Trenchless Gas Line Benefits
  • Problems are completely solved because the line is totally replaced, not just repaired
  • The cost of installing HDPE Gas pipe with the pipe bursting method is much less than total replacement by conventional trenching techniques
  • Drastically reduces the public inconvenience and disturbance to the environment caused by traditional repairs
  • Can be performed in tight access areas where open cut methods present a challenge or are not an option
  • Install high-quality pipe that is the same diameter or larger than the original pipeline for increased flow capacity
  • Over 20 years of pipe bursting experience
  • Trained Mr. Drain ®technicians have the expertise to see the job through every step of the way
  • In-house capability to assist the engineer and the owner designing the project by recommending the best rehabilitation methods and materials
  • Mr. Drain ® Pipe Slice ®allows for replacement of pipes without disturbing surface structures.
  • Potential problems with existing pipes are minimized because pipe-bursting methods follow the existing pipe path.
  • For smaller sizes of pipe, pipe bursting is the only trenchless technology that can be used to upsize the existing pipe.
  • Because it is trenchless, excavation is minimized, which lessens effects on existing landscaping and structures. The bursting head or the slicing head on the piercing tool can be removed at the end of the line so that the tools may be removed through the new line. This can eliminate the need for an exit pit in some instances.
  • Mr. Drain ® Pipe Slice ®reduces the amount of site restoration required.
  • In Mr. Drain ® Pipe Slice ® process, a minimal amount of excavation is required to place the machine and insert the new pipe into the original.  These excavations need only be pits that can be shored to prevent collapse or cave-ins, thus increasing worker safety during the rehabilitation process.
Benefits
  • No damage to landscape
  • No damage to concrete area
  • No damage to drive ways
  • Life time warranty of no further leaks
  • Stability to withstand subtle ground movement
  • Saves time as most cases job is done in one day
  • Great savings over traditional methods of repairs

  • The new pipe can be upsized to twice to the size of old pipe
Gas line Safety

Natural gas is without question the most potentially dangerous thing in your home. The results of negligence and carelessness with this explosive and flammable resource can have devastating effects. As such, we believe your efforts to maintain a safe gas environment, while preparing for the worst, deserve extra consideration.

Gas lines must be properly installed, maintained, and monitored frequently. Otherwise, very serious consequences can be the result. Following are some recommendations that Mr. Drain ® Plumbers have mentioned for your safety.

  • When performing construction projects around or near your service meter, never pour concrete or put asphalt around the rigid gas delivery service pipe leading to the meter. The pipe must remain in soft and pliable dirt to accommodate any seismic activity.
  • Know the location of your gas meter and do not allow it to be exposed or damaged by accidental contact. Should the potential exist for being run into by a vehicle, place heavy metal pipes in concrete around the meter. You can inform your utility provider of your concerns. They may offer to assist you.
  • Keep a gas line shutoff wrench accessible in the event of an emergency. It's acceptable to secure the wrench to the meter for quick access. The shut-off valve typically only needs to be turned 1⁄4 turn to close off delivery.
  • Review all gas line connections to appliances within your home to insure they have a separate shutoff valve, and are connected properly to the rigid service line by either yellow epoxy-coated flexible or corrugated stainless steel piping.
  • Take a moment to review the location of your meter. Standing at the meter, look directly overhead. Are you positioned within the drip line of the roof's edge? If so, it's possible melting water and snow from the roof and refreezing on the meter could create an unsafe environment within the house. Consult with your gas provider for the preferred solution.
  • Never begin digging in your yard to install or replace fence posts, trees, bushes, etc. without calling your local utility company for delivery piping location information.

Heating Safety & Efficiency

Have your heating system inspected by a qualified contractor every year before the heating season begins. The contractor should provide the following services:

  • Check the heat exchangers for cracks, rust and corrosion.
  • Clean and check the flue and vent pipes for any obstructions, corrosion or pipe separations.
  • Check your heating system, or have it tested, for proper ventilation.
  • Clean or replace all furnace filters.
  • Check blower operation, clean and lubricate.
  • Check and adjust any pilots and burners.
  • Check that your gas appliances produce a sharp blue flame.
  • Check all electrical connections and controls.

