Difference Between Pipe Relining and Pipe Replacement
July 29, 2021

Encountering any kind of problem with your sewer or drain pipes is something you never want to think about—especially when you are not prepared for what comes next. Luckily, there are great options for remedying the problem.


The biggest problem comes when deciding which option is right for you, lining the pipes as a repair solution or replacing the pipe completely. Below, Sewer Surgeon offers some of the benefits of each so you know what to expect in the process and how to best move forward in your situation.


Pipe relining allows you to fix the problem without having to remove and replace the entire system. Instead, we use professional equipment to find the problem, prepare the pipe for the liner, and install just the amount necessary to fix the problem. We offer trenchless pipe lining so we can perform this service without having to dig up your yard!

The pipe liner is cut into a specific length allowing you to fix only the problem area. This is perfect for situations where you may have separated joints, cracks, or problems with the pipe’s structural integrity.


With trenchless pipe replacement, our team will come in, expose the sewer line, break through the existing pipe, and install a brand new pipe. This is a process that allows us to remove the problem pipe with ease, while providing you with a new pipe that is tough and flexible.

Pipe replacement is ideal when you experience significant problems across multiple parts of the sewer line. If your pipes are deteriorating, back falling, or you find that there are collapses in multiple areas, replacing the entire pipe may be the right option for you.


Determining which option is right for you is determined on the exact problem you have. Our team at Sewer Surgeon can come out, find the issue, and offer the right solution for you. With our Sydney pipe experts, you’ll get the right fix without worry.
