When it comes to underground sewer repairs, most homeowners assume that if their sewer pipe has failed, a new one must be put in the ground. This would mean that anything above the area of the pipeline would need to be moved or excavated. Often times this means driveways, patios, pools, slabs, roads, sidewalks and landscaping would need to go to make way for the pipe installation.
Thankfully, trenchless technology has come a long way and we now have trenchless pipelining. Trenchless pipelining is simply the process of relining or rehabilitating an old failing sewer line (sanitary line) with a new one. Think of trenchless pipelining as adding a continuous sealed pipe within a pipe. This is performed using high-pressure inversion on an epoxy-impregnated felt liner. After the failed host pipe is cleaned and cleared of blockages and obstructions, the new pipe liner is shot through the existing pipeline using a high-pressure inversion tank. The tank fills a calibration tube full of air and the new liner is cured into place making a perfectly brand new sealed pipeline inside of the old pipe.
This trenchless pipelining process can happen from above ground from a single access point like a cleanout. If you have a failing sewer line, call us. We can evaluate your pipeline and see if your home is a good candidate for trenchless pipelining services.
