Trenchless Sewer Repair

Pipe LiningTrenchless sewer repair methods, in particular the pipe lining procedure provides plumbing companies with the ability to re-line your broken sewer line as opposed to replacing it entirely. In essence the new liner eliminates all of the leaks, holes, and cracks that were negatively affecting the existing sewer pipes. The process not only fixes the existing problems it prevents future ones from happening as well. In essence pipe lining creates one solid and continuous sewer pipe that completely seals off the pipe joints, which happen to be the weakest spots within the sewer line.

The joints are the connection points that attach each section of pipe to the next one. Tree roots tend to invade the sewer pipes through the joints. As the roots are fertilized by the rich contents contained within the sewer line they quickly grow, and eventually crack the pipes. Additionally there are a great deal of older properties that contain clay and cast iron sewer pipes. These materials tend to crack, rust, and rot, which of course leads to problems within the system.

Whatever the cause the of problem the property owner is responsible for the maintenance of their sewer pipes from the building all the way to the city or town’s main sewer line, which is located under the street. Trenchless sewer pipe lining uses the old pipe as a guide to install the new pipe liner. The process begins by digging a small access hole where the existing pipe begins. An inversion machine inserts a sleeve that is covered in a wet epoxy resin that is specially formulated for the procedure. Within a few hours the epoxy resin cures or hardens to form the pipe liner.

The trenchless sewer pipe lining method removes the need to dig a trench through your yard, grounds, sidewalk, driveway, or parking lot in order to repair the broken sewer pipes. The new liner not only seals the current breaks, cracks, and holes in the sewer line it also restores the structural integrity back to the sewer pipeline. In addition, the new liner prevents future tree root infiltration from occurring. Trenchless sewer repair takes considerably less time than the traditional excavation approach.

The process can be completed in as little as one day. It is also just about half the price of the traditional excavation approach, which absolutely saves property owners a significant amount of money. There are additional benefits as well. Calcium deposits from water and sewage form a coating inside of sewer pipes. Over time these deposits tend to clog the sewer line. The calcium cannot stick to pipes that are lined with epoxy resin, which of course helps to avoid clogs in the system.

Seismic activity in the ground leads to breaks in the sewer lines especially in the joints. This causes both cracking and structural damage. As mentioned above the epoxy liner covers the joints, thereby removing the weak spots in the system. Once the old sewer pipes are lined they will not break due to these seismic shifts in the ground. Trenchless pipe lining is an efficient, cost effective, and fast way to have your sewer pipes repaired.
