How Does Pipe Re-lining Work?

April 28, 2015

Pipe re-lining is a process that repairs your damaged sewage pipes without having to dig up any drains. Instead of digging a wide and unnecessary long trench, professionals use the new pipe re-lining technology which doesn't require much digging and is much stronger than the current method of pipe replacement.

During a pipe re-lining procedure, any leaky or blocked drain will be repaired by materials that have a life expectancy of 50 years which prevents the future possibility of tree root intrusion by sealing cracks in the structure.

Instead of having to wait a few days and potentially vacate your home while your drains are in the process of being dug up, hiring an experienced pipe re-lining professional takes away the huge inconvenience of not being able to use the sewage system and allows you to stay in your home while the work is being done.

Once the professionals leave for the day, you are able to resume use of the sewer and won’t have to wait until the pipes have been fixed. This new trenchless technology restores the pipes making pipe re-lining inexpensive, durable and much faster than the traditional way of pipe replacement.
