What Is Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining?
Trenchless sewer pipe lining is an innovative, no-dig solution for repairing damaged sewer pipes. This eco-friendly method involves three key steps to ensure a successful repair:
Epoxy pipe lining
Before our technicians begin their work, we conduct a camera inspection of your sewer pipes. This allows us to assess the extent of the damage and determine the best course of action. The inspection is conducted by inserting a camera into the sewer pipes through small access points, and typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. This gives our technicians plenty of time to carefully evaluate the condition of the pipes and diagnose any issues we may discover.
After inspecting your sewer pipes, our experts will determine if they need to be flushed of debris, waste, and other blockages. If our inspection reveals tree roots or dense clogs, we will use hydro jetting as part of our cleaning procedure. This process uses high-pressure water blasted through a hose and multi-directional nozzle to remove waste and clogs. Hydro jetting is powerful enough to break down tree roots and thoroughly clean the inside of the sewer pipe, washing away waste and preventing future blocks.
Once we've removed the waste and corrosion, the pipe will be restored to its original diameter. Then, we can begin the repair process. This involves using an inflatable tube, which we will coat with epoxy resin. We make sure to apply enough coating to properly fix the inside of the sewer or water line. This ensures a strong and durable repair.
After completing this step, a liner is inserted into the pipe and positioned where the crack, leak or breakage is located. We then inflate the liner with compressed air and force it to expand and fit snugly to the inside of the sewer pipe. The pressure of the expansion transfers the epoxy resin to the sewer pipe, which fills any breaks and seals them. After this step is complete, curing and hardening can take a few additional hours.
Once the resin has hardened, the liner is adhered to the interior of the sewer pipe. This extends its longevity and keeps it working for years to come.
Why Is Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining Effective?
Using trenchless technology to rehabilitate pipes is an excellent solution for property owners. The climate of the Inland Empire (including heat and dryness) can cause waste to build up in sewage systems and produce foul odors, as well as dry out the soil and cause leaks and cracks in pipes. If sewer pipes are exposed to enough heat, they can expand and cause problems if there isn't enough room for them to do so.
In some cases, exposed sewer pipes can even suffer from structural damage due to exposure to UV rays. Trenchless pipe lining can fix all of these issues because an entirely new sewer pipe liner is created within the existing sewer pipe without the need to dig or use water to soften the ground. This process is highly cost effective for property owners, and can save you time, money, and water.
What Is The Average Cost Of Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining.
The cost of trenchless sewer pipe lining from Jim and Sons Plumbing can vary depending on the size of the project and the amount of work needed. Generally, small-scale projects cost between $3,000 and $5,000, while larger projects can range from $4,000 to $20,000. The cost of trenchless sewer pipe lining is determined by various factors, including the condition of your existing sewer pipes, the type of liner used, and the length and diameter of the sewer pipes. Our team at Jim and Sons Plumbing carefully considers all of these factors to provide accurate pricing for our clients.
● The Pipe Lining Material
Some materials, like Orangeburg, are prone to breaking due to their softer composition. Stronger materials, like PVC, are more durable and can last longer. Epoxy serer pipe lining can be used to repair a variety of pipe materials, but in some cases, sewer pipes made of Orangeburg may be too damaged for this method to be effective. Before deciding upon a material, it's important to assess the condition and quality of the sewer pipes on your property to ensure that our repair work is as effective as possible.
● Cost Per Foot
In some cases, the cost of trenchless sewer pipe lining may be based on the length of the sewer pipe being repaired. This is typically the case for very long sewer pipelines. The cost per foot can range from $80 to $250, with an average of around $160 per foot. Smaller projects tend to be more affordable using this pricing method.
