Fix sewer drain with epoxy lining
Our client called us with a complaint that the water passed slowly and its pressure was very small. When our plumbers arrived they saw that the client had a problem with water flow in the sewer drain. This problem happened because of the tree roots that clogged the pipe. Also, the sewer line was located at a depth under the lawn, so it was hard to get access to the pipe.
Generally speaking we dug to get access to the pipe, and then we repaired the sewer drain by cleaning tree roots and epoxy lining. Steps our plumbers made to do this:
- 🔷 We dug hole with excavator approximately 3 feet wide, 5.5 feet dip and 6 feet long;
- 🔷 We fixed slope and offset;
- 🔷 We got rid of tree roots and installed new clean outs;
- 🔷 We repaired cracks and holes in the pipe with epoxy lining;
- 🔷 We backfilled and compacted after descale and epoxy liner.
- 🔷 We filled gravel the place, where we dug for aesthetics;
The first step was to dig a hole descale sewer line clay. We did this by cutting and removing all roots. After that we cleaned all the build ups inside the pipe. And our main step was epoxy lining to save the pipe from cracks. How did we do this?
- 🔷 Primarily a we pushed a flexible tube into the old pipe. The flexible tube looks like neoprene, and it is coated with a special resin.
- 🔷 Then the technician pumped compressed air into it so that it can blow out and cling to the interior walls of the old sewer pipe.
And the last step was to backfill and compact after descaling and epoxy lining.
If a pipe cracks because of an earthquake or natural disaster, the manufacturer will pay the contractor to replace lateral, at no cost to the customer. Customers must hire contractors to maintain the sewer pipe.
