When Are Sewer Repairs Recommended In Burlington?
Sewer systems, depending on the pipeline materials, are expected to function smoothly for a few decades before experiencing problems. Over time, materials such as clay or terracotta will eventually break down and require fast repairs. Our team at Next Level Pipe Lining takes these problems into account in order to offer the best solution for our customers.
Prior to making any fixes, we will first conduct a thorough inspection of the entire system as a whole. This involves inserting a small, waterproof camera directly into the pipes through a small access point or cleanout available on your property. Once a point of entry has been established, we navigate the camera through the pipe.
The camera is attached to robotic equipment that moves through the pipe on wheels that is controlled by our technician. The footage captured by the camera is sent back to a monitor for our experts to carefully review. During this inspection, we look for obvious problems like clogs or misalignments in the pipeline joints as well as smaller issues like leaks or corrosion developing along the interior of the sewer pipe. We will recommend that the sewer system needs to be repaired if we diagnose any of the following complications in the drains, including:
- Cracks or leaks
- Pipeline collapses or misalignments
- Tree root infestations or clogs
Once we have assessed the nature of the problem and offered our preferred solution for fixing it, we will take the time to discuss the repair time and steps with our customers. Depending on the solution we recommend, we may need to clean out the pipes of debris or waste with hydro jetting equipment.
This tool allows us to completely blast obstructions out from inside of the pipes by ejecting high-pressure streams of water from a multi-directional nozzle attached to the hose. This cleaning process is safe and eco-friendly, restoring the pipeline’s original diameter while ensuring that our repairs will go smoothly.

Sewer Excavation Repairs In North Carolina
Sewer line excavation repairs are often recommended when pipelines have collapsed or suffer from extensive erosion that has reduced the stability and structure of the pipes as a whole. In many cases, clay and terracotta pipes are prone to tree root infestations and are not structurally sound to hold new pipes created by epoxy resin.
Because of this, we often recommend replacing these pipelines in their entirety, and to achieve this, we excavate the materials out of the ground. After the necessary trenches have been dug, the broken, faulty pipe is removed and replaced with new PVC pipeline materials that are more durable and long-lasting. After this is done, the trench is filled and the process is complete. Dig-and-replace repairs typically require a few weeks to finish.
What Is Trenchless Technology?
Trenchless technology is the culmination of advanced equipment and expanding knowledge on how to repair pipeline networks. This technology allows companies to restore pipes without the heavy excavation and digging associated with standard repair method, speeding up the process while producing a more safe and eco-friendly solution. The technology has been developed within the last decade and continues to expand in utility and practicality for customers across North Carolina, including Burlington.
Trenchless Pipe Lining
Trenchless pipe lining is a new repair technique that allows specialists to fix sewer pipes without digging trenches. In this process, a flexible tube coated with epoxy resin is inserted into the faulty sewer pipe either through a cleanout or small hole that is carefully dug by the technician.
The tube is positioned to cover the area of damage and can be used to fix small sections of pipelines or entire lengths of sewer systems if need be. The liner is inflated by an artificial bladder inside of the tube, and the expansion forces the epoxy resin to be pressed to the inside of the damaged pipe, seamlessly sealing away cracks and leaks while evenly covering possible corrosion.
The curing time for epoxy resin takes approximately a few to several hours, allowing the tube to harden and adhere to the inside of the pipe. The liner acts as the new pipeline and promotes smooth and efficient wastewater flow while reducing the risk of clogs and tree roots from causing problems in your sewer system.
Another form of trenchless repairs, pipe bursting is a specialized service recommended to fix pipes that have collapsed or eroded to the point that trenchless pipe lining services won’t be a sufficient solution. Pipe bursting allows experts to quickly replace pipes by eliminating the preliminary digging and trenching steps.
A drilling head is inserted into the pipe, and its size is designated to be larger than the pipeline’s diameter in order to effectively break it apart. As the drilling head is forced through the pipe and break it apart into the surrounding soil, the equipment also pulls along a new, HDPE pipe from behind. The HDPE pipe is attached to the bursting head and replaces the old pipe from within.
