In the past, and even with some current plumbers, a leak or repair would require a plumber to rip out walls, tear into floors and excavate your entire yard. This not only causes a huge mess, but makes a plumbing emergency even more expensive and stressful then it needs to be. Miranda Plumbing Services utilizes trenchless repairs for almost all of their jobs, saving you both time and money.
When you discover a leak in your plumbing you may be unaware of the options you have for repair. One of our most popular techniques is pipe relining. Relining your pipes allows us to often save and reinforce your pipes to prevent further repairs and leaks from becoming a problem. Here is some information about pipe lining and how it works.
Unlike other plumbers in our area, we are able to offer our customers four different options for pipe relining. All of our pipe lining options can be completed without excavating your entire yard. We will make every effort to prevent damage to your landscaping, home structure and other property. We pride ourselves on leaving the site in the same or better condition than when we arrived. Our pipe relining options are cured-in resin lining, epoxy lining, slip lining and pipe bursting.
Cured in lining utilizes a liner that has been soaked in a resin solution. The liner is threaded into the existing pipe and kept in place with an air bladder until the resin has hardened. This method works well for large diameter pipes but will reduce the diameter of your pipes. The resulting pipe lining will be as strong as commercial PVC.
Epoxy lining is an epoxy solution that is applied to the inner walls of all of your pipes. The epoxy will seal off small leaks and fill in any pitting. The epoxy will not reduce the diameter of your pipes and is ideal for smaller diameter pipes that would be hindered by a loss of diameter.
Slip lining is the best option for pipes that are damaged but not deteriorated beyond repair. A new smaller diameter pipe is threaded into the existing pipe. This method obviously reduces the diameter of the original pipe, but the new pipe will be as strong as a brand-new pipe system.
Pipe bursting is used when no other option is available due to the damage of the existing pipe. Head is inserted into the pipes that breaks apart the old pipe and moves it out of the way. Behind the head, a new pipe is pulled into place. This is a great option for when a home or business needs to have larger pipes in their system.
