Homeowners have long dreaded the prospect of discovering faulty or damaged pipes on their property. Not very long ago, the digging that these kinds of repairs required was a major undertaking that could last days, cost a lot of money and inflict significant property damage. At the least, a large hole was required to dig down and replace a section of the line. At the worst, it meant digging a trench from your home all the way out to the street. However, trenchless sewer replacement now allows experienced plumbing companies to complete these jobs in a fraction of the time and with minimal digging.
Trenchless vs Traditional Sewer Replacement
If you have ever been through the process of traditional digging and trenching, you know that the cost of restoring pavement, repairing landscaping and relocating utilities can be many thousands of dollars.
Trenchless sewer replacement makes it possible to restore a leaking pipe from the inside. A new cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is created inside the existing damaged line. The CIPP is essentially a new pipe which is seamless and waterproof, and there is no damage to landscaping, floors, walls or pavement!
Additional benefits of CIPPs over most original sewer line materials are that they do not corrode, are resistant to tree roots and there are no joints that can separate or leak. They resist minor seismic events and minor soil setting, and there is no buildup of calcium deposits.
Trenchless Sewer Replacement by ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing
Our trenchless sewer replacement services can take one day or less, and can start almost immediately. Because we can avoid the massive digging, you don’t have to spend time arranging concrete demolition, trenching, etc.
We start with a video inspection to assess the condition of the line. You’ll be able to see before and after pictures of the inside of the line.
After hydro-jetting the line to remove all build up and roots, the CIPP pipe will adhere well to the existing line. We use a special 2 part epoxy pipe lining that works for HVAC plumbing, hot and cold water supply lines and sprinkler systems.
The newly created inner pipe is a long-term solution, increasing the life span of plumbing by a decade or more.
We finish with another camera inspection and final quality check for leaks.
