4 Steps to Trenchless Pipelining

Trenchless pipelining, also known as trenchless pipe replacement, is a conservative approach to updating outdated or damaged water pipes and sewer lines without the need for excavation. This makes it popular among our clients.

This method can prevent major property damage

After spending money and time perfecting landscaping, it can be frustrating to discover that water and drain lines need to be updated or repaired. Imagining the costs and property damage associated with having large crews dig trenches across the yard, ruining flora and pavement alike, is discouraging. Trenchless methods are now available, and they enable customers to avoid these issues.

These methods allow crews to bypass unearthing pipes and causing unsightly damage because they only require one or two small holes in the ground. Through these small openings, pipelining equipment can be passed rather than requiring a large trench to be made across a person's yard. With the need for less manpower and less equipment, the job can be completed faster. There are only four simple steps to a trenchless pipelining process.

1. Inspect and clean out the existing sewer line

This is usually accomplished via a camera inspection following by a hydrojetting. A small camera attached to a long cable is inserted into the pipeline to uncover what debris, cracks or corrosion have occurred within the line and where along the line the problems are located. After this information is uncovered, using pressurized water via hydrojetting, existing roots and debris will be removed leaving behind a clean slate.

2. Take measurements and prepare supplies

The existing sewer line will be measured so the liner can be cut to the correct dimensions. A bonding resin is prepared then it is placed and integrated into the new liner.

3. Place the new liner into an inverter machine

This machine is specially designed to insert the new liner into the old pipeline and pressurize it until the resin bonds the new liner to the existing pipe.

4. Pipes are reusable

Once the resin has time to seal and harden completely, the newly rejuvenated pipeline can be put back to use. The new liner can cover old calcium build-up and erosion, repair leaks and breaks, mend root intrusion damage and even extend across small missing sections of old pipes. It is essentially a new and improved pipe that is bonded to the inside of an old pipe. This pipe replacement is called CIPP or a cured in place pipe.

Trenchless pipelining can be ideal

This seamless process saves customers time, money and stress. It is easier and less damaging than traditional methods, and it even requires a smaller crew to complete the job. Pipelining extends the life of older, damaged pipes dramatically. If you are interested in avoiding a large, messy and expensive excavation job and you want to preserve your property while also improving the quality of your water pipes and sewer lines, trenchless pipelining is the right choice for you.
