What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is a modern and efficient method for repairing or replacing damaged sewer lines without requiring extensive digging and excavation. Unlike previous methods that involve disrupting your yard with time-consuming excavation, trenchless sewer replacement minimizes property damage and preserves the integrity of your landscape.

How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?

Trenchless sewer repair utilizes updated techniques and equipment to rehabilitate or replace damaged sewer lines with minimal disruption. Trenchless sewer repair offers several advantages over traditional methods. 

Trenchless Sewer Line Repair vs. Traditional Sewer Line Repair

Unlike conventional repair methods, trenchless sewer line repair is minimally invasive. With trenchless methods, there is no need for large trenches and extensive digging because all the work is done inside the existing pipes.

The Process of Trenchless Sewer Repair

There are several steps we take for an effective sewer replacement or repair. Our process typically includes:

1. Inspection and Diagnosis:

A video inspection through the sewer line is conducted to identify the cause and extent of the damage. This helps determine the most appropriate repair method: pipe lining or pipe bursting. More about those below.

2. Pipe Cleaning and Preparation:

Before we being the repair, the damaged sewer line is cleaned and cleared of any obstructions or debris. 

3. Pipe Lining or Pipe Bursting:

Depending on the condition of the pipe and severity of the damage, either pipe lining or pipe bursting method is employed. Pipe lining involves inserting a new lining into the damaged pipe, creating a seamless and durable inner layer. Pipe bursting involves breaking the old pipe while simultaneously installing a new pipe. Our specialized technicians will make sure to use the method we think is best for your situation.

4. Final Inspection and Testing:

Once we complete the  repair or replacement, we’ll perform final video inspections and tests to ensure the newly repaired sewer line functions properly and meets our highest standards.
