How Trenchless Sewer Repairs Work

Our trenchless pipe bursting method begins by creating small access points to the damaged pipes. A cable is inserted and pulled through, following the path of the existing line, while simultaneously pulling the replacement line into position. The new polyethylene pipe is rated to last for 50 years.

Trenchless Sewer Repair FAQs

trenchless sewer repair for tree root infiltrationWhat are trenchless sewer repair pros and cons?

When it comes to sewer line repair options, trenchless is the better choice in most instances. Your landscaping is left intact, and trenchless solutions cause less damage to your property overall—with traditional sewer line repair, you could end up having to repave walkways and driveways in addition to redoing your landscaping and paying for the actual plumbing work.

How effective is trenchless sewer repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is extremely effective—the old cracked or damaged pipe is replaced with a completely new line. However, 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.

What are the signs of a broken sewer pipe?

It’s important to recognize the signs of a broken sewer pipe so you can take care of the issue early and, 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; and puddles of sewage in your yard (you’ll notice the smell). Clogs or backups in your sewer line will begin to cause water backups in the lower 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.
