Advantages of Trenchless Repairs
We usually recommend trenchless pipe relining for water and sewer line repair because of its many great benefits that conventional repair approaches cannot match. With a few pieces of equipment and a small crew, you can count on us to complete the job quickly, typically within 24 hours. As a result, you can save a considerable amount of money and time. In cases of severe damage to the pipe line, we recommend going with a full trenchless pipe replacement procedure.
Trenchless pipe replacement is also eco-friendly. Besides being a “no-dig” method, epoxy coatings, special bursting heads, and pipe liners don’t produce carbon emissions. Also, it doesn’t create any waste because we don’t have to dig up the existing pipe and contribute to landfills.
In addition, trenchless sewer pipe relining prevents issues like corrosion, clogs, and tree root invasion from recurring. Thanks to the epoxy sewer pipe lining used in this pipe rehabilitation method, it delivers long-lasting results, giving you peace of mind learning that your sewer pipe system will remain in good working order for years to come.
Our Trenchless Repair Process
Before proceeding with trenchless sewer line repair, we will need to perform a sewer camera inspection to identify any problems with the pipe in question. We then clean the pipe to make sure that the repair process goes smoothly. We usually do this through hydro jetting, an eco-friendly cleaning method that relies on highly pressurized water to remove debris from the pipes.
To complete the lining process, experts from our local pipe repair company will insert a tube coated with an epoxy liner into the pipe. Once it hardens, it creates a new pipe inside the original one, thanks to the epoxy pipe coating equipment we used. Finally, we perform another camera inspection to confirm that the newly created line is smooth and flaw-free.
A key requirement for the pipe relining procedure is that the damaged pipe must be stable to support the liner. If it’s not, we may recommend pipe bursting, which is done by breaking up the affected line and replacing it with a new one.
