Times may be tight right now, but what if the sewer system is leaking? Is it better to re-pipe the system or replace it with CIPP? If there are signs sewer repairs are required, trenchless sewer repair in Seattle, WA, is a tried-and-true method. Here at Bob Oates Sewer and Rooter, we have highly trained technicians in the process that ensure efficiency.
What is CIPP Pipe Lining?
Trenchless pipe lining allows an existing system to remain in place, cutting the costs of an expensive and unnecessary re-pipe. CIPP, which stands for Cured-In-Place-Piping, is a cost-effective technique, since it doesn’t require any digging and won’t leave a mess from unnecessary demolition. Our technicians use a flexible material that is maneuvered through existing piping. Once it is in place, the air is forced through the center, allowing it to hug the existing pipes’ edges but leaving the center hollow. After the material is activated, the epoxy should be left to cure.
How Long Does Pipe Lining Take?
In a typical scenario, a plumber in Seattle, WA, can complete the entire process within three or four hours. While the curing process can take up to 24 hours, the entire work from start-to-finish is vastly more efficient than a re-pipe that might take weeks.
The only real way to know how long the whole job might take is to contact us for an estimate. Taking preventative measures and maintaining the existing piping system should help put trenchless pipe replacement as something to be done further down the line. Even with performing regular maintenance, eventually, replacement might become necessary.
There are many trenchless sewer replacement techniques and processes that our technicians have experience and training in, making Bob Oates and CIPP pipe lining your ideal choice.
