Seal Manhole Joints Against Inflow & Infiltration
The technicians at Shenandoah are experts in manhole repair and restoration. Manholes provide access to sanitary sewer systems as well as stormwater drain systems. Infiltration by water, and root systems will cause the manhole walls to deteriorate which can lead to sinking or collapse. Shenandoah offers repair for commercial, industrial and government entities including, homeowners associations (HOA’s), commercial property owners, strip malls, shopping centers, offices, industrial institutions, municipalites and more.
We can identify small problems before they become costly repairs. And when repairs are necessary, they can be done with minimal disruption and without excavation. This saves them time and money. With offices in Pompano Beach, Tampa, Fort Myers, Lakeland and Fort Pierce, we can service the entire state of Florida. So, when you need proven expertise for manhole repair and restoration call or contact Shenandoah today.
Timely Inspections Will Prevent Costly Manhole Repairs
One of the most common causes of manhole deterioration, is when sewer gasses combine with bacteria. This results to produce sulfuric acid which is extremely corrosive to steel, concrete, and mortar. The best time to inspect manholes is after a major rain event. This will provide evidence of leakage around areas where PVC pipe enters the side of the manhole. This can lead to root intrusion which will further degrade the walls of the manhole. When manholes are constructed of brick, intrusion can cause the brick walls to degrade and even collapse.
The Shenandoah Solution – Polyurethane Injection (Chemical Grouting)
Polyurethane injection or chemical grouting is ideal for manhole rehabilitation. This trenchless technology requires no excavation. Our technicians inject the polymers through the manhole wall or from the surface. When it’s injected, the polyurethane expands up to 25 times, filling any voids and hardening the soil around the manhole chimney. When the job calls for sealing leaking or damaged pipes, manholes, injection wells, retention boxes, or other structures we utilize state-of-the-art polymer grouts which are injected into the soil and pipe, creating a water-tight seal. Regardless of the problem, Shenandoah has the solution. Call or contact us today and let us show you how our IRM program for scheduled inspections and maintenance can save you money and aggravation.
