Understanding Trenchless Pipe Lining

Trenchless pipe lining is a non-invasive technique for repairing cracked, corroded, or collapsed sewer and drain lines without the need for digging trenches. It involves inserting a resin-saturated liner into the existing damaged pipe through an entry point, such as a cleanout or access point.

The liner is then inflated to fit tightly against the inner walls of the damaged pipe, creating a new seamless pipe within the old one. The resin is then cured, creating a strong and durable structural barrier that prevents leaks and root intrusion.

Our trenchless services avoids the use of heavy equipment. A crew of just three to four tends to complete the work in one day, and we quickly restore drain service to the sewer line. With no need for a trench, you won't have to hire a landscaper or arrange for any concrete or asphalt repairs.

Trenchless sewer pipe liners offer a 50-year minimum lifespan, which equals that of new pipes. Check out our brief video below to see how a new sewer pipe liner is installed.

Signs You Need Sewer Pipe Lining or Trenchless Pipe Repair or Replacement

When sewer lines wear out or fail, they provide some signs. Look out for these indications that your home or business needs a trenchless pipe repair or replacement:

  • Slow drains

  • Pooled water in drains or yard

  • Sewage odors in home, building or yard

  • Sewage backup

In Seattle and the surrounding areas, tree roots cause extensive sewer line damage. Nearby construction or heavy traffic may exert more pressure than the sewer line can withstand. Some other causes that require trenchless pipe replacement or repair include flushing caustic or acidic chemicals, grease blockages, mineral scale, shifted soil, and soil compaction.

How It Works

Our trenchless company prepares the pipe by inspecting and cleaning it. Our crew measures the line to your specific sewer diameter and length and installs the liner into the sewer line through a clean out or a point of access. We fix pipes without digging up your yard and we've seen it all! Collapsed pipe, cracked or broken pipe, offset pipe, root intrusion, low belly areas, debris, and channel rot. We can fit it!

The Benefits of Trenchless Pipe Lining

  1. Minimally Invasive: As mentioned earlier, trenchless pipe lining requires little to no digging, making it a much less intrusive method compared to traditional excavation methods. This means that your property remains intact, and there is minimal disruption to your daily routine.
  2. Cost-Effective: With traditional sewer and drain repairs, the costs can quickly add up due to extensive labor requirements for digging trenches, repairing damages, and restoring your property. Trenchless pipe lining eliminates the need for all these steps, making it a more cost-effective option.
  3. Durable and Long-Lasting: The resin used in trenchless pipe lining creates a strong and durable barrier against future cracks, leaks, root intrusion, and other common issues with sewer and drain lines. This means that you won't have to worry about any recurring problems anytime soon.
  4. Environmentally Friendly: Traditional pipe repair methods can cause damage to the environment due to extensive digging and use of heavy machinery. Trenchless pipe lining is a much more environmentally friendly option, as it requires minimal digging and disturbance to the surrounding area.
  5. Faster Repair Process: Trenchless pipe lining can be completed in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods, allowing you to get back to your daily routine faster. This is especially beneficial for businesses that cannot afford disruptions or closures due to plumbing issues.
