Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining Services

Pipe repair and replacement often come as a surprise for homeowners in Westchester County, New York. Some of us assume they are going to last forever. However, if you have avoided regular cleaning and maintenance, you might one day have to go looking for sewer repair options.

Pipe replacement through excavation tends to be more time consuming and expensive. The costs of the new pipe, digging, and restoration of original landscape tend to make the job more costly and tedious. We are offering a better solution- Trenchless Pipe Lining.

Pipe repair technology has advanced a lot in last few decades. We don't have to excavate along the sewer pipe route anymore. More sophisticated trenchless techniques are currently available to repair the damaged pipes in your home.

Certainly, you would like to have the damaged sections of pipe in your home repaired with the least amount of hassle and disturbance to your normal activities in life.

At Drain Doctor, we have more than 30 years of experience of installing trenchless pipelining.

The techniques currently used in trenchless pipe lining are:

  • Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP)

  • Pull-In-Place (PIP)

Trenchless Pipe Lining Techniques

Cured-In-Place (CIPP) Lining

We suggest this method principally for small diameter sewer pipes. Here we insert a non-woven felt tube with outer and inner polyethylene sleeves into the sewer pipe. We start by inserting a liquefied thermosetting resin into the felt tube to thoroughly soak the felt lining with the resin. A flexible pipe, also known as a bladder, is inserted into the felt and polyethylene sleeve assembly. We fill the bladder with pressurizing fluid to inflate the felt tube.

The thermosetting resin, when it solidifies after curing, forms an inner pipe sleeve.

The pressure inside the bladder is maintained for the time required for the resin to set. The required temperature of the pressurizing fluid is also kept to ensure complete curing of the new lining for the damaged pipe. After curing, we deflate and remove the bladder pipe.

Pull-In-Place (PIP) Lining

We recommend the Pull-in-Place method of pipelining for the repair of large diameter pipes. We start by pulling a felt pipe with an inner lining of bladder pipe. This continues with the whole length of the damaged pipe section, using a rope on one end. Our plumbers then excavate a utility hole of suitable size at the end of the pipe. This helps in pulling out the rope attached to the flexible pipe.

Once our plumbers have properly placed the felt pipe and bladder in place, the thermosetting resin is pumped into the felt pipe. They then pump inflating fluid into the bladder.

Our plumbers maintain the pressure and temperature of the bladder fluid according to the setting requirement of the resin in the felt pipe. We then give adequate time for the resin to solidify. After completing the solidifying, our plumbers deflate and remove the blader.

This way you have a freshly lined pipe with a slightly smaller diameter but without the hassle of excavation.
