Trenchless Sewer Repair

What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is when professionals repair or replace your main sewer line beneath your home without trenching. This process allows experts to work on your plumbing without the damage typically associated with traditional sewer line repair. This prevents you from replacing expensive flooring, wallpaper, drywall, or patches of grass.

Trenchless Sewer Repair
Vs. Traditional Methods

Two of the biggest advantages trenchless sewer repair has over traditional methods are its speed and cost-effectiveness. Traditional sewer line repair can take days or even weeks to complete, which doesn’t include the time it takes to repair all the collateral damage in your home. Trenchless sewer repair can be done in one to two days. 
 
Because trenchless sewer repair doesn’t involve extensive digging or trenching, you’ll save thousands of dollars on repair costs, making it more cost-effective than other available solutions.

Benefits Of Trenchless Sewer Repair

  • Cost – Trenchless sewer repair allows homeowners to avoid spending thousands on home repair costs.
  • Strength – Pipes repaired or replaced with trenchless sewer repair methods last longer that other materials and maintain their strength throughout the years.
  • Clean – You won’t need to worry about cleaning your home or property once the repairs have been completed.

Types Of Trenchless Sewer Repair

There are two major forms of trenchless sewer repair: pipe lining and pipe bursting. 

Pipe lining (CIPP)

This trenchless sewer repair method involves creating a new epoxy liner inside your existing sewer line. 

Pipe bursting

This process involves pushing and pulling a brand new HDPE pipe through your old one, breaking it apart, and immediately replacing it. 

What Pipes Can Be Repaired Using Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Not all pipes can be repaired using trenchless methods. Your pipe must maintain some form of structural integrity in order for it to qualify for trenchless sewer repair. Pipe lining uses the existing pipe as a mold for the epoxy to adhere to. Pipe bursting needs a clear existing line to feed in the new pipe. Trenchless sewer repair cannot be performed on pipes that have completely collapsed or were installed incorrectly, such as back-pitched pipes.
