When a sewer line clogs, it’s next to impossible for a home or company to function efficiently. With limited or no plumbing, a business can be forced to shut down.
Historically, replacing a sewer line could be a nightmare. While the work was being done, people might have to temporarily relocate. Even neighbors could be inconvenienced while workers dug up the pipes. Streets closed, businesses lost customers and everyone’s schedule was messed up.
Excavation is still sometimes required for sewer line repair, but there’s a better alternative in many cases: pipe lining sewer repair.
8 Reasons to Choose Pipe Lining Sewer Repair
Modern pipe lining or CIPP repair work is quick, non-invasive and long lasting. Here are some of the most significant benefits.
- There is no need to dig multiple trenches on the property. Your landscaping, hardscaping and buildings won’t be damaged to access pipes.
- It saves money in two ways: it is far less labor intensive and customers don’t have to pay to restore landscaping and structures.
- It reduces the chance of sewer failure. Because the work is nondestructive, owners are more likely to have work completed before the problem becomes severe.
- The new pipe lining has better flow efficiency.
- It works on pipes that run at angles and have multiple bends.
- Because it is less intrusive and results in less collateral damage, it is suitable for historic buildings.
- The lining process can normally be completed in a single day.
- The process is environmentally friendly, and the pipe can last up to 50 years.
The Downside of Traditional Sewer Pipe Repair
Pipe lining technologies are the new standard for sewer repairs. Pipe lining is also called cured-in-place or CIPP repair.
Traditional methods required weeks to finish. The process was messy and intrusive. The labor-intensive process required plumbers to dig multiple trenches. It was the only way to gain access to a damaged pipe.
Once workers found the source of the problem, they had to dig out the damaged pipe and insert a new one, wreaking the landscaping.
If the sewer lines ran beneath sidewalks, driveways, or floors, workers had to cut through these structures to get access to the sewer pipes and repair them.
Owners were responsible for restoring the lawns and gardens, sidewalks, patios and buildings. The restoration process was expensive.
