Avoid Expensive Sewer and Drain Repairs Now

robotic cutters for mainline reinstatements

Does your insurance cover sewer repair? There are a few we have worked with tin the Aberdeen, MD area that were more than helpful when we asked about their coverage.

Our Experience

We have worked with plenty of commercial property associations and maintenance departments. Having a good working knowledge of how your sewer systems work can help you avoid expensive sewer and drain repairs now.

CIPP seals broken cast iron, pvc, orangeburg, clay pipe and moreKeeping Your Sewer System in Good Condition

It is extremely important to be pro-active when it comes to taking care of your facilities. The last thing you want is a surprise in the sewer system to pop up and create a nasty mess. Regular pipe inspections are always a good idea to at least have an idea of what lies beneath your building.

CCTV pipe inspections can assure you that your sanitary systems are draining properly and smoothly. The last time we visited Aberdeen, MD our pipe inspections revealed many drain pipe problems that were 10 to 20 feet underground. Some of the repairs were simple fixes only requiring the use of our waterjetting services.

Trenchless Pipe Repair or CIPP

Trenchless pipe repair is often referred to as CIPP or “cured-in-place pipe” repair. Other methods have been known as sliplining, pull-in-place, pipe bursting and a multitude of other trenchless technologies.

Depending on the size and infrastructure of your property, trenchless technologies may be your best bet.

cipp liner for broken sewer pipe lining companiesAsk a friend if they know any plumbing contractors that are able to perform these types of procedures. Often times, especially in the metro area of Washington DC and Maryland, this technology can be a great way to save money. There is little to no digging required and the contractors will not have to break up slabs to replace the pipelines.

Deep Pipes in Northern Virginia

We have found that many pipes in this area require contractors to break up slabs of concrete sidewalks, roadways and large flooring areas. This destruction costs a lot of money to coordinate with the city. Most areas of Northern Virginia are concrete jungles and require tons of excavation to simply replace one or two sewer lines.

With our trenchless technology we are able to use our Perma-Liner and Maxliner inversion heads to completely replace pipes without digging. This pipe relining process is simple and just as effective as traditional pipe repair methods.

Often times the flow of your sewer system will increase and have fewer backups since the liners contain zero joints and can smooth bends and offset pipes. These liners can even connect entire sections of missing pipe.

Reinstatements with Robotic Cutters

Does your system have T’s or Y’s in them connecting them to other lateral pipe lines?

No worries here. With our robotic cutters and professionally trained technicians we can navigate your pipes from the inside and cut out any pre-existing connections.

robotic cutters for mainline reinstatementsOur pipelines often last much longer than their design life, which is guaranteed by the manufacturer for up to 50 years. Feel free to call us on our toll-free number is you have any questions about our services and we will be more than happy to walk you through this new technology!

What is a cured in place pipe liner?

jetter nozzle head

A cured in place pipe liner consists of two parts.

  1. A felt tube liner that is soft to the touch
  2. A mixture of epoxies

CIPP pipe repair materialsThe CIPP liner material

This fiber reinforced fabric is manufactured to fit into a host pipe. This non-woven polyester cipp liner material has a hard layer on what is initially the outside of the liner itself. On the inside of the liner is a soft fabric that is able to soak up and hold the resin.

The cipp liner thickness is the same as it is when it hardens. The outer shell of the liner is coated from the manufacturer with a polymer film to protect the liner from dust and damage during transportation.

Epoxy Mixture

The epoxy mixture consists of two parts. A thermo-setting epoxy mixture that mixes two parts of A, which is the base. This can be considered the actual body of the resin. And one part of B which is the hardener and the accelerator of the mix.  The levels of hardener of and accelerator vary depending on the ambient temperature. The accelerator is used to speed up the hardening of the epoxies in colder temperatures.

CIPP liner installation

perma liner epoxyCIPP liners can be installed in any type of host pipe. They are mostly used to rehabilitate sanitary sewers. Circular and non-circular pipes can be lined with this cured in place pipe repair. If a line is oval or egg-shaped, ovoid or even box culverts, the line will mold and form to replace the existing pipeline.

Cured In Place Pipe Liners Can Repair

Cured in place pipe is also used on storm drains. Many times storm drains will have leaking joints or are cracked. Tree roots often invade storm drains and can cause major loss of money or revenue to large businesses and installations. Infiltration and exfiltration can cost a business money. Re-lining an existing storm drain will completely stop and infiltration and exfiltration from occurring.

