How does pipe relining differ to traditional methods of pipe repair?

This is an important question to have answered, especially when contemplating a newer method that is relatively unknown. One of the biggest fears that strikes homeowners upon learning that their sewer line is damaged is the thought of having their much loved landscape ripped apart in order for the pipe replacement to happen, dealing with a backyard that resembles a bomb site for days and end, then having to fork out thousands to pay a landscaper to restore their backyard to its former glory – and even money can’t promise that’ll be possible.

The biggest difference there is between pipe relining and more traditional methods of pipe repair is that pipe relining removes the need for pipe replacement. This means that there is absolutely no need to dig up your property, unlike the traditional and more well-known methods of pipe repair requiring excavation. As a result, pipe relining is a much cleaner and cost-effective method. This is a big selling point for many people and the main reason why increasingly, people all over Australia are opting for pipe relining over more traditional methods. The benefits of this revolutionary method of pipe repair are numerous and impressive. Let’s look at look at the most significant benefits pipe relining has over methods of pipe repair requiring excavation in a little more detail:

  • Pipe relining is done exceptionally fast. Unlike excavation methods that can take days on end to carry out, subsequently causing disruption to not only your landscape, but your daily routine, pipe relining is completed within just one day. In some cases, as many of our past clients have experienced, it may even be completed in a few hours.
  • It’s cost-effective. Because pipe relining does not require a large team of plumbers for it to be carried out, nor a large range of equipment and machinery, it is a far more affordable method of pipe repair that more traditional methods that require digging. Furthermore, with methods of pipe repair that involve digging there are subsequent additional costs relating to having a landscaper restore your property to its former state.
  • A better performing sewer system. Sewer pipes that have been relined actually function more efficiently than those that have not which may come as a welcome surprise. They have a much more consistent flow of wastewater and are able to withstand threatening forces such as tree root invasion like never before.
  • Pipe relining is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Once your sewer line has been relined, you can sit back and relax, knowing that it will serve you well for many years to come. In fact, the work is guaranteed to last for up to 50 years.

As is evident, pipe relining offers a wide range of very attractive benefits to those who opt for this method. For anyone wanting to save money and time and eliminate ongoing headaches as a result of having to repair sewer lines over and over, it makes sense to give pipe relining serious consideration when the time comes for your sewer pipes to be repaired.
