How To Reduce Sewer Repair Costs With Pipe Relining

Looking to reduce sewer repair costs? The owners of homes and businesses are responsible for repairing, maintaining, and replacing all the private fittings, mains connected hot water tanks and sewer lines within their property boundaries.

That means that any damage to your sewer lines at your property will need to be repaired or replaced, which can be very expensive. For example, if a licenced plumber has to dig up your yard and replace these pipes, you could be looking at thousands of dollars.

Homeowners and businesses must monitor the condition of their plumbing so that any damage to pipes can be repaired quickly. Using new technologies, a lot of damage can be repaired without digging up the yard, including through the use of pipe relining.

What Can Cause Damage To Sewer Pipes On Your Property?

It is beautiful to look at trees around your home, but they do pose a more significant threat than you may know. Tree roots are one of the biggest culprits of damage to your underground piping. A tree root is always looking for water and loves to find it in your pipes – but on their quest, they crack and break them.

Shifting soil can also cause cracking and damage to pipes, leading to water contamination and the possibility of soil-born diseases. So if you notice your yard is no longer level or has sinkholes, it pays to inspect the plumbing.

If there has been an increase in traffic or heavy machinery in your yard, that can also damage old pipes. And the No.1 reason pipes crack and corrode is just pure old age.

How Do I Know If There Is Damage To These Sewer Pipes?

If you experience any bubbling or gurgling sounds when you use your taps, showers, or toilet, it is not a good sign and could be an indication that your pipes are clogged or damaged.

If your water turns a nasty shade of brown and/or starts to taste like dirt or rusty metal, that is another sure sign you have issues with your pipes. Slow running drains or a drop in water pressure can be another indicator.

Finally, if you are experiencing pooling or unusual lush patches on your lawn or in your garden, this could be due to water leaking from an underground pipe.

What is Pipe Relining?

It involves literally relining pipes that have been fractured or broken without the need for digging. This technique involves creating a strong, new pipe inside the damaged one to increase flow and prevent cracks.

It involves a resin being injected into the pipes, which sticks to the surface and hardens, creating a new pipe that is even stronger than the original was.

Essentially, it makes the existing damaged pipe stronger and ensures better flow and leak prevention.

Pipe Relining Is Less Intrusive Than Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewage repair that involves eliminating an existing buried sewer line and replacing it with a high-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE).

Both pipe bursting and pipe lining require less excavation than trench sewer repairs. A pipe burst requires two access ports dug into the ground to apply pressure to the pipe, which will pop out. There is usually only one access point required for pipe relining to feed resin into the piping.

The End Product Is More Comprehensive And Superior

To reduce sewer repair costs it is simply far better to reline sewer and drain lines than to repair or replace them. Pipe relining is more often recommended by plumbing specialists since they can complete a project more quickly. And you will enjoy many benefits, including:

Landscapes, driveways, backyards, bathrooms, and gardens are not affected.

Repairing bends in pipes and hard-to-reach pipework is easier.

During pipe relining, fewer tools and manpower are required, making pipe relining more cost-effective.

It is possible to reline any type of pipe, including stormwater drains, sewer lines, septic systems, and chemicals pipes.

The relining materials work on various pipes, such as PVC, copper, and cast iron.

The environment and public health are not adversely affected.

It will Reduce Sewer Repair Costs In The Short And Long Term

The replacement of pipes is much more damaging to your landscaping than relining pipes. The cost of repairing the damage after a pipe replacement should be factored into the landscaping costs. In most cases, you don’t have to do any cleanup after relining.
