Chula Vista, California Epoxy Pipe Lining
In the San Diego region, you can turn to us for all your plumbing needs. We are [SPT Pipe] and one of our many trenchless pipe rehabilitation services is epoxy pipe lining. It’s a form of sewer pipe repair that does not require digging up your yard. As a result, the work can be done usually within a matter of hours and often can be completed without disrupting your water service. In other words, you can have a new sewer pipe lining project finished without the noise and inconvenience of having no running water until the job is done.
How We Determine Where the Lining Goes
The pipe rehabilitation process begins with a sewer camera inspection. This allows us the opportunity to get inside the damaged pipe, assess the damage, record, and measure where the damage is and move on to the repair part of the process. We get the camera into your pipe by digging a hole down to the pipe connection. After we disconnect the pipe, we insert the tiny camera. The camera provides us with a closed-circuit feed that gives us an accurate view of the inside of your sewer pipe. We remove the camera once all measurements are made.
How We Prepare the Pipe for The Lining
For the epoxy pipelining to be properly installed, we must first clean the sewer pipe. We do this by using our hydro-jetting equipment. The hydro-jetting equipment includes a nozzle and hose. We send high-pressure water down the system and use the nozzle to direct it into the pipe. It cleans the inner surface of the pipe by removing any kind of buildup. Plus, the high-pressure water sends all other debris or obstacles down the line leaving a nice, clean surface to work with.
How We Insert the Epoxy Pipe Lining
The epoxy pipe is a soft sleeve-like product that is soaked in special resins. It gets pulled through the pipe to the proper position and then hot water is applied. This causes the resins to chemically react in a way that cures the liner. In other words, it hardens and takes the shape of an inner pipe inside the present pipe. If the old pipe had leaks, this new liner will not as it is smooth and strong. It is strong enough to withstand tree roots and all kinds of other issues that can break down a metal or ceramic pipe.
How Long the Epoxy Liner Lasts
Your new trenchless pipe lining will outlive the rest of your plumbing system. It will also be the last repair you will ever make on that pipe as it will last up to and beyond 50 years. Considering that length of time, the epoxy pipe lining will save you on your sewer repair costs in the long run.
