Pipe Restoration General Work Sequence
The Inside View
Step 1: Pipe system diagnosis and set-up
Expose existing access points or create access points. The existing pipe system is inspected for integrity and breaks in pipe using a drain camera. Corrosion, roots and missing sections in the pipe are located. Temporary bypass drain piping provisions are installed as necessary.
Step 2: Pipe cleaning
Debris, roots and corrosion are removed from the pipes using a Nu Flow pneumatic cutting tool. A wide variety of different cutting heads can be selected for use depending upon the type of pipe system and the severity of the buildup inside. The pipe is restored back to its original diameter.
Step 3: Pipe lining
An epoxy-saturated felt liner with an internal bladder is pulled through the cleaned pipe system, using the existing access points. The bladder is inflated, which pushes the epoxy liner along the internal circumference of the pipe. This liner can bend through elbows, Ts and Wyes.
Step 4: Cure and System Evaluation
The epoxy cures within hours. The bladder is removed, leaving a strong, seamless, structural pipe within the host pipe. This protective liner will prevent future failures. A final leak test and inspection is performed.
