Sewer lining is a method of trenchless pipe repair, meaning it uses minimally invasive or destructive techniques. If your Triad home or business is suffering from aged and corroded sewer lines, misaligned joints, or leaks caused by damage or tree root infiltration, relining may be the best solution. At the Winston-Salem location of Next Level Pipe Lining, we specialize in this and other trenchless repair methods.
The Steps of The Sewer Line Inspection & Cleaning Process In Greensboro Residences
As soon as our professional technicians arrive on your property, we will perform a full closed-circuit television (CCTV) inspection. We use a waterproof sewer camera to observe the entire length of the line in real time. The high-quality video informs our technicians on the state of the pipelines, their material and size, and the location of any breaks or blockages.
After discussing repair options with the client based on our notes from the inspection, we will thoroughly clean the pipes. This is necessary to ensure a complete, long-lasting repair. It has the added benefit of increasing the longevity of water mains that are not affected by the damage. For best results, we use the innovative technique of hydro jetting for the cleaning.
Pressurized water is jetted through a hose inserted through a drain or other opening. A specialized nozzle shoots the water in multiple directions, effectively scrubbing off hardened deposits and greasy buildup alike. The waste is drained through a cleanout or other small opening, leaving water lines and sewer pipes clean without running the risk of damage or needing to remove each one individually. The pipeline is finally drained and dried in preparation for the repair.
The Sewer Pipe Lining Installation Steps
To access your sewer line, a small hole is created on one or either side of the repair. During the inspection, our technicians will have examined the location of the damage and the diameter of the pipes, allowing them to choose the perfect length and size of lining for the job. The lining is soaked in an epoxy resin, engineered to harden into a resilient, waterproof substance when cured.
This lining is maneuvered into place, pressurized, and inflated. It fills every crevice of the pipeline and becomes a seamless new pipe within the old. Heat is applied to the lining, causing the epoxy and curing agent to react. The resin hardens, and the resin-coated fiber pipe is ready to be filled with water and put to work. Despite being a relatively new technique in the industry, epoxy-based liners have been estimated to last as long as fifty years.
