Our Efficient Pipe Lining Services

When it comes to repairing your sewer line, Ottawa residents often worry it will be an invasive service that displaces them from their homes and routines. We’re here to prove that it doesn’t have to be like this by offering our trenchless pipe-lining service. This quick and painless process can be done in a few hours, meaning you never have to deviate from your regular schedule. Using state-of-the-art technology and a certified crew, we efficiently line your sewer pipes to fortify them and prevent the need for much more destructive plumbing methods.

What exactly is a “trenchless” method, and why is it better than traditional sewer pipe repair? Traditional methods involve digging a trench in your backyard to remove old, damaged pipes and lay a new system. It's a huge process that involves excavation and will require you to leave your home for several days. Trenchless technology is faster and only requires one small hole to be dug. These services can be completed quickly. Here’s a quick rundown of exactly how our trenchless pipe lining service works.

Inspection & Assessment

Inspection will always be the first step before the pipe lining process. We need to know that your drains are the right candidate for drain lining, and during this step, we’ll use cutting-edge tools such as special video inspection equipment to look down into your drain line and discover what’s going on. It’s very difficult to understand what the root cause of a plumbing problem is unless we see inside your pipes, so this is a step that cannot be missed. When we take a peek inside sewer drains, we often see clogs, but sometimes we see cracks, holes, and corrosion as well. Other times there are tree roots that have invaded local sewer lines and, in some cases, pipes that are completely burst. As you can imagine, the way we treat each of these scenarios is completely different and may not always require pipe lining. Homes with extremely damaged pipes or tree roots will need sewer line replacement pipes or rooter services, while clogs can be resolved with our efficient drain cleaning methods.

Pipe Lining

If we determine that your drain or sewer line does indeed need pipe lining, Residents don’t need to panic. This trenchless service is the perfect solution for pipes that have pinholes, cracks, and corrosion. Before we begin lining your pipes, we’ll need to clean them thoroughly. This ensures that the tube we insert will adhere to the pipe itself and allows for the largest possible diameter to allow water to pass through.

After we clean your pipes with HydroScrub® Jetting, we’ll dig a small hole at the entry point of your main sewer line. Inserting a flexible “sleeve” soaked in epoxy resin into your existing pipe, we’ll pull it through to cover the affected areas before pushing in an inflatable tube that we blow up to fit the sleeve properly in your old pipe. When the epoxy cures, it will harden, and the inflatable tube will be removed. And just like that, you have a stronger, durable pipe with very minimal invasion to your home!

FAQs About Pipe Lining in Ottawa

We understand that many questions can come up regarding the process of pipelining. Our Ottawa clients are invited to give us a call to get all questions answered. Before you call, you may find our replies to some of the questions most frequently asked by our customers helpful.

What Are the Warning Signs That I Need Pipe Lining?

Pipe relining isn’t a heavily requested service by our customers; however, it is a solution that we often recommend after addressing concerns such as leaks, clogs, and sewer backup. Before we recommend pipe lining, Ottawa residents call us because they know something is off with their drains, they just don’t know exactly what that is. If you suspect something is going on with your pipes, it’s best to watch out for these telltale signs your plumbing will benefit from our pipe lining service:

  • Strange noises coming from your drain line (bubbling, gurgling, grinding, sucking, or banging)
  • Slow-draining water/water that doesn’t drain
  • Bad smells coming from your drains
  • Frequently clogged drains
  • Sewage backup from your toilet, drains, or bathtub
  • Toilets that bubble when you use your sink or shower
  • Lush green grass in one area of your yard

These signs may mean you need pipe lining, but they may also be signs that your pipes are clogged. The best way to find out if you need a specific service is to get an inspection. We’ll use video camera inspection to find out what exactly is going on down there and then choose the best method to solve it.

Is Pipe Lining Appropriate For All Ottawa Homes?

Piping lining is an excellent option for Ottawa homes and even businesses, but it’s not always the most appropriate solution, nor is it always possible. Depending on your unique property and circumstance, we may recommend a different method. Some instances when we suggest a different method include:

  • If your current sewer line or drain pipe has extensive damages
  • If the pipe is at risk of collapsing
  • If the existing pipe is quite small in diameter
  • If the slope of the trench isn’t pitched correctly
  • If the current piping system is outdated and needs total replacement

Are Pipe Lining and Pipe Bursting the Same Thing?

While pipe lining and pipe bursting are both trenchless methods of sewer line repair, they are actually not the same thing. As the name suggests, pipe lining or drain relining is a trenchless repair method that involves inserting a tube inside an existing pipe and creating a new fortified pipe barrier that covers cracks, small holes, and corrosion. This method is not suitable for critical drain damage.

On the other hand, pipe bursting involves physically breaking apart your old damaged pipe before sliding a completely new one in its place. Because there are varying degrees of damage that need to be addressed with pipe repair, there needs to be more than one option available to Ottawa homeowners. When we inspect the condition of your pipes with a drain video camera, we’ll decide which course of action is right. Both methods only involve digging 1-2 small holes for the insertion and removal of the pipe.
