You may have had a sewer line inspection with us or your plumber may have advised you to replace your sewer pipes because they are clogged. He then provides you with a quotation for replacing all of the pipes inside the concrete foundation of more than $70,000. That much money is enormous! However, whether you want to believe it or not, that is a reasonable quotation and what the majority of contractors or plumbers will charge. The concrete base is primarily to blame for this.
With recent technological advancements, sewer line cameras have emerged as the most effective and precise method for identifying even the most complex plumbing problems. It eliminates any uncertainty or risk of property damage associated with having to dig up the pipes to check the pipes by allowing inspectors and plumbers to get a complete inside look at the pipes that are underground in the home’s foundation.
Cast iron pipe is no longer utilized in newly constructed homes and is most certainly not present in any residences constructed after the 1980s. Cast iron pipes’ major drawback is that they are prone to rust and corrosion, which over time results in holes and cracks in the pipe system.
Sewage that has a damaged cast iron pipe lingers beneath your house rather than traveling to its intended location.
A technologically advanced sewer line solution is the CIPP lining. It is also significantly easier, quicker, and less expensive than the standard dig and replace repair technique. It entails inserting a new sewer line inside an already-existing sewer line, which fixes the leakage issue while also keeping project costs down because no excavation is required. With the exception of the sewage line’s beginning and ending points.
This technique entails hydro-jetting the line to clean it, followed by placing an epoxy-saturated lining through the cleaned drain pipe. The flexible liner is fed into the sewage line through the access point all the way to the main sewer line connector. When the inner lining is allowed to dry, a firm, impermeable layer forms, sealing any leaks. However, when the liner is inserted inside the pipe, a small reduction in inner diameter will occur. The line’s flow rate is not adversely impacted by this.
PVC and Other Replacement Methods
Some homes’ cast iron pipes cannot be repaired using CIPP replacement techniques. In order to help ensure that your home is leak-free, we also provide a wide range of other choices, like part replacement and PVC piping installation.
