If You Need Trenchless Technology, Contact Insta-Pipe
Originally, adapted from mining technology, trenchless technology allows you to have your subterranean pipes repaired or replaced without causing damage to the surrounding landscape. Before trenchless solutions came into widespread use, the only way to repair or replace water and sewer lines was to dig down to them with a backhoe. This method creates a giant trench, which takes additional time and cost to fill in after the work is completed. Trenchless technology, on the other hand, can repair or replace the pipes horizontally. No trench digging required.
Trenchless Pipe Repair Services Are Available
Trenchless pipe repair covers a number of different techniques. CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe) point repair uses resin to plug up leaks in the pipe. Slip lining inserts a smaller "carrier pipe" to insulate the host pipe from leaks. Trenchless technology makes it much easier to maintain the health of your water and sewer lines, which is why you should take advantage of it when you can. Insta-Pipe offers trenchless pipe repair services throughout Kent, WA.
We Provide Full CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe) Services
Cured in place pipe solutions are a newer method for both pipe repair and replacement. By mixing a special resin, and applying it to either a specific point or the entire pipe, your plumber can quickly improve the operation of the pipe without having to take more drastic measures. The hardened resin does a wonderful job of protecting the pipe from leaks and other issues. We’re proud to offer this service as an additional tool for maintaining the health of your water and sewer pipes.
Let Us Take Care of Your CIPP Lining & CIPP Point Repairs
If a specific point in the pipe needs to be repaired, without digging up the whole thing, CIPP point repairs can be used. The resin is mixed and loaded into an applicator, which is then sent down the pipe to the problem area. The applicator applies the resin to the pipe, sealing the leak. Once the resin dries, it forms an effective seal that will prevent the leak from reopening. This solution can also be applied to the entire pipe.
We can Handle Your Pipe Bursting Requirements
Sometimes, you need to replace a pipe but don’t want to go to the trouble of removing it. That’s where pipe bursting comes into play. An expander head is pushed down the pipe by a trenchless motor, splitting it and forcing it apart. The spreader head lays the new pipe at the same time, with the end result being the new pipe nested inside the remains of the old one. This method can deal with pipe of virtually any material, from clay, to copper, to iron.
We Offer Slip Lining, Pipes & Culverts
Sometimes, you have a pipe that is pretty badly damaged, but not enough to replace it entirely. For that, there’s slip lining. Slip lining involves inserting a smaller pipe, called a "carrier pipe" into the host pipe. The carrier pipe actually carries the water from then on, with the host pipe providing an added layer of protection. We offer a full range of slip lining services for pipes and culverts in Kent, WA. Contact us if you have any questions, or to schedule an appointment.
