When it comes to managing a crack in a sewer line, there are two main strategies: relining and pipe replacement.
Pipe relining involves inserting a new pipe lining into the current pipe and then allowing it to cure in place, forming a new, sturdy pipe within the old one. This technique is less invasive and often faster than conventional pipe replacement, making it an appealing option for minor to moderate damage, including hairline cracks in sewer pipes.
Pipe replacement requires entirely removing the old pipe and replacing it with a new one. While this method is more invasive and typically more costly, it may be necessary to fix severely damaged or collapsed sewer pipes.
