One of the most complicated issues to deal with in a business or at home is plumbing problems. While it’s easy to maintain your sewer lines in good shape—as long as you give them regular maintenance—the sewer laterals are a bit more complicated. If a lateral needs to be repaired or replaced, you are going to need a solution that is fast, affordable, and gives you guarantees.
At Pipe Surgeons, we have helped people in Boca Raton do better than repairing sewer laterals. We use a method that renews the sewer pipe and gives it at least another 50 years of top performance.
Sewer Pipe Lining
Lining a sewer pipe means that we create a new pipe inside the existing pipe. This is a trenchless system, which means that once we finish renewing the pipe, you won’t notice many signs that any plumbing work was done in your property. The advantage of trenchless plumbing is that there won’t be any heavy equipment digging a trench and scarring your property.
But if the lateral sewer pipe is buried in the ground, how do can we replace it?
We use something called a lateral lining. Basically we insert a felt liner filled with a resin that will become the new pipe. It’s called lining because we align the damaged pipe with the our liner. We know it gets confusing, but don’t worry. All you need to know is that it works and the new pipe is going to have better flow than the one you had before.
Once the lining is in place, what happens next? How exactly does it become a new pipe?
The lining is cured using UV light and high temperature pressurized air. This cures the resin creating a seamless repair that is essentially a pipe within a pipe. The method is commonly referred to as CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) and will cost you far less than any other kind of sewer pipe repair. It’s even the most cost effective of the trenchless methods. The expert plumbers at Pipe Surgeons can have your lateral pipe lining project completed in as little as a few hours.
Why would you consider a sewer pipe lining your sewer lateral?
Well, where this kind of trenchless repair excels is that in addition to being environmentally friendly to your yard, the work can often be done without disruptions in service to your home or business. Plus, once completed, your new lateral lining will last about 50 years. It’s also a fast, budget-conscious solution to drain problems, leaking pipes and clogged sewer lines.
Instead of digging from the outside down to the pipe requiring repair, lateral lining fixes the problem from the inside.
