Trenchless Sewer Repair In Lafayette, IN
Your sewer pipeline is broken is a five word sentence that residential, commercial, and industrial real estate owners dread to hear. It can certainly mean that you are about to face an extensive plumbing project that will cost you $25,000 or more while destroying your landscaping and hardscaping. Not to mention that it will displace anyone that is living in or working at the property until the project is complete. It can end up being multiple weeks by the time a plumbing contractor excavates the trench, makes the sewer repair, and fills the trench back in with dirt.
That does not even factor in the time and money it will take to have the landscaping and hardscaping repaired or replaced. By the way, the plumbing contractor is not responsible to fix or pay for the damage that the trench causes to your lawn, driveway, patio, walkway, parking lot, or wherever else the sewer pipeline happens to run under. Fortunately, trenchless sewer repair is available in Lafayette, Indiana. Thanks to advanced plumbing technology, forward-thinking plumbing contractors no longer need to dig a destructive trench in order to repair the sewer pipeline.
Nu Flow Technologies takes it one step further with the Nu Drain trenchless pipe lining process. It was developed approximately fifteen years ago and the world of sewer repair has never been the same since. Instead of excavating a large area that runs along the length of the sewer pipes, Nu Flow plumbing technicians create a small access point at one end of the sewer pipeline. They use the small access point to install a continuous felt liner into the existing sewer pipes. The liner includes an air bladder that is inflated once the unit is in place.
The felt is saturated with a specially formulated epoxy resin that completely covers or coats the interior surfaces of the existing sewer pipeline when the bladder is inflated. Within a few short hours, the epoxy resin cures in place, meaning it hardens. The bladder then deflated and removed from the existing sewer pipeline. The cured in place epoxy resin takes the form of a pipe liner or a brand new pipe located within the old one. Unlike the old sewer pipeline it will not break, crack, chip, or leak.
