When your property’s sewer line has begun experiencing problems like leaks and offsets, repairing it is essential to keeping your pipes operating hassle-free and enjoying all the benefits of your home’s plumbing.
Often, shrubs or trees have grown directly over the location of sewer lines, or pipes are buried under patios, sidewalks or driveways. In these cases, a full sewer excavation can extensively damage these fixtures and decrease your home’s property value.
At Cole Plumbing, we are homeowners too, and we know how much money and time you have invested into your yard. That’s why we are proud to offer a far less invasive method called trenchless pipe lining for our customers in Alabama.
What Is Trenchless Pipe Lining?
As you may be able to guess from the word “trenchless,” the innovative techniques associated with pipe relining mean a dig-free repair process for you. Cured-in-place pipe, abbreviated CIPP, repairs underground pipes using an inflatable polyester lining material. Plumbing technicians who specialize in CIPP can use this method to patch leaks and reinforce damaged pipes from the inside out.
Relining your existing pipes is a far superior option to replacing them completely. With our ability to line any type or diameter of sewer pipe, we can quickly repair your underground pipes with minimal disruption to your property and your lifestyle.
A Closer Look at the Pipe Lining Process
The CIPP liner is made of a durable fabric that is soaked in liquid epoxy resin. These types of liners are not only highly flexible, but are also extremely strong when they dry, resulting in a seamless and joint-free new pipe that will last decades and provide improved water flow.
The first stage of any trenchless pipe repair project is to conduct a video camera inspection of your pipes, which allows our technicians to assess the condition of the line, pinpoint all the trouble spots and make sure our repair will resolve everything effectively. We then use a process called hydro-jetting to scour the interior of the pipes with water and prepare them for the pipe liner.
After completing the cleaning and video inspection, we use our specialized pull-in-place lining technology to insert the liner into your pipe. We then inflate the liner, which presses the coating against the walls of the existing pipe to seal any cracks or gaps. After the epoxy cures, it creates a brand-new pipe within your old, damaged one.
After we remove the inflation tool from your pipeline, we can then reconnect it to your sewer system, so you can begin using your plumbing fixtures again.
When you choose non-destructive pipe repair with trenchless lining, there is no need for heavy equipment all over your property, and our expert crew can complete a job that used to take weeks within a fraction of the time. As a bonus, trenchless repairs are more environmentally friendly because they result in less pollution and fewer toxins being released into our atmosphere and groundwater.
