Why Contractors Choose Formadrain

Homeowners, municipalities, and industries have been turning to no-dig solutions to rehabilitate damaged underground laterals and sewers, and with good reason. 

Trenchless repair of pipes:

  1. Is Environmentally-Friendly. With no-dig technology, there is no need to tear up pavement, lawns, trees and landscaping. Because no heavy earthmoving equipment is used, fuel consumption is minimal.
  2. Does Not Create Excessive Noise and Dust. Trenching requires the use of noisy and cumbersome earthmoving equipment such as jackhammers, excavators and backhoes. These machines can create noise levels of 80 dB or more. Trenchless technology creates much lower noise levels and for much shorter periods of time.
  3. Is Non-Disruptive. No-dig rehabilitation eliminates the need for detour routes for vehicles and pedestrians so there is minimal to no disruptions of vehicular and foot traffic.
  4. Takes a Fraction of Time. CIPP methods of pipe rehabilitation eliminate time spent on digging, earthmoving, and restoration of the affected area.
  5. Poses No Safety Hazards. Because trenches are not dug, there is no danger of cave-in or collapse of trench walls and no danger of flooding of the excavated area.

All no-dig systems are trenchless, but not all trenchless systems are no-dig. With the Formadrain system, lateral repairs, lateral-main-connection repairs, spot repairs, and process pipe repairs can all be performed with NO digging.
