One of the advantages of living in Burbank is its fantastic weather, which makes it easy to grow trees and bushes to decorate your garden. But did you know that having a problem in your sewer line could pose a threat to that beautiful landscape?
The pipes that compose the sewer line are buried underground and have to connect your house to the city sewer main so all the water from the drains can be carried away. If one of those pipes needs to be repaired, digging it out would be a process that could affect the grass and flower beds of your yard, and even the asphalt and pavement of the driveway. Whatever is covering the sewer line will have to be removed, and this is a job that can take several days to complete.
But we live in the 21st Century, and technology has improved the plumbing tools we use. One of these devices is a small sewer camera that can be operated from a distance. This camera is sent into the pipes, and as it travels inside them a video feed is transmitted to a monitor. Our technician uses it to check out what exactly is wrong with the pipes and to decide if we can perform a trenchless pipe lining to rehabilitate it.
What Is Trenchless Pipe Lining?
When a typical plumber excavates along the sewer line to access and repair it a trench is formed. Instead of digging a large trench, with trenchless pipe lining all we need to do is dig one small access hole. Meanwhile, we saturate a felt liner with an epoxy formula and then push it into the pipes. Once it reaches the area that needs to be repaired a bladder is inflated, which forces the liner firmly onto the walls until it cures.
After a few hours the epoxy will harden, and the bladder is deflated and removed, leaving behind a rock-solid liner that acts as a new tube.
Why Is Trenchless Pipe Lining Recommended?
There are many benefits of using this technique. The obvious one is that it involves minimal digging, so there is no mess to clean up and no dust that ends up in your lungs. An average pipe lining service can be completed in just one day, so you go to work in the morning, and come back home in the evening to find the problem solved.
Trenchless pipe lining in Burbank, California is also a solution for stubborn tree roots that keep penetrating and clogging the pipes. Once the liner is there, the roots will not be able to pass through anymore.
Finally, trenchless pipe lining can seal the pipes to cover any holes or cracks and can replace missing pipe sections, rehabilitating the line and eliminating any leaks.
