Understanding Trenchless Sewers
Traditionally, sewer line repairs have always meant excavation, disrupting landscapes, driveways, and sidewalks. Trenchless sewer technology, however, eliminates the need for a big digging project. This method is a minimally invasive way of repairing or replacing a damaged sewer line.
The process typically utilizes one of two main techniques: pipe lining and pipe bursting.
- Pipe lining: This method involves creating a new pipe within the existing damaged one. A flexible liner coated with resin is inserted into the damaged pipe and inflated, creating a seamless, durable lining that essentially becomes a new pipe.
- Pipe bursting: This involves pulling a new pipe into place underground while simultaneously breaking apart the old pipe. It's a method particularly effective for replacing old, deteriorated pipes with new, high-quality ones.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does trenchless sewer repair cost?
The cost of trenchless sewer repair can vary based on factors such as the extent of damage, the length of the sewer line, and the specific method employed. To get an accurate estimate, it's recommended that you contact our professional plumbers at Atlas Plumbing & Rooter to schedule an assessment and inspection service.
Q: Are trenchless services always an option?
Unfortunately, no. Trenchless sewer repair is a versatile solution suitable for most situations, but lines that are too badly damaged, corroded, or destroyed need to be dug up and replaced. Additionally, lines with issues like significant sagging, bellying, or other construction or installation defects will need to be excavated to have the issue fixed before trenchless will become viable.
Q. Is trenchless truly a “no-dig” solution?
No. While trenchless eliminates roughly 95% of the digging that would be required, we more than likely will need to dig at least a small hole or two in order to gain access to your sewer line at both ends of the section of pipe we will be replacing. However, this will significantly reduce your landscape remodeling costs once the job is done.
