When our team first arrives at your property, a small, high-definition camera is sent into your pipelines. This step, while simple, eliminates any guesswork or speculation about where the site of the damage is and guarantees that our technicians will be able to determine the best solution for resolving it.
Once the problem has been properly identified, in order for sewer lining to be effective, the pipeline needs to be cleared of debris and waste buildup. The lining is dependant on a smooth surface in order to adhere properly, and the jagged irregularities caused by rust or mineral patches in the pipelines inhibits this process. A thorough, comprehensive cleaning is possible through our HydroScrub jetting equipment. This tool allows us to blast high-pressure streams of water through the pipelines, forcefully removing rust, clogs, and the buildup of grease or other particles. While this process is easily capable of stripping away residue and breaking down clogs, its strength is controlled by our technicians and ensures that the pipeline itself won’t be adversely affected by the process.
After the pipeline has been completely cleaned and any clogs and waste accumulation along the walls have been removed, it is ready to be lined. A tube is inserted into the pipe coated with a durable epoxy resin. Once it is in place, positioned where the damaged area of the pipeline is, the tube is inflated, allowing the resin to coat the inside of the pipe. Employing a continuous liner is vital, as it ensures a seamless fit that will prevent tree roots from being able to find purchase and create leaks in the fittings. The tube is withdrawn and the resin undergoes a curing period of several hours. Following this, the essentially brand-new pipe is ready for use. With a lifespan of up to fifty years, this treatment is extremely popular due to its quick installation and long-term results.
Once the liner is installed and cured, the pipes branching off from the newly-lined pipe are often covered in the liner itself as well, and we remove the coverings in order to reestablish the pipeline connections. With our state-of-the-art robotic reinstatement equipment, we are able to restore your sewer system to full usability without extra digging or collateral damage. Our sewer lining services are simple but effective, proving to be convenient for customers as well as practical and useful long after the lining was first installed.
