The Root of the Danger for Lateral Pipes

Older homes are at risk for lateral pipe damage and clogging. In homes built before the 1970s, the most common problem is that tree roots have grown deep enough to find water within the joints of lateral pipes.

While the damage can be minimally delayed by routing the interior of the pipes, the roots still remain just on the exterior side of the pipe. In other words, they are still in prime position to cause trouble a few years down the road.

The Trenchless Sewer Repair Malibu Deserves

Traditional sewer repair using a backhoe can cost from several thousand to $20,000 and more. Not only is it expensive, but the work can seriously damage the yard, garage or driveway, requiring expensive replacement or repair.

The new trenchless techniques are called pipe lining and pipe bursting. They are equally durable and come with warranties.

Pipe Lining Method

Pipe lining is also called “cured in place pipe,” where a flexible tube is coated with a resin and then either blown or pulled into the damaged portion of the pipe, then inflated. Several hours later, after the resin is hardened, a new pipe structure is created.

The new lining needs only one vertical hole to be dug and reduces your lateral pipe’s diameter by only about a quarter-inch. This small reduction is not enough to affect waste removal from the home.

Pipe Bursting Method

Pipe bursting, the other new pipe repair method, involves pulling a new pipe through the length of the old, damaged pipe. This movement will fracture the damaged pipe outward.

This method requires that access holes be dug on either end of the damaged lateral pipe. This method might not be possible to perform if the damaged pipe has joints or has already collapsed.
