Pipe Relining Lismore


We Are Your Pipe Relining specialists in Lismore

Wandering roots from trees in the yard can often cause damage to your pipes and plumbing. While many people refrain from calling a plumber to fix the problem because of the possibility of having their yards ripped up, there’s actually a much simpler and cost-effective technique that could fix the root of the problem.

This solution offered by O’Brien Electrical and Plumbing Lismore is called pipe relining.

Our team uses the latest pipe relining technology to locate and fix your drain issues quickly and effectively. This involves repairing pipes from the inside – meaning there’s no need to dig up the damaged pipe and replace it.

O’Brien Electrical and Plumbing Lismore’s technology is great for those who want to avoid the mess and expensive cost of traditional fixture solutions for damaged pipes located beneath your house, pool or concrete.

Damaged drain and sewer pipes are not only inconvenient for homeowners, but they can also cause real problems for your property and yard if not fixed properly. The two most common reasons for pipe relining are old underground pipes wearing out and broken drainpipes from intruding tree roots.

This means you can avoid an expensive and messy excavation process if you need drain or sewer pipes repaired – giving you more cost-effective and convenient solutions for troublesome pipes, and results in significantly fewer negative environmental impacts.

Blueline® Technology

Blueline® is a joint-free pipe repair that can act as a barrier between water and pipe walls, solving leaks efficiently without damage or digging into the landscape or disrupting buildings.

It’s perfect if your business needs to:

  • Stop leaks, blockages, water damage and calcium build-up while also preventing root intrusion
  • Increase water flow
  • Have a solution that can be used with metal, iron, steel, clay, concrete, PVC and fibreglass piping
  • Find an alternative to drain replacement
  • Repair pipes within buildings and in underground and under-building foundations
  • Minimise digging and destruction to your business’ building or landscape
  • Built to last with a 10-year installation guarantee and a manufacturer’s warranty of 50 years*

How does the Blueline® system work?

Before any relining takes place, the drains must first be inspected and surveyed. We use a pipe camera to identify and locate the cause of the problem. The drain is then cleared using a high-pressure water jet – once the blockage is cleared, the pipe is then prepared for the liner installation.

Our liner is custom made from fabric that is impregnated with specially formulated two-part epoxy resin that sets hard, becoming a structural repair, in a matter of hours allowing minimal disruption and inconvenience.

Once the liner is prepared, it will be inserted through an opening in the drain. It is positioned in place with a camera and inflated, forcing the liner to take the shape of the pipe filling voids or cracks and lining over any damaged section. After the curing period, the internal bladder of the liner is removed, completing the process and making the drain ready for immediate use.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does pipe relining differ from traditional pipe repair methods?

Pipe relining is a modern technique for repairing damaged pipes from the inside. Unlike traditional methods that often require digging up the old pipe, pipe relining involves inserting a flexible liner coated with a special resin into the existing pipe. This liner is then inflated. It bonds to the pipe’s interior and hardens to form a new, durable inner layer. This method is less invasive, quicker and often more cost-effective than traditional pipe replacement.

How long can I expect a relined pipe to last?

At O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore, we use Nuflow® technology to ensure your relined pipes are not just a temporary fix but a durable, long-term solution. This advanced method comes with a 10-year installation guarantee, providing you with a decade of assurance in the reliability of the work. Moreover, it also includes a substantial 50-year manufacturer warranty on the materials used. This impressive warranty period reflects confidence in the quality and durability of the materials and techniques employed in the pipe relining process.

What environmental advantages does pipe relining offer?

Pipe relining is a more sustainable option compared to traditional pipe repair methods. It reduces the need for extensive excavation, which means less disruption to the landscape and local ecosystems. This approach minimises soil disturbance, reduces the carbon footprint associated with heavy construction equipment and conserves resources by rehabilitating existing pipes rather than manufacturing new ones.

Is pipe relining suitable for complex plumbing systems in commercial properties?

Yes, pipe relining is adaptable and can be effectively used in complex plumbing systems typical of commercial properties. It’s ideal for repairing pipes located in hard-to-reach areas, under concrete slabs or within building structures, where traditional repair methods would be disruptive and costly.

What is the process of pipe relining?

The pipe relining process begins with a thorough inspection of the damaged pipe, usually using a camera. Once the problem area is identified, the pipe is cleaned, typically with a high-pressure water jet. The custom-made liner is then inserted into the pipe and positioned accurately. It’s inflated to mould to the pipe’s shape, filling any voids or cracks. After the resin cures and hardens, the internal bladder is removed, leaving a new pipe within the old one.

How does pipe relining differ from traditional pipe replacement in terms of cost?

Pipe relining is often more cost-effective than full pipe replacement, especially when considering indirect costs. Traditional replacement involves excavation, which can lead to additional expenses like landscape restoration and driveway repair. Pipe relining eliminates most of these additional costs, making it a budget-friendly option.

Are there any specific conditions where pipe relining might not be advisable?

While pipe relining is versatile, there are situations where it might not be the best solution. For example, pipes that have collapsed completely or have severe structural damage may not be suitable for relining. Additionally, pipes with sharp bends or junctions might pose challenges. A thorough inspection by a professional is essential to determine the viability of relining in each specific case.

What is the typical timeframe for completing a pipe relining project?

The typical timeframe for a pipe relining project varies, influenced by factors such as the size and length of the pipes, ease of access, the current condition of the pipes, the complexity of the job and the specific relining technology used. However, it is often much faster than traditional methods. For a precise estimate tailored to your specific needs, please contact our team.

How do I know if pipe relining is the right choice for my property?

The best way to determine if pipe relining is suitable for your property is to consult with our team at O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore. We can conduct a detailed inspection of your plumbing system, assess the extent of the damage and recommend the most effective repair method. Our team will guide you in making an informed decision about the best approach for your specific situation.
