With cost-effective trenchless sewer repair technologies, experienced technicians at Arrow Sewer & Drain can repair and upgrade sewer lines in less time and with minimal disruption to home and family. We serve homeowners throughout north and central New Jersey.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Using modern camera technology, trenchless sewer repair starts with a thorough inspection to locate any problems with the plumbing or drains. If repair is needed, a new lining or replacement pipe is pulled through the existing pipe, eliminating the need for heavy excavation.
If it is determined the home requires either trenchless sewer repair or trenchless pipe repair, a plan and cost estimate are submitted to the homeowner. The specifics of the proposed methods and materials depend on the location and extent of the problem.
How Trenchless Sewer Repair Is Accomplished
After the homeowner has agreed to the proposal, sewer technicians excavate one or two small areas. These serve as entry points for the process of repair and an exit for pipes and other materials to be pulled through existing sewer lines. Most existing pipes are compatible with trenchless methods, whether they are made of clay, cast iron, copper, plastic, or fiberglass. The new pipes will either burst the old pipes or fit inside them.
Materials Used in Trenchless Sewer Repair
Using state-of-the-art equipment and materials, Arrow Sewer & Drain technicians will determine which materials are most beneficial for the repair or replacement at hand. Materials used may include epoxy resin-soaked fiberglass pipes, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, PVC pipe, or use other polymers. Those pipe materials treated with epoxy or polymers will harden and serve as new, long-lasting pipe material for the sewer line.
What Are the Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Trenchless sewer repair or replacement usually costs less than traditional sewer replacement technologies. This is because it uses fewer technicians and there is less manual labor for digging and moving soils, lifting and placing pipes, and restoring the landscape after the process is completed. In other words, the crew is smaller, and the work is accomplished more quickly. There are other advantages to trenchless sewer repair that also provide savings to homeowners:
- The home usually is restored to working order in less time
- Property damage and restoration of landscaping are minimized
- Repairs with high-quality materials are a durable improvement that adds value to the property
