Any repairs or replacements being done to your residential, industrial, commercial, or municipal building or property can seem daunting. This is especially true if you’re looking at the repair or replacement of a major line like sewer or water lines, which are essential to the functionality of any kind of building. Here at NuFlow Indy, we treasure our ability to offer you the best information regarding the cost and savings of different kinds of solutions, including traditional repairs, trenchless repairs, pipe bursting versus pipe lining, and other solutions.

Why traditional?

People may opt for traditional sewer, water, or other pipe repairs for a variety of reasons. Traditional repairs have been around longer than trenchless repairs, which came around in 1998. Traditional repairs may seem like the only option to some. It is important to note, though, that traditional repairs come with their own, specialized set of additional or hidden costs.
Traditional repairs rely on the digging of a trench the length, depth, and width of your pipe. This may span a hundred feet long, even more if your damage is extensive. Keep that in mind if you’re seeking traditional repairs.

Overall, the average cost of a traditional sewer line repair or replacement, per foot, is $50-$250+. It depends on the length, diameter, and depth of the existing pipes, local rates, and the ease of access to said pipe. Ease of access is primarily affected by landscaping, hardscaping, and street access or location. Replacing an average sewer line can cost $3,000-$6,000 where it connects to the city sewer system. If this connection line is located in the street, it spikes to $7,000-$25,000+. Reviews from a site called “CostHelper” say that they paid $50-$150 when repairing/replacing sewer line, with an average cost at $106/ft. Ask your plumbing company what state they’ll leave your yard in after they’re done with excavation and repair. Costs can range between $50-$5,000+ in repairs to your home, yard, or hardscaping after an excavation is done. A video inspection is recommended and performed by most companies prior to repairs or replacements; this may cost between $100-$200, with a reported average cost of $220-$500. If the same contractor completes your excavation and repair, this cost may be removed from your final bill after the repair is completed.

At Expresssewer.com, it’s particularly noted that some homeowners, business-owners, or property owners may want to use traditional repairs if the pipe is near the surface of the ground, easily accessible, away from streets or busy work, and doesn’t affect a business or place of work. However, trenchless repairs are much more convenient and easier on the plumbers, you, and your money.

Why trenchless?

Trenchless repairs have been around for decades, and NuFlow has been around since the beginning of the trenchless repair phase of plumbing technologies. All of our solutions, technologies, and equipment are up-to-date, state of the art, and capable of handling any repair or pipeline issue you throw at us.

Trenchless repairs are named as such because they don’t require such heavy excavation and digging at your home, business, or in your property lawn, hardscaping, or city streets. Most methods only require a small entry point, usually already accessible. If not, small entry points are created at the beginning and end of the line to avoid expensive excavations. There are a few different trenchless technologies available for use. Primarily, pipe lining and pipe bursting. Both have different costs per foot.

Pipe lining is recommended for the following:
– Underground pipelines – especially ones that are underneath homes, landscaping, hardscaping, sidewalks, streets, or business buildings (this includes industrial, municipal, or historical buildings)
– Blocked pipes that burst due to severe blockages of roots or household debris
– Poorly installed pipes which cause sewer backups
– Frequently leaking drain lines
– Cracked water pipes, caused by ground movement or building restoration
– Persistent freezing and thawing, which can cause damage to pipes

Pipe lining essentially creates a pipe within a pipe. This is applicable to vent stacks, storm drains, drain lines, water lines, sewer lines, main lines, or other pipes big enough to fit the felt tube that NuFlow uses for depositing epoxy. A special machine inserts this tube, which is also coated with wet epoxy resin. We then deflate the tube and remove it, allowing the epoxy to cure. This completes your repair in under a day or so. This epoxy resin adds 50 years of life expectancy to the pipe repaired.
Costs for pipe lining can average between $80-$250 per foot. Upfront, trenchless repairs can seem similar to the price of traditional repairs. However, traditional repairs require the additional repair costs to any landscaping or hardscaping. This requires more professionals. NuFlow recognizes that not every situation is one for trenchless, and we are happy to evaluate your project to determine which repair methods are most appropriate.

