Trenchless Sewer Repair

Since Kendall has so many homes that were built before the 1980s there are hundreds and hundreds of miles of original cast iron drain lines which are causing widespread repeated sewer drain backups. In the high rise buildings the vertical sewer stacks have long cracks that leak into the condos.

In the past, the only option to replace the drains to stop the repeated sewer drain backup problems was to cut open the concrete floors and walls, then to take out the old pipe and replace it with new PVC and then repair the concrete and drywall.

But these days trenchless pipe lining can restore the pipe in a few hours by simply cleaning out old old scale and rust, then video inspecting it and measuring the length of pipe lining that is required. The pipe lining is saturated with a self hardening epoxy which heats up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit within a few hours. During this time the pipe lining has been pulled into the pipe and an internal temporary ballon is inflated to about 15 psi to push the liner against the pipe wall.

All the work is performed outside of the house from the cleanout. So the homeowner can stay in their property and a condo owner can stay in their apartments during the installation. This is a much more environmentally friendly process and cleaner then excavation and pipe replacement .

The pipe lining comes with a 50 year warranty and at the end of the installation a video is recorded demonstrating the inside of the pipe. As can be seen from the pipe lining video the new inner survice is super slippery with no pipe joints for root intrusion access. The pipe lining material is made of inert substances which cannot degrade if drain cleaners or any other chemical substances such as nail polish removers are poured down the line.

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!
