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 pipe underground while breaking up the old cast iron pipes along the same path. Pipe bursting equipment can be used to install replacement pipe 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 pipe.

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 pipe lining, 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.

Pipe lining 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 existing sewer pipe, effectively building a new pipe within the old one.

Is Trenchless Pipe Bursting and Pipe Lining Worth It?

Using a trenchless method to install replacement pipe or make pipe repairs is largely preferred by homeowners because the project can be completed quicker and with less disruption to their properties.

This quick and efficient process results in minimal disruption to your household and property, saves you money, and so much more! The following information shares some of the top benefits of choosing the pipe lining process versus traditional trenching methods used to fix a sewer pipe.

Saves Time

When it comes to repairing a damaged pipe, there are two main options: traditional trenching or pipe lining. Trenching involves excavating the area around the pipe in order to access it, which can be a time-consuming and disruptive process. Pipe lining, on the other hand, is a much less invasive option that can save time. Pipe lining repairs are completed by inserting a liner into the damaged pipe. The liner is then inflated, creating a new inner surface for the pipe. This no-dig method can often be completed in a matter of hours, making it a more convenient option for busy homeowners.

Protects Your Yard

When a pipe bursts or starts to leak, it can cause major damage to your property. In the past, the only way to repair a damaged pipe was to dig up the entire length of the pipe and replace it. This excavation could easily damage your yard and landscaping. However, thanks to advances in technology, it is now possible to repair pipes without digging them up. Pipe lining involves inserting a new pipe into the existing pipe. Since the pipe is inserted from inside the existing one, there is no need for destructive trenching or digging. Pipe lining repairs are less disruptive and can help keep your yard in good shape.

Saves Money

In many cases, pipe lining can be a more cost-effective option than traditional trenching methods. Pipe lining involves inserting a new liner into the damaged pipe and then inflating it so that it takes on the shape of the original pipe. This method can be used to repair pipes that are experiencing corrosion, leaks, or other types of damage. Pipe lining is less disruptive than trenching, and it can often be completed in a fraction of the time. As a result, it is often the most affordable choice to repair sewer pipes.

Environmentally Friendly

The two most common methods of repair are pipe lining and trenching repairs, but which one is more environmentally friendly? Pipe lining involves leaving existing pipes in place and simply repairing the damage from the inside. This means that there is no need to excavate and remove the old pipe, which can lead to a lot of waste. Trenching involves digging up the old pipe, removing it, and replacing it with a new one. This method often results in a lot of wasted material. In conclusion, pipe lining is a more environmentally friendly option for repairing sewer pipes.

Longer Sewer Pipe Lifespan

If you’re dealing with a cracked or broken pipe, you may be wondering whether it’s worth it to repair the damage or simply replace the entire pipe. However, there’s no need to panic – pipe lining repairs are durable and long-lasting, and they can often be completed in a fraction of the time and cost of replacement. Pipe lining works by creating a new inner surface for the damaged pipe, which is then bonded to the existing pipe. This creates a seamless, watertight seal that can withstand heavy use and wear and tear. So if you’re facing a cracked or broken pipe, don’t hesitate to contact a professional for pipe lining repairs.

Indianapolis No-Dig Sewer Line Replacement

Inspecting Sewer Pipes to Assess the Need for No-Dig Sewer Pipe Repair

Slow drains inside the home are often the first sign homeowners see that indicates a potential problem with their sewer. The flow of waste and wastewater can be restricted or blocked in the sewer line due to various causes. Clogs are a possible concern as well as damage to the underground pipe.

Sewer Line Inspection with Video Camera

Mr. Plumber uses camera inspection technology to have a look inside the sewer pipe. During this inspection, a plumber is able to visualize the specific issue affecting the pipe as well as wear it is located.

Sometimes clogs are present, but simply removing them will not restore good drainage in the home. Clogs can develop when sewer pipes have become damaged and one way or another. Collapsed pipes, sagging pipes, or other pipe issues could be to blame. If these issues are not corrected, clogs will continue to form in drainage problems will persist.

Providing Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Options That Fit Your Need

When repair or replacement pipe is needed to correct sewer issues, we use appropriate methods which may include trenchless or traditional trenching. We understand our homeowners favor as little disruption as possible, which is why trenchless pipe bursting or pipe lining is used in many cases. However, there are situations where it is best to trench in order to remove the old pipe and install a new one.

Should I Choose Trenchless Replacement for Sewers?

Trenchless pipe bursting or pipe lining are typically chosen as the best option to repair or replace underground pipes. This 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 continue to increase your total expenses. When all is said and done, a traditional sewer line replacement can cost around or beyond $20,000.
