Why dig up your entire backyard if you don’t have to? If you already have an existing sewer line that needs trenchless repair, we can help—and it doesn’t require an excavation crew of 10, excessive noise, or that you leave the comfort of your home for several days. We can have the job done in as little as one day, so go ahead and go to work. When you come home, you’ll have your sewer repaired and ready to run. If you associate sewer repair with the destruction of your basement or lower floor of your home, you’ll be pleased to know that our Memphis trenchless sewer repair services do not require this at all.

How exactly does it work? The key to the process is in the word “trenchless,” which means the only hole we’ll ever need to dig is incredibly small and won’t ruin your newly blossomed petunias. There are two methods we usually use during a Memphis trenchless sewer line replacement and repair: pipe relining and pipe bursting. For each, we’ll need to dig a small hole to access a pipe connected to the area we wish to fix. Then, we’ll use one of our two non-invasive solutions. Read on to discover more about them.

Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining

This process is pretty self-explanatory and involves relining your old pipe with a new structural liner. What we do after we locate a point of easy access is slide in the amount of lining needed to cover up the cracks or holes in your existing pipe. At first, the lining is flexible, but after a few hours, it hardens thanks to the epoxy solution it’s soaked in before use. When it does harden, it creates a watertight seal that prevents the leaks you were previously experiencing.

Pipe Bursting

If your underground sewer line has extensive damage, we won’t be able to line it. Instead, we’ll do something called hydraulic pipe bursting, which uses hydraulic equipment to break up your existing drain pipe. We’ll do this after we have slid a brand new one inside the old one, making installation a breeze.

How do we determine which one you need? The first step of our process involves video camera inspection using one of our advanced tools. After seeing inside your sewer, we’ll know which solution to choose.
