How Do Modern Piping Services Perform Sewer Repairs?

Monday, October 8th, 2018

industrial-pipesThe sewer line is a critical stretch of piping for a building, no matter the size or type of building. Homes, businesses, and industrial facilities need to have an undamaged and unobstructed sewer pipeline in order to function effectively and hygienically.

But no sewer line is invincible. Construction, shifts in the earth, corrosion from chemicals, and plain old aging can all lead to a sewer pipe that needs repairs. The job obviously requires professionals—no amateur can access a buried sewer line or even have the slightest idea how to repair it if they could. But some professional piping service contractors still use outdated methods of pipe repair involving massive amounts of digging equipment to excavate down to the sewer line. We’d like to explain the modern way we handle sewer repair work.

You Can Fix That Older Pipe With Slip-Lining

Monday, August 27th, 2018

degraded-pipesHow do you repair a buried sewer line or water main line? Do you call up a standard plumber and ask if they can dig down to the pipe and patch it up, or maybe put in a new one? This is what many people do, whether they’re homeowners or business owners. But it’s not the best way to take care of repairs for older pipes. You don’t need a “plumber,” somebody who mostly works with indoor pipes, when it comes to working on a sewer or water main. You need a pipe repair and replacement technician with the skill, experience, and equipment necessary for trenchless slip-lining services.

We’re a contractor offering sewer pipe lining in Seattle, WA and throughout Western Washington and the Puget Sound Region. We use trenchless slip-lining for fast repairs to pipes.

What to Do for Sewer Pipes When They’re Too Far Gone

Monday, August 13th, 2018

pipe-decaySewer lines are designed to last for as long as possible, but no sewer line can last for an eternity. Older pipes made from cast iron or galvanized steel will decay from corrosion eventually, and even modern plastic pipes and copper are susceptible to damage.

Sewer lines can be repaired through point repair procedures when the damage is limited to a small area. We handle this job by sending a carrier unit into the pipe that then seals with epoxy mixtures of resin and fiberglass to the interior of the damaged sewer line to fix it. This is an example of our trenchless technology at work: there’s no need to do any digging to expose the sewer line to make repairs. This speeds up the job and leaves behind little disruption to the property.

But if a sewer line is decayed too much, it will either need an extensive patching along its length or a complete replacement. You can also trust us with these jobs, since trenchless technology is ideally suited to such large-scale projects.
