Sewer Pipe

Why is sewer line replacement is so expensive

Plumbing that functions well is a crucial part of our lives, whether we acknowledge it or not. If the pipes are working well, and water is running in our sinks and showers, we’re happy. However, there is always a chance that the foundational sewer pipes can get damaged and may need repair.

Sometimes, this damage can go beyond repair, and you will need to replace broken, leaking, or old sewer pipes. Your sewer lines are running underground and often in your yard, and no homeowner is happy about digging their yard and repairing pipes.

In this case, you need to call a professional sewer lining repair service that will perform a sewer pipe relining.

Sewer pipe relining is a process through which a professional will replace or repair your existing sewer lines without digging up your old pipes.

The process involves creating a new pipe inside the old and damaged one. This process seals the cracks and promotes better flow, and these pipes can remain intact for decades to come.












The Step-by-Step Process of Sewer Pipe Relining

Relining sewer pipes is a tricky and lengthy process. Sewer issues can occur due to a number of reasons, including tree root invasion, extremities in temperatures, and natural deterioration.

Here is the basis of all the sewer lining repair and replacement processes through a “no dig process”:

  1. Inspection. The first step is to assess the damage in the sewer line. We use a sewer line camera to carry out the inspection. The drain camera is sent down into the sewer plumbing. This inspection allows the professional sewer repair company to locate the point of damage or breakage.
  2. Cleaning. The next step is to clean out the debris from the damage and breakages. Since the new pipe has to be added inside the damaged one, it is important that your professional team clears the debris.
  3. Creation. Measurements are taken to create the custom pipe lining for the sewer liner repair. The replacement tubing is created using materials such as polyester, fiberglass, or similar materials. This is a custom felt liner that is designed with an inflatable inner side that matches the size and the specifications of the pipe.
  4. Installation. This step in the process of relining sewer pipes involves coating the felt liner in an epoxy resin. The un-inflated bladder is added to the liner. Ropes at the access ends are used to adjust the liner inside the old pipe. Once the liner and the un-inflated bladder are in place, and the position is confirmed by a drain camera, air is used to inflate the bladder. This creates a new pipe inside the cracked and damaged structure that covers up all the holes and breakages. This bladder remains this way until the resin in the felt liner is hardened and becomes a pipe. Once the felt liner is cured and toughened up, the bladder is deflated and pulled out.
  5. Quality Assurance. The last step is to ensure that the pipe is in the proper place and everything is working well. The drain camera is inserted again and quality of the installation is ensured.
