3 Benefits for Choosing Trenchless Sewer Lining

Apr 19, 2019

Drain issues are not something you should ignore. While clearing the clog is only the first step, the second is to figure out where the root of the problem is. The best way to do so is with a camera inspection of your drain and sewer lines.

When the primary cause is a damaged or deteriorating sewer pipe, or if tree roots are making their way into your host pipe, that’s where trenchless sewer lining comes into play.

In the most basic terms, trenchless sewer lining is the process of creating a new pipe inside the existing host pipe. A resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester is inserted or pulled into a damaged pipe. The lining hardens making the inside of the pipe ‘as good as new’. Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless drain lining process, making for a more environmentally friendly method than traditional “dig and replace” sewer. Trenchless sewer and drain rehabilitation methods are generally more cost-effective than traditional exhume (dig) and replace methods. Many people in San Diego are now looking to trenchless pipelining as an alternative to traditional sewer and drain repair.

So, if you are suffering from some significant drain and pipe issues, here are three reasons why you might want to consider a trenchless sewer lining repair:

1. Less Damage to Your Landscaping

We’ve all seen big trenches dug through a neighbor’s yard from the house to the city main out near the street. Thanks to the minimal need to dig, your landscaping won’t need a total to revamp. First, we clean out the host pipeline with our rooter machine. Next, a special pipe camera is used to confirm whether the pipe can receive lining or not. If it can, all it will take is just one small pothole (4ft. x 3ft.) to expose the pipe, followed by the lining being inserted and “cured-in-place”. Of course, the alternative would be to dig and replace large (or complete) parts of the pipe, leaving you with a ripped up yard.

2. It’s Faster and More Cost-Effective to Fix Rather Than “The Dig and Replace” Method

With expert knowledge and careful process, sewer lining can be done within a few hours, leaving you with pipes in almost brand new condition. Another major plus is that by identifying the area that needs fixing, you don’t have to worry about an expensive, massive pipe replacement. Certainly, we can fix the area in question, line the pipe and bring it to where it needs to be, without the extra waste of product and time (which saves you money in the process).

3. The Eco-Friendly Choice

Not only will you save unnecessary damage to your lawn or garden, you gain some precious, “me-time,” and save money, and you can also be happy knowing that you’re also providing a more eco-friendly way to properly fix your pipe for the long term. By using an epoxy resin, you don’t have to worry about the removal (and replacement) helping fill our landfills less frequently. Additionally, this sturdy method can help prevent chemicals from leaking into your drinking water and groundwater. So why not save money, time, and the environment?
