Trenchless Sewer Repair in Olympia
Residents of the Olympia area are likely to encounter sewer line problems at some point, and Mr. Rooter can help. Many homeowners dread the idea of replacing a broken sewer line.
The end of summer signals the heaviest annual rainfall period for the Olympia area, and a sewer line issue will worsen with heavy rain. Instead of digging up a broken sewer line, dropping a new one into the trench, and leaving an unsightly mess behind, the Mr. Rooter trenchless system allows us to quickly insert a brand new pipe inside of the old one. This process is incredibly valuable in the autumn months before the heavy rains arrive and sewer line repairs are more complicated.
With all that Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Olympia does, it’s hard to believe that we are also the experts to install, repair and maintain your sewer line! Mr. Rooter does more than just service your sewer line; we offer the latest repair technology that alleviates damage done to your beautiful landscaping during the repair.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?
Using traditional methods, replacing a sewer line usually entails digging up the yard around the property and extensive, messy construction. You don’t have to worry about that with Mr. Rooter. Our trenchless sewer line repair system allows us to fix broken sewer lines in a fraction of the usual time with minimal yard damage.
We find both ends of the broken sewer line pipe and then use our Pipe Pull method to insert a new pipe or pipe liner. Pipelining will essentially replace your existing sewer line pipe’s interior surface, making it like new again, free from debris and residue buildup.
You won’t have to worry about repeat maintenance with the pipes we install, either. All of the sewer line replacement pipes and liners have a product lifespan of one hundred years. They’re also resistant to chemical corrosion and tough enough to prevent tree roots from crushing or breaking them.
Types of Trenchless Sewer Repair
There are two different types of trenchless sewer line repair that Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Olympia specializes in, and your Mr. Rooter plumber will decide which method is best after doing a thorough examination of your specific sewer line problem. Both ways utilize special equipment such as a video inspection camera to determine the exact problem and where it is located. Cameras allow us to decide how to fix it and where to begin the repairs. Traditional sewer line repair required plumbers to use a large backhoe to dig up the ground surrounding and over the sewer line before making all necessary repairs. Once the work was complete, the dirt was replaced, leaving behind a yard in desperate need of a landscaper. Trenchless technology alleviates the mess caused to your yard, making it the more preferred method of sewer line repair.
How It Works
The two methods of sewer line repair are pipe relining and pipe replacement. When pipe relining is chosen as the repair method, it is usually because a small area needs to be mended.
First, pliable material is inserted into the sewer line, aimed precisely for the damaged area. Then, an inflatable tube is inserted and held in place while the material dries. Once dried, the tube is deflated and removed and what is left behind is a new sewer line surface that is free of cracks and breaks and ready to be used. If we determine that the damage is more substantial or covers a larger area of the sewer line, we might use pipe replacement. With this method, a new pipe is inserted into the location where your sewer line is already installed, using your existing sewer line to guide it. The new sewer line breaks up the old sewer line as it passes through it, and there is no need to dig up the broken pieces. All that is left to do is connect the new sewer line to where the old one was, and your sewer line is ready to be used. We also use this type of method when you need a more extensive sewer line or when the existing one is extremely old, weak, and no longer works properly.
Why Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?
Trenchless sewer line repair has many advantages over the traditional method, with the most significant advantage being that your yard is not damaged in the repair process. Trenchless sewer line repair makes sewer line repair possible in areas that would be impossible or dangerous to operate a backhoe.

Your sewer line can be cracked from settling soil above it or from tree roots that have grown into and through it. Tree root intrusion often happens because when trees are planted and houses are built, it is difficult to guess where trees’ roots will go. Cracks and breaks of your sewer line are even more common when your home is older because the sewer line has most likely been in place for many years. Also, the materials that we use today to build sewer lines are far sturdier than they were in past years, causing older sewer lines to be more susceptible to breakage.
