Trenchless Sewer Repair
NuFlow St. Louis is the leader in trenchless sewer repairs, with advanced technology that goes beyond standard repair methods to both provide reliable results and protect your property. We can solve any sewer repair need with our patented trenchless pipe lining solutions.
Conventional Dig-And-Replace Pipe & Sewer Line Repairs Versus Trenchless, No-Dig Processes
Standard dig-and-replace sewer repairs are performed by bringing in large excavation equipment to dig a long trench that exposes the pipe so that it can be disconnected from the surrounding pipes and removed. While effective, the downside of this method is the extensive collateral damage that occurs during the process as concrete, landscaping, stonework, and even mature trees must be removed to expose the pipe or make room for the equipment.
NuFlow trenchless repairs, on the other hand, use modern tools and techniques that enable us to access the pipe through small, pre-existing openings that can be easily opened with a very small hole. We can often restore hundreds of feet of damaged pipe with just a couple of easy-to-repair, four-foot holes, protecting the property from damage.
How Trenchless Sewer & Drain Pipeline Repairs Work In St. Louis, Missouri
Trenchless sewer pipeline repairs offer several advantages over traditional dig-and-replace sewer repair methods. A typical trenchless repair takes about one to two days, as compared to several days or even weeks for a standard repair. Our repair methods also cost about half of a replacement because it eliminates equipment use, labor hours, and property damage restoration costs that accompany other methods. Trenchless repairs require a smaller work area, reducing the annoyance of navigating around work crews and equipment blocking your driveway or parking areas. The results are also often longer lasting: trenchless pipe materials withstand corrosion, rust, extreme weather, root penetration, and earthquakes for fifty years or more.
For small leaks, NuFlow St. Louis can restore the pipe with our fast, effective epoxy coating. We apply liquefied epoxy to the interior of the pipe, then allowed it to cure for a few hours until it forms a new, hardened surface that seals all leaks. Epoxy coating is safe and can be used to restore drinking water systems and potable pipes. In addition, the epoxy resin can also be applied to the interior of copper pipes, making it effective for both drain lines and sewer pipes.
Other Trenchless Pipeline Repair Methods
Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is another option that NuFlow St. Louis’s expert technicians may recommend. It also restores pipes with resin, but this method uses a pull-in-place epoxy liner to actually create a replacement pipe inside of the original. The CIPP goes beyond sealing pinhole leaks to restore missing areas and close cracks for a long-lasting, leak-proof solution.
NuFlow St. Louis can even replace a sewer pipe without excavation using our pipe bursting system. In this method, we insert a unique replacement head that our technician works through the pipe to break up the damaged one and pull a new one into the space created. Rather than weeks of pipe replacement work, we can remove the old one and put in the new one in just a day or two.
