Trenchless Sewer Repair

There was a time not so long ago when sewer replacement meant digging some pretty sizable trenches – sometimes through your living room! – in order to reach a damaged pipe. While these extremely invasive methods are still being used, trenchless technology has made them a rarity.  That’s because today, in 2021, most sewer lines can be repaired via trenchless methods like pipe lining and pipe bursting. You save money with trenchless repairs because after the sewer repair is done you don’t need to replace walls, floors, kitchens, bathrooms, tiles, or landscaping.

Sewer Pipe Lining

Sewer pipe lining  – also called cured-in-place-pipe lining (CIPP), or just pipelining – is a trenchless repair method that uses a special epoxy to create a brand new pipe inside your old one. Here’s how it works…

  1. No sewer pipe lining job should ever begin prior to a sewer camera inspection. An inspection is necessary in order to measure your pipe and see what’s happening inside it.
  2. After we’ve finished with the sewer camera inspection, it’s time to clean and descale the pipe via either hydro jetting or some other method.
  3. Once the pipe is clean, a liner that has been saturated with a special 2-part epoxy resin is placed into the pipe. This liner contains a bladder that will be inflated using compressed air. The air expands the liner so that it presses up against the inside walls of the pipe. The special epoxy then seeps into all the cracks, tiny holes, and broken joints.
  4. Next, we allow the liner to cure for several hours.
  5. Finally, we deflate the bladder, remove it, and we’re done. You now have a brand new pipe within your old one.

Sewer Line Replacement in Universal City

Trenchless sewer repair saves homeowners time and money because it’s both quick and minimally-invasive. You aren’t left with a big mess to clean up later. Unfortunately, there are times when trenchless repair can’t be performed. If your pipe is back-pitched or has collapsed, it will need to be replaced using traditional methods. We’ve been using traditional sewer repair methods for decades. We’ll have your sewer line working again in no time!