Pipe bursting is recommended for pipes in a severe state of disrepair and fixing the existing line is impossible or impractical. This typically comes about when a pipe cracks in two pieces, collapses, or has suffered severe corrosion and weakness due to material failure. Pipe bursting is the act of inserting a pipe bursting head through the existing line, and pulling a brand new pipe in place behind it. This seamlessly replaces your pipes entirely. Again, this repair is trenchless, so it doesn’t require heavy excavation or digging. We use a pre-existing entry point if one is available, or create a small access point if not.
The cost of pipe bursting ranges from $60-$200 per foot, on average. The main benefit of pipe bursting versus pipe lining is that pipe bursting gives you a whole new pipe. This is a great benefit, when you’re considering the likelihood of replacement for your pipes. Even with pipes falling apart, such as clay or cast-iron (which are frequently used in Indiana) pipe bursting is a great solution. If pipe bursting doesn’t work for you, you can always turn back to pipe lining. We won’t suggest pipe bursting unless it’s absolutely necessary.

What trenchless technologies are available, and where are they applicable?

Here at NuFlow, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer a variety of services to Indianapolis, Indiana businesses and residents.
– Sewer camera inspections
– Drain cleaning & hydro-jetting services
– Sewer repairs
– Trenchless pipe lining & sewer repair
– Vent stack lining
– Storm drain repair

All of these services utilize the best and latest equipment, ensuring that the job gets done to perfection.

Sewer camera inspections are the first step to any pipe service. They allow us to get a close look at the going-ons of your pipes, including any blockages, leaks, breaks, tree root invasions, or other complications with a repair, replacement, or maintenance tool like drain cleaning or hydro-jetting.

Drain cleaning & hydro-jetting are both great preventative and maintenance tools. Drain cleaning is a process in which we clear out blockages or clogs inside your pipes. We may use hydro-jetting to do this, or we may use a drain snake. A drain snake is recommended for smaller clogs with less density. We use hydro-jetting for heavier jobs. Hydro-jetting is an eco-friendly solution to clogs. We use a highly-pressurized nozzle on the end of a water hose to shoot water into your pipes, clearing them thoroughly of any blockages. Not only are these processes quick, they’re also affordable and great for maintenance since they are gentle on your pipes. If performed three or four times a year, drain cleaning or hydro-jetting can save you thousands of dollars in an emergency plumbing situation since they keep your pipes and drains clean, clear, and running smoothly.

Sewer repairs are a daunting task, we understand that. That’s why we offer several types of solutions. Firstly, we offer trenchless sewer repair. These repair methods only take a few hours to complete; they’re minimally invasive, which means you’re saved the hassle of repairing walls, landscaping, flooring, or hardscaping for your home or business; these services are efficient, which mean they save you time and money; and they meet industry standards and are permanent. Trenchless sewer repair via trenchless pipe lining can add an additional 50 years of life expectancy to your pipes, which is a huge benefit. We can also perform pipe bursting, which replaces a section of pipe entirely.
Storm drain repairs may seem like they’re not a concern now, but just wait for rainy season. Getting a quick camera inspection done can reassure you and save you money in the long run. With NuFlow, we offer storm drain repairs with an epoxy resin that can secure and stabilize your storm drains for up to fifty years. The same goes for vent stack lining, which uses a similar epoxy solution as our trenchless pipe lining repair method. This unique epoxy solution stands up to the test of time, and can be expected to last for decades to come. The resin used for vent stacks can work for PVC, fiberglass, clay, and iron pipeline material, meaning that no matter what you have, we can cover it.
The overall cost of trenchless may seem daunting in the short-term, but overall, trenchless repairs or replacements can last you longer. Because NuFlow offers an epoxy solution that adds 50 years of life expectancy, if you have strong pipe material, you may get a lifetime or more from your pipes, vent stacks, or storm drains. We offer trenchless technologies not just to save you money, but to save you time, as well. Time is a precious commodity – and the weeks spent waiting for excavation, repairs, and the repairs repairing the excavation to be completed can feel like they drag on forever. Displacement of a home, business, or other place of work can be very challenging for employees, bosses, and customers alike. That is why NuFlow offers trenchless technologies, solutions, and equipment.

