Pipe Lining In Venice FL Stops Cast Iron Drain Backups and Roots Growing Into Drains
Our pipe lining company in Venice FL permanently restores cast iron drains through a process called “Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining”, or CIPP. There is no need to dig up floors or walls and the pipe lining installation takes about 1 day and costs about half as much as excavation.
Benefits Of Trenchless Pipe Lining
- No digging required
- Less expensive – pipe relining costs about 50% less than excavation
- Save your tile, wood or marble floor surface – it’s usually impossible to find matching floor surfaces that were installed decades ago
- No sewer bacteria in your home – since the drain is not being cut into pieces inside your residence, there is no need to sanitize the property afterwards
- Stay in your residence not a hotel – pipe relining is done from outside, so you can stay in your residence
- Speed – pipe lining takes 1 day, not 3 weeks as for pipe replacement by excavation
How Is This 50-Year Warranty Pipe Lining Installed?
From outside your property we open the pipe, clean out the rust, scale and roots, and then install a new “pipe liner” or sleeve which has been saturated with a special self-hardening epoxy resin. The liner contains a balloon which is inflated for 3 hours while the resin becomes rock-hard. Then the balloon is removed and a video inspection is performed to ensure correct installation. The pipe is put back into use within 1 day. Learn more pipe lining installation details here.

How Strong Is The Pipe Lining?
The pipe liner is a fabric tube made of polyester which is then “wet out” with a 2-part epoxy resin which is mixed together in a certain proportion. In about 30 minutes resin heats up by itself to 180 degrees Fahrenheit due to an exothermic chemical reaction and becomes rock hard.
The resulting new inner pipe liner is so strong that it is a stand-alone pipe, not needing the old exterior pipe for structural integrity. The liner is designed to go under load bearing footers, roads, driveways etc.

How Much Does Trenchless Pipe Lining Cost?
For residential purposes, from $150-$200 per linear foot of lining. It varies by pipe diameter, installation complexity, and customer attitude. For Commercial purposes, $175-$225 per linear foot. Commercial installation would be high-rise buildings, factories, shopping malls etc. These installations are more complex since pipe downtime, even for just 4 hours, usually has an enormous impact on tenants and can cause much economic impact for any loss of use of pipe. Note also, every trenchless pipe lining company will have a minimum charge in order to mobilize their expensive equipment and trained crew.
