Pipes That Last From the Growing Pains to the Golden Years

trenchless pipe lining Cerritos, CA

Buying a house and creating a home are not always the same thing. Whether you are married with a whole pile of children or somewhere on your way or just looking to have your own space, a house can sometimes be a lifetime proposition.

And as life changes, it is important that the home be a steady foundation, a place of sanctuary and comfort. Some homeowners react to disasters as they happen, putting out fires as they crop up. However, if you know that you are going to be in this house for the long haul, it might be time to think about what you can do to future-proof your house, to mitigate damage long before it happens.

Think about starting with the sewer lines

Though they are underground and not something we think about very often, the sewer lines going to the house are one of the most important components. They may not be the most glamorous component to update and improve, but when they break, they can cause untold damage and heartache to anyone’s home.

Fortunately, there are a few ways to clean and strengthen the sewer lines before they have breaks, leaks or ruptures. These preventative measures can add literally decades to the pipe system.

How to diagnose problem areas

Before you can begin targeting trouble spots and reinforcing them, it would be wise to consider a sewer camera inspection. The technician feeds a camera through the pipes and captures a video while watching live. This can not only help map out your pipes (helpful for landscaping) but can also find clogs, any roots that have infiltrated and possible future breaks.

Cleaning out the pipes

Next step for adding longevity to your sewer line is to scour out all the gunk, grime and possible roots that are shrinking usable space and catching solid debris. The most effective method is hydro-jetting, which is where a plumber power washes the inside of the pipe with a high-pressure stream of water. This stream can even cut through roots and flush them all away.

Strengthen the pipes before they break

When the pipes are mapped, diagnosed and cleaned, it is an ideal time to consider trenchless pipe lining. Starting first with the older or more worn-looking pipes, trenchless pipe lining strengthens the existing pipe and grants it years of life.

A trenchless pipeliner does not require anyone to dig up the yard; instead, the flexible polyester liner is slid into the existing pipes from an access point. Then, the liner is inflated by a bladder inside the liner. This bladder expands until the liner is now the exact size and shape of the outer pipe. The epoxy, coating the liner, then hardens through chemical reaction.

At the end, you are left with a reinforced pipe with a new watertight liner.

In for the long haul

When you buy a home, you are generally going to be living there for quite some time. Think proactively to make sure you have a comfortable, relaxing sanctuary instead of a constant to-do list of incoming repairs.
