Residential Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

  Why Dig If You Don't Have To?

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement is the very latest in underground sewer rehabilitation and is the most efficient and cost effective way to replace or repair any length or diameter of residential sewer pipe. Trenchless methods allow for the entire sewer line to be replaced or repaired without the need for excavation saving homeowners thousands in collateral construction costs that would be normally be accrued using traditional "dig up and replace" methods. With Trenchless, your walkways, patio , landscapes, driveway and structures that lie in the path of the existing sewer line remain untouched as the new sewer line can now be fed underneath these obstructions without disturbing them.

  Residential Sewer Pipe Relining Technology

 

Residential Sewer Pipe Relining - This new technology allows for your existing residential sewer pipe to be relined from one small access point. The existing sewer line is first thoroughly cleaned using a method called hydro jetting that clears the line of roots, dirt, greases, and debris preparing the sewer pipe to recieve the new liner. The new seamless PVC infused liner is then measured out and cut to the proper length and saturated to 100% with environmentally approved epoxy resin. Once the new flexible liner is ready, it is blown into the existing sewer line by a special machine that uses carefully controlled air pressure. Once the new line is in place, a long bladder is then inserted the entire length an pressurized with hot steam to mold the new liner to the interior of the existing pipe. Once the pipe cures, usually in about 3 hours, the bladder is removed leaving a brand new air and water tight seamless "pipe within a pipe". The new liner cures so strongly, that is much more sturdy than the existing pipe was and seamless meaning there is no way for future root infestation which is the leading causes of sewer line failures today.

 

  Residential Sewer Pipe Bursting Technology

Sewer pipe bursting is another method of residential trenchless sewer line replacement that also requires very little excavation. Sewer Pipe Bursting is utlized when sewer pipe relining is not an option due to the exiting sewer pipe being to damage to recieve a new liner. With this method, the old sewer line is broken up and completed replaced with a new sewer pipe. Here is how it works: Two small access holes are made at each end of the existing sewer line. A cable is then fed through the entire length of the existing sewer line and attached to a spear shaped tool called a bursting head. The bursting head is securely attached to the new length of sewer line at the other access point. Using a powerful hyraulic winch, the bursting head is pulled by the cable through the existing sewer line easily breaking it up and pushing the pieces into the surrounding soil while towing the new sewer pipe in behind it. With residential sewer pipe bursting, the new pipe can be of larger diameter than the exsiting pipe if preferred to allow for a bigger capacity sewer line if desired.
