Until recently, home and business owners put off taking the plunge into sewer pipe repair because traditional pipe repair and replacement is a messy and expensive undertaking, often involving multiple contractors from the landscaping industry as well.
However, the advent of trenchless pipe repair technology has revolutionized the industry because of how much faster and more efficient the method is, as well as how much money and time it can save customers.
Trenchless sewer repair is one of the most effective ways to repair a wide range of pipe issues and sewer problems, including leaks, breaks, tree root invasion, and even fully collapsed pipes. The fundamental concepts behind trenchless sewer repair are relatively basic and easy to understand, though the method relies on cutting-edge equipment and technology. At Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services, there are two main trenchless sewer repair methods that we rely on to restore your pipes: pipe lining and pipe bursting.
Trenchless pipe lining is a good option for repairing pipes that have deteriorated or suffered damage due to leaks or infiltration from tree roots. Also known as cured-in-place pipe, this pipe repair method creates a new pipe directly within a damaged one. In this process, the technician inserts a resin-coated pipe liner into the old pipe, then inflates it until it adheres to the walls of the previous pipe. After the liner cures, normally within a few hours, it becomes a new pipe that is not just seamless and highly durable, but resistant to further damage in the future.
Pipe bursting is another trenchless method technicians employ in circumstances where the sewer system is severely damaged or compromised, such as a fully collapsed pipeline. To begin the process, trenchless technicians dig small access holes and feed a conical bursting head into the damaged sewer line. The bursting head then breaks up the old pipe, while simultaneously installing a new pipeline behind it. This process creates a completely new pipe without having to maintain any part of the old pipe, and the new pipe is resistant to root intrusion and also usually rated to last for several decades.

Because trenchless sewer repair is significantly more efficient than traditional digging replacement, it’s also much safer and less expensive. Because the trenchless method eliminates the need to excavate the pipeline, homeowners not only pay less for labor costs but also will not have to repair or replace any landscaping or hardscaping after the work is complete.
