Trenchless Pipe Repair: What Is It & How Does It Work?

Have you been dealing with drain or sewer line issues for a long period of time? You’ll want to keep reading! You might have a more serious issue with your pipes than you realize. With a trenchless pipe repair, the solution to major pipe problems is obtainable and less stressful. Let our JD Service Now team further explain.

What Is JD’s Trenchless Pipe Repair?

Trenchless pipe repair is a less invasive method to repairing damaged sewer lines. Traditionally, plumbers have to dig large holes in your yard, as well as tear up your home’s foundation and flooring, until they are able to locate the damage; however, trenchless pipe repair can be done without ruining your landscape or your home’s foundation. In addition to minimal disruption to your property, you can expect a 50-year life-use expectancy and excellent warranties on your repair.

How Does JD’s Trenchless Pipe Repair Work?

A trenchless pipe repair utilizes state-of-the-art technology to complete a “pull-in place” method. Let our JD Service Team break this out into steps for you:

  1. Camera inspection: Our experts place a high-definition camera in your pipe and snake it through until they locate the exact source of the problem. With the camera, we are able to measure the exact length of the damage and the diameter of the pipes.
  1. Cleaning: The next step is for our plumbers to use our state-of-the-art tools and technology to remove any tree roots, blockages, build-up, heavy scaling, and corrosion from the damaged area. This restores the pipe’s diameter and flow capacity to prepare it for the lining process.
  1. Pipelining: Custom liners are saturated with epoxy resin before being inserted into the pipe. Once the liner is in the pipe, the high-tech flexible material is inflated to the full circumference of the original pipe. It then hardens inside the damaged pipe, and becomes a brand-new structure that can last as long as 50 years.

How Do I Know If I Need This?

We recommend our trenchless pipe repair for homes that were built during or before the year 1995. This is because pipes after 25 years will begin to corrode, creating holes and cracks from wear-and-tear. If your home was built around this time and you have experienced severe corrosion, pipe cracks, gaps, holes, odors, sewage, or plumbing backups from multiple fixtures or your yard is pooling wastewater, then it's time to give the professionals a call!
