Sewer Repair Basics
The first step of Sewer Line Repair or Replacement is to figure out exactly what the issue is with the sewer line. This is typically done with a Sewer Camera Inspection.

Once the line is clean our technician will be able show you the integrity of the existing sewer line and if there are any further problems such as a crack in the line or an offset joint, and discuss with you all of your options for a sewer line repair.
Traditional vs. Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
Traditional sewer repairs involve digging a large trench in order to access the sewer line. The trench can be substantial in size, as it may be necessary to access several parts of the sewer line. Trenches can also be difficult to repair, as they may require the removal of landscape features like small trees, flowers and bushes. Repairing a landscape can add a significant cost to the project both in terms of time and money, which is why trenchless repairs are quite often preferred.
Trenchless sewer repairs can save a significant amount of time compared to traditional repairs, and they are very cost effective. As the name suggests, they do not require the digging of a trench, which means that most of these projects can be completed in a fraction of the time it takes to totally finish a traditional repair. Trenchless sewer repair utilizes two main methods, pipe lining and pipe bursting, and both of these methods are used in a wide range of different circumstances depending on the type of the project and the nature of the repair.
