Pipes are durable, but they don’t last forever. Tree roots can crack the exterior, corrosion might develop as time goes on, and blockages can build up when there is poor maintenance of underground systems. With significant damage, it’s important to work quickly to resolve the problem.
Local Sacramento plumbers from Express Sewer & Drain use lateral reinstatement techniques to clear blockages and resolve the flow of waste through pipes so homes and businesses can get back on track.
Lateral reinstatement is a key part of the cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining process, which is often used to repair pipes from the inside. During the lining process, the main sewer pipe from a home (the "lateral") is covered and closed-off. Once the CIPP liner is cured and the main sewer pipe is reopened, home laterals need to be cut open. This process is called lateral reinstatement.
Clogged pipes can lead to water backup, health issues, and high water bills. When the integrity of a pipe is jeopardized, restoring the quality is critical to fix issues in your home or business. For effective solutions, be sure to work with experienced professionals who are highly knowledgeable in the types of sophisticated equipment that are needed for reinstatement processes.
Sacramento CIPP liner installations require an array of sewer cleaning and maintenance equipment to remove blockages effectively. These tools include:

In the past, the only way to unclog or repair underground pipes was to dig them out of the ground and manually clear the problem. This was highly invasive and caused significant damage to the land around the pipe. With trenchless technology, repairing main sewer pipes is much more efficient and greatly reduces the amount of harm done to the surrounding land.
To restore the functionality of the piping system after CIPP liners have been installed, the lateral must be cut open to allow homes and businesses access to the main sewer line. The use of CIPP liners cuts the flow of wastewater to the lateral connections, meaning the sewage has nowhere to go and can cause significant blockages.
Lateral reinstatement is completed in a few simple steps:
The lateral reinstatement process is only part of cured-in piping procedures, but it is an important step to restore the quality of local sewage systems in the Sacramento area.