Water and gas lines can also be preserved with cured in place pipe liners. Trenchless technology has become an industry standard when it comes to replacing existing water and gas lines. Any type of pipe that has effluents or fluids that are harmful to PVC, cast-iron or any other pipe material can be tested and remanufactured to hold-up and contain any chemicals.

The thickness of the cured in place pipe liner can be designed to sustain loads of varying pressure. Depending on the surface traffic, external groundwater, soil types and weight a liner can be chosen that will hold up to external forces.

Prior To Lining

pipe jettingTo install a cured in place pipe liner, the pipe must be cleaned by jetting. This will remove any debris such as rust, sludge, roots and rocks. If a pipe becomes bellied or off pitch, this section of the pipe may have to be partially removed. A camera inspection will confirm that a pipe has been cleaned sufficiently to insert the liner.

Summary:

This article written by Scottie Dayton features Dynamic Drain’s targeted approach to fuel rapid revenue growth. Owner Nick Santoni, Donald Libby and Wes Fogleman work on a job at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.

This article reveals Nick Santoni’s inception of Dynamic Drain Technologies and it’s rise to conquer high-profile projects including lining pipes at the National Gallery of Arts, The Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Capitol Building, Postal Service Buildings, University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA and Theodore Roosevelt Island. Military bases such as the ever popular Quantico made the list of major plumbing jobs as well.

In June 2012, Santoni hired Mark Kolodziej as an SEO Marketing Consultant to facilitate search engine optimization marketing winning new business through online advertising. This approach doubled the company’s revenue within six months. Marketing and sales are a part of Santoni’s lifestyle. His team’s attention to detail has contributed greatly to his success by earning the trust of contractors to bring him in on their jobs. His full and part time employees clean, inspect and rehabilitate pipes using the ambient cure Perma-Liner lateral system or hot-water cure MaxLiner system. Without worry he can send in his Vivax-Metrotech V Push cameras and trailer mounted Mongoose 184XL sewer jetter with nozzles from Stone Age to inspect clean and clear any pipeline. Then RS Tecknik pneumatic reinstatement cutter will re-establish any connecting laterals after the pipe has been relined.

Success with innovation includes the MacGuyver award for fashioning a push-rod cable system with high-powered magnets to retrieve forks and other silverware. Other sewer machines and hydrojetters wouldn’t budge the metallic debris created in the mess halls that serve thousands of military personnel per day. They have also floated cameras through missing inverts by carving up foam footballs and fabricated custom welds to remove scale from sharp bends.

The Process and Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Lining

trenchless pipe lining
Posted on: 12 Dec 2013
Author: BlogMutt.com

Out with the old and in with the new; trenchless pipe lining offers dig free options for sewer pipe repair. In the last few years, innovation in pipeline work has allowed contractors to inspect, repair, and clear pipelines without disturbing ground. This saves the homeowner or business owner a lot of cash since repairs can be preformed without ripping up concrete walkways, driveways, or foundations.

The Process Of Trenchless Pipe Relining

New technology has allowed the contractor to rehabilitate pipe made of cast iron, clay, PVC, HDPE, ABS, and concrete using cured-in-place piping methods. Once the pipe is thoroughly inspected using CCTV technology, it is cleaned and the surfaces are prepped for epoxy. The damaged pipe areas are then measured and the product needed is cut to length. The pipe liner is then coated with a heavy duty resin epoxy. The new pipe is then inserted into the damaged pipe using an air pressure inversion device. The pipe liner and epoxy are given a few hours to set and dry. Once the pipe is secure, it is again ready for service.

The key advantages to using this method of repair include but are not limited to:

  • No dig repair so less ground around your home or business is disturbed.
  • The new lining seals any abnormalities within the pipe that may have gone unnoticed such as small cracks or holes.
  • The trenchless repair system takes less time and in turn is more affordable than the traditional dig and replace method.
  • The process smooths out offsets at pipe connections for better flow.

To find out more about trenchless pipe repair and relining, please  contact  the experts at Dynamic Drain Technologies. We pride ourselves on serving our customers using only the most sophisticated equipment and knowledgeable personnel. We provide residential and commercial pipeline services in areas of North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.

Rockville MD | Replace Pipe

chilled water system repair virginia

Our technicians can replace pipe in Rockville, MD inside walls, under concrete slabs and other valuable landscaping or infrastructure with no excavation necessary.

Replace Pipe

chilled water system repair virginiaWhen it comes to replacing pipe, no dig trenchless technology offers many cost saving and time saving advantages. When compared to traditional dig and replace jobs CIPP pipelining can be a viable alternative.

