Piping Materials

The materials used to construct your home or business greatly impact the property’s functionality and longevity. For most buildings constructed before the 1960s, galvanized steel and cast iron were likely used when creating the sewer and drain lines. Over time, these materials become susceptible to corrosion, which can lead to complications such as diminished water quality, low water pressure, and potentially damaging leaks. In addition to the piping material used in the construction of your property, the age of your sewer and drain lines can also be a telltale sign that it’s time to upgrade your system. Knowing the approximate age of your pipes can help you determine the level of maintenance your sewer and drain lines require and help you stay on top of any potential issues.

Common CO Piping Problems

Because most sewer and drain lines are located inside the walls of buildings, below the foundation, or even buried under the yard, it can be almost impossible for home and business owners to accurately assess the health of their pipes. However, warning signs, such as gurgling or banging sounds coming from your pipes, water discoloration, low water pressure, a sudden increase in your water bill, or interior or exterior flooding, can all indicate that it’s time to contact a professional. Piping problems that vary greatly in severity can display the same symptoms, so it essential to contact a professional at the first sign of trouble.

Pipe Repair and Replacement Services

The first step to restoring your pipes to their full function is to determine the cause of the problem. In the case of older Colorado pipes that might have experienced a number of harsh freezing and thawing processes over their lifetime, leaks and cracks are a common issue. After conducting a minimally invasive sewer camera inspection, our team of experienced technicians will determine the health of your older pipes and offer a viable solution for your property’s unique needs. Some of the trenchless repair services we offer include but are not limited to cured-in-place pipelining, or CIPP lining, and pipe bursting. CIPP is the process of creating a new pipe within the old pipe using a heat-cured epoxy and it is often employed for sewer and drain lines with a number of cracks or leaks. Pipe bursting is employed more in cases of extensive or severe damage and involves breaking up the existing pipe to create an open space within which to lay the new line. Both methods are minimally invasive, cost-effective, and provide long-lasting solutions.
