What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Our professional team at Freedom Plumbers offer multiple services to meet the repair needs of your home or business in Washington, D.C. As with all our procedures, these repair methods utilize trenchless technology. While traditional maintenance or repair methods necessitated the digging of a sizeable trench in your backyard or underneath the concrete foundation of your home, trenchless procedures need only a small hole to access and service all affected sections of your sewer system.
This translates to less mess, less time until job completion, and less hassle for your family. Remember, the water in your home or office will be shut off while repairs occur. Trenchless repairs usually take less than a day, while a traditional repair could mean you and your family will be forced to temporarily relocate to a hotel until the job is finished.
Read on to find out what kind of trenchless sewer repair might be best for you:
Trenchless sewer pipe lining:
Utilized for cracked, eroded, or otherwise damaged pipes, as well as leaky pipe fittings. Prior to installing a liner, a hydro jetting service (using pressurized water to remove clogs, built-up kitchen grease, or irregularities in the pipe) is performed to adequately prepare the pipe for the liner. A durable liner made of epoxy resin is then inserted into your pipe and cured in place.
With a lifespan of up to fifty years, sewer pipe linings have a greater longevity than any other sewer pipe material on the market! Additionally, the liner can be cut to fit short or long sections of pipe, and can be installed in straight, curved, or 90-degree angle pipes. Talk about flexibility!
Trenchless sewer pipe bursting:
This procedure is used for shattered pipe sections, elderly plumbing systems in need of repair, or for expanding the output of the pipe. Given the vast increase in water usage per person in America in the last ten years, older water and sewer pipes (with a smaller gauge) are often unable to meet the strain of increased use. Sewer pipe bursting is a fast and efficient solution to replacing sections or whole systems of pipe for a home or business.
A bursting head is inserted into your existing pipe, shattering it. A new section of pipe is attached to the back of the bursting head, and is simultaneously laid as the old pipe is destroyed.
