No matter how careful you are, it’s inevitable that your toilets, sinks, bathtubs and other plumbing fixtures will clog or leak at some point. Not too many years ago, your only plumbing repair option was to have a company come out to your Fairfax, Virginia home or business and dig up a long trench to access underground pipes for repairs. The process of excavating the pipeline would tear up lawns, trees, gardens and hardscaping, leaving you footing the bill for a costly yard repair process – on top of the money you just paid to get your pipes fixed. However, thanks to cutting-edge plumbing technology, this does not have to be the case.
##Trenchless Lining Is Less Invasive
The VA Plumbing team offers trenchless sewer pipe lining to Fairfax businesses and residents, which is a relatively recent plumbing innovation which we can use to repair or replace a home’s underground pipe network without excavating the yard or destroying landscaping. There are two methods for this, both of which require minimal disruption and property damage.
Cured-in-Place Pipe Relining
The cured-in-place pipe lining technique requires one small access hole. With this solution, your plumbing technician pushes an epoxy-saturated pipe lining through the access point, then inflates it. When the epoxy hardens, it seals itself to the interior of the original pipe, repairing cracks and holes from the inside out.
If your sewer pipe has collapsed and is not a good candidate for trenchless pipe relining, our team will recommend the pipe bursting method. With this technique, we use a cone-shaped bursting head to fracture the broken pipe outward, while simultaneously slotting a new pipe into place behind it. Because this procedure takes place underground, there’s no need to excavate the sewer pipe.
Advantages of Fairfax Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining
Both these pipe lining techniques result in a brand-new, high-quality structural pipe that is rated to last as long as 50 years without requiring repair or replacement. Trenchless plumbing creates a smooth, joint-free new pipe that resists rust, corrosion, cracking and tree root invasion, while benefiting you by improving your water flow.
Since your VA Plumbing technicians will complete the entire repair process from above the ground, we will not disturb your landscaping, foundation, driveway or interior walls and floors. Trenchless pipe lining repairs also cost less than traditional dig-and-replace plumbing techniques, and normally have a much shorter turnaround time as well. In addition, trenchless plumbing has a smaller carbon footprint because it requires less fuel and equipment to complete the job.
