Innovative plumbing technology allows our Lake Worth plumbers to repair pipes without having to dig trenches. Pipe relining repairs pipes by reinforcing the pipe with a new lining. This is not only effective but can be less expensive than traditional pipe repairs.
The average cost of trenchless pipe relining can range from $6,000 to $12,000 or $80-250 per foot. This is comparatively cheaper than traditional pipe repairs which can range anywhere from $4,000 to $13,000. The steep cost is because traditional pipe repair requires more labor-intensive work.
The Pipe Relining Process
Pipe relining is an affordable, effective solution for broken or leaking pipes. It’s an option for most pipes including clay, cast iron, and sewer pipes. In fact, it can also be a solution for pipes located under floors and behind walls. What’s better is it only takes a few hours to install the lining.
How is Pipe Relining Done?
- Inspecting the pipes to locate the damage
- Cleaning out the pipes
- A secondary check to ensure the pipe is ready to lined
- Determine the length of the pipe
- The pipe is saturated with epoxy resin
- The curing process takes place to set the epoxy resin
- Inspection pits and junctions are cut out
- Pipe relining process is complete
Reducing Costs With Pipe Relining
Homeowners will appreciate that relining does not require the removal of landscaping, sidewalks, walls or floors. With this modern technology, plumbers use a camera to determine where repairs are necessary. With this information, plumbers can inject an epoxy that hardens to form a pipe within the existing pipe. The newly formed pipe only reduces the internal diameter of the pipe by a small percentage, so the flow of water is unimpeded.
