To Dig or Not to Dig? Sewer Line Repair & Replacement Options in Phoenix

Sewer line repair and replacement is a serious endeavor that can take a lot of time away from your schedule. But there are some options that might make the process faster and easier. Traditional damaged sewer drains needed to be completely uncovered to repair them or put in a new pipe. But now there is another option that will allow you to fix your drains without the need for digging. Let’s learn more about this technology and how it can help you avoid digging up your precious lawn.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement & Repair

Trenchless sewer line technology was designed to repair or replace existing sewer lines with very little or no digging at all. But how does this method work? Depending on the sewer line, two small holes will be dug to access the pipe. After gaining access to the line, a new line is put into place which is attached to a bursting head. At the same time, the old pipe is shattered by the bursting head allowing the new pipe to take its place and be connected to the city sewer system.
