Trenchless sewer replacement and pipe repair in Norfolk VA
At one time, the only way to conduct pipe repairs in Norfolk, Virginia was to estimate where the issue may be emanating from and bring in heavy excavation equipment to dig up the earth and expose the pipes. It was hardly an exact science, and there was no guarantee that even experts in the industry could pinpoint the trouble with accuracy.
But today’s technology has literally upended the world of pipe repair in Norfolk and elsewhere across the country. Now, the process is labeled trenchless sewer replacement, and no longer is there a need to excavate and lay replacement drains and pipes. Instead, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is the option most often used.
Pipes Installed with CIPP Lining are a Major Benefit
Cured-in-place pipe lines are highly advantageous for many reasons.They are jointless and seamless, making them less vulnerable to the variety of problems that can occur from the older forms of drains. The concept is a ‘pipe-within-a-pipe’ and it is the most popular form of pipe repair in use today. It can be used on any type of pipe – from cast iron to clay – and can be made to fit any size and diameter of a pipe or drain. In other words, the method is highly versatile because of its flexibility.
The process of a pipe repair in Norfolk VA
The process begins when a felt tube is pulled through a damaged pipe. The liner is usually inserted at an upstream point of excavation, after which water pressure is used to invert the liner and then an appropriate source of light and/or heat cures the resin to the pipeline. In no time at all – and with very little effort, damaged, leaking and dangerous municipal, commercial and/or residential pipes and drains are now able to operate like new. Moreover, they are able to work for years to come with hardly a concern there will be a problem in the future.
