Are you worried about the hassle and costs that come with traditional sewer repair methods? Thanks to trenchless sewer repair technology, you do not necessarily have to deal with the mess and inconvenience of excavating your property. In this blog post, we will dive into the benefits of trenchless repair, the differences between trenchless and conventional sewer repair, and how to know if your situation is a good candidate for this trenchless method.

What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is a non-invasive method of repairing or replacing damaged sewer lines without requiring extensive excavation. Our plumbers utilize specialized equipment to access your sewer lines and make necessary repairs without having to dig a trench through your yard. Instead, we access your sewer line through a single point (typically in the same area where we would normally access your sewer for drain cleaning or a video inspection). Then, a resin lining is inserted into the affected pipe and cured to create a new pipe within your existing pipes.

Trenchless sewer repair offers many benefits over older methods of sewer repair. Below are just a few of the benefits:

  • Reduced Damage to Property: Trenchless technology allows plumbers to replace or repair sewer lines without excavating your property. This minimizes damage to your landscaping, driveway, and other structures on your property.
  • Quicker Repairs: Trenchless sewer replacements can take as little as one day to complete, compared to several days or even weeks with traditional sewer repair methods.
  • Cost-Effective: Trenchless sewer repair can be less costly than traditional methods, requiring less labor and equipment.

Should You Choose Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Not all sewer line issues can be solved with trenchless sewer repair. Depending on the severity of the damage, conventional sewer repair methods may still be necessary. For example, a collapsed sewer line or one that is old and significantly damaged may still require excavation and removal of the original pipe.

Below are some scenarios where a trenchless sewer repair is a great option:

  • Broken or Cracked Pipes: If your sewer pipes are cracked or broken due to age or root intrusion, trenchless technology can provide a long-term solution without the need for excavation.
  • Misaligned Pipes: Homeowners may experience problems such as backed-up drains and slow-flushing toilets when the sewer pipe is misaligned. Trenchless sewer repair can help realign the pipe without excavation, saving your property from damage.
  • Corroded Pipes: Over time, sewer pipes can corrode and rust, leading to leaks and other issues. Trenchless sewer repair can help homeowners quickly address any corrosion issues.
