Pipes often fail or need repair due to the fact that pipes made of clay, orange burg, asbestos, wood, cast iron and other materials are past life expectancy. This leaves the pipe prone to blockages, corrosion, deterioration, cracking and collapsing.
Gremillion Mechanical’s Trenchless Pipe Lining Service allows us to repair most sewer or drain pipe with little or no excavating and without replacing the old pipe, as was traditionally the case. Instead, the old pipe is lined, creating a brand-new pipe within the old one.
Using the Cured In Place Pipe Process (CIPP), a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth or a number of other materials suitable for resin impregnation, is inverted or pulled into a damaged pipe. Once the resin is installed it cures in the existing damaged pipe and assumes its shape.
Our methods and state of the art equipment enable us to provide lower costs, shorter time for repair, less inconvenience to business owners, and less chance of damage to other utilities and the surrounding environment than conventional dig and replace methods.
