Trenchless Pipe Repair
Repairing a sewer pipe can be costly, especially if it requires digging up concrete to access the pipe. With a trenchless pipe repair, we can repair the pier or replace the pipe without having to tear up your front yard. In many cases, you will save money by not having to have the concert replaced. Our plumbers can help you access if this is right for your specific situation and budget. There are a few methods of trenchless pipe repair or replacement that can be performed. Below we outline the difference to give you a sense of what your available options may be.
When a pipe is cracking or has minor damage to it, a CIPP pipe lining might be your best bet. This form of trenchless pipe repair uses a felt tube that is saturated in a resin that then hardens as it dry’s. CIPP lining is exceptionally durable and can last up to 50-years. This process is entirely trenchless and can work on almost any type of pipe, including cast-iron, clay, Orangeburg, concert, and PVC pipes.
When your pipes have more severe damage, but you still want the fix to be trenchless, your best bet will be pipe bursting. Pipe bursting replaces the existing pipe while breaking the older pipes up into smaller pieces that get absorbed into the ground around them.
Pipe piercing is a similar concept to pipe bursting. The difference is that with pipe piercing, there is no existing pipe in the ground before the process. Pipe piercing is a simple process that utilizes a piercing tool that is sized to match the preferred hole diameter as well as an air compressor. There is also an entry and exit pit that is needed, which is measured out to 10 times the width of the piercing tool. Once the pit is dug, piercing tools are powered by the compressor. The piercing tool is now positioned into the entry pits making sure it is level to the ground and aligned with the exit pit as well. The tool is then pushed from the entry pit to the exit and is propelled with compressed air. Once this hole is made, the pipe can be placed into the hole.
