Trenchless sewer line repair and replacement has many advantages, aside from the fact that you will not have to destroy your landscape. Other advantages of trenchless repair is using pipe bursting technology, which allows you to have your sewer line repaired by the line having two pits dug at either end. This technology gives you an advantage in occasions such as replacing an existing line where many utilities are already crossing over it. This technology also comes in handy when the soil is extremely hard and open trenching becomes very tough to dig. Many examples of tough dirt can be found throughout the Bay Area such as Los Gatos, Saratoga, Livermore, the hills of Hayward and Oakland.

When replacing your sewer line, it is important to understand the different methods of replacement. It should be understood that each and every homeowner has a different situation and therefore the application or technology may be different.

Pipe Lining vs Pipe Bursting

Another application used for trenchless sewer replacement is pipe lining. Most customers cannot see the difference between pipes bursting and pipe lining. Depending on your situation, Built With Freedom Plumbing can evaluate and determine which application is better for you. Pipe lining’s main advantage for replacing a sewer line is convenience and speed of completion. Convenience means that when replacing a sewer line in this technology, the client does not have to have a second pit open in their property or in the city’s property. A new line is attached inside the existing one. Therefore, it seals it from further blockages either from root intrusions or offsets caused by earth movement, which may cause the pipe to eventually break and collapse.

So many customers have asked why not use pipe lining over pipe bursting? The answer is simple. When doing pipe lining, there are many situations where the pipe is already too offset. Or, the pipe could have collapsed to the point that the lining is not an option since it needs a stable pipe to attach to. If you choose pipe bursting, you will have to dig another pit to replace your sewer line. To work, we insert a metal cable inside of the existing line to pull or burst the existing line. If this is possible, assuming that the collapsed pipe has allowed us to get that cable inside, then the pipe bursting removes all the offsets.

Sewer Video Inspection

When dealing with sewer line repair, the best way to understand the best approach to replace it is to offer a sewer video inspection. There is also another way to repair a sewer line, an example would be to replace the sewer line that has a belly or a negative slope. One system that can be helpful will be to use directional drill.If you have any questions about trenchless sewer line replacement in San Jose, San Mateo, and the Bay area, please contact us today.
