Trenchless technology has become a standard practice of sewer repair in recent years. Before this new technology had been invented, old methods involved pulling up floorboards or lawns to get to pipes deep within the ground. With trenchless technology all of that can be bypassed effortlessly, saving time, money, and lawn rehabilitation, and at Marvel Sewer & Drain, we are proud to offer these services and benefits to our customers in St. Paul.
Marvel Sewer & Drain’s Approach To Sewer Line Repairs
At Marvel Sewer and Drain, we specialize in trenchless methods, and come prepared and are highly trained. We first start with a camera inspection of your pipes. This involves inserting a highly specialized camera into your piping system. With the ability to move through pipes, this camera shows problem areas in drains with pinpoint accuracy. This allows our on-site team to accurately diagnose corrosion, deterioration of piping caused by tree roots, weakening and structural decline caused by aging and more. Knowing what the problem is, our team can then expertly pick from a multitude of different methods in order to repair pipes accurately.
Methods can include pipe lining, pipe bursting, hydro jetting and more. Pipe lining, as well as our pipe patch technology, is where epoxy is used to cover structural problems in pipes. Our pipe patch method is meant to repair small cracks and fissures in pipes rather than relining an entire pipeline, but the process for both remains the same. Our team starts by placing an epoxy sleeve into the pipe that expands with hot water or air. This allows old pipe cracks or damage to be covered by the new lining. For a few hours after insertion, the lining is allowed to cure. After curing is completed, the pipe lining serves as a brand new pipe or pipe patch.
In some cases, pipes are so damaged or structurally unsound that placing a new lining inside of it would still be hazardous. Instead, our team uses pipe bursting methods. This involves a pipe burster to be inserted in the collapsed or severely damaged pipe. As it is dragged along the pipe, the pipe breaks open, allowing room for a new pipe to be inserted in its place. After the new pipe is inserted your sewer should be in running order.
For problems in piping that are less serious but still involves professional help like tree roots or clogging, hydro jetting would be the method used. Using highly pressurized water, hydro jetting involves aiming at problem areas to eliminate the clogging problem. Tree roots especially are difficult to get rid of, but hydro jetting can cut them away quickly and leave you with cleared piping.
