Traditionally, working on sewer pipes would involve digging a large trench around the pipe to provide access to repair or repair parts of the pipe. This method disturbed a lot of lands, which was especially frustrating if the pipe was under pavement or crossed into someone else's property. Trenchless technology has arisen as a less invasive method both in plumbing and construction. Next Level Pipe Lining offers trenchless pipe lining in Charlotte, NC, and these other services.
Pipe bursting - Rather than digging a large and invasive trench, trenchless pipe laying can replace pipe via a method known as pipe bursting, which requires holes at either end of the problem area. A bursting cable is inserted through the existing sewer line and attached to the new pipe. As the cable is pulled, it pushes away the old sewer line and pulls the new line into its lace.
Cured in Place Pipe - Trenchless piping also allows for repairs through a process known as cured-in-place-pipe or CIPP. This method involves lining the existing pipe with a material such as a curable resin that essentially creates a "pipe within a pipe" to prolong the life of the pipe without needing to replace it.
Take note that CIPP pipe lining in Charlotte, NC, reduces the diameter of your pipe. However, this typically isn't an issue because the resin is so smooth. Secondly, resin lining may not last as long as a new pipe. Still, CIPP repairs can last up to 50 years.
Another perk for homeowners who need pipe lining companies in Charlotte, NC for these services is that trenchless pipe lining is typically more affordable than digging a trench, which requires more machinery and manpower.
