Do I Need Professional Drain Relining?
Are you concerned that you may need professional drain relining? You might not even know what that is. Before you get too worried, let’s go over what this process entails.
Drain relining is a very minimally invasive process. In short, it involves inserting an epoxy-saturated felt tube into the pipe, inflating it and letting it cure in place. After the liner has cured, the result is a brand-new pipe within the old pipe. The benefits of this process are huge. There is no digging or destruction involved, so your yard doesn’t need to be torn apart. Drain relining is also a very environmentally friendly choice, as it involves no hazardous waste!
Experts say pipe linings are equally durable. Costs for trenchless replacement vary, depending on factors like material prices, soil type and how deep sewers are buried.
Trenchless options can cost 30 to 50 percent more than conventional digging in some cases, but can still be more cost effective because you’re not spending thousands of dollars in additional restorative work.
What are some signs that you may need new pipe lining?
- Water backup
- Lower quality of water
- A tree near the pipe could puncture the pipe with its roots
- Your knowledge of when the pipe was placed
- Odor in the yard
- Gurgling toilet noises
- Sludge in the bathtub
- Clogs or rust
If you experience any of these instances that stem from the symptoms of your sewer pipe, you will need to call a professional.
