Trenchless Pipe Repair in Southeast Michigan

Repairing underground pipes has traditionally been a disruptive and costly process. Trenchless pipe repair saves time and money, whether it’s to fix a leak, blockage, or backup. It avoids digging trenches that require soil to be refilled and landscaping to be repaired. If the affected pipe is under your yard, driveway, or a wall, trenchless methods let our plumbing technicians access it quickly and effectively. There’s practically no limitation on activities in your home or business. 

Our Trenchless Pipe Repair Process

Every job starts with a comprehensive inspection. Our technicians evaluate the symptoms and use state-of-the-art cameras to see deep inside pipelines. Based on their findings, they determine the best way to approach a repair and plan every step of the project. Next, our team sets up their equipment, accesses the pipeline, and executes the trenchless repair process. Once the repair is complete, a post-repair inspection determines if the restored pipe is functional and structurally sound.
