Trenchless Repair for Old Pipes
Trenchless pipe repair is the preferred way to make needed improvements to your home’s plumbing. When you allow our skilled technicians to complete your old pipe replacement, our first step will be a thorough camera inspection. By using a malleable cable with a high-definition camera on the end, our team gets an inside look at the inner workings of your pipes. The real-time camera feed reveals pipe blockages, cracks, and buildup that can affect the efficiency of your plumbing.
We will use the camera inspection to locate the problem areas within your plumbing and evaluate which treatment options are best for your old pipe repair project. Two of the most popular pipe repair and replacement methods are: trenchless pipe lining and trenchless pipe bursting. Trenchless pipe lining is used in situations where your pipes are damaged, but still have enough structure to be lined, creating a new pipe within your existing one. Trenchless pipe bursting is used when your old pipes are too damaged and cannot be rehabilitated.
The age and upkeep of your pipes are just two of the factors that determine their longevity. Your pipe material will also affect how long the plumbing will last. Older pipes are typically made of brass, copper, orangeburg, terracotta, and galvanized steel. Routine pipe maintenance will give you the information you need to know when it may be time to replace your old pipes.
