Introduction To Relined Pipe Inspections

Pipe relining is an innovative method that renews your drain and sewer pipes without the need for traditional pipe replacement. A flexible epoxy resin liner creates a new internal surface within your existing pipes, restoring their function.

While pipe relining eliminates the need for digging or pipe removal, regular inspections are critical to prevent future costly repairs. Regular inspections enable early detection of pipe issues, preventing costly damage and extending the lifespan of your relined pipes.

Our CCTV drain inspection process is minimally invasive yet thorough, checking for issues such as compromised liner seals, misaligned pipes, and tree root intrusions, allowing us to repair any damaged sections and ensure the longevity of your relined pipes.

Routine camera inspections help to identify potential problems in your new pipe lining’s condition transparently, such as a broken pipe, taking the guesswork out of understanding its integrity. Our licensed plumbers in Sydney advise an inspection of your relined pipes every 2-5 years to maintain them in top condition.

Recommended Frequency For Inspecting Relined Pipes

This guideline ensures proactive monitoring, allowing for prompt resolution of issues before they lead to significant damage.

Frequency of inspections for relined drains should take into account factors such as the pipe’s age, material, usage patterns, and environmental factors affecting your plumbing system. Older or heavily-used pipes may require more frequent inspections, whereas lightly-used, newer pipes could be checked less often, typically every five years.

In areas with acidic soil conditions, such as Hunters Hill, which can hasten pipe wear, inspecting every three years is prudent for early detection of problems like liner breaches or root intrusions.

We specialise in drain inspection cameras offering minimal disruption, where pipes can be assessed without the need for excavation. After assessing your lines, we’ll lay out an optimal ongoing inspection schedule in line with the pipe relining process to maximise your investment.

What To Look For During An Inspection

During inspections of relined pipes, be vigilant for common indications of potentially blocked drains:

  • Foul sewage odours emanating from your drains
  • Diminished water pressure or gurgling noises, potentially hindering hot water delivery
  • Delayed drainage, signalling a potential blockage
  • Excess water gathering near your drains
  • Indications of pipe damage, such as cracks or leaks
  • Visible signs of cracked broken pipes along joints or seals
  • Misaligned pipe sections
  • Corrosion, holes or damage spots in liner

Our Hunters Hill plumbers utilise state-of-the-art CCTV drain cameras to identify these and other sewer pipe issues. We meticulously examine the interior of your pipes to identify vulnerabilities such as damage or blockages, assess the health of your sewer system, and provide tailored solutions to restore functionality.

If you observe any worrisome symptoms, reach out to our skilled plumbers for a prompt drain inspection. Early detection of issues can prevent the future need for more extensive pipe repairs.
