Pipe Lining In Magnolia & The Benefits

Pipe lining is the use of an epoxy resin to reline, or renew, your existing pipeline. Instead of removing old pipes with pipe bursting or via traditional sewer repair, pipe lining involves using them as part of the new pipeline. The old pipes are cleaned with forced hot air or hydro jetting and then a felt liner soaked in epoxy resin is inserted through an existing access point to the plumbing and pushed through.

Using an existing access point eliminates the need for the technician to dig trenches to access the sewer line. The resin is inflated until it hardens to the inside rim of the pipe, creating a pipe within a pipe. There are many benefits to the pipe lining process and its results, including:

  • Repair pipeline materials including Orangeburg, PVC, cast iron, clay, and more
  • Repair various pipeline diameters ranging from two to twelve inches in size
  • Environmentally friendly installation process
  • The epoxy resin is non-hazardous and effective for non-potable water systems
  • The epoxy pipes are resistant to corrosion and tree roots
  • The typical lifespan of epoxy-based pipes is approximately fifty years or more

How Pipe Bursting Works

Pipe bursting takes place entirely underground, which results in minimal damage to above-ground landscaping. It is performed using hydraulic equipment, a pulling machine, and pulling rods to burst through the existing pipes and pull replacement pipes into their place. Pipe bursting is a popular choice because there is a unique variety of new material that can be selected. The old, fragmented pipes disintegrate underground and make room for the new pipes of choice. Pipe bursting can be used to replace the entire sewer line and is quick, taking at most a few days to complete.
