Some of the benefits:

  • Improved flow rate

  • Structurally sound pipes

  • No groundwater contamination

  • No tree root invasion

Pipe Patching

Sometimes, your pipe may be damaged but not broken, and patching may be more appropriate than relining. Again, we can do this without any excavation or major disruption and install a patch that will last for many years.

To do this, our experts will first need to find the location of the hole using an underground camera. Once we have inspected the damage and agreed that a patch is the right solution, we will remotely clean the area before affixing a fibreglass patch coated with epoxy resin. This will all be held in place by an inflatable bladder, which we will deploy by sending compressed air down a tube. This will inflate the patch and allow the resin to cure so the fibreglass becomes hard and resilient.

Some of the benefits:

  • Structurally sound pipes

  • No groundwater contamination

  • No tree root invasion

Junction Patching

Some of the benefits:

  • Custom-fit and tight-fitting

  • Tried and tested epoxy resin:

    • optimum bonding with existing pipes
    • no restriction to flows
    • appropriate mechanical properties
    • high durability against chemicals
  • Using steam to speed up the cure process

Junction Patching

If it’s been particularly dry or wet in your location in the Northern Beaches, the earth beneath your feet may have shifted. This is quite natural, but when it does so, it can cause two sections of pipe to come apart. Occasionally, this problem may also be due to inferior bonding materials at the point where the pipes join, but in any case, we will reconnect the junction and install a special patch as needed. To begin the process, we will deploy a CCTV camera to the worksite, inspect the area and get to work to fix the two sections of pipe back together.

CCTV Inspection | Pipe Relining

A CCTV drain survey can detect:

  • Cracked or broken pipes

  • Pipe or sewer collapses

  • Damage from nesting rodents or other animals

  • Surface damage, including jetting or delaminating damage

  • Pipe damage by root growth

  • Damaged chambers and gullies

  • Issues with badly constructed drainage systems

CCTV Drain Inspections

Ruttley Relining has invested in tiny but efficient CCTV drain cameras that we can feed into your underground pipes from afar. This type of technology has been a real game-changer in recent years and allows us to inspect areas that would otherwise have been inaccessible.

When the camera gets to the problem location, it may find a cracked or broken pipe that has allowed tree roots to enter. When these roots grow further into the pipe, they can accumulate a lot of debris, while pests can also get in and try to set up a new home.

No matter what the cause of the issue, we will reveal all with our CCTV equipment and our experts can then get to work to restore normal service at your Northern Beaches home.

Robotic Cutting

Some of the benefits:

  • Excellent manoeuvrability through 90-degree bends

  • Precision cutting in pipes from 50mm to 250mm in diameter

  • Integrated colour camera with air and water cleaning

Robotic Cutting

If our CCTV camera does encounter tree roots, we will need to remove them before we can properly repair the pipe. To do this, Ruttley Relining has industrial strength cutting equipment, so we can get rid of tree roots and other stubborn obstacles as well.

Sometimes, we need to restore the smooth inner surface of the pipe so that it doesn’t interfere with the proper flow. We can do this all remotely with our robotic equipment. This equipment has an integrated colour camera set up and lighting as well, so we can see everything with clarity as we work.

Ruttley Relining Tools of Trade_ High-Pressure Water Jet Cleaning

Some benefits of HPWC:

  • Descaling pipes

  • Tank cleaning

  • Surface preparation

  • Descaling drains and sewers

  • Floor preparation

High-Pressure Water Cleaning

Everyday materials can flow through an underground water pipe and may accumulate with time around bends or junctions. When this happens, this material can solidify and be rather difficult to remove. For this particular problem, we will use high-pressure water cleaning jets that are very good at getting rid of materials such as rust, resin, chemicals, concrete or rubber. These jets will blast away any blockages quickly and, once again, from afar.

What Our Client Say About Us

I cannot recommend this company highly enough. I moved into my house about 18 months ago and, one by one, a series of plumbing problems arose. I wrote a review earlier this year when Ruttley resolved the first issue - and they were fantastic then. When another, unrelated, problem arose, I did not hesitate to contact them again. This one was far trickier, with a solution that was not immediately apparent. I was so impressed with the way in which they persevered to get to the root of the problem and ultimately fix it. It took a couple of months, and trying different solutions, until they ultimately came up with the solution. The problem was due to original plumbing installation, and rather than incur the cost of ripping it out and starting again, the guys just thought and thought about it until a fix was sorted. At all times they listened to me, were courteous and punctual, trustworthy and good to have around. Dont look anywhere else!

In the blocked drain emergency, I called other companies saying to offer 24 hour service and was refused to come at night. Ruttley took the job and sent the guy to come who is so professional and has done very good and quick job. I definitely will put Ruttley in my priority in the future. Thanks.

Ruttley Services went over an above for us. Was extremely refreshing to have such a professional team with a can do attitude solving our plumbing issues. Ruttley completed major relining work for us solving our tree root and deteriorating ceramic pipe issues without any excavation. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We had a very positive experience with the Ruttley team. They were true to their quote and did a very good job. They were a super respectful team and communicated really well what needed to be done. The team’s attention to detail was also wonderful.We are very grateful for the work the team has done and for the way in which it was carried out. Thank you!

The plumber arrived at the scheduled time and after ascertaining the work required gave an immediate quote. After performing the work he checked the hot water tank and recommended replacing the pressure release valve because it was 10 years old and had a life expectancy of only about 5 years and failure could lead to serious consequences. This was agreed to. The work performed was done to my complete satisfaction, I appreciated being warned about the hot water valve needing replacement, and the plumber himself was most cordial and helpful. This is my second very satisfactory experience with Ruttley and I would definitely use them again.

Ruttley Plumbing are excellent. I was faced with a flood under our house from storm water drain problems - Chris arrived at 7am as per booking, Chris listened to the problem and understood quickly what the issue was and went about fixing it. Chris advised what the cost was first (watch other companies who don't do this and you may be caught) ... we had had another Plumbing company out on the same issue and on two visits they failed to work out what was wrong. Ruttley Plumbing offer a Rolls Royce service. They check in after the visit and ensure everything is OK and treat you as a customer. I wont be looking for other Plumbers in the future. For the work they did the charge was very fair. Their equipment used is in top condition and of the highest quality (unlike other less reputable companies).

Today Ruttley Reline installed a liner in a sewer pipe that is under a house extension at my house. The pipe was blocked.The best solution e.g. for us was to have the pipe relined versus dig up the backyard. The pipe reline was completed in around 7 hours with minimum mess and disruption.Of course, I obtained three quotes for the job and Ruttley Reline was the winner.I found the company to have all the neccessay equipment and expertise to do the job. The plumber (Michael) was professional and friendly and kept us informed as to progress during the day.I would have no qualms in recommending Ruttley Reline.

You get what you pay for - full service but more expensive than expected. Contacted Ruttleys at midday and they were out to quote that afternoon (emailing a detailed quote on the spot) and completed the work the following morning (arriving on time, completing the work efficiently, cleaning up afterwards and emailing an invoice and receipt on the spot). Gerard was a true professional after quoting on the work I requested, he also performed a quick health check on our other plumbing (taps, pipes, toilets, hot water system) and identified any pressing issues and preventative maintenance - quoting on these (with no hard sell).
