Sewer lines can crack from corrosion, water pressure, and other stressors. When they do, you may need sewer repair service. Many New Jersey homeowners dread sewer repairs, because extensive digging and sewer excavation can wreak havoc on your carefully manicured lawn and garden. It can also break or disrupt driveways and other paved areas, adding to the cost of fixing the problem.
Fortunately, there’s a sewer repair solution that requires no digging at all, saving you yard and driveway while eliminating cracks and underground water leaks: sewer relining. Sewer relining, also known as sewer pipe lining, uses flexible but sturdy CIPP (cure-in-place pipe) to insert a waterproof, corrosion-resistant “pipe within a pipe.” Sewer relining in NJ fixes cracks, patches holes, and eliminates leaks– all in a simple process that takes less than a day, and won’t cause any damage to the ground above the pipe.
How Does Sewer Relining Work?
The idea behind sewer pipe relining is simple: patch up the inside of the pipe without replacing it completely. The great thing about pipe lining is that it’s a trenchless sewer repair technique. That means no digging, no damage, and quick repairs.
Sewer pipe lining works particularly well for pipes with relatively minor damage, like cracks and small holes, but with most of their structural integrity intact. These pipes aren’t at immediate risk of sewer pipe collapse, and don’t necessarily need to be replaced completely. Instead, they can be restored with a CIPP liner.
The CIPP Sewer Relining Process
Prior to sewer pipe reling, NJ sewer plumbers use hydro jetting to remove fats, oils, and grease from the inner walls of the pipe. This is because the resin cannot bond when these materials are in the way.
The pipe liner itself is a felt tube made from polyester or fiberglass cloth, and coated in resin. The tube is pulled or inverted into the pipe through either a sewer manhole, or a small excavated entry point. In most cases, the liner is inserted upstream and pulled downstream. After the liner is inverted with water pressure or air pressure, it can be hardened with steam, heat, or UV light. Once in place, the new sewer liner fits tightly, has no joints where it could leak, and is resistant to the corrosion that plagues old metal pipes.
Why Use Sewer Pipe Lining?
Both homeowners and sewer repair contractors favor sewer relining over sewer excavation for several reasons:
*No digging required. Sewer lining reduces hassle for the homeowner by taking excavation out of the equation.
*It’s quick. Sewer relining takes hours, not days.
*Pipe liners are jointless. Joints between sections of plumbing pipe are a prime location for underground water leaks and tree root incursion. CIPP liners are completely jointless, helping keep water inside and other things out.
Because sewer pipe relining is faster, simpler, and less intrusive than sewer excavation, it’s quickly become the norm for repairing a sewer line with minor to moderate damage.
