How Trenchless Sewer Line Replacements Have Improved The Repair Process
Trenchless sewer line replacements are no longer wrought with speculation and uncertainty. Traditional, dig-and-replace methods were unclear in execution, often requiring extensive digging across landscaping and in homes in order to locate the problematic pipe. Without a clear idea of where the problem could be, diagnosing the problem alone could take weeks to complete. Trenchless-based work requires only a small access point to repair and replace the pipe, and regardless of the severity of the problem, all work is conducted completely below ground. Lone Star Trenchless doesn’t waste any time with this excessive digging and excavation. Instead, time is saved by conducting a thorough inspection of the interior of the sewer system.
The Steps Of The Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Method
The sewer camera inspection serves as the preliminary step in trenchless sewer line replacements. With minimally invasive equipment and cautionary steps, Lone Star Trenchless can easily diagnose the problem without any risk of errors or inaccuracies. The cameras deployed into the sewer systems are small and waterproof, allowing them to be maneuvered throughout the pipe easily and capture minute details in the quality of the pipeline. The quality of the camera lenses are extremely high and capable of exposing corrosion, cracks, leaks, and other problems that could be unseen through exterior inspections. Once the technicians have properly located the areas of damage that require immediate fixes, the preferred solution can be recommended.
For trenchless sewer line replacements to be effective, especially in the case of cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, the pipe first needs to be cleaned. Any waste or debris that has accumulated or clogged the pipe of efficient water flow is carefully removed with the precision and strength of the hydro jetting equipment. With these tools, waste can be safely removed with pure, powerful blasts of water that is non-damaging to the pipe itself.
After this is finished, the lining process can be started. This repair method allows us to replace the pipe rehabilitating it from the inside with a new liner. The process itself is highly flexible and is perfect for fixing corroded, degraded, or cracked pipes. A liner coated with epoxy resin is inserted into the pipe and once it reaches the target area, it is inflated and coats the inside of the pipe with the epoxy resin mixture. After curing with heat, it’s ready for use – the entire process generally takes less than a day to complete. This method can be applied to the whole sewer system or simply one area, and can be installed in straight, curved, or 90-degree angle pipes. The new liner has a lifespan of up to fifty years, longer than any other pipe material on the market today.
Pipe Bursting As Another Method of Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement
Pipe bursting is employed if the pipeline has burst or collapsed, and in these cases, the cleaning process can be bypassed to allow repairs to begin more quickly. Rather than installing a epoxy-based liner, an HDPE pipe is introduced into the sewer system. To make this possible without digging trenches and keeping the pipes underground, a drilling head is inserted into the system. As it moves throughout the broken pipe, it breaks apart the material and releases it into the surrounding soil. Simultaneously, the HDPE is pulled behind the drilling head as new space is made for it to be correctly installed and take the place of the former pipe. The HDPE pipe, while strong and durable, receives additional protection from the fragments that surrounds it, ensuring that it will more easily resist weather fluctuations and soil shifts.
