Traditional methods of sewer pipe replacement can be disruptive to landscaping, and may even require, patios, sidewalks, garages and driveways to be dug up when pipes run beneath them. Trenchless technology eliminates disruptive excavation and its expense, and enables repairs that may take days, to be completed in just hours by a Platinum Plumbing plumber in Staten Island. Trenchless pipe replacement provides an efficient and cost effective means of repair. For repair on underground sewer or water pipes, call Platinum Plumbing for trenchless pipe repair.
Trenchless methods of pipe repair remain relatively unknown to many consumers. Platinum Plumbing uses advanced no-dig technology to repair underground pipes quickly and effectively, with little disruption to your property. With our expert trenchless services, there is no need to ruin your lawn.
Platinum Plumbing offers two types of trenchless sewer pipe replacement, pipe lining, and pipe bursting. A pipe liner, also known as cured in place pipe, is a flexible tube coated with resin that is blown or pulled into the damaged pipe and inflated. The resin hardens, creating a reliable pipe within a pipe.
In pipe bursting, a bursting head fragments the existing pipe, pushing the fragments into the surrounding soil while pulling the new pipe into the space. This method may require small holes dug to provide entry into the space for the bursting head and the new pipe. Pipe bursting is the option of choice when damage to pipe is too extensive for the use of pipe lining.
