Root intrusion costs owners of sewer systems millions of dollars every year. In fact, the intrusion of roots into sewers is probably one of the most destructive elements that faces those maintaining a wastewater collection system. Roots can enter your system through microscopic openings in joints, cracks and service connections. Once inside, they grow in size and strength until they create serious problems.

There are many root control chemicals on the market today, but only a few contain metam-sodium and dichlobenil. According to the EPA, no other method of root control approaches the effectiveness of these two chemicals. Roo-Pru is superior to other metamsodiumdichlobenil products for several reasons. Roo-Pru's special packaging ensures that it arrives at the job site with all its potential power, even if it has been stored for up to five years. Roo-Pru also delivers more active ingredients per gallon than the competitive products, so it is more economical to use. Independent laboratory tests have proven the active ingredients in Roo-Pru remain in suspension significantly longer than the next most popular product, in both concentrated and diluted form. The tests also proved that the foam generated with Roo-Pru is more stable than the competition, due to its finer bubble structure.

H2S and other dangerous sewer gasses corrode the interior of manholes, pump stations and other sewage infrastructure. Fissures caused by this corrosion can allow infiltration from groundwater to enter the wastewater system and be treated along with the wastewater, which means municipalities lose thousands of gallons of water and thousands of dollars in overloaded treatment systems.

Guildner Pipeline Maintenance, Inc. is the sole licensed installer of the state-of-the-art Poly-Triplex liner system in Colorado and surrounding areas. Poly-Triplex liners are composed of two layers of structural fiberglass saturated with epoxy resin around an impenetrable inner membrane. Installation is begun with a cleaning of the structure to be rehabilitated before placing the liner within the structure. The liner is applied and cured using a patented pressurized bladder that is steam-heated, binding the liner to the structure surface. The installation and curing process is completed in a matter of hours, with minimal disruption of sewage service.

Guildner Pipeline Maintenance, Inc. employs safety-certified experts in the installation of the liner system. Our crews can install the product quickly and safely, requiring no subcontractors. After installation, the liner system materials are guaranteed to last 10 years and have a 100-year life expectancy. Because of its outstanding resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand environmental hazards and root-intrusion from trees, maintenance of the Poly-Triplex system is minimal.

An audit of early installations of the Poly-Triplex liner system has produced zero claims on the 10-year warranty. Liners installed 13 years ago still look new. Engineers who were able to take advantage of Poly-Triplex immediately when it was created were able to rehabilitate wastewater systems and never have to revisit them.

We introduced our cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation product in March of 2006. We are able to repair individual sections of pipe up to 12 feet in length.

Before Repair

This is an eight inch concrete sanitary sewer line that is eighteen feet deep. There was a crack just the other side of the joint that extends for about one foot. The District wanted to fix the pipe, but due to the depth and the fact that it was under a paved two lane road, conventional point repair was not a viable option. To dig up and repair this segment would have closed the road for at least a day and cost approximately $5,000 to $6,000.

After Repair

Using the GPM C.I.P. Point Repair System, the District was able to save money and time, not to mention the road stayed open during installation. The cost for this type of repair is approximately $1,500 to $2,000 and takes less than four hours from start to finish. The district was so pleased with this repair that they are going to start doing all their point repairs with the GPM C.I.P. Point Repair System.

We have rehabilitated approximately 300,000 linear feet of various type and size pipe using HDPE.

Sliplining is a popular and trusted trenchless method that allows the rehabilitation of deteriorating pipe by inserting a smaller pipe into an existing pipe. As a trenchless method, sliplining can be applied to either pressure or gravity pipelines. Water, sanitary and storm sewers can be renewed with minimum excavation. When done properly, sliplining ensures that the rehabilitated pipe and lateral connections are leak-tight, corrosion resistant and capable of even greater flow rates.

In the sliplining process, a winch cable is inserted through the existing line and then attached to the front of the new liner pipe. The new pipe is then pulled into the existing pipe and reconnected to the system.

With proper planning, sliplining is a cost effective method for the rehabilitation of aging sanitary and storm sewer collection systems, extending the service life of these systems for many decades to come.
