Understanding Trenchless Sewer Repair: How It Works and Its Benefits

In the world of plumbing, technology and innovation have transformed how we address some of the most challenging issues, such as sewer line repair. At American Rooter, we strive to bring our customers the best of these advances, and that’s why we’ve partnered with NuFlow Technologies to offer trenchless sewer repair services. In today’s post, we delve into what trenchless sewer repair is, how it works, and its numerous benefits.

What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is a method used to fix and rehabilitate existing sewer lines without the need for extensive digging or disruption to your property. This method uses a new, seamless liner that is inserted and set within the old pipe, essentially creating a pipe within a pipe.

How Does It Work?

Trenchless sewer repair involves two main stages. The first stage is the inspection, where a high-resolution camera is used to inspect the existing sewer line and identify any problem areas. Once the inspection is completed, the second stage involves inserting a flexible, resin-saturated liner into the existing pipe. Once in place, the liner is inflated and then cured or hardened, forming a new pipe within the old one.

What Are the Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair?

  1. Less Disruption: Traditional sewer repair methods often require extensive excavation, which can disrupt landscaping, driveways, and other property features. With trenchless repair, only a couple of small access points are required, significantly reducing property disruption.
  2. Cost-Effective: While the upfront cost for trenchless repair may be comparable or slightly higher than traditional methods, the overall cost becomes much more economical when you factor in the reduced need for property restoration after the repair.
  3. Time-Saving: Trenchless sewer repair can often be completed in a day or less, making it a faster solution than traditional methods that may take several days or even weeks.
  4. Improved Functionality: The new liner installed during the trenchless repair process is seamless and resistant to cracks, rust, tree root intrusion, and other common pipe issues. This can improve your sewer system’s overall functionality and longevity.
