Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

The Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Line: A Modern Solution

CIPP stands for Cured-In-Place Pipe, a trenchless sewer line rehabilitation method. It is a modern and innovative technique used to repair or restore existing underground pipelines without the need for extensive excavation. In the CIPP process, a flexible liner made of resin-saturated material, such as polyester or fiberglass, is inserted into the damaged sewer pipe. The liner is then expanded and pressed against the interior walls of the existing pipe using air pressure. Once in place, the liner is cured using UV light or left to ambient curing allowing the resin to harden and create a new pipe within the old one.

The CIPP method offers several advantages over traditional pipe replacement techniques. Firstly, it eliminates the need for extensive digging and excavation, minimizing disruption to landscapes, driveways, and other structures. This saves time and reduces the costs associated with restoring the affected area.

Trenchless Sewer lines Are A Versatile Solution For A Wide Range Of Plumbing Applications

Additionally, CIPP provides a seamless and jointless pipe within the existing pipe. This eliminates potential weak points and joints prone to leaks or root intrusion, improving the overall durability and longevity of the sewer line. The new liner is resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and abrasion, ensuring a reliable and long-lasting solution.

CIPP is suitable for rehabilitating various sewer lines, including residential, commercial, and municipal pipelines. In addition, it can be used to repair pipes with different diameters and configurations, making it a versatile solution for a wide range of plumbing applications.

Consult Your Plumbing Professional When Faced with Sewer Line Issues 

Overall, CIPP sewer line rehabilitation offers a cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional pipe replacement methods. It allows for the restoration of existing sewer lines with minimal disruption. It also provides a durable solution that meets the demands of modern plumbing systems. If you’re facing sewer line issues, consulting with a professional plumbing service experienced in trenchless technologies. Your professional can help determine if CIPP is the right solution for your specific needs.

What Is Pipe Bursting And What Are The Benefits?

Pipe bursting is a trenchless method used for replacing or upgrading underground pipelines, particularly sewer and water lines. It is an efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional excavation and replacement methods.

In the pipe bursting process, a new pipe is installed while simultaneously fracturing and displacing the old pipe. The procedure involves the following steps:

Access Points: 

Small access pits are dug at the beginning and end of the pipeline section to be replaced. These serve as entry and exit points for the bursting equipment.

Bursting Head: 

A specialized bursting head, equipped with cutting blades, is inserted into the old pipe through the access pit. The head is connected to a hydraulic system or a winch.

Fracturing the Old Pipe: 

The bursting head is pushed forward through the existing pipe, breaking it apart. The cutting blades on the head fracture the old pipe and push the fragments into the surrounding soil.

New Pipe Installation: 

Simultaneously with the fracturing process, a new pipe is pulled into place behind the bursting head. The new pipe, typically made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or another durable material, is attached to the bursting head. Next it is guided into position as the old pipe is displaced.

Completion and Connection: 

Once the bursting head reaches the exit pit, it is removed, and the new pipe is connected to the existing system. Again, proper alignment and joint integrity are ensured during the connection process.

Pipe bursting offers several advantages over traditional excavation and replacement methods:

Minimized Disruption: 

Pipe bursting significantly reduces the need for extensive excavation, minimizing disruption to landscapes, pavements, and other structures. In addition, it allows for replacing underground pipes without disturbing the surface above, reducing costs associated with restoration and repairs.

Efficient and Time-Saving: 

The pipe bursting process is typically faster than traditional methods since it eliminates the time-consuming task of excavating and removing the old pipe. This means less downtime for homeowners or businesses, minimizing inconveniences associated with service disruptions.

Improved Pipe Performance: 

Pipe bursting enables the installation of new pipes with larger diameters, improving the system’s hydraulic capacity and flow efficiency. The new pipe material, such as HDPE, is also more resistant to corrosion, leaks, and root intrusion, ensuring a longer lifespan and enhanced performance.


Pipe bursting can often be a more cost-effective solution compared to traditional excavation and replacement methods. It reduces labor, equipment, and restoration costs associated with digging trenches, disposing of old pipes, and restoring landscapes.

Pipe bursting is a versatile and reliable method in various applications, including residential, commercial, and municipal sewer and water line replacements. Consulting with a professional plumbing service experienced in trenchless technologies can help determine if pipe bursting is the right solution for your specific needs.

When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
