What Is Sewer Pipe Lining & Is It Recommended in Florida?

January 17, 2024

When you think about traditional sewer line replacement, you may imagine a yard in disarray, a lengthy process, and a significant interruption to your routines. However, many homeowners have a better option.

Trenchless pipe repair allows optimal efficiency and minimal disruption. This cutting-edge method completely changes how plumbers approach sewer line issues.

Here’s what Florida homeowners need to know about sewer pipe lining:

CAN YOU RELINE CAST-IRON PIPES?

Cast iron is the common pipe material in many Florida homes, especially those built before 1975.

While they’re durable, the life span of this piping material is often shortened by our humid climate. This leads to premature corrosion, which can cause blockages.

Trenchless pipe relining is a reliable solution for restoring these aging systems without excavation.

By relining your cast-iron pipes, you can extend the life of your sewer main, preventing the problems associated with older cast iron pipes.

WHAT ARE THE PROS & CONS OF TRENCHLESS SEWER REPAIR?

When it comes to trenchless sewer repair, this method is:

  • Less invasive
  • Faster
  • More cost-effective
  • More environmentally friendly

Trenchless pipe repair is ideal for addressing issues like tree root infiltration, age-related wear, and corrosion without digging up your entire yard.

Trenchless pipe repair has two main cons:

  • It isn’t always possible based on the specific condition of the existing pipes: Collapsed pipes cannot be relined and must be completely replaced.
  • You also need a plumbing team that’s skilled in trenchless pipe repair: An amateur job will leave you with sub-par results.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR SEWER PIPE LINING?

Your pipes need to meet certain conditions for a successful sewer line repair. The existing pipes need to be stable enough to support the new lining.

A thorough evaluation from your plumber will determine if trenchless pipe repair is possible for your sewer main.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A TRENCHLESS PIPE REPAIR

Trenchless sewer pipe repair is streamlined and efficient. Here’s how the process works:

  • Video pipe inspection: Using a sewer access point, your plumber will insert a high-tech camera into your pipe. We’ll use the live video feed to determine the exact issue and location.
  • Pipe cleaning and descaling: Sewer cleaning prepares the pipes for relining. Hydro jetting uses a high-powered water jet to scour the inside of the pipes so the liner can adhere to it.
  • Inserting and curing the liner: A liquid epoxy solution and bladder are inserted into the pipe. The bladder expands to create the pipe within a pipe so the epoxy can cure in place.
  • Final inspection: We’ll remove the pipe bladder and insert the sewer camera back into the pipe to ensure it’s functioning correctly.
