See The Mesmerizing Way We Perform Pipe Relining And Learn The BenefitsPosted By: Ed Miller
After experiencing a backed up sewer line, you call in the expert to remove the clog but what they find will need a lot more than just a water jetter cleaning. There’s significant damage to your pipe underground, with several cracks that are causing puddling around your property.
Conventional sewer line repair is an option, however it requires extensive digging throughout your entire property, from the house, through flower beds, to the sidewalk and out to the street, to remove and replace the entire pipe. All of a sudden, you envision massive digging equipment and a lawn completely in disarray. But, in most instances, there’s actually another way – one that can save your lawn from that invasive digging and could actually be a cheaper solution.
What Exactly Is Pipe Relining – And What Are The Benefits?
Pipe relining is a less-invasive way for repairing a damaged pipe, using an epoxy mixture to create a barrier around the pipe’s walls, restoring the structural stability of the pipe. The benefits of this technology include saving time, money and the amount of digging on the property.
Bypassing conventional sewer line repair and the old way of doing things, pipe relining is a state-of-the-art technology that repairs wastewater pipes rather than replacing them. This non-invasive technique requires minimal digging – typically only at the entry or exit points – and, thanks to a heavy duty epoxy mixture, it actually creates a sturdy barrier around the pipe’s walls, restoring the structural integrity of the pipe. Think of it almost as a protective shield, turning cracked or damaged pipes into like new again, with a pathway for wastewater to flow.
We could get pretty technical about what’s involved with pipe relining and really nerd out about it but, instead, we created a demonstration video where we took a section of a cracked cast iron pipe and explained all of the steps involved in sealing it off with a liner, so it can still be used.
Pipe relining might be a highly-advanced, and highly-technical, process but there’s more to it than just a satisfying video, with a number of benefits over conventional pipe repair.
- Time Saver: Conventional pipe repair, which typically involves replacement, can take several days if not even a little longer, depending on the size of the job and the weather. Pipe relining can be done within just two days, relying much less on weather conditions.
- Less Digging: Your yard, driveway or sidewalks won’t get destroyed in the process, so you don’t have to worry about replacing your grass, flower beds or anything else.
- More Cost Efficient: To fully understand the cost, you need to look at the big picture. With conventional pipe replacement, there’s a ton of digging and ripping up property, so you need to factor in replacing sidewalks and potentially redoing your entire yard. Pipe relining only requires digging at entrance and exit points, saving you money and hassle.
