How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?

A traditional, trenched sewer repair requires plumbers to dig a large trench in your yard. They need to cut through your well-manicured lawn and beautiful landscaping in order to remove the damaged sewer line and replace it with a new one.

In addition to being messy and unattractive, trenched sewer repair can also severely damage the root systems of trees in your yard, which can kill the trees and fundamentally alter the landscape you’ve invested so much time and money to achieve.

Trenchless sewer repair, also known as pipe bursting, provides an alternative that saves your yard from mountains of dirt and keeps your landscape intact.

The plumber breaks up a small section of the basement floor where the sewer leaves the home. Another hole is dug at the other end of your yard where the sewer begins. Once the plumbers have accessed the sewer at both ends, they feed an elevator cable through the existing sewer line. On one end of the cable, they attach your new sewer line, which is built on-site in your yard out of high-density polyethylene. On the other end, a machine pulls the cable through the old pipe with 60,000 pounds of force.

With the cable comes the new sewer line, led by a wedge that advances through the old sewer, breaking it and pushing the fragments out in all directions. This makes room for your new full-sized sewer to come through.

Many think that the new sewer is smaller in diameter than the old one. This is untrue. The new sewer must be the same size as the old sewer.

The average cost for trenchless sewer line replacement is between $60 – $250 per foot. Depending on how long your sewer line is, you can expect to pay between $3,000 – $25,000 total. Some additional costs may be incurred from the fee of removing the old pipes and if you have to run the line additional yards to account for the city’s connection point. contact LBA Services today!

Typically, sewer line replacement is not covered by homeowners insurance. Check your policy or with your insurance agent to confirm, as some do provide this coverage under certain circumstances.

A conventional sewer replacement typically takes between 4 – 5 days to complete. A trenchless sewer replacement, however, only takes between 1 – 2 days to complete.

The average cost for trenchless sewer line replacement is between $60 – $250 per foot. This is comparable to conventional sewer line replacement which involves excavation and averages $50 – $250 per foot. However, trenchless replacement involves much less disturbance to the property and could actually be more cost beneficial when considering cleanup and landscaping costs.
