Is pipe relining right for my sewer line repair job?

A common question that homeowners ask upon learning about the innovative method of pipe repair that is pipe relining is, ‘Is pipe relining right for me?’ Generally, if you want your sewer pipes to work effectively for you for a lifetime, then the answer is ‘yes’. Most people feel a sense of a relief with the idea of being able to avoid ongoing costs when it comes to sewer line repair and the related hassles. However, to ensure that pipe relining is indeed suitable for your sewer pipe repair job, it’s wise to call a licensed plumber to assess your pipes. They can ascertain whether or not pipe relining is the best course of action to repair your pipes by performing a CCTV sewer camera inspection before you make a final decision. As part of this process, the first thing they’ll do is clear out the tree roots or whatever is blocking your pipes with a high-powered water jetter. Once they have footage of the inside of the damaged pipe and the severity of it, they are in a position to make a conclusive decision as to whether or not pipe relining is your best option.

Clearing the affected pipe with the water jetter can restore order to the pipes, and some people are happy to leave it at that, but this is only a short-term solution. Whilst this process might be appealing to some homeowners as it’s fast and the initial financial outlay is not significant, inevitably, the already damaged pipe will become blocked again over time, meaning an on-going outlay of money until a more long-term method is utilised. Pipe relining is not only a long-term solution for damaged pipes, it’s a lifetime solution.

The other option is to completely replace your damaged pipes. This process requires digging up your precious property and leaves your backyard looking messy for days on end. Apart from being a lengthy and highly destructive method, there are associated costs with having to pay a landscaper to restore your landscape to its former glory once the excavation and pipe replacement processes have been completed. Because of this, excavation methods of pipe repair can end up costing far more than pipe relining.

Pipe relining, on the other hand is a fast and clean process. There is no digging required, which means not only less mess but also less disruption to your routine. It may come as a surprise, but pipe relining is typically completed within a day – in some instances, only a few hours. This is a huge advantage in itself. This jointless method of pipe repair leaves pipes 100% root proof and is also guaranteed to last for up to 50 years, removing the need to worry about any further outlays of your hard-earned cash or any future sewer system headaches. As a result of all these advantages that pipe relining has over more traditional methods of pipe rehabilitation, more and more Australians are opting for pipe relining when it comes to having their pipes repaired.
