A trenchless sewer repair doesn’t require us to excavate the entire pipe. Instead, we use an existing opening or access point to launch our equipment. In some cases, we must create a small exit point for the robotic equipment. The repair process effectively restores the pipe to a like-new condition.
Common Causes of Pipe-Related Damage
Some of the most common causes of pipe-related damage that require a trenchless pipe replacement or repair include:
- Tree root clogs
- Foreign objects
- Cracks and offsets
- Shifted or compressed soil
- Mineral buildup
- Groundwater pressure
- Improper flushing of chemicals, grease, or excessive toilet paper
What Sets Trenchless Repairs Apart
With sewer pipe relining, you don’t have to deal with the disruption of tree removal, digging, or concrete damage. This reduces the total cost of the project and minimizes project completion time. Trenchless repairs allow you to keep your doors open, so your business won’t have days or weeks of downtime associated with conventional sewer repair or replacement. The materials we use for trenchless repairs offer a 50-year lifespan, which equals that of a brand-new pipe.
We start all repairs with a sewer camera inspection. The camera provides us with key info about the problem and its size, extent, and location. Our technicians invite you to watch the inspection, and we explain our findings and our recommendations for repairs.
For pipe relining, we launch our robotic equipment into the pipe entry point. The robot pulls a liner into place. Once we verify the liner’s position, we apply a hardening agent to the resin within the liner. The resin cures within a few minutes to a few hours.
To do pipe bursting, we attach a bursting head to the robot. The equipment breaks apart the old, damaged pipe. At the end of the robot, an attachment pulls a new plastic pipe into place.