Always keep flammable materials outdoors, in approved containers and away from your furnace, water heater and all other natural gas appliances.

Protecting Your Family From Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless and potentially dangerous gas produced when fuel (heating oil, propane, kerosene, charcoal, gasoline, wood or natural gas) is burned without enough air for complete combustion. If inhaled in large quantities for a prolonged time period, carbon monoxide can cause unconsciousness, brain damage and even death.

Learning to identify the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning is the first step toward protecting you and your family. These symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Coughing
  • Headache
  • Irregular breathing
  • Dizziness
  • Overall paleness
  • Nausea
  • Cherry red lips and ears

If you, or anyone in your household, experience these symptoms, immediately open windows and doors to ventilate your home, then move outside and call 9-1-1 or the fire department.

There are a number of steps you can take to minimize the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, including:

  • Have your chimney, appliances and heating equipment inspected and tested by a qualified professional every year.
  • Install ventless heaters in accordance with manufacturer specifications, never using them as a primary heat source.
  • Install at least one carbon monoxide detector in your home. Do not rely on carbon monoxide detectors as a substitute for maintaining appliances, heating equipment or chimneys. If you do choose to install a carbon monoxide detector, use it as an additional preventative measure.*
  • Clear snow and ice from exhaust vents and intake air vents for gas appliances to prevent carbon monoxide from accumulating in your home.
  • Never use a gas oven or stovetop for heating your home.
  • Never run a gasoline engine (such as a gasoline generator) or an automobile in an enclosed space.
  • Never use a portable charcoal or propane grill indoors.
*You should make sure that any carbon monoxide detector you consider for purchase is listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to the current UL 2034 standard, "Carbon Monoxide Detectors." National Fuel does not endorse or recommend any specific brand of carbon monoxide detector.

Trenchless Gas Line Replacement
Average American homeowners and businesses enjoy the comfort from the appliances that run on Gas. The municipal Gas line is located under the street, and you connect to the Gas under your property, and into your home. Simply turning theGas valve located by the meter delivers enough flow of Gas for cooking and heating purposes. There are many reasons why your Gas line may require repair work. Gas line problems can be the result of tree roots getting in the pipe, mineral build up and residue, high Gas pressure, ground movement, acidic soil conditions, and general deterioration of the Gas pipe over time. Gas main line problems are sometimes worse than water lines. Many older homes will need their Gas mains replaced due to the age of the pipes. These installations can be difficult. For those homeowners and businesses in Trinidad Mr. Drain ® Plumbing have years of experience in repairing and replacing Gas mains. A Gas main that is replaced can result in better Gas flow to the residential or commercial property, which increases your Gas flow. If your property is experiencing slow or low pressure Gas even though your Gas pipes look new from outside, this may be an indication that you need a new Gas main line.

The Gas leaks in the front yard or driveway mostly result because of offsets, cracks, breaks in pipes settled pipes, rust build up in the pipes, old age of pipes. At Mr. Drain ® Plumbing of Trinidad our experts not only can repair the leaking or broken pipe but also have art of replacing the Gas main line wit out braking the driveway or digging trenches
 
The Problem

The Gas lines leak when they corrode rust and break. Following are some of the major reasons why Gas lines break, crack or leak.

