Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

It used to be that if a homeowner had a problem with a sewer line, the prospect of calling a plumber and having portions, or all, of their yard dug up in an effort to repair the sewer line was frightening, to say the least.  The good news is those days are over! Trenchless sewer line repair has changed the whole process, and for the better.

You can now get an estimate for trenchless sewer line repair and most homeowners are amazed at the savings and effectiveness of it, and also by the lack of invasiveness:  Your yard will not be demolished and your home not brought to its knees by a traditional time consuming sewer line replacement.

The reason why this new technology works so well is that the new pipes are, in effect, driven through the old sewer pipe system, thus replacing them.  These new pipes are seamless, which means no joints, which are known to be points where roots can break through. The structural strength of the new sewer line is much stronger than the line being replaced.

Your plumber inserts the new soft pipe, which is ¼” in diameter, and coated with resin, into the existing sewer pipe and it runs the entire length of the old pipe.  The new pipe is then filled with air, which cures and hardens it.  Now it has replaced the old sewer line.

Trenchless sewer line repair will save homeowners money, significantly, because there are no charges for digging up and destroying your yard, nor or any charges to put the yard back together.
