What Are Trenchless Pipe Repairs?
Trenchless sewer repair involves robotic equipment that enters a pipe through an existing port or access point, such as a manhole cover or clean-out hatch. The small robots navigate through the pipe and insert a liner or coating. No excavation is required for trenchless repairs.
Professional pipe relining and other trenchless repair methods correct leaks and corrosion. By stopping leaks, the repairs prevent damage to structures and the environment. Professional trenchless repairs deliver long-lasting results and offer rapid project completion.
Main Causes of Pipe-Related Damage
The most common causes of pipe-related damage addressed by our pipe repair company include:
- Tree root intrusion
- Grease and hair clogs
- Improper flushing of chemicals or hygiene products
- Foreign objects
- Shifted or compacted soil
- Hard water
- Nearby construction or excavation
- Excessive use of paper products
Biggest Advantages of Trenchless Repairs
Trenchless repairs usually take one day to complete. The process makes use of a small crew and requires no heavy equipment. Trenchless pipe replacement keeps driveways, patios, porches, sidewalks, parking lots, and streets intact and preserves your foundation or slab. Your trees and landscaping remain undisturbed. In most cases, trenchless repairs cost less than conventional pipe restoration because of the smaller crew, simpler process, and minimal restoration needs.
Trenchless sewer repair work begins with a sewer camera inspection and cleaning of the pipe. We may use snaking or hydro jetting cleaning methods. The robotic equipment for trenchless repairs includes a camera, GPS, and sensors that relay data to a handheld monitor. On the robot, pullers deploy the pipe liner.
To replace pipes without a trench, we use a pipe bursting head. It breaks apart the old pipe and pulls a new one of the same size or a bigger size into the same position.
Some sewer pipe relining products require a wet-out, which involves the application of resin before deployment. Other pipe repair methods involve applying resin or a powder coating within the pipe. We cure the resin with a hardening agent, which allows it to bond with the pipe. The bonded liner acts as a brand-new pipe within the old damaged pipe. The curing process takes a few minutes to several hours.
