Expert Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

The most malevolent of household plumbing crises is a sewage backup. Your sewer line comprises all the pipe work hidden deep beneath your home. If you notice a clog emerges in your home’s drainage pipes, suddenly disappears, then constantly remerges once more in another random location it may signify something is amuck deep within your drain lines. Your sewer lines are responsible for redirecting your home’s daily wastewater from your toilets, sinks, bathtubs, and showers to your sewer lateral and eventually to the municipal sewage system where it is sanitized and properly disposed of. Eventually, your sewer line is bound to fall into disrepair if you haven't dealt with multiple, nasty clogs or the aftermath of heavy rainfall. If you outrightly ignore getting a trenchless sewer line repair you risk encountering contaminated wastewater being hurled back into your basement readily flooding it with sewage. Now you can connect the dots of course as the result is not only costly water damage but long-term detrimental health effects as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses invade your home and make you sick.

Our Vivacious Vancouver Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

A Vancouver trenchless sewer line repair is not something you’ll frequent as a homeowner and only takes place once in a blue moon for example from a burst and leaky pipe. Overall, a trenchless sewer line repair is a worthwhile investment as cast iron or more poplar PVC pipe will last up to 50 years. Utilizing innovative non-invasive pipe repair procedures we hunker down and at most dig a couple of small holes across your yard to access the pipeline. Here is how our expert plumber goes about a Vancouver trenchless sewer line repair:

Plumbing Diagnosis And Inspection

We are advocates of preventative maintenance and before any service work will conduct a careful inspection of your sewer line to check if it’s damaged for example with cracks, dents, or scuffs which indicates there may be a pesky clog within. A blockage itself is a nuisance because not only does it smother your sewer lateral and block your home’s wastewater from being readily expelled to the city’s sewer system, but it also deteriorates your sewer line and makes it more prone to leakages. Plus, if you are living in a pre-owned house rather than a newly built one it may have been too many years since your drainage pipes were last inspected and they will likely be chock-full of leftover debris. Our skilled plumber may need to perform a HydroScrub® jetting and give it a good scrub before we can attempt any trenchless sewer line repair or replacement. Through this examination of your wastewater drainage pipes, we can determine if issues apart from clogs may have surfaced while your sewer lines collapsed. One tool we use to help us with our inspection is a small, waterproof camera attached to a flexible cable and bright LED light. This camera is inserted into your drain lines to uncover the present state of your home’s sewage system as it twists and turns around bends and crevices to pinpoint troublesome spots. Plus, using a signal receiver relays information about differentiating smaller clogs from larger clogs so your plumber knows which areas to give priority to for a trenchless sewer line repair. Vancouver homeowners will notice that it records footage and displays it lives on the CCTV monitor for you to witness your plumber indicate not only clogs but hot spots for leakages evident by small cracks, fractures, and holes. This is valuable information for your plumber as not only will it help to determine the optimal steam pressure level for a hydro jetting service to clean and clear away your pipes, but now they will know how extensive the damage to your pipes is and what type of pipe repair they should perform, that is, either pipe relining or pipe bursting.

Pipe Relining

If after the drain camera inspection, your plumber discovers the damage is limited and reserved to only minor cracks or holes they will proceed with a pipe relining service for a Vancouver trenchless sewer line repair. Vancouver homeowners will observe our plumber technician insert a flexible tube stretching the full length of the pipe and this tube will contain a flexible pouch inside of it. Once the lining has been adjusted to the old pipe, the technician will blow up an inflatable pouch to the point where it pushes up against the inside walls of your old wastewater drainage line. Once the lining cures and hardens in place, the inflatable pouch is removed and replaced with a durable new lining without any cracks, dents, or holes that would typically result in a leak. This pipe repair method is foolproof and your pipes will remain unscathed for many years.

Pipe Bursting

If our footage shows that the level of damage is comprehensive, they will proceed with completely replacing the sewer line with a pipe bursting service. The trained technician will intertwine a new pipe atop the old one all without having to physically cut through your pipes. This is done by removing damaged sections of the old pipe with hydraulics and breaking apart the old pipe so the room can be made for a new one. Shockingly, it’s not all as complicated nor messy as it sounds and can be conducted within a full business day so there’s no need to book an Airbnb overnight.
