If your pipes are showing signs of age and wear, pipe relining might be an option for you. If you’re not sure what we mean by “pipe relining,” don’t worry—we’ll explain.
Pipe relining is a method of repairing damaged pipes that’s faster and more effective than traditional methods like excavation or replacement. It consists of inserting a tube made from durable materials like resin or rubber into the damaged section of pipe before inflating it with clean water to create a tight seal around the affected area.
In this article, we help introduce you to pipe relining and look at the process your expert plumber may follow for it. Stay with us to find out more.
What is Pipe Relining?
You may be wondering, “What is pipe relining?” Pipe relining is when a new pipe is installed inside the old pipe. This can be done without shutting down your plumbing system and without messy repairs and clean-up.
Pipe relining is more cost-effective than traditional repair methods because it uses less material and allows you to continue using your existing pipes instead of replacing them with new ones.
Reducing the Need for Excavation
Pipe relining can be done without shutting down a system. This is important because it means that you don’t need to stop using your water or gas supply, which could be costly and disruptive. The process also doesn’t require messy repairs and can be completed quickly, so there’s no need for expensive excavation work either.
Pipe Relining Benefits
Pipe relining is a cost-effective solution that can reduce the risk of sewage spills and other damage. It’s environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals involved in this process–just water pressure from your home’s pipes or septic tank.
And best of all? Pipe relining reduces the risk of sewage spills and other damage by providing better structural support than traditional PVC pipes provide on their own (and they last longer, too!).
In most cases, pipe relining is more cost-effective than traditional repair methods. The average cost of replacing an old water line is between $1,100 and $1,500 per linear foot; however, pipe relining can cost as little as $800 per linear foot when using our state-of-the-art equipment and techniques.
This means that in addition to saving money on labor costs associated with digging up your yard (and potentially damaging it), you’ll also save money on materials!
No More Messy Repairs
There are no messy repairs needed after pipe relining. This is because the procedure uses a polyurethane lining that’s installed inside your pipes, so you won’t have to worry about replacing parts or making repairs. The lining itself lasts for decades and can withstand the same conditions as if it were new–it will not corrode or deteriorate over time.
Pipe relining is also very quick, which means less downtime for your system and an easier installation process overall.
If you’re looking for a solution to your plumbing problems, pipe relining may be the answer. It’s a fast and effective way to repair your pipes without digging up or replacing them completely.
