Septic Repairs Without Destroying Your Yard

No one likes to think about having septic problems like broken sewer lines, septic tank backups, or a clogged septic tank. Unfortunately, septic problems are an inevitable part of owning a septic system. These problems can lead to costly consequences if they are ignored or left to develop over time, so it’s important to have any septic issue addressed as soon as it’s noticed. Traditionally, septic repairs were notoriously messy because they involved destructively digging and removing large portions of yards to expose the pipes. Fortunately, there’s a new no-dig solution that is more efficient, faster, and more cost-effective: trenchless sewer repair.

What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is exactly what the name implies: a minimally-invasive method of repairing damaged sewer pipes without any trenching. This means that you do not need to dig up your well-manicured and beautiful yard in order to repair or replace damaged sewer pipes. This method provides an alternative that saves your yard from big trenches and huge piles of dirt. It’s also faster than traditional septic repair methods because it doesn’t involve trenching. It can usually get the job done in as little as a day, rather than several days. With trenchless sewer repair, you can restore the integrity of your sewer pipes without damaging your yard.

Types of Trenchless Sewer Repair

The following are the common trenchless sewer repair methods:

Pipe Bursting

This trenchless sewer repair method involves breaking up the old sewer line while simultaneously replacing it with a new high-density polyethylene pipe. This is done by digging out access holes at both ends and pulling a bursting head through the existing pipe, which breaks up the old sewer line to make room for a new pipe. The bursting head pulls along a new pipe that occupies the space the old pipe took. This method is faster and is a great way of completely fixing failing septic pipes that are beyond repair.

Cured-In-Place Pipe Lining

This method involves inserting a resin-saturated liner into an existing pipe and leaving it to cure for a few hours to form a rigid pipe. Either UV light or heat is used to cure the resin.

Slip Lining

This technique entails inserting a smaller diameter pipe into the old sewer pipe and grouting the annular space. This creates a new pipe within the old one.
