In the springtime of this year, John Broom of Chillicothe, IL. started seeing suspicious leaks in his basement, a closed circuit camera inspection revealed a decent sized hole in his sewer line. The pipe was buried 15 feet underground in his front yard, regular digging to get to it would require special equipment, storage of large amounts of dirt on the street and sidewalk and a $20,000 to $40,000 price tag. “The digging would have destroyed my yard," Broom said. Perma-Liner received a call from Mr. Broom and they recommended a reputable plumbing company in the local area and they came to Mr. Broom’s rescue. The process used is a pvc coated felt tube impregnated with epoxy resin that's inserted into the damaged pipe and blown up like a balloon. After a few hours, the epoxy hardens and creates a "pipe within a pipe.” Broom says the repair cost him only $3,400, and he avoided major disruptions to his landscape or the environment around him.
