If you are having pipe lining done to your sewer lines, then this is the process where you are having a pipe created within the existing pipe in your sewer system. It is done by inserting special epoxy resins that is able to create a very structural strength within the pipe, and it is able to do so without causing any damage to the floors, interior walls, structures, streets, sidewalks, or the landscaping.
If you are going to have pipe bursting done within your sewer lines, then this means that the pipe is replaced with a high density polyethylene pipe. This entire process works by pulling specific tool, known as a bursting head, through the pipe that is in need of repairing, and it then breaks the pipe into pieces, which is called bursting, and it pulls the new pipe in behind it and sets the pipe in place. It is one of the most preferred methods of replacing or repairing sewer pipes.
