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.
No matter what type of pipes have been used in your sewer system, they are susceptible to erosion and/or blockages. Traditionally, when sewer systems have failed to operate efficiently, deep excavation has been required to repair the pipes. This is a costly, lengthy and destructive process, one which fills many with fear upon discovering that they need their sewer line repaired.
The old broken pipes can be repaired with little to no excavation at all. Since there is not much work involved, the total cost of the project will be considerably cheaper than traditional methods. Pipe relining is ideal for pipes with diameters as narrow as 40 mm to as long as 600 mm and can also run for 40-50 metres of pipe.

Stewart came today with the plan of trying to pull apart my hand basin to look for a lost ring. He spotted the obvious point that a ring would not have fitted down the plug. Then he rummaged through my rubbish bin and found the ring. I was absolutely delighted. I’d like to convey my appreciation. He went above and beyond the call of duty and I’m one very happy customer!
