Trenchless Sewer Repair: The Basics

You are responsible for maintaining your sewer line, AKA lateral line, which runs from your property to the public sewer main at the street. In the old days, when a sewer pipe needed repair, it meant digging up your yard, removing the broken line, and replacing it with a new pipe.

This method is still in use in some places, but it’s very disruptive to the property owners because they must replace all the landscaping, which rarely looks as good as it did before. Conventional sewer pipe repair also takes a lot of time, so it’s inconvenient for homes and businesses.

That’s why we offer trenchless sewer repair, which eliminates all that messy and intrusive digging. Rather than removing the old pipe, we lay a new pipe inside it, using new technology to get the job done fast and with minimal disruption to you.

Also known as pipelining, inversion lining, sock lining or slip lining, trenchless sewer repair typically uses a special camera first to get a look at what’s going on with the old pipe. Then, a pipe liner is inserted inside the old pipe and is cured in place to form a new pipe within a pipe. Our clients appreciate that this is much easier than the traditional alternative.

Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair

Of course, the biggest benefit of using trenchless sewer repair is that it leaves your landscaping, interior floor and wall coverings intact. This is essential if you have spent a long time getting your lawn looking perfect, planting flowers, nurturing trees, new floor or wall coverings. There’s also no digging or damage to your hardscaping, such as patios, walkways, driveways, and parking. There are many other benefits to using trenchless sewer repair:

  • It’s less expensive in the long run because it lasts longer (50-125 years versus 10 or 40), and there’s no money spent on landscape repair or renting heavy machinery.
  • The pipe we use is more resistant to the causes of sewer pipe problems, like tree roots and corrosion.
  • Your job will be done in a few days, versus a week or more of interruption to your home schedule or business operation.
  • This method is safer, with no worry about digging near electrical or gas lines and holes in your yard that endanger kids and pets.
  • It works in places where digging is virtually impossible, such as beneath basements and slabs.
  • It’s ideal for property owners who are selling or intend to list their properties because it doesn’t leave an unsightly mess and increases the value of the property.

Signs You May Need Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

If you’re not sure if you need a sewer pipe repair, here are some signs to watch out for that mean you should call an experienced plumber like Brinks Services right away:

  • Ponding water in the yard when there has been no rain
  • Better plant growth or bright green grass above the sewer line
  • Sewage odors in the yard or inside the property
  • Infestations of vermin or cockroaches
  • New cracks in your foundation or slab
  • All waste drains in the property running slowly
  • Sewage or wastewater backing up into your drains or toilet
  • Gurgling when you flush the toilet
  • Changing water levels in the toilet
  • Unusually high water bills
  • Mold or mildew forming on the interior or exterior
  • Buckling hardwood floors or warm, wet spots on the carpeting
  • The sound of water running when no taps are open

Because there are so many things that can cause sewer line troubles, as we discuss below, you don’t want to try to fix these issues yourself. And that’s why we use imaging first to understand the nature of the problem before attempting repair. We have a number of different trenchless sewer repair products and techniques at our disposal, and we want to customize the solution to your unique needs.

Common Causes of Sewer Pipe Problems

There are a lot of reasons your sewer pipe can fail. Often, it’s due to the pipe being old and more susceptible to collapsing or cracking. The good thing about trenchless sewer repair is it lasts decades longer than old-fashioned sewer pipes, so you won’t have to repeat the repair 50 years from now.

Sometimes the pipe hasn’t been installed properly, or it may be of poor quality. Settling may have occurred that put stress on part of the pipe, and in the San Diego area, we can’t rule out movement of the soil due to earthquakes.

Most commonly, however, we see two major causes of sewer line failure. In the first instance, trees or shrubbery have encroached on the pipe, causing a clog. And clogs may also be caused by substances in your drain that shouldn’t be there. The usual culprits are cooking grease, food acids and feminine hygiene products.
