What types of trenchless sewer repair are there?

Cured-In-Place Pipe Repair

If we are able to detect your sewer problem before major damage occurs, trenchless sewer line repair could be the way forward!

A classic example is cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) sewer repair. This is a trenchless restoration method which involves inserting a seamless, jointless, and root-resistant lining inside an existing sewer line.

The lining, which contains resin, is exposed to a curing element which allows it to adhere to the inner walls of your sewer line. Voila! Once fully cured, you have a brand new pipeline.

It is worth noting that CIPP is EPA Certified and has no negative impact on the environment.

Pipe Bursting Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

If, however, our analysis renders CIPP sewer repair impossible, there’s no need to despair. We have other non-invasive procedures at our disposal. Pipe bursting is a great alternative if portions of your sewer line have collapsed or are otherwise unable to accept a new lining.

This trenchless sewer replacement method is as satisfying and simple as its name suggests. Two holes are dug at both ends of the line. A steel expander head is then dragged through the existing pipe. Its slightly larger diameter allows it to shatter the old pipe and push its pieces into the soil as it’s traveling. A new replacement pipe follows closely behind and takes the spot of the old. The new sewer line is then simply reconnected at both ends and is ready for use.

Our state of the art equipment can pull pipe through the ground at a maximum working force of 60,000 psi.
