Ah, pipe lining. A great product/procedure. However, not real practical if you have branch lines. Great for long runs outside. Also happens to be expensive in my opinion. When we "blow" in a liner they average 20-40ft and cost several thousand bucks.

clog or worse?


I wonder if they could just do the maybe 10ft the plumbers said were rough? They said the line that isn't under the house is in great condition. Its gonna cost several thousand if they have to trench under the house to replace the pipes also. I'm just trying to see which is the lesser of two evils. I'm having a little trouble finding smeone who does it around new orleans to get and estimate and ask some q's.
I was wondering if some cities or insurance companies have any problems with it if anyone may know as well.
Thanks again :-)

Consider contacting pipe lining distributors such as Perma Liner. They may have a contractors list. As far as its reliability, liners are installed in municipal lines all the time.
Insurance companies shouldn't complain balk at the product, but have you talked to them? I have found that they aren't too cooperative when it comes to replacing worn out pipes
