A home’s plumbing system is designed to last for 60 to 80 years, sometimes even longer, but preventative maintenance must be a part of the yearly routine. Yearly pipe inspections are the best way to discover potential issues with your plumbing. The Drain Doctor Covina team is equipped to handle your plumbing and sewer repair needs with efficient trenchless solutions.
Prepping Your Pipes for Trenchless Repair
Our professional technicians work under the mindset that we will offer quality trenchless sewer repair services at an affordable rate and not recommend solutions you don’t need. In order to understand the inner working of your sewer line, our technicians begin each project with a thorough sewer camera inspection. By utilizing a real-time view, we can determine the severity of buildup, cracks, invasive tree roots and more. Depending on the condition of your pipes, we may offer one of two trenchless sewer repair services.
Trenchless Pipe Lining
Trenchless pipe lining, or cure-in-place-pipeline (CIPP), can be used when small cracks or holes have formed in the pipe. When there’s no need to replace the entire pipe, our technicians will use this safe, lasting method to repair your sewer line.
A hydro jetting process rids the pipe of any grease and debris buildup. This step helps you keep the majority of the pipe’s original diameter. The technicians will then create a small access hole near the affected pipe. A liner is coated with epoxy resin and pushed through the pipe. Water or air is used to expand the liner, pushing the resin into the inner walls of the clean pipe. Heat is applied for the resin to dry quickly and when the liner is removed, the old pipe is restored to like-new condition with a new lining.
Replacing Your Sewer Pipes
When a sewer line needs to be replaced, trenchless pipe bursting allows for our technicians to complete the job without excavation. The process involves an entry and an exit point for the bursting head that will moved through your old pipe, breaking it into pieces and placing a brand-new pipe where your old one was.
Whether you need to repair or replace a sewer pipe, trenchless sewer repair services from Drain Doctor Covina will offer lasting results.
