Even if you’re not a plumbing expert, chances are you’ve heard the word “trenchless” at one time or another. But what exactly does “trenchless” mean and how is it used in plumbing? Trenchless means that there’s no excavation or digging of trenches required to carry out the repair or replacement process. At RAM Plumbing, we provide the following trenchless plumbing solutions:
Trenchless pipe repair in Tortolita, AZ involves performing an underground repair of a broken or damaged pipe through a small access portal. The pipe is first inspected and cleaned, then, a liner filled with epoxy resin is inserted into its interior. This is followed by a bladder filled with water or air to press the liner against the inside of the pipe. After curing, the bladder and liner are removed leaving a brand new pipe inside the existing pipe. This time- and money-saving technique gets your water flowing smoothly again quickly and with no excavation mess.
Trenchless Pipe Lining
Trenchless pipe lining in Tortolita, AZ is an environmentally-friendly method of repair that makes use of the existing pipe. It’s much faster than old methods of pipe repair, only taking hours to a couple of days to complete instead of days to weeks. The process also saves you from the expense of excavating and then restoring your yard after the repair process. It’s a no-mess and no-hassle way of repairing your broken or leaking pipes.
If your pipe is not a good candidate for repair, we would recommend trenchless pipe replacement in Tortolita, AZ. Like trenchless repairs, no excavation is required to replace your old pipe. In this process, a tractor-like device is inserted into the pipe. At the front end is a whirling blade that breaks up the old pipe and actually pushes it back into the surrounding soil. Attached to the rear of the tractor is the new pipe, which is pulled immediately into place as the tractor moves forward. The new pipe is joined with the existing pipes at either end and the finished product is a brand new pipe with a life expectancy of 10 to 50 years.
Trenchless sewer replacement in Tortolita, AZ is also environmentally friendly and much quicker than traditional pipe-replacement methods. Like pipe lining, the cost is much lower because there is no need to use heavy equipment or manpower to dig trenches, which also means no after-the-fact cleanup expenses. And trenchless means the job can be done much faster and with almost no mess or inconvenience.
