Trenchless Sewer Repair and Line Replacement

What is trenchless sewer repair? Quite simply, trenchless sewer repair is the most minimally-invasive way to repair damaged sewer lines. In the past, sewer pipes were only accessible by digging. That means that your entire landscape (and maybe even your driveway) would be excavated just to reach the line. However, today there’s a more effective method. Trenchless methods allow our technicians to perform sewer repairs from a smaller access point, meaning less digging and fewer headaches for you to deal with. Pipe bursting is perhaps the most common trenchless sewer repair method. Read on to learn more about it.

How does pipe bursting work for trenchless sewer repair?

Pipe bursting allows for trenchless pipe installation after the damaged pipe is destroyed. First, a large cone shaped head is pulled hydraulically through an old sewer line. It is usually pulled using a steel cable. As it moves, it will break apart the old pipe under the ground. Simultaneously, the steel cable places an HDPE pipe where the old one was. This new pipe may be the same size as the previous one, but it may also be larger.

Why is pipe bursting so effective for replacing sewer pipe lining?

The most immediate benefit of trenchless sewer repair with pipe bursting is cost. Quite simply, you’ll save big because you won’t need to dig up large sections of your landscape for our plumbing technicians to get to work. However, there are even more benefits to consider. Here’s a closer look at why pipe bursting is such an effective and widespread method of pipe repair.
  • When compared to traditional methods, this can actually save the homeowner about 40%.
  • All of the repairs happen underground. No need to dig up your yard and ruin your property in order to replace this pipe. This not only saves money, but also time. Your neighbors will be likely happy about the more discreet repairs too!
  • Old sewer pipes are replaced with high-quality HDPE pipe instead. This is a seamless pipe that will last much longer.
  • Most trenchless sewer repair contractors will offer a lifetime warranty for the HDPE pipe. So, you do not have to worry about this pipe breaking down when you least expect it. The warranty will ensure that it is replaced if this were to ever happen.
