Trenchless Sewer Repair in Chicago
Rooter Flush provides trenchless sewer repair in Chicago from our location in Canaryville to the surrounding areas of Chicago’s South Side. We specialize in all types of sewer repair, including a type of sewer repair known as trenchless sewer repair.
Unlike traditional methods of sewer repair, trenchless sewer repair uses efficient, effective techniques such as sewer pipe lining and sewer pipe bursting that allow our skilled technicians to repair sewer lines without the need for excavation.
“No-dig sewer repair” is another term used to describe trenchless sewer repair. The reason why trenchless sewer repair is sometimes referred to as no-dig sewer repair is because excavation of the entire sewer line is not necessary.
Unlike traditional sewer repair methods, trenchless sewer repair techniques can often get to the root of the problem without having to dig up your lawn or the property between a building and the street. All that digging usually means traffic has to be rerouted too. And don’t forget about having to put everything back together again once the problem has been solved.
Because trenchless sewer repair is less invasive and labor-intensive, it can cost less and takes less time than traditional sewer repair methods.
Trenchless sewer repair techniques aren’t just a quick fix either. For instance, the HDPE pipes used in sewer pipe bursting can last anywhere between 50 to 100 years.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Services
Sewer Pipe Lining
Sewer pipe lining is a process that involves inserting an epoxy-soaked liner into a damaged pipe in need of repair. The liner is then inflated and left to cure and harden for a few hours. This allows the epoxy to seal the inner walls of the existing pipe. Once that’s done, the liner is removed. It’s a quick, cost-effective fix that has the potential to last for decades.
Sewer Pipe Bursting
This trenchless technique known as pipe bursting replaces a damaged pipe by breaking the old, damaged pipe while simultaneously pulling in a new HDPE pipe to take its place. A winch with a cone-shaped bursting head is used to break up the old pipe. As the bursting head is pulled through the pipe, space is made for the new pipe, which follows directly behind the bursting head.
Sewer Pipe Descaling
Sometimes sewer repair doesn’t entail fixing a damaged pipe, but rather a thorough cleaning. Over time, debris and wastewater can form a substance known as scale, which clogs pipes and restricts the flow of water. Sewer pipe descaling is the process of removing obstructions in pipes through the use of specialized tools in order to restore normal waterflow. Sewer rodding and hydro jetting are two types of sewer pipe descaling.
Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair
Trenchless sewer line repairs generally take less time than conventional sewer repair methods. Whereas traditional methods take days to complete because excavation is required, trenchless repairs can take only a matter of hours.
Saves Money in Many Cases
Because trenchless sewer line repairs avoid the need for major excavation, and therefore require less labor hours, you will most likely end up having to spend far less.
