When performing routine maintenance and repair on your property’s sewer system, you might have heard about non-traditional methods of sewer system repair and ask yourself “Why should I consider trenchless sewer repair?”

SoCal Sewer Construction would like to tell you more about trenchless replacement and repair. Trenchless technology gives us the ability to aptly repair and address (or even completely replace) your pipe without doing any damage to your landscaping.

There are 2 popular trenchless plumbing repair solutions:

Pipe Bursting — Involves destroying old, busted piping, then replacing it with completely new material. We use a steel bursting head, inserting it into the pipeline at an entry point. We then run a chain from the head to a targeted exit point. Once we have the bursting head in place, we use it to fracture the old, damaged piping. We attach new pipe to the back of the bursting head. This immediately replaces old, busted piping as the bursting head travels through. Pretty neat if you ask us!

Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) Lining — This method reinforces existing pipe, repairing gaps, cracks, or other kinds of faults by treating with an epoxy-coated liner, coating it into the existing pipe. This lining cures to the walls of the pipe — we use a nifty tool called an inflatable bladder. To put it simply, it’s like putting a brand-new pipe inside of the old existing pipe.
