Do have a bad clog in your sewer line and are considering replacing it?
In the past, that would mean ripping up your yard to dig the pipe out and replace it. Most plumbing companies still only use “trenched repairs” to replace your sewer line, but not at Parker and Sons. We do both traditional “dig” sewer replacements and when it makes more sense we can also do trenchless sewer replacements.
What is a trenchless sewer replacement?
It’s exactly what it sounds like, we won’t need to dig your old piping out. We can use the current tunnel the pipe sits in, to replace it with new piping. All while keeping your home and landscaping relatively undisturbed.
At Parker and Sons we use 2 different trenchless sewer replacements:
In some applications we can use Cured In Place Piping or CIPP. When applicable we use a fiberglass tube which is coated with epoxy resin and inserted into the damaged pipe. Then we blow it up much like you would a balloon. A few hours later, the epoxy cures and hardens, effectively creating a pipe within a pipe.
More often we use a system called Pipe Bursting, essentially a trenchless sewer placement uses a hydraulic head that pushes out and destroys the existing pipe while pulling your new pipe behind it. You use the same tunnel that exists around your current damaged pipe to create space for your new piping.
WHAT DOES TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT MEAN TO YOU?
Saves your landscaping – No more tearing up your yard, driveway, or porch
Saves you money – Trenchless sewer replacement can save you money, especially if you have landscaping or flooring that may need to be replaced with a traditional sewer line replacement
Saves you time – Putting your yard back together can take a lot of time and effort on a traditional sewer line replacement
