Traditional Drain and Sewer Repairs
Are you having repeat drain backups? Is your drain clogged and can’t be cleared? The EPA tells us that about 70 to 80% of Raw Sewage Overflow events are caused by damaged home sewer lines. Zoom can perform any type of traditional drain repair. We can excavate and replace most damaged pipes in one day and restore to normal working condition.
Call us for a guaranteed solution.
Are you avoiding replacing a damaged pipe because you don’t want to destroy your yard, trees, and pathways? Replacing an underground pipe shouldn’t mean destroying your yard, disturbing landscape or cutting down trees. Our system allows our technicians to replace underground pipe without disturbing any surface materials such as:
- Electrical & gas lines
- Water lines
- Parking Lots
When Zoom replaces your sewer, you may not even detect that the job has been done because there is no trench needed. Zoom’s trenchless pipe repair service gives property owners a cost effective alternative to traditional dig methods of pipe replacement, while still offering the structural strength of new pipe. Our trained installer will recommend the best solution for you.
Pipe-Bursting is a form of trenchless pipe replacement. Our technician’s need only to dig small holes at the entrance and exit points of the old pipe, leaving the rest of the property untouched. A steel cable fixed with a splitting wedge is pulled through the existing pipe, laying a new pipe in the same path as the old pipe is destroyed.
And the new pipe material is so flexible and durable that even earth movement can’t break it. Zoom uses High-Density Polyethylene (HDP) pipe exclusively. HDP is the Superman of pipe. HDP will not break, crack, corrode, freeze or be harmed by chemicals. Unlike traditional pipe, HDP does not have any joints. HDP sections are literally heated and fused together to form a single piece of pipe. Therefore, when installing say 100 foot of pipe, HDP becomes one solid continuous 100 foot pipe. Since there are no fittings, couplings, bands, or gaskets, there are no weak spots in the system. The risk of broken, offset, separated, or root infested joints is eliminated with HDP. Because of these unique properties HDP is also relied upon worldwide to deliver high pressure water, & natural gas utilities.
Pipe Re-lining is a form of trenchless pipe replacement. A flexible felt liner pipe is impregnated with an epoxy resin and then inserted into the damage pipe. Once the liner pipe is in place we inflate a balloon like bladder inside the liner to expand it to the proper size. Then we heat cure the epoxy to harden the pipe. Once the bladder is removed the new pipe is ready for use.