  • Broken, Cracked, Offset or collapsed Gas pipe
  • Damaged pipes due to the shifting of soil
  • Damaged pipes due to weather effect on above and bellow earth pipe
  • Frozen ground, settling
  • Rust build up in the Gas lines restricts flow
  • Improper because of rust
  • Leaking joints from connectionsand straight run
  • In case of SS and SDR crack and break due to hardness of material
  • Tree or shrub roots have invaded the Gas line
  • Break, Leak and Crack in case of metal pipes after some passage of time
 
The Solution
The word "TRENCHLESS"means no trench or doing something without trenching and digging. This can be the process of repair or replacement of sewer, Water and Gas lines without opening a trench. Now it does not mean that Trinidad trenchless does not requireany digging or trenching at all, still the access points are digged to insert new pipe. Trinidad trenchless pipeline replacement can save a homeowner's yard, landscaping, or rockery from being disturbed. It also allows for pipeline replacement in areas where it is not accessible to excavation equipment and would otherwise have to be dug up by hand or by heavy equipment. Mr. Drain ®uses Pipe Slice ®Trenchless technology also called " Pipe Slicing " to replace Gas lines from size 1" to 4". As the name implies, stands for subsurface construction works where less trenches or no continuous trenches are required to be dug. It is a rapidly growing sector of the construction and civil engineering industry. It can be defined as "A family of methods, materials, and equipment capable of being used for the installation of new or replacement or rehabilitation of existing underground infrastructure with minimal disruption to surface traffic, business, and other activities. This process involves inserting new line if the old line cannot be sliced. In that case a bullet head is powered using a high power air compressor and it pulls the new SDR (Poly- Ethylene) Gas line.

How Trenchless Gas Line Replacement works?

Mr. Drain ® uses Pipe Slice ® Trenchless no dig technology to replace the Gas lines without opening big trenches. Following is the detail description that what are the conditions in which you need to replace your gas lines and what is the trenchless no dig technology and how it works. Mr. Drain ® Trenchless Service provides Gas line replacement using the Pipe Slice ® Trenchless technology. This is a method of replacing an old Gas pipe with a new poly-pipe of the same or a larger inner diameter.Two holes are excavated in areas of replacement. A very minimum yard will be damaged in this process. The landscape will be covered with protectors so no landscape is damaged. A Pipe Slice ® process is used in which the slice head is used to cut through the pipe from one point to the other. In some cases trenchless toll is used to bore a hole from one hole to the other. The max length between holes varies. A poly-pipe or SDR pipe is then pulled through and the final connection are made. The inspections are done with the city inspectors. The system is flushed so all debris are released to deliver you required flow ofGas. Further inspections are done for leaks and remaining debris is cleaned. A worse scenario is if the Gas main is completely broken which can completely block access to Gas for the affected building. Although local governments, controlsall major Gas mains or access pipes to Gas mains and the utility company in your area is responsible to maintain and repair the gas problems up to the meter.

Repair or Replace Water Lines by Pneumatic Piercing or Bullet process
This process involves repairing or replacing the Gas lines by line piercing, boring or drilling using the bullet kind of tool. An underground piercing tool is also known as a boring tool. It is air driven and typically used when soil conditions make tunneling by hand difficult. It is also utilized when making additional excavations or trench work. Like other trenchless process this method also involves to dig two holes one on each side. The typical piercing tool is between 3" and 4" in diameter, although other sizes are made as well. They are in a shape similar to a missile. This tool is air powered and has a piston inside the body that pushes the head forward and drives the tool itself into the soil. When the piston and the head of the tool retract it is at a lower rate of speed so it remains imbedded in the surrounding soil. Each push forward allows it to penetrate further into the soil until eventually the tunnel is completed.There's a piston that runs inside the barrel of the tools; it's the inertia of the piston striking the nose of the tool that moves it forward in the ground. A portable compressor runs the piercing bullet. The bullet head requires 80 to120 psipressure. The pneumatic tools offer an economical alternative to pipe bursting and other trenchless methods when replacing 30- to 500-foot-long service lines, two inches in diameter and smaller.
In many cases you will only need to replace a section of the Gas line. Damaged sections of Gas pipes can be replaced with high-quality piping. In other cases, you may need to replace the entire Gas line if there is significant damage throughout the pipe. After installation the repaired or replaced Gas line is pressure tested for any leaks. An inspection and approval by the municipality is then performed. After this, your landscaping will be restored to their condition prior to the Gas line repair work

