As many aspects of life ebbed and flowed throughout April, due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, easter & school holidays, the Sydney Relining team have been busier than ever, relining over 120m of pipe and drain across Sydney.
Our team completed some interesting projects, including a tricky job in Croydon Park requiring over 20 junctions to be relined and a 20m complete inversion reline in Cremorne.
Here are some of our highlights.
This property in Cremorne required over 20m of pipe relining. Using inversion technology from industry leaders EVOLiNE and Boldan, the team completed the project quickly and efficiently.
With over 20 junctions on the stack branches to navigate, this project was far from straight forward. Working together, the team navigated each intersection using CCTV technology before creating a custom section for each junction.
This huge project took the team over a week to complete. Tenants were subjected to minimal disruptions as all stack lines were temporarily re-diverted while installations took place.
Tree roots had affected a large area of the sewer system at the back of the property, including the main bathroom. Before relining could commence, high-pressure jetting was used to clear the blockage and disperse the tree roots.
Once the drain had been cleared, over 15m of pipe needed to be relined. Including multiple bends, along with disjointed and broken pipes, due to the tree root damage. The team had to navigate multiple changes in diameter, floor-wastes and vertical risers.
Once completed, the team left with a grateful customer, who was delighted to have their plumbing back up and running.
With a PVC junction cracked and leaking underneath the bathroom, a relining solution allowed the issue to be addressed without ripping up the bathroom tiles and causing costly disruption for the owners.
On further inspection, cracks had started to appear in additional PVC bends due to ground movement, which the team relined to prevent tree roots from entering the pipe.
With minimal disruption, the job was completed quickly to the delight of the owners.