Emails get quick responses and all phone calls are answered by a knowledgeable team member who can answer any and all questions.

How can we help you?

With so many services available, it can be hard to determine what the best answer is for your property. That’s why we offer such a wide variety of options – so that any repairs, replacements, or maintenance needs you have can be met by our company. We never want you to have to go anywhere else, so we have made ourselves into the one-stop shop for trustworthy service in Indianapolis.

Drain cleaning

Because we have the latest technology, NuFlow Indy is capable of handling common issues with Indianapolis, IN homes or businesses like tree roots, mineral deposits, food waste, or hardened grease accumulation. These problems can occur no matter what kind of services you offer or building you have – whether you’re a hospital, a warehouse, or another type of enterprise.
We always perform a video camera inspection before beginning our drain cleaning process, so we know exactly what equipment we need to use to resolve your clog or other issue. This video camera inspection can also alert us to any other damage inside your pipes, like cracks, leaks, corrosion, or erosion, which can cause pretty big issues. We provide drain snaking, hydro-jetting, and maintenance drain cleaning services, all for your convenience. Both drain snaking and hydro-jetting are effective for relieving clogs. Drain snaking is recommended for smaller clogs with less density; hydro-jetting is better for heavy-duty clogs or relieving mineral buildup, grease buildup, or buildup of soap scum and hair from bathroom lines. Hydro-jetting is also very eco-friendly, since it’s just the use of highly pressurized water inside your pipes. Both of these methods are trenchless, which causes no external or internal damage to your property.

Sewer camera inspection

Thanks to improvements in technology, plumbing technicians like the ones here at NuFlow Indy can use small, waterproof, HD cameras to inspect the inside of your pipes without the need for excavation. This service is for all types of buildings – residential, industrial, commercial, municipal, or historical. NuFlow values not damaging your property, and we pride ourselves on being a primarily trenchless company. That means we use a pre-existing entry point to your pipes like a drain cleanout to begin the inspection. We insert the camera and begin recording all from above ground. As the camera goes deeper inside your pipes, it sends a live feed of video or pictures to our tech’s tablet, phone, or computer. This means we get crystal-clear images of what your pipes actually look like without having to dig. This also means no damage is done to your property while identifying your plumbing issues. This process saves you time, money, and energy – it only takes about an hour to complete and is highly affordable.

If there are major damages to your pipes – things like clogs, chips, cracks, holes, or rotten spots – a repair or replacement plan can be made that day, along with a quote from the technician managing your pipe inspection. If the damages are less severe, regular sewer inspections can save you tens of thousands of dollars because it prevents the need for an emergency plumbing phone call. Those moments when your toilet overflows, a pipe bursts, or something else dramatic happens can be severely lessened by a routine sewer camera inspection.

Sewer repair

Major sewer repairs are something no business, home, or property-owner looks forward to. If your property was owned and managed over forty years ago, it’s probably time to consider getting a thorough inspection. The materials used in decades past do not always stand the test of time, and will most likely go out on you soon. It’s better to have a heads up than to get caught unaware, so considering your structure and pipeline system’s age is extremely helpful.

Traditional sewer repairs

These repairs can cost thousands of dollars. That’s why NuFlow Indy offers trenchless sewer repairs. Traditional sewer repairs require the excavation of a trench the length, width, and depth of your pipe. Digging the trench itself can take weeks. This trench is necessary to expose the pipe for repair, replacement, or inspection. Then it can take multiple days to perform the necessary repairs, replacements, or inspections. Once the repairs are complete, you have to pay out of pocket to repair any landscape or hardscape damaged by the excavation. This may also require city licenses and the rerouting of traffic, depending on where you’re located and what kind of building or property you have.

