trenchless pipe lining
Posted on: 12 Dec 2013
Out with the old and in with the new; trenchless pipe lining offers dig free options for sewer pipe repair. In the last few years, innovation in pipeline work has allowed contractors to inspect, repair, and clear pipelines without disturbing ground. This saves the homeowner or business owner a lot of cash since repairs can be preformed without ripping up concrete walkways, driveways, or foundations.
The Process Of Trenchless Pipe Relining
New technology has allowed the contractor to rehabilitate pipe made of cast iron, clay, PVC, HDPE, ABS, and concrete using cured-in-place piping methods. Once the pipe is thoroughly inspected using CCTV technology, it is cleaned and the surfaces are prepped for epoxy. The damaged pipe areas are then measured and the product needed is cut to length. The pipe liner is then coated with a heavy duty resin epoxy. The new pipe is then inserted into the damaged pipe using an air pressure inversion device. The pipe liner and epoxy are given a few hours to set and dry. Once the pipe is secure, it is again ready for service.
The key advantages to using this method of repair include but are not limited to:
- No dig repair so less ground around your home or business is disturbed.
- The new lining seals any abnormalities within the pipe that may have gone unnoticed such as small cracks or holes.
- The trenchless repair system takes less time and in turn is more affordable than the traditional dig and replace method.
- The process smooths out offsets at pipe connections for better flow.
