The A-1 trenchless pipe lining team project of the day: Cleaning and removing roots in 60FT of clay pipe with a 4″-6″ transition. We will be using the Perma-Liner 4″-6” 5mm transition flex with an ambient air cure method. This sewer line has tw0 45-degree bends before the 6” and another 45-degree bend in the 6” at the saddle. We will install the liner 2″-4” into the City main due to a crack at the saddle. After the liner is installed, the robotics team arrives to trim and cut the new pipe liner back. The team sanded out an existing 10FT of liner installed by another contractor, illegally, several years ago.
Everyone on the team has a direct function and task for the specific project. Helpers are put through training and their tasks will change with each and every installation.
This project was run by Marlon R. our trenchless pipe lining lead technician and Chris O, our robotics lead technician.
Helpers are: My son Michael who has been on the team 5 months and Teddy who has been on the lining team for nearly one year.
