Walla Walla Washington is known for many things. Renowned wineries, abundant water sports, and even sweet onions makes the list. They’re also known for their proximation to the Umatilla National Forest. Packed with western pines, douglas firs and ponderosas, the Umatilla National Forest is a truly remarkable part of Washington, unfortunately for residents near the forest however it is also a risk for their pipes.
When fall hits tree roots begin digging deeper to prepare for hibernation. This is a dangerous time for your pipes. Tree roots are one of the most damaging, and common causes of pipe problems. A small root can infiltrate the joint in your pipe, or a crack in older pipes, and begin to grow. If gone undetected, the root will clog your drain entirely and even cause it to crack or burst. If this happens, it will be too late for a simple drain cleaning. You’ll need to operate.
Top reasons for your pipe problems
There are other reasons of course your pipes may need professional help.
- Pipes older than forty years begin to corrode and weaken, causing breakages in the pipe.
- Dislocated pipes from expanding soils such as clay are also an issue.
- Buildups of grease over time can form severe blockages 25 feet into your drain.
Know when to call professional help
If you notice any symptoms of pipe problems, such as foul odor, sewage backup, slow drains or recurring clog, it is important to call professional help. Quick fixes and ametuer plumbers will just end up costing you more in the long run. At Vietzke Trenchless we use the highest technology to get the job done in the most timely and cost-efficient manner.
First, our team will examine the pipe with a sewer video camera inspection to diagnose the problem. Taking a long fiber cable we send a high-power video down into the drain and play the video live onto a monitor. From there we can determine the best solution.
Trenchless Pipe Lining, the best solution for you
If you pipe is cracked and damaged, our trenchless pipe lining technology may be the best solution. Our no-dig methods prevent any property damage and only take a few hours rather than a few days or even weeks. After the camera inspection we’ll clean out the pipe with a high-powered hydro jet.
Once clean, we’ll use the video footage to pinpoint the exact area of the problem. Making just a small insertion through the joint of the pipe we’ll fill your existing pipe with an epoxy resin coating. Our epoxy resin coating dries within a few hours and soon you will have a brand new pipe inside of your existing pipe. This new pipe is guaranteed to withstand those pesky tree roots, and last for up to forty years.
