General Pipe Lining or Pipe Bursting or Sectional Point Repair

Inside pipe toronto plumbingWhen it comes to damaged water lines, pipe connections and sewer lines on your property, finding the best possible solution can be a little tricky… especially when today’s most advanced solutions come in various specialized forms, each ideal for certain types of pipeline damage.
Such is the case for trenchless technologies, which use cured-in-place epoxy Perma-liners to coat and seal cracking, fissures and corrosion to home water systems. How can you determine what solution (directional boring, pipe bursting, sectional point repair…) is right for your exact needs?
To find this information, you can do one of two things: either contact your local Toronto trenchless technology expert and have them inspect your home pipe line damage, or continue reading this article.

General Pipe Lining

For general pipe damage, such as those caused by soil shifting, cracking, penetration or other environmental causes, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is quickly becoming the go-to solution for Toronto homeowner nationwide. By using epoxy resins and plastic Perma-liners, trenchless specialists can fully repair your damaged pipe lines in a mere matter of hours with these techniques.
In pipe lining applications, a small entry hole is drilled to the existing pipe, through which the epoxy resin and a compression air bladder are fed. This resin is coated along the pipe in question, and cured-in-place as the air bladder expands. After a short hours’ time, the damaged pipe is completely repaired, without excessive digging or excavation to your lawn. This has huge savings implications on corrective landscaping and property renovation.
Pipe relining is the ideal solution for situations where corrosion, cracking or damages affect a moderate to large portion of pipe, but not severely enough to require full pipe replacement.

Sectional Point Repair

For pipe damages localized around a smaller area of pipe, such as a joint or isolated crack, trenchless sectional point repair can almost always fully restore that pipe section with the same epoxy solutions as full relining.
In these applications, trenchless experts will use two small, controlled entry points to insert lining resin and the curing air bladder. Once in place, specialists will cure the resin to the localized pipe damage section, completely resolving minor damages without having to reline your entire pipe. Trenchless technology is all about efficiency; sectional point repair takes an already efficient process and improves upon it, granting the same benefits as standard pipe lining in circumstances where full lining would be impractical.
No matter the extent of your home’s pipe damage, there are innovative trenchless repair solutions that can return your pipes to peak performance in minimal time, and with minimal effects to your property; best of all, these solutions are affordable under any budget.

Pipe Bursting

However, sometimes a pipe will be damaged so thoroughly, or situations so dire, that pipe lining solutions will be ineffective in repairs. In these circumstances, homeowners are forced with fully replacing their existing pipe.
Traditionally, this would require costly, property-damaged excavations, and long hours of manual digging and labor; pipe replacement under conventional means is an absolute nightmare for homeowners in almost all cases. Fortunately, these replacement methods aren’t necessary for salvaging your plumbing, as today’s advanced trenchless repair technologies can fully replace your pipe without ever having to actually dig the damaged line out.
By using a sturdy, conical bursting head, specialists completing pipe bursting in your home will literally burst through your old, damaged pipe, and seamlessly install a replacement line at minimal risk to your lawn. The replacement pipes, in these cases, are physically attached to the burst head, and slides into place as the bursting head cracks, fragments and pushes away the damaged pipe.
Pipe bursting delivers all the performance benefits of digging replacements, and avoids the costly lawn damage, labor hours and risks associated with it. Don’t worry if your home’s pipes are too far damaged for relining to be effective; there are trenchless solutions available in Toronto area that can fully replace your pipe with the same speed and ease as lining.
Today, the best way to handle home pipe damage is by contacting your local Toronto trenchless technology expert. The solutions they provide can perform effectively for decades to come, while costing your far less than any other pipe renovation method. With large-scale, digging pipe repairs, you’re only robbing yourself of the easy benefits that trenchless technologies bring.

Toronto Plumbers Tips: Trenchless Sewer Replacement

Sewer-line-replacement TorontoProfessional sewer replacement in Toronto has seen impressive innovations in recent decades, notably trenchless pipe bursting, among other trenchless, cured-in-place pipe solutions. Now the preferred replacement option nationwide, trenchless pipe bursting minimizes lawn damage and labor costs, while maximizing pipe efficiency. Simply, pipe bursting is the perfect solution for sewer pipes damaged beyond repair.

In this blog, we’ve gathered ten tips to help you decide if pipe bursting is the right choice for your pipe renovations.

1.) Trenchless Technology Keeps Disruption to A Minimum

Arguably its greatest benefit, trenchless sewer replacement keeps home, commerce and traffic disruption to a bare minimum. This is because almost the entire process takes place underground, without the need for extensive digging, or “trenching.”
Pipe bursting, the trenchless answer to pipe replacement, makes use of only two small holes at the ends of damaged pipe. A bursting head, fixed to a replacement pipe, is pulled through damaged lines, fracturing them as it passes. Because bursting heads are conical, and wider than the existing pipe, they efficiently clear the way for new pipes in a seamless application.