Repair or Replacement of Gas Line by Pipe Slitter process

Like the name represents this Trenchless process of Gas line replacement involves slitting or slicing of the old Gas line.
The trenchless Gas pipe replacement device includes a cable pulling device, a length of cable, a pipe splitting device and a cable end piece. The ends of the existing pipe are exposed, and the cable is fished through the pipe from a front end to a rear end. A cable end piece, that includes a relatively flat pipe end engagement surface, is then engaged to the end of the cable proximate the rear end of the pipe to be replaced. A suitable length of replacement pipe is then attached to the cable end piece. SDR pipe is used in the replacement of Gas Line. At the front end of the cable a Hydraulic cable pulling device is installed.The pulling cabled is connected to the Hydraulic puller. The Hydraulic puller starts pulling the cable and the Slitting Head starts breaking or slicing through the existing pipe, such that the pipe-contacting surface of the cable end piece makes contact with the rear end of the pipe. Further pulling of the cable by the Hydraulic pullercreates sufficient tension and pulling force on the rear end of the pipe that the pipe becomes dislodged from its location within the ground. Further this pulling process results in the existing pipe being pulled through the ground by the force of the cable end piece upon the rear end of the pipe, and the replacement pipe is pulled into the cavity due to its attachment with the cable end piece. Hence in this process the Slitting Head slices the old Gas pipe and new pipe is pulled until the slitting head reaches to its destination. If the dirt is soft the old pipe is also pulled out with the slitter but if the dirt is hard the slitter head slices the old pipe and it stays in the dirt.

The pipe splitter is engaged at the front end of the pipe to split the pipe as it emerges. The pipe splitting device includes a tapered nose portion having a nose tip that is inserted into the front end of the pipe prior to the activation of the Hydraulic puller. The nose portion of the pipe splitter preferable includes a cable groove, which guides the cable towards the cable pulling device, and a sharpened edge, which serves as a splitting force focal point for splitting the pipe as it is pulled. In the preferred embodiment, the tapered nose is formed with a taper angle of from 1° to 15°, and preferably approximately 2°. To place the cable pulling device out of a direct line of the emerging pipe, the pipe splitting device is preferable formed with an elbow having an angle of from 20° to 90°, and preferably approximately 30° to 35°.

 
Repair or Replacement of Gas Line by Pipe Slice ®

Gas is typically supplied to buildings, whether commercial or residential, through Gas pipes that are buried in the ground. These Gas pipes are typically galvanized steel pipes, although copper, plastic and other pipe materials are sometimes utilized, and such Gas pipes typically have a diameter from approximately ½ inch to approximately 4 inches. For various reasons, such as corrosion or puncture, it can become necessary to replace the existing pipe with a new Gas pipe. Typically, this replacement process involves the digging of a trench in the ground along the path of the existing pipe to expose it, remove it and install a replacement pipe. Such trenches can be expensive and disruptive of landscaping and perhaps a structure that has been placed over the existing pipe, and are therefore in the way of the trench, that must be dug for pipe replacement.

In case of the Pipe Slice ® the head attached to the pulling cable have blades on it. Same hydraulic puller and the pulling cable is used but instead of a nose the pipe slice head is consist of the pointed edge and blades on. The blades are sharp enough to slice through the old metal and plastic pipes. Same torque is applied using the Hydraulic Puller. The Pipe Slice ® head slices the old pipe in pieces the head is double then the diameter of old pipe so it forces and penetrates the slices and broken pieces in dirt which gives enough room for the new pipe to slide in. The push and pull motion of the Hydraulic Puller keeps on pulling the Pipe Slice ® head and the new pipe which is attached to the Pipe Slice ® head keeps on sliding until it reaches to the destination hole. The replacement pipe used is either soft copper type K or flexible SDR pipe because these kind of pipes can make any turn very easily and don't break. They are strong and very durable. Then the connections are made on both ends one with the Gas meter and other with the inlet going in the house.
