Understanding Storm Drain Relining

The storm drain relining process begins by inserting a resin-soaked liner into the damaged area of the pipe.

Once positioned, the liner is inflated and the resin cures, deftly forming a new pipe within your existing sewerage pipes, ensuring enhanced stormwater flow capacity and structural integrity. Storm drain relining utilises advanced technology to repair and restore underground stormwater systems without the significant excavation of traditional methods.

Pipe relining effectively rehabilitates stormwater systems with many benefits over conventional methods.

The trenchless technique of storm drain relining prevents the upheaval of landscapes, driveways, and infrastructure. Storm drain relining, a clean and excavation-free method, generates significantly less waste than traditional techniques. The relining fortifies underground assets with durable solutions, anticipated to last up to 50 years, surpassing the strength of traditional repairs.

Among the most common indicators that your drains may require relining are situations where pipes can suffer root intrusion, fractures, joint misalignment, and corrosion damage. A CCTV drain inspection can discern problems with your drain, and we always ensure to ascertain if trenchless relining is the optimal course of action. When it comes to drain system troubles, property owners in Sydney should contact a professional plumbing company to find the best way fix the issues through sewer pipe relining solutions.

When Storm Drain Relining is Necessary

Our professional relining services provide a minimal-digging solution, effectively preserving ageing underground infrastructure. In regions such as the Gold Coast, where properties often have aged cast iron drainage systems at their lifecycle’s end, storm drain relining is particularly beneficial.

When it comes to restoring stormwater drains, relining no dig proves advantageous, bypassing the traditional need to dig up your garden and causing disruption, especially when such operations are highly inconvenient or impossible. Our state-of-the-art relining system is adept at navigating around bends, driveways, gardens, and built structures, presenting a superior alternative to traditional methods.

At our company, we understand the significance of leaving the surrounding terrain intact when getting pipes relined during the stormwater sewer process. The alternative of digging trenches risks further weakening pipes through vibration, ground shift and runoff erosion. Relined pipes are also better equipped to withstand these environmental stresses.

Contact a professional plumbing company to inspect your sewer stormwater system for potential needs of sewer relining. If deterioration such as cracks, fractures and root ingress are identified in your sewer line, Relining can be the most effective remedy for your plumbing challenges.

Identifying Issues with Your Storm Drains

There are several signs that can indicate your storm drains may require relining:

  • Blockages and flooding: If blocked drains become obstructed with debris, silt, or invasions like tree roots, water can back up and flood areas around your property during heavy rain.
  • Sinkholes and ground subsidence: Damaged stormwater sewer drains can cause severe erosion of the surrounding soil, which could eventually damage your property via the emergence of dangerous sinkholes.
  • Visible pipe damage: Cracks, fractures, misaligned joints and holes may be visible on the exterior of above-ground downpipes.
  • Bad odours: Sewage smells after rain can suggest breaks in your sewer pipes are allowing contaminant infiltration.
  • CCTV findings: A drain camera inspection may reveal corrosion, cracks, blockages and root intrusion necessitating relining.

Neglecting deteriorating sewer lines risks home damage from flooding, erosion, and subsidence. The longer pipe repairs are deferred, the more disruptive and costly they become due to exponential failure rates.

We provide expert pipe relining services for recurring drainage issues and suspected underground pipe deterioration.

Benefits of Trenchless Storm Drain Repair

Trenchless stormwater pipe relining offers numerous advantages over traditional dig and replace pipe repair methods, including:

  • Less disruption and damage to landscapes, driveways and infrastructure
  • Our 'no-dig, no-mess’ approach ensures rapid completion and reduced noise pollution.
  • Enhanced safety - avoids open excavations
  • Structural integrity preserved without need to disturb surrounding soil
  • More cost-effective, with savings up to 60% compared to traditional pipe replacement

Our advocacy for a no-excavation approach stems from its minimally disruptive nature, negating the need for jackhammers and earthmoving equipment. The compact equipment used in our process guarantees that the site remains clean and tidy throughout the repair work. This allows storm drain repairs to proceed with minimal impact on regular property access and use.

Typically, the efficient relining process is completed within one to two days. This cost-effective method spares you the hassle of weeks-long digging, installations, and restorations.

The Storm Drain Relining Process

Inspection and Diagnosis

To achieve optimal outcomes in storm drain relining, a comprehensive CCTV pipe inspection is conducted using the latest camera technology for precise diagnostics. The CCTV footage gathered allows our technicians to assess the overall condition and address all your concerns by pinpointing any damage needing repair.

Identified issues that may require relining include broken or leaking sections, fractures, root infiltration, misaligned joints, corrosion, and silt or debris blockages. The location and severity of damage within your pipeline guide our technicians to shape the best solution tailored for each drain relining project.

Pipe Cleaning and Preparation

Before relining occurs, drain clearing and the existing storm drain undergo comprehensive clearing using high-pressure water jetting. With the effective liner inserted into your cleared conduit, this ensures seamless resin adhesion and optimal preparation of pipe surfaces.

Once the water pipe is cleaned, its dimensions are meticulously measured. These dimensions determine the thickness and the specific length of pipe that the custom-fitted epoxy liner will be tailored to before insertion.

Epoxy Resin Installation

A critical stage of the relining process is coating the existing pipe with an epoxy resin liner. Once our technicians have got the job done of thoroughly saturating an inner felt layer, the liner is inserted seamlessly into the pipe for curing.

After hardening, the relining system forms a smooth, seamless, and corrosion-resistant 'pipe within a pipe’ that perfectly matches your pipeline’s interior walls. The robust epoxy liner restores structural stability and flow capacity to your water system.

Our long-term guarantees are backed by the 50+ year lifespan of the epoxy materials we use. Reach out to us to explore our pipe relining solutions, and to maintain your stormwater network with our complete no-dig services.
