My sewer line continues to back up even after being cleared. And it has the scent of sewage around the house, I’m beginning to think this is more than a clogged sewer line. Does that sound familiar? We had a camera inspection completed on the sewer line, and the diagnosis was a broken sewer line. As a homeowner, you think, “What will it cost to replace a sewer line?” and “How will it affect my landscaping?” For most homeowners, you can count on one hand the times you have had to call your plumber. Most homeowners can probably give you the update on the latest iPhone technology, but the latest plumbing technology, that’s another story. Most homeowners wouldn’t even know anyone that’s had their sewer line replaced.
You Don’t Need To Tear Up Your Old Sewer Line
In most cases, your cracked or broken sewer pipe doesn’t need replacing. However, here’s the silver lining, no pun intended; instead of replacing your sewer line, you can have an epoxy trenchless cured in place sewer line installed. Furthermore, you don’t have to tear up your current landscaping.
Epoxy Sewer Line – How The Process Works:
1) The pipe must be video inspected by your plumbing company. Most sewer lines qualify for the epoxy coating; but in some cases, if the damage is too severe, it will need pipe bursting or a replacement altogether. A camera is sent down the pipe to inspect the damage.
2) The pipe needs to be free of debris, so it’s cleared using a hydro-jetter. The hydro jetter will leave your drain crystal clean.
3) Once the line is cleared and cleaned, the pipelining can be pulled into place. Next, an epoxy resin saturated polyester fiberglass pipe gets pulled into position.
4) Air pressure is inserted into the liner, holding it to the inner walls of the sewer line until it’s cured in place.
The Benefits Of An Epoxy Trenchless Cured-In-Place Sewer Line
Repair Time Reduced
Trenchless repair saves time by eliminating the need for digging, allowing for faster completion of repairs. For example, a sewer repair that could take many days using traditional methods frequently gets achieved in one day with an epoxy cured in place trenchless sewer line.
Numerous homes and companies have sewer mains that run beneath lush, expensive landscaping. Dredging up old sewer mains can cause significant damage to landscaping that can be expensive to repair. The epoxy trenchless sewer line repair requires only two small access holes to access the sewer lines, which are typically located at the pipes’ entrance and exit points, minimizing damage to surrounding landscaping.
Safe To Install
A network of gas, sewage, and water lines comprises an underground plumbing system. Epoxy cured-in-place trenchless pipe repair enables technicians to finish the job efficiently and without the risk of colliding with any other lines.
The repair or replacement of your sewer line is typically one of the more expensive plumbing issues you’ll face. With trenchless methods, less labor is required, lowering the overall cost of the new epoxy trenchless sewer line repair. Additionally, no damage to landscaping or outdoor features occurs, further lowering the overall repair costs.
Repairs That Will Last a Long Time
Trenchless sewer repair is just as effective as conventional sewer main repair. Long-lasting solutions include using epoxy trenchless cured-in-place liners. The liner is impervious to corrosion and rust with a life expectancy of up to one hundred years. In addition, epoxy cured-in-place trenchless repairs adhere to all industry plumbing standards.
Along with lasting longer and requiring fewer future repairs, epoxy trenchless repairs will frequently enhance a sewer system’s functionality. For example, pipeliners are smooth, increasing better water flow capacity.
