5 Environmental Benefits of Pipe Relining

PlumbermascotPipe Relining

There are several pipe repair methods that may have harmful effects to the environment due to large-scale digging. These excavations which are predominantly necessary in some pipe repair solutions will not only alter the landscape, but also weaken the structural integrity of the property.

It was such a great relief when the state-of-the-art plumbing technology introduces the trenchless pipe rehabilitation. This innovative solution does not only eliminate the exploratory digging, but also offer several environment-friendly advantages. Here are some of the highlighted eco-friendly reasons that the trenchless repair brings:

Rules out Wildlife Disturbance

Most rural areas and small towns are in close proximity to wildlife. Hence, the traditional digging method will not only affect the landscape of the homeowner’s property, but as well as the trees and ground that are usually occupied by wildlife. An eco-friendly alternative would be the trenchless pipe relining. This method only needs to interpolate an epoxy resin or fibreglass liner to the sewer line through one entry point. Thus, it eliminates the need for excavation.

Minimal Disruption and Property Damage

The no-dig method spares your driveways, floorings, and landscapes from being ruined. For public areas such as roads and parks which have a busy surface traffic and utility, excavations are surely inconvenient. Pipe relining eliminates these unsightly trenches that need costly and stress-inducing restorative work.

Reduced Consumption of Resources

The traditional pipe repair method may require a substantial amount of labour and equipment. A diesel-fuelled machine excavator must be operated for several labour days, which consumes a lot of energy and fuel. Further, this method may require several days before it is completed, excluding the restorative work you have to make.

On the other hand, pipe relining can be done in a day, or even just a few hours. Most pipe relining methods use steam, water, or ultraviolet rays (UV) when curing the pipe liner. In some cases of tree root intrusion, the plumbing specialist may have to conduct a hydro jetting to loosen and remove the root feeders and debris. It depends on your company whether the water used is recycled or not.

No Need to Worry about Health Hazards

In a regular pipe replacement, it is not only the damaged landscape and weakened structural integrity that you should worry. Public health safety may be affected by the digging methods since the excavated sewer lines may leach toxic sewage wastes. Traditional pipe repairs typically a restricted access in the working area to avoid water contamination and environmental risks. On the other hand, pipe relining which only require little prep work, one entry point, fast installation and minimized downtime can greatly eliminate your worry of jeopardizing your public health and sanitation.


Pipe relining does not only diminish your hassle and disruption, it also saves your finances. This will also help you minimise your waste materials since purchasing new pipes and other replacement components are not necessary. You will only need the liners.
Furthermore, you are provided with a durable new pipe that is highly resistant to intrusive roots, unyielding to corrosion, and has a lifespan of 50 years. Surely, future repairs are guaranteed not to come any time sooner.
