What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Unlike traditional sewer repair, which involves digging trenches into landscaping and even blasting through infrastructure, trenchless repairs are non-invasive and do not require technicians to dig into your property to access the pipeline. Trenchless repairs are completed entirely within the pipeline or underground and can be used to repair the sewer line or replace it in its entirety.

What Is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting is a method of trenchless repair that is performed entirely underground with the use of hydraulic equipment, a pulling machine, and pulling rods. The machinery obliterates existing pipes and then pulls replacement piping through. Pipe bursting results in zero to minimal damage aboveground and allows clients to choose the material of the new pipes. The old, exploded pipes disintegrate underground, making room for the new pipes.

What is Sewer Pipe Lining?

Pipe lining is a method of trenchless repair that uses a liquid epoxy resin to renew the existing pipeline. The old pipes are cleaned with forced hot air or hydro jetting and then a felt liner soaked in epoxy resin is inserted through an existing access point to the plumbing and pushed through. Using an existing access point eliminates the need for the technician to dig trenches to access the sewer line.

The resin is inflated until it hardens to the inside rim of the pipe, creating a pipe within a pipe. The new material is anti-corrosive and root-resistant, and these qualities make it environmentally-friendly and capable of lasting for over fifty years. . Additionally, pipe lining technology can be used to repair most pipes, including:

  • Ranging pipeline diameters from 2-to-12 inches
  • Various pipeline materials (Orangeburg, cast iron, clay, and PVC)
