Sewer Rehabilitation Services
Sewer rehabilitation has become a popular method of repairing, replacing or upgrading existing sewer structures through the use of trenchless technology. The benefit of this process over more traditional sewer repair and replacement services is that it does not require open excavation, which many people would prefer to avoid.
Methods of Sewer Rehabilitation
Sewer rehabilitation is a broad term used for a variety of repair and replacement methods. Some of the common methods we use are:
Point Repairs – When there are one or two small problems in a single section of pipe that is otherwise perfectly fine, point repairs are the quickest and cheapest option. Generally it will require replacing one section of pipe, at which point the street or yard will be restored to its original condition.
Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) – This is a trenchless pipeline renewal process used to repair leaks caused by structural and non structural damage. A resin is applied to the necessary areas in order to seal any problem areas.
Pipe Bursting – This process is usually utilized when a sewer line has many severely damaged areas. Rather than doing small repairs, it is more cost effective to simply replace entire sections of pipe.
Slip-Lining – Slip lining is the process of running a pipe of smaller diameter through the existing pipeline. This method will reduce the amount space through which materials can pass through the pipe, so it is important to evaluate if this is a feasible sewer rehabilitation option.
Which Sewer Rehabilitation Method Do You Need?
There are a number of factors that go into deciding which sewer rehabilitation method is required for every repair or replacement job. Location, cost, and scale of the damage are some of the main things to consider before moving forward.
