Philadelphia Trenchless Pipe Repair & Replacement
At TLC, our state-of-the-art trenchless technology allows you to minimize environmental and functional usage impacts. Most of our drainage clearing, pipe restoration and repair jobs can be completed within days, without significantly disrupting your commercial or residential property. Traditional drainage repair often involves excavation or displacement of existing landscaping, hardscaping, driveways, parking lots, and more. Our trenchless repair services, on the other hand, are economically friendly, reducing soft costs and providing a non-disruptive repair option.
TLC uses tools called water line slitters, which can easily be fed into either side of your lines to insert new copper piping. We also offertrenchless pipe bursting service, which also allows us to replace buried sewer, water, or gas pipes. This non-disruptive repair strategy provides a convenient, cost-effective solution without greatly interrupting your daily life.
TLC Drain & Sewer’s trenchless pipe bursting service works like this:
- Step One: Two holes are dug at either end of your pipe. A long cable is then inserted in one end of the pipe and pulled out through the other.
- Step Two: A new, somewhat smaller pipe is inserted using this cable, and fed through your existing pipe.
- Step Three: Once the component known as the “burst head” is secure, and the new pipe has expanded in place of the old one, the cable can be removed from your piping, and the holes can be filled at both ends, so your property looks good as new.
Root Intrusion Repair in Philadelphia
The tree roots in your yard are naturally going to be attracted to the moisture from your sewer and drain lines. Unfortunately, when roots grow too close to your lines, root intrusion can occur—this is where roots actually grow around and into your lines, creating leaks and blockages. Fortunately, TLC Drain & Sewer can use water line slitting to get rid of roots and repair your lines. Just make sure to watch out for this problem, since root intrusion can lead to significant property damage.
Common signs there are tree roots in your lines include:
- Lush, green patches in your yard
- Cracks in your foundation
- Nasty smells coming from your drains
- Drains that move slower than usual
- An increase in insects or rodents around your property
Hydro Excavating in Philadelphia
Hydro excavating is a much safer way of removing debris from a confined area than traditional methods. Large equipment is often not a realistic option in an area where there are many intersecting or parallel utilities. That’s why TLC Drain & Sewer utilizes variable-pressure water jetting to liquefy the soil and loosen the surrounding compacted filler, so that we can then vacuum the emulsion directly into our truck. This process leaves a clean, safe work site, and it means that only a small area needs to be excavated, rather than a huge portion of your lawn or landscaping. In fact, we can work down to a trench from just a few inches across!
Hydro excavating is a fairly common process but you may have heard of it by another name, including:
- Soft Digging
- Hydro Vac
- Hydro Trenching
- Safe Digging
- Don-Destructive Digging
- Vacuum Excavation
Pipe Excavation in Philadelphia
When trenchless solutions aren’t an option, TLC has the ability to utilize conventional excavation techniques to clean or repair your drain. During the open-top pipe excavation process, our contractors will carefully dig up your sewer or drain line, making sure it does not experience any additional damage. The dirt that we have dug up is set along the trench running the length of your drain/sewer line, allowing our team to easily access and service the line in question. In some cases, if you are only dealing with a small problem, like a small leak or crack, we can easily repair the line. Other times, when the line has experienced problems like significant root intrusion or corrosion, we may need to replace it altogether. In cases where we do need to lay new piping, the length of our trench may be extended.
While trench pipe excavation has become less common with the advent of trenchless technology, our drain and sewer experts are happy to provide whichever option best suits your property. Give our fully licensed and insured professionals a call to discuss whether to go with trenchless or traditional drain and sewer repairs today.
