Saving the Environment
By not digging to repair sewer lines, we avoid removing all the trees, bushes and plants whose roots are instrumental in causing the deterioration of your Lateral Line. Your local environment remains as green as it was before we arrived to fix your problems.
Repair made easy
No backhoes, damage to parking lots or sidewalks, removal of trees or bushes… Residents are back in service the same day with no damage to their budget!
Because we use fewer pieces of heavy equipment, tear up less ground, and take less time to repair your lateral sewer line, our costs are less, and we can share those savings with you. We understand homeowner association and property manager budgets, and we know how to work with them to your benefit.
The sewer lateral line, often referred to as the lateral line, is the pipe that connects your residence to the sanitary sewer main pipeline that runs down the center of your street. Every water drain in your residence empties into the lateral line, including the sink, bathtub, dishwasher and toilet. Each house and townhouse has one lateral line connection to the sewer main, condominiums and apartments often have several units sharing a single lateral line. The lateral line is usually owned by the property owner, not the city. Consequently, maintenance, repair and replacement of the lateral line is the responsibility of the property owner.
The entire installation time of a cured-in-place pipe as performed by Lateral Liners, LLC. averages about 4 hours, depending upon site conditions and the quality of the existing pipe. We plan and prepare in detail to avoid disrupting the grounds as much as possible, and minimize any digging necessary.
Saving the Environment
The obvious answer is that by not digging to repair sewer lines, we avoid removing all the trees, bushes and plants whose roots are instrumental in causing the deterioration of your Lateral Line. Your local environment remains as green as it was before we arrived to fix your problems.
However, there is a bigger issue that we are working to correct, a problem that affects all of us who enjoy the fresh water and natural beauty of our rivers, bays and oceans. It’s a problem called Sanitary Sewer Overflow.
Jetting and Cleaning
Before any actual relining work is done, the lateral line is jetted and cleaned with a high pressure water hose. This operation is done by a professional who specializes in this type of work, assuring that no further damage is done to the pipeline at this stage of the process. Grease and accumulated buildup is removed, and any tree roots intruding into the lateral line are cut and eliminated.
Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP)
Lateral Liners, LLC. repairs lateral sewer lines using a method called Cured In Place Pipe relining, or CIPP. In essence, the CIPP method builds a pipe within a pipe by inflating a fabric liner soaked in resin inside the existing pipe, and allowing that liner to harden in place as it conforms to the shape of the existing pipe. The hardened (or cured) liner has the same structural integrity as a Schedule 35 plumbing pipe that would have been used had you installed a new pipeline. However, the cured-in-place pipe is a continuous, seamless pipe with no joints, and consequently, no single point of failure. The Lateral Liners method of pipe relining produces a relined pipe with a 50 year life expectancy.
