Repairs are imminent – on our cars, our technology, our homes. While some repairs can go ignored for a while until we have enough time or money to devote to them, others cannot. Sewer line repairs, for example, call for immediate action.
At first, sewer line repairs can seem incredibly daunting, especially if you’re told you’ll need to dig up your yard or break through the floor of your home in order to access the sewer pipe.
Trenchless pipe relining can significantly mitigate your fears about how to manage a sewer line repair. The trenchless method is called cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). It is a seamless, jointless, pipe within a pipe.
Below we briefly discuss some advantages of CIPP sewer lining over traditional sewer repair methods.
Requires Little to No Digging
Instead of digging a huge trench, CIPP sewer lining only requires one or two access points on either side of the broken, cracked or leaking pipe.
Provides More Durability
The CIPP sewer lining has a longer life than most other pipe materials like clay, cast iron and PVC. Sewer lines repaired with CIPP lining can last over 50 years, resisting chemical damage, earth shifts, root infiltration and other common pipe problems.
Lowers Your Overall Costs
Traditional methods of sewer line repair may end up costing you more in the long run because after the sewer line has been repaired, you’ll need to spend more to repair your yard or home.
Saves You Time
While most traditional sewer line repair methods can last up to three days, trenchless pipe relining can be completed within one day. This means you won’t have a huge mess or a working crew hanging around your home for very long.
Protects the Environment
CIPP sewer lining minimizes the amount of leakage during the repair process. Leaks can lead to the breeding grounds for pesky insects and harmful bacteria.
If CIPP sewer lining is an option in your situation, ask a professional for more details about how it can help to lower your overall budget and increase your peace of mind over the next 50 years.
