Improvements in sewer repair technology has allowed our team at Gladiator Rooter and Plumbing to more effectively carry out repair methods that bypass the invasive techniques of the past.
Through our specialization in trenchless pipe repairing and cured-in-place pipe lining, these innovative processes allow us to quickly and easily fix pipes. On top of that, we combine these processes with advanced technology in the form of our camera inspections to diagnose the condition of the pipes accurately without needless excavation. If the camera reveals water seeping through a crack in the pipe, or exposes a hole or gap within the pipe, our trenchless pipe lining method of repair allows us to quickly fix the problem.
Trenchless pipe lining is a non-disruptive, quick, and economical method for fixing pipes. Our team digs two holes, one at opposite sides of the damaged pipeline. For smaller leaks, a new pipe is blown through the old pipe, lining it as it goes along. For more serious repairs, a splitter head is sent down the, simultaneously breaking the older pipe while pulling a new one behind it. This new pipe, created by an epoxy resin, expands to fill the gap left behind by the old pipe. Finally, it is cured in place with either steam, a UV light, or other method appropriate for the situation. The new pipe is waterproof and smooth, inhibiting the collection of dirt and debris along the inside water and improving the flow of water. On top of that, this new pipe is seamless, preventing tree roots from being able to penetrate the pipe. These epoxy resin-based pipes have a lifespan of over 50 years, ensuring our customers that our solution is a long-lasting, efficient product. It is for these reasons that epoxy-resin pipes have become the new standard of trenchless pipe lining, and is so versatile that it can be used for domestic and industrial systems as well.
