Laguna Plumbing Pros is often tasked with large plumbing repairs for homeowners throughout Orange County. One of the main repair items we investigate is the replacement of an old or broken sewage line. Trenchless sewer line replacement is an innovative technique for repairing or replacing damaged sewer lines without the need to excavate large portions of your yard. It’s an increasingly popular alternative to traditional methods due to its minimal disruption and quicker completion time. There are two main types of trenchless sewer line replacement methods: pipe lining and pipe bursting.
Pipelining, also known as Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining, is a method where a flexible tube coated with resin is blown or pulled into the damaged pipe and inflated. The resin then hardens, creating a pipe within a pipe that is resistant to leaks and root intrusion. This method is highly effective for repairing leaks or cracks in your sewer line. It typically requires only a single access hole and can even navigate bends and turns in the pipe.
Avoid Potential Repair Bills and Unforeseen Disasters with Trenchless Replacement
Pipe bursting, on the other hand, is a method used when the existing pipe is too damaged for relining or needs to be upsized. In this process, a bursting head is fed into the old sewer line. As it moves through, it breaks up the old pipe while pulling a new pipe in behind it. This method requires two access points – one for entry and one for exit.
Both trenchless sewer line replacement methods offer numerous advantages over traditional methods. They cause significantly less damage to your property since there’s no need for extensive digging. They are also faster, more cost-effective in the long run, and provide a lasting solution to sewer line problems. However, these methods may not be suitable for all situations, and a professional plumber will be best placed to advise on the appropriate method for your specific circumstances.