Trenchless sewer repairs

These repairs are much more economical, much faster, and much easier for both you and the plumbing technicians working on your pipe. Technologies, equipment, and methods are constantly evolving, with NuFlow right behind them. We have perfected our process, using only the top technologies to serve our clients. We developed an epoxy resin that can cure relatively quickly and leaves your pipes in better-than-new condition. Here are some major benefits of going trenchless:
– Repairs usually only take a couple of hours
– Less-intrusive technologies mean you save thousands of dollars by not repairing landscaping, flooring, and walls in homes & businesses
– Efficient services save homeowners & business owners time, money, and energy
– Trenchless repairs meet industry standards, extend life expectancies, and are permanent

Instead of that massive trench, we need only a small access point at the end of your sewer pipeline. Prior to the installation of the
lining, we will inspect and then clean your pipes, to ensure a perfect fit. This process removes all prior clogs, tree blockages, damage from corrosion, erosion, or other complications. We also measure your pipes so we can cut our epoxy properly. A high-tech machine inserts a flexible tube filled with air into your pipe, filled with that specially-designed, wet epoxy resin, and fills the entire space of your pipe. It conforms to the particular shape, size, and dimensions of your pipe, ensuring a perfect fit. We then inflate the air tube and allow the wet epoxy to coat the interior surface of your pipe. We deflate the air tube, remove it, and the epoxy takes a few hours to cure on its own or under 60 minutes with the application of heat. This epoxy creates a hard, impenetrable lining – or “pipe within a pipe”- that can help prevent future problems. Our epoxy resin has a 50 year life use expectancy. This almost doubles the life expectancy of cast-iron, PVC, or clay pipes. This pipe lining method can be used for all types of pipes, not just sewer lines. NuFlow especially recommends underground (trenchless) repair methods for pipes like these:
– Underground pipelines, particularly ones beneath homes, landscaping, hardscaping, or business buildings
– Blocked, burst pipes with severe damage due to an invasion of tree roots or household debris
– Poorly installed pipes which cause sewer backups or frequently leaking drain lines
– Cracked water lines caused by ground movement, like settling, or home restoration, particularly of the foundation
– Persistent thawing and freezing that create a damaged pipe
– The desire to add a larger water pipe to a home, business, hospital, or historic building

NuFlow Technologies was at the forefront of the beginning of the boom of trenchless technologies. We’ve been working hard for decades to ensure our technologies, equipment, and solutions up remain the best in the business. Not only did we set the standards for the trenchless industry – we far exceed them.

Storm drain repair

With NuFlow, you don’t have to be worried before, during, or after a big storm. We offer repairs and maintenance for your storm drains that can guarantee their safety and hardiness during that big weather event. For clogged storm drains, we hydro-jet them. With hydro-jetting, we insert a small, flexible rod with a highly pressurized nozzle into your storm drain and blast water through it. This clears any clogs and removes debris from the inside of your pipes. With a more extensively damaged storm drain, we use a similar epoxy resin as we do with sewer line repair, which restores the drain to better-than-new condition. This means you won’t have as much to worry about. It creates a storm drain inside a storm drain, ensuring your storm drain will stand the test of time. With a post-work camera inspection, we ensure all weak points are secured and clean.

Vent stack lining

Traditional vent stack lining processes can require the removal of walls, flooring, and the stack itself. That can cost a fair bit to replace, and we don’t want to cost you anymore time, energy, or money than is absolutely necessary. Here at NuFlow Indy, we’re all about completing work for our customers as efficiently, effectively, and affordably as possible. That’s why we offer a trenchless solution for vent stack lining.

