Vitrified clay pipes (VCP) were commonly used in many Australian households up until the early 1980s. VCP has become the go-to material because it is known for being resistant to many environmental factors and being earth-friendly, it is a great option for sewage systems. Despite its long life and resistance to sewage, it is still vulnerable to other factors that can cause damage. Tree roots, for instance, can cause cracks or break through the ceramic pipe, as can general wear and tear over time.
Three decades ago, the best way to address sewage pipe problems was through traditional methods. The problem with these methods was the inconvenience of excavation which disrupts properties, with the plumbing job taking days to finish. The good news however, is that newer technologies like pipe relining have been introduced.
This trenchless method of pipe repair, put simply, involves the insertion of a resin-saturated fibreglass or cloth liner to effectively create a pipe within the affected pipe, making it more resilient than before. This revolutionary process can be used with a wide variety of sewer pipes, ranging in size from 40mm up to 600mm.
Fortunately, there is a relatively new and far more practical pipe repair option available today – ‘pipe relining’. Using this method, there is no need for messy excavations. Pipe relining can be done within a day and performed on any type of sewer pipe ranging in length from 40mm to 600mm.
