Trenchless pipe repair is a technology that allows underground pipe repairs with minimal digging and disruption to the surface above. This technology can save both time and money in several ways. Read the full article to learn how you can save time and money when repairing leaks.
Traditional methods of pipe repair involve digging up the ground to access the pipe, which can be labor-intensive, time-consuming, and result in unsightly deck patches. Trenchless repair methods require less manpower and time, which translates to lower labor costs. Check out our YouTube channel to watch full demonstration videos about using Pipepoxy.
Reduced Restoration Costs
Since trenchless pipe repair requires minimal excavation, there is less damage to landscaping, driveways, or structures on the property. As a result, you save on the costs associated with restoring the disrupted areas back to their original condition.
Faster Completion Time
Traditional pipe repair can take days or even weeks to complete, depending on the severity of the issue. A Pipepoxy repair takes as little as 3-4 hours which reduces the amount of time that the plumbing system is out of service. It can also minimize disruption to the household or business.
Improved Pipe Lifespan
Using the Pipepoxy Accimix to coat the inner diameter of the pipe will not only seal the pinholes, breaks, and separations but it will create a layer stronger than the original pie itself. This can extend the lifespan of the pipe significantly, potentially saving money in the long run by reducing the need for future repairs or replacements.
Avoidance of Additional Costs
With traditional pipe repair methods, you may also face additional costs, such as accommodations if the water supply needs to be shut off for an extended period, or loss of business if the repairs disrupt operations. These indirect costs can be avoided or minimized with quicker and less disruptive trenchless repair methods.
Trenchless technologies can also allow for easier and more cost-effective preventive maintenance. Using techniques like camera inspections, you can identify potential problems and correct them before they turn into costly leaks, breakages, or bigger separations.
It’s important to note that while trenchless pipe repair can offer cost savings, it may not be suitable for every situation. Certain types of pipe materials or severe pipe damage might still require traditional repair methods. Additionally, we always recommend conducting a comprehensive leak detection prior to using our Pipepoxy system. This will ensure you repair the pipe correctly.
