Trenchless Sewer Repair In Carmel, IN
Though it’s hardly good news when the pipes of a sewer system fail in your home or business, NuFlow Indy offers a reliable, safe, fast, and minimally invasive solution that also happens to be environmentally friendly. Trenchless sewer repair is available in your neighborhood in Carmel, Indiana, as well as in eight other locations across the state.
With traditional pipe repair methods, a trench in your yard or even beneath your home must be dug to reach the problem area, after which the pipe section is replaced. In trenchless sewer repairs, precision assumes a greater role. A pipe inspection camera is introduced into the pipe to find the location of the damage and assess how best to repair it. To complete a repair, only a small access point is required, into which an inflatable bladder is inserted. The bladder is threaded through the pipe by our skilled technicians, and coats the pipe’s interior with a durable epoxy resin. After curing, the bladder is deflated and removed from the pipe, leaving behind a newly strengthened sewer system with a lifespan of over fifty years.
Though traditional methods themselves are generally less expensive, additional costs – filling in the trench after repairs have been made, landscaping and clean-up, and (if applicable) moving and replacing any heavy objects that may have been located over the repair area – can quickly add up, making it more of a headache and less of a savings opportunity. Additionally, while trenchless repairs can be completed in a day or less, traditional methods can take weeks, during which the water supply in your home may be off and your family might have to relocate to a hotel.
Another concern may arise if your sewer system as a whole is reaching the end of its natural life. This lifespan can be longer or shorter depending on the material of the pipes, how they were cared for (ex: pouring grease or caustic materials such as drain cleaner into pipes degrades them more quickly), and whether or not any external factors such as shifting topography or tree roots growing into pipes has occurred. The replacement of the system entire can be very costly using traditional methods, and you may save both your wallet and sanity by utilizing trenchless repairs or replacement.
