Drain & Sewer Repair in Allentown
Repair & Replacement for Broken Sewer Lines
In past years, a problem with a sewer line usually meant tearing up the yard, landscaping, driveway, or whatever portion of the property a sewer ran through to fix the issue. Nowadays, trenchless technology enables sewer repairs that are less invasive and destructive to personal property.

Traditional Excavation for Sewer Repairs & Replacements
If excavation is the best option for your property, our drain repair professionals in Allentown have the expertise to locate and repair your pipes as quickly, safely, and efficiently as possible.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Technology
At Zoom Drain of Allentown & Bethlehem, we also provide several unique tools and methods that can repair broken sewer pipes without requiring major excavation on your property.
This method of sewer line repair is also known as pipe bursting. Instead of excavating the entire length of broken sewer line, our team only needs to cut an entry and exit hole for a steel cable. This method involves inserting a steel cable at one end that will break up the old pipe while pulling a new pipe into its place.
ZOOM Pipe Relining
Depending on the condition of your sewer line, we may also be able to repair it through pipe relining. Instead of digging up the broken pipe, we can insert an epoxy liner and inflatable sleeve that will create a new pipe within the old pipe.
Preventing Sewer Problems
- Have septic tank inspected every 4 years or so
- Have sewer line inspected every year
