In Marietta, homes are well known to be older and therefore have old plumbing systems that consist of less-stable materials that erode quicker over time. When leaking or corroded pipelines are discovered, homeowners face figuring out how to correct the problem as soon as possible before the problem gets worse. This is where The Pipe Medic can be of assistance.
Why Trenchless Pipe Lining is Beneficial & Eco-Friendly in Marietta, GA
In the past, pipes were not created out of the durable materials they are today. Damaged pipes or sewer lines infiltrated with tree roots are a common occurrence, especially when proper inspection has not taken place for many years. This can leave new or old homeowners in trouble should they discover signs of a leak, corrosion or root infestation. The Pipe Medic’s team of professional sewer technicians can help assist with any of these problems to ensure homeowners pipes are in tip top shape thanks to trenchless technology.
Trenchless technology was created to try to speed up and lower the cost of pipe lining and repair. At its core, trenchless methods are used to bypass manual digging. This means manual digging is not needed and technicians can gain entry to small access points that do not destroy homes or lawns in the process.
One of these methods is known as CIPP, or cure in place piping. If a homeowner is diagnosed by our team with a leak, crack or minimal corrosion, we will work through this process to mend the pipeline. How CIPP process is completed starts first with a camera inspection. This ensured the problem and the location, as well as dimensions of the pipe that needs to be replaced. Then a flexible liner is cut to the dimensions of the preexisting pipe. Machinery then carefully pulls this liner into place within the old pipe. Hot pressurized air is inserted into the pipe to allow the liner to mold itself perfectly to the walls of the old pipe. This covers any leak or crack, and gives protection against corrosion. It is then left to cure for a few hours until it is dry and fully functional.
Sometimes pipes have large cracks or too much corrosion for CIPP to be a safe option. Instead, pipe bursting is used. Pipe bursting involves a bursting head that has been fitted to a homeowners pipe dimensions. First, a camera inspection is done to ensure, like CIPP, the dimensions and location of the pipe in question. It is then dragged with a hydraulic machine down the length of the broken or corroded pipe. This shatters the pipe and allows room for a new pipe to be inserted. A new liner is cut to the exact dimensions of the old pipe and is carefully inserted by machinery. When it has been perfectly placed, it is left to cure into a fully functional new pipe.
