At Option One, our team is readily available for all of our customers with a range of procedures that utilize cutting-edge technology to have all of your pipelines restored within a single day. Our sewer repair services are no different, and we are proud to offer innovative, practical alternatives to the traditional dig-and-replace methods.
Before the advent of trenchless-based procedures, a long, deep trench would need to be dug in your backyard, into the concrete foundation of your home, or into the parking lot of your business to reach and service your sewer system. Today, trenchless procedures need only a small hole to access pipes, which are repaired or even replaced completely underground. With new diagnostic tools available, the nature and location of your sewer line issue can be deduced before the job is even begun, as opposed to the previous reliance on speculation or digging the pipes out of the ground for an exterior inspection. Without time spent on digging and possibly mistaking the location of the problem, much time is saved on your procedure, often allowing us to complete the job in less than a day, as opposed to the days or weeks of traditional methods. Less mess and attendant clean-up costs, such as landscaping, also make trenchless methods more popular with our customers.
Additionally, trenchless methods are better for the environment. With your existing sewer pipe staying in the ground before, during, and after your repair procedure, less waste is produced and sent to a landfill. Our sewer pipe linings also have a lifespan of up to fifty years, meaning repairs and replacements occur less frequently, and produce less waste over time.
Though simple in concept, the sewer camera inspection is a powerful diagnostic tool, allowing our Option One technician to see clearly into your pipes. The small, high-definition camera is sent directly into your pipes, providing images that allow the technician to assess the health of your sewer lines, identify problem sites, and pinpoint the location of your problem. Once the problem is diagnosed and we have determined the best way to resolve it, we will employ the precursory steps to prepare the pipe for the needed repairs.
A step up from the traditional method of snaking, hydro jetting removes clogs with powerful blasts of water. Our technicians employ a hose with a specialized nozzle attached and insert it into the pipeline, allowing the water to cover the complete diameter of the pipeline and forcefully remove the buildup of kitchen grease, tree root clumps, or other types of waste accumulation. This tool ensures that your pipelines are completely cleaned and that their original diameter is restored, preparing it for the epoxy liner and ensuring that it adheres cleanly.
After these necessary steps are completed, our sewer repair can begin. A liner impregnated with durable epoxy resin is inserted into the pipe and inflated using high pressures. The resin coats the inside of the pipe, and is cured after a short period of several hours. With a longer lifespan than any other pipe material on the market today, this procedure can save you a lot of money in the long term. The liner itself can be trimmed to fit localized areas, or can be inserted through the system entire.
Regardless of the nature of your sewer repair needs, Option One has the procedure to accommodate all of your needs. Call us at 1-800-905-7115 today for more information on our work and how we can help you!
