3 Ways Pipe Relining Is Safer for the Environment

Pipe relining is the latest technology in repairs for difficult to access drainage pipes. It allows specialists to complete the repairs without the need for large scale excavations.

The benefits of pipe relining are numerous including speed of repair, reduced costs and repairing pipes that are inaccessible for excavation.

Additionally, pipe relining causes less environmental impact than traditional machine-excavated drain repairs.

3 Top Reasons Drainage Repairs with Pipe Relining are a better choice for the Environment

 

1. Reduce waste

Replacing a pipe can create a lot of waste. The process includes digging out the old, damaged pipe (which goes into landfill), installing the new PVC pipe and fittings and having them shipped to your location. So while it might seem quite simple, there’s a lot of resources going into replacing a pipe.

And we haven’t even gotten to the process of installing that pipe yet!

Pipe relining on the other hand uses the existing, damaged pipe as a skeleton to form a new, incredibly strong “lined” pipe.

This technology also lets us repair small amounts of damage quickly and easily.

When a drainage pipe has a small damaged section, traditionally you would need to replace a large section of the pipe and use repair joiners to repair such damage. But with pipe relining, we can use “patch” relining to fully repair the affected area without the need for a full replacement. So, there’s no need to throw away and replace pipes that only have a small crack!

 

2. Produce less emissions

    • Earthworking machinery creates a lot of emissions in their use and their transportation; pipe relining on the other hand doesn’t require heavy machinery, so we can repair your pipes with a small carbon footprint.
    • If you’re not digging up landscaping, pavers or driveways, you don’t need to replace them! So by using relining to repair the pipes under these structures, you won’t be creating emissions (or unnecessary waste) from the supplies or machinery used to dig up and replace these areas.
    • Pipe relining is fast. Many of the repairs are completed in one session, removing the need to drive to and from site multiple times to complete the job.
    • Relining materials are transported in much smaller containers than traditional full length pipes and their fittings- as a result, the carbon footprint is smaller.

 

3. Quickly prevents leaking of effluent & chemicals

Leaking sewer pipes pose a threat to the environment, as they allow the myriad chemicals (and effluent) found in modern sewage, to leech into our soil and waterways. Pipe relining is a solution that can fully repair these breaks quickly, preventing long-term damage to the local area and beyond.

  • “Exceptional Service”

    We had a particularly tricky job on a site with extremely difficult access. Tony and Niles quickly investigated and set forward to fix the issue. When plan A didn’t go exactly to plan Tony took full control and delivered a brilliant outcome. He arranged machine access through our fully landscaped property, went over and above to ensure the problem was fixed, and left our property almost as he found it. I am, and will continue to recommend Emu Plumbing for any re-line and general plumbing work. Their customer service second to none.

  • “Emu Plumbing used latest technology combined with their considerable experience to creatively problem solve”

    We cannot fault Tony and the team at Emu Plumbing. We had a very complex reline of a long combine sewer that had plagued us for decades. Emu Plumbing used latest technology combined with their considerable experience to creatively problem solve over four days of hard yakka. It was over 36 degrees! The team were professional, courteous and went the extra mile to do the job. After three days on site they left the place clean and tidy as if they were never there. We would recommend Emu Plumbing without reservation.

  • “Thank you so much for a hassle free pipe repair.”

    Emu plumbing were the most prompt and competitive in pricing for an under slab pipe repair; which a few other companies actually declined as it was quite a complicated job. Tony from Emu Plumbing attended site with a “can do” attitude and completed the job after a long and tough day. I returned home to find the work area spotless. Thoroughly recommend Emu plumbing. Thank you so much for a hassle free pipe repair.

  • “Tony from Emu plumbing restored my faith in people.”

    Tony from Emu plumbing restored my faith in people. I contacted him after being quoted $13K to fix our sewer line by another company. Tony spent time with me on the phone going through all possible options to address this issue more economically. He then offered to come and inspect the sewer line at no cost. It turned out we did not have to do anything. Tony has found in us a client for life instead of a quick buck. We would be recommending him to all our friends and family.

  • “Do yourself a favour and call them!”

    Tony and the team at Emu Plumbing are amazing! Emergency sewer issue – no problem. His team leader, Niles, turned up the next day. Friendly, approachable, great communication, knowledgeable and hard working. Caved in sewer line was jetted to clean & clear, patch inserted and cured, in the end a hard clean clear pipe – like new. Problem fixed same day, and at a very fair price. I can’t recommend this company enough. Do yourself a favour and call them!

    I called Emu Plumbing to fix a broken pipe that was causing my stormwater to flood my neighbours yard.
