Traditional Sewer Repair vs. Trenchless Methods

Traditional sewer repair methods typically involve the use of heavy machinery to dig up the surface and expose the damaged pipe. Because of the need to dig, replace the pipe, and fill in the hole, traditional methods can be time-consuming and may put a strain on a strict budget.

On the other hand, trenchless methods of fixing a sewer pipe do away with the extensive digging. We use state-of-the-art techniques and coating and lining products — Nu Line, Nu Drain, and Nu Tube — to coat or re-line the existing pipe. The work is done through small access holes only. What's more, Nu Flow trenchless technology is environmentally friendly, time-efficient, and budget-pleasing.

  • Nu Line is an epoxy pipe lining system that allows us to complete trenchless services without the need to replace the existing pipe.
  • Nu Tube inversion lining is an innovative product powered by Gadmon Industries. This inversion material meets the NSF-14 requirements for drain lining and the ASTM F1216 for the process.
  • Nu Drain has been successfully used in two primary types of applications: the ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP) method and the ’inversion’ method.

Symptoms to Watch Out For:

  • Rising utility bills
  • Foul pipe odors
  • Backups, clogs, or overflows
  • Wet or excessively lush spots where pipes/sewer lines are buried

What Business Owners Can Expect

We start the trenchless repair process by inspecting the problematic pipe. We do this to document problem areas and understand what's going on internally. The pipe is then scoured with hydro jetting, a powerful cleaning method that clears away debris.

Trenchless repairs can be through:

  1. A thin, pipe-sealing epoxy veneer: This is done if there are only minor flaws. The coating is applied in liquid form with compressed air.
  2. Cured-in-place piping: If there's more extensive sewer pipe damage, the cured-in-place method is typically used. This is when a liner is used to apply the epoxy coating.

Nu Flow AK’s form of trenchless sewer replacement is an ideal minimally invasive solution to repair significant damage to commercial drainage pipes.
