When a section of your sewer system breaks down, the old way of doing things requires that the entire system is dug up and then a new system is installed. Now, one does not have to go through that very lengthy and costly approach because pipe lining has evolved to provide an easier and cheaper way to sort out sewer line problems.
The following basic steps are used to get your system functional again, at a fraction of the cost of the traditional way.
Sewer Camera Inspection
Before any sewer works can begin, the first thing done is to know what exactly the plumbers are up against. Using CCTV technology, a team will inspect the entire line in order to know where exactly the damage is and the cause of that damage.
The problem may for instance be caused by a root of a tree that forced its way through the pipe and caused it to burst or get blocked at that point.
When the cause of the problem has been identified, it is easy to plan how the problem will be addressed so a permanent solution becomes possible.
Eliminate The Cause Of The Problem
Before corrective action is taken, the plumbing team first does away with the root cause of the problem. In the earlier example for instance the team would have to come up with a way to remove the offending party, the tree root.
Each cause normally requires a special approach to address it so once the inspection reveals what caused the damage or blockage to the pipe, then appropriate tools will be used to get rid of that problem.
Once the problem has been diagnosed and the cause removed, the next step is to repair the damage. In this case, the old pipe is lined with an epoxy pipe that will run within the old pipe.
There are very many positives to this method besides avoiding the extensive digging up that must be done in order to replace the entire pipe system with a new one. Other benefits include reducing the chances of additional damage from tree roots since they can’t get at the inner pipe since the offending party (the root) will have been removed and also because the new pipe is protected by the outer pipe (the old one).
There is a lot of trouble associated with digging up your property. The landscaping gets messed up and you pay way too much to sort the piping problem. Pipe lining is therefore a good approach when looked at from several angles.
You should take quotes from several companies so that you get an accurate estimate of the cost of the sewer pipe lining. The quotes should have an itemized statement that breaks down each of the things that will be done, together with their cost, as well as the mark up for the contractor. When you take this approach you will be sure to get value for money.
