What Is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
Traditional sewer line replacement and repairs required a plumber to dig trenches to access the damaged sewer lines. Our trenchless sewer repair service is a non-invasive technique to fix damaged or broken pipes without digging and removing large portions of your yard, flooring, or foundation. This service repairs and restores the existing sewer line internally using the existing pipe as the blueprint. With this method, we can avoid damaging and affecting the foundational integrity of your home. Further, this technique adds no additional risk of expense to the repair. We’ll be able to repair your damaged sewer line seamlessly and effortlessly without breaking the bank.
How Do Trenchless Repairs Work?
Our trenchless repairs always follow the same process to ensure a quick and efficient repair. We’ll thoroughly inspect your sewer line to identify where the issue is located. This allows our plumbers to plan how to best fix your issue. During the inspection, we’ll clean any scale, buildup, or blockages to restore proper flow. We’ll use an epoxy-covered tube liner to get to the damaged section and allow the epoxy to harden. When hardened, the epoxy seals and repairs all the pipe’s cracks, leaks, or damaged sections. The hardened section is solid and sealed, ensuring no leaks and reliable results. Your new epoxy pipeline has a life span of 50 years, and thanks to its smooth surface, it can enhance flow capacity.
When Should You Replace Your Sewer Line?
While repairing cracks in your sewer line may be possible, replacement is recommended in a few scenarios. These include when the safety of your home is in question due to damage or when your sewer line is older and corroded. These scenarios can lead to costly repair bills or even health hazards if left untreated. Regardless of the reason, our team will take full advantage of our trenchless sewer line replacement technique when possible.
