Repairing Your Cracked Sewer Pipes
Our Scottsdale, AZ plumbing professionals are trained and certified to provide a variety of options when it comes to residential or commercial sewer line repair. No matter how large or small the damage to your pipes, we will walk you through exactly what’s wrong and what the best repair options are for your scenario.
Excavation Sewer Repair
Excavation is the traditional method of sewer line repair. Depending on the extent of the damage to your sewer line, excavation sewer repair may be the best way to ensure that your pipes are fully repaired and stay in great shape for years to come. Excavation repair requires that the dirt and soil above your pipeline is removed to allow full access to the sewer line. Once repairs or replacements are made, the land that had to be removed is put back in place and allowed to settle around your new pipes. Through traditional excavation techniques do interrupt sewer usage, we are dedicated to completing your repair as quickly as possible, and any interruption should be limited to no more than one or two days.
Trenchless Sewer Repair
Most sewer repairs today do not require traditional excavation techniques. Trenchless sewer repair methods utilize state-of-the-art technology to fix cracked sewer pipes quickly and with minimal interruption or digging to your Scottsdale property. To repair your sewer with trenchless technology, we only need to dig one or two small access holes (rather than a large trench) on your property. This keeps your property intact and minimizes the amount of time that your sewage system is out of commission.
CIPP (Cured-in-Place Pipe) and Point Repair Lining
Zippity Split’s team of plumbing experts is certified in CIPP (Cured-in-Place) and point repair lining techniques. These two lining options can be used alone or together to repair and replace your cracked pipes. To repair your sewer line using CIPP technology, our local technicians will insert and expand fiberglass polyester resin tubes into your existing pipelines. This resin tube sticks to the interior walls of your pipeline, eventually hardening and setting to create a new sewer line inside of your old one. Point repair lining utilizes the same resin to do patchwork repairs, replace missing sections of pipe, repair bends in the pipeline, and to offset weak joints.
