What is Trenchless Sewer Replacement

It can be incredibly expensive to repair or replace your sewer lines, and that is just thinking about the price of the sewer line alone; this does not account for the thousands of dollars it takes to pay to dig up your yard to reach the pipe, the labor to do so and all of the landscaping you’ll have to replace to fix the mess that was made.

On top of this, a broken or burst sewer line is going to take a toll on more than just the line, it is going to have an impact on your house with issues like backed up and overflowing appliances, water damage, and a messed up yard. So, a burst sewer line is not something that you can put off or wait to repair; it has to be fixed quickly. Unfortunately, using traditional methods of sewer line repairs is going to be an incredibly costly and frustrating repair. Thankfully, technology has come a long way, and there have been a lot of advancements which allow us to replace and repair underground sewer lines without having to spend your entire savings account or look at a completely excavated yard!

What is Trenchless Sewer Replacement?

One method of trenchless sewer line repair is known as pipelining. This method only requires you to make one small hole to enter into and access the damaged pipe. Then, a line made out of a strong epoxy is put into the entry point and lines the interior of the old pipe. An air-filled bladder that looks similar to a balloon is then inserted to hold the lining in place until the new epoxy lining is set.

Instead of taking upwards of a few days as traditional sewer line repair methods do, using this new trenchless technique only takes a few hours, a full business day at the very most. It takes a matter of minutes to line the damaged pipe with epoxy and then takes only 3-4 hours for the mixture to cure. After the curing time, the bladder is taken out of the line, and a robotic camera is inserted to make sure that all of the damage is completely repaired. This new method can last for 50 years or more and does so well that there are rarely future problems.
