severe backup in your toilet, it is a sure sign that your sewer line could be compromised. If tree roots have damaged the pipes beneath the ground, you risk severe damage to your home and expensive renovations to get things back to normal. Some plumbing companies will tell you that costly excavations are the only solution, but, as one homeowner in Maroubra in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs found out, DrainWorks was able to use some ingenious solutions to repair their pipes and save them time, unsightly backyard scars, and thousands of dollars.

The Problem

DrainWorks were called to a home experiencing a blocked drain. We didn’t know what to expect upon the first arrival, and as we pulled up, we were confronted with a common issue in the Sydney Area: an old home with old pipes. The 1960’s era home was equipped with earthenware pipes, a material that’s notoriously difficult to work on. This was going to take a bit of elbow grease…

To make matters worse, tree roots had seeped into a junction on the side of the house, causing a major blockage and backup in the bathroom toilet.

Since the pipes were located underground, a common solution would be to dig and repair; however, not only does that take time and a lot of money, it leaves unsightly marks in the backyard.

DrainWorks, not to be discouraged, decided to use a bit of ingenuity to save the homeowner a great deal of money and get the job done in just a few hours. The best part? Our non-invasive solution meant nobody could tell we had been there.

The Solution – No Dig Pipe Reline

After clearing out the pipe with a high-pressure water jetter and sending a CCTV camera down the hatch (who said plumbing wasn’t high-tech?), we concluded that a satellite junction was the best solution.

A satellite junction is simply a sleeve that goes inside the existing junction. This repair patch would accomplish all of the same goals as excavation and repair at a fraction of the cost. With customer approval, we were ready to get to work clearing the junction of tree roots.

The Tools

We were able to carry out this solution with a few simple tools:

  • Epoxy Resin: Epoxy resin is a powerful adhesive that allows for fast and durable pipe patches.
  • Sewer Lining: Our durable felt sewer liner allows us to essentially create a new pipe inside of an old host pipe, an excellent solution when working with outdated materials (like clay pipes).
  • Pipe Bladder: A plumbing bladder works just like the one in your body. It fills up with liquid and then deflates. With the liner in place and resin set to rock hard, we filled the bladder and let it sit for about two hours to set the liner in place.

The new junction prevented any further root damage and stabilized any possible cracking or future pipe damage. Expensive excavation work looked like the only solution—that is until DrainWorks were called to the scene. Pipe relining could save homeowners thousands of dollars in plumbing work and repairs. This user-friendly, non-invasive procedure leaves no sign of any work having been carried out and the job was finished in about four hours.

Just another job well done that saved the customer money, time, and property damage. If your back is against the wall and you’re facing a big plumbing bill in Maroubra, make sure to talk to DrainWorks first. You could be paying way more than you have to.
