New Lateral Reinstatement Tool Increases Spartan Plumbing's Efficiency

Spartan Plumbing provides superior solutions for homeowners who require HVAC services and plumbing repairs. Plumbers use advanced technologies in order to provide the best outcome. This is why the company developed a new tool in order to allow service professionals to repair piping infrastructure without digging trenches and damaging the homeowner’s yard. This tool is the Tornado ™ Reinstatement Cutter and is now available exclusively through Hurricane Reinstatement Solutions and Spartan Plumbing.


Lateral reinstatement is a procedure that allows plumbers to access damaged subterranean pipes without digging trenches. This is beneficial for homeowners who want the repairs done with a minimum amount of disruption to the property. It is important to understand that pipes will wear down over time. Corrosion, rust and other types of damage may accumulate in the pipes. In addition, gaining access to the lateral connective surfaces of the piping is often difficult. Access points might not be readily available, and the pipes are often installed in areas that are hard to reach.

How Lateral Reinstatement Helps Plumbers

Repairing these parts can be tricky when the pipelines are located underneath the ground. Trenchless technologies allow plumbers to conduct essential repairs without defacing the property. When a plumber is performing a cured-in-place pipe technique, or CIPP, the available tools will determine the amount of time it takes to complete the procedure. This usually involves several steps, and it also requires gaining access to the lateral connectors of the pipe.

Best Lateral Reinstatement Tool

The unique Tornado cutting tool from HRS allows the plumber to access lateral connections and correct problems. It also allows the work to be completed in the shortest amount of time possible. For example, most cutters typically have a reinstatement time of 30 to 45 minutes. Any modest improvement in this area will save time and improve efficiency. The Tornado ™ Reinstatement Cutter performs at a rate of 15 to 30 seconds. This is a substantial improvement in the time required to perform the reinstatement.


Spartan Plumbing

Spartan is proud to offer this new technology, which was thoroughly tested in a major installation in Las Vegas. The Tornado ™ Reinstatement Cutter tool was used at one of the largest major Perma Liner installation jobs in the city. The work was done at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas. After this initial success, the cutter was employed more than 80 additional times for lateral pipe reinstatements, and the tool performed flawlessly.

The Tornado ™ Reinstatement Cutter allows plumbers to gain access to the most difficult areas of the pipe and restore the service of the line. Lateral reinstatement is necessary in order to achieve the best results. The Hurricane Reinstatement Solutions cutter is a new innovative tool that allows plumbers to reinstate the lateral connections in record time while maintaining the highest quality of work.
