AVOID Excavation through slab to replace cast iron drains. Trenchless sewer drain replacement lasts 50+ years

This 50-year warranty pipe lining stops backups permanently

Boca Raton is one of the oldest and most gorgeous areas in South Florida, and as such we have very old cast iron sewer drains in our high-rise condo walls and under our residential slabs. These cast-iron pipes have corroded over the years and 95% of them have a crack along the floor of the pipe which allows the water to escape, which in turn does not push the debris out of the pipe. This causes repeated backups in homes, and in high-rise buildings the crack allows the water to leak out into the units. The problem is that in Boca Raton the homes have travertine, terrazzo or marble floors and the high-rise condos have beautiful frescoes or tile and marble walls, which cannot be matched once destroyed for pipe replacement.

Fortunately, our pipe lining service in the Boca Raton area can restore the inside of these pipes no matter what the pipe material consists of, for example, clay pipes that have tree roots growing in them causing repeated backups. The process only takes about one day and it also only costs about 40% of floor or wall excavation for pipe replacement.

So the good news is that by making a quick phone call to us at our 24 hour hotline, we will explain the process to you and give you an immediate quote right over the phone. You can stop worrying immediately as nobody will be digging up your walls and floors.

Benefits Of Trenchless Sewer Lining (Cured In Place Pipe, CIPP)

  • No Excavation Required – no permitting and no inspections required
  • Less expensive – pipe relining costs about 60% less than excavation
  • Save Your Floor Tile/Marble/Wood – it’s usually impossible to find matching floor surfaces that were installed decades ago
  • Clean, No sewer bacteria in your home – since the drain is not being cut into pieces inside your residence, there is no need to sanitize the property afterward
  • Stay in your residence – pipe relining is done from outside, so you can stay in your residence
  • Speed – pipe lining takes 1 day, not 3 weeks as for pipe replacement by excavation
  • Environmentally friendly – pipe replacement by excavation means tons of waste concrete and pipe have to be disposed of in landfills

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 that 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 $100-$200 per linear foot of lining. It varies by pipe diameter, installation complexity, and length. It also is less expensive to install outside a building than under the building because of the installation method involved. Typically “air-inversion” is used outside, whereas “pull-in-place” is used under a slab. 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 the 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. Here’s a video of Hugo Forster jumping on a sample of relined pipe with the old pipe removed – he also beats it with a hammer!
