Maintaining your sewer line properly should be part of any homeowner’s routine maintenance, but even with regular upkeep it doesn’t guarantee no problems will arise in your sewer lines. If your system needs trenchless pipe lining in Denver Pipe, here are a few things you can do so that it is prepared for repairs:

Prepare to be Without Running Water

As part of the process for lining sewer pipes, your home may be without running water for several hours during restoration work. If you intend on performing any chores such as washing clothes or car-washing or watering plants during this period, purchasing water in advance or scheduling them after restoration will be necessary.

Get Rid of Obstacles

To ensure CIPP pipe lining goes as smoothly as possible, make sure that any items which could obstruct repair processes are cleared away first. Remove pots, toys or lawn ornaments in the area in which repairs will take place as this will help our technicians reduce delays caused by these obstacles themselves.

Eliminate Tree Roots

Tree roots have the potential to damage sewer pipes. Their roots enter your system searching for liquids and nutrients that they create pressure upon, leading to cracks, leaks and sometimes burst pipes. We advise any tree owners living near sewer lines to cut back any branches which have roots growing nearby so as to protect their pipes from potential damages caused by tree roots.

Remove Clogs

It is highly advised to utilize drain cleaning services with cast iron pipe lining services when clearing your drainage for an extended period, to help eliminate any build-up of debris or dirt within your pipes and make the repair process more effective.

Does Pipe lining replace my existing pipe?

Pipe lining does not replace your current drain, it serves as a form of sewer rehabilitation by using it as its host system.

How long does Pipe lining last?

Pipe lining should last at least 50 years; it isn’t meant to be an inexpensive quick fix but provides an alternative to removal and replacement methods.

What happens if my pipe is cracked or missing the bottom?

Pipe liners have the capability of repairing loss depending on its severity and amount.

What materials can Pipe Lining rehabilitate?

Pipe liners can be used to transport wastewater in any capacity imaginable. CIPP Lining works effectively with clay tile pipes, ABS plastic PVC pipes, concrete pipe drains made of copper and cast iron as well as clay tile drains.

Does Pipe Lining reduce my pipe size?

Yes. But only 1/4 inch. Despite its smaller size, it does not limit flow or reduce capacity to handle wastewater. Thanks to its smooth exterior and non-jointless construction, flow rates are increased due to this new liner.

Does Pipe Lining work with smaller diameter piping?

Yes, but with certain limitations. Pipes with smaller diameter can only carry so much wastewater at one time, meaning lining drain pipes of two inches that provide drainage for washing machines may experience problems due to the amount of water released by washing machines. It would be wise to speak with trenchless contractors regarding your drainage plan if pipe lining drains that are less than three inches in diameter are being considered as potential solutions.
