At The Pipe Medic, we have offered trenchless pipe lining options to the residents of Atlanta for over 8 years. Our technicians who have been performing this task for nearly a decade and state-of-the-art equipment to get the job done, guaranteeing the best results.
Having your pipes lined is an efficient way for you to get your sewer system repaired or replaced with a non-invasive option. We forego the traditional use of backhoes, plows, and heavy machinery to get the job done. We don’t need to tear up your property, including your yard, to get to the pipes externally. With this process, we are able to perform the entire procedure internally. Besides a small access point that is created to insert the lining material, we are able to go through the process with a no-dig method.
To begin the process, we are able to start by inspecting your pipes through a sewer camera inspection to ensure that you are a candidate for the process. If your pipes are in fair condition but soon due for a total replacement, or if you have multiple problem areas that require immediate attention, trenchless pipe lining is for you. Once we decide if your system is a suitable candidate for trenchless pipe lining, we begin the process of cleaning the pipes, making a clean platform for the lining material. This is often done through a hydro jetting session, which forces the removal of waste buildup with strong blasts of water with a specialized hose and nozzle.
At this point, we can employ trenchless pipe lining, and this is done through the insertion of a specially measured liner coated with epoxy resin. Once the liner is pushed through the pipes and cut to fit, it is inflated and coats the inner walls of the pipeline with the epoxy resin. This material is strong enough to last for over 50 years once it hardens, sealing away any cracks, leaks, and holes in the old pipe, leaving behind a new and improved system that will last for many decades to come. The curing process requires a few hours to be completed, and once the coating has completely hardened, the new pipeline will be ready for use.
Not only are we able to save a drastic amount of stress due to ensuring that no digging is necessary and preserving your property, this also saves our customers lots of time. This process can take as little as one day to complete opposed to the traditional excavations that can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on the size of your system and the placement of your pipes. We are also able to leave your property just the way we found it from the outside, except with a brand new sewer system beneath. With everything done internally, we leave you without the hassle of fixing any damage to your property or having disruptions to your day-to-day activities.

If you’re a candidate for trenchless pipe lining, we will be able to repair your entire sewer system one easy process, leaving you with an efficient, reliable, and stress-free network of pipelines for years to come.
