How Does Trenchless Sewer Replacement Work?
The end of a steel cable is attached to our hydraulic cable puller which pulls the bursting head and pipe through the existing sewer line. The bursting head is slightly larger than the existing sewer line so as it is pulled it fractures the old pipe and drives it into the surrounding dirt. The new line then takes its place. The ends of the pipe are fused to the existing inlet and outlet to provide a no-nonsense leak barrier.
A trenchless repair requires two holes to be dug, one at the point where the sewer line enters the home, and one where the line attaches to the city sewer line. Our team then treads a steel cable down the hole and through the existing sewer line. A hardened steel bursting head is attached to the end of the cable and the new sewer pipe is attached behind it. It's the minimally invasive approach that saves money and recovery time for your yard.
What's really nice about this type of replacement is that it only takes a couple of hours from start to finish and leaves your yard looking great. No trench lines, no excessive hourly fees, and you'll get the same HDPE piping that will last a lifetime (actually more like 200+ years).
Why Do I Need My Sewer Line Replaced?
No sewer lateral will last forever. Invasive tree roots, external pressures, systemic sewer clogs and other factors can eventually destroy parts of your sewer line, which can case sewer backups and leak sewage into the soil. Several cities throughout the Bay Area now require sewer inspections when selling homes or structures, and in many cases a full trenchless sewer replacement with a cured in place pipe is the most cost effective solution.
