How to fix cracked pipes

Discovering you have a leaky pipe can be an utter nightmare for a homeowner. In the past, extensive damage to existing structures, disruption of your daily life, and excessive costs were a shoe in for sewer line replacement. Luckily, this is no longer the only option. The following highlights breakthrough method for how to fix cracked pipes.

What are my options?

A full sewer replacement for cracked pipes will be expensive. It makes drastic changes to your routine during excavation and installation, and causes collateral damages to the surrounding areas. However, modern approaches to pipe replacement makes these headaches a thing of the past.

  • Cured In Place Piping is a method that uses trenchless repair technology to access the cracked pipes and mold a new pipe inside the existing system. It involves cleaning and drying the existing pipes, then using an epoxy resin coating to create a brand new pipe inside the old one. This is one of the most effective and least invasive options.
  • Pull in Place Lining uses an epoxy saturated material and fixes it to the current pipes with heat. This is helpful for large gaps in pipes, and requires two small access points dug near the cracked pipe.
  • Pipe Bursting is for cases of catastrophic failure, a system beyond repair. A “bursting head” propels through the old pipes to break them. A new system is installed behind the bursting head. Like pull-in-place, this requires two access points to be dug.
