Trenchless Pipe Services, Pipe Bursting, & CIPP Services in Vancouver, WA 

t’s never a bad idea to familiarize yourself with some of the methods used in pipe repair and replacement. Sure, it’s not information you’re going to be using every day, or even every month (hopefully.) Still, when you do have a problem in your water or sewer line, you’ll be really glad that you have some knowledge to draw on.

The most important thing to note regarding pipe services is that trenchless is almost always preferable to other methods. Insta-Pipe offers comprehensive trenchless pipe services of all kinds throughout Vancouver, WA. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our expert technicians.

Do You Need Trenchless Technology?

As the name suggests, trenchless technology is a field of pipe servicing methods that do not involve digging a trench. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is actually a huge advantage over previous methods used to address the same issues. Before the advent of trenchless technology, the primary method for dealing with sewer and water line problems was to exhume them.

That meant digging a large trench through the property, which was time consuming, costly, and damaging to the landscape. Trenchless technology is faster, cheaper, and doesn’t cause damage to your property, making it the ideal method for pipe repair and replacement services.

Ask About Our Trenchless Pipe Repair

Trenchless pipe repair should be your first choice if and when your lines develop problems. Rather than digging a trench with a backhoe, trenchless pipe repair involves using a special machine to push whatever repair material is required through the old pipe. This allows your technician to repair the pipe from the inside, without ever having to physically touch or examine it. You can save thousands of dollars on repair costs by going with trenchless pipe repair for your sewer and water lines. We offer trenchless pipe repair services throughout Vancouver, WA.

CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe) Services are Available

Sometimes, the best thing you can do for your subterranean pipes is to install an entirely new one. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to start from scratch, though. CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe) lining involves injecting a fiberglass resin mixture into the affected pipe. The mixture molds to the form of the pipe, filling in any leaks in the process. When the resin dries, it forms a new pipe inside the old one. Insta-Pipe provides CIPP services of all kinds.

We Provide CIPP Lining & CIPP Point Repairs

CIPP lining is good for both pipe replacement and point repair. The resin used will conform to the shape of the applicator used to apply it, which can be shaped to meet the specific needs of the pipe. You don’t have to install an entirely new pipe this way, if you don’t need it. That’s part of what makes this solution so effective; it can be modified to fit virtually any piping need.

Let Us Handle Your Pipe Bursting Needs

Sometimes, it’s easier to intentionally rupture the pipe and leave it in the ground than to dig the whole thing out. For times like those, you need pipe bursting services. During a pipe bursting procedure, an expander head is pushed down the pipe, splitting it in the process and forcing it apart. The head drags the new pipe along behind it, laying the replacement at the same time that it destroys the old one. This leaves the new pipe in place, without having to go to the trouble of taking out the other one.

We can Take Care of Slip Lining, Pipes & Culverts

All kinds of problems can afflict sewer and water pipes, from leaks to intruding tree root structures. Oftentimes, you don’t need to replace the entire pipe for issues like this. You don’t want to just let those problems go unaddressed either, though. If you need to add an extra layer of protection to your pipes, you should consider having slip lining done. Slip lining installs a smaller protective pipe inside the larger pipe or culvert. The smaller pipe ensures that things keep running smoothly, even if the larger host pipe is compromised in some way.
