As a locally owned and operated business, we’re familiar with the needs of your property, whether commercial or business.
There are several signs that help residential and commercial property owners know when something is wrong with their piping system, and when it’s time to call a professional.

At SLB Pipe Solutions, we know it’s tempting to attempt a cheap and easy fix you found on the internet. But DIY methods and hacks aren’t a viable option, as they could damage your system and lead to more costly repairs and replacements down the line. We encourage all of our community members in Louisville and the surrounding areas to give us a call for your plumbing needs, we’re always here to help.
Types of Plumbing Services
As experts in the plumbing industry, we provide a wide variety of services backed by years of practice and experience. We believe we’ll be able to suit all the needs of the Louisville communities and surrounding areas with a job done well. No matter the service we provide, we’ll get your system back online and ready for use in no time. With the latest technology we use, repairs that would have taken days just a few years ago, now take just an afternoon.
Pipe Rehabilitation: pipe rehabilitation involves improving the quality of drain and sewer pipes, so your property can reach its full potential of operability. Our team does these improvements through regular maintenance, inspection, cleaning, repairs, and more. Pipe rehabilitation is our preferred method of maintaining your pipes over traditional pipe replacement, as it saves our customers time and money, without sacrificing the quality of work. These methods are environmentally friendly, long-lasting, structurally sound, and require no extensive digging or damage to your landscaping.
Pipe Inspection: to effectively diagnose problems and issues in your system, SLB Pipe Solutions in Louisville will inspect your sewer or drain thoroughly with a high-tech camera. The process first includes locating an entry point, known as a cleanout hole, that provides our team of professionals access to your troublesome pipe. Next, a flexible rod with an attached high-resolution camera is inserted into the pipeline. As the camera navigates through your drain, we’re provided with a live-feed of your pipe’s interior. Pipe inspection cameras reveal the following:
- The age of your pipe
- The pipe’s composition material
- Cracks, leaks, clogs, and blockages
- In extreme cases, a severely damaged or collapsed pipe.
Overall, pipe camera inspection is an extremely valuable and reliable resource, allowing us to make accurate judgments of your system’s condition and needs. Our team will review the footage, and use the information gathered to take the best course of action with your repairs.
Pipe Lining: Once an inspection is done, our team may determine pipe lining to be the best course of action. With this, we are able to repair the current pipe in your system without replacing it, saving you time and money. First, the pipe is cleaned thoroughly to ensure your lining will have lasting results. The process includes saturating a felt liner with epoxy and pushing it through the interior walls of the pipe, coating them thoroughly. The liner is then left in the pipe while the epoxy hardens, acting as a brand-new pipe within the damaged one. Finally, once the epoxy has hardened the liner is removed and your drain is inspected a final time to ensure the process worked.
Pipe Relining: At SLB Pipe Solutions in Louisville, we offer a single access pipe relining system to rehabilitate existing pipes and systems without extensive digging and excavation. We offer lining services for nearly all drains in pipes in residential and commercial properties and can fix your sewer line in just one day.
Pipe Bursting: Long gone are the days of extensive property digging, excavation, and destroying landscapes, driveways, sidewalks and parking lots to replace one pipe in your network. With today’s trenchless technology, our team in Louisville is able to replace your pipes without forcing you to replace your landscaping. The pipe bursting process includes a bursting head with a new pipe inserted in the place of the damaged one. As the old pipe is pushed out of your system, a new one is pushed in its place. The bursting pipe is then detached from the new pipe and your system is back online and ready for use.
Tree Root Invasion: As a tree grows taller and taller, its roots grow longer and thicker in search of water. Even the smallest of leaks in your system can attract a tree root, causing it to damage your pipeline as it begins to grow through it. If this problem goes unnoticed, the leak will grow to keep growing bigger until the roots create a serious issue with blockages, separated the pipes, and pipes that have collapsed completely. Our team of professionals in Louisville can help you solve any tree root invasion problems and create lasting results to provide you peace of mind.
DRAIN CLEANING SERVICES
Drains are one of the most important parts of your home as they’re used multiple times a day. From washing the dishes, taking a shower, watering the lawn, or doing laundry, your pipes work day and night to keep your home running smoothly. A clog or blockage can prevent your pipes from operating at their full capacity. Clearing clogs out of your drains properly is important to prolong the life of your pipes and keep matters from getting worse if the clog goes ignored.
Signs Your Louisville Drains Need Professional Cleaning
Cleaning drains on your own is not an effective way to handle a blockage in your system. While it may seem like the most efficient method, the do-it-yourself methods often damage your pipes even more and can cause larger issues down the line. DIY drain cleaners contain toxic chemicals that only appear to clear your drains when in reality they only mask the issue.
If you’re experiencing slow draining showers, bathtubs, and sinks, or drains that don’t drain at all, you probably have a leak somewhere in your system. If not taken care of, it can continue to grow until your pipe ruptures or causes flooding in your home or business. To prevent extensive damage and costly repairs, call a professional to make sure your drain is cleaned properly and thoroughly.
Hydro Jetting Services
Of the numerous methods to clean drains, hydro jetting is one of the most reliable, efficient, and environmentally friendly ways to clean piping systems. It is commonly used for larger clogs and is done by flushing your system out with high pressured water. The process begins by inserting a hose with a special, multi-directional nozzle into the drain. When the hose is properly in place, the water will spray the interior of the pipes, quickly cleaning the area of debris and build up quickly and efficiently. It is also energy efficient.
All sewers systems from businesses to homes should be regularly inspected and maintained to keep everything running smoothly. When regular maintenance keeps getting pushed back, there might be leaks, cracks, and other potential issues deep in your system that go unnoticed. If you’re experiencing sewage backup, flooding, foul odors, and unexplained wet spots, it’s time to call for professional help. At SLB Pipe Solutions in Louisville, we’re well equipped and qualified to help, with honesty and integrity unmatched by our competitors.
Our Sewer Services
Sewer Camera Inspection: Similar to the video inspection done for piping, we’re able to use cutting-edge technology to locate cracks and leaks in your system, as well as their exact location. This makes for accurate repairs that don’t result in us tearing up your yard or spending extra time trying to locate the issue. The video taken during the initial inspection is reviewed by our team of professionals and fuels an official diagnosis of your system and solutions to your problems.
Sewer Repair & Replacement: Once any and all issues are identified, we’ll work closely with you to determine how best to proceed. We’ll use the information obtained from the video to determine the age and material of your system, and what needs to be done. Whether your pipes simply need cleaning, or the entire system needs to be replaced, we have the latest technology and equipment to make the process easy on you, from consultation to completion.
- For cleaning, we’ll use the environmentally friendly, efficient method of hydro jetting to wash away any clogs and blockages, without damaging your pipes.
- For repairs and replacements, we’ll use either pipe lining or pipe bursting listed under plumbing services. Using trenchless technology, we can repair your system without expensive and invasive digging.
Sewage Backup: sewage backups don’t always mean visible issues coming back up the drain. In the main line, backups can create more issues than a single clogged pipe, often causes several plumbing problems at once. Typically caused by sewer blockages, stormwater flooding, and broken sewer lines, sewer backup can cause leaks and cracks and extensive flooding. As waste can escape from city drains, sewage can seep through drains in your business or home, and health risks may arise. Health risks inherently come with spilled sewage and can put your family and home at risk. To prevent sewage backup, it’s important to have your system routinely inspected. When issues arise, SLB Pipe Solutions in Louisville is here to help locate the blockage, determine the cause, and provide solutions.