Depending on the surrounding areas, depth, traffic and value of the surrounding landscape and infrastructure, there are advantages to both.

If the pipe lays in a shallow area mostly covered by dirt in an out of sight area, digging up and replacing the pipe will most likely be the best option.

We can provide references to many plumbing contractors in the area if this method is advantageous.

Using CIPP to Replace a Pipe

  • CIPP offers the ability to minimize down time.

If your pipe is located in a high traffic area this may be a major concern for either your business or residents.

CIPP can replace a pipe within a matter of hours.

  • CIPP can completely eliminate the need for excavation.

If you are concerned about destroying walls, dealing with asbestos, endangering pedestrians and residents or destroying your property excavation may be out of the question.

Many times pipes will run under railroads, protected landscapes and many other undiggable areas.

  • CIPP will increase flow.

CIPP Liners for sewer pipe and drain repairIncreased flow and less friction are just some of the advantages of an epoxy liner.

Since there are no joints and no areas of weakness, infiltration and exfiltration along with concerns of joints causing backups is completely eliminated.

Electrical wires have nothing to get hung up on and waste will continue to flow smoothly.

CIPP Can Save You Money

All in all CIPP can save you money since there is usually only a three to four man crew required.

There are many less safety hazards involved.

Equipment and materials are all contained inside of trailers and no heavy equipment is necessary.

Advanced Technology Allows Trenchless Pipe Repair in Arlington, VA

Arlington, VA

Posted on: 5 Dec 2013

Many homeowners and commercial companies agree, the worst part of sewer or mainline pipe repair is the mess. In most instances, the pipe repair company must dig trenches and excavate around the pipe just to find out where the problem exists. Pipeline diagnostics have come a long way due to advances in technology. CCTV systems using digital display are the way of the future in pipe repair, allowing companies like Dynamic Drain Technologies to find problems within a pipeline without excavating your entire pipe system.

For commercial construction companies, pipe bursts and pipe damage are a constant threat. Due to the cumbersome nature of commercial construction equipment, preforming work around water mains and sewer pipe can be a dangerous endeavor. It only takes one slight wrong move to cause major damage to pipeline, this can cause residents in the surrounding area to lose water pressure or complete water service within their home or business.

By employing the use of ROVVER, Dynamic Drain Technologies can find the source of the problem and repair the pipe with minimal disturbance to the surrounding area. This innovative technology also allows the experts at DDT to repair pipe or clear blockages within pipe without digging.

CIPP allows the technician to rehabilitate existing pipe lines with a joint-less, seamless, pipe within a pipe. After inspection of the line, the technician can pinpoint problem areas within the pipe. He or she will then use an established access point to begin installing the new CIPP pipe. This method can repair pipe from 4 to 100 feet in length. This method can be used for sewer line, gas line, and chemical-type line.

The experts at Dynamic Drain Technologies have proudly served the residents of Arlington, VA and the surrounding areas with trenchless pipe repair. Please contact us today for a free, no obligation estimate.

Broken Sewer Pipes

point_repair_03 copyMany aging sewer systems contain broken sewer pipe sections. These sewer pipe sections can be located with CCTV pipe inspections.

There are also rising concerns of lost revenue due to infiltration and exfiltration or I and I. CIPP pipe lining will completely stop any I and I from occurring and creates a jointless pipe that is protected from points of infiltration in the future.

Sneaky Broken Pipes

CIPP seals broken cast iron, pvc, orangeburg, clay pipe and moreBottomless cast iron is a major concern for lots of businesses and older infrastructures. Many times sewer lines are flowing and not causing backups. The bottomless cast iron allows for water to escape before it causes a major backup so the end user never even realizes there is a problem until it is too late.

Regular CCTV pipe inspections are recommended for older infrastructures. Especially when buying an existing building it would be pretty dumb to not have sewer lines inspected. A lot of insurance does not cover existing sewer line damage so getting an inspection will allow you to be protected from future occurrences.

Sewer Tips for Buying Existing Buildings

This sewer relining project was inspected using a Rovver X Mainline Crawling Camera

Every insurance claim and insurance company is different so asking them exactly what is covered and how far the coverage is extended is one of the main concerns.

Do not take someones word for it. Either take a look at a prior CCTV pipe inspection or have them order one for you. Visually inspect the videos and look at any reports that identify defects and blockages. Consider the age of the pipe material and the grades and joint durability.
