FAQs about Sewer Lining

Trenchless sewer repair allows us to perform repairs to sewer pipes that are not as disruptive as full replacements. Instead of digging up an entire pipe to replace, we can instead use a sewer lining to repair the broken or worn parts of the pipe without replacing the whole thing. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about sewer lining and how it is used in trenchless sewer repair.

Which pipes can be lined?
A number of different pipe types can be repaired with sewer liner. PVC, ductile iron, concrete, clay, or cast iron -- all can be lined.

How long does a sewer liner last?
The life expectancy of a sewer liner is approximately 50 years.

Can spot repairs be performed?
Yes! The advantage of performing trenchless repairs is that only the damaged parts of the pipe have to be repaired, and no major digging is required to make those repairs happen.
