What's it all about?
The Trenchless Sewer Replacement Method uses the existing damaged or cracked sewer line as a conduit and guide for the new pipe.A Cone -Shaped steel bursting head with a "Shark -Fin" with new 1/2" thick black "PE" polyurethane pipe attached is inserted through the old existing drain line.
As the bursting head is "pulled" thru the original pipe by a hydraulic machine,the head breaks the original clay pipe into small fragments or "shards" that remain in the ground ,and shiny new "PE" pipe is "pulled" in its place.Once things are set up it works out to one foot per minute.
Only 2 small access "pits" about 3ft by 5ft are required for the process. One near the house and one near the street. No need to dig up or destroy yards and yards of expensive lawn, plantings or concrete work.
After installation of the new pipe, it is simply connected to the new system and the 2 access pits are backfilled and sod replaced.This code approved "PE" pipe is guaranteed for 99 years, is completely root proof, leak proof,chemical and acid resistant and insures years and years of useful life. Roots cannot get in because it is installed in one continuous monolithic piece.We also include a handy 2 way access clean out fitting to grade, so its easy to inspect or clean the line in the future.
We also include and annual video camera inspection with every trenchless job as a courtesy for our clients.
Please contact me if you or a neighbor might have a need for this kind of work. Wouldn't it be great not having to worry or deal with these darn mainline sewer stoppages once and for all?
We have crews in your area working on projects as we speak and most trenchless jobs can be completed in one or two days time.
