Below we provide more information on the Ottawa pipelining process and answer some of the most frequently asked questions in relation to the technology. It is our hope you find the content informative and that it may lead you to give considering trenchless installation as a cost-effective repair solution for your needs.
Rather than digging up existing pipe out of the ground only to replace it with new, the trenchless technology of today allows for the digging of one or two small holes in order to feed a pipeline into an existing pipe. The pipelining process is an affordable means of pipe repair – it costs less, requires less labor, and it does not involve the use of a lot of burdensome or heavy equipment to install. Both money and time are saved with pipe lining technologies. Whether the repair is at a business or home, trenchless technologies help ensure the least amount of disruption to your personal and/or work schedule for repairs.
Blocked drains have a number of different causes. Tree root intrusion where roots break through small cracks in the pipe and continue to grow inside the pipe due to moisture is one reason for a blockage. Often times a professional can get rid of these issues with the use of a water jet or eel: This is why it is wise to get yearly checkup of the sewer system pipes. Bear in mind that if the existing crack remains following root removal, roots will return again and again until the pipe is repaired: This is where pipe relining can make your life easier. The cracks can be repaired without any damage to the surface landscape of the property in question and it can help in preventing any future issues with blocked drains.
Pipe Lining – Is it for You?
In the past, if you developed a problem with the stormwater or sewer drain pipe it was not long before you were on the phone with a professional discussing the costs of heavy equipment usage, landscaping, and digging up the yard or property to get to the pipes in need of repair. You would soon be seeing dollar signs adding up in your mind depleting your bank account.
The traditional means of repair can prove so expensive and that is not even including the cost of additional complications that might be encountered in the process. Sometimes pipe work is beneath permanent and semi-permanent structures like buildings, tennis courts, pathways, sidewalks, and driveways. To remove the structures a professional has to come in with a jackhammer to break up the solid structure and remove the rubble before digging can begin. Now you are not only paying for the pipe repairs and digging, you are repairing whatever had to be destroyed to get to the pipes in the first place.
Thankfully, technologies like trenchless pipe repair let a professional reline the pipes for you so you do not have to dig up the pipe under the ground. As long as the damaged pipe is still sound structurally and just has some minor cracks or damage, a cured in place pipe can replace the broken pipe, quickly, effectively, and with the least amount of expense.
