Pipes are checked via CCTV
To determine exactly what we need to do to fix them.
Pipes are cleaned
High pressure water is jetted through the pipes. It may cause some gurgling or splashing from your toilet. We therefore advise to keep the toilet lid down. If water does spurt out of the toilet, please contact the Interflow Manager immediately.
Pipes are relined
A plastic strip is wound into the old pipe by a machine to form a new pipe.
New pipe is connected
Lateral lines are reconnected to the new pipe and junctions are sealed to protect the new pipe. This opens the connection to provide access to the system.
Pipes are checked
This ensures that the job has been done properly. If we find any issues we'll come back and fix it. We may need to return to the area to repeat the above steps.
Boundary trap investigations and installations
Boundary traps are found a the point of connection to the central wastewater system and stop gases from entering private sewers. We may need to enter the boundaries of your property to complete this work. Installation involves small-scale excavation and we will reinstate any private property we disturb during this process.
