1. Trenchless Sewer Repair Methods

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer repair method used for replacing damaged or broken sewer lines. The process involves using a specialized bursting head to break apart the existing pipe while simultaneously pulling a new, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe into place. This method is effective for dealing with severe pipe damage, collapses, and instances where the pipe’s diameter needs to be increased.

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Lining

CIPP lining is a trenchless sewer repair method aimed at rehabilitating damaged sewer lines by creating a seamless, long-lasting pipe lining within the existing pipe. The process involves inserting a resin-impregnated liner into the damaged pipe and curing it in place using heat, steam, or ultraviolet (UV) light. Once fully cured, the liner forms a durable, smooth, and corrosion-resistant pipe within the existing pipe.

Pipe Relining

Pipe relining is a similar method to CIPP lining, but instead of using a resin-impregnated liner, a new pipe is pulled into the existing pipe and secured in place. The new pipe is generally made of high-quality materials such as HDPE, which is flexible, durable, and resistant to chemicals and corrosion.


Sliplining involves inserting a smaller, flexible pipe into the existing damaged sewer line, effectively creating a new pipe within the old one. The annular space between the old and new pipes is then filled with grout to secure the new pipe in place. This method can be used for sewer lines with minor damage or blockages, and it offers a cost-effective alternative to full sewer replacement.

2. Factors to Consider When Choosing Trenchless Sewer Repair

Extent of Sewer Line Damage

Before selecting a trenchless sewer repair method, it is crucial to determine the extent of the damage to your sewer line. Our experienced technicians will perform a comprehensive inspection of your sewer line using state-of-the-art equipment, such as video inspection cameras, to locate the exact problem and assess its severity.

Pipe Material and Age

The type of material used for your sewer line, as well as its age, may also play a role in determining the best trenchless repair method for your property. Older clay or cast iron pipes, for example, maybe more susceptible to damage and may require a different approach than newer PVC or HDPE pipes.

Cost and Time Efficiency

Trenchless sewer repair methods can vary in terms of cost and time required to complete the project. Before deciding on a repair method, consider factors such as the disruption to your daily routine, the extent of property disturbance, and the overall cost of the repair and any potential property restorations.

Local Regulations and Permit Requirements

Some municipalities and regions have specific regulations and permitting requirements for sewer line repair and replacement projects, including trenchless methods. Our professionals have a thorough understanding of these regulations and requirements and will ensure that your project is compliant with all local rules and standards.
