Sewer problems are among the most inconvenient and expensive repairs a homeowner or business owner has to deal with, and the traditional methods of repair reinforce these time-consuming, invasive qualities. But with the incorporation of trenchless technology and NuFlow lining methods, our technicians at Bob Oates Sewer and Rooter are proud to offer better solutions for the residents of Greenwood, WA. Instead of digging hazardous trenches that forces homeowners to relocate for several days, we can reline your pipes with environmentally friendly processes that are fast and affordable.
Here at Bob Oates Sewer and Rooter, our technicians only need two small access points from a nearby cleanout or an open manhole to do the job. A sewer camera inspection initiates the repair process. A high-quality camera is fitted to a flexible optic line and inserted into the pipeline, allowing our technicians to identify the problems in your sewer system. The footage is crisp and clear, exposing problems such as root intrusions, cracks, or spots of corrosion. This diagnostic tool allows our conclusions to be accurate, leading to a quick repair. This step is minimally invasive and guarantees that the solution we recommend will be precise and completely address the problems at hand.
If your pipes are candidates for our NuFlow lining process, we will thoroughly clean out the pipes with our hydro jetting equipment. This service simply requires a water tank and hose with a specialized nozzle attached to be employed, and the cleaning process is very effective as a result. The nozzle sprays the water in all directions, ensuring that the entire diameter of the pipeline is being cleaned by the powerful blasts of water. The water pressure is controlled by our technicians, allowing it to be forceful enough to cut through tree root clumps and mineral deposits while making sure that the pipelines aren’t adversely affected by it. After the pipes have been completely cleaned, we can move forward with our NuFlow lining repairs.
The liner and epoxy resin are inserted into the pipeline, either by being pulled through or inverted by a special machine. The artificial bladder inflates the liner after it is set in position, forcing it to adopt the shape of the damaged pipe. This allows the epoxy resin mixture that is coating the liner to be applied to the pipeline wall instead, covering the presence of leaks, cracks, holes, and corrosion as needed. After a few hours or more, the epoxy resin has been given enough time to completely cure and harden, effectively becoming the new pipeline. Our technicians conduct another camera inspection to ensure that the new lining affixed to the pipe correctly and will function as intended. The new pipe is notable for its durable, smooth, and jointless qualities, helping it resist many of the common problems that plague other pipeline materials, such as clog formations, tree root intrusions, and corrosion. These benefits allow the pipelines we install to be more effective and last longer than other pipes, with an expected lifespan of fifty years or more.
