What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Though trenchless technology is newer than traditional trench sewer repair, it’s already been around for a few decades. Trench sewer line repair requires digging long trenches through your yard to access the pipes. Trenchless avoids that mess, hassle, and lengthy time investment.

For trenchless sewer repair, your plumber feeds a video camera through the pipe to diagnose the problem visually. Although sewer line clogs can be flushed out by hydro jetting, there’s often pipe damage to repair.

Once the issue has been located, we dig a small hole over the area of pipe needing repair. We send a flexible tube coated in epoxy resin through the hole into the pipe, where it expands and hardens to form a durable inner layer as strong or stronger than a new pipe.

Signs You Need Sewer Repair

Even though your sewer line is underground, you can detect a need for repair by looking for warning signs, such as:

  • Foul odors
  • Slow and frequently clogged drains
  • Increased presence of insects
  • Signs of rats or mice
  • Backed up or gurgling toilets
  • Soggy or unusually lush and green patches in your yard
  • An unexplained hike in your water bill
  • Broken and cracked slabs

The Benefits of Trenchless Over Trench Sewer Repair

If you asked any good plumber what repair method they’d choose for their own sewer line, odds are they’ll say trenchless every time. The many significant benefits of choosing trenchless over trench repair include:

  • Protecting your yard and landscaping
  • Saving you money
  • Saving time
  • More environmentally friendly
  • Improving sewer line durability
  • Reducing the need for future repairs
  • Increasing your sewer line’s functionality

The Importance of Choosing a Skilled Plumber

Some plumbing jobs can be handled by a handyman or homeowners themselves. Minor clogs, for example, can be cleared with a plunger. A broken or blocked sewer line, on the other hand, requires a professional plumber and a good one at that.

Not everyone who calls themselves a plumber is as qualified as they need to be for this job. To avoid mistakes, make sure to hire a licensed plumber. Getting and maintaining a plumbing license requires extensive experience and in-depth and ongoing training, like the training plumbers at Meetze Plumbing do to stay current on industry advancements.

When you opt for someone without the expertise of Meetze Plumbing, you risk that plumber:

  • Neglecting to follow building codes
  • Creating more damage by choosing the wrong tool to clear a clog or fix a leak
  • Making a big mess and possibly not finishing the job because they don’t have effective inspection equipment
  • Repairing or connecting pipes incorrectly so that new leaks show up soon after
  • Doing such a poor job that you have to call in someone new to fix the sewer line and any additional damage caused by the unqualified plumber.

When you hire Meetze Plumbing, you know the job will be done right from the start. Contact us online or call (803) 732-3747 today!
