What Is Trenchless Sewer & Drain Repair?

Many consider trenchless a better method of sewer repair than traditional excavation. When performing traditional excavation, technicians dig a trench around the damaged pipe. Depending on the location of the damaged sewer line, excavation methods often lead to destruction of your yard or property.

Trenchless sewer repair methods happen almost completely underground and out of sight. Damage to the area around the sewer line is minimal. This is why our customers and technicians tend to favor these methods. Plus, trenchless repairs are often completed same day. We perform two types of trenchless sewer pipe repair.

Pipe Bursting Sewer Line Repair

If your pipe is becoming fragile or is beginning to leak, pipe bursting may be the right method for your sewer. Since this is a trenchless method, the process does not require excavation in your yard. Our technicians make two small holes, one where we will insert the new pipe and one where the pipe ends. We pull the new pipe through the old pipe. This bursts it open and installs a new polyethylene pipe in the old one’s place.

The great thing about this new pipe is that it comes with several benefits, including:

  • It is corrosion-proof and has a zero-leak rate
  • It comes with a 100-year lifespan
  • It houses a smooth interior proven to be root-proof and earthquake-resistant
  • It can withstand placement underneath concrete slabs or foundations
  • It’s an NSF/IAPMO-certified system

Pipe Relining Sewer Repair Method

If your sewer line is in decent shape and does not need full replacement, a pipe relining may be your best option. This method allows us to completely reline the inside of your leaking pipe. Like pipe bursting, we pull an epoxy liner and inflatable sleeve through the pipe. We cure the new material inside the old pipe to a beautiful and smooth finish. And, just like that, you have a brand-new pipe within the old one.

Some benefits of this method repair are:

  • It has an increased flow due to the eliminating joints
  • It has a brand-new interior with a guaranteed 50-year, or more, lifespan
  • It molds to the old pipe
  • It can help stop leaks and root intrusion
  • It can withstand placement underneath concrete slabs or foundations
  • It conforms to many non-standard pipe shapes and sizes from 1.5 to 8 inches
  • It’s an NSF/IAPMO-certified system

As you can see, the trenchless sewer repairs come with many benefits compared to digging up a yard. Our customers love the option to repair sewer issues with trenchless repair methods. Reach out to learn more about the methods mentioned above!

  • An unpleasant odor coming from the drains

  • Multiple clogged drains in the house
  • Gurgling sounds coming from the pipes

How Often Should Sewer Lines Be Cleaned?

The frequency of sewer line cleaning can vary depending on several factors, including the age of the sewer system, the number of occupants in the property, and the presence of any known issues. As a general guideline, it is recommended to have sewer lines professionally cleaned every 1 to 2 years to maintain optimal performance and prevent potential blockages or backups.

Reasons Why You Might Need More Frequent Drain Cleaning

  • Age and condition of sewer system: Older sewer systems or those with a history of problems may require more frequent cleaning to prevent blockages and maintain proper functionality.
  • Occupancy and usage: Properties with a higher number of occupants or heavy water usage, such as large households or commercial buildings, may need more frequent sewer line cleaning to prevent buildup and clogs.
  • Signs of sewer line issues: If you notice warning signs like slow drains, backups, foul odors, or strange noises coming from your plumbing system, it is recommended to schedule a sewer line cleaning promptly, regardless of the regular maintenance schedule

If you notice any signs of sewer line problems, such as slow drains, foul odors, or gurgling noises, it is advisable to schedule a cleaning with Zoom Drain of Philadelphia sooner to address the issue promptly. Our professional drain plumbers can assess the condition of your sewer lines and provide personalized recommendations for cleaning frequency based on your specific circumstances.

How Often Should Sewer Lines Be Replaced?

Sewer lines should be replaced on an as-needed basis. Depending on the age of the pipes, material used, and any local codes or regulations, experts recommend that older clay, cast iron, PVC or orangeburg pipes be replaced every 50 to 100 years.

Homeowners should inspect their sewer lines for signs of damage such as corrosion, root intrusion, shifting soil, or broken seals and replace them if necessary.

In addition to regular inspections, sewer lines should also be routinely inspected for clogs and blockages due to grease buildup or other debris. Proper maintenance can help extend the life of a sewer line by reducing wear and tear caused by abnormal levels of pressure or water flow in the system.
