October 17, 2017 in Hydro Jetting

Blocked sewer pipes are a problem no one thinks about before they happen. But, even when facing a crisis, you should refrain from rash decisions and consider the best option for you. The technology of repairing and unclogging broken or blocked sewer pipes has advanced to the point that now it is not only possible to clean and unblock your pipes entirely, but it is also possible to repair any holes without digging trenches and destroying your yard.

In general, sewer pipes are made to last about forty years. But during that time, you are expected to clean and maintain them from time to time. When we talk about common usage of your home sewers system, clogging is usually caused by grease, hair, or some other debris that got stuck inside the pipes and, over time, grabbed more junk, slowing your water flow until eventually it blocks it completely.

Is Trenchless Sewer Repair the Best Option for You?

August 16, 2017 in Trenchless

So the worst has finally happened; you’ve got a failure somewhere along your sewer lateral line. This pipe, which runs from your home to the sewer mainline under the street or out to your septic tank. A break in your sewer pipe is a critical issue and one that cannot be ignored.

A break in your wastewater system means the bacteria, chemicals, and general detritus it carries away from your home are not leaving your property effectively. These contaminants can cause illness in members of family, pets, or do untold damage to your homes foundation slab. The degradation of pipes is inevitable; nothing will last forever buried in the ground thank the moisture, temperature changes, and movement that come with that environment. That said, just because a pipe is broken or degraded, doesn’t mean you’re doomed to digging a large trench in your yard.

Trenchless pipe lining offers a solution to these sorts of pipe headaches without the added pain and cost of having to dig up the whole yard. Essentially, this process works by the insertion of an epoxy-based lining within the walls or void left by your existing pipe. This epoxy coats the pipe completely and hardens to seal any gaps or leaks, leaving you with a new pipe. It may require to minimal digging at either end of the pipe, but nothing on the scale of that of traditional methods of excavations and replacement. Furthermore, this process can only be completed after your existing pipes are thoroughly cleaned and inspected via a sewer video camera. This guarantees transparency in the process, making sure you are getting the right solution for your problem.

Essentially, if your pipes can allow it, and your municipality doesn;t regulate against it, trenchless pipe repair can be the solution for you.
