Traditional sewer repairs have become a thing of the past due to their inefficiency and time-consuming steps. Prior to any repair work being completed, trenches would first need to be excavated on properties, demolishing the landscaping and, at times, the floors within a home or business in order to even access the pipe, let alone repair it. The digging and excavation were not only damaging but required several days or weeks to be completed, resulting in customers needing to relocate to a nearby hotel to stay since their home was occupied with workers and onsite work that could create dangerous situations. At Option One Plumbing & Rooter, we are proud to have moved away from these processes in favor of alternative methods that utilize modern technology and techniques to be faster and more reliable.

Diagnosing The Problem
A general term for all trenchless-based repair processes, our trenchless sewer repair process is flexible and suited to fix a variety of problems that can be found inside of the pipes. Prior to any of our services being conducted, we first take the time to conduct a thorough inspection of the pipes. The camera is inserted into the pipeline with a fiber optic cable that allows our technicians to carefully navigate it throughout the sewer system. The camera is high-quality, capturing, clear footage of the pipe’s interior, and the footage is fed back to a monitor for our experts to assess and review. Through this inside look at the condition of the pipes, we will be able to determine the amount of damage inside of the pipes. This includes diagnosing complications such as clogs, leaks, cracks, and corrosion in the pipe. Once we have properly located all areas of concern and determined the best solution for each, we can move forward with any one of the sewer repair options that we have available.
Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining
Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is an advanced type of repair solution that is designed to fix cracks, leaks, and holes that may be found in the sewer lines. For this solution to be effective, the pipe is first washed clean of debris and waste, including tree root clumps, with our high-quality hydro jetting equipment. This equipment is designed to remove mineral deposits and other issues efficiently by blasting pure, clean water at high-pressures inside of the pipe with a hose and multi-directional nozzle attached to the spout.
Once the pipeline has been completely cleaned, the pipe is ready to be lined with our CIPP lining solutions. The process begins with a liner coated with an epoxy resin formula being inserted into the sewer line. This liner can be moved to any area in the pipe and is specifically positioned to cover the areas of damage and fix small sections of the pipeline as needed. This makes the process versatile and easy to install. After the liner is in position, it is inflated with an artificial bladder inside of the liner. This forces it to expand, and the pressure transfers the epoxy resin from the liner to the interior of the pipe. The epoxy resin covers and fills any corrosion and holes within the pipe. The liner is deflated and removed, and for the next several hours, the epoxy resin cures and hardens against the interior of the pipe. This allows it to seal away the presence of cracks, leaks, and holes in the pipeline. With an estimated lifespan of fifty years, cured-in-place pipe lining is a solution that is meant to last for many years.
Cured-in-place pipe inversion lining is similar in principle to cured-in-place pipe lining, but this solution is particularly effective for repairing large swaths of sewer lines, which can even extend to the entire sewer line itself. The liner is inserted into the pipeline in its inverted position and filled with air so that the liner inflates and inverts back to its default shape. This inversion process allows the epoxy resin to effectively coat the inside of the pipe and seal away problem areas.
Pipe bursting is another trenchless method of repairs. Designed to repair sewer lines that have completely collapsed, this process involves inserting a drilling head inside of the sewer line. This sewer line is threaded through the pipe, forcibly breaking apart the host pipe. This breakage creates more space for a new pipe to be installed. Behind the drilling head is an HDPE pipe that is pulled into position from behind it, making for a simultaneous installation process that eliminates the need for digging and excavation. This method is effective for replacing sewer lines without manually removing the pipe out of the ground, resulting in a much easier, more affordable repair solution.
