Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
No-Dig Sewer Relining
An alternative to excavation or digging up your yard is trenchless, no-dig sewer line repair. It is a permanent solution for catastrophically clogged sewer lines. It is also a seamless solution for improving water flow and ensures no tree roots are able to enter your pipes again.
How Trenchless Sewer Relining Works
A clean drain is the first step in this sewer relining process. This may involve electric cabling and water jetting to remove any clogs or debris. The Levine & Sons technicians will send a specialized camera down your pipe to ensure that you are a good candidate for no-dig relining, and if you are, our technicians will take an exact measurement of your pipe.
Back at our shop, we will fabricate a new sewer line positioned around an inflatable bladder made from high tech resin, epoxy spread and fiberglass mesh. Our technicians will pull the assembly through your existing sewer line and inflate the bladder with steam, baking the resin against your existing pipe and providing a slick, seamless, bulletproof shield against any root growth.
Pros and Cons of Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
Your home or office must be a good candidate for trenchless sewer relining and repair. The new line will mimic the location of your current pipe. While fully collapsed, shifted pipes containing sharp materials may have to be dug out from the surface. No-dig repairs will not fix a “belly” or a dip in the line, but this is often not a problem in the first place.
When we say “trenchless” or “no-dig” sewer line repair, we mean it. Many other companies will advertise “trenchless” repairs, when in fact, they still dig two holes in your yard. Our system goes from your basement to the municipal sewer seamlessly, offering less drag and improved water flow, as well as highly durable protection against invasive tree roots. In no way will your yard or landscaping be disturbed.
Cost of Trenchless Sewer Repair
Trenchless sewer repairs and relining are slightly more expensive than digging, but when you factor in repair costs associated with a patio, lawn or deck that might be in the way, trenchless often turns out to be more reasonably priced. In addition, it is also quicker and less invasive than digging.
Trenchless Repair—A Permanent Solution
Our technicians often do a no-dig sewer line repair as a preventative measure or immediately after repeated flooded basements. It is a permanent solution to any drain problems, and once it is performed you will never have to think of clogged drains again.
