This particular customer was having an issue with an 8 inch storm sewer line that was severely jammed up with tree roots. Ironically, this Ashland area contractor Environmental Pipe Cleaning had been out to this same customer several months earlier and had provided the Ashland customer with a quote to have the storm sewer drain relined with trenchless sewer pipe lining technology. This is a sewer repair method that does not require digging, however the skeptical customer decided to have another contractor come in and excavate and replace the storm pipe instead.

Ashland VA Pipe Lining Sewer Replacement

After only several months, the new pipe was penetrated by nearby aggressive tree roots and the customer was having severe flooding and backup issues again. The advantage to having a sewer pipe relined with trenchless technology is that the liner is completely seamless and impervious to roots. As the saying goes, hindsight is 20/20. Environmental Pipe Cleaning, a contractor with obvious great integrity offered the customer a great deal to having the Ashland sewer pipe relined knowing that the customer had already wasted thousands on having a new pipe put in several months ago.

EPC brought in a heavy duty hydro jetting machine blasted the storm sewer pipe clear of heavy root infestation scouring it clean in preparation for the new seamless liner to be installed. The new flexible 8 Inch PVC impregnated liner was then cut to the proper length of 45 feet and saturated with epoxy resin. The liner was then loaded into a special inversion machine and shot into the Ashland storm sewer pipe using air pressure. Once securely in place, a rubber bladder is fed through the liner and inflated with air to force the new liner to conform perfectly to the interior of the host pipe. Once the liner cures (this is why it is called CIPP or Cured In Place Pipe) usually in just a few hours, the bladder is removed and there is now a super strong seamless “pipe within a pipe” impervious to root penetration because there are no leaky joint to attract them in the first place. These epoxy liners are rated to last for 50 years or more and come with a 50 Year Warranty against failure.
