Trenchless Technology in Sacramento, CA

The sewer line that serves a home is one of the more difficult parts of a residential plumbing system to repair or replace. The standard method for many years was to dig down to the sewer line trench, which was time-consuming and tore open property. However, this is no longer the only way to provide sewer line repair and replacement work. Trenchless technology, which is also known as “no-dig technology,” makes the job of repairing or replacing a sewer line faster, less expensive, and less obtrusive.

How Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Works

The development of trenchless technology started in mining and then spread to civic engineering. City planners didn’t want to tear open roads each time they needed to put in pipes or electrical conduits. Trenchless technology is a "lateral" approach that only requires technicians access the ends of a pipeline in order to repair or replace it.

For example, to repair a sewer pipe that’s suffering from leaks, it’s only necessary to do pipe relining to seal up the pipe interior. To put the liner into the pipe, plumbers slide the liner into where the sewer line exits the home. Outside, the plumbers dig a small hole at the property edge to reach the end of the pipeline. There they attach a hydraulic device that pulls the liner through the pipe and sets it into place. In the case of a pipe replacement, a pipe–burster is pulled through the pipe liner, expanding it to shatter the old pipe and put the new one in its place.

Why This "No–Dig Technology" Is Beneficial

Although there’s a bit of digging involved in this "no–dig" method, it isn’t much. And that’s one of the huge advantages of using this technology. Once the job is finished, the plumbers don’t have to landscape a massive gouge across the property or replace ripped up tiles and walkways. They only need to fill in one or two small holes.

Using trenchless technology is also a faster process compared to traditional digging methods. You won’t have to have a ripped apart yard staring at you for a few days while the work is done. Instead, our plumbers will have the sewer line repair or replacement finished in a few hours. This means lower labor costs, savings we pass on to you.
