Traditional sewer repair will require digging up your property to get to the pipelines underground. This is a costly method of repairing or replacing pipelines since it is more labor intensive and requires more clean-up. That’s why we offer trenchless sewer pipe repairs. Instead of digging a trench in your yard, we can make repairs or replace a sewer entirely through the old pipeline without having to dig it up. If you need sewer repair in Buffalo, NY or Tonawonda, NY, contact our team today at (716) 894-4382.
Trenchless Sewer Repair
When first starting out, we have to first find the source of the problem. We’ll start with a sewer camera inspection. This allows us to spot a crack in the pipeline without having to dig around to find it. Once we’ve located the issue, we will dig up just a small area near that section of pipe so we can reach it and repair it from one side.
Repairing the pipe is a simple process. Once we’ve gained access to the pipeline, we can clean the pipeline using a hydro jet and insert a resin sleeve that cover the damaged area of the pipe. The resin is inflated so that it fits perfectly to the inside of the existing pipe and seals the cracks. After it is fitted, it only takes a few hours to harden in place.
Replacing a Sewer Line
Sometimes the damage is too extensive to simply repair a section of the pipeline. If this is the case, we can replace the old pipeline in a similar manner to making a repair. Instead of digging up the old pipeline, the new line will be inserted through the current one. Special equipment is used so that the old pipeline is burst and broken up as the new one is pulled through in order to create enough space for the new line.
Trenchless pipe repairs and replacements are a quick and cost efficient way to repair sewer lines without damaging your property and creating an unsightly messy. Contact The Plumber today at (716) 894-4382 for sewer repair services in Tonawonda, NY and Buffalo, NY.
