Sewer & Drain Line Pipe Coating
Sewer and drain issues? Sewer backups? Fix the problem for good without the hassle of digging up your whole sewer line. No dig technology saves the hassle of digging up your landscape, driveway, floors, walls, and street.
What is Pipe Coating?
Pipe Coating is a safe, fast, and eco-friendly trenchless repair method. It allows us to extend the life of your existing sewer or drain pipes without having to dig them up.
Using a specialized machine with a rotating brush, we apply a specialized epoxy resin in coats to seal and restore bad sections of pipe. Saving on downtime and costs of traditional repair methods.
Pipe Coating Process (In steps)
The first step before pipe coating installation is to perform a sewer video camera inspection of your sewer or drain pipes.
During our sewer camera inspection we will determine the amount of footage, diameter of sewer pipe, defects in pipe such as cracks, tree roots, offsets, bellies, etc. Our technician will also determine at this time if your sewer or drain pipe can be coated based off their findings.
The 2nd step is to clean out your sewer or drain pipes. Depending on the results of the sewer camera inspection, there are a variety of cleaning methods. A couple of these methods used to clean the sewer or drain pipes are Hydro Jetting and Pipe Descaling.
Both of these methods will remove roots, buildup, and blockages to prep for Pipe Coating installation.
After the first 2 steps are completed and the sewer drain pipe is cleaned, the pipe is ready for pipe coating. A special rotating brush is inserted into the line and resin is applied while the brush rotates and coats the resin on the existing sewer pipe. Typically 2-3 coats are applied. The resin usually dries within 3-12 hours, and is completely hardened in seven days. You can start using your sewer line again after 12 - 24 hours.
