The Sewer Pipe Lining Installation Process
Most commercial business owners can attest to the fact that construction and repairs are a nuisance because they affect business efficiency. Not only do they disrupt daily operations and throw everyone off schedule, but major construction also has a tendency to have a major price tag, as the downtime can be very costly. Keep in mind that all of these inconveniences come before you get the final bill from the plumbing contractor, as well as the repair contractor you inevitably have to hire to clean up the mess that’s left behind.
The great thing about our pipeline installation process is that it does not interfere with your daily business operations, meaning you will not have to pay downtime costs. If your commercial building needs pipe rehabilitation, you can expect to carry on business as usual without sacrificing any of your profits.
Step 1: First we conduct a sewer camera inspection.
This is simply done by running a high-resolution camera down into the actual pipe, ensuring a proper and thorough diagnosis. Once the inspection is complete, the debris and waste buildup is removed. This is generally accomplished through a hydro jetting session. It is very easy for different types of deposits to become lodged inside of your pipes, and this is usually what is causing your backup or pipe failure. The contractor will clean everything out with a high-pressure blast of water, taking the time to remove all of the scale and corrosion from your drain pipes. Oftentimes a good pipe cleaning is all you need to get your sewer working properly again!
Step 2: Thorough cleaning
After cleaning, your pipes undergo another inspection and are measured. Before the installation process can begin, your contractor must first take a look at how your pipes are laid out, making it very important that they determine the exact distance of your new trenchless pipelines. Your contractor will again use video camera equipment to ensure that their measurements and diagnosis are both accurate and efficient.
Step 3: The pipe-liner is cut and the epoxy resin is added.
Typically this is referred to as impregnating the liner with resin. The liner is shot down inside your pipe with pressurized air, allowing the liner to be unfurled inside the pipe. Afterwards, an air bladder follows and is filled with air, which forces the epoxy coated liner inside the interior of the damaged pipe, coating it with the epoxy itself. This is the beginning of your new sewer pipe.
Step 4: Cure-in-Place
Once your new liner has been installed, the epoxy mixture will be allowed to harden. This is made quick and easy by the amount of air pressure that is pumped into the walls of your repaired pipe. Once the liner has been allowed to cure-in-place the air bladder is pulled, leaving a brand new pipe within a pipe in its place. There are no seams or joints, allowing it to be a long and consistent piece of continuous pipe.
Step 5: Get back to your regular routine quickly!
There are certain repair jobs that can last weeks, sometimes even months. This is not the case when it comes to pipe lining installation. You can expect for your pipe lining to be cured in place in just a few hours, and because the collateral damage is extremely limited, there's little evidence that we conducted repairs. You're left with properly draining pipes that will last a long time.
Step 6: Pay an affordable price
With most construction jobs, the cost of labor, materials, and permits can set you back a pretty penny. This is especially true if there is a lot of initial digging and destruction and post-work repairs. However, this is not the case when it comes to pipe lining installation. That’s because there is no major construction involved. Unlike traditional pipe repairs that can destroy landscaping, driveways, flooring, basements, and walls, there is no digging required. This key factor is what helps the contractors to keep all of the costs down–nothing has to be destroyed or majorly reconstructed. The pipeline installation process is one of the most affordable and economical repair jobs there is.
