Lancaster, PA Sewer Repair
Sewer repairs and replacements are some of the biggest plumbing services that a residential or commercial property can undergo. But, thanks to trenchless technologies, these processes have become a lot more bearable. The professionals at Pipeshark use these no-dig methods to repair issues that are found in Lancaster sewer systems during inspections. We have multiple options that can be used to address the issues and restore the sewer system back to the best possible condition.
CIPP Lining in Pennsylvania
Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining is a repair method used throughout Pennsylvania to restore pipes without removing the pipes. The process involves staging a replacement pipe within the pipe that is already in the system. The process begins with a sewer camera inspection, which is the use of a high-definition camera that captures images of the inside of a pipe. Those images are then used to get a closer look at the line’s condition and identify all existing problems as well as the best possible solutions for those issues.
After the inspection, a cleaning takes place. The most effective trenchless cleaning solution is the 4000 PSI water pressure method of hydro jetting. This washes away tree branches and anything in the pipes that doesn’t belong and pushes it through the system and into the city’s main sewer line. This leaves us with a clean slate to work with and we’re ready to begin the relining process.
When we’re ready to reline, we first cut the liner to fit the size and shape of the affected area that will be treated. Once that is done, we douse the inside of the liner with epoxy resin solution, which is smoothened out and distributed evenly in the liner. Once it’s ready to go, it’s pushed through the pipes and placed in the position of the area that is being treated. Steam is used to open up and begin to place the liner in position to where it will form. After the tube is inflated,the liner molds to the previous pipe and forms a new pipe inside. Once in place, the inflatable device is removed and the new pipe is now in place and ready for use. CIPP lining can even be used when the majority of the pipe is in need of repair.
This process can take less than a day’s worth of work whereas a traditional repair of this nature could take at least an entire day or even a few days due to the digging involved. Trenchless sewer options give us the environmentally friendly option of preserving the ground, soil, and natural settings above the pipes by accessing them and treating them all internally through pre-existing access points.
