The Early Steps of Water and Sewer Line Repairs With VA Plumbing
Water and Sewer line repairs are a multi-step process that involves careful inspections and cleaning sessions prior to any repair work being done. This ensures that the quality of the work is of the highest caliber and encourages long-term results. The early steps of the repair process include:
- Camera inspections
- Hydro jetting
The inspection and cleaning phases of the water or sewer line repair process are conducted immediately following a VA Plumbing specialist’s arrival to a homeowner or business owner’s property. The inspection involves sending a high-quality camera into the pipes to capture clear footage of the inside of the pipes. With this footage, the technicians can carefully assess the condition of the pipes and recommend the best solution.
If the water or sewer line needs to be repaired through cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, the pipes are thoroughly cleaned with hydro jetting equipment. This cleaning process allows the pipes to be completely cleaned with high-pressure streams of water. The water is clean and filtered, ensuring that there is no risk of the pipes suffering from corrosion or other problems. In addition, the water pressure is strong and forceful, but not to the point of harming the pipeline material itself. Following this careful cleaning session, the pipes can be lined with CIPP lining.
How Water and Sewer Line Repairs Work With VA Plumbing
The lining process involves inserting a liner impregnated with epoxy resin into the pipe. The placement of the liner is important since it will inflate and adhere to the diameter of the host pipeline. Once the liner is in place, the artificial bladder is inflated and presses the epoxy resin that coats the liner to the inside of the pipe. After the epoxy resin is evenly applied to cover all areas of damage along the inside of the water or sewer line, the liner is deflated and removed. The end result is a seamless, jointless liner that will increase the efficiency of the water or sewer system for several decades following its installation. The epoxy liner has an expected life expectancy of 50 years or more, decreasing the chances of future complications arising and providing customers with peace of mind knowing that it will improve the quality of their water or sewer system for many years. Without multiple repairs needed in the future, customers are able to save their finances and instead invest in other ventures, such as regular maintenance of their lines.
In the event that the camera inspection reveals that the damage is severe and can’t be repaired with CIPP lining, the experts at VA Plumbing have another alternative that will be able to restore the water or sewer lines. This other process is called pipe bursting, and for this repair method, a bursting head is inserted into the damaged water or sewer line. This bursting head forces its way through the pipe, fragmenting the diameter and breaking the pipe apart. As this occurs, an HDPE is pulled along from behind the bursting head, allowing for a seamless, simultaneous installation of a new pipeline while the old pipe is broken apart. By keeping the process underground, the property is preserved and the costs of repairs are decreased substantially.
These trenchless solutions are favorable because of their ability be applied in different scenarios and offer results that don’t result in extensive collateral damage or other complications. Because of this, VA Plumbing is recognized as a company that is committed to excellence and high-quality, environmentally friendly results.
