Piping Problems: Relining or Replacement?
When it comes to piping problems, you want to have all the information. If you’ve been urged to replace or reline your pipes, it can indicate a serious problem.
To help make sure you know what you are getting yourself into, Waldman is here. We have outlined the advantages (and explanations!) of replacing and relining your pipes.
What is the difference?
Pipe relining refers to the process of flushing out your pipe(s) and then inserting a type of resin to coat the inside of your pipes to increase durability, fill holes and ultimately seal up the leaks.
A pipe replacement is just what it sounds like, digging up your pipes and replacing them with brand new ones.
Pipe Relining Advantages
- Cheaper, Faster and Less Damaging
- No Excavation Necessary
- Very Safe
- Long Lasting
- Very Effective on Smaller Issues
Pipe Replacement Advantages
- More Effective with Extensive Issues
- Gives You the Ability to See Your Problem Pipes

Sometimes, you don’t have a choice between the two. If your pipes are too far gone, a replacement may be your only option. Discuss your situation with an expert like us.
