A water main break may be unavoidable, but we know how to minimize the damage

When a water main breaks, it’s vital to get the repair done as quickly as possible. However, most of our customers are concerned about damage to their property because they envision a number of holes and trenches being dug in their yard and through their structure.

While trenching does cause this type of damage, our directional drilling equipment makes it possible to avoid costly collateral damage when repairing a water main. There are rare occasions when trenching is necessary, but our Seattle trenchless water repair techs are usually able to minimize property damage even in these situations.

Trenchless technology is our specialty, and it protects your law, driveway, and foundation from unsightly damage that is expensive to repair. Best of all, your lawn won’t have scars and gashes that act as a constant reminder of when your water main gave out.

By keeping our prices competitive, you can hire the best Seattle trenchless water repair company in the region to handle any sized job whether it be a repair or full replacement.

Seattle trenchless water repairs – Horizontal and directional drilling

Horizontal and directional drilling is a non-invasive water main repair technique that negate the costly collateral damage so common with traditional trenching and drilling. It will also save you a lot of money, especially when you factor in the cost of repairing damaged caused by digging holes through your landscape and structures.

We proudly work with homeowners, commercial entities, and government agencies experiencing water main blockages. If you’re seeking an environmentally safe alternative to traditional water main repair, trenchless technology is the answer you’ve been looking for. This is especially important if your property is located on sensitive wetlands or on other environments where preservation is essential.

Horizontal drilling is a technique whereby technicians drill horizontally through a single hole, eliminating the need to dig a long trench along the entire length of the pipe. This process is faster, cheaper, and far less invasive than traditional trenching techniques.

Our Seattle trenchless water repair techs track the drill head to ensure it stays on track within the pipe. It may take more than one pass to create the correct hole diameter, but once it’s complete the pipe is ready for seamless piping. The angle of our horizontal drilling bit can be controlled with almost perfect accuracy, guaranteeing the efficiency of our crew and maximizing your budget.

Horizontal drilling is not only a faster way to repair a broken water main, it’s also more cost-effective. It’s more flexible too, as it allows our water main repair crews to tackle any kind of terrain or geographical feature commonly encountered on a landscape. Soil contamination is kept to a minimum, and there is little disruption to the surrounding environment, so you can keep your property in its pristine state without being forced to spend a small fortune.

Seattle Trenchless Sewer Repair

Seattle trenchless sewer repair from the professionals at Full Bor

Replacing a sewer pipe doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Our Seattle trenchless sewer repair technicians use cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) technology to replace damaged sewer pipes without destroying your property.

If you’re a homeowner or business owner in Seattle, it’s unlikely you budgeted for a sewer repair job. As a family-owned and operated business, we understand that minimizing the cost and inconvenience is your highest priority.

If you’re facing a serious sewer issue, contact our Seattle office for a free inspection and be sure to read more information about CIPP technology below.

Seattle trenchless sewer repair – How CIPP technology works to save you money

CIPP technology is relatively new, and it replaces outdated sewer repair methods that were expensive and did extensive damage to personal property. In the old days, accessing a sewer pipe meant digging trenches through the landscape, driveways, and even into foundations. Not only did home and business owners have to pay for the repair, they also had to deal with the cost and inconvenience of repairing everything from sod to sheetrock.

CIPP lining eliminates the need to dig trenches because it’s inserted into one access point where it can be fed into the length of the cleaned out sewer pipe. This process is cleaner, cheaper, and far more environmentally-friendly than traditional sewer trenching methods. Best of all, the new pipe has a lifespan of more than 50 years, so you won’t have to worry about another unforeseen sewer repair expense for quite some time.

Seattle trenchless sewer repair – Understanding the process

Many people are unfamiliar with CIPP technology. The simple explanation of this process is that it allows us to replace a damaged pipe without removing it from the ground. How is this possible?

The new pipe lining is inserted into the old pipe after it is cleared from obstructions. It is then inflated with a bladder that presses it firmly to the interior walls of the existing pipe. One the epoxy is dried hard and smooth, the bladder is deflated and removed. What’s left behind is a brand new pipe that will last longer than many homes.

When your sewer line is blocked, our Seattle trenchless sewer repair technicians will do the following:

  • Video inspection of the sewer line – We first insert a camera affixed to a long flexible tube to ascertain what’s causing blockages and if there’s any damage to the pipe that would necessitate a repair. This state-of-the-art technology allows our sewer repair techs to develop a comprehensive solution to the problem so that they can work efficiently, saving you time and money.
  • Clearing the sewer pipe – There are a few different ways to clear obstructions from a sewer pipe, but it’s necessary to remove anything that could impact the creation of the new pipe. Hydro jetting is a process where we blast high pressure water into the pipe via a pneumatic hose with a rotating head. This scours the pipe clean while removing roots, dirt, grease, and anything else through the backwash created by the high pressure tool. This is a non-invasive, environmentally-friendly way to clear the pipe.
  • Insertion and curing of pipe liner – The CIPP is inserted into the freshly scoured pipe, where it is set into place with a bladder that pushes it firmly against the inner wall of the old pipe. The resin hardens into a brand new, smooth, durable pipe.
  • Final inspection – We conduct one final inspection with our video camera to make sure the new pipe is perfect and ready to provide you with reliable service for its entire lifespan.
