In the past, pipe repair took weeks to complete and left property owners with costly damage to landscaping and infrastructure. Today, trenchless pipe repair methods have taken the market by storm, thanks to the convenience they offer property owners. Sewer Co. has been performing trenchless pipe repair for more than ten years, making us a leader in innovative plumbing solutions and the premier choice for your pipe lining project.
What Is Trenchless Pipe Lining?
Trenchless pipe repair refers to pipe repair and replacement solutions that do not require digging into the surrounding landscape to complete. Pipe lining is a trenchless method of pipe repair that involves replacing and repairing pipes from the inside out with an epoxy resin. It is done through a cleanout, or an existing access point to the plumbing and is much less invasive than traditional pipe repair methods. Pipe lining can be used to repair and replace water lines, sewer lines, and drains at your property.
How Is Pipe Lining Performed?
Before Sewer Co. technicians begin the process of pipe lining, we will perform a professional camera inspection to determine pipe function and identify specific areas of disrepair. All of our plumbers are licensed, skilled, and knowledgeable enough to recommend the right services for your situation. Since pipe lining can be used to repair and replace old piping made from cast iron, clay, Orangeburg, and PVC, it is highly recommended as the preferred method of repair.
When pipe lining is the agreed upon method of repair, the pipeline is thoroughly cleaned and then a felt liner soaked in epoxy resin is inserted through the cleanout. The liner is inflated until it hardens inside the pipe, essentially creating a new pipe within the old.
The Benefits of Epoxy Pipes
The epoxy pipes created during pipe lining are anti-corrosive and root resistant. Due to their durability, they require very little maintenance and last for approximately fifty years before needing to be replaced. Epoxy pipes are also non-toxic and environmentally-friendly, which means they are the perfect choice when it comes to repairing both sewer and water lines, as they will not leach chemicals. During installation, clients enjoy faster service, with the entire process lasting a few days at most, whereas traditional repair methods can take weeks to complete. Once pipe lining is complete, clients are able to resume their schedules unaffected, as surrounding property remains intact, thanks to the trenchless manner of the service. Pipe lining also saves clients money on property remediation costs that are inevitable after traditional pipe repairs.
