Whether your sewer and water lines rest below massive oak trees, a driveway, a sidewalk, or you don’t want to tear up the lawn you worked so hard to grow, Mr. Rooter Plumbing can provide a solution for you. We offer trenchless pipe repair using our no-dig technology, in addition to keeping your landscaping in tact.
We offer services that can replace a broken line, upgrade a small water line to a larger one, or reline an existing pipe, all without destroying the existing features in your yard. Aside from eliminating the need to uproot your landscape, trenchless pipe repair is cost effective, generally takes less than one day to complete, and eliminates root intrusion. These methods, which meet all industry standards, can be performed beneath apartment buildings and houses.
The Pipe Pull™ method is used to replace a broken water or sewer line. With a small hole at each end of the run, we can pull pipe from one end of the yard to the water or sewer main. This method uses the existing damaged sewer line as a guide for the new pipe. A cone-shaped, path-clearing installation head attached to the new pipe is inserted through the old pipe. As the installation head passes through the existing pipe, it actually pulls in a full-size replacement pipe. This code-approved pipe is a completely root-proof, leak-proof, chemical and acid resistant pipe, with a 100 year design life.
Another trenchless repair option is pipe relining, which eliminates the need to remove the broken pipe. This method inserts a liner along the interior of the existing pipe. After the liner completely coats the old pipe, an inflatable bladder is inserted, holding the liner in place until it becomes dry and hard. After drying, the bladder is deflated and removed. Now, there is a new, seamless surface on the inside of the old pipe, virtually creating a new pipe inside of the old one.
