Contractor Partially Blocks City Sewer Main
A Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) lining contractor mistakenly installed a liner in a house that went too far and partially blocked off a City of Calgary sewer main. The contractor did not have any equipment to correct the mistake but they were aware of Revive Pipe's specialty in dealing with complex situations. They contacted us and we were able to cut out the liner partially blocking the main without having to create any excavations.
A Calgary lining contractor that uses the inversion method of Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) lining overshot a residential liner, causing their new liner to partially block of the City of Calgary sewer main in the street. As with most inversion lining contractors, this contractor also cut out the floor and made a pit in the basement of the home to install their liner. When the contractor lined too far into the main, they had no recourse other than to dig up the street to repair the problem as they lacked any specialized tools
Typical Invasive Repairs
The traditional repair would have required an excavation in the street. Traffic control would have had to been set up during the work. The pipe would have had to be cut out and the liner removed. The sewer main would have then been reconnected and the pipe backfilled. The excavation in the roadway would then have been repaved.
Revive Pipes Solution
Revive Pipes was contacted as we are known in the industry as being specialists in complex situations with small diameter pipes. Our skilled technicians did a camera inspection on the sewer in question to assess the situation. We then selected the most suitable tool from the large suite of specialized equipment that we have to fix the situation. We used specialized cutting equipment to remove the overshot section of the Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) liner so that it would no longer pose a threat as a sewer main blockage.
The other lining contractor was very appreciative as we not only fixed their mistake, but we saved them several thousand dollars as well. The City of Calgary was happy as the sewer main didn’t have to be excavated and disturbed unnecessarily.
