Throughout the Fort Lauderdale 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.

Rusted cast iron drains before trenchless pipe lining

This 50-year warranty pipe lining stops backups permanently

Our homes and high rise buildings in Fort Lauderdale that were built before 1980 contain cast iron drains in the floors and walls that have corroded so much that they are now leaking and causing frequent clogs.

The old fashioned way to solve this problem would be to dig up the concrete floors and to open up the drywall or concrete walls inside the buildings and replace the old cast iron with new PVC plumbing. The problem with the old fashioned process is that it is very expensive, it makes a huge mess, tenants have to move in to hotels and the surfaces have to be restored. But in most cases the travertine, tile or marble surface cannot be matched to the old original surface so the entire property has to be redecorated with an inferior less-nostalgic material.

The alternative method we use these days in South Florida and actually throughout the United States, is to re-line the inside of the pipe with a 100-year pipe lining material that takes about one day to install. It cost about 40% as much as pipe excavation and surface replacement. No permits have to be pulled and no inspections have to be performed by the city of Fort Lauderdale because the pipe lining process is considered to be a repair not a pipe replacement.

So why in the world would anybody still dig up their properties to replace the old pipes the old fashioned way? Well if you read below you will see there is a section relating to the lies that plumbing contractors will tell you in order to keep your money instead of you paying a lot less to get the pipe re-lined.

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!
