Park Support

National Park Service Sewer and Drain Pipe Lining companyOur technicians were able to help maintain the fountain pipe lines and repair them completely with our trenchless CIPP technologies.

Our services offer a great deal of park support to keep visitors happy and out of harms way during the pipe repair process.

We are able to do this because our sewer repair contractors can:

  • Minimize unsafe facilites
  • Replace pipelines with zero dig technology
  • Preserve infrastructure
  • Reduce downtime
  • Save money
  • Work within state grants and budget guidelines
  • Preserve natural and historic cultural resources
  • Offer alternatives to compare plumbing costs of traditional pipe repair contractors

Geography and Natural History

Located in the Potomac River and entirely inside of the District of Columbia, this monument features a beautiful fountain with a statue in the background. Paul Manship sculpted four large stone monoliths with some of Roosevelt’s most famous quotations and two large fountains on the island.

This island is constantly threatened by tidal flooding due to storm surges and large amounts of rainfall affecting many of the islands piping and plumbing infrastructure.

Access

The Island is only accessible via a footbridge and northboud lanes of George Washington Memorial Parkway. This makes large scale pipe repair jobs difficult to manage.

Our mobile pipe repair unit is the perfect fit to repair the Islands pipeline infrastructure. Our system includes many high grade CCTV pipe inspection systems that provide high-quality resolution specs and videos to our contracting partners.

Also, our pipe cleaning and clearing unit is fitted with some of the country’s most advanced jetting nozzle systems available. Depending on the situation our technicians can clean and clear any type of piping problem with ease.

The robotic reinstatement cutter is able to break through any collapsed pipe or concrete protrusions within the line.

CIPP Pipe Lining

The CIPP pipe lining process repairs pipe from the inside out without having to dig up the pipes and replace them.

  1. A felt liner is saturated with a two part epoxy and then inverted into the broken or damaged sewer pipe or pipe line.
  2. Once inside the line, a bladder filled with hot air or water is inserted and inflated to force the liner against the walls of the existing pipe.
  3. Once the liner is in place the epoxies begin to cook and cure in place in a matter of hours.

This forms a brand new, jointless and seamless pipe within a pipe. The rate of flow is greatly increased and any infiltration or exfiltration is completely eliminated.

Chilled water line repair and replacement without digging

Chilled water line system repair condensors

Rehabilitating existing water lines is crucial to maintaining a healthy chilled water system in large buildings. We installed (4) 50-foot long, 8-inch liners replacing the existing chilled water lines at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach, VA.

Chilled Water Line Repair

Chilled water system diagramThe water lines went from the outdoor condensers under the asphalt parking lot and concrete slab into the mechanical room. We repaired the supply and return pipes with CIPP liners.

These pipes bring in chilled water into the building to cool the building and it’s occupants. This chilled water unit, also known as an AC unit is often used to cool a large building’s air and equipment.

Types of Chilled Water Line Systems

There are two types of chilled water line systems:

    • Site Generated
    • Utility Generated

Chilled Water System Rehabilitation Practices

When it comes time to replace the condensors on these chilled water units it is a common practice to renew the entire piping infrastructure. This has been a major problem in the past due to the large costs of excavation.

Sewer Line Repair

cipp repair chilled water lineOur trenchless technology provides an extremely cost-effective and time saving procedure to rehabilitate existing piping infrastructure with cured-in-place pipe lining. CIPP is one of the newest plumbing repair methods on the market to date. Pipe lining is significantly faster than traditional excavation plumbing repair practices.

Plumbing Repair

When it comes to finding a plumber that can tackle this job there are a few types of plumbing repair methods to choose from:

  • Traditional Dig-and-Replace
  • Trenchless Pipe Lining or CIPP
  • Slip Lining
  • Sectional Point Repair

Each method has it’s advantages and disadvantages. With traditional dig-and-replace, if there are no major structures between the surface and the piping infrastructure, digging and replacing is usually the most cost effective way to replace aging and broken pipe.

Trenchless pipe lining, slip lining and sectional point repair are all newer methods that utilize trenchless technology.

CIPP involves inverting liners into existing lines and curing them in place with hot air or water. This method can offset the costs of major excavation and downtime. Since there is no digging involved, business can continue as usual and existing infrastructure is completely preserved.

