Throughout the Delray Beach area old cast iron drains under slabs are rusted and broken . Most plumbers will recommend you dig up your floor to replace drains, but trenchless sewer line repair can install a new pipe liner that lasts 100 years, saving you 50 per cent of what excavation and pipe replacement would cost.

This 50-year warranty pipe lining stops backups permanently

We receive many phone calls from our quaint Delray Beach service area, where people are having repeated backups or leaks in a high-rise condos or homes. Most of the time these residents have had a pipe inspection done by a plumbing contractor, who found that the cast iron pipes have cracks in them or that clay sewer pipes had roots growing in at the joints.

The bad news that the plumbing contractor delivers is that the property has to have its floors excavated or its walls demolished the in order to replace the pipes. But in the Delray Beach area our properties are often up to a hundred years old and contain terrazzo floors or marble floor tile that can never be matched. Excavation to replace pipes is not really an option in these cases.

Fortunately our pipe lining process in Delray Beach is quite simple and can restore your pipes without the need for digging. The first step is to clean rust and accumulated scale out of the pipe . This is followed by a video inspection to determine that the pipe is ready to receive the new pipe lining and to see how long the new pipe lining has to be. Then the pipe lining material is saturated with an epoxy resin which heats up by itself through an exothermic reaction. The lining contains a temporary balloon that is inflated once the lining is has been pulled into the pipe. After about 4 hours the balloon is removed and a rock hard new pipe surface has been created inside the old pipe, reducing the internal diameter by less that 6%.

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!