First, as always, we begin with a video inspection. This lets us survey the damage and pinpoint where we need to make repairs. We clear out all debris and give your stacks and vents a thorough clean. After that’s done, we insert a liner and allow our epoxy to seal to your lines, adding on 50 plus years of life expectancy. This can be used on any type of vent system, including fiberglass, PVC, clay, and iron – so no matter what you’ve got, we can fix it. Our technicians are equipped and capable of handling this process with ease and confidence, so just call or email us today to learn more about how we can repair or maintain your vent stacks without damaging your property.

Toilets and sinks will backup and cause flooding in homes and office buildings as a result of being clogged or having collapsed pipes. At Nu Flow Indy, the process of repairing these pipes has become more efficient and reliable. There are some tips to keep the damage to a minimum until we can arrive on your property and fix it as needed.

1. Turn Off the Water Services
To ensure that no additional water is released and floods your home, we recommend shutting off your water services. This can be done by locating the shut-off valve inside the meter box and turning it clockwise with a wrench. This prevents the water from being turned on and feeding the flood with more excess water.

2. Turn Off the Electricity to the Flooded Rooms
Whether your home is flooding from the bathroom or basement, it’s important to turn off the electricity leading to these rooms. The location of the breaker box varies from house to house, but once you find the box for your home, turn the switches to the flooding rooms off to prevent the risks of fires starting.

3. Lay Down Towels to Soak Up Excess Water on the Floors
If the water is pooling on the floors of your home or basement, it’s greatly encouraged to set down towels in order to try and mitigate the potential water damage. If the water is allowed to sit for too long, it can warp wood floors and seep into the foundation, creating problems that may need to be addressed at a later date.

Call us when your home is overflowing, and don’t waste time before we get there. With these steps, you can wait for the arrival of Nu Flow Indy experts in safety and reassurance knowing that we will fix the problem while keeping the damage to an absolute minimum.

You’ve worked hard to make sure that your business is secure and provides a significant need for the community. But what if the city you’re located in has unknowingly hurt your business by installing a defunct sewer system on your street? That is what happened in Mesa back in 2010 when a horrible odor created a real stink for Andrzej Derkacz’s violin shop.

A Lingering Odor Creates a Disturbing Ambience in a Mesa Music Shop

When the residents of Baseline Road and Loop 101 started to send complaints to City Councilman Dennis Kavanaugh, he took action and went to the city employees who simply told him that they were working on the situation.

A representative for Mesa’s wastewater systems, Jake West, stated that the strong odor had been a problem since Loop 101 was constructed in the 1990s. West said that during his 15 to 16 years in the city “We always had issues with odor along the Baseline corridor.”

The City of Mesa ships most of its sewage west to the 91 Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant, which is partially owned by the city. The pipes are situated under Baseline Road and end at the intersection of 101.

When the pipes were installed, the department of transportation knew that they would need to have an odor-control facility. Since then a bio scrubber and carbon tower have been installed to clean the air. But the city has still experienced issues with leaky pipes, which has caused the smell to come back at times.

In 2007, Mesa spent $3.2 million dollars for an overhaul of their sewer lines. Here at Nu Flow in Phoenix, we can’t help but wonder if the good people of Mesa could have saved a ton of money if they had only used our innovative pipe lining technology instead.

How Damaged Sewer Pipes Affect Your Lives

In Residential Buildings

Your damaged sewer pipes can be very messy. The lawn could develop soggy patches which give out an unbearable odor. The basement could smell of damp and its walls discolored with patches of sewer fluid. Then there is the concern of damage to the landscape during repair. No one wants to rebuild their carefully planned patio.

If you’re living in a high rise apartment, you’re probably more conscious of the whole leaking sewer pipe hassle.  Your bathroom floor is someone else’s ceiling. You could find yourself in the middle of a lawsuit if you don’t deal with the situation immediately.

High Rise Office Buildings

High rise buildings housing offices have similar issues to high rise residential apartments but the problem is more acute. With so many people working together in these offices, the use of sewer system is higher. And the care isn’t that great.

