How Trenchless Sewer Repair Works
As the name implies, trenchless sewer line repairs do not involve digging a giant trench through your property, but instead use modern technology to replace your sewer line right in place. The process is rather simple and begins with a comprehensive sewer line cleaning to remove any waste or debris that may still be stuck in the line. Once the line is clean, your plumber digs a small hole on both ends of the impacted sewer line. Once your sewer line is separated, your plumber pulls a special that is attached to a winch tool through your sewer line.
Your plumber then imbues a soft, fabric pipe with a specialized type of resin. The resin-soaked pipe is pulled through your existing sewer line while it’s still wet, soft, and flexible. Once the new line is in place, your plumber inflates the pipe like a balloon, allowing it to completely fill the space inside your existing sewer line. They then leave the line alone to dry, where it hardens in place to form a solid piece of pipe inside the existing, worn-out pipe itself.
Once the line is completely dry, your plumber reattaches it to your existing sewer system, checks for leaks, and then fills the two holes. The entire process takes only a few short days to complete and could save you thousands of dollars on the cost of completely remodeling your yard.
Is My Problem Fixable with Trenchless Methods?
It’s important to note that not all sewer line issues can be repaired by trenchless methods. In order for your sewer line to be repairable using trenchless technology, your sewer line must be able to withstand a certain degree of use. Lines which have collapsed, completely broken apart, become entirely obstructed, begun to sag, or which cannot withstand the pressure of a regular cleaning service. If a pipe becomes too thin, it won’t be able to withstand the trenchless replacement process, which instead means the whole line will have to be dug out and replaced.
