There are at least two general ways to conduct sewer repairs in any type of property, whether it is residential, municipal, industrial, or commercial. The first method that was first introduced was the traditional way that requires excavation in most cases. The second method is the modern trenchless technology that requires minimum to no digging.
Costs for sewer repair vary and will depend on the damages. The methods for each type of repair are also different. For the traditional method, technicians will need tools and equipment like a jackhammer, a backhoe and experienced men to operate them. There is only one way of doing the project using this method and that is to dig and repair or replace. The trenchless sewer repair option, on the other hand, does not require much heavy equipment. Using the trenchless technology method of sewer repair does not require a lot of manpower. The work can be done by 2-3 technicians. Compared to the traditional method, this modern way of repair offers at least three options, which we offer at The Pipe Medic.
Cured In Place Pipe Repair
The cured in place pipe repair method is an economical way of repairing our customers’ sewer lines. This is because we no longer have to cause property damages due to extreme digging just to expose the old pipes for repair.
This trenchless sewer repair method is made possible by the use of an epoxy-based sewer liner inserted into the pipes. The tube filled with epoxy substance is inserted into the pipes and the lining begins. The lining process resolves cracks in the pipes, fills gaps in damaged parts of the pipes, thus, allowing the drains to work better than they were at first.
Another method used when repairing sewer pipes is called pipe bursting. We use a cable with a bursting head shaped like an arrow to break the old pipes. The pipe bursting method is only recommended to our customers if the old pipes cannot be repaired using the cured in place pipe repair method.
Pipe bursting may also be used to expand the capacity of the pipe. Customers will want to do this if the original pipes are too narrow and if clogging occurs more often than expected. By expanding the pipe’s capacity, it can flush away more water and dirt down the sewers.
Whichever trenchless method our customers wish to use, we are ready to assist. We are available to those within and nearby the Columbus, GA area.
