Trenchless Sewer Repair

Trenchless sewer repair is a highly practical, non-invasive pipeline repair technique that offers property owners a relatively fast and simple alternative to the conventional excavation technique, which is often messy, inconvenient and expensive. Not only is it far less costly; it also saves damage to landscaping,  streets, and driveways.

In most cases, sewer damage is caused by tree roots, settling soil, rodents or a blockage. What follows is a list of common sewer issues that can be resolved with trenchless sewer line replacement or repair:

  • Corroded pipes
  • Cracked pipes (plastic, lead, cast iron or clay)
  • Pipe ruptures and misalignments
  • Tree root blockages
  • Backed-up sewer
  • External damage by construction workers

How Trenchless Sewer Repair and Replacement Works

Basically, trenchless sewer repair or replacement involves inserting a new pipe into the existing, damaged one. The new pipe has a slightly smaller diameter and is made of an extremely thin and durable lining. In some cases with only localized damage, only point or sectional repair is necessary. However, it’s important to note that damage can often indicate an aging sewer system that will likely pose more problems in the future, in which case it is usually most cost-effective to do a complete relining.
