Pipe Relining: A Non-Invasive, Affordable Way to Deal with the Broken Drain Pipe

Maintaining pipes regularly is an absolute must for every homeowner, no matter if there are any signs of damage or not. It is always a much better option to reline your pipes regularly than to wait until they start leaking, but if you notice your drain pipe is broken, an immediate action is required. This is definitely not a DIY job, but luckily enough, today there are many companies that can help you with relining your pipes at affordable prices.

Thorough Examination

If you give your pipes another coat of protection without previously checking for any leaks, there are chances you will do more harm than good. Therefore, it’s an absolute must that the plumber checks all of your pipes before you start relining. The most common sign of leakage is wet areas on your lawn. Also, if the pressure in your home seems low, you will want to check for any bathroom leaks. If any issues are detected, the plumber should always first replace the damaged pipes, and only then apply another coat to them.

Roots in pipes

Getting Rid of Harmful Roots

Trees are surely a great decoration to have in your garden. Not only this, but they play a necessary ecological role, as well. Still, sometimes their roots can go so deep that they start damaging your underground pipes. This can cause you a lot of trouble and therefore it’s always a good idea to deal with the roots before they damage your pipes. So, before the professional protects your pipes with an additional layer, you should make sure that any harmful roots are removes, otherwise they can even penetrate into the new layer causing serious damage to your newly relined pipes.

Freeing the Pipes from Clogs

Another thing that simply has to be done before relining is freeing the pipes from any clogs. Dealing with some major clogs will be much more difficult once the plumber has finished relining your pipes. The best way to do this is to pour some drain-cleaning liquid into your pipes at least a few weeks before  relining. In fact, this should be done regularly, at least once a month, advise Sydney's pipe relining pros. When freeing your pipes from clogs, you should always aim at using some environmentally-friendly products, as in this way all the ground in your garden will remain unpolluted.

Dealing with Underground Obstacles

What’s so great about relining your pipes is that there’s no need to replace the old ones but simply enforce them. This can save you a lot of time and money. Still, this is not going to be the case if you start relining only to come upon an underground obstacle that will prevent you from getting the job done. This will not only slow the works down, but it will cause some additional expenses, as well. That’s why the plumber should always inspect the whole area before starting to apply a new coat on your pipes.

Relining your pipes is definitely a great way to keep them well-maintained and protect your precious garden. Having experts deal with any issues will keep future leaks at bay and save you money in the long run.
