Two Types of Trenchless Replacements
A pipe liner, also known as “cured in place pipe”, is a process in which a resin-coated, flexible tube in blown or pulled into the interior of the damaged pipe and inflated. After several hours the resin hardens, creating a pipe within a pipe that is jointless and corrosion resistant. Lining reduces the pipes diameter by about one-quarter inch, which doesn’t affect the pipes capacity to carry waste from your home. It typically requires just one access hole.
Pipe bursting is a method where a seamless pipe attached to a large cone shaped head is hydraulically pulled by a steel cable pipe through a damaged pipe while simultaneously fracturing it outward. This method typically involves only two access holes to be dug on either end of the lateral pipe. These new pipes resist corrosion and prevent root intrusion of trees. Pipe bursting can be used when and existing pipe is extensively damaged, whereas pipe lining requires and intact lateral pipe.
