Sewer Pipe Repairs Melbourne

Sewer Pipe Repairs Melbourne

Sewer pipe repairs in Melbourne differ from the repair of regular pipes. This is because of the nature of the material that flows through sewer pipes, which is known as blackwater. The other types of water that flow through pipes are greywater (from showers, washing machines, etc) and drinking water. There are different rules and regulations surrounding the treatment of each system.

Mr Pipe Relining is familiar with all of the relevant codes governing the repairs of the pipes in Melbourne. We have also worked on a number of sewer pipe reline projects including the Maroondah Sewer Reline and other commercial relining projects that involved the most direct resolution to the exact problem.

While relining is usually the recommended option, in some instances, it is simply not enough. The sewer pipe may need to be replaced with strong material. This occurs when a pipe is really damaged or misplaced.

In most circumstances, the sewer pipe can be relined instead of replaced. But whatever kind of repair is needed, we will let you know with an advanced CCTV scan to outline the problem areas. We can provide innovative solutions to very niche circumstances, and have done so in the past.

Who is responsible for a broken/blocked sewer line?

If it is on your property, then it is entirely your responsibility to get it repaired. However, the local council or wastewater authority is responsible for breaks/blockages on the main sewer line and for pipes and drains leading away from the property. They also cover stormwater pipe repairs away from the property.

What legislation governs sewer repairs in Melbourne?

The standard for the governance of sewer pipe repairs in Melbourne is known as the AS/NZS 3500 National Plumbing and Drainage Code. Professional plumbers need to understand this standard so they can take the necessary precautions. Part 4 of the 2018 Plumbing Regulations also lays down a framework in relation to wastewater and drainage around a given property.

What authority governs these repairs in Melbourne?

The Victoria Building Authority (‘VBA’) is responsible for enforcing the standards in relation to this type of repairs in Melbourne. They distribute licences to plumbers who have the qualifications and also revoke this licence if standards have not been met. The VBA governs multiple areas of construction in Victoria, not just plumbing. All our technicians have the relevant licencing from the VBA and are fully insured in line with state law.

What are my options if I need this type of repair?

There are two options when it comes to repairing a broken or leaking sewer pipe. The first is known as trenchless pipe relining. It is cheaper, easier, and more direct than the second option, known as pipe replacement. With pipe relining, there is no need to dig a trench and replace the pipe. A tube is inserted into the existing pipe and this tube is inflated so that it sticks to the interior of the pipe, forming a second interior layer. The second option is to replace the pipe itself using a trench. This is a costly and time consuming process, but might be necessary for certain instances.

What is the best material to use for sewer pipes?

Until the 20th century, terra cotta clay pipes were the main sewer pipe material in urban environments. Steel, concrete, and cast iron featured heavily afterwards. However, plastic composites are now the most common material for sewer lines, for a myriad of different reasons. Plastics such as PVC and ABS are lightweight, easy to cut, and affordable. Copper is also often used but is being displaced with plastics. Sewer pipes are often made of the same materials as main water pipes. The difference lies in their diameter and how they are installed. They need to be wider so debris cannot pool and need to accommodate larger volumes of fluids.

There is more to pipes and repairs than meets the eye! Somebody has to give the area serious thought and lay down an entire system, so they can last as long as possible. If not, experts are needed to come in and repair the damage.
