Where Can Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Be Used In Delray Beach?
Cured in place pipe lining can be used in any property and in almost any type. It is commonly used in retirement homes, hospitals, factories and in South Florida we restore approximately seven houses per week in the area from Port Saint Lucie all way down to Miami. In every case we save the homeowner the inconvenience of having to move out for three or four weeks while we plumbers excavate the floors, cut out the old dirty sewer pipes and replace them with PVC and replace the concrete. Then comes the arduous task of restoring the floor surface which might be marble or a tile which is no longer available. In such case the entire house may have to be re-tiled.
Because of the cost of hotel stays and floor restoration, trenchless sewer lining saves property owners at least 50% over excavation.
How Is This 50-Year Warranty Trenchless Sewer Line Installed?
From outside your property we open the pipe, clean out the rust, scale and roots, and then install a new “pipe liner” or sleeve which has been saturated with a special self-hardening epoxy resin. The liner contains a balloon which is inflated for 3 hours while the resin becomes rock-hard. Then the balloon is removed and a video inspection is performed to ensure correct installation. The pipe is put back into use within 1 day. Learn more pipe lining installation details here.

How Much Does Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Cost In South Florida Region?
For residential purposes, from $150-$200 per linear foot of lining. It varies by pipe diameter, installation complexity, and customer attitude. For Commercial purposes, $175-$225 per linear foot. Commercial installation would be high-rise buildings, factories, shopping malls etc. These installations are more complex since pipe downtime, even for just 4 hours, usually has an enormous impact on tenants and can cause much economic impact for any loss of use of pipe. Note also, every trenchless pipe lining company will have a minimum charge in order to mobilize their expensive equipment and trained crew. For more specific costs, go here.
How Strong Is The Pipe Lining?
The pipe liner is a fabric tube made of polyester which is then “wet out” with a 2-part epoxy resin which is mixed together in a certain proportion. In about 30 minutes resin heats up by itself to 180 degrees Fahrenheit due to an exothermic chemical reaction and becomes rock hard.
The resulting new inner pipe liner is so strong that it is a stand-alone pipe, not needing the old exterior pipe for structural integrity. The liner is designed to go under load bearing footers, roads, driveways etc.
