Trenchless refers to a method of installing and repairing sewer and water lines without digging a trench. Underground lines are accessed by inserting materials and equipment through a small pit or “clean-out” access point.
How Does Trenchless Plumbing Work?
Our plumbers begin trenchless plumbing repairs with video inspection camera equipment.
This allows us to see inside the pipe without having to dig through the ground. The camera sends images up to a monitor above ground, telling us the exact distance between the access point and the damage as well as the extent of the damage.
If the problem is more severe than a simple blockage, we can either dig above the section of pipe that needs attention or use trenchless technology to repair the area without digging.
Either option helps homeowners avoid extensive disruption to their yard, and allows our plumbers to perform precise inspections.
How do I know if I have a broken sewer or water line?
Water line damage is almost always revealed if the water pressure in your home is unusually low. Other times, your lawn will have soggy or uncommonly lush areas near the leak.
Sewer line breaks or blockages are indicated by slow drains, backups, or soggy areas in the lawn.

Advanced Trenchless Pipe Repair Options:
Hydrojetting and blockage removal
There are a hanful of reasons why underground pipes develop leaks or fail, including pipe corrosion, soil erosion, tree roots, sudden changes in temperature, or old age.
If the pipe failure is related to a blockage, plumbers use a technology called hydrojetting to clear it.
Another option is to use a plumber’s drain snake that has a cutter head at the end. The cutter head uses sharp, rotating blades to break the blockage apart. We then run water through the system to wash the debris away.
Trenchless pipe bursting
Certain sections of pipe will need to be replaced if they are beyond repair. But first, they need to be broken up to make room for the new material. Trenchless pipe bursting allows plumbers to install new sewer line sections without digging above it.
Underground pipe lining
In order to replace pipes using trenchless technology, our plumbing technicians essentially manufacture a new pipe underground. This method involves an epoxy-soaked liner that’s adhered to the old pipe wall.
