Trenchless Pipe Repair Costs 50% Less Than Excavation To Replace Broken/Backed Up Sewer Cast Iron Drains Under Slabs

In the South Florida region a 2,000 square foot house would take 2 months to excavate and replace all the cast iron drains, and costs $50,000-$60,000. The residents have to move out, furniture has to be put in storage, and the floor surface has to be re-tiled etc. To re-line the cast iron drains using our 50-year warranty lining process costs $15,000-$20,000, and takes 3-4 days, and all the plumbing can be used most of the time during installation!

Any type of pipe can be permanently restored 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 2 months as for pipe replacement by excavation

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.
