With the drains and pipes in homes constantly being used, the possibility of problems developing is increased. At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we work hard to keep these risks low and ease our customer’s concerns. In Capitol Hill, we offer home repiping services to restore pipelines in homes and ensure that our customer’s pipeline networks operate at optimal condition.
Our team strives for precision and long-lasting results in all of the work we do, and to ensure that our home repiping solutions are effective, we conduct a sewer camera inspection in order to determine the source of the damage as needed. We make sure that our technicians are fully equipped and stocked with the needed tools so that, no matter what the diagnosis reveals, we will have what we need to offer a customized solution for your specific situation.
Using a small camera placed on crawlers, our technicians will be able to guide the camera through the pipes while assessing the condition of the pipes through a live video feed. This way, we can ensure that our diagnosis of the problem will be holistic and that are solutions will fully address the problems at hand. Once our inspection is resolved and we have determined that home repiping is the ideal solution, we will clean the interior walls of the pipe with high-pressure water jetting equipment. With high-pressure, hot water flowing through the pipes, we can fully remove the buildup of waste and organic materials without damaging the pipeline itself. This cleaning method is much more effective than chemical cleaners since the water is distilled and pure.
Through a single access point, our specialists will insert a reinforced bladder coated with a special epoxy resin into the pipe and guide it to the break or crack. The epoxy resin is perfectly safe to use in potable water systems, making it a versatile solution and a key component of our home repiping efforts. Once it is in position, it is inflated and forces the resin to coat the interior of the pipe. The inflatable bladder is removed and the resin is given time to cure and harden properly, a process that usually requires at least a few hours or more. Once it has hardened, it acts as the new liner in your home’s pipeline network, and with an estimated lifespan of fifty years, the liner will continue to improve the quality of wastewater flow and efficiency in your system while resisting corrosion and clog formations.
Because of this, home repiping is an environmentally-friendly process. Without all of the digging and needless excavation, the costs of our work are reduced and more affordable for our customers. Finally, by only requiring a single day to be installed, our home repiping services will keep your schedule largely unaffected by our work. You won’t need to relocate to a different home or hotel, and your water services won’t need to be turned off either, making the process efficient and convenient for all of our customers across Capitol Hill. Call Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter for your home repiping needs today, and we look forward to helping you restore your home’s pipeline network back to normal.