Pipe lining also increases the rate at which water travels through the pipe by at least 20% making for a much more efficient system.

Sewer Repair Companies In Virginia for Home or Business

Old damaged pipes cut out by plumber

CIPP SAMPLESThere are many sewer repair companies in Virginia. If your sewer is clogging and backing up or you are having drainage problems, pipe repair can help fix it. There are many reasons why you may need to call a sewer repair expert.

Calling a Professional Plumber

  • Constant Backups
  • Leaking Pipes
  • High Water Bills
  • Infiltration/Exfiltration
  • And more…

All of these problems can leave you searching for help. If you own a business, property or even an industrial plant, losing money to leaking water pipes can cost you thousands of dollars. Sometimes you don’t even know that this is happening.

A professional plumber can investigate your drainage systems and give you a detailed evaluation of your piping infrastructure’s condition. A trustworthy company will give you a copy of any pipe inspection videos taken during the evaluation.

Why use trenchless technology?

Old damaged pipes cut out by plumber Our sewer repair techniques are very unique. We can repair or replace a pipe without digging. What we do is evaluate the pipe with a CCTV pipe inspection to see any problem areas and connections. Once we have reviewed this we can see what we are dealing with.

If the pipe needs to be cleaned we have an industrial strength waterjetting machine that can clean an clear any type of blockage or build up. Sometimes the pipe can have massive amounts of rust build up from old age so we use de-scaling nozzles to remove the rust.

If it is some type of sludge build up from grease or oil or any other type of blockage we have a whole arsenal of nozzles that can degrease and remove blockages.

Aging Sewer Systems – Why Should You Care?

Aging sewer systems can also face problems such as cracking or shifting. This can offset joints and create openings that can become infiltrated with roots and various other debris. We have found all kinds of things inside of pipes and repairing them is crucial to maintaining a healthy sewer system.

Most sewer repair companies do not offer trenchless pipe repair and will excavate your property to remove the old pipe. Once they replace the pipe they will fill the holes back up and replace any flooring or objects that were above ground.

Did you know that you don’t have to dig to replace sewer pipes?

Instead of digging up your pipe what we do is insert a sock like sleeve into the pipe with our inversion machine. Once the sleeve is inside the pipe we put another tube inside of that and blow it up with hot air or water. This holds the liner material against the wall of the old pipe allowing it to cure in place and create a brand new pipe inside of the old pipe without digging. This can save your building from having to shut down. We can repair your pipes while you work!

Summary:

This article written by Scottie Dayton features Dynamic Drain’s targeted approach to fuel rapid revenue growth. Owner Nick Santoni, Donald Libby and Wes Fogleman work on a job at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.

This article reveals Nick Santoni’s inception of Dynamic Drain Technologies and it’s rise to conquer high-profile projects including lining pipes at the National Gallery of Arts, The Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Capitol Building, Postal Service Buildings, University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA and Theodore Roosevelt Island. Military bases such as the ever popular Quantico made the list of major plumbing jobs as well.

In June 2012, Santoni hired Mark Kolodziej as an SEO Marketing Consultant to facilitate search engine optimization marketing winning new business through online advertising. This approach doubled the company’s revenue within six months. Marketing and sales are a part of Santoni’s lifestyle. His team’s attention to detail has contributed greatly to his success by earning the trust of contractors to bring him in on their jobs. His full and part time employees clean, inspect and rehabilitate pipes using the ambient cure Perma-Liner lateral system or hot-water cure MaxLiner system. Without worry he can send in his Vivax-Metrotech V Push cameras and trailer mounted Mongoose 184XL sewer jetter with nozzles from Stone Age to inspect clean and clear any pipeline. Then RS Tecknik pneumatic reinstatement cutter will re-establish any connecting laterals after the pipe has been relined.

Success with innovation includes the MacGuyver award for fashioning a push-rod cable system with high-powered magnets to retrieve forks and other silverware. Other sewer machines and hydrojetters wouldn’t budge the metallic debris created in the mess halls that serve thousands of military personnel per day. They have also floated cameras through missing inverts by carving up foam footballs and fabricated custom welds to remove scale from sharp bends.
