Any number of factors can compromise the integrity of your sewer and drain line, leading to potentially hazardous conditions for the public, which is why it is essential to fix a cracked pipe as soon as possible.

Common Causes of a Cracked Pipe
The health of your sewer and drain line depends on many factors such as the material used to construct the pipes, the age of the pipes, and the environmental conditions surrounding the pipes. Older structures typically built their pipelines with materials like clay, cast iron, and galvanized steel, which are susceptible to corrosion that can lead to breaks. Other common causes of cracked pipes include tree root invasion. In areas like Washington and Oregon where tree growth is dense and the root systems are expansive, underground pipelines can be infiltrated and blocked by invasive tree roots. If these roots are allowed to grow for long enough, they have the potential to break pipes open, resulting in extensive damage and potentially costly repairs. It can be difficult to assess the health of a sewer or drain system from the outside, meaning that only a trained professional can accurately diagnose the interior of your pipes with a thorough inspection.
Inspecting Your WA Pipes
To locate and evaluate the level of damage within your pipeline, our team of skilled technicians will use a waterproof, high-definition sewer camera. The sewer camera inspection process involves sending the camera into your pipes using a small access point, then our team will carefully review the live video footage of your pipe’s interior for any signs of corrosion, breaks, or cracks. Once the inspection is complete, we can determine the appropriate course of action to meet the unique needs of your property.
In the case of cracked pipes, one of the most effective and efficient services we offer is called cured-in-place pipelining, or CIPP lining. CIPP lining is the process of sending an epoxy-saturated felt liner inside your pipes, using the same access point that was located or created during the sewer camera inspection. Once in place, the liner is inflated using air or water, ensuring that the epoxy resin coats the interior of the pipe and effectively seals off any places where water or gas might escape. Heat is then used to cure the new pipe within the old pipe and after a final inspection, the new pipe is ready to be used. CIPP lining is an incredibly versatile solution because it works with almost any piping material including PVC, copper, cast iron, galvanized steel, and clay. In addition to being suitable for use on almost any property, the CIPP lining process is minimally invasive, requires fewer skilled technicians and less heavy machinery, and is an affordable pipe repair solution.
