If you’re experiencing trouble with your grease traps, sewer system, or water lines, our team Mr. Rooter Detroit is here to help. We’ve got the right procedure to suit every need and budget and will have your business back on its feet in no time.

At Mr. Rooter Detroit, we implement solutions that remove a variety of problems and inconveniences from your home or business, including:

  • Lingering odors of sewage around the drains
  • Stagnant or slow drains
  • Suddenly high water bills, even with regular usage
  • Low water pressure
  • Persistent wet spots on the floors
  • Gurgling sounds in the pipes

Without proper treatment, these problems will only continue to persist and potentially cause major problems such as burst pipes, flooding and water damage, overflowing toilets, and other serious and costly repairs. Ordering an annual inspection and cleaning with our team at Mr. Rooter Detroit a great way to keep these problems at bay, and to detect issues early.

All Mr. Rooter procedures utilize cutting-edge trenchless technology, allowing our work to be minimally invasive with little clean-up involved. Traditional methods need a large, deep trench to be dug to reach and service whole sections of pipe at a time - meaning your parking lot, the foundation floor of your office, or the walkway in front of your business would need to be excavated out of the ground. Using a trenchless procedure, only a small access hole is required to service your whole system, which is what makes our trenchless pipe repair solution so innovative and practical.

While trenchless pipe repair is convenient, it is capable of maintaining the livelihood of your business. During the time repairs are being conducted, water services are shut off, and with traditional sewer system repair procedures taking days or even weeks to finish. This will leave you with unhappy employees and customers, and this downtime causes money to be lost in the long run. But with trenchless pipe repairs, the procedure is completed in less than a day, letting you get back to the important task of running your business.

Additionally, construction jobs are unsightly and can deter customers from entering your restaurant or shop. With all trenchless procedures conducted underground, little mess or post-procedure clean-up is involved. As an extra benefit, you won’t have to pay for new landscaping or freshly poured concrete - trenchless jobs not only give peace of mind but also saves you money in the end.

What Is Trenchless Pipe Repair?

Trenchless pipe repair methods are those that remove the need for digging trenches at a property to repair the pipelines. Traditionally, pipe repair methods required technicians to manually dig through landscaping and then remove and replace the pipes. Trenchless methods are completed underground or within the existing pipeline through a small access point, making them the preferred option for home and business owners who benefit from their quick and tidy effects. Used to repair drains, water lines, and sewer lines, trenchless pipe repair methods are versatile and relevant methods of restoration at nearly all properties. Mr. Rooter Detroit performs two types of trenchless pipe repair: pipe lining and pipe bursting.

How Pipe Lining Restores Pipes

Pipe lining, or cured-in-place pipe lining, is a popular method of trenchless repair, because it is performed entirely within the existing pipeline. The epoxy resin is used to rehabilitate the pipes from the inside within a few hours, making this a fast and easy repair solution. Initially, our technician will perform a camera inspection to evaluate the health of the pipeline and determine if pipe lining is the appropriate method of repair.

The camera and a powerful light are inserted into the pipes through an identified existing access point. Images are sent back to the technician, who can gauge the condition of the pipes and diagnose any overt breaks, clogs, and disrepair. Next, the pipeline will be cleaned with hydro jetting or forced hot air to ready it for lining. Meanwhile, a felt liner is soaked in epoxy resin and then inserted into the pipe, also through the access point. It is pulled through to the desired end point and then inflated with hot air until it hardens to the inside of the pipe, essentially becoming a new epoxy pipe within the old pipe.

How Pipe Bursting Can Replace Damaged Sewer Lines In Detroit

Pipe bursting is a more traditional method of trenchless repair in that it utilizes heavy equipment; however, pipe bursting takes place entirely underground. The aboveground hydraulic equipment uses a pulling machine and rods to obliterate, or burst, the pipes beneath the property and then pull brand news ones into their place. The old pipes disintegrate, making plenty of space for the new pipeline, which can be made from any material chosen by the client. Like pipe lining, pipe bursting preserves the surrounding landscape and building.

The Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Repair

Mr. Rooter Plumbing recommends trenchless pipe repair as the best way for clients to save time and money, while minimizing disturbance to their routines and property. The epoxy resin used during pipe lining is non-toxic and environmentally-friendly. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we can repair both your water and sewer line with pipe lining, thanks to a variety of epoxy resin designed specifically for use in different pipelines. The epoxy pipes that are created during this method last for fifty or more years, resisting both corrosion and tree root invasion.
