Santa Barbara Trenchless Sewer Replacement Service

One of the biggest projects for plumbing contractors is a complete sewer replacement. This kind of work is recommended when sewer damage is far beyond normal repair, or for older homes that need to update their plumbing systems. If you find yourself in one of these situations, give us a call and inquire about trenchless sewer replacement.


Trenchless Sewer Replacement Is About 1/3 The Cost Of Traditional Sewer Replacement

The Economics Of Sewer Replacement

Roughly one-third the cost of a traditional sewer replacement, trenchless sewer replacement is far more economical and efficient. Sewer line replacement is needed when pipes are worn out or damaged by aging, calcification, or tree root intrusion. Rather than tearing through your yard to replace the entire sewer line, a new sewer line is pulled through the existing one. The old pipes are displaced by either “bursting” or “slitting”, depending on the property layout. Pipe bursting uses a bursting head to create pressure within the existing pipes until they are reduced to fragments. Once the way is clear, the new pipes are pulled into position. If pipes with a larger diameter are needed, an expanding cone is used to widen the space. Alternatively, pipe slitting breaks the pipe by slitting it lengthwise at the top. Either method gives you a brand new line without causing undue damage to your yard and property. Our skilled plumbing professionals at Jerry’s Plumbing will survey the area to decide which method is best.

In rare cases, the amount of damage to a sewer line may be too severe to consider trenchless sewer repair. If pipes are too old or damaged, we’ll most likely recommend digging up the affected section of pipe for replacement. That’s why it’s important to call a reputable plumber at the first signs of trouble for a thorough video inspection.
