When you think sewer line repair, you're probably thinking about how you're going to have your newly planted garden or lawn dug up, maybe even your driveway, and can't even bear the thought of having to recover from that – is there any other way?
In fact, there is! While traditional sewer repair results in the above, trenchless sewer repair have become increasingly popular in the last few decades, with the entire process only becoming more efficient due to advancements in technology and our tools.
What is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?
Trenchless sewer line is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional, open-trench repair. Instead of digging a trench around the affected areas of pipe, trenchless sewer line allows for repair or replacement without digging up the old one. This helps avoid:
- Digging up large areas of grass
- Breaking up sidewalks or driveways
- Ripping apart walls or flooring up
- Leaving your house during service
How Does It Work?
There are two common methods of trenchless sewer repairs, which include:
- Slip lining – If slip lining can be done, a new pipe will be pulled through your existing pipe and grouted in place. This reduces flow capacity but leaves a brand new pipe with extra protection!
- Pipe Bursting – Pipe bursting is as it sounds. The plumber pulls a bursting tool through the old pipe, forcing it to break apart as the new pipe is pulled into place without the need for additional reinforcements.
Trenchless vs. Traditional Sewer Line Repair
Because trenchless repairs require only one hole, they are less disruptive and cause less damage to the surrounding area than traditional sewer repair. Trenchless can also solve various common sewer problems that may have developed in your home, including:
- No hot water
- Tree root intrusion
- Clog or blockage
- Pipe corrosion
- Low water pressure
- Unexplained water bill spikes
- Unexplained puddles of water
Your sewer is an insanely important part of your home, so it's essential that you never delay getting the proper sewer service and repair. With the help of trenchless repair, you'll be able to have the same quality repair done in about a quart of the time it would have taken for a traditional repair to be completed.

Faster Sewer Line Repairs
Plumbing maintenance and repairs are already a drag – so one could only imagine how long a sewer line repair may take. Luckily, trenchless sewer line repairs can be completed within only a few days, which is a very welcomed benefit to those who may be considering traditional repair, which infamously can take up to five days or even more due to rain delays.
Less Work to Restore Property
Instead of having to refill the 15-foot trench surrounding the pipe that was replaced, only two tiny holes will need to be filled by the plumber. Afterward, some dirt, new sod, and time can make things blend in again.
Access Pipes Easily
And you won't have to worry about breaking down your home's walls either, as this type of sewer line repair requires very little destruction, making it possible to reach even the deepest and most well-hidden sewer lines with ease.
