After nearly 15 years of working for corporate-owned drain franchise services, Dan Rombaugh decided he wanted to take a more personalized approach to helping people with their drain problems. So he established DR Drain in 2013. His company assists both residential drain service and commercial drain service customers. He has cleared clogged drains in: Albion, Battle Creek, Marshall, Hastings, Bronson, Coldwater, Galesburg, Kalamazoo, Portage, Parchment, Vicksburg, Jackson, Parma, Olivet, Potterville, Charlotte, Eaton Rapids and other outlying areas.
“There is no job too big or too small,” Rombaugh says. “I find it very, very easy to talk to people and I like helping them.” Rombaugh works to address customers’ needs efficiently and effectively, making sure that they get the best service possible at a reasonable price.
DR Drain Cleaning LLC. are now certified Perma-Liner Industries LLC. installers. Our ZERO DIG repair method is the most cost-effective approach to repairing broken or damaged sewer lines. This system can restore the underground pipe to “better than new condition” in just a matter of hours. These repairs can be made without disturbing landscaping, roads, asphalt, etc. Everything happens underground with no excavation.
A resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth or a number of other materials suitable for resin impregnation, is inverted or pulled into a damaged pipe. It is usually done from the upstream access point (manhole or excavation). It is possible to invert the liner upstream (e.g. from the downstream access point) but this carries greater risk. It is possible to install a liner from the downstream access point, upstream to a blind end however this carries the highest risk of all the CIPP installation methods. Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless process, making for a potentially more cost-effective and less disruptive method than traditional “dig and replace” pipe repair methods.
These images of a pipe cutaway tell the story of what cured-in-place pipelining means. They illustrate a failing pipeline with root intrusion, corrosion or even breakage. The lower pipe illustration shows the same pipeline with a rehabilitated relined and sealed new pipe liner. This is the core of our business and could mean the difference between costly excavation and rebuilding of infrastructure versus a simple day of No-Excavation pipe repair solutions.
Our patented cured-in-place pipe repair systems provide you with a solution to failing underground sewer and pipelines. Our extensive line of trenchless pipe repair systems can rehabilitate pipes ranging from 3″ – 8″ in diameter.
