What is Trenchless Sewer Replacement?

by | May 12, 2016 | Plumbing

Everyone knows that an underground sewer line problem can be a nightmare. Digging long trenches to get to those underground pipes can be extremely costly as well as disruptive. When pipes that run underground need repairing, the things above ground may need to be torn up, such as:

  • Lawns, Gardens & Trees
  • Patios & Pathways
  • Driveways & Sidewalks

Many unforeseen problems and obstacles can also come up unexpectedly, causing initial estimates to keep rising. No one wants to have to go through all of this destruction, yet for years this was the only option if a problem occurred underground.

Trenchless Sewer Replacement has made that nightmare a thing of the past! The latest technology is used to replace sewer pipes without digging up the whole sewer line. Only a few strategically placed holes are needed to access the line. The existing damaged sewer is used as a guide for the installation of the new pipe. A large cone shaped bursting head is hydraulically pulled by a steel cable through the old sewer line, breaking the old line apart while at the same time pulling into place a seamless pipe that is the same size or larger than the old pipe. Once completed the new seamless system is:

  1. Root proof
  2. Leak proof
  3. Earthquake resilient

It’s easy to see why Trenchless Sewer Replacement is the best choice for those who want the least amount of destruction and landscaping restorative costs. Always utilize professional, certified technicians who are experienced in pipe bursting methods.
