Sewer Lining Pros and Cons



There are many advantages for proceeding with sewer lining compared with a sewer replacement. These include:

  • A low cost alternative to repair any cracks or root infiltration into the sewer without having to excavate or replace the sewer pipe
  • Reduces cost for landscape damages and restoration costs
  • Easy for hard to access areas where excavation is not ideal
  • Prevents water infiltration due to cracks or holes in the sewer pipe
  • Restores structural integrity of pipe


There are some situations where sewer lining is not the ideal choice:

  • Does not fix low stops or bellies in the sewer pipe
  • Does not repair any bad grading of pipe or offset joints in clay piping
