What is Pipe Lining?

Today we’re going to be focusing on pipe lining. If a plumber of drain specialist has mentioned this to you and you’re a little confused as to what it is, then our post should be really helpful.

The clever methods used with pipe lining repair your pipes in less time

Pipe lining allows repair of the drain without having to take it out completely. Something like a saturated felt tube will be inserted into the pipe, then inflated where it will be able to ‘cure’ the problem. This means that in effect, there’ll be another brand-new pipe inserted within the older one. This should have a really long-life span so you won’t have to worry about it causing further problems in the near future.

Invasive and effective

This process is quite invasive and there are several steps to go through first. A camera will be sent down first to investigate the problem further. This will be a sophisticated camera with high definition so it can see much better in the murky depth. You will be provided with a copy of the video alongside a report of what the problem is and what the proposed remedy is.

Damaged pipes can cause tremendous problems

As you can imagine, whether you’re a business or a domestic property, leaking, damaged pipes can cause tremendous problems. If you are a business, then you can lose trade as a result, with burst pipes and damage to property. Naturally, this is the last thing you need, you use your pipes every day, so too much downtime in terms of being able to use the toilet, sinks or water fountains is bad news for you and your staff.

When pipe lining is needed it’s usually down to some of the following problems, such as leaks, low water pressure or noisy pipes. This final issue can be down to loose brackets which will explain the noise.

Solutions that work

Pipe lining is a good solution to these types of problems because it’s fast and effective, taking only around a day to do. There’s no digging or excavating needed, and as a result you won’t have to restore the damage to the surrounding area or any buildings, inside or outside, that were compromised while repairs were being carried out. If you’re continually suffering from burst pipes, then it be a sign they need replacing, and by having them repaired using the pipe lining method you could be saving yourself so much time and expense.
