Trenchless pipe repair has created an alternative to traditional pipe replacement. Traditional pipe replacement requires more time, more money, more mess and more damage to your yard. Lining differs in that there is much less digging, so that it takes less time and manpower to complete. Lining is where a pipe is created within an existing pipe. This pipe is created out of a special epoxy and maintains the strength of a new pipe without damaging the existing structure or landscaping.
Our pipe liner creates a pipe-within-a pipe to restore failing drains and sewer lines. This is done in a way that saves our customer time and money. By inserting our epoxy into existing pipes we are able to repair piping systems and can even traverse missing sections of a pipe. This is a long-term solution for leaks, breaks, blockages, root intrusion, calcium build-up, water damage, mold, sewer backups and flow capacity.
Cured-In-Place-Pipe is environmentally friendly. The process reduces waste during installation. Less equipment on the job means less energy use and less emissions. Epoxy pipe lining creates no waste for landfills and generates no carbon emissions during development. Lining prevents heavy metals from leaching into drinking water and stops leaks and breaks in sanitary lines that could seep pollution into groundwater. We strive to create the smallest possible part job site and the shortest installation of any small-diameter lining system. Our process is less disruptive, better for the environment and better value for our customers.
Most structures built before the early 1970’s had sewer lines composed of primarily cast iron and clay. The problem we encounter most in these lines is cracking and the pipe rusting out. Another common problem with clay pipes is root intrusion at the joints and cracks.
Root intrusion into a sewer pipe is reported to cause 50% of all sewer blockages. Interference of trees into sewer is more likely to occur in older systems and cracked pipes. Contributing factors to damage include older pipes with joints, shallow pipes, small-dimension pipes and fast-growing tree species.
Calcium deposits form a crusted coating called calcification, which clogs up pipes and drain lines, especially when hard water is in use. Once pipes are lined with epoxy, calcification is no longer an issue, because it cannot adhere to the walls of the new epoxy barrier pipe.
Major seismic activity can cause breaks in sewer lines. However more frequently minor seismic activity causes cracking and structural damage at the joints. Not only will our epoxy lining solve this problem, but it will also prevent future problems as well.
We have saved many drains with our process. We realize that every building and project is unique and our installers have the experience and technical knowledge to meet your specific needs, regardless of the depth of the pipe or the acidic nature of the location.
