Get work done faster without the mess

When the entire sewer line needs to be replaced we usually do not need to trench up the entire yard. Either the existing concrete sewer is at the end of its lifespan and wearing through or the clay sewer line may be cracking and allowing roots in.

Regardless of the issues, we can replace the line through multiple different trenchless options depending on the circumstances. Trenchless sewer repair can be beneficial to homeowners because it is generally faster than traditional methods, and there is no heavy equipment or messy digging. 

Options for trenchless sewer repair

Two options for trenchless sewer replacement here in the Northwest are Pipe Bursting and Cure in Place Pipe (CIPP) Lining. The Pipe Bursting method requires multiple excavated areas and a hydraulic puller is used to pull HDPE pipe between. Connections are then made with PVC pipe and stainless steel strong back Fernco couplings. The Pipe Lining process is used when excavation isn’t feasible or as a cost-saving method when digging in the street would otherwise be required. The finished product is a seamless rigid pipe inside the old pipe. The host pipe can then continue its process of disintegration leaving the new Cure in Place Pipe which is rated to withstand root intrusions and shifting of the soil.

Pipe bursting

Pipe Bursting is a trenchless method of replacing the sewer pipe. Pipe Bursting needs at least two excavated areas and a hydraulic puller is inserted into one hole. A chain or cable is run through the existing pipe and connected to a fused together length of HDPE, High Density Polyethylene pipe and then pulled through the existing concrete or clay pipe breaking or bursting the existing pipe in the process.

Cure in place pipe lining

Cured In Place Pipe Lining is a trenchless method of replacing sewer pipe. The Pipe Lining method can be installed through a single excavated area. Roots and debris are first cleaned from the sewer line through Hydro-Jetting, a process where we use a trailer mounted 4000 psi jetter with a Warthog nozzle to cut away roots and wash out debris. The Liner is a sleeve that is saturated with a two part epoxy that is mixed together and inserted into the sewer line. A bladder is inserted and filled to expand the Liner while it cures which is about a two hour process. After deflating and removing the bladder a camera is inserted to ensure that the Liner was installed to perfection.
