Storm drain pipes transport rainwater away from the building and help the building’s foundation stay dry. Leaks and clogs in the system have the potential to be devastating if left unchecked, resulting in soggy dry walls, puddles of water on the floor, electrical systems becoming fried, and wooden studs becoming soaked and inviting mold to grow. At Lining Coating Solutions, we have the equipment and tools needed to keep these accidents from plaguing your business and slowing it down. We keep you thriving by offering fast and minimally invasive storm drain pipe repair processes for all of our customers across Lakeland.
Lining Coating Solutions begins our visit to restore your storm drain pipes with a storm drain camera inspection. This camera is designed to be lowered through the drainpipe system. The optic cable connected to the camera relays the video feed to the operating technician’s monitor for review. The video displays the complete internal circumference of the pipeline, allowing our experts to pinpoint the presence of blockages or cracks in the pipe. When a blockage is discovered we use hydro jetting to rinse out the obstacle. Hydro jetting uses high-pressure water to remove blockages and scour clean the inside of pipes. A flexible hose with a rotating jetting head attached sprays knife cutting strength water at clogs and washes them completely out of the entire system.
Cracks in the drainpipe do not mean that the drain pipe needs to be replaced. A repair can be made right inside of the original pipe. Lining Coating Solutions uses a trenchless pipe repair process called cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining. With this process, a new, strong pipe is created right inside the original pipe. The process begins with the insertion of an epoxy resin coated liner into the cracked drain pipe. The drain camera can be used to confirm correct liner placement. The liner is then inflated using an air bladder., pressing the resin against the inner wall of the pipe. The resin is allowed to adhere and harden against the original pipe wall for a few hours. Once this curing process has completed, the liner is deflated and withdrawn from the pipe, resulting in a strong pipe remaining inside of the former pipe. The old storm drain pipe offers added protection to the new liner, and the new liner works more efficiently to remove stormwater away from the building. The result is a new pipe that is expected to last for many years long after we install it.
Once the storm drain pipe inspection and any repairs are completed, your building’s storm drains will be protected for years to come. Our experienced team will help you determine when to plan for a future preventative pipeline inspection.
