How We Repair Home Sewer Lines
Many homeowners wonder about the sewer line repair process and what to expect. When we perform a trenchless repair, we use Cure-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) and Spray-In-Place Pipe (SIPP) methods. The preparation process for homeowners typically begins with us checking each pipe and connection. We use a camera to check the drains and pipes for corrosion, blockages, and other problems. Our crew uses this information to plan the best technique for the repair.
The CIPP and SIPP Process
As detailed in an article on Purgula, CIPP and SIPP methods offer a no-dig or low-dig method of fixing pipes. If no easy access point exists, we create a small one. Our robotic equipment easily fits into a six-inch pipe. We clean the pipe and remove mineral scale, solid waste, tree roots, and other debris. For residential repairs, we use the most appropriate lining material from a large group of manufacturing partners to perform the right repair. Our team then prepares the two-part resin and applies it to the liner for a structural lining repair. Utilizing the right equipment based on the scope of the work is essential. We then deploy the lining material using specialty equipment to ensure the correct position within the pipe. We invert the liner and cure it with a calibration tube. The curing process bonds the liner and host pipe and takes about 3-4 hours.

When we arrive at your home for a sewer repair, you can expect us to treat you and your property respectfully.
