Storm Drain Repair in Broad Ripple
Storm drains perform the important function of ensuring proper drainage at your property, keeping structures safe from flooding, stagnant water, and rotting. Eventually, storm drains crack, corrode, or break. This can result in dangerous and destructive conditions to property and nearby roadways. NuFlow Indy offers storm drain pipe repair to clients in the greater Irvington area who are experiencing issues with drainage. We are experienced and ready to help you and your neighbors avoid disaster by lining your storm drain pipes with a safe, non-invasive epoxy resin formula.
NuFlow Indy uses a trenchless repair method called pipe lining to repair storm drains. Pipe lining is an innovative method that involves using cured-in-place-piping to replace existing piping. It can be used to repair most pipes, including storm drains. CIPP lining involves inserting an epoxy resin soaked into a felt liner into the pipeline and then inflating it until it hardens and molds to the inside of the existing pipe. Appropriate for use at both residential and commercial properties, pipe lining is an ideal solution for nearly any pipe repair. As a storm drain repair option, it provides a fast, safe, and effective way to fully replace the drainage system for up to fifty years.
The Storm Drain Lining Process
First, one of our skilled technicians will perform an inspection and clean out the existing drain to ready it for lining. The technician will insert the carefully-mixed epoxy resin into the pipe via an existing access point, eliminating the need for property damage or disturbances. The liner is pulled into place and inflated with hot water or steam until it molds to the inside rim of the existing storm drain. Eventually, the resin-soaked liner hardens into a new pipe within the old pipe, filling in cracks and breaks and reinforcing the pipeline. The new epoxy pipe produces the same output, is environmentally-friendly, non-hazardous, root-resistant, and anti-corrosive.
NuFlow Indy recommends trenchless methods, including CIPP lining, for all of our clients in the Irvington area. Trenchless solutions typically save customers time, money, and aggravation. By choosing pipe lining, you avoid paying for added manual labor and for property remediation. Instead of removing the existing storm drain and taking time and effort to replace it with a newer model, we make use of the existing structure and reinforce it. Best of all, your daily routine can continue as normal. For home and business owners alike, this is a huge plus.
