Hydro-Klean Starting Sewer Lining Process in Afton
There will soon be activity on West Filmore and South Browning as Hydro-Klean starts televising and cleaning sewer pipe to prepare for the lining. This process is cost effective and prevents the need for digging up pipe and replacing it. This is the same process that was done on East Filmore.
They televise, clean and run an epoxy pipe lining system that will line the sewer pipe with a seamless new pipe inside the old pipe. This new pipe inside a pipe offers a lot of benefits over the old pipe. Roots cannot penetrate the new lining on the sewer pipe and with no seams the flow rate will improve over the old cast iron, pvc, or clay sewer pipe. There are other benefits such as calcification can not take place on a lined sewer pipe.
