What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Traditional sewer line repair methods, which may still be used to address extensive damage, require costly and time-consuming trenching. This may entail digging up your entire yard, driveway, or landscaping (or even breaking through structural walls). After replacing the damaged pipe, the contractor must then make property repairs.

Trenchless repair methods avoid that entirely. Contractors need only one or two access points (which may require localized digging or access via the cleanout). The most common forms of trenchless sewer repair include:

  • Pipe Lining: Inserted into an old sewer line, a cured-in-place pipe liner is a sleeve coated in an epoxy. Once it’s in place, the liner is inflated and the epoxy is allowed to cure (using steam or UV light). The seal forms a new wall in a concrete, cast iron, clay, or PVC pipe within hours. Another method involves spraying or brushing a resin inside the old pipe. A repair crew can also fit a smaller diameter pipe in the existing line and fill the space between the two pipes.
  • Pipe Bursting: A hydraulic machine called a bursting head is inserted into the old sewer pipe and breaks it apart from the inside, pushing the old material to the side. At the same time, it pulls a new high-density polyethylene pipe in to fill the space; the new section is secured to the ends of the existing line. Pipe bursting requires two holes at either side of the line and can even increase the diameter of pipes.

Signs You May Need Sewer Line Repair in Troy, MI

Trenchless sewer repair is faster than traditional methods, which may take days to more than a week. However, any delays in service increase the risk of damage to your home and health hazards due to sewage backups. Call Hoover if you notice signs of a problem, such as:

  • Slow Drainage: If drains throughout your home are moving slowly or not working as well, call a sewer repair professional. The problem is likely in the main drainage or sewer line, causing water to back up due to a blocked or collapsed pipe.
  • Flooding: A broken sewer line can cause water and waste to back up through toilets, sink drains, and other fixtures and flood your home, potentially leading to extensive damage. If there are soft, damp patches of ground or grass when it hasn’t rained, a sewer line may be leaking or broken.
  • Sewage Odors: If your sewer system isn’t working properly, you’ll smell it. Call for help when odors from human waste or sewer gases are present inside or outside your home.
  • Unusual Noises: Older buildings often have noises coming from plumbing and sewage lines. If the noises are constant and getting louder, they can indicate a blockage. Call a plumber to investigate the issue before there’s more serious damage.
  • Pests: Insects, mice, rats, and other creatures are attracted to sewage. Bugs can breed in stagnant water, while rodents that live in sewer lines can find their way through cracks and into your home. Their presence can indicate a sewer leak.
  • Higher Utility Bills: Sewer line damage can cause issues throughout your plumbing system. If your water bills keep going up, contact a professional to inspect your plumbing and sewer lines for any issues to fix.

Other Services We Provide

In addition to trenchless sewer repair, we offer other sewer line services, including:

  • Sewer Camera Inspections: Waterproof plumbing cameras are extremely valuable in diagnosing problems deep inside plumbing and sewer lines. They help find blockages and the location of damage, such as cracks, holes, collapsed pipes, and   tree roots. Even though sewer lines are typically several feet underground, a camera attached to a long cable can be fed through and its location recorded, so technicians can precisely identify where a leak or break is.
  • Hydro Jetting: Hydro jetting is the most advanced level of drain cleaning available. It uses high-pressure jets of water to break up clogs and dislodge scale and buildup from inside pipe walls. State-of-the-art equipment can help protect your plumbing and sewer lines in an emergency or on a routine basis, as the process can be used for preventative maintenance. And best of all, it is safe and eco-friendly.
  • Sewer Line Repairs: Our team can repair drainpipes, traps, branch drain lines, soil stacks, and main drain lines. Sewer mains traditionally represent the most challenging repair jobs. However, the latest techniques enable our plumbers to address any issue faster and more affordably. We can address clogged lines, wastewater overflows, leaks, blocked lines, tree root intrusion, and corroded, shifting, or collapsed sewer pipes.
