Professional Trenchless Sewer Repair in Bryn Mawr, PA
Pipeshark is proud to offer trenchless sewer repair in Bryn Mawr, PA, and the surrounding areas. This type of sewer repair has been used successfully for over three decades to repair broken sewer lines or replace sewer lines that are beyond repair without the need for fullscale excavation like that used to create trenches in traditional sewer repair. This comes as a relief to homeowners who may unexpectedly be faced with the need to repair or replace a sewer line, especially at their own cost.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Our team utilizes tried-and-true methods of trenchless sewer replacement such as pipe bursting to replace portions of pipe that cannot be adequately repaired. In pipe bursting, a hole is dug only at either end of the pipe to be replaced, rather than trenching the whole line up. A bullet-shaped bursting head is then pulled through the old pipe, fracturing it and pushing it just a little into the surrounding soil. The new pipe is attached to the back of the bursting head and so is installed at the same time the old defective pipe is broken up and pushed out of the way.
Another method a professional trenchless contractor in Bryn Mawr, PA, may use is known as cured-in-place piping (CIPP) or pipe lining, which actually manufactures a new pipe right inside the old one. A properly sized felt tube is impregnated with epoxy to a specific thickness and then installed into the old pipe. The epoxied felt pipe liner is held tight against the old pipe until the epoxy cures. This new CIPP liner meets the same strength and lifespan characteristics as a new sewer and drain pipe. CIPP pipe liner can be used to rehabilitate leaking sewer and drain piping. It has the added advantage of installation from just one point of access. Often that point of access is an existing clean-out or a vent.
What Are the Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Trenchless pipe repair can typically mean that repairs can be completed in less time for a lower cost than traditional sewer repair when performed by a reputable pipe lining company. This is because much of the cost of traditional sewer repair is for the excavation machinery and manpower required to dig the trench around the sewer line.
Furthermore, clients will find that when we do trenchless pipe replacement, there is little to no resurfacing required. Resurfacing is always required when dig-and-replace techniques are used to repair sewer lines.
Those more invasive methods can take more time and can even require rerouting of traffic, which is not the case with trenchless pipe lining.
