Step By Step: How Trenchless Pipe Lining is Done

Traditional pipe replacement involves extensive digging and drilling to make way for the replacement pipes. Needless to say, standard pipe replacement was labor-intensive. At the end of the process, an enormous mess is left on your premises. That is why trenchless pipe lining quickly became the preferred pipe restoration option. With this technique, a small crew would suffice. Moreover, there is minimal digging, which effectively cuts the project duration in half. 

If you’re considering trenchless sewer repair in San Francisco, CA to restore your pipes, Sugar Bear Plumbing Company is the company to contact. Here’s how we go about the process.

Determine the Problem Areas

It is not strange that pipes eventually wear out and erode after some time. A pipe camera inspection can help identify the problem with the pipes. Once our trenchless pipe repair technicians have determined the main issue, we can plot out how to best carry out the procedure.

Clean the Pipeline

With time, the pipe is likely to collect dirt and debris which might make it difficult for the epoxy-saturated liner to penetrate the damaged pipe. This is why clearing out debris in the pipes is crucial for the efficiency of the trenchless sewer replacement process.

Measurements and Mixing

Our trenchless pipe replacement specialists will take measurements for reference when installing the liner. Then, the liner is cut and the resin is mixed based on the measurements taken earlier. 

Pour Into Liner

After the mixing process of resin is complete, it is then poured into the liner. Here, rolling of the resin is done thoroughly to ensure that the resin impregnation is complete. 

Load in the Inverter

When the resin impregnation process is complete, the mixture is spilled into the inverter.

Insert Into the Existing Pipeline

The next step is simple as it simply entails inserting the liner into the initial pipe.

Invert with Pressure

For the process to yield a positive outcome, air pressure is needed. Air pressure is essential as it enables the resin to invert. This invention allows the resin to join with the prior pipe.
