In Bellevue, we are proud to offer trenchless sewer repair options in response to sewer backups and leaks that can potentially damage properties and harm home and business owners.
What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Trenchless sewer repair is the process of restoring sewer pipes without needing to dig trenches in the home or landscape. This method is far more effective and quick to enforce than the traditional methods, and our trained technicians have years of experience in fixing sewers with this method. Before we conduct any repairs, we first inspect the pipes with a high-resolution camera attached to a flexible cable. We include this important step in our repairs because we believe in correctly diagnosing the problem the first time, without any guesswork or digging. Once this is done and the problem is located, whether it’s a clog or leak, we will have the precise solution to fix it. The solution will vary based on the situation, but we guarantee excellent results that will restore your pipes and ensure they continue to function for many years.
Our Pipe Repair Solutions
This is where the beauty of cured-in-place (CIPP) pipe lining and modern technology comes in. Once the problem spot is located and the problem itself is identified, it could be that our team realizes a simple cleaning isn’t the solution. If the pipes are cracked and riddled with holes, they will pass a resin through the pipes using an inflatable epoxy impregnated felt bag, this is inflated to line the interior of the pipes and harden, forming an all-new pipe within the older one.
However, there may be cases where the pipes are broken and new ones need to be laid. CIPP is perfect for this as well because the liner is passed through the pipes, and then inflated it will fill the void where the old pipe used to be, allowing for a seamless fix. The resin then hardens into a concrete-like structure with a lifespan of 50 years.
Why Choose CIPP?
CIPP is virtually non-disruptive, with minimal excavation required. This is also a quicker alternative, with work being finished in a matter of hours, rather than the days traditional pipe-fixing used to take. Furthermore, because this method is not as labor-intensive and time-consuming, it is a lot cheaper than traditional pipe repairing methods.
