Trenchless Repair Methods

Many Prefer Trenchless Repair to Excavation

Trenchless is considered by many to be a better method of repairing your sewer than the traditional method. When the traditional method is conducted, tools are used to dig a trench around the damaged pipe. In many cases, depending on where the damaged sewer line is located, excavation methods can lead to destruction of your yard or property.

Trenchless Is Minimally Invasive

On the other hand, trenchless sewer repair methods can be done completely underground and out of sight. These methods are favored by our customers and technicians because damage to the area around the sewer line is minimal. Plus, the trenchless repairs can usually be done same day. Essentially, there are two types of repairs we can conduct with the trenchless sewer pipe method.

Pipe Bursting

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 is completed without having to excavate in your yard.

Two small holes are made where the new pipe will be inserted and where the pipe ends.

The new pipe is inserted inside the old pipe, bursting it open while simultaneously installing a new polyethylene pipe in the old one’s place.

The great thing about this new pipe is that it comes with quite a bit of benefits, including:

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

Pipe Relining

If your sewer line is in slightly better 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.

Using a similar method as mentioned above, an epoxy liner and inflatable sleeve are inserted in 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 that is guaranteed a 50-year, or more, lifespan
  • It fully molds to the old pipe
  • It can help stop leaks and root intrusion
  • It can fully withstand being conducted 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 tend to be enthusiastic about the option to repair their sewer issue using one of the trenchless methods mentioned above.
