Why Sydney Homeowners Are Turning to Pipe Relining?

Leaking pipes are a Sydney homeowner’s worst nightmare. You know a pipe is broken or a drain is blocked somewhere, thanks to that big puddle forming on the ground, but there’s no easy way to get at it. How can pipe relining help you in this situation?

Pipe relining

Pipe relining is possibly the greatest plumbing innovation since the Ancient Egyptians decided to switch from mud to copper in creating their pipes. You might think I’m exaggerating, but you won’t when you find out what pipe relining can save you.

Ever had to replace a pipe that is under concrete or in the middle of your lawn? The mess is spectacular, in the cringe-worthy sense. And that’s before you get to the price of getting your home back to the way it was. What about if your broken pipe is under pebble-dashed concrete? The cheapest option is to get the pipe fixed and then covered with standard concrete. Now you’ve got an ugly grey square in the middle of all those pebbles. Save yourself all this trouble by not digging up the pipe at all. And you don’t have to turn the water off permanently to your home either. Pipe relining can be done without digging up your whole yard or knocking through an entire bathroom wall.

And what about cost? When you fix a cracked pipe the old-fashioned way, you’ll be paying for a new pipe, as well as the cost of labour to get down to it and to fix up your place after the new pipe is in. Save yourself wads of cash by choosing pipe relining instead. Since your plumber doesn’t have to spend hours cutting through concrete or digging up your lawn, or even knocking through walls, you’re only paying for the pipe to be fixed, nothing else.

Since your plumber won’t be spending hours getting to the pipe, you’ll be saving yourself plenty of time. No longer will you need to take the day off work to help the plumber, now you can just take a few hours and the job will be all done like that. And it’s not just homeowners this saving of time benefits. Busy workplaces with hundreds of employees or customers coming through can minimise the impact to their daily work by reducing the amount of time areas have to be closed for plumbing repairs.

You can’t lose if you choose pipe relining the next time one of your pipes break. You’ll save money, time, and your home’s appearance.
