Chemical Grouting and Pipe Sealing Fort Lauderdale
If your aging sewer system, manhole, or culvert is facing the threat of ground water infiltration, contact us at Shenandoah. Shenandoah has been the go-to provider of chemical grouting and pipe sealing services in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Florida and Southeast Georgia since 1976. Our chemical grouting solutions offer a cost-effective and long-term fix for infiltration issues of underground systems.
Infiltration occurs when defects in below grade structures like manholes, sanitary sewer lines, or storm drains allow groundwater to enter the system. This can lead to the entry of sand and debris, causing increased wear and tear on your equipment, and an upsurge in the need for cleaning. But worry not! With our specialized chemical grouting, we can seal pipe joints and sewer connections, effectively reducing or eliminating the infiltration of manholes and sewer lines.
Our chemical grouting provides a permanent repair solution that can outlast the life of the structure, if installed correctly. Additionally, chemical grouting is a trenchless technology, meaning there’s no need for digging up damaged pipes. This saves you precious time, money, and minimizes disruption to the surrounding area.
So, if your pipeline is in need of chemical grouting and sealing, don’t hesitate to contact Shenandoah today. We’ve got the expertise and experience to safeguard your underground systems and provide you with a reliable, long-lasting solution.
The first trenchless pipeline rehabilitation process was chemical grouting. When properly applied, it is still the best cure for infiltration of groundwater
How Does Chemical Grouting & Pipe Sealing Work?
Chemical grouting works best when the pipe to be repaired is still structurally sound. Over time pipes can sag, joints can become separated and cracks can develop allowing intrusion into the pipe. After first inspecting the pipe with robotic video camera technology if it’s determined the pipe is structurally sound, the pipe will be cleaned and prepared using inflatable plugs placed in the damaged areas of the pipe. Upon inflation, grout is then injected into the separated joints or cracks and the surrounding soil. This special polyurethane grout only takes about 25 minutes to densify, and expand into the cracks, voids, and adjacent soil, effectively sealing the pipe. Even in instances where it’s determined it best to re-line a section of pipe, chemical grouting will still be used prior to re-lining. This prevents any ground water from seeping into the pipe and getting between the pipe and the liner.
Examples of Repair Applications for Chemical Grouting
Ideal for manhole repairing, chemical grouting can be applied to the damaged areas of a manhole to prevent water intrusion. After this process has sealed the manhole walls, a fresh coating can be applied
Joint Sealing – Prior to re-lining of pipe, chemical grouting seals the joints between pipes and the soil around them
Inflow and Infiltration Mitigation
Soil Stabilization and Densification
Chemical Grouting of Laterals. This saves money and avoids re-piping
