How to Prepare Your Property for Trenchless Pipe Lining

If you have a damaged sewer line or water line, then the thought of having it repaired might be nerve-wracking. No one likes to have their yard excavated and torn apart after all. Fortunately, there are modern solutions for this age-old problem. Pipe lining, a trenchless sewer repair method, saves your manicured lawn from destruction. In this brief article brought to you by Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air, we examine how trenchless pipe lining works and how you can prepare your property for an upcoming appointment.

If you are looking for reliable and affordable pipe repair, you can call Rooter Hero to get started with a consultation. Our uniformed plumbers offer a host of solutions, including pipe lining. We are ready to take your call.

What Is Trenchless Pipe Lining?

Trenchless pipe lining is an innovative method of repairing, or restoring, underground pipes without the need for costly and disruptive excavation. It is minimally invasive, much faster, cleaner, and more cost-effective than the traditional pipe repair methods. This approach is particularly beneficial for pipe repair in urban areas, where digging up streets and sidewalks can cause major disruptions to traffic, neighbors, and businesses. It is also the preferred pipe repair method for homeowners with beautifully manicured lawns or gardens.

So, how does it work? You can think of pipe lining as patching the damaged pipe from within. Trenchless pipe lining uses a flexible, resin-saturated liner to create a new pipe within the existing damaged pipe, restoring its structural integrity and increasing its service life.

Preparing for Trenchless Sewer Repair

You are convinced of the benefits of trenchless sewer repair and are thinking of scheduling, or have scheduled, an appointment. What now? Before the plumber can get started on pipe lining, there are some things to do first:

  • Verify that local codes allow trenchless sewer repair methods in your area.
  • Clear out any clogs in the pipe by scheduling drain cleaning. A clean pipe will ensure the lining properly adheres to the interior.
  • Pinpoint any breaks. Pipe lining can resolve minor fractures, but large ruptures will have to be handled another way.
  • Relocate any mature trees that you can, or remove tree roots if you cannot move the tree altogether.
  • Clear out the area of obstructions such as plant pots, outdoor sculptures, toys, and other things that can get in the way of the plumber.
  • Expect to be without water and plumbing during the work. This applies to the water line as well as the sewer line.
  • Understand that minimally invasive work still involves some digging. There may be some work to be done to restore your property when the plumbers leave.