Hospitals and Hotels

Since there is always the matter of life and health in a hospital, sewer pipe problems can be devastating to the daily operations. Plumbers need to take extra care when repairing sewer pipes in hospitals.

There should be minimal disturbance to on-going operations. No one wants to see the hospital in the middle of a messy sewage repair. Hospitals would very well loose clients that way. Your perception of the hospital changes drastically when you see a leaking pipe; it’s highly intolerable.

Easy Sewer Pipe Repair Techniques

The above scenarios aren’t very pleasing. However, you can avoid them. Repair your sewer pipes the easy way. Nu Flow’s team of well trained and experienced technicians will make your lives so much easier. You can make use of any of the repair techniques for your sewer pipe problems:

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining.

CIPP lining adds a pipe sleeve into the damaged pipe. Your damaged pipe will be filled with a felt pipe containing Epoxy Resin. Using steam, air, or hot water pressure, a bladder pipe presses the new sleeve onto the damaged pipe wall.

The best part is that your daily operations aren’t affected in the least. The whole process is completed within 4 -24 hours. You don’t even have to compromise on your landscape. The entire repair process is non-destructive and also cost effective.

Pipe Bursting

You can just replace your severely damaged sewer pipe by getting a new one in its place. Here, a pressurized machine blasts the old pipe and immediately replaces it with a new one.

Regardless of the nature of the problem you might be facing, Nu Flow, Indy has a solution to all your sewer pipe problems. Feel free to visit your website Nu Flow.com to learn more about your sewer pipe problems and repair.  Benefit from the most cost effective and easy repair techniques by Nu Flow Technology.

Not long ago any kind of sewer backup meant that you would most likely have to dig up and replace your entire sewer line. This was a messy and expensive way to deal with a whole range of possible problems, some of them which can actually be quite simple and cheap to deal with. However, new plumbing technologies have led to the widespread use of cameras for sewer inspections to diagnose the sewer problems, which has led to much more effective and inexpensive handling of sewer problems.

How Camera Inspections Work

Professional sewer repair companies use hi-tech cameras to inspect the entire length of your sewer system to diagnose existing and potential sewer problems. The camera itself is a small device at the end of a few inches of electronic cable. The cable is attached to a length of flexible wire that will bend around corners or obstructions, but retain enough tension that the plumber can push it down the pipe from the insertion point.

The cable connects to a monitor that offers a high definition real-time image of whatever the camera sees. The camera has a built-in light that illuminates the surrounding area for a few feet, so that the plumber can identify precisely what any obstruction or clogs are made from.

The plumber will run the camera down the entire length of the sewer line, if possible, to identify all possible problem areas, and then provide a full diagnosis of your existing and potential sewer line problems. He will then offer a set of possible solutions for addressing your sewer problems that will run from simply pushing through a clog to replacing your entire sewer line with a new pipe.

The Most Common Sewer Line Diagnoses

While there are many kinds of problems that may occur in your sewer line, most problems fall into a few major categories.

• Tree roots: The roots of trees around your property are drawn to the water inside your sewer pipe. They will grow around and inside a sewer pipe, which can cause substantial blockage and damage.

• Broken, cracked, collapsed or misaligned pipes: Pipe damage is most often the result of temperature change in the surrounding soil, especially freezing, and shifting soil, which occurs in soft and sandy soils.

• Blockage: While the most common cause for blockage is grease, there are numerous reasons why a sewer line can become blocked.

• Pipe deterioration or corrosion: Pipes made from older material that are not modern PVC piping are at risk of deterioration and corrosion. As the pipe loses its integrity, it can become blocked with broken pipe pieces and surrounding dirt. Eventually the pipe will collapse entirely, which will definitely result in major blockage of the sewer line.

• Bellied pipe: Occasionally a portion of the pipe will sink lower into the ground, which creates an area where sewage will pool instead of flowing out.

• Leaking joints: The seals between the joints of old pipes can break or loosen, which will allow water to seep out between the broken seals.
