When your water lines and drains slow down or stop working altogether, you can always turn to Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services for efficient, affordable trenchless pipe repairs. Equipped with state-of-the-art tools, our expert technicians can quickly seal a leak, restore a deteriorated pipe, or even replace it completely with a minimum of hassle and a fraction of the cost of other methods.
Unlike outdated repair techniques which require that the entire length of damaged pipe to be dug up and exposed, our innovative trenchless pipe repair procedures can be performed through the built-in access holes in the pipes, called cleanouts. These holes function as small doors that a repair technician can open to remove routine blockages when they occur. We insert our specialized tools and repair materials through those small holes, eliminating the need for days or even weeks of noisy, dirty excavation with heavy equipment. The pipe is restored to full function while it’s still underground, avoiding expensive damage to your home or business building, mature trees, landscaping, drives and parking areas that can take months to restore. Even major trenchless repairs are hardly noticeable and take as little as one day, so there’s little disruption to your household or business.
Pipe lining is a great option if your pipes are maintaining integrity but have developed leaks, holes, or signs of deterioration. This trenchless pipe repair method can be used effectively on both incoming potable water lines and outgoing sewer, storm, or wastewater drains. To complete the pipe lining process, our trained technician inserts a soft tube that has been permeated with an epoxy resin into the damaged pipe. This tube is stretched to cover all the cracks and corrosion, then inflated until it completely fills the pipe. As the epoxy cures, it adheres to the inside of the pipe, creating a new cured-in-place pipe, or CIPP, that forms a replacement pipe inside of the damaged one. The new pipe is hard and durable—resisting rust, root penetration, and corrosion—so it’s a permanent solution that lasts for up to 50 years.
If your pipes have lost their integrity and become deformed, collapsed, or separated beyond the point where they can be repaired with lining services, we also offer trenchless pipe bursting as an underground pipe replacement solution. Rather than digging up the old pipe, we use specialized tools that move through the old pipe, crushing and removing it, then we insert a brand-new pipe into the empty space where the old pipe had been. The new pipe is connected to healthy pipes around it, all without the need to dig a trench through your property. Pipe bursting works well for pipes with complicated connections, such as those in industrial settings and high-rise building systems.
