Modern technology has improved our lives in ways many people aren’t even aware of. When you call a plumber for pipe repair, you may feel as though you have to prepare your property to be torn up in some major ways. In the past, plumbers were forced to take apart your walls or dig up an entire yard in order to diagnose the issue and replace pipes that were leaking or otherwise worn down. Your sewer line runs underneath your yard, and you may be afraid that plumbers will damage the landscaping while repairing yours.
These days, however, innovations in plumbing have brought us new ways to fix a sewer line. First, a plumber will inspect the pipes to determine the problem using video camera inspection technology, which will not require the plumber to dig up the yard. Then, any cracks can be fixed with a very efficient pipe relining process. This process works for most leaks and to replace worn down pipes as well.
Pipe Relining: A Safe and Convenient Repair or Replacement Process
So how does it work? The process is fairly simple. A plumber must find a point of entry and exit for the pipes, which usually involves digging two small holes only. Then, the plumber uses a machine to line the inside of the pipes with an adhesive and insert a deflated pipe lining. A machine then inflates the lining so that it becomes pressed to the adhesive, creating a new lining for the pipes. This process is entirely safe for your plumbing and should last for decades to come in most cases.
Know the Signs Your Sewer Line Is in Trouble
Be sure to contact a plumber for pipe relining or other repair and replacement services as soon as you notice your pipes are in trouble. You may sense a problem with the sewer line if there is slow or backed up drainage or strange smells from the drains or in the yard. Otherwise, look for wet spots in the yard or parts of the grass that seem to be greener or growing more quickly than the rest.
