This 50-year warranty pipe lining stops backups permanently

 

The city of Coral Gables is riddled with rough fragile cast iron sewer drains located under the most gorgeous old homes that contain original travertine, marble or terrazzo floors.

The first sign of trouble is when the home experiences repeated sewer drain backups. The plumber comes out three or four times within a short period of time to snake the lines year to clear them of all sorts of clogs. Eventually the homeowner realizes that this repeated backup problem has to be solved and then the plumbing contractor performs a sewer video inspection just to find that the cast iron pipe is cracked or it has pieces of it missing or is partially collapsing. The plumbing contractor then insists that the floors have to be excavated for pipe replacement and that the homeowner needs  to move into a hotel for a few weeks. Then after the pipes have been replaced and the concrete has been replaced, the floor has to be restored all throughout the house so it will match.

This is probably one of the worst days a Coral Gables homeowner will ever experience. Fortunately some of you have had the luck or foresight to investigate pipe replacement options and have discovered that pipe lining is a viable alternative. In about four hours we can re-line the inside of a kitchen, laundry or sewer main line with a new 100 year pipe lining.

The pipe lining comes with a 50 year warranty and the homeowner can stay in their home during the installation. It costs about 60% less to reline a pipe than to excavate and place it.

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 afterwards
  • 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 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 $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 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!
