If you have trees in your yard, chances are the pipes of your water system incurred some damage due to the tree’s roots. Many people put off calling a plumber, worried about having their yards ripped up, and it is costing a fortune.

But do you know that plumbing companies have a specific service for this exact situation? It is called pipe relining. 

What Is Pipe Relining?

Pipe relining is fixing pipes from the inside, so there is no need to dig the pipe up and replace it. It is not only great for those wanting to avoid the hassle and mess of digging up but is also a great solution for pipes that are located under the house, pool, or concrete driveway.

Pipe relining works by filling the existing pipes with an epoxy lining. Plumbers will then force it to the sides where it conforms to the shape of the pipe, filling in gaps and creating a new, solid pipe within a pipe.

That’s it. You get all the advantages of a new pipe without the mess and inconvenience of having it replaced. But the good thing about pipe relining is that it is also designed to last up to 50 years.

On the flip side, what if you only have a small section of the problem pipe? No worries, we can reline just the parts of the pipe that need it. The technique is called patching.
