Five FAQs about Sewer Lining

As sewer lining in Maple Grove continues to grow in popularity, more and more people are calling us to learn more about this type of sewer repair. Sewer lining is a way to repair your sewer pipes without needing to dig into your lawn. This could help you save money on having your landscaping redone or your driveway fixed after we’re done with our work. Here are a few of the questions we hear the most often about sewer lining and our usual responses.

Q: Could I save some money on sewer lining?

A: Yes. Sewer lining installations are faster than traditional repairs, and you do not need to call your utility company to get the utility lines marked. You also do not have to worry about your garden, landscaping, sidewalks or driveway. They will not need to be dug up, so your prize rose bushes will be safe!

Q: Will I have to worry about a reduction in pipe flow?

A: No. Sewer lining will not affect pipe flow. It will actually improve pipe flow because the resin-based liner is smoother than the clay or concrete pipe.

Q: Is sewer lining environmentally safe?

A: Yes. A cured pipe will mold to the host pipe, which means it will further help to prevent infiltration and exfiltration. It will also help restore structural integrity and it eliminates joints that can weaken and allow tree roots to grow through the pipe. A stronger sewer pipe is less likely to leak and cause environmental problems.

Q: How does sewer lining work?

A: Using special equipment, we pull a resin-based liner into your old sewer pipe. We then inflate it, causing it to adhere to the old pipe. This means cracks and fissures will be sealed up, and you will enjoy the other advantages mentioned in this post.

Q: Why should I hire you for sewer lining instead of one of your competitors?

A: The experts at Gene’s Water & Sewer are fully licensed, bonded and insured to do sewer lining work. We have plenty of training and experience, and we do our work on time and on budget to ensure your sewer pipes are working as they should be.
