What Are the Causes of Blocked Drains and Cracked Pipes in St Ives?
Before any work begins, a small CCTV camera is placed into the cracked pipe to locate the suspected leak. This allows our technician to check the overall condition of your pipe, and to gauge whether relining your pipe is suitable to fix the damage.
More often than not, tree roots infiltrate piping as it is attracted to the water inside, ultimately causing a leak or worse, a partial blockage. Cutting the roots is the first step in solving this issue, then pipe relining can be used to seal the cracked pipes.
Many cracked pipes in St Ives and surrounds occur in these two types of pipes:
Traditional Terracotta or Clay Piping
Terracotta and clay pipe systems can be found all in the undergrounds of Sydney. St Ives has some remarkably old infrastructure, and piping technology has come a long way in the years. Such piping systems are held together by sand cement or rubber ring joints, which are both prone to weakening and causing leakages over time. Even the pipes themselves can crack or collapse, but the joint areas are usually the source of the problem.
Modern PVC Piping
Although uncommon, when installed improperly newer piping can eventuate to a cracked pipe. Any major ground movement or added weight above ground can also put further stress on these pipes, potentially leading to cracking and blockages.
