Trenchless Pipe Lining FAQs

Instead of digging old sewer pipes up, why not rehabilitate them through trenchless pipe lining? Replacing and repairing sewer lines can be pretty difficult, but with this more innovative approach, repairs and replacements don’t even have to take place because the pipes can be rehabbed.

While not every sewer line is eligible for trenchless pipe relining, many are, and it can be very advantageous to take this approach when dealing with sewer pipes and lines. Being aware of everything that there is to know regarding trenchless pipe relining can be helpful if you have a major sewage line problem. In this article, we outline some FAQs about trenchless pipe relining. Keep reading to learn more!

FAQs on trenchless pipe lining

1. How does trenchless pipe relining work?

Access pits will be dug at each end of the pipe, and then tubes that act as neoprene coated in a resin will be pushed into the ends of the old pipe. Compressed air will be pushed into the area as a way to push the inside walls of the old pipe outward.

Once the resin is hardened, which may take a few hours, a new solid pipe will be formed within the old damaged one. The new pipe may be smaller in size but will end up being more durable than the old pipe.

2. Will the ground have to be torn up?

Not necessarily. One advantage of trenchless pipe relining is that the old pipe can be accessed through the small pits. Unlike with other pipe repairing methods, trenchless pipe relining doesn’t require one’s landscape to be ruined during the process. Because there are just two small holes or pits on either side of the pipe, there is likely going to be little to no full ground removal. 

3. Is trenchless pipe lining affordable?

In the long run, trenchless pipe relining may be more affordable. There won’t be a need to repair multiple things in your backyard after the sewage work is done. Unlike other methods of repair or replacement, trenchless pipe relining won’t require that sidewalks are pulled up or trees are cut down. As far as the relining itself, the price may vary based on the size of the current pipe system. 

4. How long will trenchless pipe relining last?

This method of repair and replacement for sewage pipes tends to last longer than other methods because of its durability. The resin that is used hardens enough to withstand just about anything. It may be a few decades before the sewage system needs to be repaired again.
