How Does The Pipe Lining Process Work At Sewer Co?
Pipe lining is a process that does away with the old traditional version of pipe repair. In the past, the methods used meant tearing up floorboards, backyards or front lawns. Due to trenchless technology, that is all completely avoidable. It is a process in which epoxy lining is inserted into your pipes, and allowed to cure and harden. The end result is a new, sealed pipe inside of the preexisting one.
The Steps Of Trenchless Pipe Lining
First, our technicians will do a pipe inspection. This is performed by a high definition, self-leveling sewer camera made specifically to check piping. By inserting it into the pipe our team is able to measure the footage and diameter of your pipes. More importantly, they can also pinpoint the location and true root of the problem.
After an inspection is conducted, cleaning usually needs to be carried out. This is normally done through the process of hydro jetting. Hydro jetting is where highly pressurized water is pumped into your pipes in order to clear it of clogs, tree roots, or build up in the pipeline. This ensures that when the lining is inserted, it is perfectly able to fit the diameter of the pre-existing pipe.
After excess debris and other issues are completely cleared from the pipeline, its time for the lining. The liner is carefully measured by our technicians so the diameter and length are perfectly aligned. The liner is then saturated with epoxy and inserted into the pipe. This is done either by the Inversion Method or Pull-In-Place Method. The pipe is then inflated to cover the pipeline and seal away damages. It is left to cure either with hot water or steam or left to cure in ambient air temperatures. The end result is a perfect fit of a new pipe in the preexisting one.
