We have been getting a lot of calls about broken pipe in Elizabeth City, NC lately. Not sure if it is our marketing or the fact that people are starting to realize the benefits of our trenchless technology.
We love working with the contractors there! They always show us some cool spots along the harbor and we love it when we find our way to the Outer Banks as well.
Anyways, what can be said about the underground pipes down in NC?
Most pipes all over the country are hitting the end of their life spans. Broken pipes are becoming more and more easy to find, fix an locate with today’s trenchless technology companies.
Cast iron pipes start to corrode and rust. Clay pipes crack and crumble due to shifting soil and aging. Concrete pipes suffer from root infiltration. Electrical conduit lines become rusty and offset. You get the idea!
The problem is that a lot of pipes that are underground are out of sight and out of mind.
Hidden Pipe Problems Are Silent But Deadly
On top of that the drains and sewers may still have water flowing through them even though the pipe is broken. Most companies and facilities do not do regular inspections to their sewer infrastructures and don’t end up realizing there is a problem until a major backup occurs.
The worst part is this can cost your business tons of money without you knowing it. Why? Because of infiltration and exfiltration. Broken pipes can accumulate or lose water and your water bill could easily double or triple.
We have found pipes that are completely filled with roots but water is still flowing. Roots may not seem that bad at first, but left untreated, they can crack, bend and completely separate your sewer lines and drainage systems.
Fix Your Broken Pipes
There are two ways to fix these problems:
- Traditional dig and replace pipe repair
- Trenchless CIPP pipe lining
Traditional dig and replace practices are good when it won’t damage any property and the lines are fairly shallow. Also if you are not worried about shutting down your business or roads this is the best way to go since it will be much more cost-effective.
If you have a business that will lose money from shutting down and/or your property is very valuable trenchless methods are usually your best bet. Slip lining, pull-in-place lining, conduit lining and pipe bursting are all forms of trenchless pipe repair.
Our technicians focus on what is called CIPP pipe lining. If you want to learn more about what we do and how we can save you money visit our site at dynamicdraintechnologies.com. There is tons of information on trenchless methods to fix any type of broken pipe.
