Keep Sewer Repairs Simple with Trenchless Solutions
Trenchless sewer repair solutions have been a key innovation in modern plumbing, for both residential repairs and large commercial sewer system projects. Trenchless sewer repair methods like sewer relining and pipe bursting help reduce the hassle and disruption that come with traditional open-cut sewer excavation, simplifying the process for both contractors and property owners.
In the past, sewer repairs required laborers to dig a trench to access the sewer main line. Although excavation is still used for sewer replacement and sewer installation, many minor repairs for problems like water leaks can be completed with only very minimal digging. Eliminating the digging reduces the time needed, the labor cost, the equipment cost, and the disruption for homeowners and businesses.
Why Would You Need Our Companies Repair Service?
Trenchless sewer repairs offer a number of useful advantages over traditional, digging-intensive approaches to fixing sewer problems:
- Less lawn and landscape damage. Many homeowners put a lot of love and dedication into maintaining lush green lawns and beautiful gardens, which sewer repair trenches can quickly destroy. Trenchless repairs eliminate this problem.
- Simpler process for contractors. Trench digging is a notoriously labor-intensive process, requiring significant manpower and physical strain. For sewer repair professionals, trenchless techniques are simpler to perform, as well as less time-consuming.
- No risk of driveway and concrete damage. When sewer lines are located below a driveway, patio, or another section of concrete, trench-based sewer repair can be seriously disruptive, and lead to significant costs to replace sections of your driveway after the repairs. This isn’t a problem with trenchless techniques.
Trenchless sewer line repair encompasses several different techniques. What they all have in common is a “no-dig sewer repair” approach. The sewer line doesn’t have to be excavated and accessed directly; instead, repairs are completed through smaller, more manageable access points. In most cases, sewer pipe repair contractors begin by inspecting the sewers using remote sewer camera inspection systems. These sophisticated fiber optic camera systems, available from companies like CUES Inc., Insight Vision, and Envirosight, allow sewer service contractors to look inside the sewer.
The cameras deliver a live video feed to a laptop or monitor, looking up close at the cause of the problem. This allows repair workers to distinguish between different kinds of problems, like tree root incursion, channeling, pipe collapse, bellying, and other issues. Once the cause of the problem is identified, it can usually be address with one of several trenchless sewer repair methods.
Cure-in-place pipe (CIPP) relining is one of the most common trenchless sewer repair techniques that we use at All Service Plumbers Drain and Hydro-Jet. It’s great for fixing cracks, leaks, and other imperfections in residential and commercial sewer laterals, as well as larger municipal sewer main lines. It can also be used in underground drain pipes and water mains.
CIPP drain and sewer relining allows us to install a durable liner that patches holes and cracks inside of a buried pipe, without needing to dig a trench for access. For sewer lines, the process can be completed through manholes and sewer cleanouts.
Using a pneumatic bladder, we insert a flexible resin-coated liner that can be cured and hardened in place using hot water, steam, or UV light. Once in place, CIPP liners can last for decades.
Fold & Form Lining
Fold and form lining is another close fit pipe lining system suitable for sewer, water line, and drain pipe repair. This approach uses liners made from PVC or PE plastic, and works best for smaller pipes under 540mm in diameter.
Spiral Wound Lining
Spiral wound lining is a drain and sewer relining option that winds a single piece of PVC together. The PVC locks together to form one continuous liner that fits closely against the pipe walls. It’s suitable for pipes up to 1800mm in diameter, and doesn’t require hot water or steam pressure.
Slip lining is a way for sewer repair contractors to install a new pipe right inside of the old one, with a smaller diameter. The slip line pipe can be pushed or pulled into the host pipe, then grouted to keep it in place.
Trenchless Drain & Sewer Line Replacement
Replacing sewer lines and buried drain pipes sometimes requires full sewer excavation, but in some cases, we may be able to use trenchless technologies like pipe bursting or pipe reaming for sewer replacement. This is especially useful in municipal sewer replacement, as it helps minimize traffic disturbances on streets during the repair process.
Pipe Bursting for Sewer Replacement
Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer replacement option that minimizes the amount of digging needed to successfully replace a derelict pipe. A hydraulic bursting head is used to fragment the old pipe apart, and behind it, a cable pulls a new length of pipe into place. Soil conditions, the presence of a collapsed sewer pipe, previous point repairs, pipe depth, and other factors can influence whether pipe bursting is feasible.
Pipe reaming is another technique for trenchless sewer and drain pipe replacement. Instead of pushing the pipe fragments away into the surrounding soil, the fragments are removed from the ground. This can help reduce the chance of damage to nearby utilities and surrounding soil conditions. Like pipe bursting, pipe reaming depends on many factors concerning soil qualities, previous pipe damage, and pipe depth.
