What is trenchless pipe lining?
The word trenchless refers to the elimination of the need for excessive digging to access pipes directly. Whether professionals needed to view the pipes to determine their condition or replace a specific section, they needed to directly access the pipes. This meant digging up property and land that was above pipes, causing excavations that left properties ruined for a period of time while grass grew back and plants and greenery were replanted.

Trenchless Pipe Lining in Midlothian
Before trenchless pipe lining can begin, our technicians will perform a sewer camera inspection. Your drainage system needs to be evaluated to see if you’re a candidate for this process. This option is good for systems that are in near failing condition or have multiple cracks and holes. It can be done in designated sections that are damaged or throughout the entire system if needed. The inspection will determine what is the best course of action.
The next step in the process is to the clean the pipes. Regardless of how bad the condition of the pipes is, they will need to be cleaned so that the new liner can be secured directly to the pipes. Over time, pipes accumulate layers of grime and build up from wastewater. There are various ways to remove this issues, including hydro jetting, which uses high-pressurized water to strip away layers and blockages that are within the pipes. Once the pipes are cleaned, they are ready for the pipe lining process.
The pipe lining process consists of using a durable felt liner filled with epoxy resin. The liner is cut to fit exactly in either the section or entire course of the system. Once the liner is pulled throughout the system, it is inflated, pressing the epoxy into the interior of the old pipes where it is steamed, hardens, and then molds to the older pipe, forming a new pipe within it. When done, customers are left with a brand new system that is durable enough to last for 50 plus years and block out intrusions such as tree root growth.
