It used to be the only way to access the underground portion of your plumbing system was to have a professional plumbing service come out with a backhoe and dig large trenches all throughout your yard. And, if the problem was in a section of pipe that was under your driveway or patio - then the digging had to happen there as well. The result was several days of disruption, significant expense, and a driveway, patio, lawn, and deck that needed replacing or repair.

Are My Pipes Suited To A Trenchless Repair?

Our team offers two basics types of sewer line repair using a trenchless approach.

  • Pipe relining. When your pipes have become cracked or have shifted in the Earth, a pipe relining might be the best trenchless sewer line repair option for you. In this process, we run a long piece of rolled up material into your damaged pipe, and put a balloon material inside of that. Next, the balloon is inflated and that expands the rolled up material until it adheres to the inside walls of the pipe. Once the material touches the inside walls of the pipe, it begins to form a seal that is impenetrable. You are left with a firmly sealed pipe that will last for years to come.
  • Pipe Bursting. If your pipe is too damaged and pipe relining is not an option, then we offer pipe bursting. In this process, we run a new section of pipe inside of the old, damaged pipe and break down the old pipe to make room.

Both pipe relining and pipe bursting are considered non-invasive methods, and are done as trenchless sewer line repairs. The great thing about pipe relining and pipe bursting are that they provide you with the same level of quality sewer line pipe repair - without the extra damage of digging.
