What Is Trenchless Pipe Repair Technology, & How Does It Work?
Trenchless technology describes our ability to conduct repairs without digging trenches, as was required with previous methods of repairs. As a result, there are many benefits of investing in the technology, not just for our business but for our customers as well, including:
- More Affordable
Because trenchless technology allows us to restore sewer pipes from the inside, we don’t need to excavate for long periods of time, and this lack of digging ultimately saves our customers money. This is because the need to budget for the large machinery to be used on the property or the landscaping restoration costs after the job is finished are factors that we eliminate from the equation.
- A Green, Healthy Solution For The Environment
Traditionally, heavy excavation on properties could release harmful gases into the air, and the digging was destructive and required major cleanup and restoration afterwards. By limiting the amount of digging, we keep repairs minimally invasive, and this commitment to keeping our work as convenient as possible also benefits the environment as well.
The Sewer Pipe Lining & Repair Process In Akron
At C. Lee Services, we preface all of our work with a precise camera inspection that is also performed with trenchless principles. We access the sewer system through cleanouts or other access points that we create, and this direct look inside the drain lines firsthand informs our repair decisions. There are various factors that we will look for to determine if sewer lining is the preferred solution, including:
- Tree roots creating clogs and obstructions in the pipes
- The pipe has formed a leak or crack
- The pipe is corroded
To eliminate these problems, our team will recommend trenchless sewer pipe lining. To ensure that the lining steps go smoothly, we will clean the pipes with our powerful hydro jetting equipment, which will force out debris and waste through strong blasts of water directed into the pipe with a specialized hose and nozzle.
In pipe lining process, a tube coated with epoxy resin is sent into the pipe and positioned to cover the areas of corrosion or cracks. Once it is in place, the liner is inflated with artificial bladders from the inside, and this forces the tube to adopt the shape of the original pipeline diameter after pressing the material against it. The expansion forces the epoxy resin to fill cracks and leaks while evenly covering corrosion, and once our technicians confirm that the liner has properly inflated to the inside of the pipe, we allow the epoxy resin to harden. This process may require several hours to complete, but it results in the liner seamlessly replacing the original pipe.
