In the past, a problem with one of your main water or sewer lines was one of the most terrifying and devastating problems a homeowner could face. Fixing the issue involved digging up your yard to find the pipe, cutting out the damaged section, and then replacing it with a new pipe. The process took days, cost tens of thousands of dollars, and required you to essentially completely reconstruct your yard from the ground up when completed. However, today that’s no longer the case. Thanks to modern trenchless pipe repair technology, it’s possible to completely replace your damaged pipe without the invasive digging and massive service cost.
How Trenchless Pipe Repair Works
The trenchless pipe repair process requires a few extra steps than the previous method, but is quicker, more reliable, and easier to complete, which saves you a ton of time and money. The process starts by digging a hole on either end of the damaged section of your plumbing line for access. They then cut into the line, separating the segment to be replaced and creating a hole they can use to access the damaged pipe.
Once access has been established, your plumbers use a winch to pull a fabric tube that’s imbued with resin into the damaged plumbing line. Once this tube is in place, the plumbers seal both ends of it and then inflate it with compressed air, forcing it to expand to the dimensions of the existing plumbing line, which is how it cures. Once the fabric liner is cured, it becomes solid and seals any leaks or cracks that may have existed in your previous plumbing line. The plumbers then replace and re-seal your pipe, ensuring that the connection is solid again.
As opposed to the traditional process, trenchless pipe repair can be completed in as little as one day, depending on the size of the line that needs to be replaced and how easy it is to get access to the line.
