Two Methods of Trenchless Sewer Repairs
Trenchless sewer repairs come in two different varieties: pipe bursting and pipe relining. Both options can completely replace your existing sewer line, but they go about it in two very different ways. Which way is right for you? The answer will vary, but an experienced sewer pro from our team can give you proper guidance after conducting a full video plumbing inspection of your sewer line. This process involves feeding a specialized camera into your sewer line so your plumber can see and evaluate the condition of your line for themselves.
Trenchless Pipe Bursting
Pipe bursting involves actively destroying your current sewer line while simultaneously putting a new pipeline in its place. This process involves the use of a powerful winch as well as a hardened steel tool known as a bursting head. The bursting head is slightly wider than the outer diameter of your sewer line and cone-shaped to make guiding it down your sewer line simpler.
As the winch pulls the bursting head through your sewer line, the head literally tears your sewer line apart while still in the ground. However, attached to the back of the bursting head is a new sewer pipeline constructed from a flexible plastic material. Once the bursting head reaches the end of the line, it is removed and the new, flexible pipeline is attached to your drains and main sewer connection. The only digging this process requires are two small holes—one at the start of the new line run and one at the end. This is the ideal choice for pipelines that are too badly damaged or destroyed to be eligible for pipe relining, but that are free from major faults or issues like sagging or bellying that require additional hands-on repairs.
Trenchless Pipe Relining
Pipe relining involves leaving your current sewer line in place and simply placing a new, thin liner over the inside of it to seal cracks, stop leaks, and create a new, smooth surface for water and waste to flow through. The process begins with a sewer cleaning service to remove any debris or gunk that may be stuck in the line, thus making the walls of your line as smooth as possible. Once the line is clean, the replacement crew pulls a resin-imbued pipe liner through your existing sewer line using a winch tool. Once in place, the crew inflates the liner like a balloon, forcing it to fill the entire inside area of the plumbing line. The liner is then allowed to cure for a day or two.
Once the liner is dry and solid, your plumbers test it to ensure it has cured properly and is leak-free. Once it passes this test, the new liner is attached to your drain and sewer connections and the two small holes that are dug on each end of the run are filled. This process can take slightly longer than pipe bursting, but does allow you to still utilize the existing sewer line you have in place. This is generally the preferable option for most trenchless sewer repairs.
