We offer two types of sewer repair services. First is the trenchless sewer repair method that does not need deep excavations in order to successfully carry out a sewer repair project. Next is the traditional sewer repair that may require installation of new pipelines.
For the traditional sewer repair service, we may need to assess the extent of damage that the pipes have before we proceed as this may mean digging the customer’s property to take out the old pipes and then installing the new pipes. This is especially true if the old pipes are made of iron because iron cannot be broken by the trenchless method called pipe bursting.
If the pipes are not made of any hard materials and they do not require complete overhaul, the trenchless sewer repair option will be advised. This method reduces costs as well as time spent in completing the work. Through pipe bursting, a plastic pipe can be replaced without digging out the old pipes. If the repairs do not require taking out the old pipe, sewer lining can be done using an epoxy liner.
We help our customers determine what type of repair they need. The steps for both types are similar in many ways.
The first step is to conduct an initial inspection. This stage will tell us what type of material the existing pipe is made of. It will also show us the extent of the damage. To conduct the inspection, we use a CCTV camera attached to a cable and inserted into the sewer system. At the surface, we operate a monitor that shows exactly what the camera captures from underground. The customer may also look at the monitor real-time, thus, there is no need for long explanations about the issues going on in the sewers.
After the initial inspection, we collaborate with the customer according to the results and we decide what repair needs to be done.
