NO DIG PIPE RELINING

Do you need to fix a broken pipe but upon investigation you find that the pipe is deeply buried or not easily accessible? Whether its buried deep in a building’s walls, or under dirt, concrete, or public land or infrastructure, you are going to need excavation. Excavation is always the most expensive option but in many cases it is just completely infeasible. Well we have the technology to help you solve the problem.

When it comes to saving and relining pipes without digging or destruction, property and building owners in Melbourne depend on us. It’s the ultimate in sewer, drain and stormwater pipe rehabilitation, we place a new pipe inside the old one’s cavity through a process called Cured-in-Place-Pipe inversion relining. By utilising the world’s leading pipelining technology, backed by years of local research and development, as well as our experienced relining tradesmen, we are able to replace, patch and repair underground and unaccessible pipes. The technology works by pushing a liner through the existing pipe cavity that has been impregnated with a proprietary epoxy lining. As it winds through the pipe, it is unrolled to the size and shape of the inside of the cavity, and is able to provide a seamless new pipe within the old one, even through different diameters, and around multiple 90 degree bends. The epoxy is then cured in place to form a hard shell, and leave behind a new pipe that is even stronger than a new PVC pipe would be.

The up-front fixed price includes absolutely everything, and even if the job ends up taking longer than expected, we will honour our fixed price, so that there will be no surprises when it comes to settling the bill.

Process & Technology

We use our specialised equipment to search and locate the cause of your blockage and clear the problem for you. Here at 24 Hour Emergency Plumber Melbourne we use the following specialised technologies to clear your blocked drain and provide a complete solution to any situation no matter how complex the drainage system and its individual set of requirements:
CCTV camera and services
Pipe locating equipment
Electric eel
High pressure water jetter
Hot water jetter for grease traps
Rootx and Vaporooter treatments (tree root inhibitors)

CCTV CAMERA

Pipe inspection cameras are part of our standard tool kit; they enable us to pinpoint where exactly in the pipe the problem is and what is the cause. These pipe inspection cctv cameras are fed down your sewer or stormwater drain pipe and are controlled remotely by our plumbers using the video feedback from the camera and an advanced control system. The drain camera will clearly identify any breakages in the pipe and how they occurred. We find roots commonly penetrate all types of pipes. Collapsed pipes, misaligned pipes and foreign objects in the drain are all other problems we identify when we use the camera.

PIPE LOCATOR

Should excavation be considered for a repair or replacement job, we use a pipe locator alongside the CCTV camera to locate the exact point of blockage and provide you with alternatives to correct the situation before excavating.

ELECTRIC EEL

Our Melbourne plumbers are highly experienced in investigating and clearing your blocked drains using an electric eel. This process involves feeding a metal cable into the storm water line and / or sewer. This cable then rotates to cut root growth and release the debris that was blocking the line.
Electric drain machines or electric eels are carried in each of our vans. These are more commonly used machines for clearing a toilet blockage or blocked sewer drains. It involves a steel flexible rod with a cutter on the end run by an electric motor that cuts & removes tree roots or any other obstacle in the drain. One of the downfalls with these machines is they do not have the length of rods to reach blockages that exceed 30m. This is where hydro-jets are ideal as they have double the reach of electric machines. Electric eels are far better at cutting out larger tree roots as they have the strength of a motor pushing a cable with a sharp cutter on it, which often easily cuts and removes large roots.

HIGH PRESSURE WATER JET CLEANER

Our hydro jetters pump high pressure water (5000 psi) out of the end of a small nozzle attached to a hose that is placed into the drain and self propels itself through the pipe cleaning any obstacles such as roots that are in its way. Using various different cutting heads, the operator can utilise the jet to break down roots, debris, grease and sludge. This is then flushed out of the line, making it completely clear. Although the high pressure water jet and electric eel are highly effective methods of pipe clearing, neither can completely guarantee removal of the root growth permanently. This is because breakages in your pipes may allow further root growth. These breakages can only be detected using a CCTV camera (drain camera). Using the CCTV camera we can determine precisely what has caused your blockage.

Jetters are well suited to clear sewer and stormwater drains, and any pipe blockage caused from chemical deposit. We use jetters regularly on commercial kitchen sinks, drains and grease traps, as the hydro-jet easily cuts through the grease and fats to allow the pipe to flow freely again.

TREE ROOTS

Trees seek out moisture to sustain and grow. Inside sewer drains where there may be leaks or cracks, roots from trees will find any break in your pipes and can force their way into the smallest cracks. Tree roots thrive on the humidity and warmth of pipe lines, making your pipes a great place for nearby trees. And once they have found a source of water in your pipe, they will continue to expand inside the pipe, until the pipe breaks apart.

24 Hour Emergency Plumber Melbourne offer Rootx and Vaporooter treatment services that are the most effective way to prevent future tree root growth in drains and pipes. These treatments are so effective they are also used to prevent trees roots growing underneath driveways and building foundations.
