Most plumbing pipe repairs can be undertaken quickly & efficiently with no mess or excavation just peace of mind. This includes no removal of trees or landscaping which is a bonus for most Sydney homeowners. Pipe relining is also more environmentally friendly as there is no waste compared to conventional pipe replacement as there is no need to dig up the old pipe under the driveway or path.

If you would like to get a quick price estimate to see if pipe relining is in your budget, fill out the appropriate information in our price estimator. Always keep in mind that the upfront costs will be higher than clearing a blocked drain, but this is a long term, permanent solution. Clearing a blocked drain is only a temporary fix.

Whilst every project is different, with a few key pieces of information, you can generate a quick estimate to get an idea of what a relining solution is likely to cost.

It’s a question we get asked on the daily: “Does my homeowner’s insurance cover sewer line?” 

Firstly, let us say that before you go searching online for what your homeowner’s insurance covers when it comes to plumbing, check-in first with your existing insurance provider. Read thoroughly through the fine print to get an idea of what is covered and what is not covered in your existing homeowner’s insurance policy related to plumbing.

Place a call to your provider if you’re finding it hard to work your way through the policy conditions.

Each insurer is slightly different, and it depends on what type of cover or extras you have nominated at the beginning of your policy commencing with the provider.

As you experience a plumbing problem like a blocked drain, blocked toilet or flooding resulting from a burst pipe or leak somewhere, you might not realize the root cause of the problem. However, once a professional plumber investigates the issue, more problems may arise, like a tree root infiltration, sewer main line blockages or collapsed pipes that require relining or replacement. 

This is when you would like to know whether or not your homeowner’s insurance policy covers you.

While pipe relining is better than replacement in most circumstances, if the damage to your pipes is significant, pipe relining may not be sufficient. Therefore, it’s essential to have a professional assess the damage to determine whether pipe relining is possible. if not, you’ll need pipe replacement.

To help indicate cost. We have found that most relining jobs are generally 20% cheaper than what it would cost to excavate and replace the drain. The benefit of relining is that all work, in most cases, gets completed on the same day, and there is no mess or disruption to your property.

If you’re looking for a quote to reline your pipes or your sewer line and you’re concerned that you have a ‘harder’ job site for whatever reason, please reach out and talk with our team at Proximity Plumbing today. We can give you an obligation free quote and take you through the process, explaining the specifics of your property’s pipe relining quote so you understand every element of the quote and can make an informed decision.

Another element that can affect the final cost of your pipe relining is the number of bends within the piece of pipe being relined and the number of junctions within the pipe.

A huge advantage of pipe relining is that the intersections and access points are mostly undisturbed. Because pipe relining creates a ‘pipe within a pipe’ the process uses the infrastructure you already have in place (so the disruption to your system and your property is minimal.

Because of the CCTV footage we use with inspecting your pipes before any relining service, our team will have a visual of exactly where the bends and junctions occur along your pipeline and will be able to include any work that’s needed to reinstate junctions and inspection points within the initial quote. Each junction along the line is inspected before we start any work. Once the pipe is relined, one of our senior professional plumbers will use a special robotic cutting machine to reinstate the junctions and access points. So the time, equipment and labour needed to complete the pipe relining job with junction cuts is something that can contribute to the final cost.

The dried Brawoliner resin and lining have been certified to be environmentally friendly by the German Institute for the Environment and Hygiene making it perfect for sensitive areas such as near streams and rivers. The specially designed lining product can be hot cured and set in place in as little as 2 to 3 hours.

Brawoliner is particularly good around waterways, streams, and important ecosystems as there is no need to dig up the pipework – reducing the impact on these ecosystems. The flora and fauna at the site of the reline will not experience a change in their environment. The dig and replace solutions are invasive and will disrupt ecosystems for days, months or even years.
