If you are interested in learning more about trenchless pipe relining, you likely may want to know how long the process takes. This is not a simple question to answer because it will greatly depend on the size of the project. To help you better get a handle on how long it can take, let’s walk you through the entire step by step process.
It Starts With an Estimate
If you are having immediate problems with a certain pipe run or area of your building, we can provide a quick estimate to reline those specific areas. These projects can be completed in a few days or less and with a minimum of inconvenience to tenants and little construction debris.
Opt for a Pipe Assessment
You can also choose to have us conduct a thorough pipe assessment. With our pipe assessment services, we review the overall history of your building’s pipes, repairs and materials. We use miniature cameras to visually inspect the inside of your buildings pipes cialis generico prezzo. This will tell us where pipe relining needs to be prioritized. We will then develop a specific plan to prioritize areas where pipe-lining should be completed first. Once under contract, we take complete ownership of your pipes. This means, even if you experience a failure in pipes not yet ready for relining, we will take care of the problem as part of our contract. This can provide large buildings with a long-term plan to address a significant issue. In this case, pipe relining of a large building could be a planned process over the course of years. This, however, is a much less painful option than complete pipe replacement which can be expensive, messy, and not very environmentally friendly.
How the Actual Process Works
Pipe runs or sections are first closed off from the rest of the building’s piping. Pipes are drained from the area undergoing relining and a fine abrasive material is introduced to “scrub” your pipe’s interior. This process cleans debris and removes rust and corrosion that may be negatively affecting water flow. Once this debris is flushed, the pipes interior is dried and heated and a safe, epoxy resin is introduced. This resins relines the pipe’s interiors, filling in holes and weak spots. It is now cured for a period up to 24 hours and will then be ready for use.
Small pipe runs can actually be completed in several hours. The process is much cleaner than pipe replacement, less expensive, and our installation services are guaranteed for 10 years. Tests indicated pipe relining can add decades to service life of a building’s pipes.
