What is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?

Trenchless sewer line repair is a modern plumbing technique used to replace or repair pipelines without excavating them. These repairs can be done with minimal interruption of the surrounding soil, making the process faster and easier for everyone involved.

Traditional sewer repair usually involves extensive excavation of soil beneath the foundation, along with the professional engineering assessment to confirm structural integrity during and after the repair. With trenchless sewer line repair, our team uses specialized equipment to locate and determine where your pipe runs as well as its depth, in order to make sure the damaged areas are repaired. Once the location of the damaged sewer line has been identified, the entry point is determined typically through a cleanout or through a toilet drain – which every home has at least one of those. Using State of the Art Ultraviolet light Ray LR3 Packer is then pulled into the damaged area, the bladder is inflated with air pressure to set the repair. Then the UV lights are turned on to activate the resins’ curing process. The repair is fully cured within 10 minutes and will be ready for use. The once damaged and clogged drain line is rehabilitated saving the homeowner a significate amount of excavation costs, time and disruption to the property.

As we’ve already explained at length, trenchless sewer line repair has many advantages over traditional methods. The most obvious benefit is that it requires minimal digging, meaning disruption to your home and property is limited. Furthermore, compared to traditional sewer repairs, trenchless solutions are quick, saving you time and costs of labor associated with excavation and pipe-laying.
