When sewer lines are damaged, it can be an expensive and messy affair. Thankfully, Plumbers Aurora CO can repair your pipes without digging up your yard.
This is a technique called trenchless sewer repair. It involves lining or replacing your damaged sewer line with new pipe sections.
Pipe lining is a trenchless sewer repair technique used to seal cracks and leaks in your drain pipes without the need for yard excavation or tree removal. This process can help to increase the lifespan of your sewer system by replacing damaged piping with new, tough pipe tubing that is up to four times stronger than the original.
The lining procedure starts with a drain inspection camera to assess the condition of your sewer system and determine whether pipe lining is a good option. Then, a technician will remove any debris and roots from your drain pipes to ensure they’re clean for the lining process.
After the technicians have made sure your drain pipes are clean, they’ll insert a sleeve that has been saturated with a special self-hardening epoxy resin into your pipe. Once the sleeve is in place, it’s inflated with air to harden it and create a new pipe within your existing line.
This cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) technique can be used to repair any size sewer pipe, even those that have a lot of obstructions or large cracks. It can also be used to replace a pipe with a smaller diameter than its current size if the damage is minor.
When you’re choosing a contractor for your pipe lining project, it’s important to find one with a good reputation for quality work. This way, you’re guaranteed to get the best possible results.
Trenchless pipe lining is an effective solution for any residential or commercial property that has broken sewer lines. It’s a faster, more cost-effective alternative to trench excavation and reinstallation.
It can also save your landscape from destruction by avoiding digging up a driveway or sidewalk, which is an expense that most homeowners don’t want to incur.
Once your sewer pipe has been lined, the lining material will harden within the pipe, creating a new sewer pipe that’s up to four times stronger than the original pipe. The lining can last for decades with proper care and maintenance.
During the process, it’s a good idea to limit water use and avoid using a sump pump. This will prevent water from accumulating in your sewer line and back flowing into your home.
Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer repair technique that replaces broken or damaged sewer lines without the need for heavy excavation. This method is ideal for homeowners who are looking to avoid the expense and time of digging a trench in their yard to replace pipes.
This process is typically done in conjunction with a lateral lining. A pipe bursting system includes an expander head, a cable, and a winch. These tools are used to pull a new pipe through the old one without any damage to landscaping or property.
When choosing this type of repair, a technician will first inspect your sewer line using a CCTV camera to assess its condition and look for blockages. If the problem is too large to be fixed with a lateral lining, we’ll instead use pipe bursting to get rid of the damage and replace your old sewer line with new HDPE pipes.
In most cases, this can be done in just a day or two, compared to a typical trenching and digging job which can take days or even weeks. This allows us to save you money on the repair and also eliminates any collateral damage that might occur with a traditional trenching and digging job.
The process starts when we dig two small pits (around 4ft x 4ft) to access the damaged pipe. Once we’ve done this, we’ll insert a cable into the old pipe and then pull a bursting head through it. This breaks the pipe into many small pieces (bursting).
