New arrivals, face-lifts and a whole lot of relining.
From welcoming our newest and cutest team member to revamping our “most used” (never mind plenty relining in between), July has been a busy month all-round for the Sydney Relining team both on, and off the tools.
Off the tools
First and foremost, we’d like to welcome the newest member of the Sydney Relining team, Sam. He was born on 11/07/2021 weighing a healthy 8 pound 6 ounces. Sam has already expressed a keen interest in the relining industry and dreams about nothing else for around 20hrs per day…
When a newborn joins the family, it is not uncommon for others to get jealous. So, we decided that our recently “most used” vehicle deserved some attention in the form of a facelift. Our inversion truck has been fully restored inside with equipment upgrades across the board including new boiler, wet-out table, fridge and power facilities, whilst the exterior has been given a touch-up with a new wrap.
On the tools
We completed a wide variety of pipe and drain relining projects throughout July, keeping our team and tech on their toes to complete each project successfully. The use of our newly renovated inversion truck was more valuable than ever, with some long inversion relining projects completed, whilst our robotic cutter greased its wheels on more than one occasion.
To give you a taste of the variety we can not only execute but enjoy, we’ve detailed three specific projects below.
Wastewater was escaping a broken pipe and flooding surrounding buildings at this commercial premises. The team relined over 40m of 225mm pipe, including the milling and robotic cutting of numerous defects within the line. The work was completed within a single day before the rains came and caused even more damage.
Residential – Balgowlah Heights
Established, split level gardens provided a tricky, yet rewarding challenge for the team at this property in Balgowlah Heights. With multiple risers in a 35m section of 100mm pipe to navigate, the team managed to complete this pipe reline perfectly, saving the garden from destruction to the delight of the customer.
Unfortunately, a defected line caused by using non-compliant material (see our WaterMark accreditation article for an overview of this) has caused flooding in an underground car-park of this hospital and needed to be renewed. Due to the position of the line, access was difficult and relining the only sensible option. We relined using a patch liner over the defective 450mm FRC pipe, stopping the flooding.
