What is Pipe Relining?


Sewer pipe breaks or cracks caused by roots can result in a complicated repair process. Before pipe relining technology, plumbers had to dig out the pipe and either repair the damage or replace it with a new one. But with pipe relining from Roto-Rooter, there’s no need to dig a large trench in your front yard.

It all starts with pipe relining technology to identify the problem. Local plumbers like Roto-Rooter will use a video camera snake with LED lights that is pushed through the pipe to inspect for damage. Once an issue is found in the pipe our plumbing experts will dig a small access hole at each end of the pipe. Then a flexible tube is fed into the damaged pipe and compressed air is used to clear out debris. Our plumbing experts will then coat the inside of the old pipe with a neoprene resin. Once hardened, you’re left with a new solid pipe that rests inside the old one.

While the diameter of the pipe is shortened slightly, pipe relining is a great solution that won’t disturb your property. It’s important to note that pipe relining might not work if the pipe has multiple collapsed or caved in sections obstructing the flow of water.

The Benefits of Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is an amazing and innovative plumbing solution that makes life for everyone involved much easier. Pipe relining offers many benefits, including:

  • There’s no large equipment or property damage. A pipe relining repair won’t disrupt your day and leaves you property just the way it was.
  • After the extent of the pipe damage is diagnosed, work on average takes less than a day. So, your home or business can get back to normal faster.
  • Pipe relining is a more cost-effective option, as it doesn’t require you to dig up your yard, sidewalk or street.
  • The new pipe formed by the resin can last for decades and the old outer pipe helps protect the inside from root damage.
