How Does The Trenchless Sewer Pipe Repair Process Work?
Trenchless sewer repair solutions have been on the market for decades, but only recently began gaining traction as the preferred method for sewer repair at residential and commercial properties. Unlike traditional repairs, trenchless methods are non-invasive in that they do not disrupt surrounding infrastructure and landscaping and can be completed entirely underground. In the past, repairing your sewer line resulted in damage to your property and additional remediation costs.
Today, Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter helps clients avoid the headache and struggle that accompanied traditional sewer pipe repair methods through the use of trenchless repairs. Trenchless sewer repair eliminates the need for digging and instead employs the use of pipe bursting or pipe lining. Bob Oates technicians have the skills and equipment to complete both types of trenchless repair.
What Is Pipe Lining?
Cured-in-place-pipe lining is a trenchless method that involves using an epoxy resin to replace or renew an existing water or drain pipe. An epoxy resin hardens into a new pipe within the old pipeline, making this method ideal for clients who would rather forego heavy equipment on their property.
Before pipe lining can be completed, the pipeline must be thoroughly cleaned. Our technician will locate an existing access point to the plumbing on the property and perform an inspection. Once the inspection is complete, we use hydro-jetting to clean out the pipeline to ready it for repair. Meanwhile, the epoxy resin is soaked into a felt liner. Once the pipeline is clean, the liner inserted into the pipeline via the access point. It is pulled through and inflated until it hardens into a new pipe.
The benefits of pipe lining extend beyond their convenience. The epoxy pipe is environmentally-friendly and lasts approximately fifty years. Even better, it’s anti-corrosive and root-resistant. When you choose pipe lining, you choose an option that will be durable and last for many years. Imagine only ever needing to repair your sewer line once. This drain and sewer pipe lining service is versatile and capable of fixing a variety of different problems inside of pipes ranging from 2-to-12 inches, as well as pipes made from Orangeburg, cast iron, and PVC, making it a preferred choice for many customers across Washington.
What Is The Sewer Pipe Bursting Process?
Pipe bursting is a sewer repair method that involves replacing the existing pipeline with new pipes of your choice. As a trenchless method, it occurs entirely underground and can install new pipes comprised of clay, plastic, or another material. Like pipe lining, pipe bursting results in little to no damage to the surrounding landscape, making it a great option for anyone seeking a quick, clean, solution.
During pipe bursting, the existing pipes are exploded underground. Hydraulic equipment, including a pulling machine and pulling rods are used to pull new pipes into the place where the old pipes once rested. The new, stronger piping is designed to last for decades. Unlike traditional repairs, there is no need to dig trenches. The technicians use two access points to insert and pull the pipes through, keeping most of the process underground. When pipe lining is not the first choice, pipe bursting is highly recommended. It is also the method of choice for anyone seeking more traditional piping materials.
