One of the best solutions for your Palm Beach home is pipe lining. It is a trenchless technology that is effective in repairing all kinds of underground pipe problems. In the Palm Beach area you can turn to us at Pipe Surgeons to provide this service. But how exactly does it work?
Before we can do anything with your underground sewer pipe, we need to get a closer look inside it to see exactly where the problem is located. We do this with a sewer camera inspection. The small, waterproof camera we insert into the sewer pipe shows us the conditions of your pipe in vivid detail. Once we place the camera inside the pipe, we can move it up or down the length to get a good look at what is happening inside of it. The video feed goes directly to an on-site technician who can monitor and identify any possible problem that appears in the video stream.
If we spot leaks or cracks that can be fixed with a pipe lining, then we will begin the process of preparing a liner. The pipe lining comes in the form of a pliable fiberglass-type sleeve that we feed into the sewer pipe it will be used to repair. Once the sleeve is completely unfurled, we then apply hot water to the pipe. The temperature of the water creates a chemical reaction to the compounds that cover the lining. It results in a hardened length of solid pipe within a pipe that is held in place by the former pipe’s structure, and the newly installed pipe will last for decades.
The reason why a pipe lining is the best solution are many and include the fact that there is minimal digging involved. With traditional dig-and-replace methods, a large trench is plowed through your property and the damaged pipe is pulled out of the ground following an exterior inspection. The mess that remains after the job is completed will scar your yard for years. Pipe lining is not only faster, it is kinder to the environment with no major digging and no removal of pipes. Also, pipe lining costs less than a traditional pipe replacement project and will last longer which saves you even more money because the material used will not breakdown or corrode.
