Sewer Repair Innovations With Speedy Rooter
Trenchless sewer repair is a revolutionary repair option that eliminates the need for technicians to dig trenches in your yard or through your flooring. In the past, replacing your sewer line meant accruing the added costs of home and landscape repairs, on top of the sewer repair costs. Our trenchless sewer repair processes are installed underground through utilizing pipe bursting or pipe lining, and at Speedy Rooter, we are proud to offer these trenchless services to our valued clients in the greater Albemarle County area.
Pipe bursting is a sewer repair method that uses hydraulic equipment and a pulling machine to burst the existing pipeline. After the pipeline is burst from the inside and fractured, the new pipe is pulled through the old pipe with a machine, effectively replacing the old pipe. Pipe bursting is a preferable method for sewer repair when the pipe is too damaged to be renewed, and minimal property damage is generated because the process is done within the old pipe and through limited, small access points.
Trenchless pipe lining involves using a liquid epoxy resin to reline the existing pipes, essentially renewing the system. First, the technician locates an existing access point to the pipeline that needs repair. Using this access point, our technicians clean the inside of the pipes with a powerful blast of hot air or water. After the pipes are cleared of any buildup, an epoxy resin is poured in and inflated until it hardens to the inside rim of the pipe. During the curing process, the resin hardens and fills any cracks or breaks, reinforcing the existing pipes while strengthening it and making it more efficient and durable than before. If the pipe is being replaced, the resin will harden to the entire inside rim of the pipe to create a new pipe within the old pipe. The new pipe is a mere ¼ smaller in diameter, which will not interfere with flow or output. The new pipes installed are environmentally-friendly, non-hazardous, root-resistant, and anti-corrosive, and have a guaranteed lifespan of fifty years or more.
We offer our customers these trenchless repair options because they are faster and cheaper methods for restoring sewer lines. Traditional sewer repair methods can take weeks to complete, whereas trenchless repairs take just a few days, and the faster repair time also cuts down on labor costs. Our trenchless repair solutions save property owners money on remediation costs that accompany digging trenches in landscaping and jack-hammering through the flooring. Speedy Rooter always recommends trenchless repair methods when possible, because we believe in offering the best, most innovative and convenient options for our customers.
