No one likes costly repairs, but sometimes they are necessary—especially when it comes to your sewer lines. It’s terrible, it’s smelly, and worst of all, it usually requires digging. It’s even worse when it happens to the public sewer lines. Imagine a burst at the busiest intersection in town—talk about a rush hour that stinks! Luckily, with manhole-to-manhole trenchless sewer repair there’s no longer a need to dig or to reroute traffic. You can get that rush hour back to smelling like roses (or at least as close to roses as a roadway’s going to get) by lining your pipes using our techniques. How Manhole-to-Manhole Lining Works? To line a sewer using our trenchless technology, it’s pretty simple. Instead of digging in and replacing the entire section of sewer system, we close off the section of sewer that we’re repairing, bypass the sewage back into the sewer at a point further down (which makes sure the service is uninterrupted), and get to work. We go into the sewer, after it's empty, and invert a liner filled with resin into the drain from one end to the other. After that, we circulate hot water or steam into this resin which, after reaching a certain temperature, begins the curing process. It will set into place relatively quickly (around 2 to 4 hours), after which we would then finish the process and open the sewer back up. The liner is rated for 50 years, which is a long interval considering that none of the pipe is replaced. Read More
