Seattle Pipe Lining Is The Better Alternative to Traditional Underground Pipe Replacement
The Bees Plumbing and Heating team has over 50 years of combined experience in the plumbing industry, and we've seen our fair share of compromised sewer lines. The pipe lining process is a way to make repairs or replacements to underground pipes without digging up the yard of your Seattle home you're so proud of. While pipe bursting is the process of moving new pipe through a line while bursting the old as a form of replacement, pipe lining also utilizes a trenchless approach. The non-invasive methods help you get the necessary plumbing service without destroying your lawn and landscaping. Using pipe lining means inserting new pipe tubes that are epoxy-coated into the current lines. From there, rubbing is inflated and cured into position using either hot steam, air, or LED technology. The outcome is a new seal lining for the walls of the existing pipes. This enables us to replace broken pipes and provide long-lasting results.
An Alternative To Old-School Pipe Replacement
The good thing about working with a plumber for Seattle projects with over five decades of industry experience is that we're familiar with the old and the new plumbing procedures and technology. We understand the old and the new and can easily see why new techniques are so much better and more efficient and effective. Innovative pipe lining methods make much more sense when a viable option and offer benefits like:
- No need to dig or excavate
- Improve flow through pipes
- No need to stop traffic
- Minimize the risk of damage to underground utilities
- Cheaper than a more invasive procedure
Your new pipes may last up to 50 years, even longer; it depends on the current condition of the pipes and the material being used for replacement.
