Both rainwater leader pipes and sewer pipes that drain waste from your home and route it to the municipal sewer system can prove problematic, to say the least. In fact, when something goes wrong with these systems, it can cause havoc for those who manage or own properties. When the pipelines age, rainwater leaders and sewers can begin to back up and leak back. Other reasons why this might happen include calcification of pipes, root intrusion, or the natural movement of the ground where the pipes lay underneath.

The above-mentioned issues can result in the need for costly repairs and, the damage created often destroys the surrounding landscape of the property/properties in question. If the ground beneath begins to move and the infrastructure begins to crumble, a homeowner might end up paying higher taxes every year to repair the damage to the existing municipal-controlled sewer system.

One must also consider the issue with contamination. When the rainwater and sewage backup it can encourage and cause the development of mold or mildew and it makes a welcoming environment for harmful, nasty bacteria. When there’s an issue with the sewage system of a city, this is problematic as well – the overflow of the sewage wastewater can pour out into city streets, thereby polluting the area and exposing an unknown number of people to the toxic waste, filth, and odor. This same pollution can also backflow into beaches and other waterways depending upon the design of the original crumbling infrastructure.

 Types of Trenchless Technology

Two types of trenchless technology exist: The Inversion Method and the Pull in Place Method of Repair. Let’s explore the benefits of each:

Trenchless Technology: The Inversion Method

With the inversion process of repair, the professional will only need to create a single hole in order to access the underground pipe work requiring repair. The professional will have the ability to install as much as 200 feet of cure in place piping within just a few seconds. The epoxy resin lining is on the exterior of the new pipe material so it can rest up against the interior of the old pipe work.

Trenchless Technology: The Pull-In-Place Method

Two access holes are dug for this process so a liner that is saturated with epoxy resin is placed into position by pulling the new piping through the old broken pipe. A bladder is inserted to cause the expansion of the pipe and the pipe is cured in place inside the former pipe work. This allows for a seamless interior repair and the formation of a new pipe inside the old. Free flow of waters is therefore restored. This technique is sometimes called the PIP method.

Many pipelines have been repaired using trenchless technologies, particularly the PIP method. We know that every situation differs so we would love a chance to speak with you about your repair needs based on your unique situation.
