The three most common pipes found in older homes needing to be lined are:
- Terra-cotta pipe – Root damage, water infiltration within the joints, leaking out of joints which causes clogged pipes, cave-ins, and joint separation.
- Cast iron pipe – Rusting from the inside resulting from the pipe being significantly smaller which causes clogged pipes. Also the pipe rusting on the bottom leads to water and sewage leaving the pipes, which also causes clogged pipes and root damage.
- Orangeburg pipe – Pipe simply falls apart.
Piper transitions are no issue, we have specially designed liners to transition with ease.
A Liner is a better repair method simply because there is little to no digging involved in this trenchless process, making for a potentially more cost-effective and less disruptive method than traditional “dig and replace” pipe repair methods. In addition, there is no loss of structural integrity of the existing sewer pipe.
The average cost will obviously vary depending on the overall length of the sewer line repair. However, the most important thing to keep in mind is that the overall cost will be “significantly less” based on the simple fact that there is no major excavation and heavy equipment cost for the customer to bear.
Typically there is a single hole dug to gain access to the sewer line vs. an entire trench (possibly utilizing heavy equipment) that would disrupt your lawn, trees, driveway, sidewalk, basement floor, walls, etc.
Yes, the process is safe, cost effective and municipality approved to repair sewer line breaks.
