What is trenchless sewer repair?
Trenchless sewer pipe is a new way of replacing your underground drain or sewer pipe without digging a deep long trench from one end of the yard to the other. There are two new technologies known as trenchless sewer repair methods one called pipe lining (CIPP) and the other pipe bursting. Both can create a brand-new permanent pipe right where the old one lies, without damaging your lawn and landscape.
Pipe Lining (no longer offered)
Cured-in-place-pipe (pipe lining) places a flexible liner and epoxy resin and into an existing sewer pipe in order to create a new pipe when the resin cures. Pipe lining is cost effective compared to traditional methods. It is corrosion proof and can increase the life of the original pipe.
CIPP lining has a few disadvantages it can not be used in badly damaged or collapsed pipe. Also weather can play a role in the success or failure of the curing process. Unfortunately, The Plumbing Pro does not offer this method, we have learned over the years that pipe bursting is the better method for most sewer repair situations. Call for more information.

Pipe bursting is a method that replaces the old damaged underground pipe with a high-density polyethylene pip (HDPE) by pull the new pipe right through the existing pipe. A bursting head breaks apart the old pipe, pushes it out of the way and replaces it with a brand-new HDPE pipe. The advantages of pipe bursting include limited property damage. Using a larger burst head and new pipe can replace smaller pipe with larger one. It completely obliterates tree roots and other obstructions. And most importantly, it is a quick and safe.
With Pipe bursting sag correction and protecting utilities are big concerns.
Three Reasons to Consider Trenchless Sewer Repair
Save Your Lawn and Landscape – No Major Digging Required
The Plumbing Pro installs trenchless sewer replacement by digging two small access points along the line of the damaged pipe. One dug before the damaged area and one placed after. This allows you to skip a week of excavation equipment at your home, piles of dirt in your yard, and subcontractor haggling to fix the damage. You lawn, landscape even driveway can remain untouched.
Saves Time And Money
Excavation take time and be expensive. But it is the additional expense of lawn and landscape remediation that makes traditional sewer repair more costly than trenchless. Especially when you factor in the potential of subsequent repairs, caused by traditional excavation, of your landscaping, porches, walkways, and driveways – you add a significant additional cost to a more expensive method.
