When the sewer pipes to and from your home get clogged or damaged, you could face significant damages and expensive repairs. In the past, homeowners and plumbers had to dig up the lawn in order to remove the old pipe and place pipe to repair the damaged sections. Today, however, pipe relining provides a cleaner option. The process we use at General Plumbing takes just three steps and costs much less than removing and replacing pipe.
1. Identifying the Source of the Problem
The first step is to run a camera through the old pipes. With the images pulled from the camera, we are able to evaluate the condition of the pipes, locate any problem areas, and determine the best solution.
2. Clearing Out the Pipes
Before the pipes can be relined, they must be cleared of all debris. Cleaning the pipes is an important step before any plumbing in Lake Worth is tackled. The clean-up basically consists of roots removal, de-scaling of calcite buildup, and the removal of all other debris from the pipes. With the pipes clear again, the original interior diameter is regained.
3. Installing the Lining of the Pipes
Next, an epoxy lining is injected into the pipe. This lining hardens into place inside the existing pipe, covering up any leaks, weak areas, and damaged spots. This relining method has eliminated the need to dig trenches to remove old, damaged pipes. Plumbers are now able to place the pipe within the original pipe with much less damage to the surrounding property.
Advantages of the Trenchless Method of Pipe Relining
Pipe relining offers several long-term benefits, including:
• Prevention of further damage
• Improvement of flow capacity
• Addition of structural strength
