Trenchless Sewer Line Services We Offer

Depending on the severity of the damaged pipe and/or main sewer line, there are different trenchless sewer line repair options our plumbers may recommend for your home:

Indianapolis Trenchless Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting places new sewer pipes underground while breaking up the old cast iron pipes along the same path. Pipe bursting equipment can be used to install replacement pipes when the old lines are composed of vitrified clay, concrete, asbestos, or PVC. This method is not preferred for the replacement of cast iron sewer pipes.

The trenchless method for pipe bursting allows a sewer line to be replaced in a day or two in many cases. Compared to trenching and digging to remove old pipes before laying new ones, the amount of time it takes to complete a sewer replacement project is reduced by several days. No extra time or effort is needed to repair landscaping, driveways, and other property fixtures. The new pipe installed is built to last up to 50 years.

The efficient trenchless method has become popular for sewer work in Central Indiana homes. Because it is less disruptive, quicker, and more cost-effective, homeowners as well as plumbing professionals like Mr. Plumber prefer this method whenever possible. Using a trenchless pipe burster, sewer line replacement has become a noninvasive task.

Trenchless Pipe Lining

As long as the structural integrity of the pipe has not been damaged, a slip lining may be all that is needed to improve drainage through the home sewer. The trenchless sewer repair method used to perform repair in an underground sewer pipe is known as pipelining or cure-in-place pipe. This process inserts a resin liner inside the existing buried pipe. The liner is expanded with air pressure to form a seal against the interior pipe walls.

Pipelining creates a patch inside the existing pipe. Even so, it does not restrict wastewater flow through the sewer. Pipe lining can also be used for pipe replacement. The pipe liner is installed through the entire length of the existing sewer pipe, effectively building a new pipe within the old one.

When the diagnosis of your clogged drain requires a repair or replacement of an underground sewer pipe, we know that you don’t want to disturb your property any more than necessary. That’s why our sewer repair and replacement crews are trained in the use of trenchless technology. By choosing trenchless technology when it is applicable, sewer repair or replacement can be done with as little disturbance to your property as possible.


Should I Choose Trenchless Replacement for Sewers? 

Trenchless pipe bursting or pipe lining is typically chosen as the best option to repair or replace underground pipes. This sewer repair without digging method allows homeowners to avoid significant damage to landscaping, hardscaping, walkways, driveways, and other structures on the property – with trenching, this damage is virtually unavoidable. A trench repair or replacement job may also create the need to dig up a portion of the nearby roadway which sometimes creates a need to reroute traffic and may result in damage to city sewer lines.

When it comes to the cost of pipe bursting, the price tag for a trenchless pipe bursting repair or replacement project can be 30 to 50 percent more than when performed using conventional trenching. However, the sewer project price isn’t the only thing to consider with trenching and digging.

Restoring your property after trenching has been performed is often a costly endeavor. Money owed for the repair of roads, city sewers, and traffic rerouting continues to increase your total expenses. When all is said and done, a traditional sewer line replacement can cost around or beyond $20,000.
