Our Full Range of Residential Trenchless Services
It is inevitable that pipes will need a form of repair at some point. Thanks to the trenchless technology we specialize in at AccuJet Iowa, repairing your pipes does not have to mean costly landscape restoration expenses. Any homeowner in Iowa will surely appreciate our approach to pipe repair and rehabilitation.
What Is Trenchless Technology?
The concept of trenchless repair dates back to the early 1970s. This is when an agricultural engineer needed to repair a duct above a mushroom bed, but a complete replacement was not a practical option. The solution became what's now known as cured-in-place piping, or CIPP. Since then, other trenchless methods have been developed, and the CIPP process has evolved to the point where it's more accessible and affordable.
Our residential trenchless services include:
Cured-in-place pipe lining is perhaps the most common way to restore pipes in a minimally invasive service. It's done by inserting a resin-filled liner into an existing pipe. After the coating cures, the result is a newly coated pipe that's solid, flaw-free, and like-new internally.
As long as the pipe is structurally stable, CIPP is often an option. It's also typically an ideal solution if the damage is generally limited to one area. While there are many things to love about CIPP, it's not always the ideal solution. For instance, if the affected pipe has collapsed, it likely won't be able to support a liner.
The CIPP Process
- An initial inspection
- A thorough pipe cleaning
- A secondary inspection to confirm that the pipe is clean and ready for the liner
- Inserting the resin-filled liner
- Applying heat to help the resin harden
During CIPP, you can always be sure there will be no extensive digging. The work is primarily done through existing access points. What's more, the original pipe is spared, and there's no surface cleanup to deal with. Additionally, we use Perma Liner technology to improve the results even more for our residential customers. Lastly, the process can often be completed in under 5 hours.
When to Contact Us
Having a sewer or drain line that's backing or doing other things out of the ordinary is a clear sign you may need trenchless pipe lining. You may also need pipe lining if you have older cast iron pipes affected by root damage. CIPP is a reliable repair and restoration method that can address a wide range of structural issues, which includes:
- Stress fractures or cracks
- Worn, loose, or damaged pipe joints
- Damage from soil or ground shifting
- Small gaps in pipes
Not knowing isn't good when it comes to sewer and drain lines. This is why one of the trenchless services we offer involves pipe inspections, which are done with a high-resolution camera. As we ease the flexible rod with the attached camera into the pipe, we can view the images on a monitor and record them for reference.
When conducting a camera-based inspection, our technicians look for anything out of the ordinary. This includes tree roots and any other blockages. We also look for signs of structural damage – e.g., cracks, fractures, or collapses.
Being able to address smaller issues sooner rather than later is one of the biggest benefits of having a pipe inspection done. Camera-based inspections also allow our technicians to recommend repair methods that are safe and effective.
When Inspections Are Ideal
Calling us to schedule an inspection is recommended if you're already seeing signs of a clog or other sewer or drain line issues. Otherwise, the general recommendation is to have your pipes inspected every 1-2 years. More frequent inspections can be beneficial, however, if you have older pipes, or ones near mature trees.
We encourage homeowners to be proactive about scheduling pipe inspections. Contact us to have an inspection done once you notice:
- Bad drain or sewer line odors
- Drain backups or clogs
- Slow drainage
- Odd sounds coming from drain or sewer lines
This is another powerful cleaning and clearing process we use to prepare pipes for trenchless repair when there's a need to remove stubborn debris. Our robotic cutting tools are extremely precise and accurate.
Signs of Sewer Pipe Damage
Robotic cutting may be necessary to prepare your pipes for trenchless repair if you are already seeing signs of sewer pipe damage. Some of the more common signs include:
- Recurring clogs
- Frequent drain backups
- Wet spots on your lawn or pooled water above sewer line locations
- Issues with multiple drains in your home
What We Use
Our highly trained technicians use robotic cutting tools to clear away obstructions. The cutters are extremely powerful, so much so that they can cut up tree roots, grind out rust and corrosion, and completely clear away any other blockages.
