Repairing Or Replacing A Sewer Line
There was a time when a damaged sewer line meant a backhoe would soon be digging up a trench from your home to the street, causing extensive damage to your lawn. Thankfully, today, there are trenchless options that require limited digging, thus protecting the integrity of your property. The technicians at Baker Brothers are experts in the most cutting edge trenchless sewer repair and replacement technologies.
Our first task will be to identify the exact nature of the problem. A visual inspection utilizing a small camera that can travel through your pipes should reveal the extent of the damage to your sewer line.
Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP)
Often times, the damage to the sewer line is limited to cracks in the pipe’s walls. If it hasn’t collapsed completely, we may be able to restore it using a method known as Cured-In Place Pipe. This solution involves inserting a pliable, resin-infused flexible tube into the damaged pipe. The new lining completely adheres to the walls of the existing line, adopting its contours and following its curves. The resin is then allowed to dry, forming a solid and seamless new pipe inside the old one that is structurally sound, often boasting greater strength than the original.
Even if the damage is too great for it to be restored using CIPP, it can still be replaced without the need to dig up a trench to remove the old sewer line and lay a new one in its place. We can use a technique called pipe bursting that involves pulling a steel expander head through the old pipe. Its diameter is slightly larger than the old pipe, causing it to shatter, and pushing the broken pieces into the soil as it travels, leaving space for the new replacement pipe, which is pulled into place behind the expander head.
In addition to safeguarding your lawn and landscaping, these trenchless solutions are also generally more affordable than traditional repair or replacement solutions, since they can be completed more quickly and with less labor.
