How Pipe Bursting Works

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

industrial-pipesOnce upon a time, handling sewer repairs was a messy and time-consuming task. It didn’t matter what size the job was: whether it was to fix the broken sewer line for a home or handling severe damage to an industrial plant’s sewer line, the job required extensive digging to reach the pipe sections in order to remove and replace them.

That’s not how it works today—or not if you call on the right professionals for your sewer repair in Kent, WA. Thanks to pipe bursting, the job can be done fast with little disruption—and that’s true for homes, commercial and industrial facilities, even military installations.

More About Tree Roots and Sewer Lines

Monday, March 25th, 2019

tree-root-and-saplingIn our last post, we talked about how our experts can use cured in place piping (CPP) to repair sewer lines when tree roots have damaged them. We want to take an opportunity to talk in more depth about the trouble with tree roots vs. sewer lines because this is one of the most common dangers for buried pipes. It doesn’t matter if the sewer line serves a small home or a massive facility covering a few acres of land—if there are trees in proximity to where the sewer line is buried, a potential danger exists. Tree root infiltration can cause minor troubles with slow drains, and if left alone can eventually shatter the integrity of the sewer line and require a complete replacement.

What Is Trenchless Rehabilitation?

Monday, January 28th, 2019

question-mark-badgeThe word rehabilitation has a specific meaning for most people—and it doesn’t have any connection to plumbing pipes, sewer lines, or water mains.
