Sewer and Drain Systems Pull in Place

SEWER DRAIN PIPES are creating havoc for property owners. Sewers back up in homes over 750,000 times a year in North America due to aging lines, root intrusion, calcification and ground movement from seismic activity, costing homeowners millions of dollars in damage to their homes and landscaping, and millions more in increased taxes due to crumbling underground infrastructure of municipalities.

Sewer and Drain Spot Repairs Systems

Sewer and drain rehabilitation actually renews old, damaged pipes. A new pipe completely fills the old one – with absolutely no seams or joints. With such a smooth exterior, there are no gaps anywhere around the new pipe, leaving no chance for tree root penetration or future damage.

  • No inconvenience to the public
  • Permanent structural repair
  • High performance tensile strength
  • High performance compression
  • High performance durability
  • Stronger than original pipe
  • Bonds to dry and wet substrates
  • Seals infiltration and exfiltration

Pipe Bursting – Replacement

Pipe Bursting is a technique for replacement of existing pipes. The existing pipe, once burst, becomes the guide path for the new pipe being installed.

This technique bursts the old pipe and in so doing displaces the fragmented old pipe into the surrounding soil. This creates a hole of roughly the same dimension as the original. If a larger diameter pipe is to be installed a larger ‘expanding cone’ is used to increase the size of the hole. Once done, the new pipe is pushed or pulled into position.