2.) Use Trenchless Methods for Any Kind of Pipe Damage

The range of trenchless replacement and pipe bursting applications is near limitless. These innovative technologies can tend to virtually any kind of pipe damage, no matter the source.

Pipe bursting may be the perfect solution for you if your sewer pipes have been extensively damaged by any of the following:

  • Improper or faulty installation
  • Loose joints and leaky pipe connections
  • Soil shifting and ground activity
  • Deterioration with old age
  • Subterranean animal activity
  • Root intrusion and biological activity
  • Chemical corrosion

3.) Consider Trenchless Solutions for Both Home and Municipal Systems

On the topic of trenchless applications, it’s important to note that trenchless pipe bursting is an effective solution for home owners as well as municipal city planners, sewer mainline restorers and commercial property owners.
With trenchless technology’s striking efficiency and durable results, the method has become a go-to pipe solution for municipal planners nationwide. Underground pipe bursting does not disrupt traffic or city commerce, and allows municipal traffic to go on as usual. Additionally, the whole bursting process is typically completed in a matter of hours!

4.) Avoid Dangerous Mold and Asbestos With Trenchless Technology

As pipe bursting requires minimal digging and is largely completed underground, there is little-to-no risk for potential mold or asbestos exposure, which can result from digging. This protects both the trenchless professionals replacing your damaged pipe and home/building occupants from serious health risks.
Harmful natural gases exist underground. Call Mister Plumber today to learn more about how trenchless pipe bursting avoids bringing these gases and elements to the surface.

5.) Trenchless Solutions and Preventative Qualities

For the proactive property owner, trenchless pipe bursting can prevent damages and further deterioration for decades to come. The sturdy, durable new pipes introduced with professional pipe bursting can withstand the intrusions, shifting and environmental changes that damaged your pipes in the first place.
For municipal sewer pipe applications, trenchless pipe bursting assures a long future of consistent, reliable pipe functionality. These pipes, inserted seamlessly into existing systems, can withstand virtually any external hazards, and give municipal planners peace of mind about their pipe line performance.

6.) Use Pipe Bursting for Any Kind of Pipe

Not only is trenchless pipe bursting efficient and preventative; it’s impressively versatile, and able to replace virtually any kind of pipe.

Effective pipe bursting can replace:

  • Damaged copper pipe lines
  • PVC systems, or other types of plastic pipe
  • Cast iron
  • Steel and aluminum
  • Clay
Whatever kind of sewer pipe you have in your home or property, trenchless pipe bursting can replace it. If you think your sewer pipes are extensively damaged, contact your Toronto trenchless plumbing professional today!

7.) Trenchless Sewer Technology can Repair Pipes, Too

Not only can trenchless solutions replace your broken, or severely damaged, pipe lines; trenchless technology can also be used to repair sewer lines.
Often, damage to a sewer line will be concentrated in a small source area, such as with root penetration. For sectional point repairs, trenchless specialists can use cured-in-place Perma-Liner to seal these cracks and intrusions. This same cured-in-place lining can be used to cover larger surface areas, and reinforce general plumbing lines, lateral lines and manhole-to-manhole sewer pipes. Trenchless technology’s broad applications have made these methods the go-to solution for pipe restorers nationwide.

8.) Trenchless Technologies Can Even Replace Orangeburg Pipes

Older pipe systems, manufactured from 1945 to 1972, are often made of fibrous paper and tar materials, known commonly as Orangeburg pipe. Despite a reported 50-year lifespan, most of these pipes begin to significantly deteriorate after only 30 years.
Fortunately, trenchless technologies can effectively repair or fully replace these aging systems in mere hours. If you notice lush, moist concentrations on your lawn, decreased water flow or frequent blockages, and you think your home uses Orangeburg pipes, contact your Toronto trenchless experts right away.

9.) Trenchless Replacement is More Efficient Than Any Other Replacement Method

Innovative trenchless solutions have become so widely accepted for their unmatched efficiency in pipe renovations. In almost all cases, trenchless pipe repairs and replacements can be fully conducted in a mere matter of hours, as opposed to days, or even weeks, with tradition pipe repairs. With these quick and seamless applications, labor costs and overhead fees are kept to a bare minimum.
Pipe bursting can even improve the flow and volume of your sewer pipes. As conical bursting heads fragment and push away existing pipes, they clear the way for wider replacement pipes, an option many homeowners take to improve their pipe performance, as well as replace damaged pipes.

10.) Act Sooner Rather Than Later

As any sewer pipe specialist will tell you, it’s far better to act sooner as opposed to later when it comes to pipe damage. Have your pipes professionally inspected at the first sign of damage rather than putting the problem off until it grows into a more costly, severe situation.
Staying proactive about your home or property pipe lines can save you from terrible hassle later on. Our trenchless plumbing experts recommend having your sewer pipes professionally inspected annually, to limit the chances of extensive pipe damage.
