collapsed pipe for pipe lining Oro Valley, AZ

At RAM Plumbing, we highly recommend trenchless sewer repair in Oro Valley, AZ, for addressing many types of pipe damage. However, it is not suitable for all situations. Keep reading as we explore some scenarios where pipe lining may not be the best solution.

The Pipes Are Misaligned

If the damaged pipe is misaligned, with sections that are offset or at different elevations, it may be difficult to insert the liner. The liner may also fail to cure correctly during trenchless pipe lining, leading to further damage.

The Pipes Are Severely Damaged

Pipe lining can fix minor to moderate damage in pipes, such as cracks, leaks, and corrosion However, if the pipe is severely damaged or has collapsed, pipe lining may not be effective. In these cases, digging up the pipes and replacing them altogether may be a more practical option.

The Affected Pipe Is Close to Utility Lines

If your sewer line is close to utility lines, trenchless pipe replacement may not be viable. Pipe bursting, for one, uses a bursting head to break down pipes and push the fragments out of the way to pave the way for new pipes. This can pose risks to nearby cables or pipelines.

If you suspect anything wrong with your sewer line, it’s crucial to consult with a professional like RAM Plumbing to assess your pipe’s condition and recommend the best course of action. Get in touch with us today to schedule an appointment.
