As a homeowner, you are responsible for the portion of your sewer line that leads from your house to the main sewer lateral under the street. This means that any time you have a blockage, clog, root infiltration, or other sewer line problems, it’s up to you to find a plumber who can repair the line.
When you’re looking for a no-dig sewer line repair method, trenchless pipe repair is the way to go!
How Trenchless Sewer & Pipe Repair Works: The Process, Advantages & Timeline
In homes connected to sewer systems, an underground sewer line runs from the house to the main sewer line. When this connection is interrupted due to rusted, dislocated, or damaged lines, your sewer system won’t function properly.
In the past, replacing a broken sewer pipe used to mean pipe excavation that would destroy entire yards and driveways. But with trenchless sewer repair, we can spare your lawn, driveway, and walkways from disaster. In other words, trenchless pipe repair will cause minimal disruption to your property. That’s one of its biggest advantages!
Another major advantage of trenchless pipe and sewer line repair is how fast it can be completed. In fact, trenchless pipe and sewer repair only takes one to two days, depending on the extent of the damage and the scope of the job.
Here’s our method for trenchless sewer pipe bursting:
- We create small access points in the damaged pipes.
- A cable is inserted and pulled through, following the path of the existing line.
- Simultaneously, the cable pulls the replacement line into position. The new polyethylene pipe is rated to last for 50 years.
Our trenchless solution means that your drains will be repaired quickly without destructive open trench digging in your yard, patio, driveway, or garden.
Our service technicians have years of experience when it comes to trenchless sewer line repairs. We are the trenchless repair experts, and we can solve your sewer problem—guaranteed!
We offer FREE estimates and a 2-hour response time on all main drain and sewer line emergencies!

Signs You Need Sewer Line Repair Service
Knowing the signs of a broken sewer pipe can help you take quick action so you can, hopefully, take advantage of trenchless repair methods.
A clogged or cracked sewer pipe will often be signaled by:
- Frequent drain backups (all drains—not just one fixture)
- Strange reactions when using your plumbing fixtures, like a flushed toilet causes a tub or shower backup
- Puddles of mud, sludge, or sewage in your yard (you’ll notice the smell)
Clogs or backups in your sewer line will begin to cause water backups in the lowest point in your home (e.g., in the basement, if you have one), and running the water will make it worse.
If you’re only dealing with a clog in one drain (sink, toilet, shower), it’s likely an isolated problem rather than a sewer pipe issue.
Please be aware, however, that trenchless sewer repair is not possible in all situations. If your sewer line is sagging or completely collapsed, we won’t be able to fit the cable through the pipe to perform pipe bursting. In these cases, a conventional dig will be required.
Our experts can assess the state of your pipes, explain whether trenchless repair methods will work, and tell you more about your best sewer line replacement option.
