New sewer line repair methods have been developed

Traditionally damaged sewer line repair was performed utilizing the trench method also known as the open-cut method to access the damaged underground pipes. This entails a backhoe to expose and restore the work area. Today trench-less repair methods are used with the help of video equipment which limits the destruction to the surrounding property. The video system is an asset in identifying the repair options.

  • Bursting – This technique was developed in which plumbers break the old damaged pipelines apart and then pull a new seamless sewer line replacements through the old remnants of the use of hydraulics. It is in place all in one maneuver.
