Because pipes are not in plain sight, it is not uncommon to find them suddenly backed up or damaged, resulting in necessary repair or replacement work. Most people won’t even know that they have a problem with their pipes until it is too late. If it comes to that point, you can certainly count on T.Webber to send our team of trenchless pipe repair experts.
Here are some common issues that would call for trenchless repair:
- Cracked/Crushed Pipes
- Corroded Pipes
- Misaligned Pipes
- Slow Draining Pipes
- Root Intrusion
- Severe Debris/Sewage/Sand/Lime Backup
Understanding Trenchless Pipe Lining
Traditional pipe repair can be a tough and expensive project that can take up to a week to complete. Doing this kind of work involves digging down to a damaged pipe, cutting out the problem section, and replacing it with a new pipe. This excavation can be an enormously destructive process, often resulting in your landscaped yards, gardens, paved driveways, and other structures being ripped apart. Traditional pipe repair also generates large amounts of excavated debris and contaminated waste, which ends up in a landfill upon job completion.
The extensive length of the job can even become more stressful if the pipes carry a potentially harmful substance, like sewage or natural gas. Even worse, property owners usually end up being forced to rip up their lawn or driveway to get into the problem area, spending thousands of dollars and creating quite the eyesore in the process. Imagine living in your house or working at your business without the use of a functioning kitchen or bath. Fortunately, there is a far more efficient, cleaner, faster, and less disruptive alternative: trenchless pipe replacement.
How Can Trenchless Pipe Replacement Help You?
The trenchless experts at T.Webber can reline and repair your existing damaged, leaking pipe without ever removing it from the ground and without excavation and property damage. It sounds too good to be true but it is the ideal method. We return the integrity of your existing pipes internally, using an epoxy based coating or Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP) lining, thus eliminating the need for expensive, intrusive digging.
How the Process Works
- Camera inspection of the pipes is performed to determine the exact site and extent of the damage. This is also helpful for revealing blockages that could add to the headaches damaged piping causes.
- The pipe is cleaned with proper equipment and restored to the original circumference.
- An epoxy/CIPP coated fiberglass sleeve is lowered into the hole until it reaches the damaged site.
- The fiberglass sleeve is then inserted into the broken pipe where it is inflated to fill the damaged area and ultimately form a new section of piping.
- Camera inspection is then re-performed for quality assurance.
