How Pipe Relining Works
Trenchless pipe relining is the act of repairing a pipe by applying a new pipe lining on its interior, and doing so without digging a trench to get at the pipe. In this process, the plumber inserts a flexible tube, coated in resin. This cured-in-place (CIPP) pipe goes directly into the damaged pipeline and inflates. Once it is inflated, it is left to harden. When it’s hard, it is basically a pipe inside a pipe that is more resistant to the damage to which other, older pipes are susceptible. Overall, the best part is that you can get a new, functioning, better pipeline without digging up anything else.
Costs of this service may vary, but the strength of the new pipe makes it more cost effective in the long-term. Plus, it does not carry the costs of post-repair restoration, nor does it require that you replace your entire system for any one pipe; you can reline only the one damaged pipe. Many people find that new pipes post-relining have better water and waste flow. This can improve efficiency, preventing you from overusing water. The pipes may be made of many materials, depending upon needs.
This form of pipe repair is not right for all pipes, however. The decision to use it may largely depend on the system and the environment in which it sits. A professional plumber can inform you of whether trenchless pipe repair is suitable for your pipes and needs.
