How Trenchless Solutions Are More Effective Than Traditional Pipe Repair Methods
As an experienced and reputable plumbing company, Courtesy Plumbing strives to offer the best and most innovative solutions on the market at any given time, which is why we are proud to offer trenchless pipe repair solutions. Trenchless methods have been on the market for decades and recently gained traction as the prefered method for pipe repair at residential and commercial properties.
Unlike traditional repairs, trenchless methods are non-invasive in that they do not disrupt surrounding infrastructure and landscaping and can be completed entirely underground. In the past, repairing your water pipes and pipelines resulted in damage to your property and additional remediation costs.
How Are Burst Pipelines Fixed In Castle Rock?
At Courtesy Plumbing, we use trenchless solutions to repair and replace burst pipes, helping clients avoid the hassle that accompanies traditional repair methods. By using trenchless technology, our technicians are able to avoid digging trenches on your property to access pipes and instead complete the work through existing access points or small holes made to access underground piping. We have two services available depending on the situation we encounter, including:
- Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining
- Pipe bursting
Before the burst pipe can be repaired, the pipeline must be thoroughly inspected and cleaned. Our technician will locate an existing access point to the plumbing on the property and perform an inspection. We will insert a small, but high-quality camera directly into the pipe. We look for clogs, breaks, and holes that may be in the pipe, and the combination of inspection and leak detection services allow us to accurately diagnose any problem in your pipes.
Once the sewer camera inspection is complete, we use hydro jetting to clean out the pipeline to ready it for repair. This involves blasting the debris out from inside of the pipe with high-pressure blasts of water, ensuring that all of the waste is safely washed out of the system and into the sewer main line. Once we can confirm that the pipeline is cleaned of debris, we can move forward with lining it and repairing the damage.
What Is Pipe Lining?
Cured-in-place pipe lining is a trenchless method that involves using an epoxy resin to replace or renew an existing pipe. An epoxy resin hardens into a new pipe within the old pipeline, making this method ideal for clients who would rather forego heavy equipment on their property.
Once the pipeline is inspected and cleaned of organic material accumulation along the interior of the pipe, the liner inserted into the pipeline through the access point. It is pulled through and inflated until it hardens into a new pipe. The new pipe is ¼ inch less in diameter than the old pipe, so output and flow will not be affected.
What Is Pipe Bursting?
Pipe bursting is a sewer repair method that involves replacing the existing pipeline with new pipes of your choice. The pipeline installed through the pipe bursting process can be selected from an assortment of material compositions– whether its plastic, clay, or another preferred material. As a trenchless method, it occurs entirely underground, except for the corresponding above ground equipment. Like pipe lining, pipe bursting results in little to no damage to the surrounding landscape, making it a great option for anyone seeking a quick, clean, solution. Pipe bursting is recommended if the burst pipe has collapsed on itself and there is no need to clean the pipe beforehand.
During pipe bursting, the existing pipes are exploded underground. Hydraulic equipment, including a pulling machine and pulling rods are used to pull new pipes into place where the old pipes once rested. The new, stronger piping is designed to last for decades. Unlike traditional repairs, there is no need to dig trenches. The technicians use two access points to insert and pull the pipes through, keeping most of the process underground. When pipe lining is not the first choice, pipe bursting is highly recommended. It is also the method of choice for anyone seeking more traditional piping materials.
Which Pipeline Repair Method Is Right For Me?
Courtesy Plumbing technicians will be able to recommend the correct method of repair for the pipes at your property, depending on the location and type of damage. The initial inspection will give us the information needed to diagnose and determine the most effective method for repair at your property.
We will discuss your options with you and direct you to the method that makes the most sense. Underground damage specifically benefits from trenchless solutions, but exposed piping may be able to be repaired with welding or manual service. Regardless of how the repairs are performed, you can be confident in the fact that Courtesy Plumbing has the knowledge and equipment to properly replace a damaged pipeline and remediate the issue.
What Are The Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Repair?
Pipe bursting and pipe lining take far less time to complete than traditional repair methods. If you own a business, trenchless repair methods allow you to continue your operations mostly unaffected. As a homeowner, you’ll enjoy more privacy and less interruption. Trenchless methods also won’t leave debris or cause property damage, saving you on remediation costs.
The epoxy resin using during pipe lining is environmentally-friendly and lasts approximately fifty years, so it’s likely to be the last time you replace that specific pipe during your lifetime. Even better, the new liner is anti-corrosive and root-resistant, making it more durable and resistant to common pipeline problems. Pipe lining can be used to repair most existing pipes, including 2-to-12 inch pipes made from Orangeburg, PVC, clay, or cast iron.
