To put it simply, a small access hole in your home’s drain line– usually in a corner of your basement. Then, a dedicated drain-scanning robot travels the length of your drain. It’s guided by laser and infrared cameras to inspect your line and determine the cause of your problems.

Trenchless sewer line replacement offers numerous advantages, including: 

  • Reduced Disruption: Unlike traditional methods, trenchless technology requires minimal excavation, preserving your yard and minimizing disruption to your daily routine.

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Efficiency of trenchless methods can lead to cost savings, as less labor and equipment are required for the repair process. 
  • Durable Solutions: Trenchless repairs often result in a more robust and long-lasting sewer line, ensuring peace of mind for years to come. 

Comparison to Traditional Sewer Line Replacement

Types of Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

There are two types of trenchless sewer line replacement methods: 

1. Pipe Lining

This method involves inserting a flexible liner coated with epoxy resin into the damaged sewer pipe. The liner adheres to the inner walls of the existing pipe, creating a smooth and durable new inner surface. Pipelining effectively seals cracks, holes, and leaks, restoring the functionality of the sewer line without the need for excavation.

Pipe Bursting2. Pipe Bursting

In this technique, a new pipe is pulled through the old, damaged pipe, effectively fracturing the old pipe while simultaneously laying a new one. This method is particularly useful for replacing severely damaged or collapsed pipes with minimal excavation.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Process

Ofcourse, before your drain specialist replaces your sewer line, there are a few steps they should follow: 

  1. Inspection and Assessment

Before initiating the trenchless process, a comprehensive assessment of the sewer line is conducted using advanced camera technology. This assessment helps identify the extent of damage, blockages and potential issues within the pipeline. With a clear understanding of the problem, the technicians develop a custom plan for trenchless sewer line replacement. 

  1. Preparation, Access Points and Setup

The next step involves identifying strategic access points to the sewer line. These access points serve as entry and exit points for the specialized equipment used in the trenchless process. Minimal excavation is performed to create these access points, ensuring minimal disruption to your property.

After assessing the damage, it will become clear which trenchless sewer line replacement method is most appropriate for what kind of job. Once the method is determined, it’s time to begin the repair.

  1. Seamless Completion, Final Inspection and Testing

Once complete, the access points are sealed and final testing ensures the integrity and functionality of the new sewer line. The entire process is designed to minimize disruption, save time and provide a long-lasting solution to your sewer sorrows.

The cost of trenchless sewer line replacement can vary based on several factors:

  • Extent of Damage: The severity of the damage to the sewer line will influence the cost of repair. 
  • Pipe Material: The type of pipe material used for replacement can affect overall costs. 
  • Property Layout: The layout of your property and accessibility to the sewer line can influence the cost of repairs.
