Trenchless sewer repair is a modern plumbing technique used to repair damaged underground pipes. It gets its name as it does not rely on digging large trenches to access plumbing systems, but it is sometimes referred to as pipelining. Trenchless sewer repair is a great option to restore your damaged sewer lines or pipes as it is quicker, cheaper, and still just as effective as traditional sewer repair options. One of the greatest benefits of trenchless sewer repair is that your beautiful lawn can stay intact because there is no invasive digging!

Trenchless sewer repair starts with a camera inspection to determine the state of your underground pipes and locate the damaged areas. Then, a liquid epoxy is inserted down into the pipes through a long, flexible tube and injected into the cracks of the damaged area. When the epoxy hardens, the pipes are repaired and even stronger than before!

If you are experiencing sewer line problems, or believe you may have a damaged underground pipe, trenchless sewer repair may be the solution. It often is less expensive than traditional sewer repair, takes less time, and does not require any digging, so your lawn will remain intact.
