A clogged sewer line can be a problem, but a broken sewer line quickly becomes a
disaster. Traditional sewer line repair requires heavy digging equipment and will result
in a seriously torn up lawn. However, trenchless sewer line repair will get the job done without any major damage being done to the surrounding areas.
Although it doesn't work in every cast, most broken sewer lines can be fixed using trenchless repair techniques.
How Does Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Work?
Normal sewer line repair requires removing old pipes and replacing them with new ones. A trench less sewer line repair avoids that process by threading a new pipe through the old. This is called "relining." The pipe lining is flexible and water tight, allowing for water to move freely through the damaged pipes.
If simply lining the pipes is not an option, plumbing companies can still preform a form of trench-less sewer line repair. An entirely new pipe can be pushed through old, broken pipes. As it is moved through the line it will take the place of the old sewer line. The old pipes will break or shatter as the new, stronger pipe is installed.
Both options may require some digging to make the initial entry into the pipe. Some homes offer an easy access point however and will require little or not digging whatsoever. Either way, there will be significantly less damage done to a yard by using the trench-less method.
Unless you are an experienced plumber, it is heavily recommended that you leave trenchless repairs to the professionals. An improperly lain pipe could cause serious damage and leave digging it out the only option available. It takes years of training to become a master at trench less sewer repair.
