Traditional sewer repair methods typically bring to mind a time-consuming, costly, and destructive process that took weeks to complete, and the solutions were not often long-lasting and ideal. At Gladiator Rooter and Plumber, our trenchless sewer repair options are less-invasive, cheaper, and easier methods of sewer repair, eliminating the need for digging trenches through your landscaping and employing the use of pipe bursting or pipe lining instead. Gladiator Rooter and Plumbing has the technology and skill to perform both types of trenchless sewer repair, and our technicians have been expertly trained to perform each method of repair smoothly. Pipe bursting is a trenchless method that takes place entirely underground, minimizing property damage, and is often employed when the existing pipe has collapsed or is suffering from major breaks and misalignment that can’t be reversed with pipe lining solutions. It is performed by using a pulling machine and pulling rods to burst through the existing pipe and pull replacement pipes into place where the old pipeline used to rest. This method of sewer repair requires very little digging on your property and will not affect the surrounding underground area.
Trenchless pipe lining is performed using a breakthrough technology that involves relining your existing pipes with an epoxy resin. During this process, one of our technicians will clean out the existing pipes with forced air or water to make room for the new epoxy pipes. After the inside of the existing pipeline is clear, the technician will use an existing access point to the plumbing to pour an epoxy resin into the pipeline, removing the need for the technician to dig trenches to access the sewer line. The resin is then inflated until it hardens to the inside rim of the pipe, filling in any existing cracks or breaks in the pipe. If the sewer pipes are being replaced, the resin will harden to the inside rim of the pipes to renew them. Pipe lining technology can be used to repair most pipes, including 2-to-12 inch pipes, made from PVC, orangeburg, cast iron, or clay. The new epoxy material is anti-corrosive and root-resistant, and is an environmentally-friendly, non-hazardous pipe that will last for fifty years or more.
