Relining A Pipe

When technician repairs a damaged pipe by making a new pipe in the older pipe, this is called relining. The process restores the flow and function of the pipe. A mold is used called an epoxy; it is used in the older pipe to make it more tough. The benefit of relining is that digging is greatly reduced. Customers use pipe relining services when their pipes have root damage, rust, seal cracks, or joints that are missing underground. The technology is also recommended for roof drain pipes and storm lines. The pipe relining is efficient because the pipe is durable and seamless.

During the pipe relining process, an epoxy and resin is combined in a tube, and it is poured in the damaged pipe. Next, a bladder goes in the pipe, and it is inflated because it helps press the lining on the sides of the pipe. The bladder remains in the pipe for a few hours until it cures. The materials used during the process are not toxic.
