What is sewer lining?
A pipe within a pipe, sewer lining can make the stresses that come with cracks, fractures and bursts a thing of the past! Trenchless, sewer lining technology is a type of subsurface plumbing installation that utilizes smaller holes, rather than large messy trenches. A group of different methodologies, materials, and equipment are used to install a sewer lining within the already existing underground piping. This allows for minimal disruption to property and to home owners routines. And, going with trenchless or semi-trenchless sewer lining implementation can offer a better flow of waste from your home to the sewer system.

What are its benefits?
The process and installation of these sewer liners is an altogether easier process than digging up your property. And, it helps you avoid potentially expensive repairs to get your lawn and driveway back in place.

How does it work?
Our resin based sewer liners are “Pull in Place.” We use the existing cleanout in your house to pull a new liner in place where needed. These resin sewer liners could even make it so your pipes never have to be repaired or replaced again!

How do I know if my sewer pipes are compatible with sewer lining?
First, the condition of the existing pipe needs to be considered. We need to have the circumference of the pipe in order to line the existing pipe. Otherwise we may need a small traditional dig to repair the pipe where applicable and line the rest of the sewer.

Give us a call today and we will come out to see if your property will allow for this type of sewer repair.
