How Does Trenchless Pipe Relining Work?


Trenchless Pipe Lining: What Every Customer Needs To Know

Starting a conversation about trenchless piping is not something done on a daily basis unless the person works for the company. There has to be a good reason to start the conversation if a person wants to hear an intelligent response. Today’s content is going to focus on trenchless pipe lining and what customers should expect.

1)  How does it work?

It takes the conventional methods used for a long time and takes it to the next level. Using conventional methods requires more work and money. Some customers do not have a lot of money to spend on this type of work.

Trenchless piping requires more rehabilitation than digging. Take a look at the pipes in the neighborhood sometime. Are they made from clay or concrete? That kind of piping is going to begin failing after a few years. Once again, it comes down to the idea of rehabilitation instead of digging and gutting the line.

There is an excellent video online that shows how some of the processes work. There are also some other impressive videos while on that page. Take a look. The more you find out about it, the better explained the experience is going to be.

2) Are there trees in the neighborhood? Here is what customers need to know

Customers can relax because neighborhood trees are not in jeopardy. The technique used is a great alternative known as “pipe bursting.” It helps out those who do not want to cut down the trees. Some trees provide comfort to homeowners. Others are designated a historical landmark.

Companies have tools and resources to avoid damaging the trees, including the Roto-Rooter. It helps to find out whether or not the sewer can pass inspection. Sewers that do not pass inspection can be closed down for a period of time. They can be shot down for everything from being too clogged to smelling too much. It is pretty nasty to experience the toxic smell up close and personal.

Is It A Good Idea Or Not?

It depends on who you talk to. Some argue that this method is better in the overall picture. Others argue that using more conventional methods should be the way to go.

Some argue a person should not fix what is not broken. There may be an argument for that, but homeowners should think about something else.

This method has been around for quite a few years. The only problem is that most homeowners do not know about it. They only hear about the conventional methods being used because no one talks about the other methods.

Some argue that trenchless methods cost between 30-50% more than the other methods. That may be true, to a certain extent. However, the homeowner will see their costs being reduced in the restorative methods. It costs less to restore this type than it does the other kind. Trenchless methods will save the customer thousands when it comes time to restore the work. The conventional methods do not have that benefit.
