NuPipe got a call from a customer, where the sewer ran out the back of the house, under a crawl space. The crawl space itself is very narrow and as you can guess it is very hard to work in. The line was compacted with heavy root intrusion, so when the contractor hydro jetted the line he learned that the roots were actually holding the pipe together. When this happens it is a complete game changer and drastically changes the scope of the repair needed. In the trenchless sewer repair lining world, this is one of the worse things you can encounter, because once you clean those roots out, the sewer pipe fails. Once the sewer pipe fails, that section can not be lined and it will require to be excavated. The section that ran under the crawl space collapsed on him and had to come up with a no dig solution as this is what was promised the homeowner. When you make a promise, here at NuPipe everything is done to keep that promise.

After further investigation it was determined the best way to repair the line without digging up the floor the technician had to go down into the very narrow crawl space, get on his hands and knees and hand dig the pipe out of the ground and repair the collapsed section. This is a job that no one would normally volunteer to do, you are basically looking at several hours, hunched over, hand digging up the broken sewer line. That being said, one of the guys did in fact volunteer to take on this difficult task and helped out the homeowner. It took several hours, however, he was determined to keep the word to the customer.
