When you think of sewer repair for your home, dollar signs may be flashing in your head, and images of a messy yard plague your thoughts at night. Luckily, sewer repair today is far different from previous generations. Advancements in technology allow sewer line camera inspection and sewer repair to be headache free as well as cost-effective and reasonably priced. Sewer pipe lining, also known as cured-in-place pipe, is a flexible tube coated with resin that is blown or pulled into the damaged pipe and inflated. Below are more ways trenchless sewer repair can benefit your home or business.
Standardized plumbing can be traced back to around 3,000 B.C. when the Indus River Valley civilization used earthen plumbing pipes to provide transportable water and drain wastes. Since then, we have always had to dig to fix damaged plumbing, causing a lot of mess and headaches. Today, trenchless sewer repair, also known as sewer linings, can protect the pipes from common failures, including debris buildup, corrosion, leaks, and root intrusion. New materials allow your lining system to resist the elements and last half a century.
Traditionally, sewer pipes are made out of metal or PVC. When a pipe is replaced, the scraps are thrown away and replaced with the same material. The sturdier material of epoxy-resin liner will last a minimum of 50 years and eliminates the need to dispose of the damaged pipe.
Low Cost and Fast Repair
A broken sewer line can disrupt your whole day and potentially cause health problems. Lining can be completed in a couple of hours and save you time and labor costs. Trenchless sewer line repair addresses underground blocked pipes that have burst, were improperly installed, and have cracked due to water pressure. Pipe relining also gets rid of the need for broken pipe removal. Inserting a hardening lining material coats the inside of an existing pipe and creates a new tube inside the broken one.
Easier Pipe Inspection
Sewer camera inspections are much less intrusive and eliminate excessive digging in your yard. It reduces the high cost of digging and guessing the wrong spots. Quickly locate a leak or water break in your home when you notice the slightest change in your water bill. Camera inspections offer irrefutable evidence of the condition of your pipes and reduce the need for an estimated guess that could cost thousands.
