Fractured Pipe Repair
If your pipe is fractured or cracked, it could be because of many reasons. Whatever cause, our experts at Nu Flow have experience repairing even the most serious fractures in a fast and minimally-invasive way so that you can get back to your usual routine.
Signs You Have a Fractured Pipe
If you know that something is wrong with your plumbing system, then it may be a crack if you are experiencing some of the following:
- Unusually high water bills that don’t match how much water you use
- Mold or mildew on walls or ceiling
- Musty smell
- Water meter shows you have a leak
- Stained or damaged areas around your ceiling, floor, or walls
Checking Your Water Meter
A good way to tell if you have a fractured pipe that is causing a leak is to check your water meter. This is a fairly simple process that you can do by locating your meter, recording the water level, and not using the water for a few hours. When you check it again, the water level should be the same. If not, there is a good chance you have a leak and should schedule a repair.
Nu Flow’s Solution
Our team works hard to give you lasting repairs when you need it. That is why we are proud to offer our trenchless services to streamline the repair process and fix your fractured pipe fast.
Our advanced camera inspection process allows us to locate the exact spot, size, and extent of your pipe fracture so that we can formulate the best solution. This process involves a small, water-proof camera that is inserted and fed through your pipes by one of our trained technicians. Live footage is fed back to them to help guide the inspection process and point out any areas of concern.
A small fracture in your line can usually be solved by our cured-in-place-pipe(CIPP) lining service. This essentially involves inserting a tube that is saturated with epoxy into your pipeline and placing it at the damaged site. Once in place, the tube is inflated to coat the damaged area. When the epoxy cures, you will be left with a new and durable liner that will last much longer than the pipe it is replacing.
If you have a serious fracture, an area in your pipeline may need to be replaced. This is where our pipe bursting service comes into action. Our trenchless technology allows us to replace your damaged area without digging up your landscape. To do so, a trained Nu Flow technician will first apply the lining material to the inside of your pipe so that it can create a new section. After the new section has been created, the old pipe will be broken apart and sent into the surrounding soil. This is only one example of the many solutions that Nu Flow can provide.
