There are a variety of "trenchless sewer replacement technologies" available to repair broken sewer and drain pipe, and some of these techniques can even be used for new installation. Aces Four can assess the condition of your pipe and discuss which method will best serve your family and your property. If you are looking to preserve driveways, patios, walkways, or landscaping, you should definitely check out trenchless sewer replacement. Seattle is well suited to these techniques.
Aces Four was one of the very first sewer contractors in the greater Seattle area to utilize this new technology. Our crews have an unparalleled level of expertise in trenchless pipe replacement. Seattle terrain is perfect for pipe bursting which only requires two excavations. One hole is at the start of the run and one at the end. A concrete bullet/mole is pulled through the old pipe, crushing it, and laying new HDPE pipe behind it. Not only does pipe bursting allow for the preservation of concrete, asphalt and landscaping, it can also be more cost effective than traditional open excavation, because it can eliminate the need for concrete and asphalt removal and replacement. Remember that, depending on the work required, you may need a company like Aces Four Construction, that is registered for work on side sewer in Seattle.
Pipe lining can be a great solution if the break is located under a city street, as street backfill and restoration charges can be an extremely costly addition to your repair invoice. This method often only requires one excavation (at the start of the run). A high tech polymer liner is installed into the existing pipe. It molds itself to the walls of your pipe, plugging holes and blocking future root intrusion. The perma-liner will cure in a few hours and provides essentially a "new pipe" insert in your existing pipe.
Also referred to as Directional Boring, this trenchless pipe method can be used for installation of new sewer, drainage, and water line pipe, or for re-routing existing pipes. Only requiring two excavations (one at the start of the run and one at the end), horizontal drilling lays new pipe in a straight line between the two excavations. Directional boring can save time and money, as well as protecting existing concrete and asphalt and preserving landscape.
