Located in a coastal city with a history as long as that of Galveston, Texas, your home may have its own extensive past, and even newer homes contain the homeowner’s memories, a personal history that is no less important. You may, therefore, be understandably wary of addressing pipeline issues with solutions that would result in the partial destruction of your home, yard, or other permanent structures. Fortunately, the experts at your local Sewer Co pride themselves on their minimally-invasive, trenchless repair techniques.
Trenchless Sewer Pipe Repair Solutions & Processes
At Sewer Co, we offer a range of solutions for our customers in Galveston in order to ensure that we have everything they need. Our solutions include:
- Sewer camera inspection
- Hydro jetting
- Cured-in place pipe lining
- Pipe bursting
Sewer Camera Inspection
The first and last step to any repair work is complete knowledge of the composition and state of the sewer line. By using a specialized waterproof camera which feeds real-time, high-definition video back to a display that we can monitor, our Sewer Co technicians can ascertain the size, composition, and condition of your pipeline as well as the extent and cause of any breaks or blockages.
As part of our standard drain cleaning procedure, we use a pressurized stream of clean water to clear out debris and remove grease or calcified buildup. The high-pressure hose and specialized nozzle of our hydro jetter are inserted into a drain or cleanout, allowing the removal of waste without needing to cut into walls or the use of chemicals that may be dangerous to you, your pipes, and the environment. The equipment is fine-tuned by Sewer Co’s licensed professionals to clean any pipeline safely and completely.
Trenchless Pipe Lining
With only one to two required access points, sewer pipe lining is a great solution for corrosion, misaligned pipes, and small to medium breaks in your sewer line. After proper preparation, including inspection, cleaning and drying, and pipe measurement, an epoxy-coated liner is inserted into your sewer line and maneuvered to the damaged region. The liner is inflated to allow the epoxy resin to adhere to and coat the inside of the pipeline. Full function is restored to your sewer pipeline once the resin fully solidifies over the course of several hours.
The entire process can be completed in as little as a day. Avoiding the need to remove and replace your pipeline saves time, money, and the hassle of having a trench run the length of your yard. Just as importantly, the seamless lined pipe left behind by our high-quality repair work will resist corrosion, tree root incursion, and other damage for decades.
Severely damaged pipes or even the pipe system can be replaced with minimal structural damage using the trenchless technique of pipe bursting. Access pits are dug on either side of the section to be replaced and then a section of pipe, topped with a bursting head is dragged through the old pipe. This causes the damaged segment to break apart, replacing it with a brand-new pipe without the need to dig up and remove the entire section.
These methods are all minimally invasive and designed to prevent breaks, avoid tree root incursion, and help your sewage system last years with minimal maintenance. Call the Galveston Sewer Co to learn more or if your pipeline could benefit from our innovative trenchless techniques.
