Chicago Sewer Lining & Sewer Repair FAQs
Is it possible to install a liner through an existing stack or cleanout?
Yes, the liner can easily be installed through a four inch stack or an already existing outside cleanout.
Most residential sewers in my area start out as 4” cast iron and transition to 6” clay. Is this possible to line?
Our lining system and materials allow us to make a seamless transition between the 4” and 6” connection without any additional set-ups.
Can a sewer that has a 90 degree bend be lined?
Yes it can. The materials that are used are flexible enough to negotiate 90 degree bend making a smooth fit throughout the elbow.
Can a pipe with holes or that has missing pieces still be lined without digging?
Yes, even pipes with large holes or voids can be lined without having to dig.
Is it possible to just perform a spot repair anywhere in the sewer?
Yes, one of the major advantages of using Trenchless Innovations is our ability to tailor a repair to each specific job. We can make repairs anywhere in your sewer – from one foot to the entire length.
What types of pipes can be lined?
Most any type of pipe can be lined – including clay, cast iron, PVC, ductile iron and concrete.
How long can I expect to be without service during the installation process?
Customers are able to use their facilities until just before the liner is installed in the sewer line. The installation and curing process typically takes between 3-4 hours. Once the curing process is complete and the installation is verified by our cameras, the homeowner is able to immediately use their facilities.
What is the life expectancy of the sewer liner?
The manufacturer has designed the product with a 50 year design life.
Does sewer lining have to meet any certain standards?
Yes. All the lining products we use meet or exceed all ASTM standards for pipe lining.
Will trenchless installations save money over open cut trenching?
Yes. Every day more utilities realize the advantages of trenchless technology. More trenchless projects are being installed than in the past because of cost savings. Savings result from quicker installations, faster permitting and design time, fewer disruptions to business and residents, less damage to parks, trees and landscaping and less disturbance to road beds (and subsequent road repair).
How large of an access area is needed for trenchless replacement?
Our techniques can be launched through a cleanout. These techniques keep digging to a bare minimum, which saves money. Our system can also start and stop anywhere in the line which will reduce your material cost and make the job more affordable.
