Trenchless Sewer Repair Services in Marietta, GA
If you’re reading this article, chances are you don’t have waist-high water currently flooding your Marietta basement. However, educating yourself on the different methods of sewer repair before disaster strikes is always a great idea! Read on to learn about NGI’s state-of-the-art plumbing system technology, and how it could help you:
What is “Trenchless” Repair?
The term “trenchless” refers to a number of minimally invasive cutting-edge plumbing procedures. Unlike traditional repairs, which require the digging of a long, large trench in your Marietta yard or under the foundation of your house, trenchless repairs need only a small access point to repair or even replace your pipe. All repairs, no matter how severe, are completed below-ground - great news for the home or business owner, as this translates to less mess, job time, and less hassle.
What kind of sewer repair do I need?
NGI offers a range of trenchless services to meet your plumbing needs. These vary from procedures designed for major repairs down to routine maintenance, but all are completed using our minimally invasive trenchless technology. Read below to learn more about the service you need:
Sewer camera inspection: First and foremost, an important diagnostic tool. A small, high-definition camera is threaded into your sewer pipe by an NGI technician, who studies the images and assesses the health of the pipe, as well as the location of any damage.
Drain cleaning: NGI offers two methods of drain cleaning - conventional “snaking” and the more modern hydro jetting. Some drain clogs can be up to four feet in length, and snaking can in some cases eliminate the source of the clog. For pipes clogged with kitchen grease, or for other “deep cleaning” needs, hydro jetting is utilized. Hot, high-pressure water is injected into the pipe and removes all debris, leaving the inside of your pipe scrubbed clean.
Trenchless pipe lining: This process is by definition highly flexible, and is perfect for corroded, degraded, or cracked pipes. A deflated “balloon” coated in a durable epoxy resin is inserted into the pipe. Once reaching the target area, the balloon is inflated, coating the inside of the pipe with the epoxy mixture. After curing with heat, it’s ready for use - the entire process generally takes less than a day! This method can be applied to the whole plumbing system or simply one area, and can be installed in straight, curved, or 90-degree angle pipes. The new liner has a lifespan of up to fifty years, longer than any other pipe material on the market today.
