Plumber Woolwich Pipe Relining

There are many different ways to make a property look more pleasing to the eye, and one of the popular ways is to plant trees. Trees also add shade, making your property cooler. Unfortunately, a tree can also do some damage to a property, particularly to the sewer line.

To know how tree roots do damage to a sewer line, one should remember that in decades past, sewer lines were made by connecting a number of two-foot to three-foot earthenware sewer pipes together. Each connection was then secured by a rubber ring.

Since these lines have been under the earth for many decades now, one can safely say that they have been subjected to a lot of ground movement. Proof of this is the number of cracks you may find on these lines. These allow roots to make their way into the sewer line, and once they are deep in there, they will begin catching debris. Once enough have been caught, wastewater and dirt will not be able to flow smoothly to the municipal sewer system until the buildup has been cleared out.

Signs that the sewer is completely clogged:

  • All drains are blocked.
  • Wastes do not flow out to other sections of the sewage right away.
  • Gurgling
  • Bubbling
  • Toilet bowl water rises
  • Offensive smells
  • Sewer gully overflow

There are two ways to clear out roots and dirt and debris buildup. The traditional method involves the electric eel, a tool not too different from a mechanical drain snake. Though effective against dirt accumulation and the root network that caused it, this does not sort out the eventual regrowth of roots in the pipe. The roots that grow back in there will be thicker and stronger, and this causes the cracks they pushed through to increase in size. In addition, this traditional solution requires digging, and so you can expect part of the property being worked on to look like a construction site for a few days. The need for excavation also makes the process costly for you.

The second method, on the other hand, known as ‘pipe relining’, involves the installation of a lining which is like another pipe, except that it has to be blown up and cured with heat. This process not only addresses root intrusion, but also addresses root regrowth.

Pipe relining steps:

  • A hydro-jet is used to clear the line of some dirt to get it ready for the next step.
  • A team member then inserts a camera so the problem can be assessed.
  • A device called a ‘water jetter’ is then used to remove the root network and the debris it caught.
  • The lining will then be installed using an air inverter and cured with steam or hot water.
  • Quality inspection is then performed with the video camera.

Why you need to consider pipe relining:

  • Digging will not be required most of the time. For this reason, it takes less than one day to finish. This is why pipe relining is a cost-effective method.
  • The lining is so tough, it can last decades in your property.
  • It makes your property more valuable.
