If you are in the Chatsworth area and own a home that is over 30 years old, you may want to consider checking your pipes. Most homes built between 1945 and 1970 had Orangeburg pipes installed, and this is a source of concern for many homeowners.
While these pipes were once effective, their lifespan averages between 30 and 50 years and they will begin to deteriorate. Orangeburg pipes are also made up of only wood pulp and pitch, which leaves them vulnerable to water absorption and they will eventually lose their structural integrity. The loss of their structure can result in frequent clogs, indentions in your yard, or even a pipe collapse. Preventing this kind of damage to your home is imperative, as it could cost you an excessive amount of money to fix the water damage.
Fixing Orangeburg Pipes With Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter
To help you avoid this, Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter is able to offer a quick and trenchless method to restore your Orangeburg pipes. Our cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining method does not involve extensive digging or the removal of your yard or sections of your home. We just need a small access point so that we can have contact with your pipe. Once we do, we will clean the pipe and then insert a tube with a bladder. This tube is coated with an epoxy that will become the new pipe.
Once it is positioned correctly, the tube is inflated to force the epoxy against the original pipe wall to ensure that the original shape and diameter is maintained. Over the course of roughly one day, the epoxy cures to become the new pipe. We then remove the tube and your new pipe will be functional and ready for use!
