At Freedom Plumbers Gainesville, we specialize in providing commercial and residential properties in the Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Northern Virginia areas with exceptional trenchless solutions when it comes to pipe repair and replacements. The sewer and drain lines at your home or business were designed to provide your property with fresh, clean water, while safely carrying away wastewater, but a number of factors could inhibit the performance of your pipes. Our team of professional technicians has the necessary experience and equipment to quickly and efficiently address any problems your pipes might be experiencing. You can count on us to provide your property with the appropriate repair or replacement option to meet your unique needs and budgetary requirements.
Common Causes of Pipe Failure
It can be hard to determine the exact cause of your pipe problems due to the fact that most pipes are located within the walls of your building, under the foundation, or under the landscaping. However, signs like frequent clogs or blockages, strange odors coming from your drains, slow flushing drains, low water pressure, interior or exterior flooding, and an increased water bill can all be indicators of a damaged or collapsed pipe. Tree root invasion is one of the most common culprits of pipe failure. When trees grow near underground pipes, they have the capacity to enter your pipes through small cracks or holes and grow, causing blockages and sometimes severe damage like broken pipes. The age of your home or business can also impact the functionality of your pipes. Older piping materials like galvanized steel are susceptible to corrosion, which can lead to broken or collapsed pipes. Complications with sewer and drain lines are almost inevitable over time, but knowing when to repair or replace sections of pipe can help minimize damage and ensure the functionality of your system.
Inspecting Your NOVA Pipes
Before our technicians can come up with a solution for your Gainesville property, we will need to diagnose the cause of the problem. Thanks to advancements in plumbing technology, our team of industry experts are able to inspect the interior of your pipes without the need to dig trenches across your property. Instead, we will locate or create a small access point, which will be used as an entry point for our waterproof, high-definition camera. The sewer camera is attached to a flexible rod which makes it able to inspect the interior of your pipes while proving a live video feed to our technicians. After a careful and thorough inspection, searching every inch of your pipes for holes, cracks, breaks, joint slips, or collapses, we can come up with the best solution for your individual needs.
Types of Trenchless Repair Methods
Along with our sewer camera inspection, the trenchless repair methods we offer at Freedom Plumbers Gainesville are noninvasive, fast, and cost-efficient. Based on the nature of your sewer or drain line complication, the two most popular repair solutions we offer include, but are not limited to the following:
Pipe Lining: Cured-in-place pipelining (CIPP lining) is a method in which a liner saturated with an epoxy resin is inserted into the compromised section of pipe. The liner is then inflated, ensuring that the existing pipe walls are thoroughly coated in the epoxy, which is then cured with heat. Once the resin has hardened the new pipe can be used.
Pipe Bursting: this method is effective for sections of pipe that are severely damaged or corroded. A bursting head is sent through the existing sewer or drain line, breaking up the pipes as it travels through the line. As the old pipe is pushed out of the way, a new pipe made of sturdy, high-quality material is installed in its place.
