We expect our plumbing systems to work. When we flush the toilet we expect the water to swirl around and exit down through the pipes to the main sewer or our septic tank. When drains stop working the way they should, we’re pushed into decisions most of us are not very familiar with. If you have recurring drain backups or sewer overflows it could be time to investigate the cause. If there is a problem you should consider a trenchless sewer replacement or repair in the Philadelphia, PA area. Pipeshark is ready with options.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Trenchless sewer repair in Philadelphia, PA area is using any of four modern technologies to solve the drain problem without the traditional rip out of the old line. It avoids the time and the mess of the old ways and it saves the restoration of what was removed to access the pipe — walls, floors, landscaping, and other infrastructure.
Many plumbing services in Philadelphia, PA area do not offer any trenchless options. Pipeshark specializes in them and owns all four trenchless technologies. So it can give you the solution that just right for your sewer problem.
The process starts with a sewer video inspection to determine exactly what is going on. That’s great for you because you can see for yourself and not be held hostage to some salesman’s opinion. Maybe the best solution is trenchless pipe lining in Philadelphia, PA suburbs. Maybe it trenchless pipe bursting or even a trenchless point repair. A clear video will tell us what options will work best.
Trenchless pipe lining is called Cured-In-Place Piping or CIPP because it builds a new pipe right inside the old one. The new pipe meets the strength characteristics of sewer and drain pipe from the supply house and so will stand alone if the old pipe completely rots away. Trenchless pipe bursting destroys the old pipe and pulls a new pipe into place a the same time. This new high-density polyethylene pipe is the same pipe used for new gas mains because the pieces are fused together so there are no joints to ever leak or allow roots to penetrate in the future. Trenchless point repairs are great if the sewer line is in good condition but has a single issue like a hole or a joint that is offset. Finally, if the pipe to be rehabbed is too small for lining or has a lot of connections to be reinstated, trenchless pipe coating may be a better option.
Pipeshark is certified in all of these trenchless technologies and all of them are code approved. We can work directly for the homeowner or work under their plumber in Philadelphia, PA area.
What Are The Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Repair?
The common element of all of these trenchless sewer repairs is that they don’t require removing the old pipe. So, if the sewer or drain pipe is difficult to access because it is buried, or runs under a floor or above a ceiling or in a wall, the cost of getting to all the pipe is saved. That also means that the cost of restoring all those things after all the pipe has been replaced is saved as well. Of course, you also save yourself the mess, the inconvenience, and the extra time to do those other things.
Our plumbers at Pipeshark will inspect your sewer, drain, water, or storm pipe and tell you whether there are any trenchless solutions to your problem.
