Sewer Repair In Columbus, IN
While a large number of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings in Columbus, Indiana will require a major sewer repair in the near future. However, far too many property owners are completely unaware of the available choices and their pros and cons. When most people contact plumbing contractors for an estimate they are under the impression that we must dig a large hole in order to reach the sewer pipes that are buried underground. Nothing could actually be further from the truth. Sewer repair has come a long way over the last fifteen to twenty years.
Forward thinking plumbing companies, like NU Flow Technologies, now rely on advances in technology as opposed to destructive excavation. The good news for property owners is that you no longer need to worry about having your landscaping and hardscaping destroyed if a major sewer repair is required at your home, place of business, or investment property. You also no longer need to concern yourself with being unable to use the water or sewer systems for weeks on end while the repairs are being done.
At this point you may be curious as to what the other choice is, how it works, and why it is better than the traditional sewer repair method. Trenchless sewer repair was first invented approximately fifteen years ago and perfected by Nu Flow Technologies through the use of the Nu Drain pipe lining system. The process does not require the excavation of a large and destructive trench along the length of the sewer pipeline. The sewer pipes are reached through a small access point that is made at one end of the sewer pipeline.
A high-tech machine, which was developed by Nu Flow, pushes a felt liner through the sewer pipes. It is soaked in a specially formulated epoxy resin that thoroughly covers the interior surface areas of the sewer pipes. Once the epoxy resin cures in place a brand new pipe is formed. Some industry experts refer to it as a pipe liner, while others call it a pipe within a pipe. The newly formed pipe effectively seals any cracks, breaks, or leaks in the existing sewer pipeline. It also prevents future damage from occurring.
