Sewer Lining Services in Seattle

What is Sewer Lining?

Maintaining a reliable and efficient sewer system is vital for any home or business. When sewer lines become damaged, you need effective solutions that minimize disruption and provide lasting results. Our Seattle plumbing company specializes in trenchless sewer repair methods, including sewer lining and pipe bursting, to address your sewer line issues efficiently and with minimal impact on your property.

Sewer lining, also known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, is a trenchless method of repairing damaged sewer pipes by creating a new pipe within the existing one. This technique involves inserting a flexible liner coated with a special resin into the damaged pipe. The liner is then inflated and cured, forming a durable, seamless new pipe that reinforces the old one.

How Sewer Lining Works

  1. Inspection: Our plumbers perform a camera inspection to assess the condition of the sewer line and determine if sewer lining is suitable.
  2. Cleaning: The damaged pipe is thoroughly cleaned to remove debris, roots, and buildup, ensuring a smooth surface for the liner.
  3. Insertion: The resin-coated liner is inserted into the damaged pipe and positioned accurately.
  4. Inflation and Curing: The liner is inflated to press it against the interior walls of the existing pipe. The resin is then cured using heat or UV light, hardening the liner and creating a new, strong pipe within the old one.
  5. Final Inspection: A final camera inspection is conducted to ensure the liner is properly installed and the pipe is fully functional.
