Not Your Typical “Trenchless Today” Job

Troy, NY – This was not your typical “Trenchless Today” job, the crew HAD to dig a trench this time!  A customer was having an issue with his sewer line going to his septic tank. After our technician was on site, he determined that the house trap inside the basement had settled below the concrete floor. The line going to the tank also settled, causing bellies in the line, and allowing waste to get stuck up. The best solution was to jackhammer the concrete in the basement and remove the old cast iron house trap. The crew replaced the trap with a new PVC trap, and it was properly installed so there would be no settling below the concrete. The crew then ran a new 4” PVC line from the newly installed house trap, out to the septic tank. The new line was installed with the proper pitch, ensuring there would be no bellies. After the line was installed, the crew backfilled the trench and leveled out the work area to grade. The job duration was one day, including mobilization, set up, prep, and tear down.

Cleaning Up a Failed Liner – 15″ Saltwater Pool Line in Rye, NJ

Rye, NY – A popular country club in Rye, NY was having issues with a drain line they had lined 5 years prior. The drain line was a 15″ line, that was used for their saltwater pool.

There was a section of pipe that was almost completely collapsed. This was not allowing the line to properly drain.

We can save your pipes using CIPP technology.

We took a couple before and after pictures of a recent liner job we completed. Look at the difference. You can see from the original (before cipp lining photo) the old host pipe was corroded, rusty and had breaks all up the liner from 18ft to 36ft downstream. This pipe damage was most likely caused by root intrusion and ground settlement. Over time all host pipes will fail but you do not always need to dig and replace them. Our cured-in-place technology allows for us to reline the interior of the old host pipe and this completely builds a new pipe within the old host pipe.
