Point Repair Procedures

Point repair is a specific kind of trenchless procedure focusing on fixing a single area of a pipe. Once the location of the issue is confirmed, a carrier unit is inserted into the pipe. This carrier resembles a short pipe, itself. Inside the carrier is an epoxy mixture of resin and fiberglass, the same kind of mixture used for CIPP (Cured in Place Pipe). Once the carrier reaches the area of the pipe that needs repair, it is inflated to push up against the walls of the pipe so that the epoxy can bond properly.

The epoxy hardens into a resilient shell, sealing the pipe section against whatever problem was compromising it. This process takes a few hours, after which point, the applicator is removed. This is one of the best ways to quickly and easily take care of various localized pipe damage issues. The resin has a lifespan of several decades, and is corrosion and leak resistant. You very likely won’t have to repair the same area again.

The Benefits of Using Our Point Repair Services

As with most trenchless services, the primary advantage of our point repair procedure is that you don’t have to dig up the pipe to repair it. The technique is fast, affordable, and does a great job of repairing all kinds of structural issues. That’s why it’s become such a popular method across the country. Another benefit is that the repairs can be conducted without disrupting flow through the pipe. You don’t have to worry about disrupting anything in order to repair it.

We Provide Comprehensive Point Repair Services

There are certainly times when a pipe is too far gone to really be salvageable. However, just because your pipe has a minor leak in it, that’s no reason to overdo it in the repair department. Point repair allows your technician to perfectly target the repair solution to fit the problem. It can be pretty difficult to tell whether or not your pipes need repairs at all, of course.

That’s why you should schedule preventive maintenance at least once every couple of years. If you happen to suspect that one of your pipes is experiencing an issue, though, contact us to schedule an appointment. The faster we can apply the fix to your pipe, the better off it will be. We can handle all of your pipe point repair needs.
