A damaged water or sewer line can disrupt everyday life and lead to costly repairs. RAM Plumbing offers a reliable solution: trenchless sewer repair in Catalina Foothills, AZ. To better understand the potential timeframe of a pipe lining project, let’s dive into the process and its key stages.
Inspection and Assessment
Before beginning any work, a thorough pipe inspection using state-of-the-art cameras will be conducted. This allows technicians to accurately assess the condition of your pipes and determine if they are suitable for lining. Any blockages or other issues that may impact the trenchless pipe repair will also be identified during this stage. This may take anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the complexity of your plumbing system.
The liners used in trenchless pipe replacement are usually custom-made to fit the specific dimensions of your pipes. Because of this, preparation of the liner can take a few days to a few weeks, depending on the manufacturer’s production schedule. However, this is a crucial step in ensuring the project’s success and minimizing potential delays.
Cleaning and Clearing
The cleaning and clearing process can begin once the liner is ready, and equipment is set up on-site. This involves removing any debris or obstructions from the inside of the pipes using high-pressure water jets to ensure a smooth surface for the liner to adhere to. This can be completed within a day but may take longer if significant obstructions are present.
Lining and Curing
The actual trenchless pipe lining process is relatively quick, taking only a few hours to complete. The liner is inserted into the old pipe and inflated, allowing it to adhere to the inside and create a new, seamless barrier. Once in place, the liner is cured and hardened, typically taking a few hours to a few days.
A final camera inspection will again be performed to ensure everything is in proper working order. This final stage can usually be completed within a day.
