The Pipe Doctor Plumbing & Drain is your top source for pipe lining in Alexandria, VA, an approach to pipe repair that’s done without excavation. Simply give us a call and we’ll let you know if a dig-free repair process is right for your situation. In many instances, the answer is yes since pipe lining is a highly versatile process that restores all types of pipes internally.
Cured in place pipe service is a cost-effective way to restore pipes affected by age, corrosion, ground shifting, and other common causes of damage. With dig-free pipe lining, your existing sewer, drain, or even water line is restored from the inside. The existing line is spared, which means no digging. This benefit alone is very much appreciated since it means no costly landscape restoration to worry about when everything is done. This can add up to significant savings.
What’s more, we’re often able to complete the CIPP lining process within a single day. We also won’t need to bring heavy machinery onto your property – and the work is often done with a smaller crew, which further adds to your overall savings.
Signs You Need Pipe Lining
It’s not always easy to tell if your sewer, drain, or water lines have sustained damage. For this reason, it is best to give us a call to discuss trenchless pipe lining if you’re noticing any of the following signs:
- Leaks or a soggy lawn
- Foul sewer or drain odors
- Issues with multiple drains
- Repeated clogs or slow draining
How Does the Trenchless Pipe Lining Work?
We start with an initial sewer camera inspection of the affected sewer or drain line. If conditions are appropriate for pipe lining, the next step is to clean out the line, which we usually do with hydro jetting since this is an effective way to get rid of tree roots and other common sewer and drain line obstructions. The next step we take is to prepare the liner by adding a durable epoxy coating to it. The newly coated liner is inverted so the coating can come in contact with the inside surface of the pipe. Heat is sometimes used to speed up the curing process. After the coating has cured or dried, you’ll be left with a smooth, flaw-free pipe, which is essentially a new pipe within the existing one.
