How to Know When It's Time to Reline Your Pipes

Our homes rely on a plumbing system to work efficiently and thoroughly. Without a proper plumbing system, serious health risks and structural damage may occur. What happens when the aging pipes in your home need to be relined, though? Do you know how to tell when it’s time to reline the piping system? As a homeowner, these are important tasks to consider. Your family and home may depend on quality services such as pipe relining.

Common Signs

Seeing as the majority of plumbing pipes are buried underground, there are very few opportunities for homeowners to examine the system firsthand. In fact, it’s most likely impossible that you’ll inspect the pipe in person.

However, there are signs to watch for when your plumbing pipes require maintenance or need to be relined professionally. For instance:

  • Water backup
  • Low quality of water
  • A nearby tree that may puncture the pipes
  • An odd odor in the yard
  • Gurgling noises from the toilet
  • Clogs, rust, or debris
  • Sludge in the shower or tub

If you notice these signs, do not hesitate to call for professional plumbing services. Acting fast could save your system and your finances.

When to Reline Pipes

When it comes to the right time to reline piping, most homeowners immediately think of the summer break. With clear weather and a gentle breeze, summer seems ideal for outdoor plumbing work. In reality, late spring or early fall are both ideal seasons to perform pipe relining. These are the times of the year when the soil is softest. Of course, pipe relining could be done at any time of the year – it’s just more challenging when the soil is hardened or rough.
