Do you know what trenchless sewer repairs are? If you guessed that it involves some form of digging you would be partially correct. Pipe lining services for Arvada, Colorado are available at Snowbridge Inc. and it does not require giant equipment tearing up your property in order to get to the pipe buried underground. That’s pretty much what is meant by the term trenchless. There is no trench dug in your yard in order to carry out the pipe repair.
How Does Pipe Lining Work?
If you are having difficulty picturing how a sewer pipe can be fixed without pulling it out of the ground, let us explain further. Sewer repairs are funny in a way. That’s because you don’t normally think about them until your plumbing starts to act up and give you the signs that there is something wrong. Those signs can include sewer gasses coming from drains, slow-moving drains and water pooling in places where there should not be any water. All of these clues should tip you off that there is something wrong with your sewer system.
When you call the plumbing professionals at Snowbridge Inc. they will do what is called a pipe inspection. It involves digging. However, they only need one or two small holes at the locations of the pipe connections. Once they reach the pipe connections a small camera is inserted.
Start with a Pipe Inspection
This camera provides an interior view of the sewer pipe in question. The video will show a clog, leaks, cracks and any other kind of damage that is taking place plus it will help the plumbing team in determining the overall condition of your sewer pipe. This is not possible any other way short of having to ruin your lawn and garden by digging it up to get to the pipe so trenchless methods are far kinder to the environment. If there is a leak or crack one trenchless solution is pipe lining.
A Better Way to Repair Damaged Pipes
Pipe lining involves an epoxy-coating sleeve-like item that gets fed into the sewer pipe. Following a curing with hot water or steam, the sleeve hardens and becomes a solid interior lining within the sewer pipe.
This is completed without the need to pull out and replace the sewer pipe. It is also completed without having to disturb your landscaping. The trenchless repair will cost you less than a dig and replace type one and is going to last far longer than a traditional excavation repair.
Trenchless repairs have several more benefits and they include the fact that most of them can be completed in a shorter period of time – often within a day – which reduces the inconvenience on you and your family. Plus, trenchless repairs can be completed without having to interrupt your water service as well.
