If you have old, corroded or damaged piping, then you are likely in need of professional help. A poor plumbing system can create a mess in your home and take a toll on your water quality. There are several ways to address troublesome piping. At General Plumbing, we specialize in sewer pipe relining that quickly diagnoses and resolves the issue.

Digging

Pipes are underground, which means a specialist has to go underground in order to make repairs. Some plumbers will dig up your yard in order to reach the piping and remove damaged pieces or make repairs. This can be unsightly and more expensive than necessary.

Pipe Bursting

This type of repair will pull a new pipe through an older, damaged one. Pipe bursting is not always ideal for sewer pipe relining, as it cannot be used if the pipe has collapsed or has joints. Also, it usually requires digging around the pipe.

Cured-in-Place Pipe

Many professionals employ the cured-in-place method of repair because it can be used on a variety of areas, including sewer lines, sanitary vents and drainpipes. Also known as trenchless technology or epoxy pipe lining, CIPP uses small cameras to identify the problem at hand. Then, using special tubing, a Lake Worth plumber cleans out sewer lines and puts a new liner in place. This type of sewer pipe relining not only repairs damage, but it also makes a better pipe that is not subject to problems such as root damage and calcification.

At General Plumbing, we want to preserve your system and your home. We utilize trenchless technology to repair damaged pipes, whether they are under your hardwoods or outside your house. You can trust us to get the job done without causing a major and messy interruption in your home. To learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment today, please call us at 561-420-0442.
