Trenchless Sewer Repair in Phoenix and Beyond

A Convenient Solution to Corrosion, Pipe Damage & More

There are lots of different plumbing problems that can terrify homeowners, but few can do so quite like that of a sewer line issue. For many years, replacing a sewer line was a huge and extremely invasive job—plumbers would have to bring heavy equipment to your home or business, dig up your property in order to expose your old sewer line, and then cut it out of the ground and replace it with a new pipe. The process took several days, cost thousands of dollars, and left you to pick up the pieces and restore your property when the job was complete. However, today that whole process may not be necessary at all—with our Phoenix trenchless pipe repair services, Before & After Plumbing and Drain can get you the new sewer line you need without the big dig.

How Trenchless Sewer Repair Works

How does trenchless pipe patch actually work? Is it actually possible to completely replace a pipe without digging it out of the ground? To the surprise of many, the answer is a resounding “yes!” Trenchless sewer line repairs use a combination of two small holes dug on either end of the line being replaced and a flexible pipe that’s pulled into place using a specialized winch tool.

Here's how it works:

  • The process begins with a sewer cleaning service to remove any debris or buildup that may make your sewer line’s shape irregular.
  • After cleaning, your sewer replacement team will dig two small holes, one on either end of the segment of the sewer line that’s being replaced, and then cut the old line off from both your sewer connection and your home.
  • From there, your plumber will feed this specialized tool through your now-separated pipeline. The new pipe initially begins as a soft, pliable cloth liner that is doused in a specialized resin. The new line is then pulled through your old sewer pipe using the specialized tool.
  • Once the new line is in place, your plumber will seal it on one end and then attach the other to an air compressor, inflating it like a balloon so it fills the space inside your old sewer line. It will then be left in place to allow the resin to cure and the new pipe to harden. The result is a water-tight, durable, and extremely lightweight replacement pipe run inside the shell of your old line.
  • Finally, your plumber will connect this new line to your home and sewer and your replacement project is complete!

Trenchless Sewer Repair FAQ

Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?

Trenchless cannot fix all sewer line problems. In order for trenchless to be a possibility, your line needs to be in good enough condition to sustain having this liner run through it. If your slope or run angle is off, your pipe has become warped or deformed, or if it’s become completely broken or separated, you may still have to dig up the line entirely in order to replace it. This is why we begin every sewer line replacement with a comprehensive camera inspection to determine whether trenchless is the right decision for you.

How Long Do Sewer Lines Last?

The lifespan of a sewer line is dependent on a number of factors, including what the sewer pipes are made of and various environmental factors like shifting soil, tree root intrusion, and more. Orangeburg pipes, which are no longer in use due to their brittleness and short lifespans, last around 50 years on average. Clay pipes can last anywhere between 50 and 100 years. Cast-iron pipes last around 75 to 100 years on average, and PVC pipes can last more than 100 years.

How Much Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Cost?

Because every situation is different, there's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It's important to schedule an in-person estimate with your plumber to get an accurate idea of what costs to expect. What we can say is that trenchless sewer repair technology does not require the manpower needed to manually dig a trench, meaning the labor cost is typically less than traditional sewer repair methods. Additionally, since there will be far less disruption to your property, you won't have to worry about the cost of restoring your landscape.
