At Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services, we believe in educating our customers to make the best, most well-informed decisions regarding sewer repairs. As experts in the industry, we often find ourselves in the position of informing our customers about advances in sewer technology that can save them time, money, and headaches. One of the most common topics we discuss with our customers is the innovation of trenchless sewer repairs. When faced with the need to repair faulty sewer lines, the most common visualization of this process is the excavation of deep, long trenches that span across yards and driveways in order for technicians to access the sewer line and conduct repairs as replacements as needed. This cumbersome process was slow and inefficient, often taking weeks to complete and leaving behind bouts of property damage and even health hazards after the job was finished. Before the advancements of trenchless sewer repair, these methods were seen as the standard, but at Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services, our standards have shifted to accommodate trenchless sewer repairs as the primary, favorable method for our customers.
How Do Trenchless Sewer Repairs Work?
Trenchless sewer repair is a revolutionary process that makes it possible for technicians to fully replace a damaged sewer line without digging a massive trench or removing the existing pipe. At Feltner’s Sewer and Drain Services, we use a method called cured-in-place pipe lining, which only requires small access holes to reach the pipe. With this solution, the technician pushes an epoxy-saturated pipe lining through the sewer line. When the epoxy hardens, it fuses to the interior of the original pipe, creating a seamless new pipe within a pipe – all without the need to dig up the yard or driveway.

- The new pipe is extremely durable, resisting future leaks, cracks, corrosion, weather damage and tree root intrusion.
- All of the materials used to create the cured-in-place pipe are high-quality, with lifespans measured in decades.
- Most trenchless sewer repair installations can be completed in a fraction of the turnaround time of a traditional repair project, with little to no interruption to your water services.
