In almost all cities and towns in North America, the homeowner is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the home’s lateral, which means that the homeowner has to bear the cost of repairing or replacing the pipe.
Any homeowner who has experienced a clogged lateral due to root infiltration knows what a nightmare it can be.
There are a number of methods of root removal including chemical compounds and mechanical devices such as cutting blades or hydro jetters. These methods can be effective in removing tree roots, but the damage caused by the root intrusion should be addressed.
If the damage is extensive, there is no alternative to either replacing or rehabilitating the lateral.
Replacing the pipe is an option but is something that many homeowners dread as it involves digging a trench through the home’s yard, a process that is necessarily destructive of sidewalks and landscaping and which also unavoidably entails noise and dirt.
The Formadrain system of pipe lining is a non-invasive, permanent solution for homeowners, offering many benefits:
Formadrain has developed a true no-dig technology using fiberglass and epoxy resins that are entirely free of Volatile Organic Compounds. There are no strong odors, and no health concerns for the home’s inhabitants or the installation crew.
It is non-disruptive to the environment. There is no need to demolish pavement, trees or landscaping. Our no-dig liners do not create dust or excessive noise. Installation of Formadrain liners is also risk-free for other buried infrastructure.
The Formadrain system of pipe rehabilitation is energy efficient. Because no earthmoving equipment is needed, fuel consumption is significantly reduced.
Installation of a Formadrain liner generally takes only three to four hours, start to finish, to install and cure. The homeowner is able to use all his waste-water plumbing fixtures (toilets, showers, sinks, tubs) again in less than half a day.
Formadrain is a Lasting Solution
Mechanical removal of tree roots is not a “one-shot” solution. The tree roots will grow back because mechanical removal of the roots does not repair the holes and cracks through which the roots are growing.
Installation of a Formadrain liner is a permanent solution. It creates a new, structurally sound pipe that will last for decades. Independent testing performed by CATT at the University of Waterloo confirms the long-term properties of the materials used.
