Trenchless Sewer Lining

When your pipelines need fixing, and you don’t want an expensive process of digging up and replacing the whole system, getting pipe relining from NGI Trenchless Pipe & Sewer Repair is the way to go. This inexpensive and safe method restores the durability of your plumbing system effectively.

How It Works

Pipe relining mainly works by repairing your pipes from the inside. Our plumber inserts resin and a flexible tube of fiberglass or polyester into the damaged line. The resin is left to cure and harden, forming a new and durable pipe inside the existing pipe. This trenchless pipe replacement process is a more efficient and cost-effective alternative for conventional replacement methods.

Steps Involved in Pipe Relining

  • Initial Inspection: The first step to trenchless pipe lining is a professional inspection. This will allow us to determine the location and length of the pipe as well as the severity of the damaged pipe. Completely collapsed pipes cannot be repaired with trenchless relining.
  • Insertion of the Liner: We then clean the pipe to ensure full adherence of the liner. When done, we insert a liner filled with epoxy resin inside the damaged pipe.
  • Final Inspection: Once the resin has cured, we perform a final inspection to ensure that the pipe has been completely repaired.
