When considering trenchless sewer pipe lining, many questions about the technology may come up. During times of stress especially, you want to make the best choice for your home. Pipe Lining is a durable solution for sewer replacement that avoids excavation and invasive demolition characteristic of traditional sewer replacement methods.
What is trenchless sewer pipe lining?
Pipe lining is a method to replace worn sewer lines without trenching through a property. This is accomplished by introducing an epoxy resin saturated fiberglass sleeve into the sewer line. The sleeve is cut to fit each sewer line. The sleeve, once cut, is cured in place with an inflated bladder inside. The finished product is essentially a new pipe within the old pipe. This method of trenchless sewer replacement is only possible prior to the current sewer line reaching the point of absolute failure, such as a collapse.
What are the benefits of Pipe Lining?
The primary benefit to pipe lining is avoiding invasive excavation and demolition that is typically involved in traditional sewer replacement methods. Pipe lining additionally offers superior durability. The new sewer line that is cured in the host pipe provides continuity not available from traditional approaches. Fewer connections provides less points for potential failure in the future. Viable sewers for pipe lining can be accurately and confidently identified through assessment by a qualified professional. Even though pipe lining is a superior choice for sewer replacement, the biggest disadvantage is the necessity for the current sewer line to be structurally sound with proper pitch.
What will pipe lining cost?
The exact cost can vary. There are currently several methods in use for this specialty service. The condition of the sewer line, how characteristics of the system are addressed, as well as the length of the sewer line to be replaced are all factors in determining the price. A main sewer line will frequently have several branch lines, or connections. Some companies use cutting devices to reinstate these connections once the lining is complete, while other companies skip these connections entirely. To ensure continuity of the main sewer line, performing reinstatements is more favorable but also the costlier option. You can expect to spend between $3,500 and $7500.00 for the average pipe lining.
